  1. All-Fiber Infrared Raman Laser

    SBC: L2 Tech, Inc            Topic: AF083173

    In the Phase II program we will demonstrate a breadboard device of an innovative all-fiber infrared (IR) laser operating at selectable wavelengths in the 1.5 to 12 micron spectral region based on Stimulated Raman Scattering of hydrogen gas in an IR hollow-core photonic band-gap (PBG) fiber. The Raman laser is pumped by commercially available fiber laser at near-infrared wavelength. Its wavelength ...

  2. Visualization of Cross-Domain C2ISR Operations

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF093025

    Numerous studies indicate that existing C2ISR capabilities are not currently optimized. There is a need to modernize traditional C2ISR capabilities to promote agility in C2ISR processes by exposing data and visualizing data to make it accessible, visible and understandable throughout the AOC network. Currently the AOC is a system of systems that were designed individually, are not interoperable, ...

  3. AHigh Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    Internal combustion engines with power-to-weight ratios significantly higher than 1 Hp/lb which operate on low flash point fuels are enabling for powering Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Conventional Otto, Diesel and Wankel cycle engines even if constructed in advanced light-weight materials cannot meet the required power-to-weight and volume ratios and have high cost. A breakthrough in engine de ...

  4. A Plasma Process to Apply Refractory Metal Coatings to Continuous Lengths of Copper Alloy Rails

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT025

    High strength copper alloys are preferred as the base rails for railguns due to their combination of strength and electrical and thermal conductivity, but suffer damage due to high current densities, arcing, gouging, and exposure to molten aluminum armatures. A refractory metal/alloy coating on the copper base alloy is an attractive approach for increasing rail life if the refractory metal coating ...

  5. Pulse Current Assisted Heat Treatment for Impeller Disks

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A10147

    Advanced turboshaft engine impeller disks work at a high rotational speed at elevated temperatures which vary from the disk rim to its bore. Due to contact with combustion gases, the rim possesses a significantly greater temperature than the bore. This temperature gradient implies different requirements for the mechanical properties of the material in the rim and bore areas. A nickel based superal ...

  6. Low Cost Production of Transparent Spinel Domes Using Freeze Casting

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A08037

    This Phase II SBIR ARMY project proposes the development/optimization and preliminary scale up of 7” in diameter hemispherical spinel domes (3.5” radius, 0.18” wall thickness, 160 degree aperture) through the combination of freeze casting (FC) technology with unique nanopowder coating technology commercialized by MER (NC-Spinel™) for magnesium aluminate spinel (MgAl2O4) cer ...

  7. High Strength Spinel Windows with the Tailored Microstructure

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N102163

    This SBIR Phase I projects will develop magnesium aluminate spinel (MgAl2O4, referred as spinel from here forth) windows with strength of 350 MPa and Weibull modulus higher than 6. To produce the spinel with the strength of 350 MPa, the microstructure of the spinel will be tailored by controlling the processing parameters, such as impurities of spinel powder, agglomerates in spinel powder, amount ...

  8. A Light Weight Titanium Alloy Machine Gun Barrel with a Ceramic Liner

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N091004

    Current rapid fire guns used by the Marines overheat during sustained rapid firing. As a result they are subject to failure in combat situations placing the war fighter at risk. The use of a gun barrel with greater refractory capability than the current steel barrels would present a true solution to this problem. A ceramic lined gun barrel would have excellent resistance to failure from excessive ...

  9. Advanced AgO-Zn Battery with Wider Temperature Range and Improved Cycle Life

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N101054

    Silver-zinc rechargeable batteries are widely accepted as they offers 40% more runtime over lithium-ion batteries and 95% of their primary elements can be recycled and reused. However, these batteries need to achieve a further level of improvement with better cycle life and wider temperature range for large scale commercial acceptance. In this Navy SBIR program, Material and Electrochemical Resear ...

  10. Novel Fuel Cell Supercapacitor Hybrid Power System

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: DTRA092004

    High energy density capacitors are needed to provide load flexibility to fuel cells as hybrid power supplied for a variety of WMD sensors and detectors. New materials/manufacturing processes are needed to make these electrical power systems man portable. To develop high performance supercapacitors with fast recharge and high discharging rate electrode materials should have very high surface area. ...
