  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. Sensitive and Shape-Specific Molecular Identification

    SBC: RYON TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A11aT017

    The ability to rapidly detect, identify and monitor chemical agents remains a challenge of significant importance to the Armed Forces. Existing chemical sensing techniques have shortcomings that inhibit widespread implementation. To address this situation, Ryon Technologies is developing a portable instrument that is based on Rydberg Fingerprint Spectroscopy (RFS) in combination with mass spectrom ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Attack Amelioration via Layered Temporal Virtualizaton ("Primer")

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF141038

    ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of a computing appliance which uses Temporal Virtualization to help ameliorate the effects of malicious software activity. Temporal Virtualization involves the manipulation of virtual time in Type-2 (software) virtual clients in a way that frustrates an adversary"s attempts to corrupt or break out of virtualization. An attack model is assume ...

  8. A Pintle-Free Divert and Attitude Control System

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF141137

    ABSTRACT: Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing to develop a Divert and Attitude Control System (DACS) for tactical air superiority missiles, using proprietary Electric Solid Propellants (ESPs). Unlike conventional propellants, ESPs can be ignited with electric power applied through inert electrodes within the propellant grain itself, while also maintaining a higher level of insensitivity. ...

  9. Electrically Responsive Energetics for Variable Yield Weapons

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF141145

    ABSTRACT: Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing to develop an Electrically Variable Explosive (EVE) which, through direct electrical control, will provide on-demand sensitization and throttling for enhanced energy output in explosive fills. EVEs are based upon DSSP"s Electric Solid Propellant (ESP) Technology which has demonstrated modified burning rates with electrical input, on/off operat ...

  10. Modular, Low Cost Fixture for Evaluating OML Treatments for Stress-Strain Loading During Environmental Conditioning

    SBC: Material and Process Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF141167

    ABSTRACT: Material and Process Solutions propose to develop a modular stress-strain fixture for gap fillers and OML coating treatments in Phase I of this SBIR program. This fixture will combine the best attributes of various weapon systems custom gap assembly systems to one or two gap geometry standards. The modular design of the fixture(s) will be combined with an electromagnetic degradation ef ...
