  2. Thermoelectric material-coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT22

    The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...

  5. Fast Trajectory Generation in High Fidelity Geopotentials using Finite Elements, Mascons, and Parallelism

    SBC: ANALYTICAL MECHANICS ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF09BT02

    We propose to investigate the feasibility of obtaining fast and accurate trajectories using global geopotential models representing departures from the two-body plus J2 terms. The proposed geopotential formulations and numerical integration methods rely on multi-core processors and the emerging massive parallel capabilities of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) available to common personal computer ...

  6. Enhanced Carbon Nanotube Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: AF09BT05

    The mission of this proposed research is to develop ultracapacitors (also known as electrochemical or supercapacitors) to address an array of military applications. These applications include pulsed power for directed-energy and kinetic-energy weapons, sensors, and power supplies and control systems for aircraft and spacecraft. The proposed innovation employs carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated with p ...

  7. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: ST092005

    Small satellites working in coordinated manner as part of a distributed constellation hold the promise to revolutionize DoD space operations. However, small satellites also have significant inherent limitations. Their size limits the types of sensors that they can accommodate. It also limits propulsion, power generation and attitude control capabilities. One way of overcoming some of these lim ...

  9. Adaptive Turbine Engine Control for Stall Threat Identification and Avoidance

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT008

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT propose to develop a model-based adaptive health estimation and real-time proactive control to identify gas turbine engine stability risks and avoid them through control action. In this concept, the engine control system actively monitors sensors and actuators, compares them against physical models, and infers which components may be performing poorly and may need to ...

  10. Distributed Adaptive Control of Engine Systems

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T026

    Aurora and Georgia Tech’s Phase I efforts demonstrated the feasibility of a partially distributed control scheme with separate controllers on the engine core and fan, where the controllers are linked by a supervisory controller. This scheme is representative of the situation encountered in VTOL UAV design and the design of new turbo-props and variable pitch turbofans by the large commercial gas ...
