  1. Protective conformal coatings for spacecraft polymers and paints

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF07T011

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to further develop its non-line of sight, energetic coating system to deposit protective thin film coatings for polymers in the low earth orbit. Numerous satellites costing $25M to $1B reside in LEO and the lifetime time of the polymers used in these assets is limited by atomic oxygen (AO) erosion, UV/VUV damage and the negative effects of static charging. ...

  2. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  3. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...

  4. Short-Wavelength Countermeasure for Circadian Desynchrony

    SBC: AVAcore Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF07T015

    Exposure to light at critical phases of the circadian cycle is the main stimulus that phase shifts and entrains circadian rhythms. Whereas previous work has concluded that exposure of humans to bright light for an hour or more at the right phase of the circadian cycle produces significant phase shifts of circadian rhythms, and can speed recovery from jet-lag thus facilitating restorative sleep. ...

  5. Meander Line Traveling wave tube THz Amplifier

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05T020

    We propose to develop an innovative, traveling-wave tube amplifier (TWTA) compatible with three-dimensional (3D) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques for submillimeter-wave applications. The development will focus on a novel, interaction circuit; long life, high current density electron guns; compact power supplies; and compact magnet configurations providing compact, lig ...

  6. High Current Density Scandate Cathodes For Future Vacuum Electronics Applications

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF07T030

    All RF vacuum electron sources require a high quality electron beam for efficient operation. Research on improved cathodes is constantly exploring new alternatives to produce high current density, uniform electron beams with long life. Typical thermionic cathodes consists of a tungsten matrix impregnated with a mixture of barium calcium aluminates that reduces the work function surface. Recent tes ...

  7. Stability Models for Augmentor Design Tools and Technology Assessment

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06T033

    We are proposing a joint experimental/modeling and computational study to develop stability models for CFD codes to design advanced augmentors. Experiments will be conducted at the Research Institution to address various issues related to augmentor stability under vitiated conditions. A stream of vitiated air will be established within an existing vertical wind tunnel. Fuel jets in crossflow and b ...

  8. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  9. High efficiency deep green light emitting diode

    SBC: CRYSTAL PLEX            Topic: A07T018

    Crystalplex has developed novel semiconductor nanocrystal technology that can be a platform solution to meet the Army's desire for a light emitting diode (LED) with enhanced output in the deep green region using nanoparticles. This innovation produces an efficient deep green (555-585 nm) nanoparticle emitter capable of sustaining the Army's stated goal of 120 lumens per watt of input power. Crys ...

  10. Portable Fully-Automated Soil Property Measurement Probe

    SBC: CSA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: A07T015

    The CSA-UCDavis team proposes to develop a soil measurement device to allow for rapid and accurate measurement of soil parameters in order to rapidly and accurately characterize the terrain. The device will be man-portable but also allow for mounting to a small robotic vehicle. Parameters that will be measured include but are not limited to cone index, soil friction index, as well as soil shear ...
