  1. Method of Locating Unexploded Ordnance

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: AF083236

    UARS (Unexploded ordnance Asset RFID System) is a secure, active radio frequency identification (RFID) system that when equipped to munitions provides a method for underground geolocation in the event that munitions do not explode. Additionally UARS provides a method for authenticated wireless inventory of munitions in storage. UARS is comprised of rugged, long-life, queriable RFID tags that ar ...

  2. Space and Operational Environmental Protection for Thin Multijunction Solar Cells

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF093092

    The recent development of colorless, transparent polyimides provides a break-out solution for the operational and environmental protection of thin multijunction solar cells. The incorporation of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes into the polyimide backbone renders these systems radiation hard toward proton, electron and atomic oxygen degradation. The POSS polyimides also exhibit 5x improved im ...

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

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083191

    The goal of the proposed Phase II effort is to transition the optical router and switch design investigations in Phase 1 to a demonstrable hybrid router/switch design that incorporates Spacewire Router (or similar) control plane logic into a compact, multi-gigabit optical interconnect for satellite networks that may be extended to terabit per second bandwidth regimes. BENEFIT: Enables high-speed ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
