  1. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Lyapunov Technologies LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Managing multi-level risks ranging from the fiscal/personnel resources to fluctuating material/production costs have always been challenges due to the integrated nature of Air Force (AF) with governmental and industrial partners.Establishing a quantitative framework that provides basis for making informed decisions on these pressing issues can greatly impact how Air Force strategically allocate va ...

  2. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: ECSQUARED INC.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Petal is a novel bio-solar proposal to generate power using plant photosynthetic proteins combined to nanotubes bonded to a conductive substrate.The use of this architecture should allow for high efficiencies in the capture and harvest of photons and the generation of solar power in a very flexible format.This format will allow for scaling from micro to industrial scales.

  3. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: 4TH PHASE WATER TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Durable and robust large-area ultrathin CNT sheets can be produced from pristine CNT sheets following proprietary CNT purification and densification processes. The resulting CNT sheets are free-standing, flexible, durable, robust, ultrathin (< 5 m) and lightweight (~6 g per m2). They withstand corrosion and heat and are superior at shielding EMI (effectiveness >= 55 dB in the X band).

  4. High energy density radioisotope batteries for highly stable and long-term reliable power generation

    SBC: Infinity Power LLC            Topic: N191041

    Nuclear batteries have enormous potential as power sources and have many benefits over other types of portable power sources. Nuclear batteries can provide power for at least as long as the isotope half-life and the energetic nature of nuclear radiation means that only a small mass of radioisotope material is required to achieve a high power output and therefore they can have power densities that ...

  5. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  6. 6U CubeSat EO/IR Solutions for Operational Weather Demo

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF191006

    In this Phase I Air Force SBIR program, Phase Sensitive Innovations seeks deployment of a hyperspectral microwave photonic radiometer operating full band at V-Band (50-75 GHz) and/or G-Band (110-300 GHz) with 1 GHz spectral resolution on a 6U CubeSat bus in polar orbit for remote sensing applications.Our payload consumes about 2U, while 4U are available for avionics (e.g. attitude control, power, ...

  7. Next-Generation Radioisotope Power System

    SBC: ZENO POWER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF183005

    Energy security and resilience is a paramount concern for the Air Force and the DoD. Zeno Power Systems is developing a next-generation radioisotope power system (RPS) that will be able to provide non-stop power for months to years at a time. RPS have the ability to provide consistent and reliable energy, but their use has been limited in the past due to their low specific-powers and inability to ...

  8. Damage Tolerance Analysis of Grinding Burn Cracks in High Strength Steels

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF172001

    Landing gear are often made from high strength steels, such as 300M , which are known to have excellent damage resistance when properly manufactured and maintained but to have lesser damage tolerance when compromised. For example, the grinding process, when done improperly, can heat the steel excessively and cause undesirable microstructural transformations, called grinding burns, which often cont ...

  9. Development of In-Process Monitoring Closed-Loop Feedback for Use in Aluminum Alloy Additive Manufacturing (AM) Applications

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: A17003

    The overall goal of this project is to develop an in-process defect monitoring and correction technique for additive manufacturing (AM) of aluminum alloy to improve repeatability for geometric dimensions, material properties, and quality. In Phase I, Sentient collaborated with Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab, and successfully completed all proposed tasks demonstrating two key capabili ...

  10. Multicore Fiber Optic Package Optical Subassembly for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182101

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a balanced detection analog photonic link consisting of a DFB laser, a dual-output high-speed, low-Vp mach-zehnder modulator (MZM) and a high-power, high-linearity balanced photodetector (BPD) using a dual-core, single mode, multicore fiber (MCF) that is supplied by our subcontractor, OFS. We will design, fabricate and characterize (phase I) the MZM and the BPD, ...
