  1. Compact Ultra-Wideband Target Identification System

    SBC: Crossfield Technology Llc            Topic: AF05012

    Crossfield proposes a high dynamic range, ultra-wideband, receiver-digitizer that will enable implementation of a compact UWB target identification system for the detection and location of targets and weapons concealed behind walls or foliage or hidden on a person. The design features an ultra-wide bandwidth, high dynamic range sampler developed by Picosecond Pulse Labs, followed by a track-and-ho ...

  2. Multifunctional Design of Load Bearing Antenna Structure for Small UAVs

    SBC: GENEVA AEROSPACE, INC.            Topic: AF05T019

    Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAVs) have demonstrated their value in military Surveillance, Reconnaissance, and Intelligence operations as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). While small UAVs have demonstrated their value in the warfighting environment, their size, weight, and power constraints somewhat limit their mission footprints to small payload applications such as video surveillan ...

  3. Multi-IMmmunotoxicity Assay System (MIMAS)

    SBC: GENEXPRESS INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: AF05076

    GeneXpress Informatics, Inc. (GXI) proposes to develop a Multi-IMmunotoxicity Assay System (MIMAS) based upon the Luminex Corporation (Austin, TX) xMAP system, a flexible analyzer based on the principles of flow cytometry. The proposed MIMAS will utilize three core technologies. The first is the Luminex xMAP microspheres, a family of 100 fluorescently dyed polystyrene microspheres that act as bo ...

  4. Technologies for In Situ Interrogation of Damage States in Structural Materials

    SBC: GLOBAL CONTOUR LTD.            Topic: AF05136

    The purpose of this SBIR Phase project is to develop a self-powering low-power consuming wireless active sensor architecture that will enable quantification of specific degradation states, failure modes, and usage conditions of structural components that simulates vehicle-operating conditions in harsh environments. Under this proposed SBIR project, the aggressive harsh environment operating active ...

  5. Multistage Electromagnetic and Laser Launch Systems for Affordable, Rapid Access to Space

    SBC: HEM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T001

    The need to significantly reduce the cost of launching micro-satellites into space has led to interest and development of several technologies to include multistage electromagnetic launchers and laser beam propulsion. However, these specific systems have a lot of components which need to be integrated to produce an efficient, cost-effective system. These components must also be capable of handlin ...

  7. Real-time monitoring of SWNT nucleation and growth in laser oven reactor

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: AF05T005

    An innovative and highly patented Ion Mobility orthogonal Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer (IM-oTOF MS) will characterize SWNT (single wall nanotube) growth in a laser oven reactor. Time evolution of the size distributions of carbon and metal catalyst cluster growth (either free or attached to nanotubes) as well as the ratio of cluster to tubular carbon forms will be measured both within the plasm ...

  8. Thermal Barrier Coating Life Determination

    SBC: KARTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05179

    Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are widely being used in gas-turbine engines to thermally protect metal components such as turbine blades from hot combustion gases. One of the primary concerns of using TBC as a protective coating is its long term durability. Premature failure of TBCs during service can expose the bare metal to dangerously hot gases leading to material failure. Failure to remove cr ...

  9. Reliability Centered Maintenance Scheduler (RCMS) Tool

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04184

    The goal of this effort is to develop, demonstrate, and successfully deploy a genetic algorithm-based, reliability centered maintenance (RCM) optimization technology suite to help users maximize propulsion system availability while simultaneously minimizing life cycle cost. Unlike on-condition maintenance (OCM), which involves repairs or replacements driven by policy (e.g., periodic maintenance s ...
