  1. High-Power 2 Micron Fiber Lasers

    SBC: ADVALUE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF071137

    Thulium doped fiber laser near 2 micron is of great interest because of the potential possibility of combining high efficiency, high output power, and retina safety together. This proposal is for the development of new Tm-doped glass fiber for efficient high power 2ƒnmicron fiber laser capable of generating an output power of up to thousands watts. The doping concentration of the proposed glass f ...

  5. Development of Light-Weight, Low-Cost Multichannels Membrane Reformer

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A novel approach for the development of a lightweight, low-cost, compact, and quick start-up on-board fuel reformer is proposed in this Phase II program. The approach is based on a novel MER¿s technique for the fabrication of multichannel mini-reactors incorporating hydrogen separating membrane. Multichannel mini-reactor shrinks the dimensions through which energy and reactants travel to their ...

  6. Advanced Carbon Nanotubes- Based Polymer Matrix Composites for Satellites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF063009

    The Phase I results have proven the feasibility of creating breakthrough polymer matrix composites (PMC) with high-loadings of well dispersed nanotubes in engineering polymer matrixes. The exceptional mechanical properties of the developed PMCs will be further improved in the Phase II effort by increasing the nanotube loading in the PMC to the packing limit, through optimizing the interface of the ...

  7. Novel Field Programmable Technology based on Latching Micro-Electromagnetic Switches

    SBC: MICROLAB            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a new type of field-programmable logic device consisting of a custom ASIC chip and monolithically post-processed MEMS switches integrated with on-chip permanent magnets. The enabling components of this integrated microsystem are thenew MEMS switches demonstrated in Phase I with drastically reduced feature sizes. The main components of the Phase II work consist of optimizing ...

  8. Energy Deposition to Sculpt Upstream Densities and Control Common Aerovehicle, Strongly Reducing Drag and Ablation

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF071266

    A versatile technique will be applied to preferentially reduce drag on different CAV designs, serving as an innovative approach to control effectors. Once air is accelerated by a high speed vehicle, strong drag forces are generated which must be countered by control surfaces. This requires tremendous actuator force and ablation resistance by the surfaces. Our approach will control the distribution ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. High Performance, Compact Capacitors for Pulse Forming Networks


    This project addresses the development of a solid state polymer multilayer capacitor composed of thousands of nano-thick dielectric layers and self healing aluminum electrodes. Unlike conventional self supported polymer capacitor films that have limited polymer chemistries and dielectric thickness, the proposed capacitor system makes use of a family of highly cross linked amorphous polymer dielec ...
