  1. A Lightweight Frame-Style Troop Seat for Naval Helicopters

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N04008

    This proposal outlines a program to develop a new lightweight troop seat that will weigh significantly less than those now in use. The concept uses both innovative design features as well as advanced materials to achieve this goal. The seat will provide superior crashworthiness to those now in use while maintaining or exceeding the comfort levels, operational convenience, and reliability now ach ...

  2. A novel micro-channel heat exchanger for high heat flux electronics

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N03T022

    In this Phase I STTR program, Advanced Ceramics Research Inc. (ACR) and its university partner successfully developed and optimized a novel, low-cost, micro/milli-channel heat exchanger system for high power electronic applications for the Navy and other DoD applications. ACR used the extrusion freeform fabrication process to create the novel heat exchange structures. The samples were tested in si ...

  3. A Novel Solid Electrolyte for Lithium Battery Systems

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF04193

    Solid lithium-ion conductive electrolytes offer great promise to the development of low cost, long life, safe lithium based batteries. Such solid electrolyte must have an ionic conductivity greater than 10-3 S/cm, lithium-ion transference number close to unity and stability up to 5 V. The present conventional solid polymer electrolytes are well short of meeting these requirements. A novel solid ...

  4. A Predictive Diagnostic System with Self-Learning for Space Mechanisms

    SBC: SPACEWORKS, INC.            Topic: MDA04T022

    SpaceWorks and the Georgia Institute of Technology propose an integrated predictive diagnostic system for evaluating the condition of spacecraft moving parts. Specific mechanisms to be addressed include reaction and momentum wheels, gimbals, flywheels and cryocoolers. To accurately estimate the remaining life of components, an intelligent diagnostic and prognostic monitoring and computational st ...

  5. A Process That Rapidly Produces Be/Be Alloys in Net Shape at Low Cost Without Exposure of the Workforce

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: MDA04T011

    Beryllium and beryllium alloys are strategic to many defense/aerospace applications, but whose use is limited due to current and anticipated more stringent health and safety concerns which result in long lead times for fabrication and very high cost. An innovative approach that reduces fabrication time to a matter of hours to a few days results in low cost and produces net shapes without exposure ...

  7. Advanced Fast-electronic Power Control System for Fuel Cell

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF04194

    The US Air Force will need smarter power source equipment to supplement primary power systems in remote-support ground stations in order to sustain long-term operations. Typically, solar based power systems are used. Fuel cell technologies and solar array source make the sources renewable and environmentally safe. However, fuel cell technologies require complex controlling scheme that must ensure ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. All Solid State, High Speed Optical Limiter for Laser Communications Systems

    SBC: BEAMTEK, INC.            Topic: AF04222

    The objective of this proposal is to develop an all solid-state inorganic glass optical limiter with low insertion loss in near infrared region from 800 to 1600nm. The proposed optical limiter is a nano-sized particle doped optical glass. It is an optical glass plate consisting of two layers: one contains nano-particles, and the other doesn't. At low incident optical power or pulse energy, its tra ...
