  1. Development of an Efficient Flutter and Limit Cycle Oscillation Predictive Tool

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF14AT04

    ABSTRACT: Several current fighter aircraft with external store configurations persistently encounter Limit Cycle Oscillation (LCO) problems. A fast and accurate aeroelastic prediction is required to identify the critical LCO configurations given the massive number of aircraft with store combinations short-time frame demanded by rapid military responses when facing todays ever-changing internation ...

  2. High-Sensitivity Monolithic Silicon CMOS APD and ROIC

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF14AT13

    ABSTRACT: In this effort, Freedom Photonics will develop a high-sensitivity high-resolution coherent imaging system based on a Si avalanche photodiode (APD) array and corresponding bias and read-out electronics. This will be a monolithic APD and ROIC (readout-integrated-circuit) focal plane array (FPA) system. We start from a proven high-performance CMOS electronics backplane and build the photon ...

  8. Electrically Small Multiferroic Antennas

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT12

    ABSTRACT: We exploit recent advances in magnetoelectric/piezoelectric (ME/PE) composite materials to enable the development of efficient sub-wavelength radio frequency (RF) transmitting antennas. With these materials will be possible to achieve high dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability, slow electromagnetic propagation and low RF loss tangents. Together, these special properties m ...

  10. Shear Sensors for High Speed, High Temperature Flow Applications

    SBC: SILICON AUDIO, LLC            Topic: AF14AT08

    ABSTRACT: The principal thrust of the proposed research is the development and testing of a high-speed (MHz range) sensor for measuring the shear stress beneath a hypersonic boundary layer at elevated temperatures. The development of such a sensor will enable the Air-Force to develop more robust empirical models for predicting the wall shear stress in complex 3-D flows. The proposed sensor inno ...
