    SBC: Polarix Corporation            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Polarix is developing a motor/generator/inverter technology, which combines major increase in power density with increased, reliability, efficiency and manufacturability. The Polarix Arrayed Controlled Turnless Structures (ACTS) motor will exhibit up to an order of magnitude greater power density than present technology.  It relies on the integration of arrays of low voltage independently control ...

  3. A CAD-Based Software Tool for Design and Analysis of Materials under Ballistic Impact

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: A07T014

    In battlefield environments, ballistic impact may result in the failure of military structures and materials, including armor. To improve the reliability and safety of military structures and materials, it is important to study material failure under ballistic impact in the design stage. There are two main failure phenomena related to the material response due to ballistic impact. One is adiaba ...

  4. Accelerated Burn-In Process for High Power Quantum Cascade Lasers to Reduce Total Cost of Ownership

    SBC: Adtech Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N20BT029

    Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) are one of the most versatile sources of radiation in the mid-infrared range and have found applications in a variety of fields. Despite their widespread adoption, one of the main hurdles holding QCLs back from large volume manufacturing is the large cost of ownership. While QCLs, like most semiconductor devices based on III-V compounds, can leverage the economies of ...

  5. Accurate Space Object Prediction via Improved Atmospheric Drag Model

    SBC: Kayhan Space Corp            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Atmospheric drag is the biggest source of error and the least predictable perturbing force acting on spacecraft and space debris objects in orbit around Earth. The U.S. Air Force uses the High accuracy satellite drag model (HASDM) to predict the atmospheric drag effects. Kayhan Space in collaboration with the University of Colorado Boulder seeks to improve the HASDM by decoupling and simultaneousl ...

  6. Achieving High L/D in a VTOL Aircraft


    Most VTOL aircraft in development today focus on shorter range and smaller payloads, insufficient or too expensive for regional travel. To meet this need, Craft is developing a novel VTOL aircraft focused on regional transport and wide accessibility. The

  7. A Combinatorial Approach to Obtain Ultra-High CNT Loading in Multifunctional Polymer Matrix Nanocomposites

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N08T017

    The objective of this Navy STTR program is to develop and demonstrate methodologies for ultrahigh loading of carbon nanotubes in thermosetting resins and engineering thermoplastics. A combinatorial approach will be pursued to achieve the STTR goal: partially involving the use of novel molecularly tailored copolymer dispersants, which may have the most impact on thermosetting resin systems, and th ...

  8. A Compact Membrane Reactor Methanol Reformer

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T011

    Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cells require a relatively pure, concentrated hydrogen stream, with very low levels of sulfur and carbon monoxide (CO) in order to prevent poisoning of the fuel cell anode catalyst. In addition, removing inerts and impurities (such as CO2) from the hydrogen feed to the fuel cell increases a fuel cell's electrical conversion efficiency. TDA Research, Inc. ...

  9. A Compact Solid Acid Electrolyte Fuel Cell Generator

    SBC: SUPERPROTONIC, INC.            Topic: A08T010

    This project addresses the Army's needs for a compact power source. The system design is based on state-of-the-art high CO tolerant solid acid fuel cells (SAFCs) operating at 250 degrees C and a thermally matched methanol reformer creating a 20 Wnet lightweight, rugged, efficient unit capable of running for 72 hours with an energy density of about 1 kWh/kg.

  10. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...
