  1. "Flexible, Low VOC, Rapid-Cure, Topcoat-Compatible Aircraft Primer Coating"

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF07T010

    Current polysulfide based aircraft primers have excellent flexibility/elongation properties and do not fail around seams and fasteners. These primers, however, do not comply with the stringent emission regulations set forth by NESHAP due to excess VOC content. Additionally, these primers cure slowly under humid conditions and reduce the weatherability of topcoat/primer system due to migration of ...

  2. A Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Defensive Space Applications

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF07T036

    In this program, Busek Co. Inc and Stanford University will develop and demonstrate a multi-mode high power plasma gun that can be used for both space propulsion and as a counter-measure against space debris or potentially hostile spacecraft. Investigations of this Coaxial High Energy (CHENG) thruster in the 1980's showed that it can damage a target. Because it is efficient over a wide range of ...

  3. A Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Defensive Space Applications

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF07T036

    Busek Co. Inc. and Stanford University propose to develop and test an advanced high power plasma propulsion concept referred to here as a Coaxial High EnerGy Thruster, or CHENG thruster.  The thruster is first and foremost a propulsive device.  However, because the device is pulsed, compact, and efficient the plasma beam is highly condensed and energetic. For this reason, the thruster may also b ...

  5. A FAP-Activated Proteasome Inhibitor for Killing Solid Tumors

    SBC: ARISAPH PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: 102

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Cancer is the second leading cause of death after heart disease in the US Chemotherapy is a mainstay of treatment after surgical removal of tumors but the balance of clinical benefit versus disabling or life threatening side effects is often uncertain Genotyping of cancers to identify mutated oncogenes has enabled an era of targeted therapy Drugs targeting ...

  7. A Framework for Modeling and Analyzing Complex Distributed Systems

    SBC: VEROMODO, INC.            Topic: AF04T023

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase II project will develop computational support tools for specifying, analyzing, and verifying designs for complex distributed systems, such as communication systems and transportation control systems. The tools will support a modeling language, called TIOA (Timed Input/Output Automata), developed before and during our Phase I project. The overall modeli ...

  8. A High Current Microfabricated Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array with Ballasting

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    High current density carbon nanotube-based field emission arrays with uniform emission will be developed under this program. Working in conjunction with MIT, microfabrication techniques will be used to produce high density arrays of CNT emitters on substrates which incorporate feedback to ensure uniformity of emission between emitters. The feedback techniques employed will minimize thermal effec ...

  9. A Large Size 3D Holographic Display with PR Polymers

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF08T001

    In this STTR project, Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi), teaming up with Prof. Di Bartolo’s group at Boston College, aims at developing a large size (300 mm x 300 mm) updatable 3D display with photorefractive polymers for battlefield and command and control applications. The proposed 3D display system features fast response (feasible to video-rate), high diffraction efficiency, and relati ...

  10. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...
