  1. Hostile Fire Indicator for Remotely Piloted Aircraft


    ABSTRACT:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the development and demonstration of a wide area (WA) multi-threat hostile fire indication (HFI) system for remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA).The HFI system consists of a comparatively wide field of view sensor that employs miniature optics and a custom short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera based on a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS ...

  2. GMTI Data Exploitation For SWAP Limited Radar Systems


    ABSTRACT:Size, weight, and power (SWaP) limitations restrict the ability of airborne radar systems to detect low-observable moving targets such as dismounts and slow vehicles in strong clutter.Solid State Scientific Corporation has developed a unique ground moving target indication signal processing algorithm which is ideal for SWaP limited systems due to its computational efficiency and its sensi ...

  3. Active, frequency-selective meta-surfaces for reduced antenna footprint and jamming mitigation


    ABSTRACT: Significant cost reductions and system improvements would ensue if multiple transmit and receive antennas could share one RF aperture without performance degradation due to self-interference phenomenon. Effects of radar jamming signals would be also be reduced through the use of a properly designed reflector capable of only reflecting the RF radiation of interest. To enable such improv ...

  4. Imaging Techniques for Passive Atmospheric Turbulence Compensation


    ABSTRACT:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose a Phase II SBIR program to develop a unique technique for imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The proposed idea combines the use of specially designed hardware and associated algorithms to yield improved performance over current systems. The proposed solution will improve upon one of the traditional techniques for imaging ...

  5. Anatomic Phantom for Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Studies

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151026

    ABSTRACT:Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can potentially provide a safe, non-invasive, and painless method for enhancing cognition, vigilance, and learning rate. However, further research is required to evaluate, demonstrate, and understand its efficacy in a controlled and reproducible manner. Hypothesis-driven studies of tDCS require targeted delivery of electrical currents to spec ...

  6. Automated Airfoil Inspection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151054

    ABSTRACT:Inspection of inserted compressor blades is difficult due to the complicated geometry of the blades, the need for high accuracy, and the safety risk posed by undetected cracks. At present, the time and cost associated with airfoil inspection forces many parts to be condemned and replaced after limited service. Creare proposes to develop an Automated Airfoil Inspection System (AAIS) that p ...

  7. Air-Assist Atomizers for Fuel-Flexible Gas Turbine Combustors and Augmentors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151061

    ABSTRACT:Jet-in-crossflow fuel injectors are commonly used to fuel gas turbine main combustors and augmentors. The performance of this type of atomizer is sensitive to the engine operating condition, so that fuel placement can vary over the flight envelope. This can lead to suboptimal fueling and combustion stability issues. Similarly, changes in fuel physical properties impact jet penetration and ...

  8. A Modular Power Converter for Austere Space Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151084

    ABSTRACT:Spacecraft power management relies upon DC-DC converters to provide multiple voltages from the storage battery. Currently available converters have shortcomings in areas of power density, tolerance to radiation and wide operating temperatures, and excessive development cost. We propose to develop a high specific power converter that is compatible with spacecraft operational environments a ...

  9. Automated OML Defect Detection and Localization

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151125

    ABSTRACT:Visual inspection of the outer mold line of aircraft for defects in low-observable coatings is time-consuming and prone to human error. Creare proposes to develop an automated outer mold line inspection system that provides fast, highly accurate and cost effective detection and localization of defects. Our system will provide significant gains in efficiency and sensitivity of defect detec ...

  10. Self-Powered Temperature Sensors for Hypersonic Vehicle Safety Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151190

    ABSTRACT:Electronic safety and arming devices (ESADs) are critical for safe operation of missiles and bombs. These devices use environmental sensors to ensure that warheads are not armed until after the vehicle is launched and has reached a safe flight condition. Existing vehicles use intrusive airspeed sensors (turbines, Pitot tubes) that are not suitable for proposed high-speed missiles due to d ...
