  1. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System For Stand Off Chemical Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13104

    We propose an Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter (AOTF) Spectropolarimetric Imaging System for Enhanced Standoff Chemical Detection at Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) wavelengths. This work entails development of suitable LWIR material, design of the LWIR AOTF, and design of the hyperspectral imaging sensor using a focal plane array. Currently, there is no technologically mature, commercially available mater ...

  2. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Array for Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost Long Wavelength Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (LWIR FPAs) using colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) of mercury telluride (HgTe). In Phase I, QDs in the size range of 20-25nm (corresponding to cutoff wavelength of 8 to 12 microns) w...

  3. Regenerable, heat-Abating, humidity-Neutralizing, Carbon diOxide Removal System (RANCOR) Phase II

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: CBD12106

    In Phase I RANCOR successfully demonstrated an innovative enabling humidity control technology to provide very low humidity air to water sensitive, fully reusable CO2 adsorbents. The use of adsorbents enables complete reusability/rechargability and reduces the total heat load on the SCBA to the point where ice or other cooling systems will no longer be required. In Phase II Paragon will introduce ...

  4. Ultra High Temperature Refractory Materials

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: T1001

    Legacy refractory materials that have origins dating to the original Saturn program are commonly used in current launch facilities. Although they fail to meet the target requirements, they are the only approved material. Our research team has demonstrated a baseline system during the Phase I effort that combines a non-cement binder, a high temperature macro aggregate, and reactive nano aggregates ...

  5. An Uninhabited Aerial System Safety Analysis Model (USAM)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A201

    The National Airspace System (NAS) in the United States will become a complex array of commercial and general aviation aircraft, unmanned aircraft systems, reusable launch vehicles, rotorcraft, airports, air traffic control, weather services, and maintenance operations, among others. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) projects that by 2025 air traffic will increase by more than 50 percent ...

  7. Innovative Structural and Material Concepts for Low-Weight Low-Drag Aircraft Design

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A301

    The overall technical objective of this multi-phase project is to develop and validate a so-called 'AAW-Process' that consists of (i) the Active Aeroelastic Wing (AAW) technology of employing multiple control surfaces in tandem for achieving loads alleviation and drag minimization using the over-determined trim capability of ZONA Euler Unsteady Solver (ZEUS), and (ii) the aeroelastic tailoring tec ...

  8. CFD-Based Over-Determined Trim Analysis for Optimum Aerodynamic Efficiency

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A304

    The overall objective of this Phase I project is to develop a nonlinear trim module in FUN3D for enabling the determined and over-determined trim analyses to be performed by FUN3D with static aeroelastic effects. Based on an optimization formulation, the over-determined trim analysis can determine the optimum control surface scheduling of multiple control surfaces to achieve the best aerodynamic e ...

  9. Integration of Complex Geometry, 3D Woven Preforms via Innovative Stitching Technique

    SBC: T.E.A.M., INC.            Topic: H701

    Thick, 3D woven carbon/phenolic composites offer potential improvement over legacy thermal protection systems (TPS) for re-entry vehicle heat shield applications. However due to the scale and complexity of typical re-entry vehicle structures, it is likely that multiple 3D woven panels would need to laid up to create the overall heat shield, creating a potential weak spots at the panel joints. ...

  10. Uninhabited Traffic Management System Evaluator (UTME)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A201

    The key innovation of this effort is the development of an Uninhabited Aerial System (UAS) Traffic Manager Evaluator (UTME) specifically targeted at evaluating potential air traffic systems for handling low-altitude UAS flights. It has been estimated that over 90% of future UAS flights will be low altitude (less than 6,000 feet above ground level). At such low altitudes, the conventional air tra ...
