  1. Hypersonic Propulsion: Enhancing Robustness in Mid-Scale Scramjets

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093182

    ABSTRACT: Systima is proposing a Phase II SBIR program for a Scramjet Cold-Start Gas Generator (SCS-GG). Systima"s concepts combine the advanced injection methods and advanced ignition propellants into a reliable, low weight and volume cold-start solution. During Phase II, Systima will mature its gas generator and injection system designs and demonstration testing to verify the performance chara ...

  3. Energy Deposition to Sculpt Upstream Densities and Control Common Aerovehicle, Strongly Reducing Drag and Ablation

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF071266

    A versatile technique will be applied to preferentially reduce drag on different CAV designs, serving as an innovative approach to control effectors. Once air is accelerated by a high speed vehicle, strong drag forces are generated which must be countered by control surfaces. This requires tremendous actuator force and ablation resistance by the surfaces. Our approach will control the distribution ...

  4. Noise and Artifact Reduction in Computed Tomography (CT) Images

    SBC: JDLL, INC.            Topic: AF05203

    Current high-energy computed tomography (CT) techniques for nondestructive testing (NDT) of solid rocket motors (SRM) and other large industrial objects often produce inferior imagery due to artifacts, impairing detection, identification, and measurement of anomalies. Phase I results verified that these artifacts arise from failure of assumptions implicit in the filtered backprojection algorithm. ...

  5. High Performance, Compact Capacitors for Pulse Forming Networks


    This project addresses the development of a solid state polymer multilayer capacitor composed of thousands of nano-thick dielectric layers and self healing aluminum electrodes. Unlike conventional self supported polymer capacitor films that have limited polymer chemistries and dielectric thickness, the proposed capacitor system makes use of a family of highly cross linked amorphous polymer dielec ...

  6. High-Power 2 Micron Fiber Lasers

    SBC: ADVALUE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF071137

    Thulium doped fiber laser near 2 micron is of great interest because of the potential possibility of combining high efficiency, high output power, and retina safety together. This proposal is for the development of new Tm-doped glass fiber for efficient high power 2ƒnmicron fiber laser capable of generating an output power of up to thousands watts. The doping concentration of the proposed glass f ...

  8. Novel High Temperature Geopolymer for Spall-resistant Pavement Materials

    SBC: Sommer Materials Research, Inc.            Topic: AF071108

    During the last two decades, there has been considerable interest and research in inorganic polymers (“geopolymers”) for high-temperature applications. Geopolymers are manufactured by combining aluminosilicate powders with activating liquids through a polycondensation reaction. The resulting cured geopolymer can exhibit high compressive strengths after only four hours of set time. Geopolyme ...
