  1. High-Temperature Metamaterial Emitter For Thermophotovoltaics

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N13AT017

    Combustion thermophotovoltaics (TPV) has the potential to achieve power and energy densities five to ten times that of rechargeable batteries. To date, however, TPV converter devices have not become commercially viable due to their low conversion efficiencies. The poor conversion efficiencies are primarily attributed to a mismatch between the bandgap of the TPV diode and the spectrum of the emitte ...

  2. Prehensor for one atmosphere diving suit

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: N13AT010

    The specific research objectives of this program are to develop a rugged and human equivalent (human-sized, multi-fingered with opposing thumb) underwater robotic hand that mimics the dexterity of a gloved diver and that can replace existing 1-DOF pliers on Navy Atmospheric Diving Suits (ADS) and Navy UUV (Unmanned Underwater Vehicles) without any mechanical seals. Furthermore it is the objective ...

  3. Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-Cost Raw Material

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD12T01

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Connecticut propose a Phase II program to develop enrichment processes for concentrating the rare earth elements (REE) content of a novel, low cost, and abundantly and readily available industrial waste material in the United States. This material has not previously been considered as a domestic REE source. In Phase I, laboratory scale experiments ...

  4. Modeling and Simulation for Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation of Autonomous Multi-Agent Models

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The rapid continued development of unmanned air systems (UAS) is enabling new mission types, in-creased mission effects, and increased airman safety. However, these advances also present numerous challenges to airman-machine interaction, tactics development, and defense. The rapid development pace has produced a situation where new technologies are outpacing the knowledge of how best to ...

  5. Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT22

    ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose a Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS) for on-demand turbulence suppression and control of ionospheric RF propagation. The system uses a lightweight, throttleable directional mechanism for controlled production and dispersal of artificial plasma into the space environment. MVICS relies on three innovations: a nove ...

  9. Development of the Hypersonic Environment- Sensor EO/IR Effects Software (HySEES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: Electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are key to the mission success of future hypersonic vehicles. Although EO/IR sensors have been extensively used for subsonic flight regimes, the hypersonic flight regime creates new conditions and complexities with significant impact on optical sensors. These complexities include turbulent, high temperature gas that is in Non-Local Thermodynamic Equ ...

  10. Development of a Safer Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Battery for Naval Aircraft Applications Through Thermal Management Design

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N14AT006

    Rechargeable lithium ion battery systems can provide power throughout the aircraft, including engine or Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) starting, avionics, emergency, and other systems. Because of their high specific energy/power and potential thermal instability, they can present hazards if improperly designed, tested, handled, or stored. To address the thermal safety issue of Li-ion batteries, EIC La ...
