  2. Qu Tubes for High Temperature Heat Rejection

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF093079

    In our proposed effort, we intend to perform high temperature (100-200 Deg C) characterization of an ultra-advanced heat pipe to determine feasibility of using it in high temperature space radiators. In previous work, we have shown that the so-called "Qu Tube" achieves exceptionally high thermal transport rates at lower temperatures. BENEFIT: Our innovation will significantly reduce the size of ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Spectral Imaging of Space Objects

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF093056

    Applied Optimization, Inc. proposes to demonstrate feasibility of spectral imaging using a stationary filter micro-array in an existing, operational SSA system. It will make use of the excess capacity of the existing camera, without altering the optical path of the incoming light for metrics and panchromatic SOI data collection. The spectral imaging will not impact the high observational efficienc ...

  7. III-V Based Focal Plane Arrays for Video-Rate Terahertz Imaging

    SBC: TRAYCER DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T006

    Owing to a unique set of intellectual property and core expertise, this Phase II team, led by Traycer Diagnostic Systems, will build and characterize a packaged, 16x16 terahertz focal plane array (FPA) for broadband video-rate imaging at frequencies up to 1.3 THz. Traycer’s competitive advantage is based on its record-performing detectors, novel antennas, and array architectures that permit a d ...

  8. High Power Microwave Frequency Selective Surfaces

    SBC: BerrieHill Research Corporation            Topic: AF083009

    In general, there are two ways an FSS Radome subjected to an HPM source can fail. The first is under a sustained continuous high average power signal where heating in lossy materials causes melting or burning. The second is under a very high peak power signal where arching or breakdown occurs within or around the FSS elements, essentially shorting them out. During the Phase I of this SBIR, nove ...

  9. MAVlegs- Landing/running gear for perching MAV

    SBC: BIOROBOTS, LLC            Topic: AF093002

    BioRobots, LLC, will develop MAVlegs, a landing/running gear system that will significantly enhance our military and intelligence personnel’s ability to execute persistent surveillance by enabling a bird-size MAV to perch on a parapet wall, ledge, or tree limb. MAVlegs will arrest the MAV at the point of touchdown, because the perching locations are characterized by limited area. MAVlegs will en ...
