  1. A New Electric Propulsion Concept Based on Pseudospark Discharges

    SBC: ERC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a space propulsion concept based on the physics of pseudospark discharges. The device will be based on a multi-gap pseudospark device with a closed anode. The pseudospark is characterized by a transient phase, where high-intensityare created, and a "super-dense" glow discharge phase when the steady state is achieved. This phase produces very high plasma densities with min ...

  2. Autonomous Underwater Sensing of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nomadics has teamed with the University of Rhode Island to propose a sensor payload to be carried by a REMUS unmanned underwater vehicle in order to patrol coastal regions and the areas around deployed ships for protection against attack. The system willbe able to patrol large areas autonomously and detect threats from radiological, chemical, and biological weapons of mass destruction. Further, ...

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "The quality of semiconductor thin-film grown by vapor phase epitaxy is strongly dependent on the growth conditions. The diffusion of adatoms on the flat surface is largely responsible for the quality of the film. The diffusion rate is directly related tothe bond energy of adatoms. Recent experiments have demonstrated that application of an external field can lead to a change in the microstruct ...

  4. Detection of Infectious Bacteria in Water

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I STTR, Nomadics has teamed with the Keck Graduate Institute to develop a new form of highly sensitive biological filter intended for the protection of water supplies. In light of the growing concern about bioterrorism, an early warningsystem for the presence of biological agents in potable water would be desirable. The proposed system will be capable of supplying real-time data in ...

  5. High Frequency Vortex Generation for Active Flow Control

    SBC: Mechanical Compliance, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "FlesSys Inc. and the University of Michigan propose to develop and validate the performance of an active mechanical flow control device based on advanced complaint strictures technology. During STTR Phase I, PlexSys Inc (dba Mechnanical Compliance Inc.)has successfully developed a Gigh-Frequency Mechanical Vortex Generator by combining a compliant displacement-amplifier with a coice-coil generato ...

  6. High Temporal Bandwidth Optical Wavefront Sensor Technologies

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Airborne-based high-energy-laser (HEL) applications are currently receiving serious consideration for both theater defense and tactical systems operations. One of the most critical shortcomings in these undertakings is the ability to sense and correct foraero-optic distrotions to the exiting beam. While these shortcomings in adaptive-optic correction for aero-optical flow transmission are apparent ...

  7. Identification of the Species Responsible for Biological Inactivation in the OAUGDP

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    "Atmospheric Glow Technologies (AGT) proposes to initiate studies to elucidate the mechanism of inactivation of microorganisms using atmospheric plasma. In this Phase I work effort, AGT will identify and quantify the active species generated by the APD-210(Atmospheric Plasma Decon-210). The APD-210 has been independently shown to inactivate a number of different microorganisms including anthrax ...

  8. Innovative Antenna Concepts for Soldier and Field Applications

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The future battlefield will feature highly advanced targeting and firepower and will therefore require significant advancements in real-time information feed back for individual soldiers. Advanced communications and sensors systems can inform the soldierand his commander of, for example, the locations and identities of hazards and details of his physical condition. To advance this goal, radio-f ...

  9. Micromachined, Three-Dimensionally Integrated RF or RF-Optoelectronic Circuit Components

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is to develop novel high performance three-dimensionally integrated package designs for optical modulator applications. There are many optoelectronic device designs that show greatpromise in the research lab, but have demonstrated degraded response once packaged. The proposed effort will develop advanced packaging methods tha ...
