  2. Tunable Filters for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS)

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: AF073065

    The proposal describes a miniaturized tunable filter technology for wideband tuning in the 500 MHz to 3 GHz bands. The filters use a novel actuator to achieve a combination of wide tuning range and high-Q of the resonant elements. The filter technology can be integrated into a small surface mount package, as described in the proposal. The technology is a major step for reducing the SWAP of front- ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Longer Length Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) for Electric Power Applications

    SBC: Nanocomp Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF073061

    Nanocomp has demonstrated an extraordinary increase in conductivity of continuous carbon nanotube wires to over 2 x 10^6 S/m. In addition we have demonstrated fabrication of more than a kilometer of 3 tex SWCNT CNT wire per day. Ribbon conductors made also been developed from 3 foot by 6 foot SWCNT or DWCNT sheets. These sheets are in daily production at a readiness level over 4 in automated equip ...

  6. Non-Metallic Conductive Material for ESD/EMI Applications

    SBC: Nanocomp Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF083C071

    Nanocomp proposes to develop a clear understanding of the relationship between the EMI and ESD parameters of BMI (5250-4) and Epoxy (977-3) prepregged very large, ~4 foot by 8 foot panels or rolls. These panels are formed from DWCNT and SWCNT sheets bonded to graphite epoxy or to S glass using a commercial autoclave process. In particular we propose to determine the relationship between insertion ...

  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 ...
