  1. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF182001

    Accurate and timely weather information for situational awareness is critical to the success of Air Force missions. To date, space-borne sensors for weather forecasting primarily include visible, infrared, and microwave instruments. While visible and infrared sensors have reached a high level of maturity and performance, those operating in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum conti ...

  3. Tools to Enable Systematic Testing of Avionics Cyber Security

    SBC: VIGILANT CYBER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF182102

    Vigilant Cyber Systems, Inc. (VCS) proposes to design and develop the Framework for Avionics Security Testing (FAST) to ensure the creation of cyber resilient aircraft systems by reducing testing complexity, reducing testing cost, and generating more valuable results. Just as Metasploit is an industry standard framework supporting offensive cyber on traditional IT systems, FAST is designed as a fr ...

  4. Small-Pitch XSWIR APD LADAR Receivers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF182107

    InGaAs-based extended short-wavelength infrared (XSWIR)-sensitive photodiodes and avalanche-photodiode (APD) detectors will be developed for use in laser rangefinders (LRFs), imagers, and small-pitch multifunction ladar receivers. Through a series of epitaxial growth campaigns, the cutoff wavelength of InGaAs detectors will be extended into the XSWIR while retaining the advantageous cost structure ...

  5. Development of High Power High Speed WBGS Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch (PCSS) Devices

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF183005

    This work is focused on identifying the tradeoffs associated with modifying Kyma’s existing photoconductive semiconductor switch (PCSS) technology in order to tailor the technology for applications of interest to the Air Force. The currently available PCSS devices were designed without any specific application in mind. Since there are inherent tradeoffs in terms of power handling, optical p ...

  6. Observational Motivation and Engagement Generalized Appliance (OMEGA)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: AF183006

    The U.S. Air Force trains and educates a large and diverse workforce to meet requirements across a complex array of missions. Early-stage training in many Air Force Specialty Codes can consist of large corpora of foundational, static material, so training that motivates airmen is a necessary element in helping ensure a supply of qualified personnel in mission-critical areas like aerospace maintena ...

  7. An Alternate Corrosion Resistant Coating to be Applied to Magnesium Components

    SBC: UNITED PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF183018

    The Air Force needs to identify and qualify a corrosion resistant coating applicable to magnesium gearboxes, covers and other secondary power system parts. Current coatings, considered corrosion resistant, are often barely better than no coating at all. According to the web sources for FY 2008 – 2009, the cost of corrosion to the Air Force was $4.5 billion, with 24% of maintenance cost cont ...

  8. Design Framework for Optimized Multifunctional Coatings

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: AF183034

    A design framework for optimized multifunctional coatings requires a fundamental understanding of the physics at multiple length scales. Multifunctional coating systems, like thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) for engine high temperature exhaust regions need to be designed across these multiple scales and as an integrated system. Much of the oxidation, thermal cycling, and damage between the ceramic- ...

  9. Open Call for Robotics, 3D Printing, Autonomous Systems, and Other Immersive Training Solutions with Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: Tucker Innovations Inc.            Topic: AF191004

    Tucker Innovations has jointly developed a robot metal additive path planning software called SculptPrint RAM with its partners Lincoln Electric and Wolf Robotics. An industrial robot with an arc welding end effector is transformed into a metal 3D printer through immersive 3D software for path planning. SculptPrint RAM path planning software allows a minimally trained user to produce a tool path f ...

  10. 6U CubeSat EO/IR Solutions for Operational Weather Demo

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF191006

    In this Phase I Air Force SBIR program, Phase Sensitive Innovations seeks deployment of a hyperspectral microwave photonic radiometer operating full band at V-Band (50-75 GHz) and/or G-Band (110-300 GHz) with 1 GHz spectral resolution on a 6U CubeSat bus in polar orbit for remote sensing applications. Our payload consumes about 2U, while 4U are available for avionics (e.g. attitude control, power, ...
