  1. Quantum and Nanostructure Enhanced Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF13AT13

    ABSTRACT: MicroLink and its collaborators, Rochester Institute of Technology and Magnolia Solar, will develop a high-efficiency, single-junction, epitaxial lift-off (ELO) GaAs solar cell by incorporating nano-scale features, such as quantum dots and optically functional textures, within the solar cell structure. The principal technical objective of the project is to increase the AM0 efficiency o ...

  2. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partner the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) propose to perform research, development and demonstration of experimental quenching free measurements of heat-release in a realistic highly turbulent plasma-assisted flame. Kinetics models will be correspondingly updated and detailed 3D multiphysics simulations will be validated by the measuremen ...

  3. Autonomous UAV Aerodynamic Performance Analysis for the Near-Ship Environment

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T004

    The overall goal of this STTR program is to develop an efficient, high-fidelity, CFD-based design tool for the simulation of ship-board flight testing of autonomous UAV systems. In the first phase of this program, an overall flight simulation framework that employs a modular approach to the flight simulation problem was developed. Phase II of the program demonstrated a fully coupled aircraft/ship ...

  4. Microvascular Composites for Novel Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT09

    ABSTRACT: Living systems rely on pervasive vascular networks to enable a plurality of biological function, exemplified by natural composite structures that are lightweight, high-strength, and capable of mass and energy transport. In contrast, synthetic composites possess high strength-to-weight ratios but lack the dynamic functionality of their natural counterparts. CU Aerospace, with team partne ...

  5. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The innovation proposed is a computationally-tractable, physics-based, portable turbulent combustion modeling strategy for application to a wide range of Air Force aero-propulsive systems, including augmentors, liquid rockets and scramjets. This modeling strategy will be implemented within an Application Programming Interface (API) library suitable for easy integration within Air Force ...

  6. Ultra-Lightweight, High-Efficiency Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells and Arrays

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: N14AT003

    MicroLink Devices and the University of Notre Dame propose to develop an ultra-lightweight, high-efficiency, GaAs-based, multi-junction solar cell that will be suitable for use in future platforms requiring very high specific power (>3.0 kW/kg) and very high areal power density (>370 W/m2). We will achieve this result by reducing the metal content of MicroLinks current inverted metamorphic (IMM), ...

  7. Design Optimization and Analysis of Advanced Exhaust Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N14AT005

    Historically, aircraft engines have featured relatively simple axisymmetric exhaust shapes with several moving parts; however, future engine exhaust systems are expected feature compact, sinuous ducts with complex non-axisymmetric shapes, fixed exit areas, thrust vectoring etc., constructed with a minimum number of moving parts. Their exhaust plumes are currently not well understood; however, LES ...

  8. More Efficient GaN- SiGe based MMICs for Communication and Radar Systems

    SBC: Episensors, Inc.            Topic: N14AT007

    Active Electronic Scanned Array (AESA) radars play a strategic role in surveillance and reconnaissance. A GaN based T/R circuit will be radiation-hard but difficult to integrate with the remainder of the signal chain due to incompatible technologies. SiGe HBT technology, with its high frequency performance and the ability to blend in with CMOS, can act as a bridge between the high frequency III-V ...

  9. Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N14AT016

    In this project, we will develop innovative and advanced display and processing techniques, and innovatively combine existing algorithms, software, and systems, to create a Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS) that assists the submarine operator, planner, and commanding officer (CO) in minimizing the probability that a submarine penetrating into and operating within an A2/AD zone will ...
