  3. Enabling Flexible Materials, Devices and Processes for Defense

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT:Emergence and feasibility for flexible body-worn electronics and particularly medical patches requires high performance electronics capability.The problem is that these new technologies must have flexible and conformal physical formats and conventional electronic components are not in any way flexible. In the CLAS Phase I program, a new flexible high-performance manufacturing and material ...

  4. Surface Engineering Technologies for Improved Gear Efficiency

    SBC: Wedeven Associates, Inc.            Topic: A12022

    The frictional losses in a gear mesh can be reduced by including super-finishing in the final manufacturing process. Phase I simulation tests of a hypoid rear axle gear shows a reduction in traction coefficient of 50 percent from an"as ground"surface to a high quality super-finished surface. This level of friction reduction is consistent for both low and high speeds. Phase I shows that costly s ...

  5. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This project address the fabrication of solar blind detectors from the MgZnO material system. Both MBE and MOCVD material growth techniques will be used for deposition of the required material layers. Simulation software we be used to aid in the design of the photodetector structure. Devices will be fabricated from the grown structures and their electrical and optical characteristics determined.

  6. Synthetic Language Interface Toolkit for Chat (SynChat)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF131028

    ABSTRACT: The ability to access high-quality training anywhere and anytime continues to grow in importance due to the complex nature of operational team environments. Training simulations that use virtual agents that respond and behave like live teammates enhance training and help achieve the train as you fight objective without requiring a complete team of human participants. However, the domain ...

  7. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expected to ...

  8. Long-distance 3-D Reconstruction from EO/IR Imagery

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: AF131133

    ABSTRACT: The production of 3D models from aerial imagery has been an active research area for many years. Given sufficient image texture and a variety of divergent camera viewpoints, camera pose and scene structure are fully recoverable. Further, software for fully reconstructing a scene from an image set is now freely available. As the range of viewpoints decreases, however, traditional methods ...

  9. Real Time 3-D Modeling and Immersive Visualization for Enhanced Soldier Situation Awareness

    SBC: Carnegie Robotics LLC            Topic: A12aT003

    We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban canyons, and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that wirelessly supply compressed 3D range data and color imagery to a central Fusion Node. The Fusion Node runs 3D recon ...

  10. Techniques to Suppress Cavitation in Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Next generation liquid rocket systems, envision novel designs for cryogenic turbopumps that exhibit high suction performance with low inlet pressures, operate at high tip speeds to reduce size and weight, and can be throttled over a wide range of low, off-design flow conditions where the inlet flow quality is poor with large backflow. These are extremely demanding flow regimes which ma ...
