  1. Fabrication of 3D Photonic Crystals in the RF Range for Man-Portable Antenna Applications

    SBC: Antennovation            Topic: A05T017

    Antennovation and the Pennsylvania State University propose to develop novel new electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) materials in conjunction with miniaturized broadband antennas for use in man-portable antenna applications. The proposed antenna/EBG system will be designed to be low-profile, compact, and light-weight for helmet-mounted antennas and/or other body-worn applications. The frequency range o ...

  2. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  3. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    The main objective of this program is to develop a new class of high performance hard magnetic materials that will maintain an energy product of 30 MGOe or greater at temperatures up to 450 °C. These novel magnetic materials are greatly needed for the "more electric" airplanes and space vehicle applications where a high operating temperature is a strict requirement. The approaches to be used for ...

  4. A Novel Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition process for producing RMI/EFI coatings

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05T028

    Though low pressure plasmas have found wide applications in materials processing and play a key role in manufacturing semiconductor devices, operating the plasma at reduced pressure has several drawbacks. Vacuum systems are expensive and require maintenance. Load locks and robotic assemblies must be used to shuttle materials in and out of vacuum and essentially it is a batch process. Also the size ...

  5. Calculation and Testing of Alternating Current (AC) Losses in Coated Conductors and the Development of Practical Conductors and Coils for Operational

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: AF03T023

    The use of coated HT superconductors in the ac windings of electrical machines offers the possibility of much lighter electrical devices. To use these conductors at proposed high frequencies, present “as-manufactured” conductor geometries must be modified to reduce their ac loss by using fine filaments and other topologies). Equally important are more global winding losses requiring suitable ...

  6. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Boron has significant potential as a high energy density ingredient in ramjet propellants and fuels. This is due to boron's high heat of combustion and low atomic weight. For a ramjet ducted rocket, theoretical volume specific impulses of 1600- 1800 sec g cm-3 have been reported for a fuel rich boron solid propellant, 45 % greater than the best hydrocarbon composition. Boron's high ignition tem ...

  7. Hybrid Textile-Based Multi-Layered Flexible System for Penetration Resistance (MSC P5016)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: A05T004

    The currently fielded Interceptor Body Armor System employs an Outer Tactical Vest (OTV) made of lightweight fabric material with Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPIs) for protection against fragmentation, small arms and rifle-fired threats. The SAPI plates are rigid and brittle, limiting their protection coverage area to the torso. In addition, the plates are susceptible to environmental degrada ...

  8. Chip-to-Chip Optical Interconnects Using Integrated Photonic Crystal Lightwave Circuits

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF03T021

    The goal of this Phase II STTR program is to develop photonic crystal (PC) technologies which can enable photonic lightwave circuits (PLC¡¦s) that are monolithically integrable with optoelectronic devices and wafers, thereby providing a new technology platform for the heterogeneous integration of photonic and optoelectronic functions. This can significantly increase the density of lightwave circ ...

  9. Fast Laser Pulse Shaping for Molecular Control and CB Detection

    SBC: Proteus Optics Llc            Topic: A04T008

    We propose the development of a commercial prototype laser pulse shaping system for the defense, industrial and academic communities for advanced laser processing applications. The system will be used for closed-loop control of molecular reactions and dynamics by coherent electromagnetic fields. During Phase I we built and tested a breadboard system and due to its simplified optical system showed ...

  10. High Power IMPATT-Mode AlGaN/GaN HFETs for mm-Wave Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: A05T008

    A new Aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN) based heterojunction field-effect transistor (HFET) structure is proposed that utilizes avalanche impact ionization for very high frequency operation (>100 GHz). The main goal of this program is to demonstrate the potential of these devices as a replacement for vacuum tubes in mm-wave applications including radars and communications transmitters. In the Pha ...
