  1. Electrical Power from Thermal Energy Scavenging in High Temperature Environments

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T3

    Physical Sciences Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a novel approach to scavenging heat from high intensity thermal environments encountered during space missions and converting this thermal power to electrical power at high efficiency.  Examples include extremely hot heat shields during vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres (Mars/Venus probes) and during high speed ascent thro ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL TRANSMISSION FOR HELICOPTER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: A16018

    US Army utilizes a wide range of vehicles across ground and air platforms where mechanical transmissions are used to transmit power from the engine to the drive shaft. Gears are used to create a torque and speed conversion with mechanical contact between the gear teeth surfaces. Lubrication is necessary to create a protective film between rolling and sliding surfaces as well as provide sufficient ...

  3. Signal Processing at Radio Frequency (RF) for Position Navigation & Timing Co-Site Interference

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: A17039

    Numerous operations in an increasingly congested electromagnetic spectrum, intensify demand for data at the tactical edge, and the diminishing extent of electromagnetic spectrum provisioned for the military has resulted in the need for advanced technologies to mitigate Global Positioning System (GPS) interference due to co-site interference and C4ISR. Metamagnetics proposes a powerful and adaptabl ...

  4. CMOS Compatible Deposition of Multi-Ferroic Films for Tunable Microwave Applications

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: A17019

    Built upon the progress in Phase I period, Winchester Technologies, LLC proposes to investigate practical magnetoelectric antennas during the Phase II period for different applications. State of the art antennas suffer from three major open challenges: (1) large antenna size, (2) antenna impedance mismatch; (3) ground plane effect. This is because state of the art antennas are based on oscillating ...

  5. Vascularized Tissue Construction Using Specialized 3D Bioprinting Techniques

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A17068

    Tissue engineering technology is of particular import to the Army for the matter of producing tissue replacements for the repair and regeneration of various organ systems (liver, heart, muscle, lung, etc.) for wounded patients. Unfortunately, the production of masses of tissue with thicknesses greater than ~1 mm presents a challenge due to diffusion limits of nutrients into the tissue and waste ou ...

  6. Biologically-Derived Targeted Antifungals for Textile Applications

    SBC: Antimicrobial Materials, Inc.            Topic: A17018

    Fungal skin infections plague active duty servicemembers at elevated rates due to exposure to warm, humid climates, poor skin hygiene, and close-quarters living arrangements. We have developed a novel solution that incorporates an endophytic fungal extract with selective activity against Trichophyton species of pathogens. In addition, the selected compound has negligible impact on the organisms th ...

  7. FTL's FASCI, Forward Area Suspended Contaminant Identifier, Field Instrumentation to measure, quantify, and characterize fuel contaminants

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: A17116

    To avoid machine failure, diesel engine hardware manufacturers recommend limiting fuel contamination particles based on number and size distribution. Work performed by TARDEC has developed limits for particulate and free water contamination in fuel utilizing light obscuration particle counting; however, this approach is unable to differentiate between solid particulates, free water droplets, and a ...

  8. Monolithic high-power QCL-based photonic integrated circuits for two-dimensional beam steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182109

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to demonstrate a mid-infrared 2-dimensional beam-steering photonic integrated circuit (PIC) with a passive InGaAs/InP platform where high performance mid infrared quantum cascade laser sources, low-loss InGaAs waveguides, and beam steering photonic elements are monolithically integrated. Low mid-infrared opt ...
