  2. Technologies for Nanoscale Imaging Using Coherent Extreme Ultraviolet and Soft X-Ray Light

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT11

    ABSTRACT: Microscopy is a critical enabling technology for advancing our understanding of nature. Imaging nanoscale objects with light in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray regions of the spectrum has advantages over visible light for resolution, elemental specificity, and imaging internal structures. Coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) has been developed as a tool to get around the li ...

  5. Satellite Drag Physical Model Module for a Near Real Time Operation Test Bed

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF11BT29

    ABSTRACT: Satellite drag is the leading cause of orbit prediction error in low earth orbit. Modeling of this drag force and its variability is critical to accurate orbit determination and prediction. One of the leading contributing factors to error in drag prediction is thermospheric neutral density variability. Operational models up until the present time have been empirical, with inputs includ ...

  6. High-temperature superconducting SMES for airborne applications

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: AF11BT31

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force has needs for compact, light weight and efficient energy storage devices that do not experience significant performance degradation after many operating cycles. We propose to develop a superconducting magnetic energy storage device (SMES) that is constructed from high-temperature superconducting helical REBCO coated conductor cables. The high charge and discharge powers re ...

  7. Theoretical and experimental development of an atmospheric sensing suite for deep-turbulence research

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: AF11BT41

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I SBIR will produce a concept, and algorithms, for a Sensor Suite which can be used as a research tool to characterize strong atmospheric turbulence. Previous and on-going theories, statistics, and empirical data will be evaluated to arrive at an optimal Sensor design concept. That Sensor may exploit the superior resolution and performance inherent in the Radio-Hydro-Physi ...

  8. Autonomic Performance Assurance for Multi-Processor Supervisory Control

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: OSD11T01

    Multi-processor computing systems are growing in capacity and usage. They encompass multiple, distributed implementations as well as heterogeneous, embedded computing architectures. The processing density enabled by such approaches holds promise for unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAVs) with their plethora of mission sensors and command and control processing requirements. However, the software ...

  9. Design and Analysis of Multi-core Software

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: OSD11T03

    As the computer industry moves toward multi-core, many-core and Graphical Processing Unit (GPU)-based architectures, traditional serial software can no longer make optimal use of a computer"s processing power. Instead, applications now need to be parallelized to take full advantage of modern multi-core CPUs and accelerators such as GPUs. However, developing parallel applications is not an easy ta ...

  10. Coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT22

    ABSTRACT: Thermal interface materials (TIMs) constitute an essential part of thermal management which is quickly becoming the limiting factor in high power, high functional density, and increasingly small-sized electronics for future U.S. Air Force (AF) platforms. Examples of critical applications of interest to the AF include that require improved thermal management include modern aircraft, dire ...
