  1. Low Conductivity for Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBCs)

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Higher inlet temperatures for turbine engines will provide significant benefits in fuel efficiency and performance for both military and commercial air vehicles. To accomplish this goal, new generation thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) with superiorreliability and durability will be needed. The currently-used zirconia-based TBCs do not adequately meet thermal conductivity requirements and they suf ...

  2. Intersensor Information Assurance

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design, fabricate, and test a novel x-ray detector for use in industrial CT scanners. This linear detector array combines high spatial resolution and long array length to achieve high-resolution scans on large objects. We propose to supplyan x-ray scanner to the Army Research Laboratory for non-destructive testing that includes this linear array with a commercial flat-panel area de ...

  3. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers for the ABL

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of CU Aerospace's Phase II work will be to experimentally characterize the ElectriCOIL flow using advanced diagnostics and to demonstrate lasing of this electrically assisted chemical iodine laser. CU Aerospace (CUA) and theUniversity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) believe that it is possible to construct a highly efficient electric generation scheme to provide the pr ...

  4. Electromagnetic-Based Computer Aided Design (CAD) for Wavelength Scale Optics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is the continued integration of systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. While this has led to personal computers that offer more functionality and faster computational speeds, ithas also spurred the development of hybrid optoelectronic systems on a chip (SOCs). Currently, such SOCs are receiving significant interest fro ...

  5. Monolithically Integrated Multi-color Large HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    The availability of large format, multicolor, high performance infrared focal plane arrays is of the utmost importance to future DoD missions. The semiconductor HgCdTe is the material of choice for multicolor arrays due to its bandgap tunabilitythroughout the infrared spectral range and its high quantum efficiency. Present day 2nd generation focal plane array technology, based on the hybridizati ...

  6. In-situ p-type doping activation near the MBE growth temperature of HgCdTe for advanced LWIR detectors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    High-performance HgCdTe infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) sensing in the long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) region and advanced structures such as multi-color detectors required for future generation IRFPAs are highly desirable for various Air Forceapplications. Such device architectures require not only reliable extrinsic n- and p-type doping of HgCdTe but also the precise control of composition ...

  7. Electronic Warfare Adaptive Spatial/Spectral Cancellation

    SBC: LINDSEY ASSOC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective in this exploratory development is to design, fabricate and test a dual-mode radome for a high speed missile application. Performance, cost and ease of manufacturing will be emphasized. Radome models will be produced to be as close toflight hardware as practical. The use of an insert to provide performance enhancements will be incorporated into the design.

  9. Materials for Superlattice Infrared Detectors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High performance infrared detectors with cutoff wavelength above 16 micrometers are highly needed for many applications such as early detection of long range missiles, pollution monitoring, and astronomy. Currently available detectors with high quantumefficiency and high uniformity in this wavelength range are extrinsic silicon detectors which have to be cooled below 10K. Here, we propose novel te ...

  10. Artificial Intelligence Hybrid Range Scheduler


    Scheduling is a complex, NP-hard problem that challenges the use of any single solution technique. In Phase I, we built a model that uses our multi-technique Quantum Leap Problem Solving Engine to solve a representative but simplified version of the AirForce Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) contact scheduling problem. The system demonstrated that it could schedule the hundreds (500 to 600) of t ...
