  4. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

  7. STTR Phase I: P-Type CdSe for Thin-Film Top Cells Enabling High-Efficiency Monolithic Tandem Photovoltaics

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)Phase I project will develop manufacturing, packaging and interface concepts for critical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) components. The intention is to be able to cheaply manufacture robust actuator/sensors wafers, and isolate them from harsh operating environments including natural, mechanical, or electrical extremes. Currently the issues rel ...

  8. Next Generation Hall effect Thruster Concepts

    SBC: Kaufman & Robinson, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this proposal is the research and development of low power (about 100 W) close-drift thruster with improved magnetic field. The patented design of the magnetic field makes possible to dramatically reduce the permissible size of aconventional stationary plasma thruster (SPT) that is limited by magnetic saturation of the inner magnetic path. The thruster with our improved magnetic f ...

  10. Conductive Polymer Elastomers as Gap Treatment Material for Aircraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force maintains a fleet of aircraft that depend on low-observability to successfully carry out their missions. This low-observability depends on a continuity of electrical conductivity at the outer mold line of the aircraft, and thus the panelseams and gaps must be filled with a conducting material. Currently, metal-filled elastomers or resins are used, but these materials suffer from po ...
