  3. Continuous Detonation Rocket and Air Breathing Engines

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: SB082059

    GHKN Engineering, LLC teamed with Aerojet Recmond, proposes to build and test a CDRE with a number of fuels and oxidizers. Included in the proposal test program is thrust measurement, which together with mass flow measurement will be used to evalute CDRE performance, (and efficiency), of detonation combustion in these devices. The engine planned for testing was designed by GHKN under the Phase I p ...

  4. Innovative Approaches to Low Power, Sub-Threshold Electronic Circuits

    SBC: CAMGIAN MICROSYSTEMS CORP            Topic: SB082045

    This program proposes to demonstrate an ultra-low power design methodology and circuits for digital logic employing advanced dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) for asynchronous NULL Convention Logic (NCL) circuits operating in sub-threshold to super-threshold voltage regimes. The power supply voltages of logic block partitions will be independently set by on-chip voltage controllers based on the data p ...

  5. High Specific Power Electric Propulsion

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    A new thruster technology, the Electrodeless Lorentz Force (ELF) thruster, has been designed and tested at MSNW that has the capability to address the demanding combined requirements of high specific power, high efficiency, a large Isp range, and T/P in a single, lightweight device. The ELF thruster creates a high-density, magnetized plasma known as a Field Reversed Configuration using Rotating Ma ...

  6. Open System Manufacturing of Large Sensing/Weapons Platforms

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: SB102005

    In order to maintain our nation’s technological superiority on air, sea and land, we must respond quicker to emerging threats and reduce the cost of major sensing platforms. Every DoD platform developed nowadays contains at least one sensor, whether it be RF, EO/IR, or acoustic. In fact, in a lot of recent developments, the platform is built around the sensor and exists only to support the senso ...

  7. Miniaturized Cast Metal Integrated Components

    SBC: American Industrial Casting,            Topic: N/A

    Investment castings have well served both the military and commercial markets in such areas as waveguides and splitters for microwave applications, and for connectors, housings, heat sinks and mechanical parts for electronics, optical, instrumentation, and medical devices. Tomorrow's higher RF millimeter wave and communications electronics products, and more compact optical, instrumentation and m ...

  8. High Surface Area Carbon Electrodes for Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors

    SBC: EVANS CAPACITOR COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    A novel method for preparing carbon electrode structures having applications in electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs) is described. The method for preparing these structures employs carbon (graphite) nano fiber materials and results in an electrode having both high surface area and high electronic conductivity; two essential characteristics for EDLC electrodes. The fabrication process ...

  9. Low Cost, Low Bandgap Thermophotovoltaic Cells

    SBC: JX CRYSTALS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Using new low bandgap GaSb photovoltaic cells, JX Crystals has recently demonstrated functional thermophotovoltaic prototype generators. While it is generally believed that the cost of materials makes non-silicon photovoltaic cells prohibitively expensive unless one can develop thin film cells, this thesis is wrong for thermophotovoltaic cells. Specifically for the GaSb cell, the Ga and Sb mater ...

  10. Automated Bobbin-Baselayer Inspection System

    SBC: Machine Design Engineers,            Topic: N/A

    A fast and precise measurement system is needed for production line testing of bobbin baselayers and wound bobbins. This system should also support investigations to establish the acceptance criteria. The video metrology machine proposed for Phase II will achieve rapid image acquisition by taking a sequence of video frames as the bobbin is rotated and translated through the field of view. The lase ...
