  1. 700 Watt Diesel e-MAV Battery Charger / Ground Power Unit / Mini Generator Set

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB022050

    During Phase I of this SBIR effort, D-STAR Engineering aimed to combine the best features of an electric-motor powered Micro Air Vehicle (e-MAV), and a micro-diesel engine, and explore the development of a JP-8 fueled hybrid diesel electric propulsion system for use on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). D-STAR had identified two approaches for development of such a hybrid-electric UAV : A lon ...

  4. Advanced High Mass Fraction Tactical Rocket Motor Case

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The maturation of Titanium Matrix Composite into an affordable material system with production experience on the F-16 opens up a wide series of opportunities for improved propulsion performance. This SBIR builds on the baseline TMC demonstrations being conducted by FMW and ATK and extends them to advanced systems. The use of configured residual stress states and enhanced Titanium matrix systems ...

  5. Advanced Rocket Propulsion Technologies

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The future propulsion requirements of the USAF will require substantial performance improvements, especially stage mass fraction as defined by the Phase III IHPRPT goals. The development and transition to production of titanium matrix composites (TMC) offer the potential of significant mass fraction gains for liquid engines. This program proposes the substitution of TMC into the impeller, which ...

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF03270

    General visual inspection, the current practice of aircraft wire maintenance, almost entirely depends on human decision-making. An Inspector reads/deciphers wire identification markings and sorts through voluminous printed documents to determine relevant interconnection data. Intangible limitations such as operator skills and tangible issues such as limited access, poor lighting and random orient ...

  7. Algorithms for Rapid and Accurate Depth Localization of Targets for Mine Avoidance

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04218

    The US Navy's new DD(X) destroyer currently under design features amongst its extensive sensor suite an innovative dual (high frequency and mid-frequency) frequency, active bow sonar. One of the primary missions of the high frequency (HF) component of the bow-sonar will be in-stride mine avoidance. Advanced signal processing algorithms, developed for predecessor sonars aboard modern US submarine ...

  8. Aspect-Oriented Secure Fuselet Runtime Environment

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: MDA04044

    We propose to develop a secure runtime environment for fuselet-based missile targeting and threat analysis built on a foundation of aspect-oriented secure web services. Aspect-oriented techniques enable the modularization of crosscutting concerns such as remote access, security, transactions, and monitoring. We will compose aspect-oriented instrumentation with distributed object technologies in a ...

  10. Avalanche Injected Photocathode

    SBC: NanoSciences Corporation/NanoSystems Inc            Topic: N04043

    One of the key developments in the present generation of FEL's is the RF photocathode injector enabling production of electron bunches with nC of charge at emittances of several mm-mrads. Advances in photo-injector design have produced significant improvement in operational capability of FEL sources. A major issue in electron accelerator and FEL communities is the search for a suitable photocathod ...
