  1. N/A

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

    This subtopic solicited Phase I R&D for an advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) system that would provide fast-scanning high resolution (3 scans/sec at 1cm-1 resolution), low noise, mid-infrared measurements for characterization of spray flames. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) demonstrated FT-IR emission/transmission (E/T) measurements from the NIST spray combustion faci ...

  2. Cryopreservation and Lyophilization of Live Vaccines for Aquaculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase II 2001 Department of Commerce
  3. Cost Effective, Scalable, High Power, Mid-IR Optically (Laser) Pumped Molecular Laser Source

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force and other branches of the armed forces require compact and cost-effective, high power (10s of Watts) sources of mid-infrared radiation at wavelengths within atmospheric transmission bands. Thermal issues in solid-state lasers have so farlimited the performance of these devices at long wavelengths. By contrast gas lasers can provide power scalability, however these devices are typica ...

  4. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

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

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  5. Tether Propulsion System for XS-11 Satellite Retrieval Mission

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A small propellantless electrodynamic tether system can provide a low-mass and low-cost means for lowering the orbit of an existing satellite from high- or mid-LEO altitudes down to low-LEO altitudes so that the satellite can be retrieved for examination,repair, or return to Earth. We propose to develop prototype hardware for an electrodynamic tether drag system to enable a

  6. Advanced Rain and Dust Erosion Resistant Coating Systems

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Rain and dust erosions on aircraft forward facing surfaces such as leading edges, engine inlets, nose radomes, propeller blades, and antennas are serious problems. Due to increasing optical missile threats more low gloss rain erosion coatings are beingused. Current commercial lusterless gray rain erosion coating failed the rain test within 36 minutes when tested at 500mph under 1

  7. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...

  8. KW Class Fiber Lasers

    SBC: PC PHOTONICS            Topic: N/A

    The double-clad multicore fiber laser has proven to be the most efficient, optically-pumped laser. In Phase I, we have demonstated that phase-locking occurs spontaneously among a group of closely packed single mode fiber lasers configured isometrically ina common cladding. This result suggests that, by using our unique power combining technique developed at PC Photonics Corporation, high power o ...

  9. High Temperature Catalyst for Nontoxic Monopropellants

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

    The Phase I work demonstrated that a family of ceramic oxides and oxynitrides can be used either as high temperature catalyst carriers or catalysts for decomposition of HAN fuels. A ceramic processing technique to produce high surface area catalystgranules was also demonstrated. However, no performance and process optimizations were performed. The work initiated in Phase I will be continued to ...
