  1. Mitigation of USV Motions via Wave Sensing and Prediction

    SBC: VECTOR CONTROLS, INC.            Topic: N10AT036

    A boats coxswain is adept at analyzing the wave environment, adjusting the crafts propulsion system and control surfaces to mitigate its motions and reduce the chance of capsizing. There is a significant predictive component in the coxswains control decisions. Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) lack the benefit of a highly trained coxswain reading and predicting oncoming waves - existing autonomous ...

  3. Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Based 3D Imaging

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: T701

    LongWave Photonics proposes a terahertz quantum-cascade laser based swept-source optical coherence tomography (THz SS-OCT) system for single-sided, 3D, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of non-conductive materials. The THz SS-OCT system uses a frequency tunable QCL array to generate an interferometric signal between a reference mirror, and a sample. An algorithm is used to transform this signal in ...

  5. Innovative Passive Magnetic Thrust Bearings for High-Speed Turbomachinery

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT037

    In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposed a passive permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat generation ...

  8. Low Cost, Scalable Manufacturing of Microlens Engineered Substrates (MLES) for Enhanced Light Extraction in OLED Devices

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 09b

    Solid state lighting is being promoted as the ultimate lamps of future. Though the internal quantum efficiency of OLED devices is almost 100%, external efficiency is a mere 36% mainly because of poor light out-coupling (~40%) from the device. Improvement in light out-coupling to & gt;70% and further reducing the manufacturing cost will rapidly accelerate the commercialization of the OLED technolog ...

  9. Defect Free, Ultra-Rapid Thinning/Polishing of Diamond Crystal Radiator Targets (20??m) for Highly Linearly Polarized Photon Beams

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 46e

    The fabrication of high-quality ultra thin (~20 micron) diamond crystals targets for 9 GeV highly polarized photon beams is an outstanding challenge. Current state of the art polishing/thinning techniques are not successful in thinning single crystal diamond to such dimension because of its extreme hardness and chemical inertness. These techniques create significant stresses surface and sub-surfac ...

  10. Development of High Current 2G High Temperature Superconductor Cabling Technology

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 66c

    Future magnets for Fusion Energy Systems require superconducting cables with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, 20 Kelvin operation, low AC losses and lower cost. A new method of fabricating a high current cable with 2G HTS tapes has been developed that will improve the engineering current density achievable. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Fut ...
