  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Alternative Materials to Cu-Be for Landing Gear Bushing/Bearing Applications

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: AF151160

    ABSTRACT: In Air-Force landing gear systems, high strength CuBe alloys are used in bushing applications where high wear resistance and strength is critical. Beryllium can be toxic and presents health concerns; removal from DoD weapons systems is likely, and the need for Be-free replacement materials is critical. QuesTek Innovations, a leader in the field of Integrated Computational Materials Engin ...

  8. Microvascular Composites for Novel Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT09

    Living systems rely on pervasive vascular networks to enable a plurality of biological function, exemplified by natural composite structures that are lightweight, high-strength, and capable of mass and energy transport. In contrast, synthetic composites possess high strength-to-weight ratios but lack the dynamic functionality of their natural counterparts. CU Aerospace, with team partners the Univ ...

  9. Quantum and Nanostructure Enhanced Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF13AT13

    The Air Force, will benefit from the radiation-hard, lightweight, flexible, high-efficiency solar cells, which will enable greater capability on future spacecraft. Spacecraft will have a longer lifetime in high radiation orbits; alternatively, less radiation shielding, and hence less weight, will be required to provide the same endurance available at present. In the longer term, lightweight, flexi ...

  10. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...
