  1. Manufacturing Issues for Multimode Seeker Domes

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A07016

    The U.S. Army's Joint Air to Ground Missile (JAGM) and the Air Force Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) are two potential candidates for insertion of multi-mode seeker missiles technology. Surmet has recently demonstrated proof-of-principle multilayer missile domes for these seekers. But technical challenges remain in scaling the processes to manufacturing level. The amount of touch labor, reproducibility ...

  2. MEMS Enhanced Laser Spectrometer for Ultra-sensitive Toxic Chemical Detection

    SBC: Block Mems, LLC            Topic: A07135

    The Joint Services is seeking a miniaturized, low cost sensor for detection and identification of CWAs and TICs. To meet this requirement Block MEMS has very successfully completed a Phase I effort to develop a widely tunable MEMS enhanced Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) spectrometer called LaserChemTM. LaserChemTM will have sensitivity in the parts per trillion, be under 1800 cm3 in size, have very l ...

  3. A Noninvasive Sensor/Control Suite for Health Monitoring and Extended Life of Aircraft Generation Systems

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: N06T007

    Catastrophic failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. In this effort, a multi-physics suite of tools will be developed based upon the successful Phase I research to provide a comprehensive prognostics and health management system (PHM) for aircraft generators and associated electrical systems. The PHM will be based upo ...

  4. Organic Photovoltaics--Flexible Light Weight Multi-junction Cells Based on Polymer/fullerene Active Layers

    SBC: KONARKA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071133

    In Phase I, we are examining materials that can be used to make tandem cells, with formulations that can be used on the process development coating machine. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of tandem modules with 6% efficiency. Phase II will begin mid-May 2008 with the goal of reproducible, 7% efficiency, tandem-cell module prototypes made on our coater/printer machines. These prototypes ...

  5. ESPA On-orbit Maneuvering System (OMS)

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF071284

    Busek Co. Inc. is developing a Multi-Mode Orbit Maneuvering System (MMOMS) that can be added to ESPA ring, transforming it into a free-flying spacecraft that can deliver payloads to multiple orbits. In Phase I, we proved the feasibility of the concept and defined the architecture. The MMOMS has three sub-assemblies: The ESPA ring; the ESPA Propulsion Module (EPM), and the Power and Avionics Modu ...

  6. High-Power VECSELs with Good Beam Quality

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: OSD05D03

    Science Research Laboratory (SRL) proposes to develop an optically pumped high-efficiency, good-beam-quality vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting laser (VECSEL) that is scalable to multi-kilowatt power levels. Unlike the more conventional edge-emitting diode lasers, VECSELs are characterized by (1) a small gain-medium thickness (~1 micron) along the laser-propagation direction; (2) the potent ...

  8. Motor Insulation Material Development for Improved Power Density

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N06142

    The application of reliable, long life electrical machinery in the All Electric Navy is critical for the success of future naval warfare. Development of a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) inverter fed Permanent Magnet (PM) motor for the DD(X) shipboard propulsion illustrates future trends for large 20 MW, 2000 V, PWM Machines of 310 Tons. Challenges remain with regard to the insulation systems for t ...

  9. High Performance Uncooled Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: A06121

    Science Research Laboratory (SRL) proposes to develop a novel uncooled thermal-to-visible transducer (TVT) that will revolutionize long-wavelength-infrared (LWIR) imaging. The technology utilizes as a sensor a Fabry-Perot interferometer that is heated by absorbing LWIR radiation, which changes its reflectivity in the visible. Reflected light, imaged onto a CCD or CMOS array, provides an image of ...

  10. Facility Identification via Networks with Adaptive Links- FINAL

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N07102

    Repetitive crimes, such as the production of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or the supplying of illegal drugs, present a growing challenge to society. Physical structures that can support these crimes provide potentially important invariants. The crimes must be situated somewhere, and the physical structures present in any given location change slowly. Knowledge of those structures and their ...
