SBC: LEXITEK INC Topic: AF09BT34
Lexitek and U. Mass Lowell propose to develop novel laser nanostructured substrates for laser desorption ionization (LDI) that enables mass spectrometry (MS) without an interfering chemical matrix. Lexitek is developing these patented plasmonic devices for molecular sensing using surface enhanced detection techniques. Using a technique invented by U. Mass researchers, the devices are fabricated in ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel CapabilitiesSBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N10AT033
Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N10AT037
In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposes to use a passive, permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat gen ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: OSD09T002
Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAYFLOWER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY, INC. Topic: AF09BT12
Mayflower Communications has partnered with the Boston University Hearing Research Center to propose novel techniques for speech enhancement in reverberant environment based on advanced auditory modeling of higher-level processing in the human auditory brain. Speech enhancement or noise suppression has been an area of active research for well over three decades. State-of-the-art single-microphone ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Impedance-based Sensing Optimization & Algorithms for Visualization of Ship Hull Structural Health Monitoring DataSBC: METIS DESIGN CORP Topic: N10AT042
The implementation of structural health monitoring (SHM) systems into naval applications has been hindered due to component quantity, including sensors, power/communication cables, and acquisition/computation units, as well as data quality. Particularly for large-area applications such ship hulls, complexity of implied system infrastructure can be impractical, and data can be worthless with attenu ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Microscale, Inc. Topic: AF08BT08
Microscale, Inc. in collaborating with New Jersey Institute of Technology proposes to develop an innovative silicon nanomembrane mirror (SiNM) technology for adaptive optics by using a novel low cost and hierarchically-dimensioned multilevel SiNMs integration design.This proposed Phase I effort continues to bridge the gap between the present state of development of SiNM mirror technology and the p ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Nanolab, Inc Topic: AF09BT36
The goal of the proposed STTR is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a rapid, automated spray layer by layer process, developed by the Hammond group in MIT’s Department of Chemical Engineering, to create polyelectrolyte/carbon nanotube composites for Air Force applications at deposition rates superior to existing layer by layer techniques. This proposal will be led by NanoLab, Inc., a compa ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT02
Accurate and timely surveillance of objects in the near-Earth space environment is becoming increasingly critical to US national security. One of the main difficulties in this domain is efficiently and accurately modeling trajectories of the vast number of objects in orbit around the Earth. The orbital trajectory of a single object is typically modeled as a second-order system of equations which ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and ReconnaissanceSBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT11
Space surveillance is the component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data to track and identify space objects. While the propagation of the states of RSOs has been investigated extensively over the last fifty years, the correct propagation of their covariance or the more general (non-Gaussian) probability distribut ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
