  1. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT:In this phase II effort we will commercialize the high speed, high power, modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes (PDs). To this end, we will develop reliable packaging solutions for discrete PDs, PD arrays, balanced PDs and waveguide based PDs. We will also transition the chip fabrication process for continuous, high volume supply of quality MUTC PD chips. In the first six mont ...

  2. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    Welding of HPS70W is well understood when using submerged arc welding (SAW) and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) techniques. A Welding Advisory Group (WAG) which consisted of technical advisors from the Navy, AISI, and FHWA, major filler metal manufacturers, and steel producers determined the guidelines for welding HPS70W. As a result, comprehensive guidelines and welding procedures exist for SAW ...

  5. Identification and Resolution of Events

    SBC: INTUIDEX INC.            Topic: AF083055

    ABSTRACT:The Air Force has a need to maintain strong intelligence capability in semi-permissive and anti-access area denial (A2/AD) scenarios where full-motion video (FMV)-based surveillance assets are rare or unavailable. In such environments, priority is given to leveraging any and all other sources of intelligence available, which may include ?open sources? of data available on the public Web, ...

  6. Inferring Pearls of Great Price in Relational Data

    SBC: INTUIDEX INC.            Topic: AF141055

    ABSTRACT:A primary challenge facing military data analysts (and the general populace) is data deluge, where the volume of data available at ones fingertips drowns human capability to leverage or exploit it all effectively. There exists a strong need to go beyond the collection of data, to the pinpointing of data that is valuable to them at the present moment in time. By considering value from a ut ...

  7. POSS Nanochemical Technology for Radiation Hardened/Tolerant Systems

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: MDA04036

    ABSTRACT:Specialty elastomers, such as hydrogenated acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR) and fluoroelastomer (FKM), are widely utilized as high performance seals in numerous aerospace vehicles and components. The elastomer sealing industry and its products are primarily based on a limited pool of feedstocks that were last advanced in the 1970's. Using current technology, elastomeric seals must b ...

  8. Bearing Analytical Software Development and Validation

    SBC: Wedeven Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF131163

    ABSTRACT: This proposal describes an analytical approach to model rolling element bearings for gas turbines and similar drive systems. Detailed approaches for modeling bearing material fatigue life, bearing heat generation, and tribology are presented. The resulting analytical bearing code will enable gas turbine engineers and designers to better assess engine lubrication system thermal loads a ...

  10. Thermal Enhancements for Separable Thermal Mechanical Interfaces

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131077

    ABSTRACT:The proposed SBIR Phase II program will develop a thermally enhanced, separable thermal mechanical interface (STMI) that significantly enhances heat transfer by providing a direct thermal path from the high power density components to the heat sink. In the current commercial off-the-shelf STMI multiple interfaces significantly increase the thermal resistance resulting in marginal heat tra ...
