  1. High-Speed Multi-Axis Nanopositioning Systems for Next-Generation CD Metrology and Lithography

    SBC: NPOINT, INC.            Topic: BMDO02016

    There are several technology nodes on the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconduc-tors (ITRS) for which metrology and lithography tools must be developed or improved. The roadmap projects increasingly smaller feature sizes, providing the rationale for the development of next-generation lithography techniques as well as for the continuing improvement of optical lithography techniques. In a ...

  2. Fault-to-Failure Progression Modeling of Propulsion System and Drive Train Bearings for Prognostic and Useful Performance Life Remaining Predictions

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N02195

    Military and commercial aircraft operators are moving toward predictive maintenance to minimize costs while maximizing asset availability and safety. Key technological prerequisites for this new approach are the ability to monitor the condition of critical components, and the ability to accurately forecast their remaining useful life. Phase I of this project clearly demonstrated the feasibility of ...

  3. Carbon Foam Composite Tooling


    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 ...

  4. Feasibility of Grid-based Distributed Real-Time Command and Control

    SBC: ECHELON 4 LLC            Topic: AF03094

    Improvements in the speed and efficacy of enterprise strategic, operational and tactical decision and control (e.g., military command and control) require application of sophisticated automation. Such automation, particularly in support of collaboration among distributed autonomous entities, must provide for the dynamic engagement of individuals from allied enterprises into freely-associative com ...

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


    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 ...

  6. Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler


    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 ...

  7. Modular Intelligent Hydrogen Transfer System (MIHTS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF03293

    ORBITEC proposes an innovative Modular Intelligent Hydrogen Transfer System (MIHTS) to meet USAF vehicle fleet needs for hydrogen-fueled transportation applications. It is widely anticipated that a hydrogen energy economy will evolve and become the standard source of fuel for transportation, and other energy requirements, in the US and abroad. Hydrogen offers the promise of a renewable energy so ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Electrical Detection of Viruses Using Liquid Crystals

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: PA01052

    In this Phase 2 application, we will continue development of a method for rapid detection of virus. In our Phase 1 work, we demonstrated that liquid crystals could generate a quantifiable optical signal upon recognition of a target molecule bound to a surface. To facilitate the application of this technology for biosensing we will transduce the liquid crystal orientational response to the target i ...
