  1. Nanophase Technology for Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) Battery Safety

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Many of the safety incidents that occur with lithium-ion batteries are due to the carbon anode currently in use. Incidents can occur that include overcharging in the system, which causes lithium metal to plate out of the cell and passivation at the surfaces of the electrodes in the cell, which can also cause an incident. Applied Colloids proposes the use of its proprietary nanomaterials in a "ro ...

  2. 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 entrains circadian rhythms.  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 speeding recovery from jet-lag, and optimizing cognitive functionality and restorative sleep.  Our ...

  3. Modeling & Simulation for Optimization of Heavy-Fuel Micro Rotary Engines

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIR will develop and test a direct injected, heavy-fueled rotary engine based upon upgrading the existing engine (the AR74-1380) and utilizing analysis tools developed during Phase I. The program will provide the opportunity to continue research through modeling and simulation for optimization of heavy fuel micro rotary engines, and testing to provide model verification, all in sup ...

  4. Failure Initiation Predictors for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: AF08T025

    This proposal is concerned with the development of a novel failure initiation and progressive failure analysis (PFA) modeling method for advanced composite structures. The laminate is modeled as a collection of degrading lamina within the framework of lamination theory and executed using user defined subroutines through a commercial finite element software package. In the proposed approach, design ...

  5. The Design of Defensive Software Systems

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD09IA3

    CML proposes to extend its current work in dynamic kernel monitoring for attack recognition and mitigation. The focus of this proposal is on mitigating the effects of an attack on executing software process by an individual user. The object of interest is the mapping of the activity of a user of a software system onto a model of their normal use of this software. In the construction of a mathe ...

  6. NanoFET- Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster for Micro-Satellites and Defensive Counterspace

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF07T036

    The Nanoparticle Field Extraction Thruster (NanoFET) is being developed as a high thrust-to-power, highly compact, variable specific impulse electric propulsion device especially for micro-satellite applications. NanoFET provides thrust by extracting and charging nanometer to micron-sized conducting particles (e.g., spheres) fed from a dry reservoir and accelerating them electrostatically. This te ...

  7. Characterizing the dynamic behavior of novel energetic materials for space propulsion.

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF08T010

    The objective of this program is to build upon many decades of experience with magnetic flowmeters to develop a next-generation system to measure the burning surface admittance of high-energy-density solid propellants at high frequencies and pressures. Using the results of research on solid propellant rocket motor combustion instability from the past fifty years, one can directly measure the acou ...

  8. New Ceramic Laser Hosts for High Power Lasers

    SBC: NANOCEROX, INC..            Topic: AF083076

    This program seeks to develop ytterbium doped rare earth sesquioxides including yttria, scandia, lutetia, and gadolinia-based oxides as laser gain media for use in high power thin disk lasers.  The increased thermal conductivity, increased absorption cross section at pump wavelengths, small quantum defect in Yb lasing systems, and high performance demonstrated in such media are attractive.  Proc ...

  9. Miniaturized Thermocouple Scanner

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF083258

    Process control and testing applications, including turbine engine testing, can require hundreds of thermocouples for temperature measurement.  Typically, these applications require extensive wiring to connect the thermocouples to remote instrumentation racks up to several hundred feet away; making test system installation time consuming and increasing the likelihood of noise pickup, in the long ...

  10. Radiation Resistant Elastomer Containing POSS, Phenylsiloxane and Ce(IV) Compositions for a Space Solar Cell Adhesive

    SBC: OXAZOGEN, INC.            Topic: AF073095

    This SBIR Phase II program will develop a space solar cell adhesive that will lose less than 3% transmittance from 400 nm to 2000 nm after 15 years in geosynchronous or medium earth orbit. In order to achieve this, transmission, adhesion, and proton-, electron- and UV-resistance must all be improved. The current standard, DC-93500, is vulnerable to proton attack, but Oxazogen’s adhesives are ...
