  1. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity nor having direct contact with the propellant. In Phase II, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging pr ...

  2. Deep Inference and Fusion Framework Utilizing Supporting Evidence (DIFFUSE)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...

  3. Data Driven Prognostics (Hybrid Nano-scale/Microscale Composites for Deep Thermal Cycle Damage Resistance)

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03T001

    Programs such as Airborne Laser and Space-Based Laser require highly mass efficient structures. Because of their high specific strength and stiffness this naturally leads to graphite fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) materials for many system components. In fluid storage tank applications GFRP laminates often develop microcracking when subject to cryogenic temperatures and/or stresses due to press ...

  4. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA03T004

    The team of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Ohio State University (OSU) proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel electrically generated singlet oxygen to atomic iodine laser. In Phase I we developed and demonstrated a novel discharge method for production of singlet molecular oxygen and completed a design for a supersonic transfer laser. In Phase II we propose to extend this work to develop ...

  5. Data Driven Damage Diagnosis and Prognosis

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: MDA03T001

    This Phase II proposal focuses on the development of a data-driven, integrated damage diagnosis and prognosis technology to enable on-line, accurate and useful failure predictions for ABL systems. The developed software system will utilize the advanced nonlinear dynamics based signal analysis and dynamics reconstruction methods to identify active damage modes, track their evolution, develop approp ...

  6. Superior and Affordable Infrared Windows for High-Speed Missiles

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    During this Phase II STTR, Foster-Miller will develop Yttria-Alumina-Garnet (YAG) IR windows made by our innovative process and establish a property database to confirm the potential for cost-effectiveness and superior optical and mechanical properties compared to current materials. This YAG is made from a single crystal YAG preform and hot pressed to >99 percent density. Windows made during Ph ...

  7. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    The terahertz wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum offers exciting and unique attributes for security imaging and secure broadband communications. However, THz signal generation is difficult and current applications are rare. Existing THz sources utilize large and expensive lasers operating in pulsed mode. Practical application of THz radiation requires the development of THz source techn ...

  8. Low Expansion Metallic Nanolaminate Replicated Mirrors with CTE Matched High Conductivity Graphite Fiber Reinforced Magnesium Mirror Substrate Structu


    Magnetron sputtering of "Invar-like" nanolaminates onto a pre-finished/figured mandrel is proposed to produce strong, stiff, damage tolerant, low CTE replicas. The structural substrate will be a high performance discontinuous graphite fiber reinforced Mg AZ31 metal matrix composite manufactured by pressure infiltration casting. MetGraf Mg composites have the following attractive attributes for s ...

  9. Radiation-Hard, High Efficiency InP/InN Tandem Cells

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: MDA04T017

    Spire proposes to investigate InP/InN tandem solar cells for applications where extreme radiation-hardness is needed. Indium phosphide (InP) has proven itself as a radiation-hard cell material, and indium nitride (InN) has shown superior radiation resistance to 2MeV protons. InP (1.34 eV) and InN (0.7eV) bandgaps allow current-matching (38 mA/cm2) under the AM0 spectrum, enabling two-terminal ope ...

  10. Stratospheric Electrical Environments Applicable To Photovoltaic Arrays On HAA Platforms

    SBC: LIGHTNING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04T008

    The objective of this program is to characterize the upper atmosphere electrical environment so that the effects of this environment on high altitude airships (HAA) and other platforms intending to operate in this environment can be determined, and protection methods developed. This includes transient luminous events (TLEs), such as red sprites and blue jets and their associated electrical propert ...
