  1. Highly Efficient Smart Tanks for Hydrogen Storage

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    The commercial success of the Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles will require significant reductions in the cost of hydrogen fueling.Current fueling stations require pre-cooling equipment that chills the hydrogen to -40°C; this is needed to offset the temperature rise caused by compression during fueling and keep the polymer liner of the vehicle’s tank below its maximum operating temperature of 85?C.I ...

  3. Intelligent Plume Mapping Payload (IPMP)

    SBC: Deep Analytics LLC            Topic: AF18BT009

    With recent programs that enable the airborne launch and recovery of UAVs, there are opportunities to provide aerial threat assessment in difficult to deploy areas. A valuable enhancement to the airborne-deployed UAV system are sensors that detect invisible threats such as chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) weapons. The Intelligent Plume Mapping Payload, proposed by ...

  4. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  5. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...

  10. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation (RADARS)

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...
