  2. Polymer-ceramic Nanocomposites for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF06T002

    We propose to develop new polymer-ceramic nanoparticle composites for high power capacitors. The new approach combines the leading-edge nanomaterials development and manufacturing at Agiltron will transfer the high dielectric constant fillers to our new nanodielctrics with extremely improved breakdown strength and extensively lowered dielectric loss. We expect to fully overcome the problems of cu ...

  3. ADAPT: Allocation of Dynamic Attention across People & Teams

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T003

    Effective task management is a critical component of mission success. As warfighters are given more information to monitor, however, their ability to detect and attend to critical information and tasks is stressed. An automatic task manager is needed to help ensure that responses to events occur in a timely manner. The foundation of such a tool is an accurate model of human dynamic attention. Many ...

  4. CIFTS:Communications and Information Flow Tracking System

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T027

    Electronic text chat has become a primary medium of communication throughout the military over the past fifteen years. In organizations such as the Air and Space Operations Center’s Dynamic Targeting Cell (DTC), it is used extensively among team members as they collaboratively process information about time sensitive targets for prosecution. To assure the highest degree of performance, operators ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Two-Dimensional Micro-Colloid Thruster Fabrication

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF04T005

    The specific opportunity to be addressed in this research is the exploitation of new scientific understanding about electrospray phenomena and novel micro-fabrication technology for use in new space missions that call for precise, flexible and efficient propulsion. Information gained during the course of this program should enable the production of electrosprays consisting of droplets or ions whi ...

  7. Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Rapid Maneuvering of Space Assets

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF06T001

    Busek Co. Inc. and Stanford University propose to jointly develop and test a high power plasma propulsion concept called the Coaxial High EnerGy (CHENG) thruster. This high efficiency (> 85%) pulsed system will be capable of average thrust levels commensurate to chemical propulsion (10^4 N/m^2), but with an Isp comparable to electrostatic propulsion (4000-50,000 s). Both thrust and Isp will be va ...

  8. A High Current Microfabricated Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array with Ballasting

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    High current density carbon nanotube-based field emission arrays with uniform emission will be developed under this program. Working in conjunction with MIT, microfabrication techniques will be used to produce high density arrays of CNT emitters on substrates which incorporate feedback to ensure uniformity of emission between emitters. The feedback techniques employed will minimize thermal effec ...

  9. Novel, High Power, W-band, Meander Line TWT

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T022

    This proposal contains innovative, traveling-wave tube (TWT) designs compatible with three-dimensional (3D) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques for millimeter-wave applications. The development will focus on novel planar interaction circuits; long life, high current density electron guns; and compact magnet configurations. The ultimate goal will be high power, efficient, ...

  10. 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 ...
