  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


    "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. High Strength, Oxidation Resistant Carbon/Carbon Composites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Higher strength carbon/carbon (C/C) composites are required if such components are to replace currently used titanium products in the aircraft industry. This Phase I STTR addresses this need with the development of C/C composites with a 3-D fiberarchitecture and a reinforced carbon matrix. The 3-D preform composites have demonstrated superior compressive and tensile strength in relationship to ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Intermediate Temperature Carbon/Carbon Structures

    SBC: Pilato Consulting            Topic: N/A

    Carbon-carbon structures are traditionally designed and optimized for high temperature applications. They have very high temperature capability under inert atmospheric conditions but suffer from thermo-oxidative instability above ~700oF without oxidationprotection and result in poor mechanical strength. Nanoparticles based on either nanoclay or POSS materials in conjunction with tethering these ...

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


    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 ...

  9. Plasma and Photoionization Approaches for Combustion Initiation


    "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 ...

  10. A Scaleable Method for Fabricating Nonlinear Photonic Crystals


    The University of Wisconsin has developed an MOCVD process by which micron-scale and nanoscale high contrast (air/LiNbO3) epitaxial film photonic structures can be fabricated. As a consequence of the large index difference, as well as the large secondorder optical nonlinearity of LiNbO3, very compact all-optical and electro-optic devices based on index-confined and photonic bandgap defect wavegu ...
