  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. Heterojunction GeSn based Photonic Devices

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: AF141002

    ABSTRACT: Si photonic devices based on GeSn materials will be very important for the MWIR. The Air Force recognizes the need for next-generation high-performance photonic materials in the SWIR to MWIR infrared spectrum, due in part to the atmospheric high transmissive windows in this wavelength ranges. Due to materials limitations, silicon based photonic devices have not been utilized in this wa ...

  5. Validation Device for Cold Expanded Holes

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: AF141207

    ABSTRACT: Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a portable, cost effective, near-surface residual stress measuring tools based on electromagnetic principles. Resodyn Corporation has patented technology developed for validating cold expanded button head rivet holes.The first application in Phase I is to apply this technology to countersunk cold expanded rivet holes in 7075 aluminum. In Phase I ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Failure Avoidance in Microelectronics Due to Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) Mismatch of Substrates and Adhesives

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA14T002

    The reliability of electronic packages is of paramount concern in todays electronics industry, and ensuring their thermomechanical integrity is necessary to achieve this reliability. However, this task has become more challenging with miniaturization and the introduction of new materials. Thermal stresses in electronic packages continue to be one of the leading causes of device failure. The pro ...

  10. Autonomic Monitoring, Analysis, and Protection (AMAP) System

    SBC: AVIRTEK, INC.            Topic: AF151031

    ABSTRACT:Current analysis, detection and protection systems are mainly static and manually intensive. At the same time, the complexity of networked computing systems, their dynamic behavior, and the availability of many heterogeneous devices that are static and mobile make these tools incapable to accurately characterize current states, detect malicious attacks, and stop them or their fast propaga ...
