  1. Hypersonic Experimental Aerothermoelastic Test (HEAT)

    SBC: Global Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF16AT24

    The U.S. Air Force is interested in developing hypersonic vehicles including reusable transport aircraft, cruise missiles, and unmanned systems. Hypersonic flight regimes result in multifaceted and very difficult design challenges that can be encapsulated into an aerothermoelastic problem, which is a complex interaction of structural, thermal, and aerodynamic mechanisms. When a flexible structural ...

  2. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

    SBC: Quantum Applied Science And Research, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Because of rising demand for human analysts and more efficient processing of increasingly large and challenging amounts of intelligence, human limitations on mental workload, cognitive fatigue, and attentionor task engagement, need to be accurately monitored in real-time in order to provide sensitive detection of impaired cognitive states. It is a challenge to continuously monitor these cognitive ...

  3. Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution

    SBC: Fuse Integration, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT003

    Currently networks are not taking advantage of the inherent benefits of high multi-beam directional networking. For example, the current MADL implementation simply daisy chains the nodes in the network creating multiple single points of network failure (of course retaining self-healing properties.) The Fuse Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution (DCLNS) optimized architecture features a robus ...

  4. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT001

    Oceanit proposes to develop a system to characterize weak electromagnetic fields for the investigation of the effect of both thermal and non-thermal RF/magnetic fields on biological material, and to detect resulting biological impact of the energy deposited.

  5. Multi-Physics Models for Parachute Deployment and Braking for Coupling with DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT004

    Design analysis of parachute recovery systems has relied on a combination of core design principles, historical empirical data, and extensive testing for decades. Parachute motion involves complex phenomena involving porous bluff-body aerodynamics and highly deformable cloth. The proposed project is a plugin for the DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel simulation suite that will enable high-fidelity simulations ...

  6. Mechanically Static High Speed 3-D Optical/Digital Holographic Polarimeter

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT007

    Phase I of this effort involves the creation of a comprehensive end-to-end model of a novel holographic polarimeter.The polarimeter that can be constructed based on our model will be able to determine the full polarization properties (Mueller matrix elements) of scattering, reflecting and absorbing media as a function of the materials depth.Unlike previous attempts, this system will be a real-time ...

  7. AgileBeam Reconfigurable Free Space Optical Communication System

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT010

    Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems provide many benefits for satellite communications, including high data rates and low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) compared to traditional RF communication systems.Additionally, FSO systems operate without RF emissions and are inherently immune to RF interference and jamming.The narrow optical beams and small Field-of-View of the optical receivers al ...

  8. Miniaturized Optical WDM Transmitter/Transceiver

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF18AT010

    The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement a low reconfigurable, reliable Free Space Optical (FSO) link supporting high bandwidth communications for satellite to satellite or satellite to ground communication. The FSO Transceiver (Transmitter/Receiver) to be implemented will be small Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) such that it can be easily carried by compact spa ...

  9. Carbon NanotubeCopper Composite as Electron Emitter for Passive Spacecraft Discharging

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF18AT011

    This SBIR project will develop and demonstrate efficient electron emitter based on carbon nanotubecopper (CNT-Cu) composite for passive discharging of spacecraft in plasma environment. A spacecraft moving through harsh plasma environment collects electrons, which leads to the spacecraft charging up to several kilovolts. High voltage between different parts of the spacecraft can ignite arcing, whic ...

  10. Flexible Sensor Network and Its Embedded Integrated Circuits for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF16AT03

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensors and electronics used by ...
