  1. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  2. Closed-Loop, Real-Time, Growth-to-Device Semiconductor Modeling

    SBC: NONLINEAR CONTROL STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T003

    Semiconductor amplifiers and lasers are pervasive as critical components in modern day military and commercial technologies. High quality semiconductor wafer growth can now produce heterostructures of very high quality with stoichiometrically correct growth of individual mono-layers. Despite these significant advances in MBE and MOCVD growth technologies, a critical void remains in predicting the ...

  3. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: Qynergy Corporation            Topic: MDA05T005

    Qynergy Corporation proposes to develop a unique power system for space targets for RADAR calibration and test of advanced discrimination technologies and concepts. There is a need for well-characterized cooperative space targets that can decrease reliance on expensive BMDS integrated flight tests. The space target system would consist of at least 2 objects: a cone of approximately 1-m diameter, ...

  4. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...

  5. An Automated Design Optimization Tool for Electromagnetic Control of Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF04T009

    This STTR Phase II project proposes to develop an automated design optimization tool for electromagnetic flow control based on the gas-kinetic BGK-Burnett scheme and the discrete adjoint optimization method. The adjoint method has already proved successful for dealing with both transonic aerodynamic shape and aero-structural optimization problems and has been extensively tested with the Euler equa ...

  6. Continuous Dynamic Simulation of Nonlinear Aerodynamics/Nonlinear Structure Interaction (NANSI) for Morphing Vehicles

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF06T016

    ZONA Technology proposes in Phase I to develop a general methodology for the assembly of nonlinear reduced order models of the multiple contracting substructures that will likely provide the morphing of future vehicles. In addition it is proposed to extend the existing 2D Gridless-Boundary-Condition Cartesian-Grid (GBCC) to 3D. Finally, these novel developments will be integrated with the existi ...

  7. Nanodielectrics Dielectrics for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: AF06T002

    Future power conditioning, control electronics and directed energy weapons will require significant energy storage for a wide range of power applications. Systems will depend on capacitors to deliver high current and high voltage under repetition. In order to find practical embodiment on mobile platforms, significant advances in compact power sources will be required. In response this need, TP ...

  8. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials which are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoret ...

  10. Advanced Hearing Protection

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Some ground crews for aircrafts are exposed to ambient noise levels up to 150 dB SPL: at these levels, conduction of sound through tissues is significant and may be responsible for hearing loss. Protecting the ear canal with earplugs and earmuffs cannotprevent damage caused by tissue-conducted sound. Our research partners at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, experts in bioacoustics and ...
