Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF14-AT01
Budget: 03/01/16 - 02/28/17

Increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, GNC, etc., enabled by smaller and more capable electronics systems have led to a trend for overall size reduction in military aircraft. This has resulted in a reduction in the avail...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-011
Budget: 09/17/15 - 09/16/16

The goal of the proposed Phase II research is to perfect the graphene dispersion and mixing techniques and demonstrate that the graphene enhanced double base propellant (GEP) is as insensitive as the base propellant. In Phase I, limited experimental evaluation.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13A-T012
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Building upon a successful Phase I effort where we demonstrated the viability of multiple transparent conductive material to be used as an antenna as well as the self-healing properties of our polymer encapsulant we will test the transparent antenna patterns before selecting a final material to be used for further testing. The main focus of the ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Sandia National Laboratories

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF14-AT01
Budget: 11/15/14 - 08/15/15

ABSTRACT: Two accelerating trends in military aircraft design and development are apparent: (1) increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, guidance, navigation and control (GNC), etc., enabled by ever-smaller and evermore capable electronics; and (2) reduction in overall size and available space for auxiliary equip...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-063
Budget: 05/05/14 - 03/05/15

NextGen Aeronautics teaming with the group of Prof. John Hart at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology addresses the challenges of producing well aligned ultra-long carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers. Recent important developments have shown that individual CNTs can be grown to previously unprecedented lengths (>0.5 m). In this Phase I SBIR projec...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: San Diego State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT22
Budget: 04/01/14 - 03/31/16

ABSTRACT: NextGen Aeronautics, leveraging past experience in generating stress spectra from static and vibratory loads as well as knowledge of gas turbines, is proposing a method for estimating blade stresses from multiple vibratory loads in rotating systems from limited manufacturer data from Campbell diagrams and strain gage blade stresses. Th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB141-005
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Significant resources are required to ensure proper self-localization of submersibles without available reference signals such as GPS or LBL. This is compounded, when the vehicle remains submerged for extended periods of time which is often required for reconnaissance missions. In the case of a miniature autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-245
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: Abstract This proposal addresses development of high performance, compact size, and light weight multiplexers including diplexers, triplexers, and quadruplexers for GPS applications (e.g. GPS III system). The proposed devices will support a bandwidth up to 45 MHz at each channel. The passband insertion losses will be less than 0.5 dB...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Army
Topic: A13A-T012
Budget: 11/25/13 - 05/24/14

The goal of the proposed research is to develop self-healing embedded communication antennas to be used in transparent armor i.e., ground vehicle windows. Embedded antennas are known to delaminate from their host structures after impact; this allows an em

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-012
Budget: 11/12/13 - 09/11/14

NextGen Aeronautics (NextGen) is proposing an innovative actuation concept that minimizes SWaP impact on munitions. The proposed actuation system will be designed to survive ultra-high gun-fired munitions inertial loads, insensitive requirements, long storage, and transportation conditions. Explosive micro-charge arrays addressed by flexible ele...
