  1. Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF071103

    Transparent conductive indium tin oxide (ITO) coatings are used on the canopies of certain USAF aircraft for a variety of electromagnetic functions. However, the aircraft canopies suffer from short service lifetimes and must be replaced often because today’s ITO coatings exhibit poor mechanical durability and scratch resistance as aircraft fly through rain and dust. The need for frequent replace ...

  2. Protective conformal coatings for spacecraft polymers and paints

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF07T011

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to further develop its non-line of sight, energetic coating system to deposit protective thin film coatings for polymers in the low earth orbit. Numerous satellites costing $25M to $1B reside in LEO and the lifetime time of the polymers used in these assets is limited by atomic oxygen (AO) erosion, UV/VUV damage and the negative effects of static charging. ...

  3. A SMART Lego system for Space Structures

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF06273

    Acellent Technologies proposes to develop a modular plug-and-play SMART Lego SHM system to obtain real-time information for panel identification and damage detection in satellite panels during storage, upon assembly and prior to launch. This will potentially enable development of low cost, plug-and-play (PnP) satellite structures to provide an Operational Responsive Space (ORS) capability for the ...

  4. Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071103

    Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is currently used as a transparent electrically conductive coating on aircraft canopies to provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding for electronic components. The problem with ITO is that it is relatively soft and scratches easily, requiring frequent replacement of the windscreen, leading to high maintenance costs and aircraft downtime. In addition, ITO is applie ...

  5. Innovative Control Effectors for Common Aerovehicle (CAVs)

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071266

    Acree Technologies Incorporated (ATI) has demonstrated the effectiveness of using an innovative Cathodic Arc Plasma Source (CAPS) to produce high-density plasma for control of supersonic air flow. ATI proposes to use its CAPS system for actuation on the Common Aero Vehicle (CAV). The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using the CAPS to produce high-density plasma for a ...

  6. Inter-Turbine Burner Technology Demonstration

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: OSD07ES9

    The development of an Inter-Turbine Burner (ITB) for improving the part power performance of small gas turbine engines is proposed. An Inter-Turbine Burner is a second combustor placed between the gas generator exit and the power turbine to “reheat” the engine gas stream before it enters the power turbine. The Inter-Turbine burner is used to increase engine power at the maximum power setting, ...

  7. High Apparent Temperature Diffraction-Limited Cryogenic Scene Projector

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF071347

    Aerius photonics is proposing a cryogenic compatible scene projector designed for the test and evaluation of multi-spectral missile interceptor systems. This technology is based on the high apparent temperature MWIR scene projector concept developed by Aerius for the MDA and currently being constructed for KHILS facility. The proposed scene projector, called the Cryogenic Scalable Infrared Proje ...

  8. Practical Broadband Cryogenic Polarization Controlled 512x512 Scene Projector

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF071340

    Aerius Photonics is proposing a highly practical and effective plan to develop a scene projector with 512 x 512 pixels that allows the polarization state of each pixel to be independently and dynamically controlled at full frame rates. The projector would utilize two separate randomly polarized resistor array systems with orthogonal linear polarizers and beam combine the output of those systems t ...

  9. High-Density MEMS-Based Optical Switch for Space Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF071243

    Aerius Photonics has partnered with MEMS-based optical switch manufacturer Calient Networks to design and deliver a new generation of high-density MEMS-based all-optical router for use in space applications. This effort leverages substantial investment already made by Calient in the development of commercial MEMS-based routers as well as their recent advancements in very power efficient high-dens ...

  10. Optical Void Sensing for Deeply Buried Hardened Target Penetrators

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF071146

    Aerius Photonics proposes an optical void sensor that will meet the objectives of the Air Force for a survivable, reliable and retrofit compatible non-inertial void detector for deeply buried hardened target penetrators. The sensor will draw low power, is compact and has the potential for precise distance ranging and void counting, even in narrow voids and clutter filled situations. To achieve th ...
