  1. 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. This modeling tool is a package that integrates thermodynamic databases for the gas phase and silica-oxide EBC systems, and robust computer software dealing with complicated systems ...

  2. Azimuthal-Current Drive (ACD) Plasma Beam for Space Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N093223

    The proposed innovation seeks to take advantage of a recently developed highly collimated, high density plasma system which has applications for remote space debris removal. The Azimuthal-Current drive (ACD) Plasma Beam System produces a highly directed, intense plasma beam which can be shown to be effective in removing small space debris by imparting directed energy to small objects providing eno ...

  3. Ultrahigh Definition OLED Microdisplay (UDM)

    SBC: EMAGIN CORP.            Topic: AF093021

    Development of an Ultrahigh definition (>5 megapixel) active matrix OLED microdisplay with high dynamic range and refresh rate, and which provides 20/20 acuity with a digital near-eye visualization system, has the potential to significantly increase warfighter effectiveness without requiring compromises between resolution, field of view and digital capability. Active matrix OLED has been proven to ...

  4. Risk modeling for unmanned aircraft in US national airspace

    SBC: Aerovel Corporation            Topic: AF093205

    One of the obstacles to use of unmanned aircraft in the United States is lack of quantitative understanding of the associated risk of damage or injury. We propose to develop and promote practical algorithms for estimating risk of midair collision or surface impact. We further propose complementary work on path planning to minimise risk while accomplishing mission objectives, and on simulation to ...

  5. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The objective of this Air Force SBIR Phase II proposal is to optimize and develop an environmentally friendly replacement for the carcinogenic hexavalent chromium based conversion coatings on AMS 4434 Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel plated AISI 4130 and 4340 steel substrates. The proposed research is a continuation to the successful studies conducted during the Phase I stage of establishing the feasibil ...

  6. An Auditory Scene Analysis Approach to Speech Segregation

    SBC: Kuzer            Topic: AF09BT12

    This proposal seeks to investigate monaural (one-microphone) speech segregation. Motivated by the observation that the human auditory system has the remarkable ability of segregating an acoustic mixture and grouping the components of the same event into a stream in a perceptual process called auditory scene analysis, the proposed approach is based on auditory scene analysis principles. The overall ...

  7. Coherence Collapse- Speckle Reduction at the Laser Source

    SBC: Microvision, Inc.            Topic: AF083233

    Laser projectors provide brilliant and reproducible colors and large depth of infinite focus on flat or curved screens without compromising color saturation and brightness. However, lasers bring the speckle problem that manifests as random variation in image intensity resulting from interference of many scattered coherent laser light waves. Phase II technical objectives are to demonstrate speckle ...

  8. High Frequency (HF) Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR) Metric Accuracy

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF093057

    Over-the-Horizon radar (OTHR) uses ionospheric reflection to propagate HF transmissions to long range (~ 500 to 5000 km). The ionosphere is a dynamic “mirror” that varies diurnally, seasonally, and with the solar cycle. Geolocation of targets observed by OTHR, (Coordinate Registration; CR), requires accurate real-time ionospheric modeling and HF propagation calculations to convert radar-meas ...

  9. Terabit Per Second Optical Router for Space-Based Satellite Network

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083191

    The goal of the proposed Phase II effort is to transition the optical router and switch design investigations in Phase 1 to a demonstrable hybrid router/switch design that incorporates Spacewire Router (or similar) control plane logic into a compact, multi-gigabit optical interconnect for satellite networks that may be extended to terabit per second bandwidth regimes. BENEFIT: Enables high-speed ...

  10. SYREN- Acoustic Resonance Igniter

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF081066

    ORBITEC proposes to continue the development of the SYREN Igniter to meet the performance goals of the next generation of liquid hydrocarbon boost and upper stage rocket engines. This effort will advance the technical readiness level of an innovative family of igniters for rocket combustion devices. These igniters will exceed current reliability standards, reduce ignition system overhead, and pr ...
