  1. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  2. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    The main objective of this program is to develop a new class of high performance hard magnetic materials that will maintain an energy product of 30 MGOe or greater at temperatures up to 450 °C. These novel magnetic materials are greatly needed for the "more electric" airplanes and space vehicle applications where a high operating temperature is a strict requirement. The approaches to be used for ...

  3. Large Area Millimeter Wave Dosimetry

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: OSD04H05

    Active Denial Systems are non-lethal, counter-personnel directed energy weapons that project focused energy beams in the millimeter-wave spectrum to induce an avoidance response and repel individuals without injury. Calibration of such weapons requires accurately measuring millimeter-wave flux density over large areas at distances corresponding to the range of ADS weapons. To ensure that the beam ...

  9. Calculation and Testing of Alternating Current (AC) Losses in Coated Conductors and the Development of Practical Conductors and Coils for Operational

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: AF03T023

    The use of coated HT superconductors in the ac windings of electrical machines offers the possibility of much lighter electrical devices. To use these conductors at proposed high frequencies, present “as-manufactured” conductor geometries must be modified to reduce their ac loss by using fine filaments and other topologies). Equally important are more global winding losses requiring suitable ...

  10. Fuel Processor Hardware Components For Deployable Fuel Cell Power Generation

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: AF05119

    The objectives for this SBIR Phase I study are to establish feasibility for deployable logistic-fuel processor to produce a clean hydrogen gas (sulfur free) from JP-8 fuel. The processor is a portable laboratory or beta-site (off-site) non-thermal plasma (NTP) cell. The portable NTP cell is believed capable of hydrogen gas extraction from logistic-fuels such as gasoline, diesel, JP-8 and petrol ...
