Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)SBC: Northwest Uld, Inc. Topic: N10AT001
Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems proposes using our purpose built heavy fuel engine designed and built in the USA for small unmanned aerial systems in the tier 2 & 3 class. We will be adding a lightweight ceramic material set combined with FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and heavy fuel atomizer (IRAD Project) to create a lightweight engine for a SUAS or STUAS class UAVs. The Ceramic material set is ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation Topic: AF09BT39
This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Data Flux Systems Inc. Topic: N10AT039
We propose to design, develop, implement, simulate, and demonstrate an autonomous control and sensing system for the safe vertical landing of autonomous aerial cargo delivery system (ACDS). The landing site is expected to be unprepared mountain sides with slopes up to 15 degrees and rough terrain containing rocks and brush. We also plan to reduce the amount of ground equipment required to operate ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Five Stones Research Corporation Topic: A10AT002
Sensor development researchers and engineers have perpetually sought novel methods to reduce sensor size and improve performance. Continued miniaturization of sensors through micromachining has enabled novel applications and introduced new paradigms for engineered systems to interact with the world. The challenge has always been to improve performance while continually reducing size. In the cur ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC. Topic: AF08T015
Recent years have seen a shift in threats to US national security. Today increasing focus for national security is management of terrorist activities. Deliberately exposing a civilian population to chemicals and explosives to cause harm represents a looming terrorist threat. Early detection and identification is a difficult but essential element to minimizing the threat. The Seacoast Science/U ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF08T001
Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording material system without the use of high voltage. We have ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: EDEN PARK ILLUMINATION, INC. Topic: AF08T012
ABSTRACT: EDEN PARK ILLUMINATION, INC. and the University of Illinois have formed a team to pursue the demonstration and commercialization of large arrays of microcavity plasmas capable of producing white light panels with luminous efficacies above 30 lumens/W. This proposed project will demonstrate the ability of arrays of microplasmas to yield flat lamps of high efficiency, luminance, and col ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC. Topic: AF10BT27
ABSTRACT: The proposed research will demonstrate feasibility of a high temperature insulating, load bearing thermal protection system (TPS) using a hybrid composite technology. This program will incorporate a hierarchically porous ceramic core material in a sandwich structure with a conventional polymer matrix composite (PMC) and ceramic matrix composite (CMC) to fabricate an enhanced TPS. This m ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TREX ENTERPRISES CORPORATION Topic: N08T021
Remote ocean instrumentation often relies on floating buoys with sensors to acquire time series measurements such as ambient noise, acoustic tracking or communications. The operating lifetime of small remote buoys is limited by batteries (often to 12 - 24 hrs), and recharging is so inconvenient or impractical that many small sonobuoys are designed to scuttle themselves after about a day. The assoc ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Tunable Polarization Insensitive Digital Fiber Optic Wavelength Converter with Built-In Test CapabilitySBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: N08T012
A fully functional widely tunable wavelength converter prototype operating from -40C to 100C at 2.5-10 Gbps, in a 5mm tall package, will be developed.STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
