  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 ...

  5. Nanoparticles to Sequester and Facilitate In Vivo Excretion of Lipophilic Molecules

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are lipophilic agents derived from fungus that pose a significant public health problem around the world. The effects of mycotoxins include loss of human and animal life, increased healthcare and veterinary costs, reduced livestock production, and disposal of contaminated foods and feeds. Mycotoxins, such as aflatoxin and T-2 mycotoxins, have been reported to be weaponized as ...

  6. Quantum Dot Nanocomposite Based Novel Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT26

    ABSTRACT: Energy harvesting has emerged as a critical need for many current and future Air Force missions to enable their long lifetime requirements. Traditional approaches have focused on harvesting solar and vibration (i.e., via the use of piezoelectric materials) energy. More recently, substantial interest has developed in harvesting energy derived from thermal gradients (e.g., due to solar ...

  8. Holographic Radar Signal Processing

    SBC: Chiaro Technologies LLC            Topic: AF10BT29

    ABSTRACT: This STTR Phase I feasibility study is a collaboration between Chiaro Technologies LLC (Chiaro) and the University of Colorado (CU). The program assesses the feasibility of a prototype holographic range-Doppler signal processor with a code-name"HORUS". The HORUS processor can take element signals from a large linear phased array to produce simultaneous range-Doppler maps across many an ...

  9. Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

    SBC: Capco Inc.            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of the proposed STTR is to develop a low-cost, high performance material which is capable of directionally-tailored thermal emission and/or transmission control. By combining advanced electromagnetic band structure engineering techniques with low-cost, self-assembled fabrication methods, highly tunable, narrow-band emissivity control can be achieved over the entire ...

  10. Agile beam/wavefront control for sub-aperture-based imaging systems

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT35

    ABSTRACT: Boulder Nonlinear Systems recently developed and delivered a beam scanner that non-mechanically steers a monochromatic, 5-cm beam over an 80a x 80a field of regard (FOR) with sub-milliradian resolution. This prototype uses a transmissive, wide-angle stepper (coarse steering unit), which is very compact and easily inserts into conformal, sub-aperture assemblies. To provide high resolut ...
