  1. Novel Honeycomb Hollow Carbon Fiber Composite

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    The current commercial polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based carbon fibers such as IM7 and T300 are limited in modulus at 155 and 130 N/tex respectively. In addition, these fibers are high density (1.75 – 1.93 g/cc) and are known to exhibit buckling behavior under compression stress. If these shortcomings are overcome, a number of new applications within DOD as well as civilian markets can be enabled.  ...

  2. Development, Systems Integration, and Flight Testing of an 80 kW Hybrid Electric Aircraft Propulsion System


    We propose to design an autonomous VTOL cargo aircraft with a gross weight of 800 lbs that will incorporate LaunchPoint’s hybrid electric generator and power management system and phase-controlled motor/drive technology. The resulting aircraft will be capable of vertical takeoff and landing, long range, and quiet flight. In Phase I, Georgia Tech will design the aircraft that will integrate the h ...

  3. Cross-Functional Next Generation Energy Storage Using Liquefied Gas Electrolytes

    SBC: SOUTH 8 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Within Air Force, the safety of the warfighter and maintaining a technological advantage is paramount. Having the highest performing technology will increase odds of a successful and safe mission. Several Air Force missions (ex., eVTOL, SmallSats) are requiring unique power sources operating with higher energy, higher power, wider operation temperature, and higher safety requirements. South 8 ...

  4. Low-Cost Pitch Momentum Bias Control Solution for CubeSats

    SBC: CATENI, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Cateni has identified a market opportunity for the development of a low-cost, low-SWaP attitude control solution for CubeSat-class missions.  Existing 3-axis stabilization solutions for CubeSats perform well but are over-kill for a large segment of missions that have modest requirements associated with nadir or inertial pointing.  A pitch momentum bias (PMB) solution can satisfy such requireme ...

  5. Fast VTOL X-wing Tailsitter


    Fast VTOL without compromising range, efficiency, payload and design simplicity was the goal of DARPA’s VTOL X-Plane project and remains elusive. Faster VTOL aircraft can shorten mission times and increase the potential for successful operations, while re

  6. Quiet Propeller using Carbon Nanotube Thin Film Thermophone

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    The GLSV and MTU team are proposing a novel acoustic method using carbon nanotube (CNT) thin film as a thermophone embedded into the tip and trailing edge of advanced unmanned aerial vehicles to actively reduce propeller noise.  The of CNT thermophones in active noise cancellation has been demonstrated by the team in engine exhaust applications as well as fan applications to date.  The applicati ...

  9. Multiple Hypothesis Tracking of Cyberthreats

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    This Proposal addresses the tracking and forecasting a cyberthreat’s future maneuvers in compromised network. Our approach is as follows: Movement in the Network observed by Intrusion Detection System (IDS) Sensor Data = Discrete States (e.g., IP or Port Addressed per IDMEF alert format) Forecast Threat Track Vector using Multiple Hypothesis Method (MHM) Use Probabilistic Relational Model (PRM) ...

  10. Development of eVTOL Aeroacoustics Software based on Vorcat CFD

    SBC: VORCAT, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Interest in abating noise pollution from future eVTOL vehicles utilized in urban environments is a major motivating factor for this proposed study.  Past strategies for predicting noise about aircraft and rotorcraft tended to be highly empirical leading to limited generalization and accuracy. On the other hand, modern acoustics methodologies can be employed as an effective and comprehensive means ...
