  1. A Conformal Packaging and Installation Technique for In Situ Sensors in Extreme Environments

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N112123

    Sporian Microsystems Inc. has spent the last several years developing polymer derived SiCN sensor and associated packaging technology for application temperatures up to 1350 & #176;C, and demonstrated them in the combustion environments of a range of commercial burner rigs and aerospace turbine engines. Based on our expertise in high-temperature materials and packaging processes, we propose to dev ...

  2. A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel Capabilities


    Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...

  3. A Hierarchical and Extendable, Component-Based Simulation Tool for Aircraft Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19BT025

    The requirements for thermal management on tactical aircraft systems have reached a level at which integrated system design must be considered early in the aircraft design process. An integrated propulsion, power and thermal modeling and simulation design approach is necessary for reduced size, weight and power requirements. At the same time, there is an urgent need for capabilities that enable an ...

    SBC: Nu Waves Ltd.            Topic: N07191

    Existing filter technology does not suit the mechanical and electrical needs for use in expendable buoy systems. Current diplexer/triplexer designs do not provide adequate rejection of the high power transmitter signal within the receive channel within the specified size, weight and acceleration constraints required for the Navy Buoy System. NuWaves will leverage its success from the phase I and a ...

    SBC: Cobra Design & Engineering, Inc            Topic: N07191

    A Triplexer supporting Legacy UHF SATCOM plus MUOS Existing frequency bands will have similar electrical performance to the Phase I Diplexer. The cross-sectional area of the Triplexer will be larger than the Diplexer because of the added MUOS receive channel filter resonators and because the Transmit channel filter will be converted from a band-reject to a band-pass topology that requires larger d ...

  6. A MEMS Multi-sensor Suite for Prognostic Health Monitoring Applications in Military Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N092100

    The ability to monitor the health of military assets/equipment, to know their history, and to estimate their condition and/or useful life is an important issue for military planners. A key aspect of such heath monitoring (HM) concepts is a system that can sense, record, and store the history data of environmental exposures of an asset over its lifetime. Environmental parameters of most interest in ...

  7. A Miniaturized SERS Based Sensor Technology for detecting toxic contaminants in oxygen from aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems (OBOGS)

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft equipped with On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems (OBOGS) selectively filter nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants in air from the aircraft's engine to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. Under suboptimal operating conditions, toxic byproducts can breach the OBOGS and enter the aircrew's oxygen supply. Current contaminant sensor technologies tend to lack ...

  8. A Novel Power Chip for Opportunistic Energy Harvesting on Submarines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N093190

    Our objective is to develop a novel, MEMS-based, durable power harvesting chip that is capable of gathering, converting and storing multiple natural energy sources, including optical and thermal radiation, microwave and millimeter electromagnetic waves, and vibrations, into usable electrical energy capable of operating low power electronic devices, especially wireless sensor systems on a submarine ...

  9. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  10. A small, pump-free source for cold and ultracold atoms

    SBC: TRIAD TECHNOLOGY INC.            Topic: N102119

    A vacuum system with pressures typically below about 10-9 torr is required to mitigate thermal background collisions when producing Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) and other forms of ultracold matter. Traditional setups contain multiple vacuum chambers, often employ the use of large ion pumps, and take up significant space on a full-sized optical table. While ultracold matter has great potential i ...
