  1. Adaptive Levels of Automation for UAV Supervisory Control

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corporation            Topic: AF04071

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles hold great promise. As engineers provide UAVs with more autonomy, manpower requirements decrease. But increased autonomy replaces judgment with heuristics. It often degrades the remaining human performance. Balance is needed. Phase I demonstrates the feasibility of using game technology to find this balance. “Avant Guard” models a mission with multiple small UAVs. ...

  2. Advanced Antenna Pattern Prediction Software

    SBC: CEM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T018

    Accurate numerical predictions of performance of antennas on aircraft are important in many problems of avionics design and integration. In particular, such predictions are needed for determination of optimal placement of antenna on an aircraft in order to achieve required coverage. The focus of this project is an investigation and development of high-frequency computational methods and codes for ...

  3. Advanced Flow Control Actuators for Fuselage Drag Reduction

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A04082

    Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc. proposes an SBIR program for the adaptation of combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) flow control devices to the task of fuselage drag reduction on rotorcraft. COMPACT uses a small-scale combustion process to produce high velocity pulsed jets for flow control applications and has previously demonstrated strong control authority for reattachment of separated ...

  4. Advanced High Frequency Tunable Filters

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05224

    nGimat proposes to combine MEMS switches with ferroelectric technology to design and manufacture low-loss, low-cost, monolithic, frequency-agile microwave bandpass filters that can be dynamically adjusted in frequency by the application of a DC voltage. In Phase I, nGimat will design and fabricate the circuit, optimize materials, perform modeling and simulation, and build prototype tunable filter ...

  5. Advanced Lithium Ion Battery Manufacturing

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: AF05285

    We propose to use a high rate manufacturing technology recently developed at Excellatron to deposit all-solid-state thin film batteries on an ultra-thin substrate. The all-solid-state lithium batteries have very high cycle life (>10,000 charge/discharge cycles), a wide operating temperature range, a rapid recharge capability, and increased power densities. They are inherently safer than existing ...

  6. Affordable Control/Trajectory Management Systems for Unmanned Air or Space Vehicles

    SBC: Veloxiti, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A major challenge to the successful operation of multiple unmanned vehicles is the necessity to operate effectively and safely under a wide range of changing conditions. In the past, there have been two major paradigms employed to accomplish this control;fully pre-programmed missions and manual control from a remote console. A new paradigm is needed that supports a full range of automated and miss ...

    SBIR Phase II 2002 Department of DefenseAir Force

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: A04052

    A novel approach is proposed for the development of safe lithium-air batteries that offer high-energy storage capacity and extended standby and operational life. The proposed battery will use a lithium anode, an air cathode having an air stable non-volatile electrolyte and a multilayer polymer electrolyte/glass electrolyte barrier to protect the lithium anode from direct reactions with water and ...

  8. Aluminum Nanopowder Production for Nano-Satellite Propulsion

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "MicroCoating Technologies, Inc. (MCT), proposes the novel approach of using the Combustion Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD) process to create aluminum-based nanopowders for use as a solid fuel for nano-satellite propulsion. The aluminum-based nanopowderswill be created through a combination of the CCVD process with an incorporation of a fluidized bed to enable the creation of nano-composite powd ...

  9. An Integrated Suite of Text and Data Mining Tools for Program Managers

    SBC: Search Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal describes an effort to build an integrated suite of tools incorporating text mining and data mining tools for information extraction and knowledge discovery from requirement sources and text databases. Successful management depends in part onidentifying and understanding requirements, discerning linkages among requirements (e.g., commonality, dependency, priority, etc.), and recogni ...

    SBIR Phase II 2002 Department of DefenseArmy

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed research program seeks to develop a totally new methodology for the fabrication of polymer-based electrooptic waveguide devices and subsystems-on-a-chip. These devices are currently produced using conventional spin-coating or dip-coatingtechnology. However, these techniques constrain the selection of polymers for the electrooptic waveguide layer and for the upper and lower cladding ...
