  1. Accelerated Learning for Cyber Insider Threat Reduction (XL-CITR)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: OSD08CR8

    Future U.S. Information Systems will be subject to increased attacks. These attacks will come from both internal and external threats. As reflected by the budgets for combating these threats, external cyber threats are assumed to be more likely. By comparison, internal threats to cyber networks from U.S. personnel receive little attention; yet, the consequences can be even more devastating. Al ...

  2. Laser Beacon for Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) and Combat Identification

    SBC: Diffraction, Ltd            Topic: AF093100

    The proposed multi-spectral IFF beacon will use 40 to 50 % effient high power laser diodes at 863, 1064, and 1550 nm wavelengths. Thermal emitters including diamond-like carbon thin films, photonic crystals, and quantum cascade lasers will be characterized and compared. Finally a model to predict the detection range of IFF beacons will be developed using proprietary emitter power and atmospheric ...

  3. Azimuthal-Current Drive (ACD) Plasma Beam for Space Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N093223

    The proposed innovation seeks to take advantage of a recently developed highly collimated, high density plasma system which has applications for remote space debris removal. The Azimuthal-Current drive (ACD) Plasma Beam System produces a highly directed, intense plasma beam which can be shown to be effective in removing small space debris by imparting directed energy to small objects providing eno ...

  4. Ultrahigh Definition OLED Microdisplay (UDM)

    SBC: EMAGIN CORP.            Topic: AF093021

    Development of an Ultrahigh definition (>5 megapixel) active matrix OLED microdisplay with high dynamic range and refresh rate, and which provides 20/20 acuity with a digital near-eye visualization system, has the potential to significantly increase warfighter effectiveness without requiring compromises between resolution, field of view and digital capability. Active matrix OLED has been proven to ...

  5. Highly Linear E-Band Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF093147

    The Air Force has identified a need for an advanced traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA) that supports future generations of broad bandwidth, efficient and linear military satellite communication. To address this need, InnoSys proposes to develop innovative solutions for advanced TWTAs that operate from 81 to 86 GHz, deliver high efficiency greater than 30% with a relatively high saturated gain g ...

  6. Risk modeling for unmanned aircraft in US national airspace

    SBC: Aerovel Corporation            Topic: AF093205

    One of the obstacles to use of unmanned aircraft in the United States is lack of quantitative understanding of the associated risk of damage or injury. We propose to develop and promote practical algorithms for estimating risk of midair collision or surface impact. We further propose complementary work on path planning to minimise risk while accomplishing mission objectives, and on simulation to ...

  7. An Auditory Scene Analysis Approach to Speech Segregation

    SBC: Kuzer            Topic: AF09BT12

    This proposal seeks to investigate monaural (one-microphone) speech segregation. Motivated by the observation that the human auditory system has the remarkable ability of segregating an acoustic mixture and grouping the components of the same event into a stream in a perceptual process called auditory scene analysis, the proposed approach is based on auditory scene analysis principles. The overall ...

  8. Coherence Collapse- Speckle Reduction at the Laser Source

    SBC: Microvision, Inc.            Topic: AF083233

    Laser projectors provide brilliant and reproducible colors and large depth of infinite focus on flat or curved screens without compromising color saturation and brightness. However, lasers bring the speckle problem that manifests as random variation in image intensity resulting from interference of many scattered coherent laser light waves. Phase II technical objectives are to demonstrate speckle ...

  9. High Frequency (HF) Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR) Metric Accuracy

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF093057

    Over-the-Horizon radar (OTHR) uses ionospheric reflection to propagate HF transmissions to long range (~ 500 to 5000 km). The ionosphere is a dynamic “mirror” that varies diurnally, seasonally, and with the solar cycle. Geolocation of targets observed by OTHR, (Coordinate Registration; CR), requires accurate real-time ionospheric modeling and HF propagation calculations to convert radar-meas ...

  10. Autonomous Aerial Recovery of Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: AF08T014

    The objective of this project is to develop a strategy to recover micro air vehicles into a flying aircraft. Our solution combines three key technologies that have received significant research attention in recent years, namely towed cable systems, cooperative control, and vision-based terminal guidance. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a flying-aircraft mothership pulling an a ...
