  1. Laser/Microwave Energy Deposition to Improve Control/Performance of High Speed Vehicles

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF103009

    ABSTRACT:In this effort, we will couple the energy of focused microwave bursts into the air and onto surfaces by first forming a laser plasma. The presence of the laser plasma allows much lower microwave intensities to couple their energy to the laser-pre-ionized surface or air- volume, allowing more efficient energy-transfer and the use of lower-power microwave systems to achieve the desired effe ...

  2. Implementing the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm for Imaging in Daylight and Strong Turbulence

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF103017

    ABSTRACT:A new algorithm, the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm (DORA), has been developed. DORA includes a novel implementation of the multi-frame blind deconvolution image restoration concept which recovers high-quality object estimates from sequences of degraded images. DORA removes the effects of atmospheric aberration in images recorded at ground-based telescopes, and is designed to opera ...

  3. Holographic Video Display Using Novel Guided-wave Scanning System

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF131023

    ABSTRACT:Todays analysts need improved 3D visualization tools to assist in critical situations such as deconfliction, line-of-sight analysis, air space and satellite control.Currently available 3D displays cannot provide the level of detail and comfort needed because the displays contain unacceptable visual artifacts, do not provide full parallax, require special headgear, and induce nausea in man ...

  4. Improved TPS for Analog and Mixed-Signal Bad-Actor SRUs

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093207

    ABSTRACT: The proposed program addresses the cost effectiveness of maintenance operations for mission-critical electronic warfare circuit card assemblies (CCAs), by reducing no fault found (NFF) codes and accelerating accurate diagnosis of root causes in support of repairs of analog, digital, radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal CCAs. Benefits of the proposed work include a projected 50% reducti ...

  5. Improved Test Program Sets for Bad-Actor Circuit Card Assemblies in VDATS

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093208

    ABSTRACT: Ridgetop Group, Inc. will develop an innovative solution to isolate troublesome no-fault-found (NFF) occurrences in the maintenance depot. We will develop advanced technology to integrate into improved Test Program Sets (TPSs) used to test complex circuit card assemblies (CCAs) of line-replaceable units (LRUs) in electronic warfare (EW) systems. The work will result in a 60% reduction ...

  6. Optical System for Precision Atomic Clocks and Stable Oscillators

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141126

    ABSTRACT:Ultra-stable and accurate frequency and timing devices such as atomic clocks are essential for modern communication, navigation, surveillance, and missile guidance systems. There are many atomic oscillators such as neutral calcium and neutral ytterbium that produce clock signal in optical domain. However, these optical standards are expensive and not widely available. The phase stabilized ...

  7. All non-personal engineering services, material, equipment, etc. needed for Expert Troubleshooting and Repair System associated with Commercial Readin

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093208

    ABSTRACT:The ETRS technology developed under the Phase II SBIR program exploits Lean Depot Management System (LDMS) historical data and CCA analysis to enhance the effrciency and effrcacy of the Versatile Depot Automatic Test System (VDATS). Prioritized diagnostic and repair actions achieve cost-avoidance through reduced mean time to repair (MTTR), reduced frequency of no fault found (NFF) cod ...

  8. High Efficiency Flight Line Cooling & Power System

    SBC: ENERGY QUEST TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF112219

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this program is to design and produce a commercial-like ground support aircraft cooling and 400 Hz power system that is made from predominantly commercial sub-systems, such as a commercially available (COTS) generator, engines, air conditioning components, blower, and trailer. The system would incorporate novel recirculation of the evaporator condensate to pre-cool the a ...

  9. Stick-to-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation for Predicting Fatigue Life and Scheduling Inspections of Aircraft

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF141066

    ABSTRACT:Both commercial and military aircraft are being flown/utilized for extended operational time; a more accurate prediction of residual life and the inspection interval for an individual aircraft is required, as these aging aircraft are kept in operational status. A technique for converting actual aircraft measured flight usage data into accurate calculated stresses/strains on the structural ...

  10. Tomographic Coherent Ladar Based Atmospheric Turbulence Profile Characterization System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141195

    ABSTRACT:Under this Phase II SBIR contract, Bridger Photonics and Montana State University-Spectrum Lab will design, build and deliver both a statistical scintillation tomographic system and a coherent tomographic wavefront sensor (CTWS). Both proposed systems meet the long term Air Force needs with respect to the full characterization of atmospheric turbulence along horizontal or slant paths. The ...
