  1. Fiber Optic Sensor System for Machinery Vibration Monitoring and Diagnosis

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: AF19CT008

    IFOS proposes an approach to developing an optical fiber Bragg grating (FBG)-based real-time instrumentation system for machinery vibration monitoring and diagnosis. IFOS’ key innovation is in the use of an advanced fiber optic sensing system that can make temperature and vibration measurements, with vibration signature identification and statistics tracking techniques for the assessment of ...

  2. Information Extraction for New Emerging Noisy User-generated Micro-Text

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: AF19BT006

    Neural networks have proved highly effective at extracting information from text. However, noisy microtext has proved to be particularly difficult because low-level syntactic cues much less useful. In this project, we propose to explore ways of incorporating strong semantic, expectation-based models into a neural net architecture to improve performance on microtext extraction. In phase I, we will ...

  3. Test Rig for Effective Reproduction of Inlet Distorted Supersonic Flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF19BT012

    The subsonic diffuser duct of a modern tactical aircraft is the most difficult component to verify performance at off-design conditions, because of the large cost of testing/modeling complete installations at large scale. It is desirable to effectively reproduce the flow at the end of a supersonic inlet for interfacing with a direct-connect subsonic duct rig. The CFDRC team proposes to deliver a r ...

  5. Adaptable Cyber Defense for Autonomous Air Operations

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: AF19CT003

    Cyber defense is difficult, but presents a particularly thorny problem for legacy systems, including legacy embedded systems, where in many such cases source code may not even be available. In this project, we proposed to investigate and extend a pattern-based approach recently developed by USC-ISI for analyzing and retrofitting binary code to protect against potential attacks. In this project, we ...

  6. Transfer Learning and Deep Transfer Learning for Military Applications

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF19CT004

    Aided Target Recognition (AiTR) algorithms augment human decision-making, but require a large database of labeled targets for training. Applied to new domains, these algorithms fail to transfer knowledge and require substantial retraining. Areté and University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH) propose the development of the Domain Extracted Feature Transfer (DEFT) Network to transfer knowledge from a ...

  7. Dynamic Bias APD Receiver Array

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: AF19CT006

    The program has two trusts: (1) Using dynamic biasing to address arbitrary pulse trains, such as would be present in LIDAR and other forms of EO/IR imaging and periodic pulse trains, such as in telecommunications; and (2) Developing an APD the meets program requirements such as a cutoff wavelength >1.6 m, low dark current, low excess noise and a >200 K operating temperature. In the proposed ...

  8. Super-High-Resolution, Distributed Photonic Sensors for Aerospace Platforms

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: AF19CT010

    IFOS and STTR partner Stanford University propose an innovative fiber-optic sensor array leveraging the latest advances in slow-light fiber Bragg gratings (SL-FBG). SL-FBGs substantially improve upon the sensitivity of commercially proven conventional FBGs (C-FBG) by more than 3 orders of magnitude and can be interrogated at megahertz rates. SL-FBG differ from C-FBG in their refractive index modul ...

  9. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Zenith Aerospace Inc.            Topic: AF19CT010

    The objective of this proposal is to investigate the feasibility and to increase the awareness of the potential stakeholder with Air Force on the technology of a multifunctional structural battery that was originally developed by a Team at Stanford University. The multifunctional structural battery embeds Li-ion battery materials into high-strength composites material. The structural battery not o ...

  10. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Great Lakes Crystal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF19CT010

    We propose to perform customer discovery in Phase I to identify quantum grade single crystal diamond requirements for future Air Force quantum technologies with an aim to extend our state-of-the-art diamond synthesis process to demonstrate prototype quantum grade diamond in Phase II and to establish a domestic supply of quantum grade diamond in Phase III.
