  3. A Novel High Efficiency Thermal-Electrochemical Device for Hybrid PV/T Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: There are a growing number of military (and civilian) applications for unmanned aircraft. To extend their mission capabilities, unmanned aircraft can incorporate solar panels onto their structure to generate electrical energy from the sun. Solar cell efficiency is inversely proportional to the cell's operating temperature. Therefore, thermal management of solar modules is import ...

  4. A Novel Technology to Produce Yb:Sr-FAP Transparent Laser Host Ceramics in Non-Isotropic Materials

    SBC: Texas Biochemicals Incorporated            Topic: AF14AT26

    ABSTRACT: To fabricate transparent ceramics composed of anisotropic laser gain media, the crystal orientations of micro-domains should be aligned identically. Current method involve application of high magnetic field. Texas Biochemicals Inc. recently developed a novel technology to produce faceted hexagonal prism c axis oriented Yb: Sr-FAP [Yb: Sr5(PO4)3F nanocrystallites and sintered into transp ...

  10. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...
