  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. 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 ...

  3. Creating a Global Infrastructure for Virtual Aids to Navigation (vATON

    SBC: WisdomTools Enterprises Inc            Topic: N/A

    As we look towards the next decade there are many opportunities to enhance services for navigation which compliment, enhance, and replace existing Aids to Navigation technologies. This Phase II project will continue the US Coast Guard¿s investigation of the development of a Virtual Aids to Navigation system by building a working prototype that delivers real-time data to the mariner. The vATON s ...

  4. High Temperature Tribological Lubricants for Low Heat Rejection, High Temperature Operation Diesel Engine

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: A02237

    The Future Combat System (FCS) military diesel engine propulsion systems tribological considerations are predicted to be compromised primarily by the temperature capability of the lubricating fluid. Thermal oxidation resulting in lubricant work in rigid condition breakdown and formation of deposits are typical causes of engine failure at high temperature operating conditions. Work in the Phase I ...

  6. Personnel Detection and Warning Systems for Perimeter, Ambush, and Casualty Detection.

    SBC: Safety Dynamics            Topic: A03060

    Each sound and odor has a distinct signature which when detected amidst high noise conditions can offer a superior level of protection and knowledge. Over the last six years, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and DARPA have funded research at University of Southern California and Tufts University Medical School on advanced neural networking algorithms (Dynamic Synapse Neural Network - DSNN) to di ...

  7. Development of a Field Portable Acousto-Optical Ultrasonic Evaluation System

    SBC: SANTEC SYSTEMS INC            Topic: A02044

    In Phase I of this SBIR project, novel acousto-optic (AO) sensors were developed that offered many advantages over current state-of-the-art AO sensors. These sensors were used to demonstrate feasibility of a simple, fast and low-cost method for NDE of fielded structures. The proposed Phase II work will build on the success of Phase I to refine the AO sensor concepts and the methodologies for app ...

  8. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During Phase I of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for a high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an independent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Ve ...

  9. Protecting Sensitive Data through Novel Algorithm Transformations and Algebraic Splitting

    SBC: ARXAN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD05A10

    This Phase II proposal extends the technique developed during Phase I for protecting CPI into a commercially viable and generally applicable source-to-source transformation engine. In addition, we expand the Phase I approach to support high-performance secure computation through careful division of tasks, between a slower secured processor, and multiple high-performance general-purpose COTS proce ...

  10. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...
