  1. Ambient Power Supply for On-Board Vehicle Health Monitoring MEMS Sensors

    SBC: AMBIENT MICRO            Topic: AF06170

    In Phase I, Ambient Micro successfully demonstrated the capability of its Multi-Source Ambient Power Supply module to simultaneously harvest and store energy from multiple ambient sources to extend the operating life of MEMS Vehicle Health Monitoring sensors for UAV-mounted sensor systems. As the U.S. Air Force increasingly evolves UAV mission roles to support persistent surveillance, persistent s ...

  2. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  4. Antenna Array Structures for Composite Airframes

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071086

    Described herein is a proposal for the design and fabrication of a novel, low-cost, low-profile nanotube antenna that can be conformed to the skin of composite airframe structures and potentially be integrated with nanotube active devices. Carbon nanotubes conformed to composite structures create radiating surfaces that can be configured as antennas and coupling these with nanotube active devices ...

  5. Directing Monopulse Jamming Toward Antenna of Semiactive or Antiradiation Missile

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071214

    The proposed effort will develop an electro-optical sensor to direct an advanced monopulse electronic attack (EA) technique from an aircraft toward the antenna of a semiactive missile rather than the illuminating radar to increase the effectiveness of the countermeasures. The proposed electro-optical system will be high-speed and have high angular accuracy. The effort will examine operational re ...

  6. Noncoherent Dual Platform Advanced Monopulse Countermeasures (AMCs) Standoff Jammer

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071220

    The cross-eye jamming technique based on DRFM can be extended to a dual platform system by using the collaborative network theory. Each airplane is equipped with Oceanit’s patented optical sensor, which is capable of measuring the angle between the other airplane and the missile. Therefore, the complete triangle made by the airplanes and missile can be uniquely determined once the distance betwe ...

  7. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detectors are required to detect IEDs. These detectectors are needed to save the lives of American soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will dem ...

  8. Satellite Threat and Environmental Effects Assessments for Defensive Counterspace

    SBC: Referentia Systems Incorporated            Topic: AF063007

    Satellites and other spacecraft are a key asset and critical vulnerability in our communications, surveillance and defense infrastructure. Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and Defensive Counterspace (DCS) efforts are aimed at leveraging the massive amounts of data gathered from ground, air and space based sensors to monitor and ideally protect these assets. While there has been much work on dat ...

  9. High Energy Density, Low-Cost, High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: Sbe Inc            Topic: 05

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) require advanced technology capacitors, which must have low cost and the ability to operate at 150oC. However, current 150oC film capacitor solutions are expensive and have lower energy density compared to materials that operate at lower temperatures. Polypropylene Film Capacitors represent a potentially cost effective solution ...

  10. Tools for Full Spectrum Analysis of Hyperspectral Data

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01

    Hyperspectral sensor systems are currently under consideration for applications related to monitoring the nuclear fuel cycle and other signatures of interest to the nonproliferation community. These applications include the detection of camouflaged and concealed targets, gas plume detection and identification, and terrain classification. Unfortunately, many of the data exploitation tools are not ...
