  1. Holographic Radar Signal Processing

    SBC: Chiaro Technologies LLC            Topic: AF10BT29

    ABSTRACT: Chiaro Technologies and the University of Colorado will prove the feasibility and investigate the capabilites, limitations, and extensions of the HOlographic Range-doppler processor for Ubiquitous radar Systems (HORUS) in this Phase II STTR. HORUS encodes the signals from a 1-dimensional RF antenna array onto the broad optical bandwidth of a femtosecond comb laser as pulse compre ...

  4. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) offers superior properties for structural applications. Existing UHPC design and production methods employ special materials and mixers. This project is developing mix design and fabrication methods for reliable production of UHPC with local materials and facilities. The Phase I project devised material selection criteria, proportioning methods and mixing pro ...

  6. Quantum Dot Nanocomposite Based Novel Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT26

    ABSTRACT: Energy harvesting has emerged as a critical need for many current and future Air Force missions to enable their long endurance requirements. Traditional approaches have focused on harvesting solar and vibration (i.e., via the use of piezoelectric materials) energy. More recently, substantial interest has developed in harvesting energy derived from thermal gradients (e.g., due to solar r ...

  7. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: We will design, fabricate and test a quantum processing unit (QPU) based on a symmetric ion trap chip. The trap will provide trapping depth similar to that obtain with macrosize Paul traps. In addition to the ion trap, this chip will incorporate integrated optical systems which will deliver the light fields required by the elementary quantum processing unit (or quantum sensing unit). ...
