  1. GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112065

    ABSTRACT:Ionospheric scintillation and TEC are required by the IORD. We propose a GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA) that makes measurements of Ionospheric scintillation and TEC. GAMMA will be remotely deployable, such as on an ocean buoy or in a battlefield. It will send data to the user via the Iridium satellite network in near real-time. GAMMA will make use of ASTRAs existing Connected Autono ...

  2. High-Speed Weapon Radomes

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF121092

    ABSTRACT:As more and more advanced hypersonic weapons are developed, vehicle temperatures are expected to near 1250K (977C); as flight times increase, these temperatures are expected to saturate the entire vehicle.Typically, forward-looking RF and IR sensors are collocated in the same protective radome, which degrades the performance of both systems.FIRST RF proposes a significantly different appr ...

  4. GridCloud: A Secure Processing and Data Management Solution Using.Crunch V3

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF121040

    ABSTRACT:The Joint Environment Toolkit (JET) Increment 2 architecture consists of servers at six globally distributed Operational Weather Squadrons (OWS).Each server must handle peak demand of weather analysis and forecast information from 30-40 Weather Flights (WFs, which provide tactical weather information to pilots) in addition to 1,000 or more other operational users within their area of resp ...

  5. Sensor Data Fusion for Intelligent Systems Monitoring and Decision Making

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF103255

    ABSTRACT: The current AF aircraft maintenance system has a high operational cost of unplanned, premature, and missed maintenance. The"red"operational anomaly detection thresholds are not adaptive to individual aircraft history nor to changes in operations causing"ringers"and missed detections. Abnormal correlations in aircraft health sensor data that can be precursors to catastrophic failures ar ...

  6. Mode Adapting Etched Air Taper Fiber Optic Pump Combiner

    SBC: OPTICAL ENGINES, INC            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: The semiconductor pumped fiber laser has generated considerable interest for High Energy Lasers (HELs) in a number of BMDS applications including long range sensing, communications and missile defense. The potential efficiency, compact size and low weight, reliability and ruggedness are attractive for these and other directed energy applications. A key requirement is the creation and ...

  7. GPS-denied Positioning using Networked communications

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: AF131063

    ABSTRACT: A robust back-up navigation alternative is needed to continue to provide accurate PVT data when GPS is denied. Navigation solutions can be enhanced by utilizing existing networked communications for dismounted forces operating in small platoons. When some of the forces lose their GPS signals, traditional GPS-denied network positioning techniques such as Time of Arrival (TOA) or Time D ...

  8. Cooperative Networked GPS signal acquisition

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: AF131062

    ABSTRACT: The biggest demand on a military receiver has been from the time required to search and acquire for the military signals when an accurate internal time reference is not available. Prior research by NAVSYS into network assisted GPS approaches used the JTRS network itself to transfer time from another GPS receiver to reduce the initial time uncertainty and speed the acquisition time. This ...

  9. Ka-band Satellite Phased Array Antenna

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF131079

    ABSTRACT:Future SATCOM payload antennas need to provide much greater spot beam control flexibility. Currently deployed systems utilize phased array fed dishes limiting the number of spot beams and gain since earth coverage is accomplished by limiting the number of beamwidths scanned. The solution proposed is a direct illumination phased array that is scaleable for very high gain. Greater than 30 s ...

  10. Multi-GHz Bandwidth Radiation Hardened 32nm SOI Delta Sigma Modulation ADC/DACfor E-Band Satellite Communications

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: AF141192

    ABSTRACT:The E-Band frequency bands from 71 to 76 GHz and 81 to 86 GHz have been designated for satellite down- and uplinks, and have gained an increased interest. The wide bandwidth in excess of 1GHz allows the use of low order modulation schemes and simple receiver implementation. In other words, coarser Analog to Digital converters (ADC) and Digital to Analog (DAC) converters can be used in the ...
