  1. Functional Additive Manufacturing for Printable & Networkable Sensors to Detect Energetics and Other Threat Materials

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A17AT004

    Chemiresistors are an important class of electronic sensors that detect the presence of analytes/chemicals via a change in the resistance of a sensor element. A typical interdigitated electrode array is deposited onto an insulating substrate with metallic electrodes that have feature sizes in the 5-500 m range. The metal electrodes are typically sputter coated onto the substrate, using lithogra ...

  4. A Preliminary Design Tool for Shrouded-Fans

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Shrouded-fans are an integral part of the U.S. Army's transportation systems. TheRAH-66's fan-tail, Sikorsky's Cypher and Micro-Craft's UAV are testimonials to theirincreasing importance. Shrouded-fans are efficient, but aerodynamically very complex,particularly in non-axial flight conditions such as conversion modes. The viscouscharacteristics of the flow through the shrouded-fan play an imortan ...

  5. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...

  8. Metrics of an intuitive GUI for integrating micromagnetic simulation engine OOMMF with RF computation software SPICE

    SBC: Complex Computation, LLC            Topic: SB162007

    There is a DoD need for an interface of nonlinear micromagnetic computation engines with standard RF circuit design tools. Such an interface will allow RF design engineers to easily and intuitively simulate circuits containing certain nonlinear micromagnetic self-adaptive components such as frequency selective limiters (FSL) and signal-to-noise enhancers (SNE) at the fundamental materials level, a ...

  9. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...
