SBC: KITWARE INC Topic: ST081009
The goal of BLUE is to identify the function or purpose of buildings using persistant surveillance video such as Constant Hawk or Angel Fire. In Phase 1, we developed preliminary algorithms demonstrating that functional recognition of buildings and other scene elements such as parking spots and doorways is possible, using both supervised and unsupervised techniques to define functional models of b ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
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: MICHIGAN AEROSPACE CORP Topic: AF09BT32
Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an optical MEMS based skin friction sensor specifically designed for hypersonic applications. This instrument will be capable of shear stress resolutions as small as 0.01 Pa, have a high dynamic range, and data rates in excess of 100 Hz. The sensor will be compact and tolerant of the extreme environmental conditions of hypersonic propulsion test f ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Microtech Instruments, Inc. Topic: AF08T009
The main objective of the proposed Phase II project is to leverage the technology of THz generation in resonantly-pumped quasi-phase-matched (QPM) GaAs structures, jointly developed by Stanford University and Microtech Instruments, Inc., and create a compact and power-efficient commercial THz source with a mW-level average power. This source will be continuously or step-tunable in the 0.5-3 THz ra ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force

The Phase I deliverable will be a physic-based model which represents a CMC gas turbine component concomitantly at the material level and the structural level. This model will be probabilistically analyzed to account for the uncertainties in material properties and the uncertainties in the size and impact velocities of possible foreign objects (FOD). A ceramic material must display sufficient capa ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Nastec, Inc. Topic: N10AT037
A unique type of air lubricated thrust bearing called a Wave Bearing is proposed to assist a rolling element bearing to carry the thrust load and to improve the bearing’s life when used in a micro gas turbine engine. The Wave Bearing technology will provide improved reliability, safety and life compared to rolling element bearings used alone, as well as to allow simplification of engine design a ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF08T001
Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording material system without the use of high voltage. We have ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Nico Technologies Corp. Topic: AF09BT36
The realization of materials with record mechanical and electrical properties is of paramount importance to the Air Force and other branches of the US Armed Forces. Layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly is capable of producing nanocomposite materials with record properties surpassing those made by many traditional composite preparation techniques. However the process is time consuming and typically yiel ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
