  1. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  2. Electronically Dimmable Eye Protection Devices (EDEPD)

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF18BT003

    Electronically dimmable materials with sufficiently strong visible transmission shift, color neutrality, durability and switching speeds have eluded development since the search began nearly half a century ago. We demonstrate the potential for dynamic optical dimming using plasmonic nanostructures with electrodynamic simulations of promising plasmonic metamaterial architectures. In order to achiev ...

  3. High Speed High Accuracy Artificial Neural Networks for UAV based Target Identification

    SBC: UHV TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF18BT007

    The machine learning and artificial intelligence community has recently garnered much attention for ground breaking performance of novel neural network architectures for self-driving cars. One of the machine learning methods used in self-driving cars is semantic segmentation. In this fashion each pixel in an image is label with a class, allowing for contour-based image segmentation which is differ ...

  4. Low-Energy Adiabatic Circuits for Space Applications

    SBC: SIGNAL SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: AF18BT013

    Adiabatic logic-based energy-conserving circuits have potential to significantly improve energy efficiency. Adiabatic circuits recycle charge stored in load capacitance resulting in lower power dissipation as compared to conventional CMOS. However, these circuits have only targeted low-frequency operations. Research is needed to develop adiabatic logic circuits for high performance applications wi ...

  5. Ultra Wideband Receiver (UWR) – Sample Clock Modulation

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF18CT003

    Modern electronic warfare (EW) employs agile, dynamic, convert waveforms. It has become challenging for legacy electronic intelligence (ELINT) receivers to intercept such waveforms. To cover a wide frequency band, many frequencies must be scanned rapidly. Therefore, the probability of intercepting by the super heterodyne receiver is limited by the intermediate frequency (IF) bandwidth and tuning s ...

  6. Portable Bioprinted Organoids for Physiological Monitoring

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF19AT002

    hazardous chemicals such as JP8, chromium, and byproducts of led-free frangible ammunition and to hazardous environments. Of the many dangers Airmen face, the hypoxia-like unexplained physiological events pilots face are some of the most dangerous and elusive. Current wearable sensors cannot decouple complex, interdependent in vivo response. We propose to develop (design, fabricate, test, and demo ...

  7. Multi Scale Multi Fidelity Carbon-Carbon Manufacturing Process Modeling with Data Fusion

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF19AT021

    The proposed effort aims to deliver a novel process model for carbon-carbon manufacturing to determine thermo-mechanical properties of these materials and their components, thereby enabling a faster cycle for material development for hypersonic platforms. The proposed solution consists of (1) requirement and functionality analyses, (2) a six-level model representing the key steps of the manufactur ...

  8. Room Temperature Quantum Memory

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Quantum computer technology is so critical and strategic that the Air Force Research Laboratory is itself working on a quantum bit focused on the trapped ytterbium (Yb+) ion. The current technology based on entangling electrons, photons, or ions are challenging to put together in multiple qubits. To make a qubit stable, it is essential to protect it from outside interferences that can disrupt the ...

  9. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF17AT029

    Current fielded sensor protection is limited to fixed wavelength filters. Broadband filters designed to circumvent multi-wavelength laser threats are plagued by low transmittance, which degrades the sensitivity and performance of the sensor. Future warfighter threats include frequency agile lasers and thus have the potential of defeating fixed filters. Self-activating (passive) devices where prote ...

  10. Flexible Broad-band Optical Device

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT010

    Oceanit proposes to first is to use radiative transfer techniques pioneered for astrophysics, instead of Monte Carlo simulation. In particular, we used a variant of the Bohm-Vitense method, which expresses the solution as a weighted sum of basis functions, allowing us to convert the radiative transfer equation into a set of linear equations that we can solve with standard linear algebra methods. S ...
