  1. A High Efficiency SACI 1 kW Generator System with Integrated Waste Energy Recovery

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    We propose a novel high efficiency (≈40%) generator system capable of providing 1 kWe along with hot water on-demand. The integration of two novel concepts: 1) an internal combustion engine (ICE) operating on Spark-Assisted Compression Ignition (SACI) combustion of natural gas (NG), and 2) a bottoming Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) with waste energy recovery (WER) from ICE exhaust enables the overa ...

  4. All Solid-State Rechargeable Batteries for Throttleable Divert and Attitude Control Systems (TDACS)

    SBC: Soild Power, Inc.            Topic: MDA13005

    A key design feature affecting the performance and reliability of TDACS is the on-board energy storage system. Current systems utilize thermal batteries to meet their on-board energy storage needs. However, current thermal batteries have several notable limitations that can negatively impact mission assurance. Most notable are their relatively low energy density, their manufacturing complexity, ...

  5. Monitoring Active Region Development of the Far-Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841W

    Solar active regions have a major impact on space weather. Knowledge of active regions in the Sun’s far hemisphere can improve forecasts of impending solar storms and future UV irradiance variations that negatively impact spacecraft, communications, and navigation facilities, thus making knowledge of active region locations and strengths of great benefit to society. We will use algorithms based ...

  6. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 841D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  7. Thermal Ground Planes for High Power Solid-State Lasers

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA13022

    A key challenge toward future directed energy systems is the development of power and thermal management technologies needed to support the laser systems, particularly pump diodes.I2C Solutions and the University of Colorado have developed a Thermal Ground Plane (TGP) technology that interfaces with doide laser bars in order to spread heat and transport it to the laser cooling loop.During Phase II ...

  8. Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)- Superlattice Light Emitting Diode Arrays (SLEDS)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: MDA13017

    We propose to monolithically integrate an infrared light emitting diode (IRLED) array on the backside of a GaAs substrate whose frontside contains an array of driver circuits. We will develop smaller GaAs substrate via technology to enable smaller pixel pitch and realize a large-scale GaAs-SLEDS read-in integrated circuit (RIIC). Our team consists of experts in IRLED fabrication, RIIC design, Ga ...

  9. Extreme Long Life High Energy Battery

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA13011

    State-of-the-art battery power sources cannot adequately meet the combined energy density and long life requirements of existing and emerging military applications such as environmental sensors and other sensitive systems. There is a need for a new battery technology that can provide high-energy and long-life in a small robust form factor. In Phase I, ADA Technologies Inc. (ADA) successfully dem ...

  10. High Power Fiber Laser Array High Accuracy Pointing and End Preparation

    SBC: OPTICAL ENGINES, INC            Topic: MDA13019

    This proposed phase 2 program builds on the foundations established in the phase 1 effort to demonstrate both a one dimensional close packed removable array for spectrally combined systems, and a two dimensional large collimated array for both diffractive optical element (DOE) coherently combined systems and also for multi aperture systems. This proposed program is well within Optical Engines exp ...
