  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small shift of the X-ray line position that ...

  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. Directed Energy Wind Tunnel Test Methodology

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to implement a series of mechanical and optical sensor measurements in a wind tunnel test section to isolate aero-optical disturbances from contaminating tunnel disturbances. We will develop a design for the necessary sensors and the number/location of these sensors on the tunnel observation windows. Particular attention will be ...

  4. Aerosol Jet Printing of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube Transistors on Plastic Substrate

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: AF09BT26

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this phase II proposal is to develop a commercial platform for printing high performance, single-walled carbon nanotube transistor circuits on large-area plastic substrate. Automated processes will be developed for the room temperature printing of metal, semiconductor, and dielectric materials with micron-scale alignment accuracy. The transistor performance will be enha ...

  5. Scalable Conjunction Processing using Spatiotemporally Indexed Ephemeris Data

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF112050

    ABSTRACT: Stellar Science has developed innovative techniques for satellite conjunction processing using spatiotemporally indexed ephemeris data. Our algorithms first insert each satellite into a spatially aware data structure, such as a K-D Tree or a Spatial Hash Table, and then it scans the data structure looking for satellite conjunctions. While traditional approaches to satellite conjunctio ...

  6. Model-Based Systems Engineering Tools for Laser Systems

    SBC: TIMELIKE SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: AF112012

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a comprehensive, integrated software framework and toolset to support model-based engineering (MBE) of laser weapons systems. To be effective, MBE requires robust underlying modeling and simulation technologies capable of modeling all the pertinent systems, subsystems, components, effects, and interactions at any level of fidelity that may be required in order to ...

  7. Scalable and Extensible Neural Sense-making Engine (SENSE)

    SBC: NUGENT, MICHAEL ALEXANDER            Topic: AF121049

    ABSTRACT: In our phase-1 effort we proved feasible our Anti-Hebbian and Hebbian (AHaH) sparse-spiking framework for sense making applications. Demonstrated capabilities include optimal pattern classification, anomaly detection and complex temporal signal prediction. In the phase-2 effort we will develop a production ready Scalable and Extensible Neural Sense-making Engine (SENSE) built from clust ...

  8. Integrated Collaborative Mission Planning, Briefing and Debriefing Tools for Crews and Teams in LVC Operations

    SBC: TECHFLOW SCIENTIFIC            Topic: AF131019

    ABSTRACT: Mission planning, briefing, and debriefing in live virtual constructive (LVC) exercises has become a distributed operation. These exercises produce mission data that must be disseminated to all local and remote players for instructional and research purposes. The warfighter"s ability to modify and distribute this mission data is currently limited. A fully distributed and automaticall ...

  9. Efficient Human Posing and Morphing for Electromagnetic Analysis

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF131029

    ABSTRACT: As the use of electromagnetic devices has skyrocketed in modern society, so too have concerns about the effects of these devices on the human body. With today"s technology Air Force and other researchers are only able to model the electromagnetic effects on the human body of communications, medicine, security, or military devices in a very limited set of scenarios due to limitations in ...
