  1. ADAPT-MP: Auto-Diagnostic Adaptive Precision Trainer for Myoelectric Prosthesis users

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: DHP14011

    More than 1,500 Americans have lost a limb due to traumatic injury in combat in recent years.Upper limb loss can be treated with myoelectric prostheses, but such devices require intensive training to effectively operate. The need to concentrate and continuously react during training often takes amputees many months, with the result that many patients abandon use of the prosthesis. In the Phase I e ...

  2. MWIR Seeker-Sensor for Strap Down Weapon/SUAS applications

    SBC: SURFACE OPTICS CORP.            Topic: AF141139

    ABSTRACT:A program to develop a compact, HOT-FPA-based MWIR imager for small UAS sensor and strap-down seeker applications is proposed. The proposed system builds upon Surface Optics real-time broad-band and spectral imaging activities to generate a compact sensor appropriate for both ground and airborne operations that includes real-time detection and tracking of targets. Integrated into the proc ...

  3. HBOTM Air-to-Ground Laser Link

    SBC: IJK CONTROLS, LLC            Topic: AF141037

    ABSTRACT:A program to build, test, and demonstrate an air-to-ground free-space optical communications (FSOC) system is proposed. The program is targeted toward the need to transmit surveillance and other data from tactical airborne platforms to the ground. Current data capabilities in this area are limited by either satcom availability/expense or by TCDL data rates and bandwidth allocation issues. ...

  4. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT:In this phase II effort we will commercialize the high speed, high power, modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes (PDs). To this end, we will develop reliable packaging solutions for discrete PDs, PD arrays, balanced PDs and waveguide based PDs. We will also transition the chip fabrication process for continuous, high volume supply of quality MUTC PD chips. In the first six mont ...

  6. Directed Energy Wind Tunnel Test Methodology

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT:MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes advancement of aero-optical isolation hardware, data processing, and optical modeling for upgrade of AEDCs 16T wind tunnel. We will conduct testing at AEDC during Year 1 with mechanical diagnostics and an upgraded optical sensor with small-aperture access to the test section from outside the 16T pressure vessel. We will also design ...

  8. Physics-based, Fast-Running Tool for Fuel Spurt Modeling from HRAM

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141224

    ABSTRACT: In Phase I, CFDRC in partnership with ESI, have developed and validated a physics-based CFD tool to quantify fuel spurt caused by impact and penetration of fuel tanks. CFD tool development, qualification and validation study showed good correlations with experiments in terms of fundamental physics including: a) droplet formation, breakup, size, timing and distribution; b) cavitation zone ...

  9. EDA for Strategic Radiation Hardened Precision Analog IC Obsolescence Mitigation

    SBC: MILANOWSKI & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF131057

    ABSTRACT:The problem being addressed in the M&A, Inc. ANDROMEDA program is obsolescence of strategic hardened analog integrated circuits (ICs). Most of the suppliers of analog ICs for strategic hardened systems are no longer supporting the parts and processes developed for those programs. Virtually all U.S. strategic assets are faced with such electronics obsolescence problems. Our approach to sol ...

  10. Hot Surface Ignition Apparatus for Aviation Fuels

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF141222

    ABSTRACT: ASTM standards exist currently to characterize various combustion characteristics of flammable chemicals such as flammability limits, flash point, minimum ignition energy, and auto ignition temperature. There are no such well-accepted characterization protocols for hot surface ignition temperature measurements. This is partly due to a large variation in the (i) test setups used in the li ...
