  5. Archimedes: Automated invention for threat anticipation

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162005

    "Anticipating future acts of creativity by our adversaries is very difficult. Yet, to avoid being blindsided by surprising new forms of WMD enabled by technology trends and scientific advances, DTRA must concern itself with exactly such future inventions. ATC-NY will develop the Archimedes system to give the DTRA an early heads up about anticipated technology, and scientific discoveries with po ...

  6. Superconductor Sensitive High Dynamic-range Receiver

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N162122

    Superconductor analog-to-digital converters (ADC) offer discriminating advantages in both bandwidth and fidelity due to very high sampling rates and quantum-accurate digitization based on counting of magnetic flux quanta. Multiple digital-RF receiver systems incorporating superconductor ADCs have been in operation for over four years in field-ready configurations at Government laboratories. We pro ...

  8. Automated Code and Architecture Refactoring Software (ACARIS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: N171012

    The current Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) software is very powerful and essential to mission planning efforts in the field; however, a large part of the codebase is outdated legacy software which doesnt take full advantage of the hardware its running on. In order to use the JMPS software to its full potential, the Navy would benefit from a tool that could refactor low-level code and restruc ...

  10. Modular Multi-Platform Rotor Hub Fatigue Test Rig

    SBC: DAYTON T. BROWN, INC.            Topic: N171016

    The established methodology for fatigue testing rotorcraft dynamic components is time consuming and expensive. Multiple, unique, custom designed test fixtures are required. In order to reduce the time and expense of testing rotorcraft hubs and shafts a modular, multi-platform, easily reconfigurable test fixture is desired. This new test system should also be capable of greater load cycles applicat ...
