  1. 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. ...

  5. Ultrashort Pulse Laser Direct Part Marking

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF093191

    We will present options for direct marking of parts using ultrashort pulse lasers, that do not compromise the integrity of said parts. BENEFIT: This approach will reduce risk in applying new marking requirements, and represents a market both in commercial and defense aerospace, not to mention ground-based turbines for power-generation.

  7. Information Assurance

    SBC: REIFER CONSULTANTS L.L.C.            Topic: MDA09030

    This SBIR Phase I project addresses malicious code insider threats during manufacturing through test. RCI''s strategy is aimed at isolating malware as part of the testing process during the life cycle support phase of the life cycle. Because testing represents as much as eighty percent of the work performed during maintenance, augmenting test processes and tools is thought to be a very effective ...

  9. Condition-based Failure Prognostic Health Management Systems

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093207

    Ridgetop Group will develop an improved method of supporting condition-based maintenance through the analysis of historical data, and direct but non-intrusive physics-of-failure measurements. The measurements apply a unique Pseudo-Random Noise (PRN) method and autocorrelation approach to detect anomalous operation that precedes failure. The Adaptive Time-to-Failure (ATTF) algorithm will continuous ...
