  2. Method of Locating Unexploded Ordnance

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: AF083236

    The Unexploded Ordnance Asset RFID System (UARS) is an active low frequency RFID tracking system designed for locating unexploded ordinance (UXO) on the battlefield.  The system is a passive thin collar RFID tag that is placed onto the munition during manufacture and becomes activated after delivery on target.  Once activated, the RFID tag enters a passive listening mode, waiting for a specific ...

  3. Next Generation Reconfigurable Field Programmable Gate Array

    SBC: Analytic Design Laboratories            Topic: AF083187

    Analytic Design Laboratories proposes a Next Generation FPGA that is deterministically place and routable.  Conventional FPGAs rely on synthetic annealing to optimize function placement and connection routing.  Synthetic annealing randomly moves functions and connecting paths to improve circuit performance to an acceptable level.  The side effect of random improvement is jumbled signal flow and ...

  4. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...

  5. Weapon System Intermittent Fault Detection

    SBC: LiveWire Test Labs, Inc.            Topic: AF083113

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a feasible design for intermittent electrical fault detection and location for a weapons system using analog S/SSTDR for continual monitoring. We have already demonstrated the feasibility of the basic S/SSTDR technology for live aircraft in flight where analog real-time, randomly occurring, anomalous or intermittent age-related failure events are common ...

  6. Thin film thermocouple for high temperature application

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: AF083260

    Temperature sensors that can monitor temperature directly on various locations in gas turbine engines are necessary for prognosis and diagnosis of engine conditions during operation.  However, reliable temperature sensors working under the harsh conditions of jet propulsion are not currently available.  We propose to develop thin film thermocouples using materials which are stable at high temper ...

  7. Optical Switching Fabric

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083209

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical switching fabric technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. Specifically, this program will evaluate two OptiComp candidate optical transceiver technologies against a Serial Rapid IO switching fabric. A down-selection to one optical transceiver technology will be made. Then, a simulation of that Serial ...

  8. Terabit Per Second Optical Router for Space-Based Satellite Network

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083191

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical routing technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. This program will investigate optical routing at speeds to from 3.125 ro 10 Gbps per channel, with a wavelength/channel density from 4 to 16 wavelengths. Models will be constructed for these regimes, and an experimental demonstration of an 8-wavelength ...

  10. Autonomous Aerial Recovery of Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: AF08T014

    ddddThe objective of this project is to develop a strategy to recover micro air vehicles into a flying aircraft. Our solution combines three key technologies that have received significant research attention in recent years, namely towed cable systems, cooperative control, and vision-based terminal guidance. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a flying-aircraft mothership pulling ...
