  1. Liquid Desiccant System for Combined Humidity and Chloride Control

    SBC: AIL Research, Inc            Topic: AF131203

    ABSTRACT: As stated in the solicitation, the Air Force spends $4.5 billion annually on aircraft maintenance related to corrosion. A significant fraction of this expenditure could be saved by a Corrosion Mitigation System (CMS) that both limited a shelter's indoor relative humidity to less than 50% while capturing airborne chloride particles. However, these functions, particularly humidity c ...

  2. Robust Phase Modulators and Polarization Controllers for High Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Fontus Applied Technologies            Topic: MDA14017

    Both polarization controllers and phase modulators are widely used in telecommunications and other applications. Presently, most polarization controllers and phase modulators cannot handle high optical power up to 10 W/channel. In this SBIR program, researchers of Fontus Applied Technologies propose an innovative polarization controller and a phase modulator using our advanced electro-optic tech ...

  3. Micro Electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS) Safe & Arm for Rocket Motor Ignition

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems            Topic: MDA14022

    Ignition of rocket motors can be performed using low-volt firing components, but MIL-STD-1901A requires mechanical isolation for safety. While traditional safe & arm devices are available, they are relatively large and heavy. Recent progress in MEMS has developed miniature safe & arm devices for low-cost munitions such as 40MM grenade and airburst munitions. The Black Hills Nanosystems team has ...

  4. Cyber Hardening and Agility Technologies for Tactical IP Networks (CHATTIN)

    SBC: GRIER FORENSICS, LLC            Topic: AF151030

    ABSTRACT:To meet the Air Force's need for cyber defense and hardening of tactical IP networks, we propose developing Cyber Hardening and Agility Technologies for Tactical IP Networks (CHATTIN). CHATTIN will harden existing tactical networks by injecting an authentication mechanism, automatically detect and block attacks and reconnaissance attempts, and provide agile isolation of adversarial nodes. ...

  5. Advanced Component Cooling Design and Evaluation for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151059

    ABSTRACT:Significant gains to engine performance are achievable through the development of advanced cooling designs in blade and vane airfoils in order to allow higher turbine inlet temperatures. Correspondingly, reductions in maintenance costs can be achieved through higher confidence evaluation criteria for such cooling designs. In this effort, scaling parameters used between experimental and en ...

  6. Reconfigurable RF Front-end for Multi-GNSS/Communication SDR Receiver

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF151077

    ABSTRACT:Global Positioning System (GPS) capabilities have become common place technology with commercial and DoD applications with several countries developing their own standard Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). To provide service to multiple satellite bands, a reconfigurable radio front-end that can support all possible GNSS/communication bands with simultaneous reception is needed. M ...

  7. Ka-Band and Q-Band Low Noise Amplifiers

    SBC: Princeton Microwave Technology Inc            Topic: AF151149

    ABSTRACT:Low Noise Amplifiers covering the 27.5-31.0 GHz and 43.5-47.0 GHz bands with ultra-low noise figures of less than 0.6 and 0.9 dB at the MMIC level, and 0.8 and 1.1 dB at the modules waveguide flange level, respectively, are proposed. This represents a reduction of nominally 0.5 to 1.0 dB over newly announced MMICs, and 1 to 2 dB reduction relative to commercial LNAs. WGS and AEHF satellit ...

  8. Ka-Band Efficient, Linear Power Amplifiers for SATCOM Ground Terminals

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF151150

    ABSTRACT:The Ka-band SATCOM systems offer potential for transportable and mobile communications through the effective use of the wide bandwidths available while requiring that adequate linearity performance be maintained. In environments where size and power conservation is of high importance, power consumption and heat dissipation in the power amplifier (PA) must be minimized. However, it is wide ...

  9. Diffractive Optical Elements for Efficient Laser Cavities

    SBC: DHPC TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF151155

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this proposal is to develop and demonstrate an innovative laser cavity design based on high efficiency diffractive optical elements (DOEs) to replace currently used external bulk laser optics. This innovation will improve the stability of Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VECSEL) systems as well as other types of solid state laser systems. The developed DOE ...

  10. Exploitation Algorithms in the Compressive Sensing (Sparse Measurement) Space

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, the MaXentric team outlines its strategy for creating a Radar-based Compressive Sensing and Target Classification system, code-named Rad-CSC. In this Phase I, the team will implement and optimize compressive sensing and classification algorithms for use with conventional and synthetic aperture radar data. Data will be chosen from publicly available datasets, such as the ...
