  1. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF083112

    ABSTRACT:A joint experimental and computational project using a carefully designed, flexible test article is proposed to assess the velocity-coupled combustion response of a representative liquid rocket injector element to transverse acoustic disturbances. In the proposed Phase II, the response of an injector flowfield at supercritical pressure conditions will be simulated, measured, and reduced i ...

  2. Flame-Assisted Flash Sintering for Ceramic-Coated Heat Exchangers

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF121181

    ABSTRACT:In this Phase II effort, nGimat will utilize its newly-developed FAFS technique to sinter ceramic films to metal substrates.The FAFS method was developed and proved feasible through a Phase I SBIR grant and we will expand our understanding of the technique through thorough R&D in Phase II.Sintered samples will undergo thorough surface and mechanical analysis to validate the FAFS process.S ...

  3. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High"dither"conditions, where the actuator undergoes a constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator ballscr ...

  4. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: IMAGINESTICS, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: A challenge which continues to present a barrier to the utilization of AM and wide spread adoption is knowing when to use the technology. This is particularly problematic in aerospace and in MRO operations because the technology is still emerging, and knowledgeable, experienced practitioners remain in short supply and will likely remain so until the next generation of technicians and en ...

  5. Cryogenic-Vacuum Compatible Infrared Scene Projection System (CVC IRSP) Based on the Digital Micromirror Device

    SBC: OPTICAL SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF083255

    ABSTRACT: This document presents Optical Sciences Corporation's SBIR technology transition proposal to complete development of an advanced Cryogenic-Vacuum Compatible Infrared Scene Projector (CVC IRSP) for Wide Field-of-View (WFOV) space sensor testing and to integrate the CVC IRSP into a government owned space simulation chamber. The CVC IRSP will be capable of projecting complex scenes w ...

  6. Ultra-Scalable Nonvolatile Graphene Memory

    SBC: Harper Laboratories            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT:Nonvolatile memory (NVM) technologies are a critical component of modern satellites.These NVM chipsets perform tasks ranging from storing mission-critical boot code to large multi-gigabyte mission data recorders.This requirement for high-density NVM has shifted focus on to commercial CMOS FLASH.FLASH technologies are capable of high-density devices, compared to resistive or phase-change t ...

  7. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  8. Modular Motor Drive with Programming and Configuration Tools for the Development of Small Aircraft Electric Power and Propulsion Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF151070

    ABSTRACT:Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) developers have limited marketplace options for motor speed controllers. The largest commercial controllers are generally limited to below 12 kW and battery voltages of less than 50 V, Although these are well suited to 800 Class helicopters and Giant scale fixed-wing aircraft, they are not powerful enough for larger UAV development. A few high-power options exis ...

  9. Radiation Hardened Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF151089

    ABSTRACT:There is a need for a moderate resolution, high speed, radiation hardened (RH) Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) to support new satellite developments. Scientic proposes to develop a high speed, radiation-hardened DAC to be produced on-shore in a trusted semiconductor foundry to meet the data conversion needs of the US Air Force (AF) and other military and aerospace system developers. To ...

  10. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...
