  1. High Specific Power, Electrostatically Bonded, Ultra-thin Gaas

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ASTROPOWER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH PERFORMANCE, ULTRA-THIN ELECTROSTATICALLY BONDED GaAs SOLAR CELL WITH COPLANAR BACK CONTACTS. THE INNOVATIVE DESIGN INCORPORATES LIGHT TRAPPING, ADHESIVELESS COVER SLIDE BONDING, AND ELIMINATES GRID SHADING. THIS NOVEL DEVICE WILL EXHIBIT INCREASED EFFICIENCY AND SPECIFIC POWER DUE TO THE HIGHER OPEN CIRCUIT VOLTAGE AND SHORT CIRCUIT CURRENT OBTAI ...

  3. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08026

    This proposal will supply to NAVAIR and to rotorcraft manufacturing companies the emerging solution to their fabrication needs as it relates to the production of Rotor Blade Spars. The process and machine concept developed in Phase I will provide NAVAIR and the rotocraft manufacturing companies an automated solution to spar manufacturing. This will enable: • Low part manufacturing cost • High ...

  4. Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08135

    Accudyne proposes a SBIR program, endorsed by Sikorsky, Cytec Engineered Materials, and NASA-LaRC, to develop a cost-effective thermoplastic automated tow placement (ATP) process and demonstrate it by fabricating and testing a complex contoured skin (Phase 1) and a CH-53K rotorcraft lower cabin or ramp skin (Phase 2). The process employs in situ consolidation, avoiding the autoclave. The targete ...

  5. LIGHTWEIGHT, LIGHT-TRAPPED, THIN GAAS SOLAR CELL FOR SPACECRAFT APPLICATIONS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ASTROPOWER IS PROPOSING THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH PERFORMANCE, THIN LIGHT TRAPPING GAAS SOLAR CELL FOR ADVANCED SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. A THIN DEVICE LEADS TO HIGHER PERFORMANCE IN TERMS OF OPEN CIRCUIT VOLTAGE, RADIATION RESISTANCE, AND SPECIFIC POWER. IN A THIN DEVICE, THE INCORPORATION OF LIGHT TRAPPING TO EXTEND THE OPTICAL PATH LENGTH PERMITS GREATER CURRENT GENERATIC THAN CA ...

  6. Low Cost, Low Weight Composite Structure using Out-Of-Autoclave (OOA) Technology

    SBC: Kubota Research Associates            Topic: N08030

    This SBIR Phase I proposal will demonstrate the manufacture of a OOA composite using infrared radiation and compaction technology, an innovative resin film, and a resin film infusion process to produce aerospace quality thermoplastic composite. A low concentration of IR absorber is blended into a resin polymer and cast as a thin film. The resin film is interleaved with a carbon fabric reinforcemen ...

  7. Moded Configuration Management and Validation

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: MDA07040

    We propose to develop Open Service Gateway Initiative (OSGi) enhancements for configuration management and validation to enable assured switching between operational and test modes. We will design a moded configuration management and validation suite that extends public-domain OSGi implementations with capabilities for trusted bundles, XML-based device inventories, and mode switching and configura ...

  9. Nano-BiCMOS Night Vision Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08008

    Night vision capability is one of the most important battlefield advantages of the U.S. military, especially in today’s asymmetric warfare. The Gen III night vision goggles in service today is based on the vacuum tube technology with a semiconductor photo cathode, resulting in limitations on view angle, size, manufacturing cost and device operating lifetime. The requirement of special training i ...

  10. NOVEL CERAMIC/METAL COMPOSITES FOR ARMOR APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Lanxide Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CERAMICS HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE IN THE DEFEAT OF A WIDE RANGE OF KINETIC ENERGY (KE) THREATS. HOWEVER, THE USE OF CERAMICS IN ARMORED VEHICLES HAS BEEN LIMITED DUE IN MOST PART TO THEIR HIGH COST. CERAMIC PARTICULATE REINFORCED METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES (MMCS) PRODUCED BY PRESSURELESS LIQUID METAL INFILTRATION ARE INEXPENSIVE RELATIVE TO MONOLITHIC CERAMICS DUE TO THE LOWER COST OF THE ...
