  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Laser-Based Diagnostics for Arc Heated Flows

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF06299

    Arc jet facilities are crucial tools in the development of thermal protection materials for vehicles re-entering Earth’s atmosphere. To ensure that the arc jet tests provide the desired conditions, the state of the test gas in the arc jet facility must be accurately known. Existing instrumentation relies on probes which perturb the flow and which cannot distinguish between the multiple species c ...

  6. Design, Analysis, and Optimization Environment for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF071004

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to develop a directed energy system analysis and design environment. This analysis and design environment will be based upon Distributed Heterogeneous Simulation (DHS) and Distributed Heterogeneous Optimization (DHO) technology. DHS allows the interconnection of models developed in different simulation languages running on different computing platfor ...

  8. Low Temperature Limits for Gas Turbine Engine Oils

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071106

    Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Such low ambient temperatures influence the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the temperature. According to the aforementioned research method, the requirements for accuracy and rel ...

  9. Optimal Design and Prototype Development of Aircraft Generators with Increased Power Density

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF071188

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to investigate design techniques to improve torque density, power density, and efficiency in wound-rotor synchronous machines. The underlying principle of the proposed design technique is to alter the flux paths in the machine to increase torque production. This will be achieved through optimally altering the stator tooth geometry, rotor tooth geomet ...
