  3. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  4. Thermoelectrically Cooled MWIR Avalanche Photodiodes on Silicon Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF04T021

    MWIR avalanche photodetectors (APDs) are required in modern Air Force weapons systems to detect, recognize and track stationary and mobile targets under various atmospheric conditions against complex backgrounds. Theoretical and experimental results point toward HgCdTe as the material of choice for fabricating these devices, due to its low ratio of impact ionization coefficients. In Phase I we per ...

  5. Surface-Enhanced Detection of Molecular and Biomolecular Species

    SBC: BIOTOOLS, INC.            Topic: AF05T025

    This Phase II STTR project continues the development of two prior successful Phase I STTR projects aimed at developing surface-enhance Raman optical activity (ROA) on near-infrared tuned gold-coated nanoshells for the detection of chiral molecules, biological molecules and higher biological structures and organisms for applications in the areas of biological research, pharmaceutical development an ...

  6. Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T012

    We propose to develop marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechanical properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning pack surface; simulate the flight of these agglomerates through the chamber, after surface detachment, ...

  7. Continuous Variable Quantum Encryption using Short Laser Pulses

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF05T007

    The use of optical technology in communication links has compelling advantages in terms of data rate, power consumption, weight, and size of the system. However, with the adoption of such technology, we have become heavily reliant on optical communication systems for our economy and national security. It is thus prudent to give careful consideration to the reliability, robustness to attack, and se ...

  8. Self-Healing Adhesives and Composites for Aerospace Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF06T025

    Self-healing composites and adhesives would alleviate longstanding problems in aerospace structures associated with multiple types of damage mechanisms such as mechanical/thermal fatigue, microcracking, and debonding. For example, a self-healing composite cryogenic tank would prevent leakage by sealing microcracks throughout the lifetime of the tank and enable the use of composites in this critica ...

  9. Novel Alternative Energetic Propellants for Space Propulsion

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF08T010

    We propose a comprehensive computational and experimental program to investigate the characteristics and dynamic behavior of novel energetic propellants for space propulsion. Several classes of advanced propellants will be considered. These include “green” propellants (no chlorine) such as GAP/ADN with and without nanostructured fuel additives, nanoscale aluminum and ice propellant, and a nove ...

  10. Photonic Analog-to-Digital Converter

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF07T028

    Analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) is an essential operation in many applications including radar, sensing, communications, and instrumentation. Two key parameters of an ADC are its sampling rate and resolution, measured in samples per second and number of bits, respectively. Unfortunately, as the sampling rate increases the maximum resolution is reduced. High-speed electronic ADCs (>10 GS/s) are ...
