  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. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Command and Control, Modeling and Simulation, Training

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: MDA13T005

    This Phase II effort will leverage the existing Standard Space Trainer (SST) Phase III SBIR state-of-the-art research platform to leverage its inherent capabilities as the software engine to support this research effort. The SST has a collection of software that provides development support and a common runtime environment for the use of mission specific plug-ins. This reusable SST Architecture ...

  9. Hybrid Airborne Laser Power System (HALPS)

    SBC: Infinity Fuel Cell and Hydrogen, Inc.            Topic: AF151012

    ABSTRACT: The proposed innovation is a Hybrid Airborne Laser Power System [HALPS] that uses a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell to charge a bank of batteries designed to power a megawatt class High Energy Laser [HEL]. The Infinity Fuel Cell Stack is based on Infinitys advanced Air Independent, Non Flow Through (NFT) fuel cell technology, in development for NASA and the US Navy, modified to meet t ...

  10. Non-Destructive Inspection Data Capture

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF151162

    ABSTRACT: An organizational culture that promotes problem solving is necessary for success in any organization. Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) is the inspection of a structure or component in any manner that will not impair its future usefulness. The purpose of the inspection may be to detect flaws, measure geometric characteristics, determine material structure or composition, or it may characte ...
