  1. 3D Printed Microscale Radiation Shield

    SBC: NEXGENSEMI CORPORATION            Topic: MDA17012

    Over the past 30 years, additive manufacturing has evolved from printing layers of 3D bonded plastic coated paper to create 3D rapid prototyping objects maturing to sophisticated rapid manufacturing that can directly sinter 3D metal parts using high power, high speed lasers, known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering.Current Radiation Hardened (RH) shields are made with high density and hardness materi ...

  2. 3D Printed Microscale Radiation Shield for Microelectronics

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA17012

    The purpose of this proposal is to develop an additive manufacturing process capable of printing radiation blocking material around a microelectronic component. The goal of the radiation shield is to mitigate single event effects from a linear energy transfer (LET) > 20 [MeV-cm2]/mg particle and reduce radiation dose rate by 25%. During Phase I, Triton Systems proposes to prove the feasibility of ...

  3. 3D Printed Microscale Radiation Shielding

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA17012

    State-of-the-art COTS microelectronics are often found to be susceptible to radiation and systems are required to be redesigned with a new electronic piece-part or multiple kilogram metal shielding.These modifications increase weight, size, costs, and schedule to the program. Space Micro will design radiation shields based on our modeling/simulation tools and thenleverage existing commercially ava ...

  4. 3D Printing Magnetic Circuit Components for Hall Effect Thrusters

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: Z10

    The magnetic topography in Hall effect thrusters (HETs) plays an important role in focusing the electrons and controlling the plasma discharge which in turns governs the thruster performance.   The magnetic circuit components constitute more than half of the thruster mass.  To produce low-mass thrusters, the design of the magnetic circuit needs to be optimized. The advanced magnetic ...

  5. 3D Stereo Binocular Head Mounted Display (HMD) Technology for Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Aircraft and Simulation

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF121027

    ABSTRACT: Stereo symbology has promise as a method to help declutter the vast amount of information presented to fighter pilots and to call their attention to important information that may get lost among all the other information they are asked to process. Stereo graphics and imagery have benefited molecular modeling, medical visualization microscopy, and engineering design. What has not been s ...

  6. 3D Tomographic Scanning Microwave Microscopy with Nanometer Resolution

    SBC: Alcatera LLC            Topic: A17AT008

    Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) is a technique used to detect near-field interaction when a sample is rater-scanned by a probe. Example include atomic force microscope (AFM) and scanning tunneling microscope (STM). It offers nanometric and atomic image resolution. In this field, an emerging technique, Near-Field Scanning Microwave Microscopy (SMM), utilizes microwave evanescent waves to attain the ...

  7. 6DOF Sensing & Dynamic Impact Recorder for Measurement of Ejection Event Biodynamics

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF181003

    Despite advances in ejection seat design and injury mitigation, crew protection can likely be improved with better characterization of this hazardous environment during actual ejection events.Measurement of head/neck 6DOF motion in this environment has unique challenges.An ultra-low power system requires sensing deep sleep and idle states until a threshold is reached indicating an actual ejection ...

  8. A 100 W, V-Band Elliptical Beam Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF141193

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a 100 W TWT for operation in the 71-76 GHz band. The design will be compatible with space qualification for operation in a geostationary earth orbit (GEO) satellite platform. The performance of the TWT will be optimized to support 12/4 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) with 30 dB suppression and no more than 3 dB backoff. We propose to use a rectangular circuit ...

  9. A 5 W, 700 GHz Gyrotron for Scattering Diagnostics in Burning Plasmas

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 21a

    As the fusion science research advances towards the demonstration of practical reactors for commercial adoption there is a growing need to develop diagnostic systems for monitoring various plasma parameters in real time for control and shaping of the plasma density and profile. Recent, experiments have demonstrated the potential of a High-k Scattering system for studying turbulence physics studies ...

  10. A Bioactive Nanofibrous Sewing Cuff for Treatment of Cardiac Valvular Disease

    SBC: BIOSURFACES, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY Cardiac valve repair or replacement is indicated when progression of degenerative disease or bacterial infection of the native valve results in valvular dysfunction, thereby impacting cardiac output. Both procedures require the use of a woven or knitted polyester material with an internal reinforcement (Teflon, silicone or metal) to either stabilize the native valve (annuloplasty r ...
