  1. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Polymer Matrix Composite Engine Components

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06115

    This proposal addresses the development and use of lightweight, low thermal-capacity reformable tooling materials for high-temperature composite processing evaluation, parts prototyping, trial production and full-rate production of PMC engine components. The weight-saving promise of high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) for engine components is offset by the very high costs of parts m ...

  2. 3-D Woven Conformal Antenna Structures

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF05238

    New missions require that airborne radars operate at increasing ranges with higher target resolution. This combination necessitates the cost-effective deployment of large apertures while maintaining aerodynamic performance. Externally mounted antenna arrays are not a satisfactory solution due to the large size at low frequencies, for example with UHF foliage penetration radar. Another approach emp ...

  3. High Power Optical Amplifiers and WDM Intelligent Optical Network Components for Multiband Inter-Satellite Communications

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF04019

    This Phase II SBIR Program will investigate and demonstrate the feasibility of extending OptiComp’s (OCC) intelligent distributed data communications architecture and optoelectronic (OE) interconnect technology to inter-satellite data communication systems. OCC’s proprietary optoelectronic interconnect technology provides multiband optical communication by integrating multi-wavelength VCSEL an ...

  4. Aluminum Agglomeration and Trajectory in Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Software And Engineering Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF06T012

    The demand for higher performance rocket motors at a reduced cost requires continuous improvements in understanding and controlling propellant combustion. Numerous examples are available where seemingly minor modifications and improvements to existing solid rocket systems have caused previously well performing motors to exhibit unexpected and at times near catastrophic behavior. It is far cheape ...

  5. Advanced Rocket Propulsion Technologies

    SBC: Software And Engineering Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF06193

    A modeling and experimental program is proposed with the goal of reducing the mean size of metal oxide droplets in the exhaust of solid propellant rocket motors (SRMs). The proposed effort looks at all aspects of metal combustion and discrete phase dynamics which occur in SRMs and offers approaches which have the potential to reduce the mean droplet size in the flowfield which would subsequently ...

  6. 3-D Woven Conformal Antenna Structures

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF05238

    Applied Radar proposes to investigate a new method of incorporating microwave antenna and feed components directly into airframe structural members. This method is based on the 3-D weaving of a resin transfer molded (RTM) fiber reinforcement preform that meets both RF and structural requirements. The result will be lighter weight, higher performance radar and communications antenna arrays for both ...

  7. Chip-to-Chip Optical Interconnects Using Integrated Photonic Crystal Lightwave Circuits

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF03T021

    The goal of this Phase II STTR program is to develop photonic crystal (PC) technologies which can enable photonic lightwave circuits (PLC¡¦s) that are monolithically integrable with optoelectronic devices and wafers, thereby providing a new technology platform for the heterogeneous integration of photonic and optoelectronic functions. This can significantly increase the density of lightwave circ ...

  8. WDM Intelligent Optical Network Components for Multiband Inter-Satellite Communications

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF04019

    OCC's monolithically integrated, WDM, optoelectronic module technology offers numerous advantages over traditional approaches to space-based communication systems. The advantages of this integrated solution include small size and weight, low power consumption, scalability, and radiation hardness, as well as the ability to realize bidirectional data communications over a common optical path. In a ...

  9. Powered Ascender for Pilot Extraction

    SBC: QUOIN INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF04128

    The Air Force has identified a need for a system that provides improved firefighter and rescue personnel access to cockpits and speeds pilot extraction under ground emergency conditions. Emergency personnel must be able to open the canopy, accomplish engine shutdown, make the ejection system safe, and extract the pilot during ground emergencies. The proximity of engine inlets to the cockpit and th ...

  10. A 71 to 86 GHz Digital Communications Transceiver with 5 GHz Instantaneous Bandwidth

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF03208

    A W-band digital communications transceiver will be developed with 5 GHz instantaneous bandwidth utilizing the 71 - 76 and 81 - 86 GHz frequency spectrum recently allocated by the FCC. This project has both military and commercial applications for SATCOM and Point-to-Point digital communications using formats such as 1.25 Gbps and 10 Gbps Ethernet for extremely wideband data and video transmission ...
