  1. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

  2. Generic, Multi-Platform, Real-Time Data Monitor

    SBC: FAAC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Today's weapon systems and engagement doctrine are highly complex. Attempting to understand and glean important details from tabular data, end game results, and 2-D graphs is difficult. Providing a 3-D real-time representation consolidates all availablekinematic information into a single presentation. This enables observation of engineering level information in the physical realm by viewing actual ...

  4. Munition Deployed Microprobes

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Freestyle Technologies, Inc. proposes to perform exploratory research in the area of munition-deployed microprobes. The baseline microprobe will consist of simple acoustic and sesmic sensors and will be deployed by an autonomous munition at locations ofinterest. Once deployed, the microprobes will form an ad hoc wireless network and passively monitor for targets. The microprobes will signal the ...

  6. Multi-sensor Data Exploitation Capability

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, IDEAS, & SERVICES C            Topic: N/A

    This contract will develop and demonstrate the capability to capture and process data from any sensor without apriori knowledge of the sensor or its model. We will develop the software libraries to process sensor data captured in the format standarddeveloped in phase I. The software libraries will be integrated into the Joint Sensor Integration Fusion Testbed (JSIFT) at AFRL/SNAR and demonstrate ...

  8. IMPROVEMENT OF PENETRATOR PERFORMANCE BY INCREASING/ ENGINEERING CASE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

    SBC: MALLTECH, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Achieving a combination of high level of strength and toughness in metal alloys has always been the goal of metallurgical research, particularly true in development of construction steel alloys. Significant advances have been made in this area in the pasttwenty years, culminating with introduction of alloys AF1410 and AerMet100. Unfortunately the enhancement of properties was typically obtained th ...

  9. Nano-engineered Coatings Based on Functionalized Silsesquioxanes

    SBC: MAYATERIALS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Silanization is used commonly to form high quality interfaces between metals and coatings by treating surfaces with silanes RSiCl3 or RSi(OR)3 in a sol-gel like process. R can be many different functional groups ranging from glycidyl epoxy to aniline.These same silanes condense under sol-gel conditions to produce cubic silsesquioxanes [RSiO1.5]8 that have a rigid silica core and multiple functiona ...

  10. High Heat Flux Laser Diode and/or Solid State Laser Cooling for Airborne and/or Spaceborne Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: MICROVECTION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Diode laser present one of the most challenging thermal problems in industry. The small footprint and very high power levels combine to create extremely high heat fluxes in the vicinity of the diode. Tese heat flux levels raise the diode temperature,leading to lower lasing efficiency, wavelength shifts, and reduced diode lifetime. The cooling problem becomes even more difficult when combined wi ...
