  1. AC Plasma Sensor For High Enthalpy Hypersonic Test Facilities

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF17AT002

    Spectral Energies and the University of Notre Dame is developing a new class of point-wise sensors for high-enthalpy conditions that rely on the use of a weakly ionized AC discharge between two electrodes as the main sensing element. The advantages of this approach include a native high bandwidth with a theoretical maximum in excess of 15 MHz and a simple mechanical design that is inherently robus ...

  2. Adaptive and Smart Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT018

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies covering a broad range of technologies and processes have been under continuous and accelerating development since the 80s. While there are still fundamental hurdles such as low production rates and small sizes, AM holds tremendous promise in terms of revolutionizing manufacturing. Recent trends include direct-printing and incorporating sensors and electr ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Advanced Diagnostic for Performance and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE)are being developed to take advantage of the near instantaneous heat release potential of detonation waves versus conventional deflagration-based chemical reactions in combustion applications. However, the detonation product environment is extreme and current instrumentation to measure wall / surface conditions within the detonation chamber are lacking. The ...

  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 ...

  8. Advanced Morphing Moulage for Medical Training (AMM-MT)

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A002

    For this Phase I SBIR proposal, Vcom3D proposes to design advanced medical moulage that accurately simulates the progression of an injury or pathology by morphing through a series of clinical states to enable learners to confirm the progression of the wound and to determine whether iatrogenic errors or pathologies occurred duing treatment. The physical morphing moulage may be applied to medical m ...

  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. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...
