  1. Adaptive and Smart Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT018

    The focus of this STTR program is the development and maturation of a novel, room-temperature process to fabricate multi-layer metal-polymer (including PVDF and other smart materials) composites in an additive approach. This overcomes the limitation arising from the large temperature difference between metal and polymer manufacturing processes, and presents a new technology for additive manufactur ...

  2. Adaptive Markov Inference Game Optimization (AMIGO) for Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF17CT02

    Space superiority requires space protection and space situational awareness (SSA), which rely on rapid and accurate space object behavioral and operational intent discovery. The presence of adversaries in addition to real-time and hidden information constraints greatly complicates the decision-making process in controlling both ground-based and space-based Air Force surveillance assets. The focus ...

  3. Additive Manufactured Smart Structures with Discrete Embedded Sensors

    SBC: 3DFlexible Inc            Topic: A17AT024

    Recent advances in 3D structure printing and 3D direct printed electronics have widened the scope of possibilities for the Internet of Things (IoT). New near room temperature 3D direct ink writing (DIW) additive manufacturing (AM) printing processes allow many different type of sensors and they can be embedded anywhere in a structure, which offers several benefits. 1. Protection: sensors face degr ...

  4. Advanced Hit Detection Systems

    SBC: FREENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA13015

    FreEnt Technologies, Inc. (FreEnt) and Johns Hopkins Universitys Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) are proposing a multiple-hit detection sensor called the Optical Lethality Measurement System (OLMS). This system is based on the Planar Optical Penetration Sensor (POPS) technology (originally developed and patented by APL) and prior art associated with the Blast Initiation Detector (BID). The BID is ...

  5. Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design Methods for Compact Optical Transceiver

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A15AT001

    As the warfighter is increasingly using more highly integrated instruments, e.g. a laser rangefinder (LRF) combined with a laser designator and an imager, the need to decrease the size of these components becomes more important.Compact small munition applications of rangefinders particularly place an emphasis on size of the optical front end.In order to make the transceiver more compact, special a ...

  6. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N15AT014

    SA Photonics has developed a concept for our Multiple Optical Beam Landing System (MOBLS) to provide autonomous landing of aircraft in RF denied environments. MOBLS utilizes multiple, redundant methods to determine the real-time location and bearing of the aircraft relative to the carrier-based landing strip. By having built in redundant modalities, MOBLS provides highly reliable landing informati ...

  8. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface Em ...

  9. 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 ...
