  1. Novel Extensible Design Approaches for Advanced Aircraft Composite Structural Architectures (MSC P4135)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: ST13A006

    Among the factors that inhibit the use of composite materials in both general aviation aircraft and DoD platforms are the high cost of engineering and the cost of certification. Unless manufacturers can control risk when introducing new materials and pro

  2. Novel schemes for highly reliable aerospace electromechanical primary actuation systems

    SBC: LCDRIVES CORP.            Topic: SB132005

    There is a need to achieve 10^-9 reliability for actuators for critical aerospace applications and this precludes single point failure for all but the simplest and most reliable electrical and mechanical components. LC Drives proposes a method of constructing a high reliability linear actuator for critical aerospace applications that is designed such that jams caused by conventional electrical a ...

  3. Looking Glass

    SBC: Intific, Inc.            Topic: 004

    Looking Glass is an immersive, story-driven game experience that enables computer science education for students K-12. It presents learning in a game-based series of challenge levels that permit a high degree of player choice in tailoring educational progression and adapting game systems that present both STEM and SEL interactions. Gameplay occurs within a futuristic Wonderland, where proficiency ...

  4. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    The dried blood spot (DBS) method is an alternative to venipuncture. The available data indicates that the DBS method is both precise and accurate for a diverse range of compounds. We discovered that proprietary additives vastly improve extraction of proteins in DBS using electrospray. Our unexpected results appear to dramatically increase analyte recovery concentration while reducing DBS prep, an ...

  5. Phased Array Antenna on a Wafer

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The ongoing explosion of microwave radar and communications systems calls for improvement in electronically scanned antennas (ESAs). However, current ESAs crafted from multiple individual elements are extremely expensive. Forming an antenna with integrated scanning and impedance matching elements on a single substrate using thin film technologies may decrease costs by up to two orders of magnitu ...

  6. Single Crystal Relaxor Ferroelectrics for High Performance Bio-Medical Ultrasound Transducers

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The TRP-SBIR project will address the synthesis and characterization of single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics for high performance bio-medical transducers. The ability to grow single crystals of various relaxor-based compositions with specific crystallographic orientations offers piezoelectric, dielectric and electro-mechanical properties not achieveable in ploycrystalline PZT ceramics. Limitati ...

  7. Voltage Tunable Ferroelectric Composites for Phased Array Radar

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I program will address the fabrication and testing of voltage variable dielectrics (VVD) in which the refractive index (n) can be E-field tuned providing electronic scanning in the microwave regions. In collaboration with Hughes' Radar Division, the manufacturing of large area composites based on the perovskite Barium Strontium Titanate (BST) will be integrated into a continuous t ...

  8. High Performance Multilayer Actuators: Templated Crystal Growth

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I program will address the fabrication and testing of pseudo single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics (PMN:PT) for high performance electromechanical actuators. In collaboration with Innovation Powder Technology, Inc. the crystallographic orientation of solid state grown PMN:PT will be controlled using hydrothermally synthesized perovskite PbTiO3. The use of large 5-10 micron platel ...

  9. High Power Density Fuel Cell for Vehicle Applications

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Operating temperatures for phosphoric acid fuel cells have been steadily increasing in the quest for higher efficiency. The temperature increase has been made possible by the use of more stable electrode catalyst and other fuel cell materials. This makes it possible to consider reforming methanol fuel internally, thereby improving efficiency and simplifying power plant design. This change eliminat ...

  10. Nanophase Composites as a Route to Pratical High ZT Polymer Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: Integrated Cryoelectronics,            Topic: N/A

    Some polymers exhibit Seebeck coefficients that are 100 to 1000 times higher than those of semiconductors used in today's thermoelectric devices. Unfortunately these polymers have low electrical conductivity that results in a figure-of-merit, ZT, that is much lower than do the conventional semiconductors. Attempts to increase the conductivity of polymers by doping or micro particle addition have ...
