  2. Long-Life Compact High-Voltage Source For Neutron Generator Integration

    SBC: STARFIRE INDUSTRIES LLC            Topic: HR001119S003511

    There is a need for small SWaP-C portable neutron generators for DoD and industrial applications such as neutron and gamma radiographic imaging and directed high-energy neutrons (>6MeV) to penetrate objects for active interrogation. Electrostatic DC acceleration is commonly used for x-ray and portable neutron generators on order of 100kVs with low cost and maintenance needs. There is opportunity t ...

  3. Slender Dielectric Elastomer Fibers For Artificial Muscles

    SBC: ATSP Innovations, Inc.            Topic: HR001119S003519

    Dielectric Elastomers (DE) are an attractive actuator material due to large actuation strains, the ability to be formed into a variety of actuator configurations, millisecond-scale response times, and high actuation forces. Currently, actuation voltages are unattractively high due to high thickness in the DE layer – moderate actuation voltages can be achieved with reduction in the tube wall thic ...

  4. Natural Rubber Production

    SBC: American Sustainable Rubber Company, LLC            Topic: ST18C001

    Rubber is pervasive in our economy, with over 50,000 products requiring natural rubber (NR), including military grade tires. Yet significant global shortfalls are projected. Rubber dandelion (Taraxacum kok-saghyz) produces natural rubber (cis-1,4, -polyisoprene) in root latex vessels (laticifers) almost identical to rubber from the tropical rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). Problem: Cost-effective ...

  5. AlGaN Based Solar-Blind Avalanche Photo Detectors and Arrays

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: ST18C003

    It is here proposed to demonstrate AlGaN based solar-blind avalanche photodiodes and arrays operating in both linear and Geiger mode that would be suitable for replacing photomultiplier tube technology bio-agent detection, missile warning systems, and hostile fire identification. These objectives will be reached through a comprehensive R&D thrust in the areas of semiconductor material epitaxial gr ...

  7. SYNERGEO: Cooperative Reconfigurable Persistent Geostationary Support Platform

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: SB161007

    CU Aerospace, along with the University of Illinois wishes to propose SYNERGEO,a geostationary platform that is assembled from sub-modules by the DARPA Phoenix robot. Each module complies with the DARPA POD standard. With an initial launch of 4 modules, up to three payloads can be supported. With additional core platform modules, the number of unique payloads increases exponentially. Further, the ...
