  3. Novel Electrochemical Sensor for the Determination of JP-8 Fuel Additives

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: A18097

    The steady decline in JP-8 fuel suppliers and consequent cost increase results in increased costs and fuel shortages for the US government.Conversion to civilian aviation fuels with additives represents savings in terms of fuel costs as well as simplified infrastructure and reduced costs associated with distribution and storage of JP-8, which requires segregation from other fuels.This proposal res ...

  4. Advanced Lithium Sulfur Battery

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A17050

    As tactical and deployed electrical power demands increase for soldiers, there is a commensurate need to increase the energy density of military batteries (i.e. man portable power) to ease the weight burden additional power capacity entails. Lithium-sulfur batteries, as replacement for current lithium ion batteries, are a promising advancement with theoretical specific energy of 2600Wh/kg and demo ...

  5. Unmanned CASEVAC Movement and Maneuver Controls

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A17066

    Rapid patient evacuation is critical to minimize injury or save the life of the warfighter. Unmanned air and ground vehicles (UAV/UGV) provide a solution to enable quick casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) leveraging multi-purpose vehicles such as cargo transport. However, unmanned systems were typically not designed for human transport and may potentially create physiological stresses that exceed that ...

  6. Improved method for High Strength Magnesium Alloys in the as-cast Condition

    SBC: Terves Inc.            Topic: A18031

    Due to their low density and high specific properties, Magnesium alloys are often considered for applications in which weight savings are an important selection factor.There are however, some significant challenges to widespread application of magnesium alloys.Despite these potential opportunities, the use of as-cast magnesium alloys is still hampered by their lower strengths in the as cast despit ...

  7. Non-toxic Hydrophobic Coatings for Improved Infrared and Red Phosphorus Obscurant Performance

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: A17057

    Powdermet proposes a program for the development of two hydrophobic coating processes to powders using its expertise in fluid bed chemical vapor deposition (FB-CVD).The coating by CVD of these polymers is already a well-established practice, but new to use in fluid bed particle coating, so the transition is perceived as low risk.The coated particles will then be analyzed and evaluated for their ab ...

  8. Novel Remediation Technique for PFAS contaminated Soil and Sediment

    SBC: QMetry Corporation            Topic: 17NCER3A

    Both chemicals Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) are very persistent, toxic, and bio-accumulate in the environment and human body. PFAS can end up in soil from multiple sources, often mixed with other pollutants. Because of their unique lipid- and water-repellent characteristics, PFOS and PFOA are used as surface-active agents in various high-temperature applicatio ...

  9. Measurement of Force in Personnel Parachute Risers

    SBC: D'Angelo Technologies, LLC            Topic: A17127

    Parachute designers and manufacturers have long sought to obtain force data exerted on parachute risers during the various stages of deployment and flight. This data can provide valuable insight to help evaluate service life, new parachute development, and aid in computer modeling of parachute systems. Current techniques for measuring riser force require significant modification of the risers by t ...

  10. Large Fill Factor, High Aspect Ratio Dual Band Superlattice Detectors and Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: SK Infrared, LLC            Topic: A18039

    We propose the development of an improved fabrication process for the mid-wave and long-wave infrared (MWIR, LWIR) focal plane arrays (FPA) based on nBn, InAs/InAsSb, Type II Superlattice (T2SL) structures. The Phase I effort will demonstrate an etch process to achieve a trench with large depth (at least 10 m), high aspect ratio (trench widths below 4 m), and V-shaped sidewalls. This etch process ...
