  1. A Reconfigurable Machining Center for Depot Productivity Enhancement

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161019

    Current depot-level manufacturing systems are not responsive to changing requirements and flexible specifications. The serial arrangement of individual work cells results in a lengthy timeline to complete the critically-needed part; thus, critical assets

  2. Flight Head and Hearing Protection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172120

    Upgrades to the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye inadvertently resulted in higher acoustic loading at its propellers blade pass frequency (BPF). This frequency overlaps with vibrational modes of the standard fixed-wing aircrew helmet, the HGU-68/P. As a combined result, E-2D pilots are experiencing exceptionally large vibrational and acoustic (noise) loading, potentially compromising aircrew performance and ...

  3. High Productivity Low Noise Abrasive Blast Nozzle

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172134

    Navy vessels, along with other military, civil, and commercial equipment and structures, are routinely stripped by abrasive blasting in preparation for re-coating. Using existing nozzles, blasting generates continuous noise levels up to 145 dBA, and even with correctly worn double hearing protection, blasting operators are at risk of hearing damage. Noise induced hearing loss has become the most c ...

  4. Printable Materials with Embedded Electronics and Radio Frequency Components

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space. In fact, to accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components. For radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems, this will requ ...

  5. Integrable High-Performance Analog Optical Modulators

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF171126

    In this SBIR effort we will develop broadband, low V, high linearity, thin-film lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators that are fully compatible with silicon photonic integrated circuits (PIC) foundry processes. Developing such devices as well a

  6. Freeze Casting of Tubular Sulfur Tolerant Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Millennitek, LLC            Topic: A14AT011

    Solid oxide fuel cells have long suffered from degradation due to impurities in the fuel and complexities associated with dissimilar materials and high operating temperatures.This degradation lowers the usable cell power output and requires ancillary equipment for fuel sulfur removal and reformation.A unique microstructure for the tubular anode will be produced using a novel freeze-casting techniq ...

  7. Antimony-based LWIR detectors with low dark current and high quantum efficiency

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: AF171078

    QmagiQ, LLC proposes to fabricate and deliver for evaluation a number of small-format focal plane arrays (FPAs) of antimony-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes with longwave infrared (LWIR) cutoff wavelengths ranging from 9 microns to 13 m

  8. Reduction/Elimination of Unsteady Aerodynamic Loads on Model and Balance Support Systems in Large Scale Wind Tunnels

    SBC: FICS, LLC            Topic: AF171008

    Wind tunnel testing of high performance aerodynamic systems, including force and moment measurements (of larger models), often involve unsteady oscillatory loads which may damage the expensive balance and would also normally impact the data accuracy and a

  9. Plasma Gasification System for Waste-to-Energy Conversion

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N152097

    Responsible waste disposal has become an important challenge as the world population has grown, concern about the environment has increased, and energy costs have risen. Landfills are unsustainable and have potential to contaminate groundwater, while incineration consumes fuel and can produce hazardous airborne emissions. In response, we are developing a plasma gasification system that will enable ...

  10. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...
