  2. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  4. 40 Percent Air Mass Zero Efficiency Solar Cells for Space Applications

    SBC: SEMPRIUS INC.            Topic: AF151095

    ABSTRACT:We propose an ultra-low profile hybrid CPV concept that combines multi-junction (MJ) CPV cells capable of 40% efficiency at 1 sun with a low-cost single-junction PV backplane in a design that is lightweight, based on concentration ratios >100X and has a panel thickness 500 W/kg and a wide acceptance angle of >4.0. The low-profile design, combined with world record performance, will yield ...

  5. 6-Synch

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF071349

    This proposed SBIR effort will develop 6-Synch, a tool for monitoring NCW assets, based on agents that are “Network Health” aware, and act appropriately given the “Health” of their links. 6-Synch utilizes routing protocol derived network connectivity information for the placement of the agents. Intelligent agents will be dynamically and optimally placed in the network based on the curren ...

  6. A 94 GHz Aperture Coupled Circularly Polarized Transceiver Antenna

    SBC: TLC Precision Wafer Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advance millimeter wave (MMW) transceivers are needed to further enhance the U.S. military current and future communication, detection and guidance systems. TLC will develop and demonstrate a unique low-cost, wire-bond-free, 70-94 GHz W-band antennaintegrated MMIC transceiver that also meet commercial performance, low price, and simplicity requirements. This transceiver will also provide excelle ...

  7. A 94 GHz Aperture Coupled Circularly Polarized Transceiver Antenna

    SBC: TLC Precision Wafer Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Current spaceborne communication systems and missile seeker systems require parallel advances in the W-band (94 GHz) multifunction phase array antenna systems. Relatively large aperture areas of the existing antenna systems radiate heat rapidly into spacefrom the RF components. Also, the existing low-phase noise, tunable local oscillators (LO) used for the RF front-ends of the spaceborne communic ...

  8. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    We address a key challenge in many military and commercial systems: the tracking of materials and/or documents, and the certification of their origin(watermarking). We use libraries of taggants composed of synthetic DNA, where: (i) the number of distinct taggants are scalable to the millions and more, (ii) the taggants are not easily detectable without certain secret information, but (iii) with t ...

  9. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    Taggants are small objects used to label things or people that need to be traced. Synthetic DNA Taggants are ideal for this, since very small amounts can be detected if the sequence is known, and can be disguised by natural DNA in the environment. Known protocols for DNA amplification (e.g. PCR) allow for very sensitive DNA detection, but suffer from disadvantages: the apparatus is not very portab ...

  10. A Fast and Accurate System to Characterize Particle Emission from Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: MSP CORPORATION            Topic: AF06301

    Routine Air Force operations generate particulate emissions at bases around the country. Many bases are located in air quality non-attainment zones, and at these locations all air emissions are coming under increasing scrutiny. The current method to test particle mass emission from aircraft turbine engines (EPA Method 5) is not ideal, because it requires long run times and concomitant high jet f ...
