  1. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: Ahmic Aerospace LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    Scramjet engines are designed to operate across a wide Mach number range and typically incorporate isolator sections to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active, closed-loop control system is necessary to maintain engine stability and power output. During Phase I, key components of a scramjet control system were ...

  2. Adaptive and Smart Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT018

    The focus of this STTR program is the development and maturation of a novel, room-temperature process to fabricate multi-layer metal-polymer (including PVDF and other smart materials) composites in an additive approach. This overcomes the limitation arising from the large temperature difference between metal and polymer manufacturing processes, and presents a new technology for additive manufactur ...

  3. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Nanoscale infrared detectors are emerging as a potentially powerful alternative to traditional infrared detector technologies. The University of New Mexico has developed dots in a double well (DDWELL) quantum dot infrared photodetectors which have a spectral responsivity that can be tuned by controlling the bias voltage applied. In this Phase II effort, Polaris Sensor and UNM would fabricate a g ...

  4. Advanced Computational Methods for Study of Electromagnetic Compatibility

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT13

    The leakage of electromagnetic (EM) energy into air vehicles, and particularly into ordnance, poses a hazard that requires careful evaluation. Under current guidelines, such evaluations are primarily to be carried out through extensive testing of items under possible field conditions, a process that can be both time-consuming and costly. The scope of this STTR Phase I activity is to implement a h ...

  6. Advanced High Power Solid-State Burst Generator

    SBC: Ness Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT14

    Recent advances in dielectric and magnetic materials have spurred renewed interest in the field of solid state pulse and RF burst generation using Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL) . The NLTL approach to HPM and UWB generation eliminates the need for an electron beam, vacuum system and magnets required in conventional HPM sources. Furthermore, the novel waveforms of NLTL generated pulses promi ...

  7. Advanced Mediator Architectures for Efficient Electron Transfer in Enzymatic Fuel Cell Electrodes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF09BT03

    Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC systems offer ...

  9. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  10. All fiber-based high power Mid-IR precision frequency combs

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: AF08BT16

    ABSTRACT: Based on our success in developing the world first commercial 10 W femtosecond fiber laser system and our leading technology development in ultrashort pulsed fiber laser and nonlinear fiber optics, PolarOnyx proposes, for the first time, a compact all fiber based high power (>500 mW) mid-IR supercontinuum source (3-12 micron) to meet with the requirement of the AF solicitation. The lase ...
