  2. Development of HTS Buffer Layers Using the ECONO Process

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Under Phase I effort, Applied Thin Films, Inc. (ATFI) discovered a new process to deposit oxide buffer layers for HTS coated conductors that is economical, scalable, and has demonstrated excellent performance with YBCO films (current densities of 1MA/cm2). The process is called ECONO (Epitaxial Conversion to Oxide via Nitride Oxidation) which is now being considered as the primary contender for t ...

  3. Microsensors for Gaseous Emissions Analysis

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Caviton has developed a new generation of microsensors utilizing microdischarge based emission spectroscopy. The microdischarge plasma is well suited for emission spectroscopy of gases introduced into the discharge, at atmospheric pressure. An opticalfiber near the discharge couples the light from the discharge to a small spectrometer, and a computer for analysis. The properties of these device ...

  4. Enhanced Toughness SiC with High Hardness for Advanced Armor

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Phase I research demonstrated that toughness of 8 MPa.m1/2 is attainable in advanced SiC using the SEPB technique, as compared with 2.5 MPa.m1/2 for conventional SiC. The Phase I work is currently on schedule in order to meet the objective of 5.5MPa.m1/2 toughness at a hardness of at least 24 GPa. SiC developed in Phase II work will have a hardness exceeding 28 GPa at a toughness greater than 7 ...

  6. Low Profile Confomal Designs for the VHF/UHF Laminated Antenna

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Conformal antennas for VHF/UHF have multiple uses, but the Phase I effort by Sciperio was focused on the design of a SLICE band omni-directional UHF antenna for integration within a soldiers helmet. The Phase I results for this conformal concept wereproof of the feasibility of designing an antenna capable of being integrated within or onto the surface of a Kevlar helmet. The antenna consists of ...

  7. Closed-Cycle ElectriCOIL Technology

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of CU AerospaceOs Phase II engineering work will be to develop all-gas-phase closed-cycle electrically assisted chemical laser COIL (ElectriCOIL) technology. CU Aerospace (CUA) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign(UIUC) believe that this challenge can be surmounted with changes to gain generator research including 1) radically new, electrically driven O2(1D) ge ...

  8. Superlattice Materials for Very-Long Wavelength Infrared Detectors (VLWIR)

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    The fabrication of large format, highly sensitive focal plane arrays (FPAs) sensing at very long wavelengths in the infrared region (VLWIR), i.e. beyond 15um, is highly desirable for the Air Force's space-based applications. Currently, only limited typesof arrays such as 256 X 256 Si:As are available in this spectral region. However, these extrinsic detectors suffer from several fundamental limita ...

  9. Developing Human-Compatible Needleless Delivery Systems for Administering Bioscavengers

    SBC: FELTON INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Phase II will focus on the design and development of a prototype needle-free injection system for administering BChE enzyme into humans to provide protection against chemical warfare agents. The Phase I proof-of-concept demonstrated the accelerateddelivery of BChE into the circulatory system using needle-free injection. The second phase of this project will consist of the following three tasks: ...

  10. Composite Stuff-Proof Windshield and Lightweight Pilothouse Assembly


    The Phase II effort builds on Phase I. Phase II starts with an integrated product and process design and engineering analysis of the baseline structure described in the Phase I report and variants that may reduce cost and risk. The emphasis is on use ofnonlinear FEA with continuum analysis to handle stiffeners, window frames, and connectors. After review and approval by SOCOM, the design is fab ...
