  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. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF04T008

    Colorado Engineering, Inc., a small woman owned business, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are teaming to extend a steganogrpahic architecture for an extensible, distributed application that can be utilized to detect steganographic content in media files, alert the user, and either mitigate (destroy) the content if possible or quarantine the files as appropriate. The initial arc ...

  3. TEMBO® Foam for Morphing Wing Applications


    In recent years there has been significant interest in developing morphing air vehicles that would be able to fly efficiently over a wide range of flight regimes to meet new mission profiles. Though morphing-wing concepts have been around for many years, it has been determined that conventional designs such as swing wings are not adequate for providing the desired improvements. Many of the new m ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. Soluble Catalysts to Improve Jet Fuel Combustion and Fuel Heat Sink Capacity

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T019

    Rocket Based Combined Cycle (RBCC) propulsion systems likely will be used to launch next-generation space vehicles. However, in the scramjet portion of the cycle, it is difficult to maintain stable combustion because of the high air velocity and short combustor residence times. In addition, the overall heat load in a scramjet engine exceeds the cooling capacity that can be provided from the sens ...

  7. Kinetic Mechanisms for Reacting Flow CFD

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: OSD05T002

    Development of scramjet engines is hindered by the lack of fast and accurate turbulent reacting flow CFD tools. In Phase I of this STTR project, Reaction Systems, LLC investigated a fundamentally new approach to reducing the computational burden of detailed chemistry that holds great promise in lowering this computational burden. This new approach significantly reduces the number of chemical spe ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Nanocatalysts for Hydrocarbon-Fueled Rocket Based Combined Cycle (RBCC) Engines

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF06T019

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project involves the development of homogeneous catalysts for cracking of hydrocarbon fuel. Future concept space vehicles employ regeneratively cooled engines which rely on the fuel to absorb engine heat to ensure survival of the engine structure at a high temperature. Using the fuel to absorb heat and burning the hot fuel efficiently keeps the heat ...
