  2. ADIDRUS: Using Deception to Protect and Defend UAVs

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Unmanned vehicles are becoming an increasingly valuable tool within the Department of Defense, and related technologies are beginning to appear in commercial systems. As their utilization grows, these unmanned systems will become a significant target for cyber attack. Indeed, existing Defense Department unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have already been subjected to attack by various adversaries. ...

  3. Versatile Structural Radiation Shielding (VSRS)

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF121062

    ABSTRACT: The Phase I Versatile Structural Radiation Shielding (VSRS) Effort has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of 3D printing multifunctional spacecraft structures with integral multi-layer, multi-material, minimum-mass radiation shielding. We developed novel space-compatible materials to enable 3D printing with combinations of low-Z and high-Z materials, developed advanced FDM techni ...

  4. Rifling Gun Barrels with Waterjets

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A12014

    Refractory alloys such as tantalum-tungsten and ceramics are being pursued as a solution to high temperature erosive wear of gun barrels. However rifling of these materials with conventional broaching and electrochemical milling is proving to be difficult. This proposal seeks to demonstrate an innovative alternate grooving method, abrasive waterjet grooving. Waterjets are normally used to cut c ...

  5. Wide Spectral Response Nanocrystal-Sensitized Focal Plane Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF121019

    ABSTRACT: A compact night vision imaging technology will be developed that responds in the visible through the short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) and medium-wavelength infrared (MWIR) spectral range from 0.4 to 5µm wavelengths. The detectors are made using low cost deposition techniques, at atmosphere, using CMOS readout integrated circuits (ROICs). The imager does not require bump bond hybridizat ...

  6. High Performance Thrusters for DACS Propulsion

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA11021

    Carbon-fiber reinforced silicon carbide matrix (SiC/Cf) composite was identified as the leading thruster construction material for SDACS for SM3-Block IIB. For SDACS propulsion applications, SiC/Cf composite surfaces must be hermetically sealed and SiC/Cf composite must be joined to each other and to refractory metal alloys for thruster construction. In Phase I we developed novel joining alloys ...

  8. Mitigation of the Effects of the Ionosphere on UEWR

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA11034

    UHF radars at high latitude observe significant perturbations in measurements of amplitude, phase, range, and Doppler, caused by ionospheric disturbances. Without mitigation of these effects, there is no doubt that the natural ionosphere is a major issue in the performance of the important radar functions (detection, track, classification, intercept support) of the Thule Upgraded Early Warning ra ...

  9. FRC Multi-Mode Thruster Validation Demonstration

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF112177

    ABSTRACT: Modern military space systems use high specific impulse (Isp) propulsion systems to provide efficient station keeping and large delta-V orbital maneuvers. A multi-mode propulsion system utilizes a single propellant such as AF-M315E to provide high thrust as well as a 1000-4000 s Isp. By utilizing the same propellant in multiple thrusters an entire new range of mission operations are pos ...
