  2. A 100 W, V-Band Elliptical Beam Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF141193

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a 100 W TWT for operation in the 71-76 GHz band. The design will be compatible with space qualification for operation in a geostationary earth orbit (GEO) satellite platform. The performance of the TWT will be optimized to support 12/4 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) with 30 dB suppression and no more than 3 dB backoff. We propose to use a rectangular circuit ...

  4. A novel Approach for High Rate Production of IR to IR Up-converting Nano-particles

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: Phosphor materials are currently being utilized in a wide variety of applications. The requirements for phosphors have become more and more stringent with smaller and smaller particles being required. In the Phase I program UES Inc. in collaboration with Penn State University has demonstrated the feasibility of a few approaches for high rate production of high efficiency IR to IR up-con ...

  5. Abrasion Resistant Coating For Composite Substrates

    SBC: NANOSPERSE, LLC            Topic: AF141160

    ABSTRACT: Current composite USAF platforms suffer damage during media blast stripping operations. This is a pervasive issue, with repair being laborious and costly, a material solution is needed to fill in existing damages to the composite skin and provide a protective barrier against future aggregate blasting. NanoSperse proposes to develop a spray-on, flexible, highly erosion resistant polymer ...

  6. Adaptable Toolkit for the Assessment and Augmentation of Performance by Teams in Real Time (ADAPTER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF131031

    ABSTRACT: Full-spectrum cyber operations, including both Cyber Network Attack and Cyber Network Defense, place enormous cognitive demands on operators and teams. When demands are too high or tasks are not properly allocated, performance degrades, and missions may fail. To avoid operator overload, the USAF requires a thorough, real-time evaluation of the state of the individual and the team. Asses ...

  7. Adaptive Antenna Structures

    SBC: Vector ElectroMagnetics LLC            Topic: AF141109

    Vector ElectroMagnetics, LLC and The Ohio State University ElectroScience Laboratory propose to adapt design modifications to existing AFSCN ground site SATCOM antenna systems in order to reduce radio frequency interference (RFI) from various sources in L and S bands. The proposed modifications will reduce side and back lobes in the antenna radiation pattern by at least 10 dB as well as achieve a ...

  8. Adaptive antenna structures

    SBC: BerrieHill Research Corporation            Topic: AF141109

    Unwanted RFI is a growing concern due to the ever expanding RF world around us. Not only are the number of RFI sources increasing, so too is the frequency usage across the RF spectrum. As a result, RF systems like the AFSCN are expected to become more susceptible to disruptions in coverage and service. Additionally, these systems must maintain a small RF footprint and not contribute to the problem ...

  9. Adaptive Projection Screen

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141024

    ABSTRACT: The US Air Force relies on realistic projection display systems to simulate operational environments for training of JTAC personnel. One current limitation is that the projection screen materials are passive and do not allow reflectance to be adjusted for day/night difference or to accommodate night vision. In this SBIR program, Triton working with a leader in the projection training di ...

  10. Additive manufacturing of Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: AF141087

    ABSTRACT: Manufacturing of aerospace components requires high precision, complexity, and the ability to perform in harsh environments, thus resulting in low production rates and compromises of efficient-complex designs. Unfortunately, fabrication materials of liquid rocket engines, such as copper alloys, are not immensely established in additive manufacturing and better approaches are needed to ...
