  1. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Efficient Manufacturing of Low Defect Density SiC Substrates using a Novel Defect Capped Planarization Assisted Growth (DC-PAG) Method

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: AF121183

    ABSTRACT: Silicon carbide based power devices has several advantages because it can be used in very high power, high temperature, high frequency applications, where conventional silicon devices cannot be used. Despite significant advancement in SiC semiconductor technology in the past 3 decades, the presence of device killing defects in the epilayer has impeded the rapid commercialization of SiC- ...

  4. Rapidly Configurable Turbomachines for Air Cycle Machine Emulation


    For aircraft thermal management systems, the air cycle system is powered by an air cycle machine (ACM). The ACM typically consists of a power turbine that utilizes high pressure bleed air, along with a cooling turbine to produce the necessary shaft power for a compressor and starter/generator. To develop a laboratory based ACM, there is a need to develop a system that sufficiently simulates the ...

  5. Magnetooptical isolator for free space and waveguide applications operating at 0.4-5 um

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: AF141199

    The laser sources emitting from short to long infrared wavelengths are used for environmental sensing, metrology and clinical diagnosis, LADAR applications. The second atmospheric window between 3-5 um is crucial where a large number of gases, e.g. methane, nitric oxide, carbon mono-dioxide or formaldehyde, can be detected. Due to the presence of very strong fundamental stretching modes of O-H, C ...

  6. Phase Change Material Thermal Energy Storage (PCM-TES) for ECU Efficiency Improvement


    This proposal presents an hourly thermal load analysis for shelters cooled by 9,000 and 18,000 Btu/hr environmental control units (ECUs). This model suggests a highly variable heat load throughout a standard hot-dry day that can vary by a factor of 20 from the lowest to highest thermal load. This scenario is ideal for load shifting and consumption reduction through thermal energy storage (TES). In ...

  7. Miniature Air Launched Rawinsonde and Dropsonde (MALRD)

    SBC: Wintec, Inc.            Topic: AF112194

    ABSTRACT: The main objective of the MALRD SBIR Phase II research is to develop design alternatives to collect atmospheric data using a novel concept whereby a F-16 fighter aircraft equipped with a ALE-47 countermeasure dispenser system (CMDS) may alternatively serve as an air-launched instrumentation-dispense platform. Specific atmospheric data will be collected by the dropsonde sensors including ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Direct Printing of 3D Structural RF Electronics

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT: Using the advantages of 3D printing, an antenna system wing structure will be printed. The antenna system will be a multi-layer electronic device with a number of antenna elements. The electronics will not be mounted to the wing structure, they will become part of the wing structure. This implies an impact to Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) for UAVs. The payload will become part of th ...

  10. d-FOUR Electronic Toolkit (d4ET)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: AF121020

    ABSTRACT: An opportunity exists to develop methodologies and tools to objectively assess the overall training effectiveness of a simulation and pinpoint specific system characteristics such as fidelity and training strategy support which contribute to the training effectiveness or lack thereof. To address this, Design Interactive (DI) proposes to develop the d-FOUR Electronic Toolkit (d4ET), a T ...
