  1. Synthesis of New, Insensitive Energetic Materials

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N11AT034

    Advanced ordnance and propulsion systems utillize materials, such as RDX and HMX, that provide good performance but cannot meet todays more stringent safety and environmental requirements. Unfortunately, in newer compounds created to replace them, the performance falls with the sensitivity. The ORBITEC team proposes the development of new energetic materials that will be both high performance and ...

  2. Monolithic Scalable Mid-Infrared Phase-Locked Laser Array

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N11AT011

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) Design a metal/semiconductor grating-based (i.e., substrate-emitting) Grating-Coupled Surface-Emitting Distributed Feedback Quantum Cascade Laser (GCSE-DFB QCL) emitting at 4.6 microns with high beam quality; and 2) Demonstrate a GCSE-DFB QCL emitting at 4.6 microns with single-lobe-beam operation and high beam quality, under CW operation. It is th ...

  3. Dive Helmet Noise Quieting

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N12AT020

    Helmeted navy divers are exposed to high levels of noise from self-generated mechanisms, such as regulator exhaust, and external sources, such as underwater tool-generated noise. Noise exposure limits can be easily exceeded especially if effective communications through helmet-mounted speakers is required. A multi-faceted approach is proposed to reduce self-generated noise as well as overall helme ...

  4. Plasmonic MEMS Sensor Array

    SBC: Five Stones Research Corporation            Topic: A10aT002

    Sensor development researchers and engineers have perpetually sought novel methods to reduce sensor size and improve performance. Continued miniaturization of sensors through micromachining has enabled novel applications and introduced new paradigms for engineered systems to interact with the world. The challenge has always been to improve performance while continually reducing size. In the curren ...

  5. Safe High Voltage Cathode Materials for Pulsed Power Applications

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: N11AT035

    A high-voltage, high-capacity, inexpensive cathode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is proposed. The cathode material employs carbon nanotubes and additional nanostructures to support efficient transport of Li ions. The resulting LIBs will support high transient and pulsed loads while offering enhanced safety and lifecycle performance. Proof-of-concept LIB cells were demonstrated in Phase ...

  6. Improve pyrotechnic smoke formulations that produce low flame

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT026

    The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that combines fill factor, yield factor, extinctio ...

  7. Roll-to-Roll Printing of Patterned Nanomembranes on Flexible Substrates

    SBC: SysteMECH, Inc            Topic: OSD10T005

    Flexible electronic and optical devices, including sensors/detectors, waveguides, and photonic crystal structures, have significant promise for improving communication and information processing capabilities in a number of military and commercial applications. However, the development of such flexible devices has been hindered by the lack of effective manufacturing processes for producing these de ...

  8. High Fidelity Obscurant Modeling for Sensor Simulations

    SBC: Simulation Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT004

    A technique that enables new methods of obscurant modeling with faster rendering while maintaining or improving physical fidelity is proposed. The proposed technique not only exhibits the statistics of voxel based obscurants, but matches real-world data as well. The main objective from Phase II efforts will be a further refinement of the flow field and particle technique of generating physically c ...

  9. Liquid Crystal-based Sensors for Detection of Airborne Toxic Chemicals for Integration with Unmanned Robotic Systems

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: A13AT004

    We aim to develop lightweight and rugged liquid crystal (LC)-based sensors suitable for integration into small unmanned vehicles, including hand-launched UAVs and throwable robots. For Phase I proof of concept, we propose to develop sensors that detect DMMP, H2S, NO2 and NH3. These gases include simulants of chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals, selected for their relevance to ...

  10. Cryodeposit Mitigation and Removal Techniques for Radiometric Calibration Chambers

    SBC: OPTICAL SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Optical Sciences Corporation (OSC) and the University of Alabama in Huntsville"s Center for Applied Optics (UAH/CAO) will demonstrate the feasibility and present a plan for developing optical instrumentation for the monitoring, mitigation, and removal of cryodeposits accumulated on optical and mechanical surfaces in cryogenic-vacuum radiometric calibration chambers. OSC will investigat ...
