  1. Safe, Large-Format Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Batteries for ICBMs

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: AF181046

    U.S. Air Force seeks a nonflammable electrolyte material to improve battery safety under military operating conditions. Rechargeable lithium and Li-ion batteries can fail violently when subjected to an internal electrical short, are overheated, crushed, or when they are overcharged. Corvid Technologies LLC plans to develop a safe, innovative hybrid electrolyte for lithium metal and Li-ion batterie ...

  6. Atmospheric Plasma Surface Activation of High Strength Steels for Electroplating

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF171003

    The current surface activation process used to activate the surface of landing gear parts uses an aggressive grit blasting technique prior to electroplating. This technique is effective, but requires large amounts of blast media, requires a pre-cleaned surface and the process removes up to 0.1mils of substrate, much more than necessary. There is an urgent need for a process that can easily and eff ...

  8. HVPE-Based Gallium Oxide Homoepitaxial Structures for RF and Power Switching Devices

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF171018

    Monoclinic -Ga2O3 has recently emerged as a promising material for ultrawide bandgap electronics for next-generation high voltage lateral and vertical power switching devices, thanks to its large bandgap (4.9eV), high critical breakdown field (8MV

    SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
  9. Simulator Common Architecture Requirements and Standards (SCARS)


    Cyber threats are increasing USAF simulator and training system sustainment costs and reducing available training time. Existing simulator architectures do not support rapid updating to incorporate new security features or address vulnerabilities. The Si

    SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
  10. Multi-Factor Adaptive Remote Verification (MARV)


    During missions it is imperative to provide war fighters (such as a Joint Target Area Controller or JTAC) with the ability to confirm distant end communicators. These communicators could be other people or automated systems. If the remote communicator i
