  1. SUPER-HIGH ENERGY DENSITY HIGH VOLTAGE CAPACITORS

    SBC: US Ferroics LLC            Topic: AF09BT05

    The US Ferroics and Texas State University team will analyse theoretically and model the behaviour and feasibility of high energy density storage capacitors based upon giant dielectric constant CCTO materials. We will determine the feasibility of non-linear CCTO based super capacitors. by optimizing material properties and processing as both ceramic and near single crystal solgel film diodes. We w ...

  2. Extreme Wear-Resistant Materials

    SBC: C-K Technologies L.L.C.            Topic: AF09BT19

    Successful completion of the proposed Phase I work outlined and follow-on Phase II work will provide a system to rank existing materials and coatings for severe wear applications. In addition, the ranking system can be utilized to identify desirable properties in new materials and/or coatings that could be developed for specific severe wear applications. The validated system resulting from the Ph ...

  5. Next-generation magnetic flowmeter for characterizing the dynamic behavior of novel energetic materials for space propulsion

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF08T010

    The objective of this program is to build upon many decades of experience with magnetic flowmeters to develop a next-generation system to measure the burning surface admittance of high-energy-density solid propellants at high frequencies and pressures. Using the results of research on solid propellant rocket motor combustion instability from the past fifty years, one can directly measure the ac ...

  6. Advanced Nonlinear Transmission Lines as High Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: HEM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF09BT14

    Current high power microwave technology typically consists of electron beam sources which require high vacuum and large magnets. Such systems are typically difficult to use in the harsh environment associated with the modern battlefield. These systems are very sensitive to vibrations and typically can be easily damaged if dropped or launched from a weapon system. Nonlinear transmission lines, N ...

  7. Reactive Fusion Welding for Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic Composite Joining

    SBC: MO-SCI Corp.            Topic: AF09BT24

    For this Phase I program, MO-SCI Corporation and Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) will develop reactive fusion and reactive plasma welding techniques that are capable of joining ultra-high temperature ceramic (UHTC) composites. Past work at Missouri S&T demonstrated the feasibility of fusion welded UHTC composites. This program will build on the joining successes at M ...

  8. Implementation of Facility Models Using Neural Networks for Improved Control of Wind Tunnels

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECH APPLICATIONS LLC            Topic: AF09BT16

    Test facilities such as wind tunnels require stringent control of test parameters such as wind speed, temperature, pressure, etc., in order to satisfy the objectives of the simulation. Control of test facilities can be significantly improved using mathematical models for the facility behavior that are developed from physical principles. A shortcoming of mathematical control models is that they t ...

  9. Plasmon-Enhanced Laser Desorption Ionization

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT34

    Surface analysis of many classes of large polymers (e.g. non-polar synthetic polymer) by laser desorption mass spectrometry (LDMS) is not possible using existing MALDI matrices. Here, we uniquely address this problem by combining two recent proprietary commercial products available exclusively from Ionwerks. 1) A nanoparticulate ion implanter decorates a surface with size selected metal or alloy n ...

  10. Advanced Ferroelectric Polymers for High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF09BT05

    To shrink the size and weight of pulsed power systems used by various military systems, the Air Force seeks to increase the energy density of their capacitors. Polymers/ceramics nanocomposites are promising materials for such capacitors. They combine the high dielectric constant of the ceramic and the high breakdown strength and processability of polymers. In collaboration with the University o ...
