  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 ...

  3. Enhanced Detection of Hidden Targets Using Multi-Discriminant Ladar

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: AF071156

    Precision weapons using Ladar seekers with automatic target recognition (ATR) will be challenged by an enemy’s efforts to hide, and it will be necessary for these Ladar systems to have enhanced target detection capability. The design features that show the most potential for providing enhanced “hidden” target detection include: multi-pulse detection logic and the use of polarized multi-spect ...

  4. Accurately Validated High-Speed Wear Prediction Code

    SBC: C-K Technologies L.L.C.            Topic: AF05289

    The technology resulting from this effort will provide a theoretical wear model which, although focused on predicting slipper surface wear associated with Air Force high-speed sleds, can be utilized with appropriate input modifications to predict wear in a range of mechanical devices where high-pressure and high-velocity surfaces are utilized. In addition, a high-speed, high-pressure pin-on-disk ...

  5. Methodology for Software Trustworthiness Measurement

    SBC: COGNITIVE CONCEPTS            Topic: AF071069

    Cognitive Concepts (CC) and High Performance Technologies, Inc. (HPTi) will support the Air Force in defining objective measures of software trustworthiness, not just for embedded systems, but for a broad range of applications. The innovation is to establish measures of the inherent risks in software systems and to provide tools to implement those measures. The measurements we define will be fun ...

  6. Optical Propagation Improvement System (OPIS)


    A system that provides a large field of regard for propagation of a laser beam from a transonic platform will be evaluated at larger scale and in greater detail (with more realistic and detailed geometry) than the successful Phase I demonstrations. Critical and practical issues identified in phase I will be addressed during the Phase II effort. The design includes a concept to address the fact t ...

  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. Fabrication of GRIN Glass Spheres

    SBC: MO-SCI Corp.            Topic: 42

    A glass sphere, with a refractive index of 2.0 at the surface (a miniature sphere retroreflector, with diameter in the range of 1 to 5 mm) has a number of unique properties that make it attractive for many remote sensing applications, including radiation detection in support of the DOE¿s nonproliferation responsibilities. For example, these spheres can be deployed without concern of precise plac ...

  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. Photoconductive Silicon Carbide Switched Kicker Modulators

    SBC: SCI-ENG SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 30

    In order to satisfy the demanding requirements of the International Linear Collider, this project will demonstrate the feasibility of producing fast kicker systems that employ Photoconductive Silicon Carbide switches and Nano-Ceramic Transmission Lines. The fast, high voltage, high current modulators to drive the kicker systems not only will be compact, robust, and efficient, but also will reliab ...
