  1. Handheld Real Time (RT) Climatic/Environmental Sensor

    SBC: VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF073110

    This proposal will provide immediate decision support data, enabling appropriate and cost effective responses (shut down vs. continue) for training exercises/facilities. Specifically, the DoD requires the ability to “train as we fight and fight as we train”, however training is severely limited by visible emissions compliance in the current regulatory environment. Regulated facilities will hav ...

  2. Enabling the Modeling and Destabilization of Terror Networks using a Novel Rule-Based Boolean Pseudo-Dynamic Approach

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF081021

    The overall objective of the Phase II effort is to design and implement the BANDIT software platform that utilizes structured and unstructured intelligence data for the creation, visualization, and quantitative analysis of terrorist networks. BANDIT will ultimately serve as an enabling technology for conducting offensive operations against terrorist networks by objectively identifying individuals ...

  3. Accurate and Efficient Computation of Electromagnetic Fields and Waves over Unbounded Regions in 3D

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF081001

    ABSTRACT: The proposed project will remove the computational bottleneck in the currently adopted numerical treatment of exterior 3D magnetic fields around high-current pulsed power devices. Existing simulators introduce computationally expensive and nonphysical magnetic diffusion in the exterior region. In contrast, our approach is physically and mathematically rigorous and dramatically improves ...

  4. Integrated wide-bandgap semiconductor photoconductive switch with a terahertz antenna

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF073004

    ABSTRACT: Digital Fusion Solutions and its partners North Carolina State University and Kyma Technologies will undertake the development of a wide band-gap (WBG) semiconductor based laser induced semiconductor switch (LSS). By leveraging expertise in fields of semiconductor manufacturing, antenna design, and physics in the terahertz frequency regime a down selection of materials will be done with ...

  5. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: INVARIANT CORP.            Topic: AF081051

    In contrast to the typical single aperture systems found in weapons today, arthropod compound eyes are multi-aperture optical systems. The compound eye has evolved into many forms, each one of which is specifically adapted to the optical environment of the insect or crustacean that it resides upon. The applications of artificial compound eye sensors range from highly complex applications such as t ...

  6. Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) Common Performance Measurement Development, Tracking, and Warehousing System

    SBC: Lumir Research Institute, Inc.            Topic: AF081014

    The capability to routinely collect and track human performance data across a variety of training, rehearsal, exercise, and test and evaluation environments is a paramount need for the Air Force.  Lumir Research Institute proposes to build the Common Data Acquisition system (CoDA), a software suite that will provide access to performance data from various simulation environments regardless of the ...

  7. The Low Cost Production of Titanium Alloy Powder Directly from Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF081035

    Because of a unique combination of properties, titanium alloys play a key role in DoD systems.  One of the key issues that is preventing more widespread use of Ti-alloys is the cost and cycle time of the Kroll process followed by multiple steps to convert to powders or products.  A viable approach of combined electrochemical and chemical processing has demonstrated in a Phase I program that low ...

  8. Data Authentication and Dissemination using Watermarking for Net-Centric Operations

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD07I07

    The ability to provide positive identification and authentication of data as it is disseminated throughout a network environment remains unsolved for the vast majority of current operational deployments; however, recent advances in steganography and watermarking technology have now begun to provide approaches that address this problem. In combination with traditional encryption, hashing, and time ...

  9. Spatially Registered Multispectral Polarimetric Sensor

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF071239

    Polarization imaging has the potential benefit target detection, discrimination, and tracking applications as well as applications for characterizing and identifying short duration phenomena such as muzzle flash and rocket launches. Spectro-polarimetric systems offer the most comprehensive types of data to characterize fast, high temperature events, such as muzzle flashes, missile exhaust plumes, ...

  10. Ultra-wideband (UWB) Over-the-Horizon (OTH) Radar Array

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: AF073064

    In Phase I, Q-Track assessed the feasibility of a variety of element and array designs for an Over-the-Horizon (OTH) radar array. Q-Track identified a capacitively coupled, connected curtain array as being most promising for the OTH radar application. This array can be implemented with relatively few towers so it will be simple and inexpensive to implement, yet the array concept appears to have th ...
