Ultra Fine Grain Steel Alloys by Severe Plastic DeformationSBC: TRANSITION45 TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Topic: A10AT001
This STTR program proposes to exploit the tremendous benefits that could be offered by the development of ultra fine grain steel alloys for application to the production of high performance components for military rotorcraft applications. A severe plastic deformation technology based on isothermal forging technologies will be explored here. The goal is to demonstrate a practical, production leve ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseArmy
Ultrahigh Efficiency Quantum Dot Multi-photon Photovoltaics using Nipi Lateral ArchitectureSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: AF09BT20
Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Ultra Low Drive Voltage Electro-Optic ModulatorSBC: Freedom Photonics LLC Topic: ST081014
The development of compact, ultra-low drive voltage optical phase modulators is a critical key component for passive antenna remoting applications, a strategic area, part of a number of current and upcoming DARPA initiatives. With the development of sufficiently low V-pi modulators, passive front-ends can be constructed with a low figure even for a moderate optical pumping power. The combination o ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth AtmosphereSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: AF08T019
The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, real gas effects, nonequilibrium chemistry, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with automatic domain decomposition for a wide range of Air Force applic ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
VLSI Compatible Silicon-on-Insulator Plasmonic ComponentsSBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF08BT18
This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop ultradense, low-power plasmonic integration components and devices for on-chip manipulation and processing of optical signals. Both passive and active components will be studied. Detailed performance predictions will be obtained through finite element modeling (FEM) of the harmonic Maxwell’s equations. The FEM provides detai ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Wide Area Video Motion Blur EliminationSBC: ObjectVideo Topic: ST081007
This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase-II project will design, develop and integrate an effective and efficient motion blur elimination algorithm to Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance - Imaging System (ARGUS-IS) system by optimizing and implementing the algorithm proposed during the Phase-I investigation to FPGA. In addition, an image enhancement toolkit for ground station ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Wideband Metamaterial Antennas Integrated into Composite StructuresSBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc. Topic: N10AT021
A team led by NextGen Aeronautics Inc., and working with San Diego State University proposes the development of redundant wideband antennas that are embedded in composite armor structures The planned work builds upon the team’s extensive prior experience in conformal load-bearing antenna structures (CLAS), antenna design, and metamaterials. The proposed antenna is a combination of concepts that ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Windable Lithium-ion Conducting Ceramic ElectrolytesSBC: Chemat Technology, Inc. Topic: A09AT011
Lithium-air battery consists of a lithium anode electrochemically coupled to atmospheric oxygen through an air cathode. The major advantages of lithium air batteries are that air cathode active material, oxygen, is not stored internal to cell system and lithium anode being extremely lightweight metal with a highest theoretical specific energy density. This energy density is well comparable with t ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseArmy
