  1. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    This project seeks to define the performance requirements for a wireless Digital Train Line (WiDTL) through definition of functionality and performance expected, and translating these into network equipment specifications and architecture that wireless network equipment manufacturers can build towards. The effort will include an in-depth review of wireless technology as it applies to sensitive and ...

  2. Next Generation Freight Truck for Autorack Cars

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR3

    Autorack cars transport one of the most valuable commodities – fully assembled Automobiles. Due to the longer and higher profile of an Autorack and the fact that heavy automobiles are loaded on to high deck levels, freight trucks with improved track-to-vehicle dynamics as well as higher speed capabilities are desired in anticipation of higher speed passenger service and shared corridors. Unique ...

  3. Multi-ITB-Turbo Fan for Advanced Propulsion and Power Concepts for Large Size Class Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Equipped with Variable Turbine

    SBC: SPYTEK AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: AF131160

    ABSTRACT: With the roll of UAVs becoming more complex, and their use more widespread, tactical requirements for performance, reliability, maintainability, supportability, and most recently low cost, have created the need for an advanced cycle propulsion system. Such an engine, must address the conflicting requirements, of large amounts of electrical power generation, while producing substantial i ...

  4. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partner the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) propose to perform research, development and demonstration of experimental quenching free measurements of heat-release in a realistic highly turbulent plasma-assisted flame. Kinetics models will be correspondingly updated and detailed 3D multiphysics simulations will be validated by the measurements ...

  5. Advanced Detectors for Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) Communications

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:Using lasers as signal carriers, FSO laser communications (Laser-Com) can provide a line-of-sight, wireless, high-bandwidth, communication link between remote sites. Because of the reduced scattering, long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) 8 13 um radiation possesses significantly better all-weather transmission than the shorter wavelengths in use today. The superior transmission through common ...

  6. Monopropellant Propulsion Unit for Cubesats (MPUC) Thruster System

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF151066

    ABSTRACT:CU Aerospace (CUA) proposes the development of the Monopropellant Propulsion Unit for CubeSats (MPUC) thruster, a breakthrough complete propulsion system technology for CubeSats and other small satellites, because of its high performance, nontoxic chemical monopropellant and benign storage characteristics. MPUC pushes the envelope of existing propulsion technologies by significantly incre ...

  7. High-Efficiency, Radiation-Hard Double Epitaxial Lift-Off Multi-Junction Solar Cell

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF151095

    ABSTRACT:MicroLink Devices, in collaboration with Dr. Scott Messenger at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), proposes to develop an ultra-high efficiency, radiation-hard, six-junction solar cell for application to Air Force space missions. The proposed technology will comprise lattice-matched subcells grown on InP and GaAs substrates that are mechanically attached in a monolithic s ...

  8. Objective Measurement Tool for Detection and Monitoring of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: DHP15015

    We propose to take our hearing-test device, which was designed to support research in advancing hearing-conservation programs, and ruggedize it for use in theater. Five key challenges that make the commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems unsuitable for HCPs, will be overcome. We will: 1) implement next-generation otoacoustic emission tests to enable OAE measurements in noise-damaged ears, 2) add smar ...

  9. Improved III-V Antimonide-Based Superlattice Materials From Growth and Defect Modeling

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A15041

    Absorber layers based on strained layer superlattice (SLS) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. GaSb and InAs/Sb) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, dark currents and short carrier lifetimes in SLS are still significant problems. It is presently suspected that the short carrier lifetimes and some dark current arise due to a native point defect, possibly the ...

  10. HgCdTe Material Improvements for High Operating Temperatures

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: A15024

    High performance HgCdTe infrared detector arrays operating at 77 K can be tailored for response across the infrared spectrum (1 to 14 micron and beyond), and are utilized in a variety of military and civilian systems for infrared imaging. Reducing cooling requirements allows integration in lighter and more compact systems. Good performance at higher operating temperatures can be provided by a syst ...
