  1. High Z-Conductivity Composite Structures for Low-Observable Aircraft Heat Rejection (1001-951)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131009

    ABSTRACT: Triton Systems Inc., in combination with our partner Northrop-Grumman Corporation proposes to develop a high performance composite heat exchanger system that can be integrated into airframe structures of unmanned and manned systems to provide thermal management for aircraft systems and/or mission payload. The key ingredient of the composite heat exchanger is a novel technique for pierc ...

  2. Micromachined Fused Silica Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: We propose to fabricate a high performance signal and pump combiner for high-power fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. We will use advanced glass micromachining processes that will alleviate the fabrication challenges associated with either tapered fused fiber couplers or side-pumped fused coupler. A central robust fused silica structure will be micromachined. The pumps and signal fib ...

  4. Ultra-High Density Ion Propulsion From Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: Busek Co. Inc. and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) propose to explore the physical limits of ionic liquid propulsion via development of new theory to explain effects of close packing emission density and to predict performance limits. The research is motivated by observations and tests demonstrating that emission from 2-dimensional porous surfaces yields order of magnitude g ...

  5. Passive Wireless Corrosion-Monitoring Tags

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: A12aT001

    EngeniusMicro and the Georgia Institute of Technology propose a passive wireless sensor platform for the monitoring of corrosion on aircraft and for stored aircraft components. Multiple volumes, chambers, and compartments within aircraft are susceptible to corrosion damage because they are exposed to moisture, they trap heat, and they are difficult to inspect. Placing passive wireless corrosion se ...

  6. Space Based Hyper-Spectral Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF131146

    ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences Inc. (SSI) proposes to address the need for improved battlespace intelligence by developing the Battlespace Large Area Spectral-imaging Transient-event (BLAST) sensor, optimized for space-based target detection. BLAST is a highly efficient, fast framing, Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) system with high spatial and temporal resolution. The system will detect, locate and i ...

  7. Reusable Extended Artificial Light Source

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF131176

    ABSTRACT: To capture images of high speed test events, the government uses high speed photography with high brightness illumination. The government would like to replace existing PF300 flashbulbs with a solution that meets or exceeds current specifications for reusable extended artificial light sources. BD & E proposes a collection of solid-state Lighting Modules based on high powered white Li ...

  9. Terrain Impact Decision Extensions (TIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A13019

    The US Army faces a significant burden in planning sustainment operations. Currently, logistics planners must manually evaluate potential emplacement sites to determine their terrain suitability. Sites subject to rainfall-runoff responses such as ponding are ill-suited for emplacements, but evaluating the likelihood of such responses requires significant time and expertise. To reduce the time and ...

  10. Nano-Inspired Broadband Photovoltaics Sheets

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A13020

    This proposed Phase I SBIR program with the US Army will focus on demonstrating ultra-low dark current in flexible, high-efficiency photovoltaic cells with nano-enhanced absorbers. By extending infrared absorption, power conversion efficiencies in single-junction, nano-enhanced solar cells can potentially meet or even exceed the Shockley-Queisser limit. Novel device designs utilizing advanced ba ...
