  1. Ultra Compact, Lightweight, Fast Response Cetane Sensor for Heavy Fuels

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: AF131158

    ABSTRACT: U.S military logistics fuels such as JP-8 and JP-5 are used across the full range of its IC engines, from those adapted from Avgas to Remove Piloted Aircraft (RPA) applications to heavy duty compression ignition engines. Yet unlike commercial diesel fuels, these distillate fuels have no cetane specification, and so vary widely in this key measure of ignition delay. The result can be s ...

  2. Track Refinement from Off-Nominal Break-Up

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: MDA14003

    A missile will sometimes break into smaller pieces, either by design or as a result of a malfunction or collision. The latter cases are called off-nominal, and can be difficult to analyze, especially if not observed directly. Before break-up there is a single parent object. After break-up there are multiple child objects, likely on very different trajectories. A radar is assumed to track the p ...

  3. Tool for Assessing the Recuperation Time from an Electromagnetic Disruption for a Digital System

    SBC: VIGILANT CYBER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF151011

    ABSTRACT:Vigilant Cyber Systems, Inc. (VCS) proposes to design and develop a Toolkit for Assessing Electromagnetic (EM) Disruption Recovery (TAEMDR) to simulate EM disruptions in digital systems and accurately assess operator response to the disruptions. TAEMDR is designed to be intuitive to use allowing test engineers to build very complex models of digital systems of various complexities from si ...

  4. Correlating tactical jet noise characteristics with community annoyance

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF151021

    ABSTRACT:The proposed effort will begin connecting military jet noise source and field properties with waveform and spectral features that correlate with human perception and annoyance. Tactical military aircraft noise evokes significant community response relative to ordinary transportation noise because of its high amplitudes and unique features, such as significant shock content and low-frequen ...

  5. Advanced Electrochemical Power Sources and Lithium-Ion Batteries for Space-Launch Vehicles

    SBC: B S T SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF151067

    ABSTRACT:The goal of this proposed R & D project is to develop safe, low cost, robust lightweight electrochemical power sources for space launch vehicle upper stages, and flight termination batteries for space launch vehicle first stages. The project specifically addresses a Flight Termination Battery (FTS) that weighs less than 7.0 lbs., another Flight Termination System Battery that weighs less ...

  6. 40 Percent Air Mass Zero Efficiency Solar Cells for Space Applications

    SBC: SEMPRIUS INC.            Topic: AF151095

    ABSTRACT:We propose an ultra-low profile hybrid CPV concept that combines multi-junction (MJ) CPV cells capable of 40% efficiency at 1 sun with a low-cost single-junction PV backplane in a design that is lightweight, based on concentration ratios >100X and has a panel thickness 500 W/kg and a wide acceptance angle of >4.0. The low-profile design, combined with world record performance, will yield ...

  7. Atmospheric Plasma Titanium Surface Preparation for Structural Adhesive Bonding

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF151128

    ABSTRACT:Structural adhesive bonding of titanium alloys and other metals offers many advantages over mechanical fasteners, but requires careful surface preparation to avoid premature bond failure. The existing surface treatment options have significant disadvantages, including hazardous material usage, the potential for contamination from debris, and long treatment times. A media-free technology t ...

  8. High Energy Laser Advanced Cell (HELAC) Power System

    SBC: Infinity Fuel Cell and Hydrogen, Inc.            Topic: MDA13021

    New generation electric lasers offer the potential of a compact, lightweight deployable directed energy weapon with projected power levels into the megawatt range.These systems require power generation sources that can near-instantaneously deliver high levels of clean, stable power to the HEL load without disturbing the weapon platform stability or environment.This Proposed Phase II program advanc ...

  9. Development of a Novel Cryostasis Cocktail for High Subzero Banking of Human Organs

    SBC: Sylvatica Biotech, Inc.            Topic: DHP15013

    The technical objective of this Phase 1 proposal is to develop a non-toxic, multi-component, next generation cryostasis cocktail. We seek to develop a unique, holistic and non-toxic approach to bank human organs for several weeks up to a few months. Our approach is based on using the best strategies employed by freeze-tolerant and hibernating animals in nature and then augmenting them with complem ...

  10. Enhanced Biocompatible Materials for the Repair of Ocular Injuries

    SBC: PREMITEC, INC.            Topic: A13085

    The objective of this project is to develop, produce, and commercialize a liquid-tight, field-applicable, ocular patch for wound stabilization and treatment of the eye following a war-related injury to the ocular surface. The patch consists of a curved flexible silicone membrane (similar in size and shape to a contact lens) which has had (1) a novel bio-adhesive
