  1. Characterizing JP-10 High Temperature Decomposition Chemistry using RMG- An Automatic Reaction Mechanism Generator

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N09T011

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) and MIT are collaborating to establish the feasibility of fully characterizing the complex chemistry of JP-10 high temperature decomposition, in the presence of oxygen, using a novel automatic reaction mechanism generation tool (RMG) developed at MIT. JP-10 is a very attractive fuel for missile and other air-breathing propulsion applications due to its high energy den ...

  2. Large Area Metamaterial Films

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N09T018

    In this Phase I STTR research program Agiltron will demonstrate that low-cost, micro-contact printing is suitable for the fabrication of large area, thin-film, flexible metamaterials with unique optical properties for wavelengths between 2 and 14 microns. Our research partner, the University of Michigan, will use roll-to-roll micro-contact printing to pattern the fine structure of the metamaterial ...

  3. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Gamma radiation detection has traditionally required single crystal materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. Agiltron has developed a new class of scintillator materials based on composites containing nanoparticles. These so-called nanocomposites exhibit radiation detection characteristics superior to currently available single crystal scintillators. In Phase I ...

  4. Tunable High Pulsed Energy Blue Fiber Laser

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N09T006

    Leveraging on our extensive production experience in fiber optical components and fiber lasers, AGILTRON proposes to develop a new novel high pulse energy tunable blue laser with doped ZBLAN fiber. Based on enhanced blue upconversion by properly selected co-doped materials, the proposed blue fiber laser will be able to generate high power. Furthermore, by using Agiltron’s proprietary beam combin ...

  5. Automated Fiber Optic Cleaner for Aerospace Connector Maintenance

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N091040

    Present fiber connector cleaning methods and systems have a high fail rate with an unacceptable level of uncertainty as to the effectiveness of the application. Fast and effective cleaning of fiber optic connectors remains a challenging task due to the high susceptibility of communication fibers to blockage by particles in the ambient. Agiltron proposes to develop a novel fiber optic cleaning syst ...

  6. Underwater Vertical Electric Field Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N091027

    Underwater electric field detection in the vertical (Z-component) direction is becoming more important in anti-submarine warfare (ASW) to detect and classify marine vessels in addition to the horizontal (X and Y component) plane. Leveraging on our extensive experience on photonic approaches for electric field sensing and RF photonics, AGILTRON proposes to realize a feasible class of vertical elect ...

  7. Wireless Sensor Nodes with Energy Harvesters for Joint Weapons Systems Diagnostics/Prognostics

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N08109

    In this SBIR program, Agiltron proposes to develop a new class of wireless sensor nodes with integrated energy harvesters, which will be indefinitely self-powered, for use in Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) environments. The proposed effort leverages on industry-wide development in ultra-low power sensors and low-power wireless sensor network modules (IEEE 1451.5 standard), as well as Agiltron’s rec ...

  9. Augmented Reality Maintenance System (ARMS) for Complex Military Assets

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N07005

    Currently, equipment maintenance requires highly trained individuals and is labor intensive, expensive and inefficient. The Marine Corps and DoD use written technical manuals and Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM) to direct technicians through complex maintenance procedures for land vehicles, radar systems, radio communications systems, and ground-based weapon systems. Recently, the i ...

  10. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5x5 cm2, right cylinder, ...
