  1. Signature Reduction using Metasurfaces on group 1 UAV platforms

    SBC: NOTCH, INC.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Enemies use radar system to identify and target Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). To prevent detection, the UAV should be able to reduce its RF signature by reducing its Radar Cross Section (RCS). In addition, it is essential for the "blue force" UAV to be able to use its RF systems (radar/comms) while not being detected. Traditional Radar Absorbing Materials (RAM) are used to absorb radar's Electr ...

  4. Three-Dimensional Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance (3-D TrAM) Phase II

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP            Topic: AF19AT005

    Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system.  Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target.  In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction.  Further, atmospheric turbulence scint ...

  6. Point of care blood coagulopathy diagnostics

    SBC: Coalesenz Inc.            Topic: DHA19A001

    We have developed a novel low-cost, multi-functional blood coagulation sensor that can measure a patient’s coagulation status within less than 10 minutes using a 25mL drop of blood. This device addresses the critical unmet need to identify and manage patients with an elevated risk of life-threatening bleeding or thrombosis, the major causes of in-hospital preventable death. In addition, our inno ...

  8. Phase II: Real-Time Pilot Health, Performance Monitoring in RF-denied Environments

    SBC: BDYWR, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Performance/Health monitoring applications use wearable physiological sensors to acquire physiological signals from the body. The sensed data is generally sent through wireless radio wave communication like Bluetooth for further analysis and inference. However, environments like an airplane cockpit/special operation are susceptible to external Radio Frequency (RF) interferences, as it can interfer ...
