  1. 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 ...

  3. Commercial Development of Stabilized Cellular Diagnostics and Therapeutics to Lessen Logistical Burden on the Battlefield

    SBC: Greystone Pharmaceuticals, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Blood loss of over 30% is a life-threatening condition. Excessive blood loss results in hemorrhagic shock (HS), which is caused by insufficient blood perfusion to vital organs. As HS persists or as additional blood is lost, vital organs fail and thepatient dies. HS causes 20% of all battlefield casualties that could otherwise be saved and, annually, 150,000 civilians in the US die from HS. In life ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. The Software Therapist: Usability Problem Diagnosis through Latent Semantic Analysis

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    Knowledge Analysis Technologies (K-A-T) and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) will partner to fulfill this Research and Development effort. We propose an unprecedented suite of Usability Engineering software tools to bebuilt upon the conceptual foundation of Virginia Tech's User Action Framework (UAF). We will use K-A-T's proprietary Latent Semantic Analysis (LS ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Induction-based Thermographic Inspection of Composites

    SBC: Thermal Wave Imaging Inc            Topic: N/A

    Rapid growth in the performance and capabilities of thermography, and the increased use of composite materials in the construction and repair of military and commercial aircraft, has strongly positioned it as a viable NDI technique. In Phase I, ThermalWave Imaging, Inc. and UD-CCM propose to develop an AC coupled, non-contact Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) technique that can evaluate 3-D state o ...

  8. Photonic nose" for chemo- and bio-agent detection: a novel surface enhanced Raman approach"

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    Surface enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) has great potential as a tool chemical and biological detection. First, ultra-sensitivity is provided by remarkable Raman enhancement factors (>10^14); even delving into the ultimate limit for any sensor, singlemolecule detection. Second, since Raman scattering does not require a fluorescent analyte, SERS offers great generality in the range of detectable ...

  10. Closed Loop Frequency Control for Tunable High Quality Factor Filters

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: SB12A005

    The proposed project will focus on the development of closed loop frequency control hardware and algorithms for control of high quality factor tunable microwave filters based upon evanescent mode resonators. The developed controller will be modeled in Matlab to predict overall speed and stability. Furthermore, as size is always a concern for current and next generation DoD systems, the proposed ef ...
