  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 ...

  5. Electroplated Alloys for Replacement of Hard Chrome on Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Electrolytic Hard Chrome (ECH) is the standard coating method for 4XXX steels used in actuators and depot-based repair of damaged items. The properties of EHC coatings are excellent, and as a result EHC coatings have been used for more than 50 years. Unfortunately, EHC plating uses hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) that is regulated by both OSHA and the EPA. Health and environmental concern ...

  6. Epitaxial Technologies for SiGeSn High Performance Optoelectronic Devices

    SBC: ARKTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF141002

    ABSTRACT: Silicon-based lasers/detectors have long been desired for owing to the possibility of monolithic integration of photonics with high-speed Si electronics and the aspiration of broadening the reach of Si technology by expanding its functionalities well beyond electronics. The goal of this project is to first develop high quality SiGeSn material and then use it to demonstrate prototype opt ...

  7. Robust, automatic design of highly efficient, variable precision filters

    SBC: The Numericus Group, LLC.            Topic: AF141003

    ABSTRACT: The Numericus Group, LLC (TNG) is proposing a paradigm shift for digital filter design, opening a number of technological opportunities that TNG is uniquely qualified to pursue. At the heart of this new paradigm are algorithms that are guaranteed to converge and do not require an expert to oversee their operation, unlike many existing algorithms commonly used today. The new approac ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
