  1. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: H. F. Webster Engineering Services, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    There are two main objectives that this proposal addresses. The first is to develop an oil additive that reduces friction and is thermally conductive and designed to increase engine efficiency and equipment lifecycles.This will be obtained through further material production and testing.Once the desired thermal conductivity and friction coefficient is achieved, the oil additive will be tested at S ...

  2. An Energy and Power Dense Air Launched Platform Power Source

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF191076

    Air-launched weapons require high-power, high-energy density power supplies to operate radar, electronic guidance, guidance fin motors, and avionics systems. Due to the high cost and poor availability of existing thermal batteries, a suitable replacement power source using innovative energy storage concepts is desired. Creare proposes a novel high density power source based on an aluminum-air batt ...

  4. Low Profile Night Vision Goggle Mounting Solution

    SBC: Wilcox Industries Corp.            Topic: SOCOM191003

    Under Phase I, a feasibility study will consider key system trades to meet the goals of the program. The goals include development of three innovative concepts for a new low profile night vision goggle (NVG) mounting solution with 2 or 3 positions, which are operationally suitable/applicable to the specified NVGs and ballistic helmets. These creative design concepts will reduce the systems profile ...

  6. Next Equatorial Scintillation Forecasting Model

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF183030

    Ionospheric scintillation can disrupt systems that rely on transionospheric radio wave propagation, including communications, navigation, and radar systems. Advances are needed to improve forecasting accuracy and specification of impacts. Creare and its research partners propose to develop a new global equatorial ionospheric scintillation model that will ingest and fuse data from a diverse array o ...

  7. Affordable Materials and Coatings for Pressure Gain Combustion

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: AF183039

    The notional thermal performance and mission requirements for Rotating Detonation Engine (RDE) components would benefit from the availability of high temperature ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials with good oxidation and thermomechanical durabilityespecially for next-generation RDE combustion chamber components. This Phase 1 SBIR proposal addresses the requirement to significantly improve th ...

  8. Upper Stage Rocket Engine with Pressure Gain Combustion for Improved Performance and Reduced Cost

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF182060

    The performance and core technology of upper stage engines has changed little in decades. Additionally, the cost of these engines adds substantially to the launch vehicle cost. New, higher performance, lower cost engines are needed to dramatically reduce launch vehicle costs. Pressure gain combustion is a new type of engine cycle that offers the potential to dramatically increase the efficiency of ...

  9. Practical, High-Performance Recuperators for UAS Turbogenerators

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17001

    Power and propulsion systems for small unmanned aerial systems (UASs) face increasing demands for high efficiency, high power density, and reliability. Small gas turbines offer high power density and excellent reliability but are typically less efficient than internal combustion engines. We propose to develop advanced heat exchanger technology that can be used to produce recuperators that will inc ...

  10. Automated Identification and Tracking of Defects in Outer Mold Line

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF183040

    Visual inspection of aircraft outer mold line for coating and structural damage is time-consuming and prone to human error. Creare proposes to develop a laser scanning system designed specifically for surveying the outer mold line. Creares scanners will use a novel illumination pattern to enable the entire aircraft to be scanned quickly while providing highly accurate dimensions and locations of d ...
