  5. Micro Reactor Synthesis of Energetic Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Current production of AF-M315E relies on foreign sourced materials. It also includes a nitration step to make HEHN from HEH which is currently done in a slow batch process. This program will build a microreactor to continuously produce HEHN, reducing the total time spent on the nitration process from weeks to days. This program will also scale up the electrolytic cell built in the Phase I program ...

  7. Secure Cockpit-to-Ground Wireless Data Transfer

    SBC: Ionotronics Corporation            Topic: AF183013

    Current communication between a Fighter Pilots Helmet and the Cockpit is through a sophisticated cable. The requirements for the Helmet Heads Up Display and Video/Audio feed require Giga bps throughput. In this Phase I effort, a millimeter wave wireless system will be designed that supports end to end Gigabit Ethernet through a wireless link with the potential for 3.4 Gbps throughput. The proposed ...

  8. High-Temperature Materials and Components for Pressure Gain Combustion

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: AF183039

    Conventional air-breathing engines are currently based on deflagration, but these engines are limited in further progress due to the already high, but limited, efficiency of this thermodynamic cycle. However, due to the thermodynamic differences between detonation and deflagration, a shift in the focus of research has gone towards detonation engines. The release of heat in detonation is much faste ...
