  1. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  2. DIPAIN-Based Handheld Assay for the Detection of T-2 Toxin in Water Using a Handheld Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10AT021

    A rapid assay for the detection of T2 trichothecene mycotoxin in water is proposed that will use ANP Technology, Inc.'s established handheld reader and rapid acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor test ticket format. Dipain-II and other candidate Dipain derivatives will be immobilized on cellulose and other solid supports mounted as discs in wells on the existing test ticket, similar to the AChE i ...

  3. Ultrafast Hybrid Active Materials and Devices for Compact RF Photonics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT25

    Optical components for RF-photonic applications such as communication satellites, avionics, optical networks, sensors and phase array radar will require high speed, high capacity and low power. Due to the nature of crystalline electro-optic materials (LiNbO3, GaAs, InP, etc.) today’s commercial electro-optical devices do not perform well above 40 GHz. This limitation can be circumvented by utili ...

  4. Silicon-Based Nanomembrane Photonic and Electronic Components

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF08BT08

    This proposal deals with advanced design architectures for realizing silicon-based reconfigurable and stackable photonic analog signal processing engines supported on flexible or flat substrates using crystalline Si-based nanomembrane technology. Silicon nanomembranes are single crystals of Si that have been released from SOI substrates and redeposited on foreign flexible or flat substrates enabli ...

  5. Accelerated Linear Algebra Solvers for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT18

    Many large-scale numerical simulations can be broken down into common mathematical routines. While the applications may differ, they often need to perform standard functions such as system solves, Fourier transforms, or eigenvalue calculations. Consequently, producing fast, efficient implementations of these methods will benefit a broad range of Air Force applications. Graphics Processing Units (G ...

  7. AHigh Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    Internal combustion engines with power-to-weight ratios significantly higher than 1 Hp/lb which operate on low flash point fuels are enabling for powering Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Conventional Otto, Diesel and Wankel cycle engines even if constructed in advanced light-weight materials cannot meet the required power-to-weight and volume ratios and have high cost. A breakthrough in engine de ...

  8. A Plasma Process to Apply Refractory Metal Coatings to Continuous Lengths of Copper Alloy Rails

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT025

    High strength copper alloys are preferred as the base rails for railguns due to their combination of strength and electrical and thermal conductivity, but suffer damage due to high current densities, arcing, gouging, and exposure to molten aluminum armatures. A refractory metal/alloy coating on the copper base alloy is an attractive approach for increasing rail life if the refractory metal coating ...

  9. Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: N10AT037

    The Team of M-DOT Aerospace and University of Texas, Arlington propose to analyze, construct and test a 40 mm foil thrust bearing featuring a unique bump foil concept and top-foil profile designed by Dr. Daejong Kim. The design is simple, affording low production cost in high quantity. The design can be adapted for use on small gas turbines, small turbochargers and any small rotating machine that ...

  10. Optical Cooling of RF systems using an All Optical Fiber Approach

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT017

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as high-power RF amplifiers. In our approach, the cooling fiber segment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NP Photonics' high efficiency thulium-doped fiber lasers are used to pump high purity thulium-doped glass fibers, which provide the ...
