  1. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...

  2. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  3. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    Electron Energy Corporation and University of Delaware propose to develop multiphase nanocomposite magnets with room temperature maximum energy product potentially up to 100 MGOe for high temperature applications. Multiphase nanocomposite magnets could take the advantage of the extremely high coercivity of SmCo alloys, the high saturation magnetization and moderate intrinsic coercivity of other ha ...

  4. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  5. Calculation and Testing of Alternating Current (AC) Losses in Coated Conductors and the Development of Practical Conductors and Coils for Operational

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: AF03T023

    The use of coated HT superconductors in the ac windings of electrical machines offers the possibility of much lighter electrical devices. To use these conductors at proposed high frequencies, present “as-manufactured” conductor geometries must be modified to reduce their ac loss by using fine filaments and other topologies). Equally important are more global winding losses requiring suitable ...

  6. Fast Laser Pulse Shaping for Molecular Control and CB Detection

    SBC: Proteus Optics Llc            Topic: A04T008

    We propose the development of a commercial prototype laser pulse shaping system for the defense, industrial and academic communities for advanced laser processing applications. The system will be used for closed-loop control of molecular reactions and dynamics by coherent electromagnetic fields. During Phase I we built and tested a breadboard system and due to its simplified optical system showed ...

  7. Terrain Analysis for Human-Robot Interaction (TAH-RI)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: A04T001

    Understanding the right thing to do in the battlespace is contingent on knowledge of the terrain and its tactical importance for military operations (e.g., terrain restricts or enhances abilities to observe, move, and shoot). The product of this Phase II effort will be TAH-RI, a COTS software component for systems developers, enabling them to easily make systems capable of identifying terrain fea ...
