  1. Passively Deployed Lightweight Solar Array Structure for Thinned-Multijunction Solar Cells


    Current deployable solar array systems are based on designs that have been in existence for more than 30 years.  In general, these heritage designs can be divided into two classes: 1) hinged-panel arrays, which are mechanically simple but mass inefficient, and 2) tensioned-membrane arrays, which are mechanically complex but mass efficient.  Arguably, no deployable solar array designs exist that ...

  2. Design-Hardened Radiation Tolerant Microelectronics

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: AF073094

    Producing components that satisfy all of the BMDS space and interceptor environment specs traditionally has been not only costly but also untimely. One of the most difficult design constraints is making the components unaffected by the radiation environments of space. We propose to develop and demonstrate a radiation hardened ASIM3 in the IBM 9FLP process. This will be accomplished using the St ...

  3. Advanced Insider Threat Detection and Response

    SBC: Distributed Infinity Inc            Topic: AF073033

    Advanced Insider Threat Detection and Response is a breakthrough game changing analysis and response capability addressing integrated attacks at a fusion level 3 (identity, path, and intent).  Previous efforts including the Phase 1 demonstrated that high level abstraction of network and host data is not only possible, but measureable and verifiable.  The Phase 1 prototype defines and detects cou ...

  4. Multi-Target Track and ID with Persistent Hyperspectral Data

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF081071

    Military operations in urban warfare provide an added emphasis to effectively detect, track, and ID ground targets in challenging environments.  Given the high dynamic nature of ground targets and the ambiguity that may result from closely spaced targets, incorporation of feature data from sensors such as hyperpsectral imagery (HSI) cameras provides a means to disambiguate the tracking of these t ...

  5. Low Cost Deployable Reflector Support Structure

    SBC: STARSYS, INC.            Topic: AF073101

    The National Security Space Office has identified low cost 5 m aperture RF spacecraft payloads as a transformational space technology. The Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) office is developing a "common aperture" RF system architecture which would enable $20M class RF payloads meeting a variety of ORS mission requirements. Two critical elements of this architecture are correspondingly low cost ...

  6. An Improved Non-Wood Wheel Chock Design for USAF Operational Aircraft

    SBC: RIMSTAR            Topic: AF071309

    The currently accepted aircraft wheel chock in use at most USAF and other military facilities is made of wood which routinely chips, cracks, becomes waterlogged and requires significant maintenance such as refurbishment and painting.  In this Phase II SBIR project. Rimstar, Inc, and its sister company, Checkers Industrial Safety Products will design a non-wood wheel chock that will overcome these ...

  7. A Low Cost Production Process for Large High Temperature Polymer Matrix Composites


    Eltron Research & Development Inc. and the Southwest Research Institute® will focus on three primary objectives during Phase II of this Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) STTR program, building upon the success realized during Phase I work. First, we will be prepared to transition High Temperature Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (HTVARTM) needed in Phase III, by optimizing and ...

  8. Cryogenic High Power Laser Pump Diodes

    SBC: DIRECTED ENERGY SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF073003

    ABSTRACT: Directed Energy Solutions (DES) is proposing to develop a cryogenically cooled diode laser stack system. In the proposed effort DES will design, fabricate, test and delivery a cryogenically cooled multiple diode laser stack system. Output powers of the laser system of 6 kW are anticipated with a scaling option at the 12 kW level. At the end of proposed effort the system will be deliv ...

  9. Adaptive Structures for Micro Munition Platforms


    The U.S. Air Force has significant interest in the development of adaptive structures for micro munition platforms.  However, power, mass and cost constraints significantly limits the applicability of existing adaptive structure concepts for these smaller platforms.  To address these challenges, CTD is proposing the use of solid-state, electrically-driven actuators that require minimal power and ...

  10. Wideband,Lightweight, Beamformer

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF081031

    Narrow beam electronically scanned phased array antennas play a vital role in many defense communications, radar and EW systems.  However, because of the cost and complexity of the constituent components, as well as the typical array manufacturing processes, phased arrays still remain prohibitively expensive for all but the most vital applications.  FIRST RF Corporation has recently developed a ...
