  1. Lightweight graphitic foam heat exchangers for fighter aircraft avionics

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: AF06082

    In this phase I SBIR program, a team led by Advanced Ceramics Research Inc. (ACR) proposes an affordable manufacturing technique for high through-thickness thermal conductivity heat sinks for fighter avionics applications. ACR will use its Aquapour™ tooling materials as a support for the fabrication of the heat sinks. In the phase I program, ACR will fabricate sub-scale components, evaluate the ...

  2. Flow-Field Seeding Techniques for Large Transonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF06297

    Optical measurements including laser velocimetry (LV), particle image velocimetry (PIV), and other similar techniques are becoming a more important part of aerodynamic testing. However their implementation into large production wind tunnels is severely hindered by difficulties with flow seeding. Phase I of this program will focus on the problem of seed delivery and dispersal into a transonic strea ...

  3. Commercially Rad-hard Advanced Digital Library (CRADL).

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF05018

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), U.S. Air Force and agencies like the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently rad-hard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes a new core cell library that can meet next generation high ...

  4. Wax Substitutes for Melt Castable Explosive Fills.

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: AF06151

    The use of carnauba wax in melt/castable explosives yields a insensitive explosive formulation that enhances overall safety for the use of these munitions in the field. However, carnauba wax is only obtained from overseas sources and there is no domestic source for this material. This leads to shortages of material and higher prices. There exists a need for a wax substitute to replace the carna ...

  5. End-to-End QoS IP Techniques for Heterogeneous Networks (EQuIP)


    Heterogeneous networks are being utilized to provide the communication infrastructure needed to transport multimedia traffic and mission critical traffic. Currently, there does not exist a complete solution that enables the efficient utilization of heterogeneous environments in order to provide end-to-end security and QoS provisioning to multimedia flows and mission critical data. During Phase I, ...

  6. High Specific Power, Rapid Start-up 95 GHz Source Technology

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: OSD05D02

    Since the 1990's, applications requiring high power (>1 KW) millimeter wave energy have relied on either gyrotrons or multiple gryotwystron amplifiers. While the gryotwystron approach offers bandwidth and single point failure benefits, it is inherently more complex and larger than that of the single gyrotron. The gyrotron however requires a superconducting magnet to create the 3.7 Tesla field ne ...

  7. Automated Analysis of Datalink Transmissions (AADT)

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: AF06317

    The focus of this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) topic is to investigate the feasibility of developing an automated tool for collecting and analyzing data in a JTRS test environment. The tool would provide Automated Analysis of Data link Transmissions (AADT) where a single JTRS terminal may be part of one or more JTRS networks. In the JTRS environment, the possibility exists for a singl ...

  8. Requirements-Based Cost Models

    SBC: INRAD            Topic: OSD05CM3

    Accurate projection of costs remains an intractable problem in the defense industry despite more than a decade of focus on affordability. The impact to DoD acquisition programs, from cost escalation and the cost of countering capability shortfalls, runs to billions of dollars annually. The objective of this proposal is to develop and demonstrate an ontology-based framework for requirements-based ...

  9. Concept-based Information Retrieval and Fusion Engine

    SBC: IXMATCH, INC.            Topic: OSD03030

    Existing search technology is inadequate for addressing the information retrieval requirements of today's complex tasks that require the integration of information from multiple and heterogeneous sources, the discovery of arbitrary and non-obvious relations between the documents, and the uncovering of information that is intentionally trying to hide. The goal of this project is to advance the stat ...

  10. Personal Issue Flight Test Data Recorder with Display

    SBC: KUTTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05320

    In Phase I, Kutta Consulting defined and detailed its vision for a Personal Flight Data Recorder Device with Display (PFDR-D) that gives pilots the ability to record and view aircraft data in the palm of their hand. Kutta, however, did not act alone. The Air Force Flight Test School, Navy Flight Test School, the Army’s Aviation Applied Technology Directorate, Boeing, and UAV auto-pilot manufactu ...
