  1. SAGES II: System Acquisition Guidance from Expert Systems

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF112019

    ABSTRACT:The high costs and inherent dangers of live training with air platforms have motivated the increasing use of simulation-based training. However, selecting a system to effectively meet training objectives can be challenging, particularly one that must blend multiple disparate technologies. Among these challenges is the need to acquire visual display systems that optimally support training ...

  2. Miniature High-Altitude Precision Navigation Alternative

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF121091

    ABSTRACT:Todays advanced precision guided weapons rely on GPS/INS-based solutions to provide accurate navigation data, enabling the munition to adjust its path to reach the target.While this approach is effective when GPS is available, new approaches are needed that can achieve accurate navigation when operating in a GPS-denied environment.In response, vendors are developing new navigation-aiding ...

  3. Group 4-5 UAS integration of terminal area sensors & operations in the terminal area for Airborne Sense and Avoid

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF131131

    ABSTRACT:Integration of track data from Ground Based Sense and Avoid (GBSAA) and Airborne Sense and Avoid (ABSAA) systems offer the possibility of significantly improved terminal airspace tracks because they often have complementary sensing geometries and measurement error statistics.Under Phase 1, Systems & Technology Research (STR) demonstrated a multi-hypothesis tracking and fusion capability t ...

  4. SMART Bandage for Monitoring Wound Perfusion

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141005

    ABSTRACT: Continuous supply of oxygen to the tissue is essential for wound healing and resistance to infection. Oxygen provides the additional energy source for the repairing process. In the early stage of wound repair, fibroblasts start to migrate, divide, and produce collagen. To promote fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis, oxygen must be present in sufficient quantities. Angiogenes ...

  5. Enhanced Fuel Cells From Wastewater Treatment (Bacteria Generated System) as a Renewable Energy Source

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: AF141211

    ABSTRACT: Microbial fuel cells (MFC's) use metabolic reactions inside bacteria as a source of electrons. Wastewater treatment processes with MFC's employ bacteria to generate electrical power produced as they breakdown organic materials captured from wastewater. FTL Labs Corporation (FTL) proposes a powerful new enabling technology for wastewater power generation using high-capacity flo ...

  6. Real-Time Safety-Assured Autonomous Aircraft


    ABSTRACT: Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, proposes the development of the Real-Time Safety-Assured Autonomous Aircraft (RTS3A) system. The system dynamically performs decision-making based on both sensed and predictive information to carry out adaptive missions and maintenance. This system leverages sensing capabilities distributed throughout subsyst ...

  7. Just In Time (JIT) Aircraft Maintenance System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF121225

    ABSTRACT:The High Velocity Maintenance (HVM) initiative strives to reduce aircraft downtime while maintaining the most capable air fleet that achieves Air Force mission requirements.Unscheduled maintenance, due to issues uncovered midway into the maintenance work, introduces the most delays that negatively impact HVM turnaround time.To increase the predictability of the actual maintenance required ...

  8. Lightweight AEHF Modem for Manpack Terminals

    SBC: ORB Analytics            Topic: AF131138

    ABSTRACT:The Protected Tactical Waveform (PTW) promises low-cost communications for dismounted forces who have a critical need for secure, anti-jam (AJ), and low-probability-of-intercept (LPI) satellite communications (SATCOM).To allow dismounted forces to leverage the benefit of PTW requires very low size, weight, and power (SWaP) PTW modems capable of operating at up to 256 kbps.Unfortunately, c ...

  9. System for Measuring and Reporting Aircraft Ullage Oxygen

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF131164

    ABSTRACT:Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with F-35 Prime Contractor Lockheed Martin Aerospace Corp. (LM Aero), proposes to build, develop, test, and evaluate a sensor system for measuring and reporting in real-time the oxygen concentration in the fuel tank ullage of advanced tactical aircraft such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Previously, PSI developed, and advanced to TRL 5, an ...

  10. Ground Based Sensor for measurement of V and W band satellite link propagation channel

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: AF131045

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II SBIR proposal describes our effort to develop a combined radiometer and radar sensor to estimate total atmospheric path loss for potential satellite links at V-band and W-band (71-86 GHz). Termed WAXRR, for W-band and X-band Radar Radiometer, this system will be used to generate statistics of total atmospheric loss with a dynamic range exceeding 20 dB. The radiometer sect ...
