  2. Carbon Foam Composite Tooling

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA03049

    Touchstone Research Laboratory has developed a novel material, CFOAMr. The primary enabling carbon foam characteristic is that the Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) values are comparable to carbon fiber polymer matrix systems in manufacturing advanced composites. Other advantages of carbon foam-based tools are low mass, reduced energy, easy modifications, unmatched repair capabilities, and r ...

  3. Creative Robots to Defeat Deeply Buried Targets

    SBC: IMAGINATION ENGINES, INC.            Topic: AF03148

    In Phase I, Imagination Engines, Inc. (IEI) has made revolutionary advances in the field of autonomous robotics by developing deliberative neural architectures capable of self-originating strategies in navigating and mapping virtual reality environments. Having overcome critical technical issues associated with two-way communication between these neural structures and the virtual robots they gover ...

  4. Coal-Based Porous Graphite for Aerospace Heat Exchanger Applications

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: AF03118

    A newly developed "coal-based" porous graphite material has been recently produced. This development is a direct result of Touchstone Research Laboratory's Phase I funding to develop enhanced-strength carbon foam heat-exchanger materials for aerospace applications since low density carbon foams cannot endure high bleed air pressures in aerospace pre-coolers and heat exchangers. The newly develope ...

  5. Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: MANNING APPLIED TECHNOLOGY            Topic: ARMY03T20

    Development of an Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler with enhanced optical triggering capability is proposed, following a highly successful Phase I effort that clearly demonstrated feasibility. The threat of a bioaerosol attack can be partially mitigated by deployment of a cost-effective sensor network. High priority programs, such as BioWatch and Portal Shield will benefit from a sensor compliant to Join ...

  6. Improve/develop metrology for VLA (very low absorption) Coatings

    SBC: METASTABLE INSTRUMENTS, INC            Topic: MDA02045

    The development of fast, reliable, accurate and non-destructive absorption measurements is critical to the development of very low absorption/high laser damage threshold optical thin films for HEL and other high value applications. The objective of this research project is to continue development of a practical method for quickly and accurately measuring the very low absorption in optical thin fi ...

  7. Future Technology for Aerospace Structures Technology

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF03237

    The continued development of hypersonic vehicles and high performance space access vehicles has highlighted the importance of light-weight, load-bearing structures capable of prolonged exposure at elevated temperatures. The optimal solution to this problem would be a hot primary structure capable of supporting the required loads at elevated temperature while also providing the necessary thermal pr ...

  8. Weather Extension for a Commercial Geographic Information System

    SBC: PROLOGIC, INC.            Topic: AF03094

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop a new technology that provides 2D/3D/4D visualization of weather information within a commercial GIS (Geographic Information System) environment. GIS systems provide rich support for mapping, geographic data handling, spatial query, and geographic analysis functionality, but do not include native support for weather. GIS systems typically use static (atemp ...

  9. Fluorescent Coated Filters for Detection of Biological Warfare Agent Microorganisms in Water

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: ARMY02T009

    Reliable and sensitive detection of biowarfare agents (BWAs) such as Bacillus anthracis, Yersinia pestis, Francisella tularensis, ricin, botulinum toxin, etc. is an important challenge for both military operations and domestic anti-terrorism efforts. We are proposing to develop a biomimetic polymer coating, containing receptors for BWA targets, that becomes fluorescent when exposed to samples con ...

  10. Rigorous Analysis and Design of Nano-Photonic Devices using a Novel Hardware Approach

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB031016

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is integrating systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. Examples range from complete telecommunication systems on a chip to implantable medical devices smaller than human cells. The majority of these devices apply hybrid designs that integrate on a commensurate scale electronics with active and passive optical components. ...
