  2. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the restrictive selections of finer aggregates/fillers, large heat of hydration and thermal stresses, high aut ...

  4. Nanosatellite Ground Station Communications Phased Array Antenna

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A11136

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a man-portable S- and C-band communication antenna that can simultaneously track and communicate with multiple nanosatellites in several planes. We propose a low-cost phased array antenna design whose particular architecture could be adapted to a variety of situations with minimal non-recurring engineering. The phased array architecture will be base ...

  5. A Modular Miniature Satellite Laser Communications Transceiver

    SBC: Space Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF01046

    ABSTRACT: The data transmission capacity required for fixed and tactical information networking continues to increase. Deploying traditional RF or microwave broadband direct line of sight (DLoS) links does not meet future warfighter needs. A key thrust for the Air Force (AF) is Assured Access Communications. This involves the pursuit of affordable low probability of intercept and detect (LPI/D ...

  9. Instrumented Projectiles for Measuring Impact Forces to Characterize Ballistic Behavior of Fabrics and Composites

    SBC: LIUMAN TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A11011

    Due to the complex wave propagation and vibration involved in dynamic loading, commonly used sensors, such as electrical resistance strain gauge and accelerometer, cannot adequately measure the true loading history without a specially designed mechanism. In the Phase I study, an innovative mechanism was successfully designed, constructed and proved to be able to recover the strain wave history cau ...

  10. Electromagnetic Hardened Composite Enclosures for Aircraft Systems

    SBC: BT ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF131110

    ABSTRACT: BTE proposes a multi-component architecture composed of structural composites and thin layers of optimal shielding materials. The structure will provide a 65 to 75% weight reduction over an aluminum or steel enclosure while providing the same structural rigidity and comparable EMI/EMP isolation. The enclosure uses proven technologies, and uses inexpensive stock materials. The enclosur ...
