  1. Nanodielectrics with Nonlinear Response for High Power Microwave Generation

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF08T030

    Fine grained BST ceramics with high density has attractive properties including nonlinearity, low dielectric loss and high dielectric breakdown strength to realize high tunability. In Phase I program we demonstrated that modification of powder characteristics and composition in nano BST powder resulted in greater than 65% tunability at 250KV/cm with ~500KV/cm breakdown strength and Q value greate ...

  2. A Toolkit for Deployable Best Practices

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: OSD08T002

    Discovery Machine, Inc. (DMI) is partnered with Pennsylvania State University and SAIC (the DMI team) to produce a best practices capture system that goes beyond the storage and dissemination of lessons learned. The proposed system will leverage warfighters’ specific knowledge as deployable knowledge assets. These knowledge assets will be executable best practices that can be embedded in job ...

  3. Dynamics-based Nondestructive Structural Health Monitoring Techniques

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF08T016

    FBS, Inc. and Penn State, during Phase I of its Air Force Phase I STTR contract, demonstrated high sensitivity defect detection in both isotropic metallic and anisotropic composite structures using a novel ultrasonic modal analysis technique (UMAT). The resulting technology which is a merge of vibration modal analysis and the ultrasonic guided wave technique has shown great potential for providing ...

  4. Efficient high power tunable THz source based on all fiber-based pulsed fiber lasers at ~ 2 mm"

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF08T009

    In Phase I, NP Photonics has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of a fiber-based THz source that can generate high power, narrow linewidth, and tunable THz radiation by leveraging NP’s proprietary unique fibers, fiber lasers/amplifiers, and THz techniques. In Phase II, we will develop the monolithic high power ~ 2 micron pulsed fiber laser system for the proposed fiber-based THz source un ...

  5. Biomimetics for treating biofilm-embedded infections

    SBC: PolyMedix, Inc.            Topic: ARMY09T004

    Multi-drug resistant (MDR) biofilms are one of the most difficult bacterial infections to treat. Current antibiotics are increasingly unable to cure these infections; underscoring the need to develop new antibiotics that operate through novel mechanisms which overcome the biofilm environment. PolyMedix has discovered a novel class of antibiotics, SMAMPS (small mimics of antimicrobial peptides), t ...

  6. Field/Circuit Computational Modeling and Simulation Software Tool

    SBC: REMCOM, INC.            Topic: ARMY08T004

    The goal of this effort is to create a hybrid software product that combines a full wave electromagnetic solver with a sophisticated circuit simulator creating an engineering tool that is capable of simulating the complete system of complex electronic devices. This tool will be powerful asset for a wide variety of government and industry users for applications that combine field and circuit intera ...

  7. Analysis of Distributed Control of Turbine Engines

    SBC: Scientific Monitoring, Inc.            Topic: AF08T026

    Scientific Monitoring, Inc. (SMI), Stanford University (SU) and Pratt and Whitney (PW) propose to conduct research to develop, implement, apply and realistically demonstrate new methods to analyze and predict the stability and performance of a distributed gas turbine engine control (DEC). The approach will be to develop the requirements for a DEC network. Then these requirements will be used to ...

  8. Non-Contact Tabletop Mechanical Testing of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: AF08T004

    A method of inducing non-contact creep deformation was demonstrated in ultra high temperature diborides via electro-magnetic forces. The Phase II effort will focus on refining the Electro-Magnetic Mechanical Apparatus to exhibit better control of test variables and have a higher degree of automation. This novel approach to characterizing Ultra High Temperature Materials will require a standard m ...

  9. Updateable 3D Display Using Large Area Photorefractive Polymer Devices

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF08T001

    Command and control battle maps and mission planning can be greatly enhanced by the representation of the battlefield in 3 dimensions. Showing perspective views, depth and occlusions allows for a better understanding of the situation, and assists in avoiding error when interpreting the terrain. Such maps already exist and are in use, but are based on permanent holographic media that cannot be refr ...
