  1. Advanced-Architecture Compressor/Expanders for Energy Storage Applications

    SBC: Bright Energy Storage Technologies, LLP            Topic: N11AT028

    Bright Energy Storage Technologies and the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory at Colorado State University propose to demonstrate the feasibility of a custom reversible compressor design for use in compressed air energy storage systems. The design proposed combines a very lightweight rotary compressor design with extremely high flow volumes, allowing a highly efficient device at extremely lo ...

  2. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  3. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N11AT002

    As with all service branches within the Department of Defense (DoD), the mission objectives of the Navy are expanding to encompass not only major combat operations, but also asymmetric warfare scenarios. This expanding role requires the Navy to increasingly operate in littoral waters where effective identification of small craft and semi-submersibles is a critical capability for both fleet protect ...

  4. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: FirstPass Engineering PC            Topic: N12AT013

    In common terminology, chaos refers to a state of randomness or unpredictability. Chaos has a different meaning in physics and mathematics. In physics, chaos is a structured but irregularly patterned behavior displaying an extraordinary sensitivity to initial conditions. Work done by the principals of the proposal has proven that logic elements can be built with chaotic elements and can replicate ...

  5. Full Spectrum Zinc Oxide Nanowire Sensors By MOCVD

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N09T004

    Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) with its partner, Drexel University, propose to build upon our Phase I success and continue the development of electrically contacted zinc oxide nanowire (NW) arrays for highly efficient solar blind UV sensors, and implement them in a packaged prototype product. The properties of ZnO make it a very promising material for optoelectronic devices. In partic ...

  6. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Innovative Power Solutions, LLC            Topic: N11AT009

    UAVs are carrying out missions which were once reserved to manned aircraft only. These missions require that the UAV carries more and more sophisticated equipment which consumes large amount of electric power. The power requirement vary, and sometime consist of both AC power with a fixed frequency, and high voltage DC power. As power requirement grow the need for an electrical power system which i ...

  7. High Resolution Measurement of the Flow Velocity Field in a Supersonic Jet Plume

    SBC: PRINCETON SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N11AT004

    Modern supersonic jet aircraft engines produce a high amplitude noise field with complicated characteristics due to turbulent behaviors of the hot jet. Researchers need better understanding of the turbulent structures in the jet plume to develop treatments to engines that might reduce the noise emissions. A significant obstacle to making these simulations practical and realistic for engine design ...

  8. Highly-controllable, Dense Carbon Nanotube Arrays for Ultracapacitor Applications

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10T004

    The Navy and the U.S. Military as a whole will be challenged to find innovative solutions to ever-rising peak power demands stemming from the introduction of electricity-driven vessels and new directed energy weapons in the coming decade. Circuit protection from voltage variation is also a concern both on large and miniaturized scales. To address these needs, ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA), in colla ...

  9. Information Salience

    SBC: Adaptive Cognitive Systems            Topic: OSD11TD1

    A subtle and often unrecognized assumption lies behind the use of the terms salience and perception when they appear in the context of human information processing. Although it has become commonplace to blend the language of low-level physiological process with the language of high-level cognition, there is a substantive theoretical step to be taken before we can claim that, for instance, the abi ...

  10. Instantaneous Self-Sealing Protection for Fuel Tanks

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N12AT001

    Aircraft are susceptible to ballistic and other projectile damage. They are particularly vulnerable to damage to their fuel tanks. As a result, most jet fighters and all U.S. military rotary wing aircraft employ some type of seal-sealing fuel tank technology. Unfortunately, the existing self-sealing fuel tank technologies are heavy and offer unreliable reproducibility in the self-sealing layer res ...
