  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. Standardized Hardware Independent Framework for Active Sensing

    SBC: SAMRAKSH COMPANY, THE            Topic: SB082033

    Networks of short-range wireless sensors can yield cost-effective solutions in diverse military and commercial settings, especially where occlusions render long-range sensors operationally ineffective. The current state-of-the-art in application design, however, falls short of realizing cost-effectiveness. We propose to address this problem via an open framework of sensing, high efficiency commu ...

  3. Affordable Lightweight Electronic Packaging Materials

    SBC: Cast Metal Composites            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to develop and demonstrate a low-cost, high thermal conductivity, low mass density material for use in electronic packaging. Target material characteristics are: less than aluminum heat sinks, thermal conductivity at least 200 W/m-k, and mass density less than aluminum. To address this objective, Cast Metal Composites, Inc. will produce lightweight, high ...

  4. Solid State Growth of Advanced Ceramic Single Crystals

    SBC: CERONE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed experimental program demonstrates the technical feasibility of growing single crystals of technologically important ceramics by the solid state method. The proposed method relies on discontinuous grain growth which is often regarded as undesirable and deleterious during the sintering of many ceramics. In order to demonstrate the technical feasibility and versatility of the solid sta ...

  6. A Novel Electrochemical Machining Process for Hard Passive Alloys

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate a novel process for electrochemical machining nickel superalloys and other hard, passive alloys. Nickel-based superalloys are widely used in various industries, such as aerospace and automative industries. However, nickel superalloys are difficult-to-cut materials. Traditional mechanical methods failed to machine these sup ...

  7. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082055

    Energy Focus has envisioned a Generation 2 berth light LED system that incorporates an illumination spectrum consistent with the latest research in spectrally tuned adjustment and resetting of circadian rhythms. Research shows that the human eye contains specialized receptors for 420nm-560nm light which signal the body to suppress melatonin production. In the absence of this light, the body is si ...

  8. Explosion-Proof Solid State Lighting Fixture for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082054

    The project will develop a solid-state alternative to the inefficient, excessively hot and maintenance-intensive incandescent explosion-proof lighting fixtures used by the Navy. Solid-State Lighting using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) is now technically feasible but several difficult challenges remain to be overcome in order to deploy them in certain Navy applications. To achieve the long lifeti ...
