  1. Seamless Non-Line-Of-Sight Communications for Urban Warfare

    SBC: ADAPTIVE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T022

    This project will investigate candidate space-time coding schemes to be incorporated in a multiple-input multiple output two-way communication system that operates within an urban warfare environment. The main objective is to increase channel capacity to achieve high-quality video transmission using narrow signal bandwidths, typically deployed for voice channels. The investigation will determine t ...

  3. Passive High Performance Heat Storage and Dissipation Technology for Transient High Power Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T010

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), in partnership with the University of Nevada-Reno (UNR), is developing a high performance metal hydride heat storage and dissipation technology for high power lasers. The proposed technology incorporates heat pipes for passive acquisition and dissipation of high heat flux heat loads and metal hydrides for storage of the heat loads during the laser operati ...

  4. VCHP Heat Exchanger for Passive Thermal Management of a Fuel Cell Reforming Process

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05041

    A key component of the Navy fuel cell system is the reformer, which converts diesel fuel into methane for consumption by the fuel cell. Reaction temperatures are critical to proper function of the reformer. Reaction temperatures are currently regulated by valves in the process gas streams. These valves require power, consume space, increase pressure drop, and are hindering tight integration and pa ...

  5. Shock and Vibration Tolerant Capillary Two-Phase Loops

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A06193

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), supported by Hamilton Sundstrand, proposes to develop a shock and vibration tolerant Capillary Two-Phase Loop for military vehicle applications. The proposed capillary two-phase loop differs from the traditional loop heat pipes and capillary pumped loops in the evaporator design, which provides inherent tolerance to shock and vibration. Two additional fea ...

  6. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing exchange-coupled magnets with a mixture of Sm2Fe17Nx and alpha double prime-iron nitride powders as starting materials. Advanced Materials Corporation (AMC), together with Georgia Institute of Technology propose to produce these powders with the use of a fluidized bed reactor and consolidate mixtures of these powders uti ...

  7. Low Reynolds Number, High-Lift Airfoil Design for VTOL UAVs

    SBC: AIRFOILS, INC.            Topic: A06006

    A complementary, theoretical and experimental effort to design and verify high-lift, low pitching-moment airfoils for VTOL UAVs is proposed. In Phase I, an accurate, rapid, test capability will be validated over the range of Reynolds numbers from 50,000 to 500,000 by investigating the E 387 airfoil, the low Reynolds number calibration standard, in The Pennsylvania State University Low-Speed, Low- ...

  8. Real-time Radar Perception For UGV Navigation

    SBC: APPLIED PERCEPTION, INC.            Topic: A06215

    Though ladar and stereo have received far more attention for UGV navigation use, radar offers some unique benefits. Many radar systems have the ability to partially penetrate thin vegetation, fog, smoke, and other obscurants while detecting hidden solid obstacles. Also, some systems provide useful information in addition to range; for example, Doppler radars measure target relative velocities as w ...

  9. Design, fabrication, and characterization of novel waveguide structures for high-power and compact THz sources based on a novel concept

    SBC: ArkLight            Topic: AF06110

    In the proposed work we will investigate the THz properties of a slab waveguide made from a GaP or ZnGeP2 wafer. We plan to investigate how the width of a slab waveguide will affect the output power of the THz waves and normalized conversion efficiencies. We are particularly interested in the exploration of how the multi-modes supported by the waveguide will affect the THz parametric conversion du ...

  10. Soldier Universal Robot Controller

    SBC: CHATTEN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A04038

    Chatten Associates proposes a research and development plan to improve the head-aimed vision system for remote operation of unmanned ground vehicles that was demonstrated in Phase I. We will deliver a number of head-aimed vision systems to ARDEC Picatinny for their use in test and evaluation. We will specifically support a test of high-speed tele-operation of an Ackermann-steered vehicle. We will ...
