  1. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. Model-Based Architecture for Responsive Spacecraft Autonomy

    SBC: Okean Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF131092

    ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses the need for solutions that enable higher levels of spacecraft autonomy to reliably maintain operational capabilities. Random hardware faults and hostile threats necessitate autonomous systems capable of responding quickly and effectively to these threats and unexpected events. The proposed research will develop an autonomy software architecture that enables evol ...

  4. Implementation of real-time high-resolution extended EUV solar spectral irradiance forecast

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT11

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to achieve an operational capability to produce daily forecasts of the extended extreme ultraviolet solar spectral irradiance (XUV/EUV/FUV SSI, hereafter EUV SSI) by delivering quantitative expectations of the EUV SSI at high-spectral resolution for every day in the period of at least a week after the day the forecast is issued. The forecasted EUV SSI i ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. High-Efficiency Waste Heat Removal System (WHRS) for Low-Observable Heat Rejection from Aircraft

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF131009

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop for the Air Force a high-efficiency Waste Heat Removal System (WHRS) that removes large amounts of waste heat from aircraft with negligible impacts on signature and aerodynamic performance. Our WHRS absorbs heat from aircraft thermal loads, including a Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system that absorbs and stores heat from the cooling system of a High Energy Laser ( ...

  7. Multi-kW Fiber Lasers Based on Novel Light Guide Combiners

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: The efficient coherent beam combination of a master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) system requires a reduction in non-linearities of the power amplifier sections. Fiber non-linearities, such as stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) and stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), provide an upper limit on the operating power of kW-class fiber laser systems. These non-linear effects can be redu ...

  8. Characterizing the Impact of Ionospheric Wave Structures on Coordinate Registration.

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF131094

    ABSTRACT: Coordinate Registration (CR) of OTHR targets requires accurate real-time ionospheric modeling coupled with HF propagation calculations to convert radar-measured target signal delays and beam steers to geographical position. Our team is the developer of one of the most sophisticated ionospheric data assimilation capabilities currently in existence, GPSII (GPS Ionospheric Inversion; pron ...

  9. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT: In this SBIR effort we will develop a packaging process and demonstrate (Phase I) a prototype of high power Photodiode (PD) that has a normal incident, pigtailed fiber input and a coaxial RF output that operates from DC to>60GHz. We will apply and extend (Phase II) the aforementioned packaging process to single PD, balanced PD and array of PDs that work from DC through entire W-band. De ...

  10. Coherent Detection Eye-Safe LIDAR Systems Based on Large Mode Area Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: AF131150

    ABSTRACT: nLIGHT proposes the development of of an all-fiber, master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) configuration that will meet the Air Force requirements for a 10 mJ, 300 ns pulsed laser source. With the exception of the output power amplifier fiber, this device will be based on commercial off the shelf (COTS) components. This proposal is based on an Er-doped fiber amplifier that is res ...
