  2. Bi-Containing Compound Semiconductors for Next Generation Near-to-Mid IR Lasers and FLIR Imagers

    SBC: OSEMI INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    HgCdTe semiconductors possess exorbitant costs and manufacturing limitations when utilized in the 2.5 µm wavelength range. Small amounts of bismuth may be added to conventional III-V  semiconductors to form the III-V-Bi material system. Incorporated bismuth atoms provides an additional free  parameter in band edge design making it possible to shift the valence band independently of the conducti ...

  3. Lightweight Protection Systems of Direct-Current Propulsion Power Link


    With the advent of aircraft propulsion electrification, the need for highly effective, lightweight power protection systems is imperative. Current protection schemes consist of combinations of melting fuses and/or thermo-magnetic circuit breakers. These devices are effective and reliable, but have a number of short-comings such as lack of precision and negative ambient temperature impacts; bulkine ...

  4. UAS Traffic Management for Dense Air Environments and Logistics Efficiencies


    A major challenge is how to enable 100’s or 1000’s of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to fly safely at the same time over an urban or other dense airspace. The proposed STTR Phase I research extends and applies previously developed University of Utah technologies for a a lane-based Urban Air Mobility system, where flights are scheduled along lanes. The proposed effort will specify scenarios of ...

  9. Advanced Extreme Rapid Deployment Emergency Whole Airframe Recovery Parachute System for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Aviation Safety Resources, Inc.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Urban/Advanced Air Mobility (UAM/AAM) technology is advancing rapidly with over 300 designs underway.  Primary to the challenges of an electric Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) is what will happen if the vehicle suffers a failure in flight (especially in VTOL).  Establishment of a level of safety is paramount in the success or failure of the UAM market. Currently, there is not a practical r ...

  10. Novel Honeycomb Hollow Carbon Fiber Composite

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    The current commercial polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based carbon fibers such as IM7 and T300 are limited in modulus at 155 and 130 N/tex respectively. In addition, these fibers are high density (1.75 – 1.93 g/cc) and are known to exhibit buckling behavior under compression stress. If these shortcomings are overcome, a number of new applications within DOD as well as civilian markets can be enabled.  ...
