  1. 1 Micron Fiber Optic Receiver for Mil-Aero Environment

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N171031

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a high-power, high-speed photodiode (PD) receiver optimized for operation at 1 micron wavelength based on collaboration with Dr. J.C. Campbells research group at the UVA. Demand of such photonic receiver arose from the urgent need of high performance microwave photonic links that replace the conventional metal cables for better SWaP, immunity to EMI and broader ...

  3. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Metal Sorting Sensor for Chemical Cleaning and Stripping Process

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161009

    ABSTRACT: After a certain amount of service time, many aircraft components need to be cleaned and the coatings on those parts need to be stripped. Prior to the chemical cleaning and stripping processes, those parts are routinely examined by inspectors to locate the part numbers and find their matches on a list. Such a visual inspection process is not only time consuming, but also prone to human er ...

  4. A PORTABLE ELECTRON COOLED ANTIPROTON STORAGE RING

    SBC: Integrated Accelerator Technol            Topic: N/A

    ANTIMATTER CONTAINS THE HIGHEST RATIO OF ENERGY STORAGE PER UNIT MASS OF ANY SUBSTANCE KNOWN TO MAN. WHEN ANTIMATTER COMES INTO CONTACT WITH NORMAL MATTER IT COMPLETELY ANNIHILATES, WITH ITS MASS CONVERTED INTO ENERGY ACCORDING TO THE FORMULA E=MC2. THE ENERGY RELEASED IN THE ANNIHILATION MAY PROVE USEFUL AS A FUTURE SOURCE OF POWER FOR APPLICATIONS REQUIRING HIGH POWER DENSITY FUEL SOURCES, SUCH ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing of Long Rod Penetrator Sabots using Carbon Nanotube Metal Matrix Composites

    SBC: Shepra INC            Topic: A17033

    Additive Manufacturing has the potential to dramatically reduce the weight and cost of long rod penetrator sabots if the right material systems can be utilized in manufacturing. While short fiber polymer composites offer significant weight and cost savings, they are limited in their maximum mechanical performance and cannot meet the specific stiffness and specific strength objectives of this progr ...

  10. Advanced and Additive Manufacturing of Nanostructured Ballistic Alloys

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: A16065

    There is an urgent need to improve protection of our soldiers without losing mobility and maneuverability. As personal protection equipment becomes more sophisticated and multifunctional for protection against ballistics, shrapnel, and stabbing, it has also become heavier and more cumbersome. This additional mass can inhibit troop movement and potentially compromise the mission and even survivabil ...
