  1. Carbon Nanotube Plasma Limiter

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06034

    The enabling solid state semiconductor technology in modern electronics and radar systems increases their vulnerability to the effects of high power, fast rise-time EMP, HPM, and UWB pulses. In recent years, significant advances in the technology used to produce these pulses have been made in the United States and abroad, increasing the need for effective protection against these threats. Howeve ...

  2. Intelligent Contol for Automated Vehicles: A Decision-Aiding Method for Coordintion of Multiple Uninhabited Tactical Aircraft

    SBC: Veloxiti            Topic: N/A

    An open problem confronting Uninhabited Tactical Aircraft (UTA) is the control concept for their successful operation in combat. Unlike reconnaissance UAVs, it will not be practical to operate UTAs with fully pre-programmed missions nor will it be possible to continuosly fly with them from remote cockpits. A new control paradigm is needed. One that supports a full range of intervention from dir ...

  3. Game World

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corp            Topic: SB072012

    American schools do not produce enough scientists and technicians. Without this human infrastructure, America will lose its position of economic, cultural and military leadership. Today, record immigration fills the gap. America cannot depend indefinitely on a favorable global brain drain. American education must improve. A game-based learning environment could help. Students can develop new skil ...

  4. Indium Gallium Nitride (InGaN) Solar Cell

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: SB082052

    This phase I development will provide a low defect InGaN p-n junction tuned to 2.6 eV. The characteristics of the junction will be high electron and hole concentrations, low defect density and no phase separation in the InGaN. This will be accomplished using a revolutionary epitaxial technique, combined with lattice-matched substrates and state of the art device fabrication.

  5. Metal Hydride Energy Sources for Very High Altitude Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: SB082064

    Lithium metal possess a high specific capacity of 3860 Ah/kg, and can provide high voltages in electrochemical cells, thus creating the basis for high specific energy batteries. However, batteries based on lithium metal suffer several drawbacks, due to the poor morphology of redeposited lithium and possibility of dendrite growth, which can short circuit the battery and pose safety hazards. We pro ...

  9. Cryo-composite Tank for HyperBAT

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: SB091013

    To achieve the high propellant mass fraction (PMF) required by future high energy propulsion systems, light-weight propellant tanks are essential. GTL’s Supra-tanks™ can approach the theoretical performance limit for carbon fiber pressure vessels using cryogenic or room-temperature propellants. By combining the Blended Hybrid Laminate™ (BHL™) technology with aspects of the Highly Integra ...

  10. Integrated Remote Patient Care System

    SBC: Microdexterity Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MicroDexterity Systems was founded by Steve Charles, MD to develop systems for dexterity enhancement for microsurgery; a concept he originated in the mid 80's. Dexterity enhancement is a subset of tele-operation. The MDS mission statement was broadened in 1994 to address the problem of non-ferromagnetic tele-operation for intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging frequently called image guided ...
