  1. Buffet Control of the F-22 Using an Enhanced Distributed Actuation System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unsteady buffet forces excite the vertical tails of aircraft flying at high angles of attack and cause excessive stress and vibration in the tail structure. This results in increased fatigue which ultimately reduces aircraft life. It has been shown by ACX that distributed piezoceramics can significantly reduce the buffet loads on the tail structure of an F/A-18. ACX proposes to develop a simila ...

  2. High Performance Piezoceramic Coatings for Ultrasound Applications

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an innovative new process for the manufacture of smart structures using a High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray process. This simple, multi-step process will be capable of depositing electroded piezoceramic coatings. The coatings will be poled while still hot, reducing poling times and voltages while increasing poling efficiency. Process times will be extremely short. The pr ...

  3. Advanced Conformal Piezoceramic Actuators

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes to develop durable and reliable conformal geometry actuator packages. These packages will have the ability to operate as linear actuators for motion control applications as well as to conform to structures with curved surfaces for applications requiring induced strain actuation. These packages provide a protective skin offering electrical isolation, and provide a means for integration ...

  5. Compact Piezoelectric Based Power Generation

    SBC: Active Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Devices proposes an innovation for energy harvesting using piezoelectric based approaches to extract energy from mechanical vibrations. This innovation consists of a piezoelectric element for energy transduction, rectifier circuits for extraction, and storage devices to store power for use by other devices. Ideal models predict that a 1" x1" x.010" piezoelectric wafer undergoing moderate ...

  6. Phased Array Antenna on a Wafer

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The ongoing explosion of microwave radar and communications systems calls for improvement in electronically scanned antennas (ESAs). However, current ESAs crafted from multiple individual elements are extremely expensive. Forming an antenna with integrated scanning and impedance matching elements on a single substrate using thin film technologies may decrease costs by up to two orders of magnitu ...

  7. High Temperature III-V Nitride RF Electronics

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The III-V nitrides, (Al, In, Ga)N, are promising materials for high temperature, high power and high frequency devices due to the wide bandgaps, high electron saturation velocity and high electronic mobility transistor (HEMT) structures available in this alloy system. These devices would find wide-spread commercial use as power amplifiers in base station transmitters for personal communications ...

  8. Blue-Green LED Arrays for Scanned Linear Array Imaging

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Virtual displays have tremendous potential in defense applications such as virtual reality training, battlefield support, and information systems. Full color displays require red, blue, and green LED arrays of which only red is commercially available. This program teams ATMI, a recognized leader in the GaN growth community, with Reflection Technology, a leader in virtual display technology. ATMI w ...

  9. High Dielectric MOSFET Oxides on SiC

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Increasing thermal and power loads in circuitry demand electrical components which can operate at temperatures up to 400 C and beyond . A combination of high bandgap semiconductors and improved dielectrics is needed to solve this problem. ATMI has maj or programs in production of both SiC/GaN semiconductor materials and high dielectric constant complex oxide thin films, in particular barium stront ...

  10. Edge-emitting Nitride-based Bragg Reflector Lasers

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    In this program we will develop narrow linewidth AlGaN Bragg reflector lasers suitable as injection seeds for solid-state W lasers in the range of 280 to 330 nm. These systems are compact, light weight, and low-power consuming and ideal for airborne lidar systems. Bragg reflector lasers have never been fabricated in the nitrides so in this Phase I program we will develop the technologies necessary ...
