  2. Lithium Ion / Super Capacitor Hybrid System

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    A scalable hybrid lithium ion battery / super capacitor energy storage device is developed and the technology is matured such that the system reduces battery cell stress, improves temperature range, and increases effective battery lifetime and safety. This is an enabling technology that allows the use of very high energy batteries in applications that would otherwise be unsuitable for them.

  3. Adaptive Energy Absorbing Buffer for Reduced Wave Slam Energy

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: N17AT014

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel passively adaptive shock and vibration isolating buffer system for the US Navys combatant craft. The proposed approach does not rely on conventional passive, semi-active or active spring-damper systems. The buffer system will provide energy damping via a liquid spring buffer and eddy current d ...

  4. Reduced Cost, Repeatable, Improved Property Washout Tooling for Composite Fabrication

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: N16AT015

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-Aero(sm) toolinglightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures to 370C (700F). Tools, whether single-sided or washout, have a composite-compatible CTE, provide tight tolerances, are reproducible, are stable to storage under ambient conditions, and are of affordable cost. ...

  6. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  8. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  9. Lithium Ion / Super Capacitor Hybrid System

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    A hybrid lithium ion battery / super capacitor energy storage device is developed that uses the high power capability of the super capacitor to satisfy pulsed power load requirements such that stress on the lithium ion batteries is reduced. This results in extended discharge time and higher efficiency utilization of the battery stack.
