  1. Gas-Kinetic Simulation of Separated Flows

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: SB072006

    This SBIR project proposes to develop a gas-kinetic CFD solver for separated turbulent flow simulation. After successfully developing prototype two-dimensional gas-kinetic BGK-NS/Burnett solvers and demonstrating the benefits of using higher-order hydrodynamic equations for separated turbulent flow simulation in Phase I, the technical objective of Phase II work will be to fully develop and validat ...

  2. Optical Modulator Bias Control for Analog Fiber Optic Link Applications

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: SB062014

    Typically, the electro-optical Mach-Zehnder interferometric intensity modulator is the key optical component that determines the ultimate performance of an externally-modulated high-performance analog RF fiber-optic link. Intrinsically, the device has a symmetric structure and has a transmission peak at zero bias. In order to operate at the maximum linearity quadrature point, the optical symmetr ...

  3. INNOVATIVE SCRAMJET FLAMEHOLDERS FOR ENHANCED MIXING

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF INNOVATIVE FLAMEHOLDER DESIGNS TO ENHANCE MIXING IN A SUPERSONIC COMBUSTION RAMJET (SCRAMJET) ENGINE IS PROPOSED. IN A SCRAMJET ENGINE OPERATING AT HYPERSONIC FLIGHT SPEEDS,THE SHORTER RESIDENCE TIME AND DECREASED MIXING RATE CAUSE DETERIORATION IN THE COMBUSTION EFFICIENCY AS COMPARED WITH LOWER SPEEDS. TWO CONFIGURATIONS RECENTLY DEVELOPED TO PROMOTE RAPID MIXING ...

  4. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    During the program baseline, LCI will develop an eyesafe, large array RT3D camera system that generates both 3D and 2D grayscale imagery in real-time that can be mounted on the iRobot PackBot. The 3D and 2D grayscale imagery can be fused in software to display both range and albedo information for each pixel in the 3D image, a display that will provide better scene understanding. During the option ...

  5. Magnetic MEMS Switches for RF Missile Seeker Applications

    SBC: MICROLAB            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed here consists of design, fabrication, packaging, and characterization of latching magnetic RF MEMS switches operational from dc through 40GHz. The active switching component of the device is a movable ferromagnetic cantilever thatelectrically shunts a gap in an on-chip transmission line (CPW and/or microstrip) to turn the switch ON and opens the gap to turn the switch OFF. Packag ...

  6. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: Modumetal, Inc.            Topic: DLA07001

    The purpose of this SBIR effort is to commercialize an innovative method for the production of Modumetal™ discrete parts. The Phase I effort has demonstrated: (1) The low-cost production of monolithic parts of various scales using a net-shape (additive) manufacturing process, (2) An new production process in which cost and production volume are decoupled, and (3) Significant improvement in pr ...

  7. Built-In Filament Control for Long Lifetime in Broad Area Diode Lasers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: ST061009

    In this Phase 2 program, nLight intends to demonstrate high-reliability / high-efficiency 808-nm broad area diode lasers. The root-cause of the failure modes of diode lasers investigated under Phase 1 will be addressed in this program. Collaborative work on built-in filament control by etching holes will continue in this program. Prototype designs first demonstrated by focused ion beam processi ...

  8. 3D Diode-Cross-Coupled Tapered Lasers for Kilowatt-Class, Chip-Scale, Laser Diode Phased Arrays

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB062013

    Based on promising results obtained under our Phase 1 SBIR contract, nLIGHT wishes to proceed with a Phase 2 program. In the proposed program, nLIGHT will continue the development of high power, single-lateral-mode tapered diode lasers. nLIGHT has identified fundamental limitations to the operation of tapered diode lasers and proposes novel design and fabrication process improvements which direc ...

  9. Non-Toxic Chemical Formulation for Incapacitation and Destruction of Small Arms and Light Weapons

    SBC: Lombardi, John L.            Topic: ST061010

    This program will entail making further refinements to a rapidly polymerizable resin which was shown during the Phase I Program to induce corrosion and ductility loss within treated steel rifle barrels. Besides optimizing the formulations, efforts will also be directed during this Phase II program towards devising suitable equipment for efficiently dispensing this resin into rifles using truck, b ...

  10. Natural Adjuvants to Enhance Efficacy of Viral Vaccines for Mariculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 812

    Marine aquaculture production now exceeds 20 million metric tons annually (FAO 2010) but viral diseases are still a major threat to the expansion of sustainable mariculture systems (National Marine Fisheries Service 2007). Pathogenic viruses continue to devastate many fish and shellfish operations every year (ICES Mariculture Committee 2004, Lightner 2011). To date, vaccines against aquatic anim ...
