  1. Molecular Design of Particle Surfaces

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Nanoparticles are attracting increasing attention because of their unique properties. Applications based on particles down to nanometer size range are growing rapidly. The ability to coat high performance layers on nanoparticles would offer unsurpassedfunctionality and further broaden the range of technological opportunities. This proposal addresses a sequential chemical synthesis technique that ...

  2. An Automated Acoustic System to Monitor and Classify Birds

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Collisions between aircraft and birds have become an increasing concern for human health and safety. More than four hundred people and over four hundred aircraft have been lost globally. To minimize the number of birdstikes, microphone arrays have beenused to monitor birds near the airport or some critical locations in the airspace. However, the range of existing arrays is only limited to a few h ...

  3. Exploitation of Omnidirectional Reflectivity

    SBC: Omniguide Communications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a set of numerical and analytical tools to address electromagnetic wave propagation in dielectric mirrors and waveguides designed on the principles of omnidirectional reflectivity. Design concepts of the broad frequency range of omnireflectivitywill be presented, as well as the deleterious role of imperfections in scattering to the surface and radiation states will be investigated. Om ...

  4. Implementation of Biomimetic Precision Flight in Autonomous Air Vehicles

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Arizona (UA) propose to investigate, evaluate, and apply the sensory schemes, neural processing, and behavioral strategies of flying insects to the problem of maneuvering flight of an Unmanned Air Vehicle(UAV). We will develop computational models of vision (and other sensors) and insect flight control processes incorporating critical sensor-motor ...

  5. Plasma and Photoionization Approaches for Combustion Initiation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed research will analyze the effect of radical production by non-equilibrium plasmas on the ignition characteristics of methane-air flows. We will develop a plasma ignition module using transverse radio frequency (RF) discharge. Previously,unique stable non-equilibrium RF plasmas have been generated in cold steady-state air and methane flows. Non-intrusive diagnostics including a Four ...

  6. Design of a Microwave ElectroMagneto-Static (MEMS) Thruster for Nanosatellites

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Research Support Instruments, Inc., with the aid of the Princeton University Photonics and Optoelectronic Materials (POEM) group and the Florida Space Institute (FSI), proposes the development of a revolutionary, high specific impulse, microchip-sizedthruster for nanosatellite propulsion. This project will combine recent advances in two areas: larger-sized Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (E ...

  7. Plasma and Photoionization Approaches for Combustion Initiation

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Ignition and flame holding is one of the key problems in development of ram/scramjet engines in the range of flight Mach numbers from about 4 (the minimum Mach number for ramjet operation) to 7. At Mach number less than 7, the static temperature at theentrance to the combustor is below 1,200 K, and the unassisted ignition delay time is in the millisecond range. At flow velocities of 1,000-2,000 m ...

  8. Low Pressure Source for Mass-Selective, Diffusion Assisted Epitaxy

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Dramatic differences in the diffusivities of the constituents of novel thin film materials and structures limit material perfection under far from equilibrium growth conditions. We will develop a new light-mass ion source, compatible with the low pressurerequirements of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), to provide selective enhancement of the motion of surface atoms. Helium or hydrogen ions incident ...

  9. Novel Multifunctional Space Durable Fluoropolymers and Composites

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Triton Systems Inc. with Prof. Dennis W. Smith, Jr. of Clemson University, proposes a Phase II STTR Program to develop new and unique Multi-Functional Space Durable Fluoropolymers and Composites for use by the Air Force and US space communities that willhave properties of stability, thermal control, transparency, and conductivity for ESD - potentially beyond those properties of state of the art sp ...

  10. Carbon-Carbon Composites in Improved Thermo-Oxidative Stability

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Triton Systems responds to the Air Force need to produce intermediate temperature (700-1200¿F) stable carbon-carbon composites. Although such composites are very stable at high temperatures (>1800¿F) in an inert atmosphere, they are susceptible todegradation in hot, oxidizing environments. Triton proposes to utilize high temperature stable, resin transfer moldable (RTM, VARTM) phenyl ethyn ...
