  1. High Energy Density Hydrogen Delivery System

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N10AT030

    The US Navy requires advanced power systems for emerging autonomous underwater vehicle platforms, and hydrogen/oxygen fuel cells have been identified as a suitable replacement for the costly and hazardous primary lithium batteries currently in use. Giner Electrochemical Systems, LLC (GES) and Purdue have teamed to demonstrate a novel chemical hydride fueling solution that will enable onboard hydro ...

  2. Microwave meander-line microstrip ferrite phase shifters tunable with low power drives

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: N101075

    Modern active electronically scanned phased array radars provide outstanding capability but are unfortunately expensive. To a large degree, this results from the need for power and low noise amplifiers at each antenna element. A promising alternative architecture shares the amplifiers among many elements and thus requires a phase shifter at each element. This choice imposes challenging power handl ...

  3. Innovative Passive Magnetic Thrust Bearings for High-Speed Turbomachinery


    In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposed 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 generation ...

  4. Cost-Effective PiezoCrystal Transducer Assembly Technologies

    SBC: Materials Systems Inc.            Topic: N101092

    PiezoCrystal materials are compelling candidates for high performance electromechanical actuation devices due to the demonstrated extraordinary material properties. Navy sonar systems used in undersea warfare would benefit from these materials in providing more compact and efficient sensors with increased bandwidth and sensitivity. However, 15 years after the initial discovery only a limited numbe ...

  5. Advanced Spectral Signature Models for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09032

    The design of space-based optical sensors for detection, identification, and tracking of threat missile launches relies heavily on plume signature simulation models. The development of very capable plume signature models traces back ~50 years. However, because of the complexity of the underlying physics and ever-increasing requirements for improved accuracy and speed, higher spatial resolution, a ...

  6. Grain boundary engineering of low loss ferrite cores required for high efficiency power electronics components

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: N093209

    The development of switch mode power supplies is constantly challenging the ferrite industry to produce new, high-quality ferrite cores capable of operating at increasingly higher frequencies and low loss. Furthermore, it is important to reduce the power losses of ferrite cores used in transformers in order to maximize output power and efficiency. This program"s technical objectives are to develop ...

  7. Non-Inductive Control Surface Actuator


    DSM demonstrated an inexpensive, non-inductive actuation mechanism that can be used in a canard actuation system (CAS) without adding noise or bias to the measurements of onboard magnetometers during guidance and fuzing operations of miniaturized precision munitions. The Piezo actuator based Phase I prototype met program specifications and is ready for a Phase II opportunity.

  8. Copper Graphite Composite Passive Thermal Control for High Density Interconnect PCB's

    SBC: METAL MATRIX CAST COMPOSITES, LLC (DBA M            Topic: N093209

    Thermal management, CTE control, and mechanical stability are critical for lightweight aerospace/defense printed circuit board (PCB) applications. Current materials for PCB"s such as copper and graphite epoxy laminates with copper foil cladding do not adequately address thermal requirements, reliability, and weight reduction in a single material. New materials must offer higher thermal conductivit ...

  9. Material Identification using Reflectivity Kernels

    SBC: PROMETHEUS INC            Topic: N093198

    The goal of this project is the discrimination, classification and identification of submerged objects of interest in unfriendly or hostile environments. Our approach to discrimination of targets from clutter and decoys is based on estimating their material invariant reflectivity kernels. We have developed processing algorithms and demonstrated the discrimination of materials from SONAR returns un ...
