  1. Efficient Manufacturing of Low Defect Density SiC Substrates using a Novel Defect Capped Planarization Assisted Growth (DC-PAG) Method

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: AF121183

    ABSTRACT: Silicon carbide based power devices has several advantages because it can be used in very high power, high temperature, high frequency applications, where conventional silicon devices cannot be used. Despite significant advancement in SiC semiconductor technology in the past 3 decades, the presence of device killing defects in the epilayer has impeded the rapid commercialization of SiC- ...

  2. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  3. Rapidly Configurable Turbomachines for Air Cycle Machine Emulation


    For aircraft thermal management systems, the air cycle system is powered by an air cycle machine (ACM). The ACM typically consists of a power turbine that utilizes high pressure bleed air, along with a cooling turbine to produce the necessary shaft power for a compressor and starter/generator. To develop a laboratory based ACM, there is a need to develop a system that sufficiently simulates the ...

  4. Magnetooptical isolator for free space and waveguide applications operating at 0.4-5 um

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: AF141199

    The laser sources emitting from short to long infrared wavelengths are used for environmental sensing, metrology and clinical diagnosis, LADAR applications. The second atmospheric window between 3-5 um is crucial where a large number of gases, e.g. methane, nitric oxide, carbon mono-dioxide or formaldehyde, can be detected. Due to the presence of very strong fundamental stretching modes of O-H, C ...

  5. Miniature Air Launched Rawinsonde and Dropsonde (MALRD)

    SBC: Wintec, Inc.            Topic: AF112194

    ABSTRACT: The main objective of the MALRD SBIR Phase II research is to develop design alternatives to collect atmospheric data using a novel concept whereby a F-16 fighter aircraft equipped with a ALE-47 countermeasure dispenser system (CMDS) may alternatively serve as an air-launched instrumentation-dispense platform. Specific atmospheric data will be collected by the dropsonde sensors including ...

  6. Direct Printing of 3D Structural RF Electronics

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT: Using the advantages of 3D printing, an antenna system wing structure will be printed. The antenna system will be a multi-layer electronic device with a number of antenna elements. The electronics will not be mounted to the wing structure, they will become part of the wing structure. This implies an impact to Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) for UAVs. The payload will become part of th ...

  7. d-FOUR Electronic Toolkit (d4ET)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: AF121020

    ABSTRACT: An opportunity exists to develop methodologies and tools to objectively assess the overall training effectiveness of a simulation and pinpoint specific system characteristics such as fidelity and training strategy support which contribute to the training effectiveness or lack thereof. To address this, Design Interactive (DI) proposes to develop the d-FOUR Electronic Toolkit (d4ET), a T ...

  8. Plug and Play for Architecture for Modular Weapons

    SBC: Wintec, Inc.            Topic: AF141142

    ABSTRACT: Existing air-to-ground weapon architectures are generally based on point designs which are unique to individual weapons and/or weapon prime contractors. These weapons cannot be readily modified or upgraded, or easily reconfigured to different capability levels for cost-effective performance of varying missions. Modular open system architecture (MOSA) principles offer significant promi ...

  9. Data Analysis and Mining for Penetration Environment Dynamics (DAMPED)

    SBC: ANYAR INC.            Topic: AF141143

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an analysis/tool integration architecture to enable the synergistic exploration and capture of the critical features of the penetration fuze environment found within combined experimental and computational datasets. We will develop a design of the architecture and investigate the required capabilities of the architecture (software and hardware). We will implement a ...

  10. ITO Repair on Transparencies

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF141153

    ABSTRACT: There is a critical need for rapid flight line repair of scratches in Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) -coated transparencies. While ITO meets current requirements for conductivity and transparency, it is easily damaged and has deposition techniques that are incompatible with depot conditions. Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc. proposes an improved transparent patch that would offer an Indium-free ...
