  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 ...

  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. Reduction of Structural Mass Fraction for Extreme Solar HALE Flying Wings

    SBC: Bally Ribbon Mills            Topic: SB072044

    The VULTURE Air Vehicle Program is an exploratory development program with the overall goal to develop and demonstrate the ability to deliver and maintain an airborne payload on station for an uninterrupted period exceeding 5 years using a heavier-than-air platform system. It is envisioned that this program will, at a minimum, develop and demonstrate advanced reliability technologies for air vehi ...

  6. Information Delivery and Display for Shared Awareness in the Net Centric Battlespace

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: SB052009

    Discovery Machine, Inc. (DMI) proposes to create and extend technologies and methodologies for capturing knowledge from subject matter experts (SMEs). The expertise will be gathered in the form of graphical models of hierarchical task-decomposition networks (HTNs) and semantic networks (SNs). The modeling will be performed directly by the SMEs through the Discovery Machine Expertise Encoding and ...

  7. A Compact High-Resolution 3D Lidar for Serpentine Robots

    SBC: IMAGING MICROSENSORS, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    An innovative compact, high-resolution lidar is proposed for 3D visualization for serpentine robots. The sensor provides a spatial resolution of approximately 0.5 cm, or better, in all three dimensions at a maximum range of 2-3 m. Such a fine resolution can be used by a serpentine robot to navigate around obstacles and detect targets of interest. The proposed sensor offers a wide field of view and ...

  8. Energy Storage Systems for Very High Altitude Very Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: SB072041

    One of the major challenges of developing aircraft is the development of an appropriate energy system. The energy system ideally has a large amount of energy with a very low weight. This equates to a high specific energy (Wh/kg). Lithium-air batteries offer the greatest theoretical specific energy for batteries at 13 kWh/kg. Yardney has extensive experience in requirements for battery power and me ...

  9. Metalorganic Enhanced Ion Milling for BaSrTio3

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

    The demand for higher performance semiconductor devices is pushing the limits of current materials technology. The development of a high dieletric constant capacitor material with 10 - 100 times the charge storage of SiO2 would allow a flat capacitor cell to be used in 256 Mb DRAMs, and simple stacked capacitors to be adopted for 1 and 4 Gb generations. IBM, TI and Micron have entered into an ARPA ...

  10. Cost Effective Copper CVD Precursors for ULSI Devices

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

    Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of copper for vias and interconnects is critical to manufacture of next generation high speed ULSI devices and has been extensively investigated over the last few years. Although considerable progress has been made commercialization of this technology is currently impossible due to the high cost of the source reagents. In this Phase I program Advanced Technology Mat ...
