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

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: N10BT048

    MicroLink proposes a novel device structure which combines ultra-thin, high-efficiency, GaAs-based multijunction solar cells with a novel packaging approach that will result in high flexibility, elastic solar sheets. MicroLink has developed a process that produces ultra-thin, flexible solar cells. In this project, these an array of these flexible solar cells will be incorporated onto an elastic sh ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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. ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. High Fidelity Helicopter Lag Damper Model for Comprehensive Rotor Analysis


    This research is dedicated to developing high fidelity lag damper models to significantly improve the accuracy of the analysis of the rotor lead-lag damper forces over a wide range of blade lead-lag motion amplitudes, temperatures, and frequencies in support of aircraft design and engineering applications. The model development will emphasize the dampers with various configurations (e.g., linear ...

  9. Compact, Broadband Geolocation Systems

    SBC: QUASAR FEDERAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N11AT012

    Existing technologies for geolocation of RF emitters have significant size and weight limitations, restricting their use on small UAV platforms. Quasar Federal Systems (QFS) has developed a method of geolocation using very small antennas; this method is based on measurement of the Poynting vector. The QFS antenna is isotropic, compact, and accurate in its direction finding performance. However, du ...

  10. Lightweight, HybridSil Nanocomposites for Ballistic, Blast and Flame Protection to MTVR Fuel Tanks and Engine Components

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N11AT013

    The objective of this Phase I STTR program is to develop and qualify innovative lightweight, high temperature composite materials that provide ballistic, blast and flame protection to MTVR fuel tanks and engine compartment structures. NanoSonic will work closely with Virginia Tech to simulate the conditions encountered during an IED blast and implement this information for Phase I material develop ...
