Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-006
Budget: 02/20/09 - 02/23/10

An approach to make a long endurance UAV with an 18 hour endurance and large payload will be developed based on an existing, fielded capability present operationally deployed. The system will be built from COTS equipment minimizing cost and allowing for rapid maintenance and upgrading of the system as technology develops. The system will be fu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-1
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

In this phase I SBIR program, a team led by Advanced Ceramics Research Inc. (ACR) propose a novel, low-cost manufacturing process for multi-functional polymer composite components with improved lightning strike mitigation and EMI shielding capabilities. The proposed program will develop and demonstrate a process for manufacturing complex-geometr...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-2
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Our proposed future Phase II activities are aimed at developing a scientifically based "tool box" for flight research using scaled models. These tools will be of great use for GA companies in the design, development, and FAA approval of future general aviation (GA) aircraft, in particular also when novel technologies such as active flow control,...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-003
Budget: 09/21/06 - 09/21/07

The detection of objects underwater remains a difficult task. For many applications particularly marine defense operations, it is desirable to be able to identify the position of objects such as mines (buried and below the surface of the water) as well as to being able to discriminate between a rock and a mine. For many homeland security operati...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Delaware

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-T021
Budget: 08/24/06 - 05/24/07

The ACR led team proposes an affordable manufacturing technique for complex-geometry composite components to be used as stiffened curvilinear structural panels and variable shaped fuel and ballast tanks for Off-board surface vehicles. Through the use of its Aquapour and Aquacore water-soluble tooling materials, ACR has previously demonstrated ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-253
Budget: 07/28/06 - 12/05/09

The objective of the effort is to develop and demonstrate a persistent surveillance and early threat detection and warning system for hostile perimeters around sensitive or high value establishments. The persistent surveillance capability is in the form of a small unmanned air vehicle (UAV) which patrols a predetermined perimeter around the fac...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Topic: DTRA06-012
Budget: 07/11/06 - 01/10/07

ACR proposes the development of novel composite systems for air burst munitions capable of releasing high temperature over an extended area. Investigation will use Fibrous Monolith (FM) processing and a cost-efficient, innovative reactive composite system to form an airburst system that will generate an expanding thermal cloud. The proposed FM...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-082
Budget: 05/17/06 - 09/17/07

In this phase I SBIR program, a team led by Advanced Ceramics Research Inc. (ACR) proposes an affordable manufacturing technique for high through-thickness thermal conductivity heat sinks for fighter avionics applications. ACR will use its Aquapour tooling materials as a support for the fabrication of the heat sinks. In the phase I program, ACR...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM05-011
Budget: 02/16/06 - 08/16/06

This proposal will design, develop, and demonstrate a self-contained probe that will provide sensor videos on-demand to aircraft operators. A Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV) is proposed to meet this requirement. The MUAV will be capable of being launched from existing airborne aircraft platforms, including helicopters, and will be capab...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-140
Budget: 02/15/06 - 08/15/06

Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (COFDM) continues to be a preferred solution for wireless broadband data transfer. Currently many Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solutions are available with a wide range of performance optimizations from low cost 802.11.g using 64 carriers to more expensive Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestr...
