  1. Isocyanate-Free Polyurethane Resins for One-Component, Ambient-Cure Coatings

    SBC: RENUVIX LLC            Topic: 15NCER04

    The Phase I project showed that novel urethane-functional (NUF) resins could be produced that were free of isocyanates and very useful for one-component, ambient-cured (OCAC) coatings. Resins for OCAC coatings, which are expected to be valued at $5.7 billion by 2019, are used to produce a variety of coatings including oil-based paints, wood stains, varnishes, and aerosol paints._x000D_ Phase I re ...

  2. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF17AT005

    The objective of the proposed research is to demonstrate high-power, scalable, and stable laser sources at specific wavelengths with narrow linewidth matched to the single velocity class of mesospheric atomic sodium for guide star application. The operation at tailored wavelengths, 1141 nm and 1178 nm (for 589 nm via frequency doubling) is addressed by the use of bandgap-engineered optically pumpe ...

  3. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: TPhotonics Inc.            Topic: AF17AT005

    The purpose of this proposed research is to develop and commercialize a novel two color sodium guidestar laser operating simultaneously at 589 nm and 1141 nm. Our patented T-cavity design combined with VECSEL technology will be the basis for the guidestar development. The polychromatic laser guidestar (PLGS) system being proposed currently does not exist and would allow for the correction of atmos ...

  4. Three-sided Pyramid Wavefront Sensor for High Sensitivity Wavefront Control

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF17AT006

    Fully develop the analytic theory of wavefront reconstruction from measurements made with a three-sided pyramid wavefront sensor (PWFS3), including the effects of variable modulation, photon and camera noise sources, and object angular extent. Carry out performance predictions of the PWFS3 through numerical modeling. Compare the sensitivity of the PWFS3 to a conventional Shack-Hartmann sensor and ...

  5. Practical Application of Molecular-Scale Modeling to Problems at the Grain Scale and Larger

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF17AT023

    The mechanical testing of energetic materials makes experimentation highly expensive and hazardous. Therefore, an accurate and practical modeling approach is necessary to predict their mechanical properties. Numerous atomistic to continuum models exist to predict the properties of energetic materials. However, these methods are not coupled with each other in a systematic and practical way; thus, ...

  6. High-Efficiency Radiation-Hard Solar Array Interface to Spacecraft Power System

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF162007

    Alphacore proposes to design and implement the desired Analog to Information Processor (AIP) converter capable of directly converting RF (radio frequency) signals to information. Analog to feature/direct-information converters has been widely researched across various methods of implementation (including use of optics, magnetic field storage and so on). The hardware implementation of such systems ...
