  2. Ambient Power Supply for On-Board Vehicle Health Monitoring MEMS Sensors

    SBC: AMBIENT MICRO            Topic: AF06170

    To support its use of MEMS sensors for vehicle health monitoring, the Air Force seeks to couple the harvesting of ambient energy sources with a micro energy storage device. Microbatteries have demonstrated their viability as a high density power source, but their short operating life limits their usefulness. To extend the operating life of microbatteries, ambient energy sources can be used to co ...

  3. Response Management for Counterspace and SSA Operations

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: AF06283

    The foundation of any counterspace capability is space/counterspace situation awareness. Existing AFRL/VS funded efforts have established a foundation for robust, multi-level situation awareness through multi-source, multi-level, data fusion. However, situation awareness is only useful to the extent that it informs response to threats, whether natural or man-made. AFRL/VS Space Awareness & Respons ...

  4. Hardware Accelerated Simulator for Scattering from Electrically Large Objects and Scenes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05220

    Over the past few decades, computational electromagnetics (CEM) researchers have been making steady progress towards the development of efficient algorithms, such as the Method of Moments (MoM), for simulating scattering from electrically large targets. Unfortunately, such techniques have proved too computationally demanding because they require the solution of an often very large and dense matri ...

  5. Development of Advanced Polymer Based Photonic Crystal Devices and Fabrication Processes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05135

    Photonic crystals have led the way for miniaturizing application specific optical integrated circuit (ASOIC) to a scale comparable to the wavelength of light which in turn made them a good candidate for next generation high-density optical systems and interconnects. Polymer based Photonic Crystal structures have potential applications in optical integrated circuits, optoelectronics, optical switch ...

  6. Reprogrammable High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF06062

    Field Programmable Gate Arrays are widely recognized as an attractive technology for satisfying the needs of U.S. Government Crypto Modernization programs. However, FPGA technology creates some interesting challenges in terms of reliability and assurance of crypto implementations. In the late 1990s, the National Security Agency recognized the need to significantly improve the state-of-the-art for ...

  7. Panchromatic Image Chip Classifier

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF06222

    NOVASOL is pleased to propose development of an algorithm for enhancing hyperspectral target detection performance in reconnaissance imagery using spectral detection combined with spatial processing of auxiliary panchromatic high-resolution imagery. The exploitation of both spectral and spatial data from multiple bore-sighted sensors represents a heretofore untapped opportunity to improve detecti ...

  8. Fuze Jerk Reduction and Optimum Deceleration from a Compliant Material System

    SBC: LRK Associates            Topic: AF05166

    Experimental tests in Phase I have shown the fuze shock absorber system capable of reducing shock peaks by a factor of three, and the associated jerk by an order of magnitude. The Phase II work will be devoted to exploring the performance space of this jerk-reduction system as a function of its material properties and physical configuration, as well as the fuze mass. LRK Associates will design a ...

  9. Fast Algorithms for Imaging Simulation through Turbulence

    SBC: LRK Associates            Topic: AF05009

    The Phase I work has shown the technical feasibility of creating new, equivalent-accuracy algorithms for optical simulation with smaller operations counts than existing Fourier methods. These will be helpful in speeding up extended scene imaging simulations used in laser weapons' systems performance evaluations. However, the computational efficiency advantage of these new algorithms over Fourier ...

  10. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...
