  1. Multi-functional nanocomposite materials with high-temperature polymer resin matrice

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: AF03T018

    The overall objective of the proposed Phase II STTR program is to continue optimization of properties already obtained during Phase I which established the feasibility of concept to multi-functionality for BMI polymer matrix composites along with structural capability. Throughout this 2-year effort, it is proposed to seek optimization of the composite properties. The goal is develop and demonstrat ...

  2. Centering Resonance Analysis: A superior data mining algorithm for textual data streams

    SBC: Crawdad Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF03T011

    An increasing amount of information comes in the form of streaming text: news media, email, and even human conversation. Creating insight from streaming text has been challenging though, because current knowledge discovery systems depend on expert analysts to move from simple data to actionable knowledge. In order for such systems to be used outside a small cadre of experts, they must incorporat ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  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. Closed-Loop, Real-Time, Growth-to-Device Semiconductor Modeling

    SBC: NONLINEAR CONTROL STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T003

    Semiconductor amplifiers and lasers are pervasive as critical components in modern day military and commercial technologies. High quality semiconductor wafer growth can now produce heterostructures of very high quality with stoichiometrically correct growth of individual mono-layers. Despite these significant advances in MBE and MOCVD growth technologies, a critical void remains in predicting the ...

  8. Silicon-Based Quantum Well Laser

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: AF05T013

    QuantTera is developing a new class of silicon based-quantum-well near-infrared lasers using group IV semiconductor materials for photonic integrated systems. The uniqueness of this project lies in the development of a strained quantum well active region, which can be tuned to various laser emission wavelengths in the near-IR. Further more this laser will be integratable to existing electronic d ...

  9. Terahertz Backward-Wave Oscillator with Photonic Crystal Waveguide Circuit

    SBC: Terahertz Device Corp.            Topic: AF05T020

    The proposed work addresses an opportunity to develop a portable, tunable backward wave oscillator (BWO) for room temperature generation of terahertz radiation. The approach combines microfabricated photonic crystal waveguide circuits with state-of-the-art electron guns to achieve the efficiency needed for portability. The initial devices will target the 1 to 2 THz range, though the approach can b ...

  10. Integrated Aero-Servo-Thermo-Populso-Elasticity (ASTPE) for Hypersonic Scramjet Vehicle Design/Analysis

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF05T027

    The ZONA Team proposes to establish an Aero-Servo-Propulso-Elastic (ASPE) methodology as a conceptual design/analysis tool for the stability and control of a Single Engine Missile (SEM) model, representing a generic hypersonic wave-rider with airbreathing/scramjet engine. With body flexibility included, the SEM formulation considers all physical components in order to capture the underlying physic ...
