  5. Gradient Index Metamaterial Integrating Sphere

    SBC: Oxford Defense North Carolina LLC            Topic: AF182036

    Oxford Defense North Carolina, LLC will design, simulate, and demonstrate a metamaterial for use in a microwave integrating sphere. This device is similar to optical integrating spheres by causing incident radiation from a device under test to be uniformly distributed over the inside surface via multiple scattering. We will undertake the design, simulation, fabrication, and characterization of a m ...

  6. Free-Space Optical Communications (FSO) and its Remote Detection, Location and Characterization or Interception

    SBC: Wavefront Vision Inc            Topic: AF182039

    The physical layer security of free space optical communication (FSO) has attracted growing attention recently.As the FSO laser beam propagates through the atmosphere, it is absored by moisture, Rayleigh and Mie scattered by aerosols, dust, particulates, fog, haze and clouds, and randomly or stochastically refracted by atmospheric inhomogeneities and turbulence. Such attenuations of the transmitte ...

  7. Militarized Direct RF Conversion Software Defined Radio (SDR)

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF182041

    To meet the demands of the AF182-041 SBIR solicitation (Militarized Direct RF Conversion Software Defined Radio (SDR)), MaXentric proposes an open source architecture SDR that leverages COTS components coupled with MaXentrics DSP algorithms. The design uses a direct conversion architecture to digitize the RF spectrum at the antenna. This results in an SDR that can analyze the entire EM environment ...

  8. Sensor to Establish the Initial Orbit of Deployed Satellites

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF182071

    Improved launch capabilities and the boom of nanosatellite payloads have significantly lowered the hurdles and costs associated with putting a mission into Earth orbit.Unfortunate byproducts of these conditions are an increasingly congested space environment and a larger portion of smaller payloads, which are challenging to acquire and track from the ground.In response to these needs, MaXentric is ...

  10. Modeling Tools for the Drilling of Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs)

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF182098

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team member, National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) at Wichita State University, propose to develop a micro-macro coupling tool for simulation of thermal-mechanical response and multi-mode failure progression in selected polymer matrix composites under drilling. A rational approach based on a micro-scale model is developed to cha ...
