  1. Sorbent-Polymer Passive Re-chargeable Thermal Battery for Cold Climate Operations

    SBC: THERMOPYLON LLC            Topic: A19BT014

    Cost effective and compact thermal energy storage systems that enable passive, non-powered, repeatable storage and release of heat could offer significant tactical and practical advantages for soldiers’ mission execution and success in a deployed setting of cold climates. Sorbent systems can store heat indefinitely, however, current sorbent-based technologies require storage tanks and complex co ...

  2. Metasurface-Enhanced Absorption in a Type II Superlattice Detector

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A19BT009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with the University of Texas, Austin (UT), propose to develop a metasurface-enhanced type-II superlattice (T2SL) imaging detector that achieves significant absorption enhancement for midwave infrared wavelengths (MWIR, 3–5 μm) using an absorbing layer with average thickness that is sub-micron. MWIR imaging is critical need for unmanned aircrafts an ...

  3. Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) as a Method to produce High Aspect Ratio Conductive Flakes for Advanced Bispectral or Infrared (IR) Obscuration

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: A19BT011

    This Phase I STTR proposal addresses the development of a low cost electrically conductive obscurant, with functionality in the visible and IR spectra. A commercial low-cost state of the art PVD process that is currently used to manufacture aluminum nanoflake will be adopted to produce copper nanoflakes with surface interference layers designed to produce conductive flakes that have a black appear ...

  4. High Purity H2 from Sunlight via a Unique Combination of Novel Photodiodes and Membranes

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: A19BT015

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) together with University of Michigan (UMich) proposes a system to use solar energy to convert water to ultra-high purity compressed hydrogen suitable for PEM fuel cells. We will combine UMich’s high efficiency photocatalytic water splitting approach with PCI’s integrated hydrogen separator/compressor. The proposed effort will confirm the avoidance of external e ...

  5. Low Temperature Deposition of Magnetic Materials on Topological Materials

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: A19BT007

    n conjunction with ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic materials the topological insulators are elements of future magnetic random access memory (MRAM) and GHz-to-THz frequency sources (spin-torque nano-oscillators, STNO). One of the major challenges in applying topological insulators (TIs) in magnetic devices is the mutual incompatible deposition processes. TIs are usually destroyed by the high t ...

  6. Freeform Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: Optowares Incorporated            Topic: A19BT003

    In this program Optowares Inc., in collaboration with Professor Jay H. Park at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell (UML), proposes to develop a novel technique for uniform dispersion and alignment of short fiber reinforcement in highly loaded composite materials. The new approach combines the cutting-edge polymer composite synthesis and development methods at Optowares with the extensive exp ...

  7. Low Temperature Atomic Layer Deposition of Manganese Telluride on Topological Insulator

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A19BT007

    Planar heterojunction comprised of topological insulator and magnetic insulator layers provide a unique opportunity to develop highly energy efficient electronics. The key challenge for the heterojunction is to fabricate a clean and abrupt interface between the two layers for efficient magnetic coupling. The growth of the magnetic materials should ideally be a low-temperature process in order to p ...

  8. Automating U-spline fluid-structure model development for mobility applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: A19BT006

    Dr. Thomas J.R. Hughes, senior advisor at Coreform, first introduced isogeometric analysis (IGA) in 2005. In the years since, it has been shown that smooth splines, the basic building blocks of IGA, allow for the use of relatively coarse meshes for accurate analysis in both finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Research results also show that IGA delivers improved a ...

  9. Hydrogen Production Platform from Sunlight and Water

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A19BT015

    Triton Systems Inc will build a complete system for the portable generation of 99.999% pure hydrogen from water including greywater or wastewater. The catalysts on which the technology is based are unique in having demonstrated stable and efficient hydrogen production in non-corrosive, near-neutral water and natural water sources such as seawater. The platform will be scalable to a production rate ...

  10. Resilient Execution of Localized Algorithms at the Tactical Edge (RELATE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A19CT004

    Warfighters engaged in tactical operations are increasingly reliant on time-sensitive sensor information collected from Internet of Battlefield Things (IoBT) devices at the tactical edge to achieve mission goals. If the information flow is disrupted or the information is not processed correctly, then mission success can be severely impacted. A tactical edge network poses unique challenges for info ...
