  1. Electrical Contacts and Packaging for Diamond and Diamondlike High-Power Devices

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF06189

    The purpose of this Phase-I SBIR is to demonstrate the feasibility of using filtered cathodic arc deposition (FCAD) to fabricate improved metal multilayer Ohmic and Schottky contacts to CVD diamond. Polycrystalline CVD diamond substrates will be acquired, on which eight Ohmic and two Schottky contact metal multilayer architectures will be fabricated using FCAD. Linear transmission line model (LTLM ...

  2. A SMART Lego system for Space Structures

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF06273

    Acellent Technologies proposes to develop a modular plug-and-play system for satellite panel pattern recognition and structural integrity determination. The SMART Lego system will be designed to meet the challenges of the plug-and-play structures program namely (1) Allow for efficient transfer of information between panels and components, (2) Manufacturing methods to efficiently embed additional f ...

  3. Refractory Coatings on Mechanically Resilient Insulators


    The purpose of this Phase-II project is to build upon the promising results achieved during Phase-I, where it was shown that ceramic coatings raised the breakdown voltage and reduced the amount of damage and improved the recovery after a breakdown event for plastic insulators. The main goals of the Phase-II are to (1) coat actual insulators for the Shiva and HPM devices for testing, (2) to optimiz ...

  4. Structure from Motion

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04170

    We propose to develop a superior 3D surface reconstruction algorithm that operates on monocular aerial video. High quality pose estimates from inertial data will be used to construct dense depth maps of the 3D environment. Each 3D pixel in the reconstruction will be extracted from multiple views in the redundant video stream to minimize the error in the reconstruction. We will refine and adapt the ...

  5. Non-Invasive Model Attitude and Deformation Measurement

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06298

    A shape capture system for field and industrial capture of surface contours and discontinuous shapes is proposed. The system will provide accuracy of 0.01 inch or better at over 1 million points distributed over a region 100 inches across from three or more images obtained with a high resolution handheld digital camera. A tripod or bench mounted projector projects a pattern onto the surface from ...

  6. Materials for Terahertz Frequencies

    SBC: ADTECH PHOTONICS, INC            Topic: AF06110

    We propose to develop a novel source of THz radiation based on monolithic integration of dual wavelength Quantum cascade laser (QCL) and intersubband difference frequency generator (DFG) with Cerenkov phase-matching. In addition we propose to demonstrate a novel 3-frequency coherent heterodyning detection scheme using a QWIP as a mixer/detector element with an estimated NEP of 10-17W/Hz(1/2). The ...

  7. Develop Flow-Field Seeding for Large Tunnels

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: AF06297

    The Air Force seeks a large production wind tunnel seeding system with full field steering capability. Additionally, the system must offer control of the particle size and density along with minimal maintenance and flow disturbance characteristics. These features will increase tunnel productivity, and compliment nonintrusive flow visualization techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) ...

  8. Optical Pre-Amplifier Pixel Arrays for Laser Radar Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF06142

    The next generation of autonomously guided munition seekers requires the development of imaging LADAR systems capable of detection through obscurants at greater ranges and with greater precision and speed while reducing system cost, weight, and power consumption. Aerius Photonics has developed an advanced optical pre-amplifier pixel technology to enhance the performance of LADAR receiver systems ...

  9. Long Endurance Fuel Cell System for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: AF06180

    For operational and logistic reasons, the warfighter requires longer flight duration hand-launched, Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAVs). PUMA, a 9-ft wingspan SUAV, designed and manufactured by AeroVironment (AV), has a flight duration of four hours on primary batteries, while Dragon Eye, another AV SUAV, with a 4-ft wingspan, has a flight duration of one hour on secondary batteries. Single use ...

  10. Automated Exploitation of High-Gain Acoustic Arrays Using Adaptive/Learning Techniques

    SBC: AETC, INC.            Topic: AF05219

    The current situation in Iraq is making it extremely clear that the urban environment is a chaotic and dangerous battle space. Currently available technology cannot provide the level of real-time situational awareness needed by each individual soldier. DARPA has determined that Sparse Conformal Acoustic Network (SCAN) technology, or soldier-worn acoustic-array “vests,” is a potential solution ...
