  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. 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, ...

  3. 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 ...

  6. Two-Dimensional Micro-Colloid Thruster Fabrication

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: AF04T005

    In colloidal propulsion, there have been significant improvements in 1-D micro-fabricated arrays operating in the single Taylor cone per emitter regime. Unfortunately, this arrangement necessitates the construction of very large colloidal thrusters inefficiently utilizing a limited amount of area to produce suitable thrust. To maximize the density of individual colloidal emitters per unit area, ...

  7. Shear Stress Sensor Using Shape Memory Films

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: AF03T010

    There is a need for a low profile, simple, accurate, localized, responsive sensor to measure shear stress in fluid flow. The unusual properties of shape memory alloys, and of Ni2MnGa in particular, suggest they could be sensing elements for shear. In recent years, single crystal films of Ni2MnGa have been grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). Once released from their substrate, these films hav ...

  8. High Temperature Sm(Co,Fe,Cu,Zr)z/Fe-Co Nanocomposite Permanent Magnets with High Energy Density

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: AF05T024

    Air Force seeks innovative permanent magnets for high temperature application in air and space vehicles. This requires the use of novel permanent magnets with high coercivity and saturation magnetization up to 450oC with an energy product of 30 MGOe. Inframat Corporation proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating an exchange-spring coupled Sm(Co,Fe,Cu,Zr)z/Co-Fe nanocomposite permanen ...
