  1. Ephemeral Security Overlay for GPS

    SBC: Integrated Solutions For Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF151078

    ABSTRACT: In this work, an ephemeral security technique for keying military GPS receivers will be developed. This work will not modify the existing GPS cryptographic structure, but rather develop an overlay for providing keying information to a receiver in a manner that makes all security information ephemeral, eliminating the permanent storage of CPI within the receiver. Existing and emerging bat ...

  2. A Real-time Analysis Tool based on Surrogate Models for Accurate Prediction of Combined Flight External Loads

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141226

    The goal of the proposed effort is to develop and demonstrate an integrated software tool based on surrogate models for real-time analysis and prediction of combined static and dynamic external loads using non-proprietary physics-based models and existing flight-test data. In Phase I key technology elements were developed and proof-of-principle was successfully demonstrated. Load analysis software ...

  3. Improved MWIR LED Arrays on GaAs and Si Substrates for Scene Projectors


    The state-of-the-art in infrared scene projection uses micro-machined resistor arrays. While a proven technology, these arrays are limited in frame-rate and dynamic range, and can be prohibitively costly as array size increases. Alternative technologies ...

  4. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications


    LWIR is well suited for free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, precipitation, and fog. Due to recent developments of QCLs, the technology is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system. However, a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors for the high-speed receiver is needed. The specifics of the LWIR ...

  5. Automated Scaling Software for Oblique Incidence Ionograms

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151098

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this solicitation is to develop real-time automatic scaling software for oblique ionograms (OIs).In Phase I, using recently developed mathematical concepts of sparsity and fractional norms, we have developed a novel method for detecting the desired trace data and determining whether a given point is an ordinary magnetoionic mode (O) or an extraordinary mode (X) while red ...

  6. Lightweight, Compact, Small-Engine Startup and Operation for Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS)

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF161098

    ABSTRACT: Systima Technologies, Inc. has developed a concept to provide reliable cold-start capabilities of small internal combustion (IC) engines for application in small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS).Systimas approach for small engine start and operation will overcome the reliability issues pertaining to cold-engine start and operation throughout a wide range of environmental conditions includi ...

  7. Global-Local Modeling of Aircraft Occupant Safety Assessment during Ejection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF161044

    ABSTRACT: The extreme ejection conditions in the fifth-generation fighter F-35 could lead to occupant injury. Rocket sled testing of ejection seat with manikins is limited in simulating human response. The current neck injury models and injury criteria from automotive safety are inadequate for the ejection-related injury. We propose to develop the global-to-local finite element models (FEM) and si ...

  8. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors


    Infrared devices fabricated using III-V strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials have many advantages over present state-of-the-art HgCdTe detectors, e.g., cost, manufacturability, operability, and theoretically lower Auger generation rates. However, due to the presence of inherent growth related defects the SLS materials have not achieved full potential. While growth improvements are anticipat ...

  9. Influence of Long-range Ionospheric and Atmospheric Effects on Surveillance and Communication Systems

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151154

    Abstract: Electromagnetic signals used in communications and sensor systems can be seriously impacted after propagation through a region of the atmosphere or ionosphere disturbed by turbulence.This work will develop new physics-based technology that calculates EM propagation from HF to laser frequencies, including the effects of turbulence with long correlation length in the direction of propagati ...

  10. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...
