  3. Calculation and Testing of Alternating Current (AC) Losses in Coated Conductors and the Development of Practical Conductors and Coils for Operational

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: AF03T023

    The use of coated HT superconductors in the ac windings of electrical machines offers the possibility of much lighter electrical devices. To use these conductors at proposed high frequencies, present “as-manufactured” conductor geometries must be modified to reduce their ac loss by using fine filaments and other topologies). Equally important are more global winding losses requiring suitable ...

  4. Fuel Processor Hardware Components For Deployable Fuel Cell Power Generation

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: AF05119

    The objectives for this SBIR Phase I study are to establish feasibility for deployable logistic-fuel processor to produce a clean hydrogen gas (sulfur free) from JP-8 fuel. The processor is a portable laboratory or beta-site (off-site) non-thermal plasma (NTP) cell. The portable NTP cell is believed capable of hydrogen gas extraction from logistic-fuels such as gasoline, diesel, JP-8 and petrol ...

  5. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Boron has significant potential as a high energy density ingredient in ramjet propellants and fuels. This is due to boron's high heat of combustion and low atomic weight. For a ramjet ducted rocket, theoretical volume specific impulses of 1600- 1800 sec g cm-3 have been reported for a fuel rich boron solid propellant, 45 % greater than the best hydrocarbon composition. Boron's high ignition tem ...

  6. Design Concepts for CMC Leading Edges with Embedded Metallic Heat Pipes

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: AF05247

    This effort explores and assesses the options available for refractory composite leading edges cooled by embedded metallic heat pipes. Currently, the heat pipe cooled leading edges (HPCLE's) being investigated are fabricated primarily from refractory superalloys. However, even the best superalloys have a temperature limit of ~2400°F, which places substantial limitations on the possible geometry ...

  7. High Repetition Rate Pulsed Power Generators

    SBC: FOCIA, RONALD J            Topic: AF04009

    This Phase II proposal outlines an ambitious research and development effort the objectives of which are to provide a high-voltage pulsed power generator that is compact, portable, reliable, exhibits a fast rise or fall time, and is capable of being command fired at a high pulse repetition rate (PRR) with low jitter. Another objective of this effort is to design and realize a feedback control sys ...

  8. Solid State Ultra-Wideband Microwave Source

    SBC: FOCIA, RONALD J            Topic: AF05007

    This Phase I SBIR proposal outlines an effort that will advance the state of the art in high repetition rate solid state pulse generators. For this effort, we have assembled a team of key people with direct experience in high peak power solid state pulse generator design, measurement and characterization of fast transient waveforms, and semiconductor interconnection and packaging techniques. The ...

  9. Efficient Interaction Methodologies for Simulating the Scattering from Electrically Large Objects and Scenes

    SBC: RM ASSOC.            Topic: AF05220

    In this proposal RMA describes two fresh new approaches, based on the Characteristic Basis Function Method (CBFM), as a way to handle the radiation and scattering problems of interest in this project. We offer two versions of the CBFM, one for the frequency and the other for the time domain, based on the MoM and FDTD formulations. In contrast to the Fast Multipole Method (FMM), the CBMOM solves la ...

  10. Hybrid Kalman Particle Filter for Ground Target Tracking

    SBC: Sigtem Technology, Inc            Topic: AF04204

    We propose to continue our Phase I efforts by demonstrating the class of hybrid Kalman particle filters (HKPF) for tracking ground targets on road in Phase II. In the proposed formulation, the road network is represented with one-dimensional (1D) models. This 1D modeling simplifies the target kinematics considerably and reduces the size of the target state space by up to ½, which directly transla ...
