  2. A novel Approach for High Rate Production of IR to IR Up-converting Nano-particles

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: Phosphor materials are currently being utilized in a wide variety of applications. The requirements for phosphors have become more and more stringent with smaller and smaller particles being required. In the Phase I program UES Inc in collaboration with Penn State University proposes to develop a novel approach for high rate production of high efficiency IR to IR up-converting nanoparti ...

  3. A Tactical Decision Support Tool for High Speed Projectiles in Adverse Weather Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N11AT036

    High speed projectile launch decisions always tend toward"clear sky"days because no capability has existed to assess high speed flight risk due to weather in either design or operations. Since clear sky conditions occur about 50% of the time, the risk of mission failure is unknown half of the time when clouds are present. Under a Navy Phase I STTR, CFD Research Corporation and the University of Al ...

  4. Advanced Flame Resistant Resin System for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Shipboard Applications

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N11AT014

    Efforts to replace metals with composites in shipboard applications have emphasized the use of brominated vinyl esters as fire-retardant polymers. Despite their relatively low cost and ease of fabrication, such halogenated polymers produce toxic and potentially carcinogenic gases; their compatibility with carbon fibers is also less than desirable. There is thus a need for environmentally friendly ...

  5. Advanced Mediator Architectures for Efficient Electron Transfer in Enzymatic Fuel Cell Electrodes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF09BT03

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC sy ...

  6. Affordable High Strength Mo-Si-B Alloys for High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Deep Springs Technology            Topic: N11AT029

    Under this STTR, Deep Springs Technology (DST) in cooperation with Georgia Tech is testing the feasibility of producing high strength Mo-Si-B composites based on the Georgia Tech method of ultrasonic spray drying Mo, Si3N4, BN powders, reacting the granules at high temperatures to MoSiB composites, and reduction extruding the sintered granules at high temperature into dense composite rods. The GT ...

  7. Computational Model for Electrode Erosion by High-Pressure Moving Arcs

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF11BT25

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop theoretical models for electrode erosion in high-pressure arcs and incorporate them into computational tools for simulations of arc heaters. The complexity of the electrode material removal process is associated with the multi-phase nature of the arc-electrode interactions, melting and vaporization of the electrodes near the arc foot. Available mod ...

  8. Defect Passivation for Improved Material Properties in Ga-free and Ga-based SLS

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA12T003

    A collaboration between Amethyst Research Inc., University Multispectral Laboratories (a government-owned, contractor-operated nonprofit corporation), and Teledyne Imaging Systems (a large defense contractor) proposes to develop/improve high-performance infrared sensors based on Type II, strained-layer superlattices (SLS). Such sensors offer (theoretical) advantages over state-of-the-art HgCdTe p ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Dual S&C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: MDA11T004

    Reductions and reallocations of telemetry wireless bandwidth have prompted the need for DoD agencies to adapt to operation in more restricted and less desirable frequency spectrum. Telemetering systems must evolve to address these frequency allocation changes, while retaining operational characteristics that are vital to MDA mission success. The design and implementation of high performance transm ...
