  3. Atomic Layer Deposition on Particles for Nanoenergetic, Ferroelectric Capacitor and Thermal Management Applications

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF02T007

    High performance energetic materials are based on inorganic thermite mixtures such as MoO3/Al or organic compounds such as RDX. Future developments in explosives are dependent on the fabrication of nanoscale materials and composite mixtures that display higher energy release rates. The ability to tailor composite materials precisely at the nanoscale by fabricating multilayer component particles ...

  4. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF04T008

    Colorado Engineering, Inc., a small woman owned business, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are teaming to extend a steganogrpahic architecture for an extensible, distributed application that can be utilized to detect steganographic content in media files, alert the user, and either mitigate (destroy) the content if possible or quarantine the files as appropriate. The initial arc ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Chip-Scale Lasers for Inertial Navigation Systems Using Atom Chip Sensors

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: AF07T024

    We propose to develop and build a novel chip-scale external cavity laser with frequency agility for use in matter-wave inertial navigation systems.  These lasers exhibit narrow linewidth, frequency agility (10 GHz), environmental immunity, and can be precisely tuned during manufacture to rubidium D2 transitions or any transition wavelength where Fabry-Perot laser diodes are available, without the ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Concurrent Agent-enabled Feature Extraction (CAFÉ)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T017

    High fidelity simulations of complex systems still pose a challenge to the scientist trying to understand its physical characteristics. The challenge is in finding useful bits in terabytes of data that directly relate to the nature of time-varying, multivariate data. An intelligent data mining capability is needed that has both knowledge (descriptive physics) and foresight (cognitive model of user ...

  9. Dense Wavelength-Multiplexed Sensors for Tomography in Hypersonic Flows Using Diode-Laser Technology

    SBC: Zolo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    We propose to build a wavelength-multiplexed sensor utilizing tunable diode laser technology to perform tomographic analysis of high speed combusting flows. The sensor will have a fast update rate of ~ 1 kHz and will provide sufficient spatial resolution to observe inhomogeneities and sufficient temporal resolution to observe combustion instabilities in the high speed flow. The system will be desi ...
