  1. Restoration of LG components by EPVD

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF073115

    Aluminum-made LG outer cylinders easily become damaged developing nicks and scratches of 5 thousandths of an inch or deeper on the inner surface (ID). This leads to a premature condemnation. There is currently no repair technique to restore the LG outer cylinders to serviceable condition. The EPVD® technique is developed to apply fully dense, well-adhered non-hazardous coatings to internal surfac ...

  2. Rocket Propulsion Supporting Technology

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: OSD08PR2

    Refractory carbide materials posses the erosion resistance and high temperature strength required for the severe environments experienced by cutting tools, well bore equipment, and rocket nozzles. Refractory carbides (e.g. WC, TaC, and TiC) are usually formed by press and sinter techniques with an additional metallic binder or by forging with some binder. We propose fabricate ceramic metal matri ...

  3. Field Sensor for Measuring Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) Concentrations in Drinking Water

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF073139

    Rapid detection of the total trihalomethanes (TTHM) in treated drinking water is essential for compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts (DBP) Rule, which limits the maximum contaminant level of TTHM in drinking water to 80 parts per billion. The current detection method for TTHM determination involves sending samples to EPA ce ...

  4. Two-Beam Transmit Satellite Antenna for Limited Field-of-View (FOV)

    SBC: ALPHA OMEGA ELECTROMAGNETICS, LLC            Topic: AF081085

    The objective of this Phase I SBIR effort is to develop and demonstrate a low cost, low weight, two independent simultaneous transmit beam antenna for use in SATCOM systems like the Transformational Satellite Communications System (TSAT) downlink. The current MILSATCOM system supports one downlink antenna beam in the frequency band 20.2-21.2 GHz. The goal of TSAT is to transform communications s ...

  5. Non-Linear Transmission Line Microwave Source

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: AF073005

    Applied Physical Electronics, L.C. (APELC) offers this proposal to provide the U.S. Air Force with a solution to their near term need for a tunable, high powered (10s MW) RF source operating with a center frequencies from 750 MHz to 1.5 GHz, which is conformal to U.S. deployment strategies.

  6. Inorganic Radiation Resistant Solar Cell Coverglass Adhesives

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: AF073095

    The USAF is seeking to replace UV-susceptible adhesive that bonds the solar cell to a cover glass for enhancing conversion efficiency and to improve durability. Adhesives used for space solar modules need to meet many critical requirements including adhesion strength, optical transparency, thermal stability, and resistance against a broad range of radiation present in space environments includin ...

  7. Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer (DASH) for Measuring Winds in the Upper Atmosphere (90-300km)

    SBC: ARTEP, INC.            Topic: AF073103

    The primary goal of Phase I of this SBIR is an exploratory development to determine the instrument requirements needed to measure neutral winds in the upper atmosphere (90-300km) by passively measuring the Doppler shift of atomic oxygen airglow emission lines with a field-widened Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne interferometer (DASH) instrument aboard a satellite platform in low Earth orbit. ...

  8. Chemical Kinetics for Vitiated Flows

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF081057

    The flame stability in typical augmenters is largely determined by vitiated air composition and high preheat temperature of the incoming flow. Presence of significant quantities of CO2 and H2O in the vitiated air will affect the oxidation characteristics of jet fuels by increasing the third-body collision efficiencies of initiation and recombination reactions. Traditionally, kinetic models are va ...

  9. Charged Micro Fuel Injection for Small, Heavy Fuel Engines

    SBC: COMPREHENSIVE FIELD DEMONSTRATIONS            Topic: OSD08UM1

    Charged fuel injection accelerates the fuel vaporization process to the point that heavy fuels can be efficiently combusted at significantly reduced ambient air temperatures and pressures in engines that range in horsepower from below 5 to around 200. Phase I will focus on analytically and experimentally demonstrating charged fuel injection within an off-the-shelf 8.5 hp Lombardini 6LD 400 direc ...

  10. Accurate and Efficient Computation of Electromagnetic Fields and Waves over Unbounded Regions in 3D

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF081001

    The proposed project will rectify the current bottleneck in the simulation of 3D magnetic fields around high-current pulsed power devices. In the existing software, fields in the air are approximated by an artificial magnetic diffusion equation, which is both computationally expensive and nonphysical. The proposed solution avoids any nonphysical quantities and relies on exact conditions for the qu ...
