  2. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: ECSQUARED INC.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Petal is a novel bio-solar proposal to generate power using plant photosynthetic proteins combined to nanotubes bonded to a conductive substrate.The use of this architecture should allow for high efficiencies in the capture and harvest of photons and the generation of solar power in a very flexible format.This format will allow for scaling from micro to industrial scales.

  3. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: 4TH PHASE WATER TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Durable and robust large-area ultrathin CNT sheets can be produced from pristine CNT sheets following proprietary CNT purification and densification processes. The resulting CNT sheets are free-standing, flexible, durable, robust, ultrathin (< 5 m) and lightweight (~6 g per m2). They withstand corrosion and heat and are superior at shielding EMI (effectiveness >= 55 dB in the X band).

  6. 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. 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 ...
