  1. Next-Generation Micro-chip Carrier for Cooling of Satellite Payload Electronics

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112057

    ABSTRACT:A chip carrier for high power density electronics made from low CTE materials and embedded with an oscillating heat pipe will be applied to a real world satellite electronics device to transform high heat flux (e.g. 100-300W/cm2) at the device package to a lower heat flux at the heat sink areas - and do so with minimal thermal resistance. Deliverables at conclusion of two-year effort will ...

  3. High Power Density Structural Heat Spreader

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF151094

    ABSTRACT:The proposed research effort will develop passive Oscillating Heat Pipe (OHP) structural heat spreaders to attach to small, ultra-high heat flux devices (e.g., GaN power amplifiers) and dissipate their heat loads uniformly across the spreaders' relatively large heat sinking surfaces - and do so with minimal thermal resistance. The research team will design, model, fabricate, test, and ana ...

  4. Efficient shaping or reshaping of complex 3D parts using engineered residual stress

    SBC: Engineering Software Research And Development, Inc.            Topic: AF141170

    ABSTRACT:Increasing emphasis on affordability of military systems has led to a number of advances in airframe production. For example, high speed machining (HSM) has made it possible to fabricate thin structures that provide improved performance. However, near-surface plastic strains induced by HSM or surface treatments can lead to excessive component distortion such that the component requires re ...

  5. Image Quality Indicator(s) and Software for Computed Radiography (CR)

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: AF131191

    ABSTRACT:This Phase II project will include the research, development, implementation and deployment of a method, new image quality indicators (IQIs) and software algorithms to automatically assist in the verification of computed radiography (CR) image quality for nondestructive testing (NDT) of military airframes.Compared to existing IQIs and methods, the new approaches will more comprehensively, ...
