Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-229
Budget: 12/17/02 - 06/17/03

Improvements in channel capacity (i.e. bit rate) of mobile communication systems are important for extending their range and data throughput capabilities for current military and civilian applications and enable a number of new, highly marketable, applications. The objective of the program is the design, fabrication, and demonstration of an ine...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2000
Budget: 01/01/00 - 12/31/00

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-069
Budget: 07/09/99 - 07/09/01

Solar AMTEC systems are modular, inherently radiation hard, low mass, and capable of high thermal-to-electric conversion efficiency without moving parts at temperatures compatable with current solar receiver technology. Future USAF missions, such as Space Based Radar and Space Based Laser, require high power, output (50-100 kWe) and high efficie...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-069
Budget: 04/30/98 - 04/12/99

Alkali Metal Thermal to Electric Converters (AMTEC) convert heat to electricity at high efficiency without moving parts at temperatures compatible with current solar receiver technology. A Phase I program is proposed which will deliver an integrated, high-temperature thermal storage/high-efficiency AMTEC cell system concepts and a small-scale t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1997
Budget: 01/01/97 - 12/31/97

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Michigan

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96T001
Budget: 11/30/96 - 05/30/97

We propose to develop low-cost, creep-stable, polycrystalline yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) and mullite (3Al203.2Si02) fibers (10-20 ¦m dia.) for evaluation as reinforcement for advanced ceramic composites. The fibers will be produced by spinning optimized alkoxide and carboxylate metalloorganic precursors. The critical issues that must be res...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF95-082
Budget: 09/25/96 - 09/25/98

The Alkali Metal thermal to Electric Converter (AMTEC) technoplogy is ideal for auxiliary electric power supplies (AEPS) that must operate reliably over a broad range of temperatures, fuel sources, power levels, and operational specifications. The simplicity efficiency (20% systems) and modularity of this technology allow it to fill application...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1996
Budget: 01/01/96 - 12/31/96

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF94-075
Budget: 04/20/95 - 07/24/97

Phase I produced a conceptual design of a 500 We Solar AMTEC spacecraft system and showed that an AMTEC solar power system offers several advantages relative to both current and projected PV power systems including; (1) high specific energy-12 We/kg for a complete system at the 500 We level, (2) low system cost-$1,000 to $2,000/We, (3) Low degra...
