  1. High-Power Millimeter-Wave Micro-Sources for Communications & Radar Dominance

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF06T022

    The proposed effort is to evaluate the feasibility of a W-band sheet-beam vacuum electronic device that can provide up to 1 kW of peak RF power at a minimum efficiency of 20%. Key elements of this effort are on the generation and transport of the sheet beam and its interaction with the RF circuit. The potential of employing a depressed collector to improve overall efficiency will also be investiga ...

  2. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  3. 2-D 2-Color Laser Spot Array Generation for Quantum Computing Applications:Doppler-free Acousto-Optic Multi-beam Scanners to Address and Trap Atom Arr

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: A06T010

    We propose to develop and fabricate an optical scanner required to address a 2-D array of trapped Rubidium atomic qubits with two lasers simultaneously. One of the most scalable approaches to quantum information processing (QIP) is Optical addressing of arrays of trapped atoms. This is done with focused spots using tuned lasers which program initial states and implement 2-quibt gates. High spatial ...

  4. Advanced System of Systems Design Capability

    SBC: CHESAPEAKE MARINE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N06T016

    Chesapeake Marine Technology, with suncontractors Anteon Proteus Engineering and the Georgia Institute of Technology, is proposing to demonstrate the feasibility of a ship-centric design tool that can be used to evaluate design trade-offs and optimize ship characteristics, with the ship considered to be one "System" in a System of Systems (SoS)environment. The proposed work is based on modifying ...

  5. Development of Novel Knowledge-Based Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) Techniques

    SBC: COHERENT SYSTEMS INTERNATIONAL CORP.            Topic: N05T013

    Airborne radar systems face a number of difficulties in detection and estimation of targets in the presence of clutter and other forms of interference. The work proposed for this STTR will focus on advancement and application of robust, innovative methods that improve Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) for airborne radar. As the name implies STAP allows a system to adaptively respond to a chang ...

  6. Chemical Kinetics Modeling Tools for Hydrocarbon Scramjet Propulsion System Design

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: OSD05T002

    One of the difficulties in reactive flow simulation is the development of reduced models that are capable of predicting the non-equilibrium processes such as ignition and blow-out. Hydrocarbon fuels become viable alternatives to hydrogen at Mach numbers below 10, because of greater fuel densities and endothermic cooling capabilities. However, hydrocarbon fuels show difficulties for flame holding ...

  7. Waterjet Wake Characterization Suite

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N06T022

    Bubble generation and entrainment in the transom region of a surface ship, along its hull, and in breaking waves are major ship signature contributors. For advanced ships such as the LCS, another source of air entrainment is added with the propulsion waterjets interacting with the free surface in the transom region. While significant research on breaking waves bubble generation exists, little is ...

  8. Deposition of Amorphous Aluminum Alloys as a Replacement for Aluminum Cladding

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T023

    The protective properties of the oxide films that form on aluminum alloys can break down locally and allow extensive corrosion. An amorphous alloy system recently developed at the University of Virginia is promising as an environmentally compliant metal cladding. We propose a new method for converting alloy powder into coatings. This technique does not require large standoffs and has very high hea ...

  9. Ultra-Linear High Efficiency GaN based microwave integrated Circuits

    SBC: Epitaxial Technologies, LLC            Topic: N06T009

    The goal of this program is to develop high linearity and high efficiency power amplifiers through innovative ultra linear transistors and digital signal processing (DSP) circuit linearization techniques for airborne or UAV applications. Specifically, we will demonstrate average output power, PAE, and inter-modulation distortion (IMD) of 150 Watts, 50% and -50 dBc respectively for the L- band mono ...
