  1. C02/Water Microemulsion Fire Suppression in Dry Bays

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083250

    Fires in dry bays of military aircraft present a significant hazard that must be addressed with advanced fire suppression systems. The USAF is interested in concepts that do not require power or active sensing of fire for proper operation. ADA Technologies, Inc. has been developing fine water mist fire suppression technology for the past 10 years, and proposes a solution for this problem that inco ...

  2. Autonomous Nonbattery Wireless Strain Gage for Structural Health Testing and Monitoring in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: AF08BT01

    There is a need to monitor the structural health of aerospace components operating in extreme temperatures ranges (e.g. -60 to +300C) and with high accelerations. Ideally the sensors employed for this task should be passive (i.e. not powered through batteries), permanently placed on the critical components and transmit the relevant data to a remote data processing center wirelessly.  Albido is pr ...

  3. Protecting Polymers from the Natural Space Environment with Films Grown Using Atomic Layer Deposition

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF07T011

    Polymers in space are subjected to various threats including hyperthermal oxygen atoms, UV and VUV photons, and ions.  These threats can degrade the polymer and lead to static charge accumulation.  This Phase II proposal will build on the Phase I work which demonstrated that inorganic films grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) can protect polymers such as Kapton, Teflon and PMMA.  Al2O3 ALD f ...

  4. Advanced Electronic Cooling Technologies

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: AF083222

    Aqwest proposes to develop an advanced thermal management for cooling of electronic components using a variable conductance heat sink (VCHS) offering unparalleled capabilities in high-heat flux handling and temperature control. The project will produce a cooling system with the following benefits to wide band gap amplifiers and high-power laser diodes (HPLD): 1) Heat flux handling > 1200 W/cm2 2) ...

  5. Platform for Ultracold Atom Inertial Sensor Development

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF07T024

    This work proposes to develop two critical subsystems and a rotation platform designed to enable ultracold atom inertial sensing research and development, with emphasis on rotation sensing (gyroscopes) for navigation, geolocation, mapping, and similar tasks.  The two subsystems presented here, the computer control and interface subsystem, and the integrated atom chip power source/current driver s ...

  6. Low Cost Deployable Calibration Structure

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF083224

    The U.S. has an inadequate capability to precisely calibrate ground and space-based Space Situational Awareness (SSA) sensors (U.S. SOSI system) with objects of known signatures. There is a need for a low cost, space-based capability that provides simultaneous electro-optical (EO), infrared (IR), and radio-frequency (RF) characteristics to calibrate the U.S. SOSI system. This enhanced U.S. SOSI sy ...

  7. Adaptive Structures for Micro Munition Platforms

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF081050

    The U.S. Air Force has significant interest in the development of adaptive structures for micro munition platforms.  However, power, mass and cost constraints significantly limits the applicability of existing adaptive structure concepts for these smaller platforms.  To address these challenges, CTD is proposing the use of solid-state, electrically-driven actuators that require minimal power and ...

  8. Passively Deployed Lightweight Solar Array Structure for Thinned-Multijunction Solar Cells

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF081092

    Current deployable solar array systems are based on designs that have been in existence for more than 30 years.  In general, these heritage designs can be divided into two classes: 1) hinged-panel arrays, which are mechanically simple but mass inefficient, and 2) tensioned-membrane arrays, which are mechanically complex but mass efficient.  Arguably, no deployable solar array designs exist that ...

  9. Accelerated Development of High-Performance Mo-Si-B-X Alloys via an Approach of Integrating Thermodynamic Modeling with Experimental Study

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF07T003

    The proposed study aims at accelerated development of Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) alloys with an optimized balance of properties, via an approach of integrating thermodynamic modeling with experimental study.   On the basis of the Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) database developed in Phase I, a thermodynamic database of the Mo-Si-B-O-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf, Re, Mn) system will be developed using the Calp ...

  10. A Modeling Tool for Predicting the Durability of Environmental Barrier Coatings (EBC) for Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC)

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF083070

    CompuTherm, LLC proposes a pilot project to develop a modeling tool that can be used to assess the durability of environmental barrier coatings (EBCs) for ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) under combustion environment. The modeling tool includes a thermodynamic database for the gas phase, a thermodynamic database for the silicate system (EBCs), and a computer software package that deals with thermo ...
