  1. Metamaterial-based MEM ultra-low-loss non-dispersive phased-array antenna

    SBC: Technology and Communications Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT28

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to develop and demonstrate approaches for realizing metamaterial-based micro-electrometrical (MEM) ultra-low-loss non-dispersive phased array antennas for multifunction radar and communication systems in unmanned and micro air vehicles. A metamaterial based Ka-band unit cell will be designed and provide the foundation for a 4 bit phase shifter that will b ...

  2. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...

  3. Cyber Security High Abstraction Contextual Visualization and Decision Support System

    SBC: 3 Sigma Research, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA4

    3 Sigma Research investigates and develops an advanced innovative Tangible User Interface (TUI) that provides a novel operator interface for real-time operator manipulation of the cyber environment. This TUI provides a highly abstract physical embodiment of the complex cyber environment, that commanders and controllers can touch, visualize, and recognize patterns. This kind of manipulation of obj ...

  4. Listener Performance Modeling in Urban Environments

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF112024

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this Small Business Innovative Research project is to predict the ability of human listeners to detect and identify specific auditory targets within complex, real-world sound environments. Previous approaches, based on linear auditory models, have produced mixed results. Our novel approach simulates the nonlinear signal processing observed in auditory physiology, significant ...

  5. Quantum Dot Gain Material for High Reliability, Radiation-Hard Laser Diode Pump

    SBC: SDPHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF112056

    ABSTRACT: A new active material will be developed and tested to improve reliability for space applications. Recent improvement in facet reliability reveals that bulk failure mechanisms could limit laser diodes used in space. Radiation-induced defects are expected to occur in the bulk of the laser diode gain material because of its active volume. The new active material is designed to limit intern ...

  6. Analog-to-Digital Converter for High Depth of Nulling SATCOM

    SBC: The Athena Group, Inc.            Topic: AF112062

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is charged with the daunting task of providing satellite communication (SATCOM) support over a wide range of applications. The AF112-062 call is designed to address the problem of providing analog-to-digital converters (ADC) suitable for use in SATCOM applications. The Athena Group, Inc. (Athena) responds to this challenge with Peregrine, an advanced ADC concept that is ca ...

  8. Graphene Memory Device

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF121055

    ABSTRACT: A need exists for a reliable, low cost radiation-hardened digital memory in aerospace and defense applications and in long-life, high-speed memory for terrestrial and commercial applications. Present offerings can accomplish the objective, but only at the expense of performance, power, size, and weight with device redundancy and shielding. Recent focus on Graphene and its capabilities ...

  9. Compact Type I Space Encryption Hardware

    SBC: Aeronix, Inc.            Topic: AF121070

    ABSTRACT: There are a number of ongoing initiatives to develop smaller satellites that provide less expensive solutions in a more timely fashion compared to traditional spacecraft development while reducing the barrier-to-entry for participation in the space industry. The Office of Responsive Space, ORS, plans to use Plug-n-Play satellites and/or Micro-satellites to provide highly responsive spac ...

  10. Accelerated Blast Modeling for Synergistic Effects during Cooperative Strike

    SBC: ANYAR INC.            Topic: AF121090

    ABSTRACT: When a structure breaks up following a blast event, it allows the blast wave to propagate through a new opening into another airspace; this continuation of the blast wave is called"secondary blast"and may cause damage to elements in the other airspace. Each step in this process is a candidate for some type of acceleration. Current assessment codes incorporate several Fast Running Model ...
