  1. Resilient Design and Operation of Complex Manufacturing

    SBC: TRIPLET TECH CORP            Topic: AF182015

    As Air Logistic Centers (ALCs) become more cyber-connected, there is an increased need to improve the resilience of manufacturing machines fabricating replacement parts. Protecting machines, operators, and ultimately the fabricated parts is critical in the efficient operation of ALCs. Resilience against faults, failure modes, and cyber-attacks will insure that machines stay in working order under ...

  2. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Battery Thermal Runaway Propagation and Containment Solutions

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: AF182054

    ThermAvant proposes to design, model and empirically demonstrate high thermal conductivity two-phase cooling of Li-ion cell walls and Li-ion battery assembly bus work. Two-phase heat transfer is the core technology that will enable demonstration of eliminating cell to cell thermal runaway propagation while offering a low thermal resistance path to heat rejection locations. Key challenges will incl ...

  4. Next-Generation Radioisotope Power System

    SBC: ZENO POWER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF183005

    Energy security and resilience is a paramount concern for the Air Force and the DoD. Zeno Power Systems is developing a next-generation radioisotope power system (RPS) that will be able to provide non-stop power for months to years at a time. RPS have the ability to provide consistent and reliable energy, but their use has been limited in the past due to their low specific-powers and inability to ...

  5. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: Startup Community, Inc            Topic: AF191005

    With over 40+ years of community and entrepreneurial ecosystem building experience across our team, we have the knowledge, network, and frameworks to efficiently research and develop the best approach for the Air Force/AFWERX to expand its entrepreneurial ecosystem and engagement. The ultimate benefit is to keep the USAF and AFWERX competitive through innovation.

  6. Micro Reactor Synthesis of Energetic Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Current production of AF-M315E relies on foreign sourced materials. It also includes a nitration step to make HEHN from HEH which is currently done in a slow batch process. This program will build a microreactor to continuously produce HEHN, reducing the total time spent on the nitration process from weeks to days. This program will also scale up the electrolytic cell built in the Phase I program ...

  7. Non-Pyro Electric Small Arms Fire Simulator

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: A18091

    Digital Solid State Propulsion Inc. is proposing the development of a reusable electric blank system that leverages over 10 years of success in formulating, engineering, and manufacturing Electric Solid Propellants for the space, defense, and entertainment industries.DSSP already has a pyrotechnic solution to battlefield effects simulating small arms fire based on eSquib technology, however, for t ...

  8. Tightly Coupled Oscillator and GPS Receiver

    SBC: Jackson Labs Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A17051

    GPS Disciplined Oscillator (GPSDO) systems traditionally combine the 1PPS output from a GPS receiver and highly stable clock like a Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) to steer the local clock frequency to match the frequency and phase of the GPS-generated 1PPS.However, the GPS receiver does not take advantage of the stable Chip Scale Atomic Clock for improved GPS receiver resilience, improved position ...

  9. Secure Cockpit-to-Ground Wireless Data Transfer

    SBC: Ionotronics Corporation            Topic: AF183013

    Current communication between a Fighter Pilots Helmet and the Cockpit is through a sophisticated cable. The requirements for the Helmet Heads Up Display and Video/Audio feed require Giga bps throughput. In this Phase I effort, a millimeter wave wireless system will be designed that supports end to end Gigabit Ethernet through a wireless link with the potential for 3.4 Gbps throughput. The proposed ...

  10. Damage Tolerance Analysis of Grinding Burn Cracks in High Strength Steels

    SBC: APES INC.            Topic: AF172001

    Landing gear are often made from high strength steels, such as 300M , which are known to have excellent damage resistance when properly manufactured and maintained but to have lesser damage tolerance when compromised. For example, the grinding process, when done improperly, can heat the steel excessively and cause undesirable microstructural transformations, called grinding burns, which often cont ...
