An Immersed Boundary Framework for Topology Optimization of Nonlinear Thermoelastic Structures with Internal RadiationSBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC Topic: AF17AT015
Thermoelastic structures pose a critical challenge to designers due to the inherent design dependence of thermal loading on structural thickness. This is further exacerbated by structural nonlinearity due to in-plane, and more importantly, the out-of-plane bending deformation that further increases the effective loading on the structure. During Phase I of this project, we have added significant ne ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Impact Technologies Topic: AF08T008
Impact Technologies, in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Rochester Institute of Technology and the Boeing Company, is proposing to complete the development, testing and evaluation of a novel biologically-inspired Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) conceptualized in Phase I and capable of agile and high endurance flight operations in dense and cluttered urban environments. Phase I a ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Nanoscience Solutions, LLC Topic: AF11BT24
ABSTRACT: This Phase II proposal will capitalize on the success of Phase I to further develop stable and optically efficient fluorescent particles that absorb and emit light in the infrared part of the spectrum and lack any visible light emissions. The specific goals of Phase II will be to further research infrared nanoparticles to increase their brightness with an emphasis on production scalabi ...STTR Phase II 2014 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Plasmonics Inc. Topic: AF17AT022
As both the response speed and sensitivity of thermal imagers have improved significantly over recent years, new IRSP systems are needed to provide greater dynamic range and faster response speeds. Addressing these issues, as well as producing a cost effective and modular IRSP system will be critical for providing quality scene projection for the next generation of infrared imagers. To address the ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INNOVATIVE AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES, LLC Topic: AF08T014
Our team proposes to develop, test, and commercialize a Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery APparatus (MAVTRAP). This system operates by deploying an instrumented MAV capture device attached via a tether system from a mothership unmanned air vehicle (UAV). The instrumented MAV capture device contains an integrated avionics suite. Our team will determine and control the precise mother ship UAV loi ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Plasmonics Inc. Topic: AF10BT30
ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC. Topic: N12AT015
Virtual EM is proposing a solution for achieving electrically small high-efficiency VHF transmit antennas suitable for use on medium size Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). In the proposed approach, maximum use of the UAVs airframe for the antenna improves radiation efficiency while dynamic reconfiguration of the antenna aperture provides frequency tuning and hence lower noise floor. Feasibility has ...STTR Phase II 2014 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Power Photonic Topic: A09AT005
We propose the development of a system for measuring the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices (SLS). Mid wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) detectors based on SLS technology show promise due to the large and inexpensive focal plane arrays that can be fabricated. The devices are held back though, by excessive dark current, which is related to a poor minority car ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: ESENSORS INC. Topic: AF08BT02
Esensors, with SUNY at Buffalo and SUNY at Albany as a subcontractor, will simulate, fabricate, experimentally investigate, evaluate, and deliver aprototype of a new adaptive IR photodetector based on advanced quantum dot (QD) structures. The detector’s operating principle is based on a new concept of the photoelectron lifetime tunable via adjustable potential barriers in QD structures. The phot ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc. Topic: AF08T029
We are proposing to develop a highly parallel, rapid prototyping system for the manufacture of microfluidic devices. In this phase II proposal we will build a complete system for making such devices for continued research on fieldable microfluidic systems for use in the military, and in hospitals. The project will also allow manufacturing in widely different materials, and structures, without an ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
