  2. Secure Cockpit-to-Ground Wireless Data Transfer

    SBC: Ionotronics Corporation            Topic: AF183013

    Current communication between a Fighter Pilots Helmet and the Cockpit is through a sophisticated cable. The requirements for the Helmet Heads Up Display and Video/Audio feed require Giga bps throughput. In this Phase I effort, a millimeter wave wireless system will be designed that supports end to end Gigabit Ethernet through a wireless link with the potential for 3.4 Gbps throughput. The proposed ...

  4. Micro Reactor Synthesis of Energetic Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Current production of AF-M315E relies on foreign sourced materials. It also includes a nitration step to make HEHN from HEH which is currently done in a slow batch process. This program will build a microreactor to continuously produce HEHN, reducing the total time spent on the nitration process from weeks to days. This program will also scale up the electrolytic cell built in the Phase I program ...

  5. Synthesis of HAN and HEHN in a Continuous Mix Process

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Production of hydroxylamine nitrate (HAN) and hydroxyethyl hydrazine nitrate (HEHN) is of great concern for the manufacture of AF-315E. Current stockpiles of heritage ingredients held by AFRL are being depleted and those manufacturers are no longer in exi

  6. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: JOHNSON ROCKETS            Topic: AF15AT21

    This Phase II STTR effort is focused on generating the data necessary to identify the phenomenology that produces carbon deposition within kerosene film cooled rocket engines.This data is essential to guide the model development and validation process.Program outputs will be both data and a physics-based model for carbon deposition.

  7. Modular, Low Cost Fixture for Evaluating OML Treatments for Stress-Strain Loading During Environmental Conditioning

    SBC: Material and Process Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF141167

    ABSTRACT:Material and Process Solutions LLC will build a modular, outer mold line (OML) gap fatigue test fixture that can be used to predict the overall lifetime of a complete OML stack-ups (gap filler and coatings) used on aircraft.We will evaluate two complete OML stack-ups at three conditions: no exposure, and both sequential and concurrent environmental conditioning and fatigue testing.The mod ...

  8. Tool to Assess State of Digital System after Electromagnetic Disruption

    SBC: Embedezyne LLC            Topic: AF151010

    ABSTRACT: Commercial off the shelf (COTS) electronic components have long been used by many companies in a wide range of industries to assist in their day to day operations. Most companies today use COTS computer workstations, servers, and networking devices in one form or fashion. While cost effective, COTS components are not required to adhere to strict Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standa ...

  9. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  10. Electrically Responsive Energetics for Variable Yield Weapons

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF141145

    ABSTRACT:This Phase II SBIR is the continuation of DSSPs Phase I work into the development of their novel solid state energetic material into an extremely insensitive, non-toxic, and electrically controllable explosive as a replacement for current Mk 82/83/84 bomb fills. This additional insensitivity does not sacrifice performance, as chemical performance modeling shows that an aluminized version ...
