  1. Efficient isomer-selective biosynthesis of pinene from cellulosic feedstocks

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N10BT046

    There is a need to find more efficient methods for producing high-density, liquid, tactical fuels for use in missile propulsion or as components to improve key performance characteristics of currently available jet and diesel fuels. Generation of such fuels from renewable sources such as waste cellulose, grasses, waste agricultural material and forestry products will provide important national sec ...

  2. Bioengineering Saccharomyces cerevisiae for the Selective Production of beta-Pinene

    SBC: IMPACT Technology Development            Topic: N10BT046

    This technology development program addresses the market and strategic need for renewable high density fuels for missile propulsion or as additives to increase performance of jet propulsion fuels. beta-Pinene, a natural plant derived organic compound, is the proposed high density fuel precursor. In the Phase 1 project, we will demonstrate the feasibility of this approach by: 1) engineering a strai ...

  3. High Voltage, Lightweight, Conformal, Integrated, Photovoltaic Modules for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: MC10 Inc.            Topic: N10BT048

    This Phase I effort will demonstrate a thin, conformal solar module(1 cm x 1 cm) composed of either GaAs or Si micro-cells packaged in an elastomeric film. This module will utilize unique mechanical designs, including non-planar interconnects, and thin micro-cells (10% efficiency and>10% stretchability while providing output of>25V. This effort will provide a pl ...

  4. Expanding Helicopter Pilots Field of View

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N10BT049

    Night vision has been a key enabling technology for the past 30 years that has allowed US pilots to"own the night". One of the big disadvantages of current night vision systems is that they have not provided pilots with good peripheral vision, since most have a total field of view (TFOV) of only 40 degrees. A large survey of USAF pilots found that the most often requested improvement to night visi ...

  5. Micromechanical Design Tool for Innovative Lightweight Composite Sandwich Structures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N10BT050

    Existing Navy aircraft create significant design challenges because aerodynamics require complex shaped contours, while structural efficiency leads to lightweight, strong composite sandwiches for load bearing components. The structures employ high strength graphite/epoxy face sheets over honeycomb cores. Honeycomb cores, however, are difficult to form into doubly-curved shells and are prone to wat ...

  6. TRIEPOD Tool for Real-time Intelligent Evaluation of Physiological and Operational Data

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N11AT001

    We propose to develop a Tool for Real-time Intelligent Evaluation of Physiological and Operational Data (TRIEPOD), consisting of a self-contained sensor suite and assessment model for analyzing human and system performance. By combining intelligent behavioral and cognitive performance assessment methods with physiological state measures, the TRIEPOD system will not only identify instances of sub-o ...

  7. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N11AT002

    Over-The-Horizon (OTH) radar plays a crucial role in naval situational awareness and the ultimate safety of the naval warfighter and navy assets. Traditionally, OTH detection has been enabled by large land based radars exploiting the interaction of high frequency (HF) radio waves with the ionosphere, but this method is susceptible to instabilities in propagation and the limitations of HF systems. ...

  8. Planar Doppler Velocimetry for Aircraft Exhausts

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: N11AT004

    A diagnostic is proposed for aircraft engine exhausts that provides three velocity components at each point in an image of a slice through the plume. The method measures the Doppler shift of laser light scattered from soot particles naturally present in the exhaust, and may also be useful for measuring non-combustion flows outside the exhaust using naturally occurring environmental aerosols. An im ...

  9. Modeling of pulse propagation in a four level atomic medium for gyroscopic measurements

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC, LLC            Topic: N11AT005

    Precise rotation sensors are critical components for stabilization, navigation, and targeting applications. The most sensitive commercial devices are fiber optic gyroscopes based on the Sagnac effect. There is the potential to enhance the performance of these gyroscopes using media with large positive (''slow light') or negative (''fast light') dispersion. In order to ...

  10. Modeling Tools for the Development of Innovative Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) Local Area Networks (LAN)

    SBC: Ram Photonics LLC            Topic: N11AT008

    Wavelength-division multiplexing has been employed to great success in long-haul transmission systems to increase capacity and provide a new means (wavelength) of routing. Their application to local-area networks (LANs) on aircraft is promising due to the light weight and narrow cross section of optical fiber, as well as fiber"s immunity to EMI. However, the dominant transmission impairments for a ...
