  1. Flight Adaptive Blade for Optimum Rotor Response (FABFORR)

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A209

    While past research has demonstrated the utility and benefits to be gained with the application of advanced rotor system control concepts, none have been implemented to date on a production military or commercial rotorcraft. A key contributor to this fact is the inherent cost associated with installation and maintenance of these control systems, since many system designs require the replacement o ...

  2. Low-Noise, UV-to-SWIR Broadband Photodiodes for Large-Format Focal Plane Array Sensors

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: S105

    Broadband focal plane arrays, operating in UV-to-SWIR wavelength range, are required for atmospheric monitoring of greenhouse gases. Currently, separate image sensors are used for different spectral sub-bands: GaN for UV, Si for visible, and InGaAs for SWIR, requiring expensive component-level integration for hyper-spectral imaging. Also, the size of the InGaAs focal plane arrays is currently limi ...

  5. Advanced Cathode Electrolyzer (ACE)

    SBC: Infinity Fuel Cell and Hydrogen, Inc.            Topic: X601

    The proposed innovation is a static, cathode-fed, 2000 psi, balanced-pressure Advanced Cathode Electrolyzer (ACE) based on PEM electrolysis technology. It electrolyzes water vapor supplied to the hydrogen-evolving electrode and eliminates the need to circulate hydrogen and water on the cathode side of the cell. Innovations include the application of Infinity proprietary cell sealing technology to ...

  6. NUE- Novel Universal Ensemble Capability for Overset Grids

    SBC: JMSI INC.            Topic: S601

    Intelligent Light makers of the FieldView CFD/CAE Post-processing tool, proposes to develop NUE (pronounced noo-ae) - a Novel and Universal capability that manages an Ensemble of overset grid tools. NUE's assembly, flow solver and post-processing components accept grids from ANY grid generation package of ANY grid type to facilitate the ease of use of the overset grid methodology. Its components a ...

  8. Extreme Environment Damage Index and Accumulation Model for CMC Laminate Fatigue Life Prediction

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: A201

    Materials Research & Design (MR&D) is proposing in the SBIR Phase II an effort to develop a tool for predicting the fatigue life of C/SiC composite laminates, which incorporates mechanical loading at any minimum stress to maximum stress ratio (i.e., R value), at room and elevated temperatures, in either inert or oxidizing environments. The success of this effort would represent a significant stat ...

  9. Refractory Coated/Lined Low Density Structures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: S308

    The innovation in this proposed effort is the development of refractory coated or lined low density structures. Lightweight structures are desirable for space transportation vehicle systems in order to reduce launch costs, increase mission flexibility/efficiency, and add robustness with respect to the ability to add weight or additional materials to the mission with minimum sacrifice in performan ...

  10. Calibration of 3D Woven Preform Design Code for CMC Materials

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: A201

    Mechanical and thermal performance of CMC components benefit from low part count, integrally fabricated designs of 3D woven reinforcement. The advantages of these designs include the elimination for the need for post-fabrication mechanical attachment and the higher interlaminar properties offered by the through thickness paths of the fibers within the 3D preform architectures. The specific innova ...
