  1. 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 ...

  2. Advanced Window Materials for High Energy Propulsion

    SBC: CERANOVA CORPORATION            Topic: AF07T009

    Window materials are an essential component of some advanced propulsion concepts which require high pressures, high temperatures, low energy losses, and low weights. Window materials must possess a combination of properties such as high mechanical strength, high melting point, high transparency, low density, and good resistance to the operating environment. CeraNova proposes the development of f ...

  4. Composite Transistor Array Vapor Sensor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: AF08T015

    The Giner, Inc. Phase I program will examine the response to explosive and toxic gas simulants of sensor arrays using a combination of specifically doped metal oxides (DMO) developed at Giner, Inc. in conjunction with metallophthalocyanine (MPc) thin films developed at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Electronic controls developed for the MPc sensors will be evaluated also for th ...

  5. A miniature RFID sensor for biological warfare agents (BWAs) detection

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF07T016

    In this proposal, Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) and the University of California at Davis (UC Davis) detail the development of a novel miniature RFID sensor for BWA tracking and identification at a standoff distance. The key innovations of our approach include: a)The design of a planar inverted- F antenna (PIFA) on the RFID chip to receive and transmit RF signal. The compactness, good impedanc ...

  6. MMF-based Failure Initiation and Progression for Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: AF08T025

    Micromechanics of failure (MMF) is a new approach that links strength and life of fiber, matrix and their interfaces to those of plies, laminates and structures. Use of MMF for static strength and its extension to creep rupture and fatigue life prediction already show great promise. MMF for this proposal will be extended to interlaminar hybrids like Tigr and Glare, but also many structural details ...

  7. Commercial Methods for Production of Orientation Patterned GaAs

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF06T010

    The Air Force desires development of a commercial production source for nonlinear optical (NLO) gallium arsenide semiconductor crystals with orientation patterning, i.e., OP-GaAs. The Phase I project has demonstrated feasibility for a fabrication method of OP-GaAs which exclusively utilizes processes anticipated to be available from commercial vendors and at Physical Sciences Inc (PSI). Molecula ...

  9. Adaptive Hierarchical Multiple Models to Control Dynamic Systems

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF07T012

    Modern control theory offers mathematically rigorous and powerful solutions to many dynamic systems. Its limitations are that the classes of dynamic systems covered by the theory are limited to linear systems or certain well-structured nonlinear systems, and the adaptation of the controllers are often slow if the controller parameters are far away from their desired values. On the other hand, the ...

  10. Advanced Friction Stir Processing for Ultra-refined Microstructure Development of Aluminum 7XXX Series Alloys

    SBC: SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF07T038

    Surface Treatment Technologies (ST2) has developed a high strength, weldable, corrosion resistant aluminum alloy. In addition, ST2 has developed a patent pending approach for fabricating thermally stable high strength alloys with ultra-fine grain structures. This approach allows the material to be heat treated after friction stir processing without abnormal grain growth. The ultra-fine grain struc ...
