  1. Low-Cost Chaos Radar

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A11aT001

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) and Duke University propose to extend the recent developments of matched filtered chaos into a low-cost high range-resolution chaotic waveform radar. In the Phase I effort, PRA and Duke will design the radar system and build a prototype waveform generator that will exploit three essential properties of chaotic waveforms that can be applied to enhance r ...

  2. TerrAdapt: A system for autonomous terrain classification and terrain-adaptive driving

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today"s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mobility due to the following key features: 1) TerrAdap ...

  3. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this program is to develop an atom chip with a dual integrated and miniaturized optical and electromagnetic capability. We intend to develop a compact atom-chip-based system capable of producing and optically controlling and monitoring ultracold atoms with substantial reduction in complexity, size, weight and power consumption over the present state of the art. As part of ...

  4. The Holographic Sidelobe Canceller: Holographic Radar Processing for Interference Mitigation

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT29

    ABSTRACT: Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are teamed to propose an innovative holographic receiver and processing technology for enhanced radar electronic protection. PRA/GTRI will investigate applying holographic processing to Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Electronically Scanned Arrays (ESAs) in order to mitigate interference such ...

  5. Precise fabrication of photonic integrated systems using low cost nanoimprint process

    SBC: Sinoora Inc.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this STTR proposal, we propose to develop a cost-effective and high-fidelity nanoimprint process for the fabrication of integrated photonics devices. VLSI photonics applications require a hig-level of control on device-to-device uniformity. Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) holds promise to overcome the current technological challenges in lithography while being cost effective at the same time. One ...

  6. XADUR- IP in untrusted fab environments

    SBC: Space Photonics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10A08

    Space Photonics plans on using state of the art failure analysis tools to detect the differneces between the netlist sent to the untrusted foundry and the IC under evaluation. In subsequent versions, SPI plans to identify extranious features and label them for the user

  7. CognitiveReadinessTrainer (CR Trainer) forPromotingTeamEffectiveness

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR4

    The main objective of this SBIR research project is to design and develop the Cognitive Readiness Trainer (CR-Trainer), conceptualized as an integrated training and assessment system that can be used to aid in the rapid formation of cognitively ready, highly effective, and cohesive teams. Our approach for achieving this objective will involve developing an empirically-derived theoretical model of ...

  8. Subjective Multidimensional Workload Index for Distributed Teams: Development Program for the Team Subjective Assessment of Workload (T-SAW)

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR6

    Currently, there is a severe lack of subjective workload measures developed specifically to address the characteristics of distributed ad-hoc teams. The significance of the problem is considerable, given the fact that many organizations (e.g., industry, military, and academia) continue to rely more and more on distributed teams and collaborative technology to accomplish tasks and goals. In respons ...

  9. A modified Local Space Imaging System (LSIS) for near-sun detection

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: AF103113

    ABSTRACT: Aerophysics has developed the Local Space Imaging System (LSIS) to provide proximity detection for spacecraft. The LSIS sensor is a small, bolt-on unit that meets many of the requirements for this solicitation: the LSIS is small, low-power, semi-autonomous, and two LSIS units could cover the entire sky. However, like all passive EO detectors, LSIS has limitations when trying to detect ...

  10. Novel Analytical and Experimental Methods for Evaluating Bolted Joint Repairs in Composite Structure

    SBC: Stratton Composite Solutions            Topic: AF103146

    In today"s composite aircraft structures, bolted joints are frequently subject to abuse, overloads, heat damage, or lightning strikes which can damage both the fastener and the surrounding composite material. This damage, when detected, must be repaired. However, little information currently exists to guide the maintainer in the design, analysis, or certification of the repair. SCS proposes to ...
