  1. High-Energy Laser Coatings for Large, Lightweight, and Compliant Deployable Space Optics

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to use its Filtered Cathodic Arc Plasma Deposition (FCAPD) process to apply reflective high-energy laser coatings to complaint polyamide substrates for space-based mirrors. FCAPD coatings have better adhesionand are denser and more stable than coatings deposited using other methods, such as, sputtering or evaporation. In addition, the internal stress o ...

  2. Reconfigurable Processors for Software Protection

    SBC: ACCORD SOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    The CipherProcessor architecture demonstrates reconfigurable opcodes unique to a specific processor or dynamically to a parallel environment and defined uniquely at compile time. Starting from a base of reconfigurable knowledge, Accord Solutions Inc willdevelop a reference design and demonstrate its viability. It incorporates an effective mechanism for delivery of compiled unique opcode binaries f ...

  3. Structural Health and Usage monitoring system for Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) structures


    The objective of this proposed project is to develop innovative structural health monitoring (SHM) technologies for application to composite structures for unmanned air vehicle (UAV) platforms. Composites can incur invisible damage from impacts, loadingabrasion, operator abuse, or neglect that if unchecked may lead to lower structural reliability, higher life-cycle costs, and loss in operational c ...

  4. Non-Contact, 3-D Measurement for Aircraft Surfaces

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A shape capture system for field and industrial capture of surface contours and discontinuous shapes is proposed. The system will provide accuracy of 0.01 inch or better at over 1 million points distributed over a region 100 inches across from three ormore images obtained with a high resolution handheld digital camera. A tripod or bench mounted projector projects a pattern onto the surface from w ...

  5. Traveler-ARM Isolation System for Large Flexible Space Structures

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase 2 program will accelerate the development and commercialization of the Traveler-ARM isolation system conceptualized during the Phase 1 program. The Phase 1 program has established the technical feasibility and requirements compliance ofthe Traveler-ARM isolation system. The primary objective of the proposed Phase 2 program is to further develop and validate the Traveler-ARM is ...

  6. Advanced DC Power Distribution Module--Convert DC to Aircraft Quality Power

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Flightline Ground Support Equipment (GSE) must meet ever increasing technical requirements while reducing emissions. Pressure is on to consolidate many sizes into fewer standard models and to convert to electric or hybrid-electric operation. As part ofthis movement, the need has arisen for a DC power distribution module to convert vehicle battery pack power to many types of flightline AC power. Th ...

  7. Low-Noise, Wide-Bandwidth, Large-Area APDs for Free-Space Optical Links

    SBC: Agility Communications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For future satellite to ground optical links, large-area high-performance photodetectors are a key component. The APD is a natural choice, owing to its inherent sensitivity advantage compared to photodetectors that do not provide internal gain. Theoutput of Phase I of this program is an APD design that achieves 3 GHz of bandwidth, a quantum efficiency greater than 50%, and noise performance comp ...

  8. Composite Bearing Cage for Advanced Turbine Engine Applications

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The next-generation gas turbine engines will operate at higher speeds; higher pressure-ratio and higher cycle temperature to achieve increased power and efficiency. Advanced bearings capable of operating above 3.0 MDN are required.Carbon-Carbon (C-C) bearing cages were developed jointly by AFRL/PRTM and Mr. Wei Shih of Allcomp to address requirements of an advanced supersonic missile engine. The i ...

  9. Advanced Carbon-Based Fan Duct Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High conductivity (Hi-K) Carbon foam and Carbon-Carbon (C-C) composites are light-weigh and offers the highest specific thermal conductivity (conductivity/ density) among various engineering materials. Carbon foam and C-C have been identified as ideal corematerials for medium to high temperature heat exchangers. However, Hi-K carbon foam is relatively brittle and exhibit low strength. In this prop ...

  10. GPS Civil Signal Validation Techniques

    SBC: ALLEN OSBORNE ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The performance of a new GPS receiver design, acquiring and tracking the L5 satellite transmissions, will be analyzed to evaluate suitability for fabrication and performance testing in later phases of the program. Included in this phase will be the designof the software which will operate the receiver and produce the navigation outputs. When new GPS satellites broadcasting the L5 signal are ava ...
