  1. MEMS Adaptive Optics Enhancement of Quantum Entanglement for Secure Communication through the Atmosphere

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF06T030

    The proposed effort develops the understanding required to assess the utility of using a MEMS device to prepare the required optical fields that not only facilitate quantum entanglement, but also maintain a sufficient level of quantum entanglement for propagation through an aberrating medium such as the atmosphere. In addition a conceptual design of an experiment that is appropriate to further th ...

  3. High-current Field Emitter Arrays for Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    CCR will team with SRI International to develop high current field emission arrays for high power RF source. The Phase I program will utilize a combination of analytical calculation, computer simulation, and experimental verification to study various approaches and determine their effectiveness in achieving the program goals. The technical objective of the Phase I program will be to develop field ...

  4. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: FLUOROCHEM, INC.            Topic: AF06T007

    Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. One major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of hydrochloric acid (HCl) as a combustion product and can cause environmental probl ...

  5. Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06T005

    The proposed effort can provide the framework for a unified modeling & simulation program to substantially improve the capability for understanding, analyzing, and predicting the underlying mechanisms dictating the combustion stability characteristics of liquid-propellant rocket engines. Emphasis will be placed on the effects of atomization, mixing, and distributed combustion of liquid oxygen (LO ...

  6. Hearing Protection for High-Noise Environments

    SBC: MONOPOLE RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T035

    We propose to develop high-fidelity numerical simulation tools to be used in the analysis and assessment of bone conduction of sound in the human head and the desigh of noise protection devices. The proposed approach utilizes boundary and volumetric integral equation methods, and will constitute an extension of our currently developed approach from acoustics to coupled elasticity-theory and acou ...

  7. Low-Cost, Laser Process for Synthesizing Nanolayered Solar Cells

    SBC: NANOTRON            Topic: AF06T026

    A low-cost laser process for synthesizing nanolayers in solar cells is proposed. The net effect of these nanolayers is a wide absorption of the solar spectrum. In this proposed process a laser is used to form many p-n junctions in a thin, lightly doped wafer. Each p-n junction formed will be unique so that each p-n junction converts a different range of the sunlight’s spectrum into current.

  8. Mechanically Adaptive Materials for Morphing Aircraft Skins

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF06T017

    The main goal of the proposed research is to develop a material with a high modulus ratio (Ez / Ex = 105 ) by the end of Phase II. This material is ideally suited for use in morphing aircraft that require large shear strains of the skin, while limiting out-of-plane pillowing at the same time. The major effort during the beginning of the program will be to characterize Shape Memory and Electroactiv ...

  9. Flex-Skins Using Cellular Cores (XSCL)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF06T013

    Morphing aircraft structures have been under focused development over the last five years, primarily under DARPA and Air Force sponsorship. NextGen has been a leader in this effort; prior and on-going work by the NextGen team has identified significant technology barriers which need fundamental understanding as well as innovative solutions. Key among these is the development of skins which have in ...

  10. Development of Amorphous Alloy Coatings and the Application Technology for Aircraft Protection

    SBC: PLASMA TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF06T023

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I objective is twofold. During both depot and field repair operations the coating system is removed using mechanical and chemical stripping methods that result in removal of some of the metallic cladding. The removal of the cladding during paint stripping makes the underlying high strength aluminum alloy more prone to corrosion. Thus, the fi ...
