  2. Thermoelectric material-coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT22

    The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...

  3. A Novel Nanomaterial-enabled Hybrid Power System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP2

    Developments in micro/nano technologies are leading the way to a new fleet of micro air vehicle (MAV) airframes. However, the unavoidable and ultimately the mission-limiting issue for all of these new systems will be on-board power. The lightest-weight current lithium-polymer batteries don’t provide sufficient energy densities and impose a variety of operational limitations that are unacceptab ...

  4. Nanomaterial Technologies for Long-Life Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093065

    Lithium-ion batteries have become the industry standard for use as rechargeable secondary batteries in space vehicles. Although substantial advancements have made in this class of batteries of late, substantial limitations still exist in: energy and power densities, operational temperature limits, safety, and most importantly lifecycle and lifetime performance. To address this need, ADA Technolo ...

  5. Multi-Functional High Energy, High Power Lithium-Polymer Batteries for MAVs

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093098

    Micro air vehicles (MAV) are envisioned to play a substantial role in carrying out critical missions for the Nation’s future military force. However due to their small size, deficiencies in critical technologies may limit the operational performance of future MAVs. Arguably, on-board power may be the most mission-limiting issue facing future MAVs. To address this need, ADA Technologies, Inc. ...

  6. Improved Performance of Morphing Shape Memory Polymer Skins

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093127

    Morphing air vehicles are characterized by an ability to dramatically alter their airfoil characteristics to maintain optimal aerodynamic efficiency over a broad flight regime thereby broadening their mission profile over an equivalent fixed-wing vehicle. Essential to enabling these vehicles is a wing skin that is highly compliant in-plane for wing morphing while being highly stiff out-of-plane to ...

  7. Modeling and Simulation for Robust Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: ALTASIM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF081038

    Increasing the power density of current jet aircraft engines requires the replacement of conventional high temperature materials by new materials capable of operating at higher temperatures. Ceramics and ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) represent excellent candidates for increased use in hot engine parts due to their ability to withstand temperatures in excess of 2000 C. Due to the complexity of t ...

  8. Terahertz Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF09BT33

    Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...

  9. New Laser Eye Protection (LEP) Technology for Visors

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF083013

    Laser eye protection is important due to the availability of laser sources (continuous and pulsed) over a broad range of wavelengths. The military uses many laser systems (e.g., training devices, range finders, target designators, communications devices) that emit potentially eye damaging radiation. Because personnel risk exposure to these devices, a growing need exists for eye protection at a va ...

  10. Measurement of laser irradiance on target for directed energy weapons

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF093009

    The Laser Irradiance Measurement on Target (LIMT) project will provide a sensor mesh for direct, on-target measurement of laser beam characteristics of interest (e.g., irradiance level, beam size, time history of beam shape). Activities during Phase 1 of this project include identification and prioritization of requirements; design of system and subsystem components; evaluation of component design ...
