  1. Short-Wavelength Countermeasure for Circadian Desynchrony

    SBC: APOLLO LIGHT SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF07T015

    Air Force operations often expose flight crew and support staff to unusual light-dark cycles that causes misalignment of the circadian pacemaker and sleep-wake cycles, resulting in disturbed sleep and impaired waking function. Air Force personnel are also frequently required to remain vigilant, often under conditions of acute or chronic sleep deprivation. An effective countermeasure is required to ...

  4. Development of a Sulfur-Tolerant Anode for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: OSD06EP1

    Fuel flexibility is a major advantage of a solid oxide fuel cell as a power generation device. However, present fuel cell anodes do not tolerate the sulfur compounds that are commonly present in both military and commercial liquid fuels. The proposed work will concentrate on developing and demonstrating a sulfur tolerant anode for a solid oxide fuel cell. The performance demonstration will be done ...

  6. W-band Microwave Amplifier Power Module

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF063001

    The Air Force would like to exploit the V (50-75 GHz) and W (75-110 GHz for SATCOM applications. For this SBIR, we propose to implement microwave power modules (MPMs) that combine lower power Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) driver amplifiers and equalizers with miniature traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers to provide high power density at lower cost. These MPMs will include the M ...

  7. Novel Terahertz Sources for Advanced Terahertz Power: Nanoklystrons and nanoTWTs

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF05T020

    The region of the millimeter and submillimeter-wave frequency bands, from 100 GHz to 3 THz (wavelengths of 3 to 0.1 mm, respectively), are some of the least explored and yet information rich regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This region of the spectrum, referred to as the terahertz (THz) frequency regime, roughly 300-3000 GHz, is ripe for development. A major impediment to development of a ...

  8. High-Efficiency Extremely High-Frequency (EHF) Power Amplifiers

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF06206

    There is a need to better utilize the EHF band of frequencies including for battlefield, battlespace and mission specific uses. As reconnaissance and aerial surveillance capabilities continue to both grow and improve, increased bandwidth, high fidelity, high data rate communications are becoming essential. InnoSys, in conjunction with a major defense contractor, is developing and implementing hi ...

  10. FireStudio- A GUI (Software Framework) for Fire Simulation Codes

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: AF06121

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to develop FireStudio, a graphical user interface (GUI) that provides an easy-to-use interface for fire simulation analysis and training. FireStudio will include support for a hierarchy of fire modeling tools, ranging from fast running zonal and empirical models (e.g., CFAST) to detailed CFD models (e.g., FDS). FireStudio will be designed for use by the non-mode ...
