  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. High-Performance, Low SWaP, Radiation Hardened and Vibrationally Robust Inertial Measurement Unit Employing Fast Light Technology For Missile Defense

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA14019

    There is a need for new types of IMUs, with better accuracy than the state of the art. Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) has been developing a Fast Light Optical Gyroscope (FLOG) that can improve the accuracy of rotation sensing by nearly six orders of magnitude. Alternatively, for a given accuracy need, the FLOG can be very small. DOT has also developed a Fast Light Optical Accelerometer (FLOAC ...

  5. High Performance Noise-Suppressing Long Wavelength Infrared Mercury Cadmium Telluride Focal Plane Array (FPA) Sensors

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: MDA14021

    We propose the development of long wavelength infrared (LWIR) sensors based on HgCdTe in a novel noise-suppressing high temperature barrier (HTB) architecture, which combines the benefits of unipolar nBn and non-equilibrium, Auger-suppressing high operating temperature (HOT) structures. The proposed design is beneficial for controlling carrier conduction to minimize the number of majority and min ...

  6. Increased Lifetime and Decreased Dark Current in Ga-Containing Longwave Infrared (LWIR) Type-II Superlattices (T2SL) through Defect Identification and Mitigation

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA14021

    Absorber layers based on Type-II superlattices (T2SLs) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. GaSb and InAs) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, dark currents and short carrier lifetimes in the Ga-containing T2SL are significant problems. It is presently suspected that the short carrier lifetimes and some dark current arise due to a native point defect, possi ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
