  2. Demonstration of Capacitors, Inductors, and Switches for Cryogenic Power Converters

    SBC: Cryo Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In order to realize the full potential of cryogenic power converters, it is vital to develop the technology for cryogenic capacitors and inductors, in order to be combined with the switching semiconductors. Capacitors with high dielectric constant and high voltage withstand at cryogenic temperatures with low weight and volume lie on the critical path. The proposed work focuses on innovative tech ...

  4. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...

  5. Hydrogen Supply System for Small Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell Stacks

    SBC: Royal Systems/ Associated            Topic: N/A

    1. A conceptual baseline design of a hydrogen supply system with a on/off capability will be prepared for delivering hydrogen in increments of up to 10g/hour with a total capacity of 120g hydrogen. This baseline design will be based upon a solid state hydrogen reactant mixture with a yield of 8% by reactant weight which has been previously qualified for military use. ...

  6. Poly Arylene Ether (PAE) Based, High Performance, Solvent Free Procesing of Aircraft Canopies

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Triton Systems, Inc will demonstrate a new method to produce a low melt viscosity PolyArylene Ether (PAE) macrocyclic oligomer that will be resin transfer molded (RTM) into optically transparent aircraft canopies. A ring opening polymerization converts the macrocyclic oligomer to an optically transparent PAE polymer with a high glass transition temperature. The PAE macrocycle is processable with ...

  7. High Efficiency, Broadband, Acoustic Transucer/Arrays for Various Underwater Applications

    SBC: Image Acoustics Inc            Topic: N/A

    An innovative deep submergence low frequency, broadband transducer forefficient operation is presented. The transducer uses a multiport concept (U.S. Patent 5, 184, 332) which allows back radiation to arrive in phase with the forward radiation and allows broadband depth independent operation. Because the system utilizes Helmholtz resonators, low frequency operation can be achieved. A number of ...

  8. Porous Sol-Gel Derived Ceramic Release Agent

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    Breathable release coatings that can withstand processing conditions up to 750F are needed for use on ceramic tooling. In situ removal of volatiles in solvent-based composite processing is a critical issue that will enable production of high quality parts at lower cost per part. Current release coatings meet neither the temperature nor the solvent transport requirements of solvent-based composit ...

  9. Composite Terfenol-D Transducers for Underwater Arrays

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oriented composites of PZT and polymer can have properties superior to ordinary PZT as drivers for sonar transducers and hydrophones because they have a lower Poisson ratio, and a lower dielectric constant. Terfenol-D is superior to ordinary PZT because it has larger maximum strains and higher energy density, and is not subject to fatigue or depoling. For these reasons, composite Terfenol-D shou ...

  10. High Performance Piezoceramic Coatings for Ultrasound Applications

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an innovative new process for the manufacture of smart structures using a High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray process. This simple, multi-step process will be capable of depositing electroded piezoceramic coatings. The coatings will be poled while still hot, reducing poling times and voltages while increasing poling efficiency. Process times will be extremely short. The pr ...
