  2. Next-Generation Micro-chip Carrier for Cooling of Satellite Payload Electronics

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112057

    ABSTRACT:A chip carrier for high power density electronics made from low CTE materials and embedded with an oscillating heat pipe will be applied to a real world satellite electronics device to transform high heat flux (e.g. 100-300W/cm2) at the device package to a lower heat flux at the heat sink areas - and do so with minimal thermal resistance. Deliverables at conclusion of two-year effort will ...

  5. High Power Density Structural Heat Spreader

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF151094

    ABSTRACT:The proposed research effort will develop passive Oscillating Heat Pipe (OHP) structural heat spreaders to attach to small, ultra-high heat flux devices (e.g., GaN power amplifiers) and dissipate their heat loads uniformly across the spreaders' relatively large heat sinking surfaces - and do so with minimal thermal resistance. The research team will design, model, fabricate, test, and ana ...

  8. Efficient shaping or reshaping of complex 3D parts using engineered residual stress

    SBC: Engineering Software Research And Development, Inc.            Topic: AF141170

    ABSTRACT:Increasing emphasis on affordability of military systems has led to a number of advances in airframe production. For example, high speed machining (HSM) has made it possible to fabricate thin structures that provide improved performance. However, near-surface plastic strains induced by HSM or surface treatments can lead to excessive component distortion such that the component requires re ...

  10. Scaling & Supramolecular Engineering of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

    SBC: Inmondo Tech, Inc.            Topic: A15AT014

    The emergence of metal-organic frameworks has presented an untapped potential for solving US Army individual and collective protection issues. The majority of work on MOF synthesis has been done at lab scale, yielding milligram or gram quantities. To test practical devices, scale up of MOF synthesis processes to kilogram quantities is necessary. However, most large commercial suppliers are uninte ...
