  1. Multiple Independent Levels of Security/Safety Tools and Processes

    SBC: WW TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC            Topic: AF071060

    Certification of systems with Information Assurance requirements is challenging and expensive due to the lack of powerful abstractions that permit separation of concerns. Current methods consider systems in total at the implementation level and the resulting complexity leads to expensive an inaccurate system characterizations. A need exists to provide representations of diverse, yet coordinated, ...

  3. Develop High-Temperature, Low-Humidity Aromatic Hydrocarbon-based H2/O2 Membranes for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF071130

    In order to achieve high performance at acceptable cost, PEM fuel cells are required to work at elevated temperature and low relative humidity (near 0 RH) for extended periods of time. However, to date, no commercial PEMs or publicly reported PEMs can meet these requirements. The objectives of this work are: (1) to develop PEMs that have high proton conductivities (50-100 mS/cm) and low area-spec ...

  4. Two-Beam Transmit Satellite Antenna for Limited Field-of-View (FOV)


    The objective of this Phase I SBIR effort is to develop and demonstrate a low cost, low weight, two independent simultaneous transmit beam antenna for use in SATCOM systems like the Transformational Satellite Communications System (TSAT) downlink. The current MILSATCOM system supports one downlink antenna beam in the frequency band 20.2-21.2 GHz. The goal of TSAT is to transform communications s ...

  6. Environmentally Friendly Cleaning for Titanium Welds and Brazing


    The first critical step in welding or brazing is cleaning to remove surface contamination. The Air Force has a need for an environmentally cleaning method that has no waste stream, minimal requirements of personal safety protection, and does not impact component integrity. The Arc Scrubber is an emerging non-chemical cleaning technology that utilizes and electrical arc to remove surface contamin ...

  7. Unresolved Resident Space Object Characterization Using Time-Frequency Analysis

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF071283

    Applied Optimization, Inc. [AO] proposes to demonstrate full feature characterization of unresolved RSOs by performing spectral unmixing and time-frequency analysis of its time and spectrally resolved signature in the visible or infrared spectrum. The characterization will be performed step-by-step by following a taxonomy of feature extraction. Materials identification will be performed via spectr ...

  8. Silicon-Modified Nanofibers for Advanced Lithium Ion Anodes

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: OSD08EP2

    Advanced rechargeable battery technology providing higher energy densities and higher specific energies is being sought by the OSD to extend the range and capability of small electronic systems. In this proposal, an anode material is proposed based on carbon nanofiber alloyed with silicon. While many researchers have tested carbon-silicon alloys created through various schemes, these materials s ...

  9. Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer (DASH) for Measuring Winds in the Upper Atmosphere (90-300km)

    SBC: ARTEP, INC.            Topic: AF073103

    The primary goal of Phase I of this SBIR is an exploratory development to determine the instrument requirements needed to measure neutral winds in the upper atmosphere (90-300km) by passively measuring the Doppler shift of atomic oxygen airglow emission lines with a field-widened Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne interferometer (DASH) instrument aboard a satellite platform in low Earth orbit. ...

  10. Rapid Design, Analysis, and Test of Hypersonic Propulsion Integrated Configurations

    SBC: ASTROX CORP.            Topic: AF073091

    The Air Force Research Laboratory Air Vehicles Directorate needs to be able to rapidly develop hypersonic vehicle concepts and to do so with as little risk as possible. A new technology called Rapid Prototyping will assist the Air Force in reducing risk in choosing the best path for fielding hypersonic vehicle systems. This technology will allow the rapid testing of many concepts, thus adding conc ...
