  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 ...

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


    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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. An Extensible and Scalable Framework for Formal Modeling, Analysis, and Development of Distributed Systems

    SBC: VEROMODO, INC.            Topic: AF07T019

    This STTR Phase I project has the goal of substantially advancing the state of the art in constructing software for complex distributed systems, including Internet communication protocols; protocols for communication and computation in mobile ad hoc networks; robot and transportation control systems; and security protocols. The proposed multi-pronged approach includes defining formal languages tha ...

  8. Atomic layer deposition of atomic oxygen and UV resistant coatings for spacecraft

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF07T011

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Harvard University propose to develop atomic oxygen and UV/VUV-resistant conductive coatings for spacecraft in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). We will use Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) to deposit thin conformal pinhole-free films of conductive oxides on Kapton coupons. We will evaluate the performance of the coatings with PSI's FAST^TM atomic oxygen source. We will demon ...

  10. CIFTS:Communications and Information Flow Tracking System

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T027

    In organizations such as the Air and Space Operations Center (AOC), team members collaboratively process information about time sensitive targets for prosecution in time constrained situations. To assure the highest degree of performance, operators undergo periodic training. Training effectiveness is maximized by providing performance measurement and feedback to operators, so they can learn from t ...
