  1. SAGES II: System Acquisition Guidance from Expert Systems

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF112019

    ABSTRACT:The high costs and inherent dangers of live training with air platforms have motivated the increasing use of simulation-based training. However, selecting a system to effectively meet training objectives can be challenging, particularly one that must blend multiple disparate technologies. Among these challenges is the need to acquire visual display systems that optimally support training ...

  2. Lightweight AEHF Modem for Manpack Terminals

    SBC: ORB Analytics            Topic: AF131138

    ABSTRACT:The Protected Tactical Waveform (PTW) promises low-cost communications for dismounted forces who have a critical need for secure, anti-jam (AJ), and low-probability-of-intercept (LPI) satellite communications (SATCOM).To allow dismounted forces to leverage the benefit of PTW requires very low size, weight, and power (SWaP) PTW modems capable of operating at up to 256 kbps.Unfortunately, c ...

  3. System for Measuring and Reporting Aircraft Ullage Oxygen

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF131164

    ABSTRACT:Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with F-35 Prime Contractor Lockheed Martin Aerospace Corp. (LM Aero), proposes to build, develop, test, and evaluate a sensor system for measuring and reporting in real-time the oxygen concentration in the fuel tank ullage of advanced tactical aircraft such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Previously, PSI developed, and advanced to TRL 5, an ...

  4. Ground Based Sensor for measurement of V and W band satellite link propagation channel

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: AF131045

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II SBIR proposal describes our effort to develop a combined radiometer and radar sensor to estimate total atmospheric path loss for potential satellite links at V-band and W-band (71-86 GHz). Termed WAXRR, for W-band and X-band Radar Radiometer, this system will be used to generate statistics of total atmospheric loss with a dynamic range exceeding 20 dB. The radiometer sect ...

  6. Advanced Propulsion and Power Concepts for Large Size Class Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: ENGINE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF131160

    ABSTRACT: Desired tactical requirements for unmanned aerial systems (UASs) exceed current capabilities for performance, reliability, maintainability, cost and supportability. Mission requirements such as extended endurance, increased power for auxiliary/sensor systems, and low altitude, low speed maneuverability are becoming paramount, specifically, in the 10,000 lb class of vehicles. These desir ...

  7. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  8. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  9. A uMECS miniature blower for respiratory protection systems, Phase II

    SBC: Vibrant Composites Inc.            Topic: CBD14103

    Air management solutions capable of reducing heat and moisture burden are not suitable for integration in wearable respiratory protection systems due to excessive weight, volume, and power requirements of existing technologies. Vibrant Composites proposes applying its unique uMECS manufacturing technology towards development of an ultra-lightweight and power efficient miniature blower. Fundamental ...
