  2. TCDL MIMOnizerEmpowering TCDL with MIMO Functionality

    SBC: EpiSys Science, Inc.            Topic: AF173003

    Towards the goal of enabling MIMO capabilities for TCDL radios while maintaining full backward compatibility, we propose the design, development and demonstration of TCDL MIMOnizer, a new appliqu aimed to empower TCDL modems with MIMO capabilities with minimum hardware modifications to the legacy radio such as smart low-lost bolt-on module or smart add-on antenna. In onedesign scenario, the MIMOni ...

  4. Nonflammable Battery

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF173005

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will demonstrate a non-flammable, high power rechargeable battery design capable of 20C discharge rates after activation from an inert, inactive state. This battery will be constructed by combining PSIs non-flammable electrolyte and high active (HA) coating technologies. During the Phase I, PSI will demonstrate that the electrolyte is non-flammable both as an aerosol a ...

  5. Additively Manufactured Fractal Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF173006

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop an innovative refrigeration condenser for airborne applications based on PSIs established fractal heat exchanger geometry. This configuration is 60% smaller and 20% lighter than comparable heat exchangers because it uses a branched feed network instead of pipe headers (the heaviest parts of existing heat exchangers).Test articles will be produced with a vo ...
