  1. Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT22

    ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose a Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS) for on-demand turbulence suppression and control of ionospheric RF propagation. The system uses a lightweight, throttleable directional mechanism for controlled production and dispersal of artificial plasma into the space environment. MVICS relies on three innovations: a nove ...

  5. Development of the Hypersonic Environment- Sensor EO/IR Effects Software (HySEES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: Electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are key to the mission success of future hypersonic vehicles. Although EO/IR sensors have been extensively used for subsonic flight regimes, the hypersonic flight regime creates new conditions and complexities with significant impact on optical sensors. These complexities include turbulent, high temperature gas that is in Non-Local Thermodynamic Equ ...

  7. Transparent Non-Cubic Ceramics Using Magnetic Fields to Control Microstructural Orientation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT26

    ABSTRACT: This effort is a close collaboration between RMD and Alfred University. Our goal is to develop a process for producing optical ceramics with properties approaching or exceeding single crystals. Ceramic processing can provide enhanced performance, lower cost, higher yield, relaxed constraints on size and shape, and materials that are difficult or impossible to grow as crystals. We will ...

  8. Enabling Moving Target Hand-off in GPS-Denied Environments

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF15AT34

    ABSTRACT: Future conflicts in contested environments will require coordination between teams of manned and unmanned platforms performing ISR tasks. Coordinating ISR tasks is much more challenging in these contested conditions as GPS cannot be reliably depended upon. Consider the ISR task of handing off a tracked target from one platform to another. Reliably performing this task requires at a mini ...

  9. Electrostatically Flocked Graphite Fiber Interface for Thermally Conductive Structural 2D Laminate Graphite Fiber Reinforced Composites

    SBC: EY TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the EY Technologies proposal is to develop a graphite fiber interface on the surface of a 2D graphite unidirectional tape to enhance the thermally conductive and structural properties on all axis of a composite, with emphasis in enhancing the Z-axis. Currently, industry has not been able to make 2D laminate composite from unidirectional materials that simultaneously ...

  10. Theoretical Models of Quantum Conductance on Graphical Processing Units

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT21

    ABSTRACT: Due to the costs associated with their fabrication, theoretical prediction of conductance in molecular and nano-electronic systems is a cost-effective tool in the design of new devices. Unfortunately, the techniques currently used to treating conductance are computationally expensive, and modeling real systems accurately has been a challenge. We propose to tackle this problem by develop ...
