  1. Advanced Reserve Battery Technologies

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA15021

    There is an ever-growing need for increased battery performance in weight-sensitive and volume-constrained applications. Also needed is the ability to develop batteries with non-standard form factors to accommodate tight size constraints. Erigo and our collaborators at EaglePicher Technologies propose to develop a thermal battery by leveraging advances in cathode formulations, fabrication techni ...

  2. Lithium Oxyhalide Battery Separator Material

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA15027

    eSpin Technologies will design the scale up machine to produce novel high performance separator for lithium primary batteries. The process will be developed to produce novel separator and a variants which has the potential of a significantly higher volumetric efficiency for electrolyte storage capacity and kinetics to distribute electrolyte flow within nanoporous channel efficiently. This new sep ...

  3. UCDS Propulsion Modeling

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: MDA09T009

    History has repeatedly shown that combustion instability is the greatest technical risk faced in any chemical propulsion development program, with some form of pressure oscillations experienced in practically every engine development effort. The costs to mitigate combustion instability can be extremely large due the need to rely upon hardware intensive build and test efforts. This combination of ...

  4. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  5. Plasma Limiter: RF Mitigation Device for Operation in Stressing Environments

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: MDA03096

    The widespread use of communication devices and radar systems has made our society increasingly vulnerable to disruptive, high-power, short pulse electromagnetic interference (EMI) and high power microwaves (HPM). Significant advances in devices that produce these high-power, short pulses have been made in the US and abroad in the past few decades. As a result, the need for devices that can protec ...

  6. Innovative Manufacturing Process Improvements

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA04035

    The projected cost for the Mentis Sciences, Inc., (MSI) prototype PAC3 radome is 1/6th of the total cost of the present system. A Pareto analysis of the current MSI process indicates that the two largest costs in radome production are the direct labor associated with fabrication and the cost of the raw materials. In Phase I MSI demonstrated that COTS paint spraying technology reduced the direct ...

  7. Holographic Beam Shaping for Master Oscillator Power Amplifiers (MOPA)

    SBC: Northeast Photosciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and demonstrate beam cleanup for the Master Oscillator (MO) which will allow the Power Amplifier (PA) to operate efficiently and produce a high energy beam useful as a Directed Energy Weapon (DEW). The method we describe is totally new to the DEW field. Of course for low power lasers, we can focus the beam down and pass the clean part through a pinhole spatial filter. The "noi ...

  8. MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT FOR PULSED CONDUCTORS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP MATERIALS AND SUPPORTING THERMAL TECHNOLOGY LEADING TO DESIGN OF HIGH POWER PULSE CONDUCTORS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS. IN PHSE I WE WILL EVALUATE AN EM GUN SYSTEM, IDENTIFY ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS AND THERMAL APPROACHES FOR SELECTED COMPONENTS, AND IDENTIFY TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS. COMPONENT DEVELOPMENT FEASIBILITY AND BENEFITS WILL BE DEFINED.

  9. WET TURBOEXPANDER FOR CRYOCOOLERS OF SPACEBORNE SURVEILLANCE SENSORS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED FOR INCREASING THE SENSITIVITY OF SPACE-BORNE SENSORS WILL REQUIRE DEVELOPMENT OF LONG-LIFE, HIGHLY EFFICIENT HELIUM LIQUIFIERS. CONVENTIONAL HELIUM LIQUIFIERS EMPLOY A JOULE-THOMSON EXPANSION VALVE TO EXPAND THE HELIUM AT TEMPERATURES BELOW ABOUT 10 DEG K. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT GAINS OF UP TO 30% IN OVERALL CYCLE EFFICIENCY CAN BE OBTAINED IF THE JOULE-THOMSON VALVE IS REPLACED BY AN EX ...

  10. Reliable Electronics for Space Turbo-Brayton Cryocoolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA04078

    Our overall objective is to improve the performance of turbo-Brayton space cryocoolers by reducing mass and increasing reliability in high-radiation environments. To achieve this objective, we will develop and demonstrate advanced cryocooler compressor drive and control electronics suitable for high radiation space applications. Our technical objectives are to: (1) incorporate components which ...
