  1. T/R Module Board Cooled With Thin-Film Evaporators

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a superior thermal management system for high-power radar T/R modules at the Lower Replaceable Unit or LRU board level. We will incorporate evaporators into a new LRU board such that an evaporator is adjacent to each T/R module. Ourunique and proprietary thin-film evaporators remove large amounts of heat via ultra thin-film evaporation of a working fluid. After evaporation ...

  2. Innovative Two-Phase Heat Spreader For X-Band T/R Modules

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a T/R module housing that incorporates two-phase thin-film evaporators adjacent to each T/R module in order to increase greatly the lateral spreading within the housing. Our unique thin-film evaporators remove large amounts of heatvia ultra thin-film evaporation of a working fluid. After evaporation, the fluid's vapors pass through a semi-permeable membrane and condense on ...

  3. Wideband Radar Digital Beamforming for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phased-array radar employing wideband digital beamforming (DBF) offers the potential for detecting and tracking incoming cruise missiles while defeating electronic countermeasures such as chaff, jamming and anti-reflective coatings. A wide instantaneousradar bandwidth is essential for defeating these threats, resulting in improved range resolution and target signature. Digital beamforming may be u ...

  4. Systematic Study of the Growth and Processing of ZnTe and GaP Crytals for THz Detection


    Terahertz radiation is an ideal candidate for non-invasive interrogation of concealed objects and substances. As such, there is an increased need for reliable high-quality nonlinear materials for the generation and detection of THz radiation. Zinc telluride (ZnTe) and gallium phosphide (GaP) are the materials of choice for this purpose. However, the performance of these materials varies widely fro ...

  5. Construction and Testing of a Spar Feeding System for an Offshore Aquaculture Farm

    SBC: Cates International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase 1 project proposes to design, construct, and test and evaluate a spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. To minimize the labor costs for operations in a remote location, remote feeding systems are needed so that feeding of the fish can take place even if the farmer is unable to get to the site. Cates International, inc. has developed a feeding sys ...

  6. Advanced Regenerators for Cryocoolers

    SBC: Chesapeake Cryogenics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phase II will demonstrate the predicted performance improvements in stirling and Gifford-McMahon cryocoolers utilizing a modified parallel plate geometry in the regenerator. This will be accomplished by performing a series of tests in which the dimensionsof the regenerative matrix are varied about the design point to experimentally maximize the cryocooler coefficient of performance. The technique ...

  7. Model-Based Specification and Testing for Rapid Software Transition

    SBC: COGNITIVE CONCEPTS            Topic: N/A

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) faces a problem that's common to all complex military systems and to many commercial applications as well. The time and effort it takes to integrate software functionality into a system and verify correct operation can beoverwhelming and, in some cases, cost prohibitive. Thus, projects seek a process or method to effectively, efficiently and rapidly implement and ...

  9. Development of a PC-Based Ship Maneuvering Simulator for Improving Navigation Traffic Within Ports and Harbors

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 8410

    The potential for accidents in harbors increases with traffic density. Collisions with other ships or natural obstacles are caused by incorrect controls manipulation by the master in response to some unexpected situation, especially when in a new environment. Continual training for various critical situations on simulators that include realistic topography and the presence of other maneuvering ve ...

  10. Miniature Software for Pervasive Computing Applications

    SBC: Embedded Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Miniature Software is a new software engineering technology that addresses the many challenges in building real-time code for large pervasive computing applications. These applications will have dozens to thousands of very small processing nodes embeddedinto everything, including within both solid objects and liquid, or attached to any other medium for which sensory information or command and cont ...
