  1. Optical Refrigeration for Dramatically Improved Cryogenic Technology

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: The demonstration of 155 Kelvin refrigeration by optical cooling performed by the co-PIs of this proposal is a first step toward revolutionizing Air Force cryogenic systems. The stated focus of this STTR solicitation is"developing the concepts of a solid-state optical cryocooler that can approach 100 K with a cooling power exceeding 200 mW."To achieve this performance, a crucial propose ...

  2. Nonintrusive Diagnostics for Off-Body Measurements in Flight Experiments

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT07

    ABSTRACT: Developing the quick strike capability of the Air Force requires hypersonic testing using advanced instrumentation to determine key aerodynamic parameters. A novel method for stand-off measurement of gas velocity is proposed. The method should operate over a wide dynamic range, from still air to hypersonic velocities. The method is non-contacting, precise, and spatially-resolved. It doe ...

  3. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: The United States Air Force and the Department of Defense are investigating synthesis, scale-up and production of novel energetic materials including high energy density compounds and fuels. Five-membered heterocyclic rings containing nitro groups have demonstrated great potential as energetic materials. Synthetic and engineering challenges are impeding scientists from safely producing ...

  4. VLSI CMOS-memristor Building-block for Future Autonomous Air Platforms

    SBC: NUGENT, MICHAEL ALEXANDER            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: We propose a revolutionary method for constructing autonomous self-organizing circuits via memristive and CMOS technologies for use in autonomous flying vehicles. Our method utilizes a simple but powerful plasticity rule that can be mapped to the physics of memristive devices acting as synaptic elements whiten neuromorphic circuits. Through self-configuration of router and logic struc ...

  5. Synthetic Scenery for Tracking System Evaluation

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF10BT33

    ABSTRACT: Recent Airborne Tactical Laser (ATL) field testing demonstrated that high-energy laser (HEL)-induced obscurants could break the tracking systems lock on the aimpoint, negating the HEL attack. When an HEL engages a target surface, particles may be emitted from the surface that obscure the target, change the optical signature, and attenuate the beam on target due to scatter and absorptio ...

  6. Synthetic Scenery for Tracking System Evaluation

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF10BT33

    ABSTRACT: MZA Associates Corporation, partnered with the University of Dayton (UD) propose to develop a dynamic scene generation capability within WaveTrain. We propose authoring a scene renderer using proven Computer Graphics Imagery (CGI) techniques to produce target maps that WaveTrain will use to represent an array of sources. The code library will be compiled in such a way that is will be ...

  7. 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.

  8. 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, ...

  9. 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. Nanodielectrics Dielectrics for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: TPL, 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 ...
