  1. Assessment of Asymmetric Social Indicators using Non-Verbal Vocal Cues

    SBC: Mentio, Inc.            Topic: SB121002

    The objective of this proposal is to develop, implement and evaluate a set of accurate and robust algorithms specifically designed to capture and measure multilateral social interactions automatically through audio-based methods based on asymmetric data design. We propose to accomplish this by: 1) Developing a novel method that uses multiple microphones interfaced with a smartphone and placed on a ...

  2. Anti-Exploitation Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Siege Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA1

    State-of-the-art software protection and anti-tamper systems move critical software and data"out-of-band"to the adversary, by using a hypervisor or on"secure"hardware. Unfortunately, the systems running this software are built using untrusted commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts. Supply chain threats to critical components, such as hardware or firmware Trojans, have invalidated the assumption tha ...

  3. A Scheme to Reduce Dark Current in SLS FPAs

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA11005

    Longwave infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on Type-II InAs/GaSb-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes show good performance at the current time. A key remaining challenge is the reduction of dark current, dominated by pixel surface leakage in FPAs and low minority carrier lifetime in the bulk material. We propose to address the former in this Phase I and develop a unique sche ...

  4. Non-Contact Inspection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112C117

    ABSTRACT: Inspection of machined composite laminate parts is currently performed using a precision milling machine (PMM) to maneuver a touch probe. When performed on complex parts, this inspection process is extremely time consuming and ties up the PMM for longer time periods than the actual machining. PMM throughput needs to be increased to achieve the F-35 FY2017 program goal of one aircraft ...

  5. Low-Cost Hybrid Cryocoolers for Next-Generation Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112136

    ABSTRACT: Future airborne imaging sensors will utilize next-generation focal plane technology that must operate at temperatures from 25 to 30 K. Passive cooling techniques such as stored cryogens are heavy and logistically undesirable. Current airborne cryocoolers are too inefficient in this temperature range and space-borne cryocoolers are prohibitively expensive. On this program, Creare prop ...

  6. A CubeSat-Compatible Neutral Wind Sensor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121066

    ABSTRACT: CubeSats provide a new, low-cost platform for space weather missions. They enable new mission paradigms, such as the ability to perform multiple measurements of the same physical phenomena globally from several satellites, in contrast to high accuracy measurements of multiple phenomena on the same spacecraft. Flight-tested neutral wind sensors must be miniaturized to fit into these mu ...

  7. Hostile Fire Indicator for Remotely Piloted Aircraft

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT: Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the design of a multi-threat hostile fire indication (HFI) system for remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA). The HFI system consist of a wide field of view sensor head that employs small multi-spectral imagers in the short-wave infrared (SWIR), with the spectral bands selected specifically for detection of small arms fire (SAF), ...

  8. Improved Mass Balancing of Turbo Machine Rotors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112166

    ABSTRACT: The efficient, effective balancing of jet engine rotors and subassemblies continues to be a challenge for key aerospace applications. While manufacturing methods for balancing have improved significantly over the last ten years, measurement methods and procedures and fixturing have not advanced at the same pace. Modern jet engines require multiple parts and subassemblies to be balance ...

  9. Compact Adaptive Condenser With a Built-in Thermal Switch

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121174

    ABSTRACT: Next-generation thermal management systems in advanced aircraft must utilize all available heat sinks, including fuel, ram air, and bleed air flows to effectively manage aircraft thermal loads. To this end, we propose to develop a compact, highly integrated condenser to prevent heat rejection capacity reduction in very hot environments. The condenser has a built-in thermal switch. Wh ...

  10. Passive Optical Combustion Sensors for Scramjet Engine Control

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121191

    ABSTRACT: Dual-mode scramjet engines must operate over a wide range of flight Mach numbers. Closed loop engine control is necessary to maintain thrust and flame stability while preventing unstart over the large flight envelope. High-frequency sensors and actuators will be a key component of future scramjet Full Authority Digital Engine Controllers (FADECs) due to the short time scales associate ...
