  5. Coherence Collapse- Speckle Reduction at the Laser Source

    SBC: Microvision, Inc.            Topic: AF083233

    Laser projection systems deliver the highest resolution, contrast ratios, color purity, and screen uniformity as compared to other display technologies used in flight simulation but suffer from an image artifact called speckle that manifests as random variations in the image intensity resulting from interference of many projected and scattered coherent laser light waves.  Contractor proposes a sp ...

  6. Energetic Polyazide Materials

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF08T022

    Orbital Technologies Corporation and Penn State University propose to examine and characterize novel energetic formulations in solid fuels to replace conventional, low-energy, binders such as HTPB. The proposed solid fuels will provide higher enthalpy, higher density, and improved rocket engine performance. In Phase I, we will calculate theoretical rocket performance of selected materials, chara ...

  9. High Performance Low Integration Cost Magnetometer System

    SBC: LEE, JENNA            Topic: AF083218

    An innovative data collection and analysis approach is proposed to enable body mount magnetometers for space application. In order to achieve high accurate magnetic field measurement in space, the magnetometer has to be located in a âmagnetically cleanâ place, where the magnetic field from spacecraft is negligible. Usually, the magnetometers are placed on deployable booms, so that the field sens ...

  10. High-Performance Fuels

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF06194

    ORBITEC proposes to continue the development of high-performance fuels to replace monomethyl hydrazine (MMH) and other storable fuels for in-space propulsion applications. Compounds from various chemical families were proposed in Phase I to address these needs. These families of compounds have greater heats of formation, lower volatility, and lower toxicity than MMH. Their reduced vapor pressur ...
