  2. W-band Microwave Amplifier Power Module

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF063001

    InnoSys proposes the advanced development of microwave power modules (MPMs) that combine monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) driver amplifiers with miniature traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers. This provides high power density at low cost and a small size and weight. When used as a driver amplifier in the MPM, the V/W band MMIC provides sufficient power and gain to drive the special ...

  3. Noise and Artifact Reduction in Computed Tomography (CT) Images

    SBC: JDLL, INC.            Topic: AF05203

    Current high-energy computed tomography (CT) techniques for nondestructive testing (NDT) of solid rocket motors (SRM) and other large industrial objects often produce inferior imagery due to artifacts, impairing detection, identification, and measurement of anomalies. Phase I results verified that these artifacts arise from failure of assumptions implicit in the filtered backprojection algorithm. ...

  4. Artificial Intelligence Hybrid Range Scheduler

    SBC: QUANTUM LEAP INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    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 ...

  5. Scramjet Combustor Simulations using Reduced Chemical Kinetics for Practical Fuels

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N/A

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is playing an increasingly important role in U.S. industry. In the aerospace industry, where the cost of construction and operation of sub-scale and prototype units increases significantly with the increase in size andspeed of aircraft, CFD plays an important role as an adjunct to experimentation in reducing the costs of testing and scale-up and the time to take ...

  6. Novel High Temperature Geopolymer for Spall-resistant Pavement Materials

    SBC: Sommer Materials Research, Inc.            Topic: AF071108

    During the last two decades, there has been considerable interest and research in inorganic polymers (“geopolymers”) for high-temperature applications. Geopolymers are manufactured by combining aluminosilicate powders with activating liquids through a polycondensation reaction. The resulting cured geopolymer can exhibit high compressive strengths after only four hours of set time. Geopolyme ...

  7. Improved Radio Frequency (RF) Polymer Substrates for Antennas

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: AF071134

    Based on multiple technology platforms and theoretical analyses, in the Phase I program we have demonstrated the feasibility that RF polymers with desirable high frequency properties can be achieved. Following Edison¡¯s model of product and process development for technology innovations, Phase-II will pursue further incremental improvement in material properties upon the concept-proving materi ...

  8. Cost Competitive Wave Energy Without Moving Parts

    SBC: Oscilla Power, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Oscilla Power, Inc. (OPI) is developing a utility-scale wave energy harvester that is enabled by low cost and readily-available magnetostrictive alloys. T his device, which utilizes no moving parts, has the potential to deliver predictable quantities of electric power to coastal utilities, industrial users, and remote facilities at costs competitive with coal or gas. The Phase I project demonstra ...

  9. Highly Linear E-Band Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF093147

    The Air Force has identified a need for an advanced traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA) that supports future generations of broad bandwidth, efficient and linear military satellite and terrestrial communications. To address this need, InnoSys proposes to develop innovative solutions for advanced TWTAs that operate from 81 to 86 GHz, deliver high efficiency greater than 30% with a small signal ga ...

  10. Modeling and Simulation Tools for Predicting Hypergolicity in Energetic Ionic Liquids

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF083125

    ABSTRACT: Building on the demonstrated in Phase-I success of application of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations for investigation of hypergolic and non-hypergolic ionic liquid(IL)-based fuels, we propose to develop and validate a set of simulation tools and empirical correlations that will allow to predict hypergolicity of a wide variety IL/oxidizer combinations. The proposed simulation tools wil ...
