  1. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF04T008

    Colorado Engineering, Inc., a small woman owned business, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are teaming to extend a steganogrpahic architecture for an extensible, distributed application that can be utilized to detect steganographic content in media files, alert the user, and either mitigate (destroy) the content if possible or quarantine the files as appropriate. The initial arc ...

  2. TEMBO® Foam for Morphing Wing Applications

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF06T013

    In recent years there has been significant interest in developing morphing air vehicles that would be able to fly efficiently over a wide range of flight regimes to meet new mission profiles. Though morphing-wing concepts have been around for many years, it has been determined that conventional designs such as swing wings are not adequate for providing the desired improvements. Many of the new m ...

  3. Adaptive Materials for Morphing Aircraft Skins

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF06T017

    In the proposed Phase I program, Composite Technology Development Inc. (CTD) will work with Raytheon Missile Systems to define material requirements for morphing aircraft skins, and will perform material evaluations to demonstrate the feasibility of adaptive materials with dynamically variable stiffness. Georgia Tech Research Corporation (GTRC) will provide mechanical characterization support.

  4. Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF06T005

    While guidelines for stable combustion in certain engine cycles and propellant combinations exist; there is no proven, mechanistic predictive model, particularly for high-performance liquid hydrocarbon-fueled engines. IN Space and Purdue propose to fill this critical need by developing a “testbed” consisting of 1) a predictive combustion stability design tool to mitigate the risk of generating ...

  5. MINIATURIZED ELECTRO/MAGNETO-OPTIC SENSORS FOR THE DETECTION AND MEASUREMENT OF BROADBAND RF PULSES

    SBC: Opteos, Inc.            Topic: AF04T025

    An innovative, high-speed electromagnetic-wave-detection system based on broadband, non-intrusive, miniaturized electro-optic (EO), magneto-optic (MO), and electro-optic voltage (EOV) sensors will be developed for evaluating the effects that pulsed electromagnetic (EM) waves have on specific components of electronic systems. The suite of optically-interrogated sensors, which may be positioned with ...

  6. Soluble Catalysts to Improve Jet Fuel Combustion and Fuel Heat Sink Capacity

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T019

    Rocket Based Combined Cycle (RBCC) propulsion systems likely will be used to launch next-generation space vehicles. However, in the scramjet portion of the cycle, it is difficult to maintain stable combustion because of the high air velocity and short combustor residence times. In addition, the overall heat load in a scramjet engine exceeds the cooling capacity that can be provided from the sens ...

  7. Kinetic Mechanisms for Reacting Flow CFD

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: OSD05T002

    Development of scramjet engines is hindered by the lack of fast and accurate turbulent reacting flow CFD tools. In Phase I of this STTR project, Reaction Systems, LLC investigated a fundamentally new approach to reducing the computational burden of detailed chemistry that holds great promise in lowering this computational burden. This new approach significantly reduces the number of chemical spe ...

  8. Nanodielectrics for High Power Capacitors and Passive Applications

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF06T002

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project seeks to develop and commercialize novel nanodielectrics with the internal structure enabling extremely high values of the dielectric constant. Lightweight, compact, high energy density capacitors capable of operation at several MJ per pulse and repetition rates on the order of 100 pps bursts are needed for directed energy weapons. High alt ...

  9. Nanocatalysts for Hydrocarbon-Fueled Rocket Based Combined Cycle (RBCC) Engines

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF06T019

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project involves the development of homogeneous catalysts for cracking of hydrocarbon fuel. Future concept space vehicles employ regeneratively cooled engines which rely on the fuel to absorb engine heat to ensure survival of the engine structure at a high temperature. Using the fuel to absorb heat and burning the hot fuel efficiently keeps the heat ...

  10. LC Materials for an Innovative EO Architecture: A New Approach for Non-Mechanical Beamsteering

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: AF05T029

    Vescent Photonics, in collaboration with David Walba at the University of Colorado, proposes to continue their successful phase I development of novel LC materials that are suited to a new electro-optic architecture. This architecture provides unprecedented electro-optic phase delay (> 1 mm has been demonstrated) that enables a new class of previously unrealizable photonic devices. Examples incl ...
