  1. Frequency-agile monolithic Ka-band filter

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: A07T009

    Future multiband communications systems demand frequency agile filters. While such devices are available at millimeter wave, they suffer from large size and high cost, among others. For this STTR Phase II effort, nGimat, working with Georgia Tech, will develop a miniaturized, low-loss, tunable Ka-band bandpass filter using its low-cost tunable thin film technology. In Phase I, nGimat has succes ...

  2. Nanotailored Carbon Fibers

    SBC: NANO ENGINEERED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: AF08T028

    Polyacrylonitrile (PAN)/carbon nanotube (CNT) composite fibers will be spun to obtain precursor fiber with about 2 micrometer diameter. By optimizing stabilization and carbonization conditions, high tensile strength carbon fiber will be obtained with a diameter of about 1 micrometer. CNT incoporation can lead to the ordered graphitic structure in the vicinity of CNT, which will improve the mechani ...

  3. High Temperature High Frequency MEMS Sensors

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: AF07T014

    ENGeniousMicro proposes to develop a micromachined sensor that will operate at high temperatures with high frequency response to measure surface pressure, shear stress, and heat flux distributions. Through the use of micromachining technologies, we will develop a sensor that has a small form factor and can be flush mounted on the object to be monitored. Our sensor will be designed to have a freq ...

  8. Neural-Network-Based Adaptive Flow Control for Maneuvering Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Conventional flow control methods employ actuation frequencies that are the same order as the characteristic frequency of the flow. Georgia Tech has demonstrated novel high-frequency synthetic jet actuation to modify the apparent aerodynamic shape of aerosurfaces and achieve quasi-steady flow reattachment over an otherwise separated airfoil. Practical application of this technology in dynamic ma ...
