  1. Modeling of Lithium-Ion Cell Performance

    SBC: GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY CONNECTION, INC.            Topic: MDA10T004

    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with academic partners, Georgia Tech"s Center for Innovative Battery and Fuel Cell Technologies, Penn State University, and industrial partner Eagle Picher propose to create a physics-based modeling for predicting the life performance of Low and Middle Earth Orbit (LEO/MEO) Lithium-ion cells. The relationships between solid-electrolyte interpha ...

  2. High-Speed Three-Channel Photonic Time Delay Unit

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative, super-miniature, fast-switching array-based photonic time delay device is being developed for the active electronically scanned-array (AESA) MDA and Navy radars. The design is based on the fast electro-optic effect, the super miniature fiber-lens collimation array, and the existing WDM photonic true time delay technologies. In Phase I Agiltron has successfully demonstrated the core ...

  3. High Power, Modulation Doped AlGaN/GaN FETs

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Two major opportunities are outlined in the proposed Phase II work. The first opportunity is the demonstration of doped ZnO bulk crystal growth with specific electrical properties. The second opportunity is the growth of nitride heterostructures on thesesubstrates. High quality, doped ZnO bulk substrates of 50mm diameter will be made possible with Cermet's proven crystal growth technology. The gro ...

  5. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Programs such as Airborne Laser and Space-Based Laser are in need of highly mass efficient structural materials to achieve system performance targets. This naturally leads to graphite fiber reinforced polymers for many system components. For someapplications, such as cryogen storage vessels, these materials are subject to micro cracking under little or no structural loading. New materials with ...

  6. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: Golden Helix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a prototype suite of recursive partitioning (RP) methodologies to provide advanced warning of failure, malfunction and/or performance degradation for Airborne Laser Program subsystems in service. Through better monitoring and analysisof the status of its systems, prediction of equipment life remaining can be made and corrective action taken to enhance the availability of the ...

  7. Development of HgCdTe Material Models for Next Generation Infrared Focal Plane Architectures

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Developments of multi-color FPA's are important for use in missile defense systems (such as GMD and THAAD) applications. Key to meeting these system requirements is development of multi-color HgCdTe focal plane arrays with high pixel uniformity, reducedreadout noise, improved resolution, and higher temperature of operation, to reduce cost and volume of these sensors and seekers.Magnolia Optical Te ...

  8. Data Driven Damage Diagnosis and Prognosis

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is aimed at demonstrating the applicability of a method for data-based, online, real-time monitoring of machine health state and predicting imminent failures. The data driven prognostic system will be based on a new, general state-space basedapproach to parameter tracking in dynamical systems. This method is applicable to systems where the parameters drift at a slower rate than the o ...

  9. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The team of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Ohio State University (OSU) proposes to develop and test a novel method for electrical production of singlet molecular oxygen for application to an atomic iodine transfer laser. OSU has developed a supersonic,low pressure discharge and applied it to flows of nitrogen with efficient excitation of the gas. They propose to use this method that tailors th ...

  10. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: STAR            Topic: N/A

    Maintenance prognostics is concerned with the prediction of an abnormal operation (fault) within a system's component. The fault can be due to a breakdown of a part within the component, lack of syncronization internally or with other components, and soforth. Furthermore, being notified that a failure will occur when it is too late to prevent the failure is generally not of value. Thus, a progn ...
