  1. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...

  2. Reduced Cavitation, High Efficiency Outboard Propulsors for Small Planing Craft

    SBC: CANDENT TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: N17AT019

    The Candent Technologies Reduced Cavitation, High Efficiency Outboard Propulsor for Small Planing Craft Phase II program is structured to develop an advanced waterjet propulsor for the Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC). This new axial flow waterjet propulsion system is designed as a bolt on assembly that replaces the lower unit of the existing MFE 55 outboard motor. This new propulsion system inc ...

  3. Generator Power Recapture

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF161008

    The Air Force rebuilds and tests many aircraft and ground-power generators each year, involving many hours of loaded run-time with dissipative load banks. To improve facility energy efficiency and to have a positive environmental impact, a regenerative ac/dc load bank is proposed to push power from generator testing back to the electric grid. The proposed generator power recapture unit (GPRU) will ...

  4. Advanced Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Group 2-3 UAS engines have low mean time between overhauls (MTBOs), often with as little as 200-400 hours before maintenance must be conducted.This leads to significant maintenance cost and logistics tail for deployed operations.Two-stroke piston and rotary engines for Group 2-3 platforms have common maintenance drivers such as carbon fouling, and wear of cylinders, housings and bearings.Phase I r ...

  5. Instant k-Space Tomography for Spatial-Spectral Monitoring

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT013

    The Army is frequently forced to operate in hostile climates. Heavy fog, rain, snow, and dust storms can inhibit the performance of tracking technologies such as mid-wave infrared cameras. In such conditions, Army early warning systems are blinded and put personnel and assets at risk.There is a specific need for a degraded visual environment (DVE) penetrative target tracking solution.Radio frequen ...

  6. Effects of sustained vibration and high temperature environments on polymer bonded composite materials

    SBC: LEVEL 6 ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF181005

    Comparatively little research has explored the influence of mechanical vibrations on energetic materials (or other polymer-bonded composite materials), despite the importance of these materials in defense-related applications.Recently, interest has started to grow, but the vast majority of research has been focused on developing a basic physical understanding, rather than establishing standardized ...

  7. Rotating Detonation Engines for Increased Payload to Orbit at Lower Cost

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF181030

    The space launch community has been pursuing improvements in performance and efficiencies leading to higher specific impulses since the inception of rocketry. This effort has been largely successful reaching near theoretical limits for constant pressure combustion devices leaving little margin for higher specific impulses. Todays advances in traditional rocket engines focus on incremental improvem ...

  8. 6000297

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF18AT017

    We propose to develop an innovative concept of the high speed dynamic IRSP that combines components and devices from proven suppliers with novel system-level research topics from CDS and University of Delaware. Having previously built and delivered working LED IRSPs to users gives CDS a unique advantage. In line with system theme of the solicitation, our phase 1 research topics are focused on syst ...

  9. Advanced Material/Sealing Concepts for Small Heavy-Fuel, Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPAs) Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Engine Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF181034

    Advanced sealing technologies are needed for heavy fuel internal combustion (IC) engines that power small Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA).Advanced sealing and material technologies will be evaluated to provide improved durability, improved performance and reduced friction in small heavy fuel engine classes. Improvements will be established in engine designs and the material and coating pairs to re ...

  10. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    This proposed effort will focus on the design, development and analysis of a high voltage BST based varactor for tunable filter applications. The high voltage BST varactor will enable wide tuning range filters with high quality factor and increased power handling and linearity. Advanced filter design techniques will also be leveraged to increase the effective quality factor of the filter resonator ...
