  1. Radiation Hard Electronics for Advanced Communication Systems

    SBC: ICS LLC            Topic: O102

    Advanced reconfigurable/reprogrammable communication systems will require use of commercial sub 100 nm electronics. Legacy radiation tolerant circuits fail to provide Single Event Upset (SEU) immunity at speeds greater than 500 MHz. New base level logic circuits are needed to provide SEU immunity for high speed circuits afforded by sub 100 nm technology. A completely new circuit and system appr ...

  2. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  3. Modeling to Quantify Improved Durability of Superfinish Gear Processing

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N11AT007

    Under this STTR, Sentient Corporation, along with the Ohio State University GearLab as a research partner, will develop a probabilistic physics-based damage modeling tool for the simulation of superfinished gear components. This model will consider critical surface, material, and load parameters for components manufactured from common gear steels. The model will also analyze superfinished as well ...

  4. Ultra Low Power, Radiation Hardened, Reconfigurable Analog-to-Digital Converter

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: MDA10032

    The goal of this project is to develop an ultra low power (ULP), radiation hardened, reconfigurable analog-to-digital converter (ADC) in the 130nm Flexfet Independently Double Gated SOI CMOS process. Satellites include a large number of sensors which perform both generic system functions and specific mission needs. For these various sensors, the required resolution for the associated ADC may be ...

  5. High Performance, Ultra Low Power SPA-1 ASIC for Space Plug-and-Play Avionics

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    ABSTRACT: The Space Plug-and-play Avionics (SPA) initiative is designed to improve the ability of the US military to respond to rapidly changing operational needs by creating, integrating, and launching a new spacecraft in less than one week. This would provide major benefits to war fighters on the ground, in the sky, and at sea. SPA-1 ASICs using I2C as the transport interface will likely be t ...

  6. Spline Health Prognosis via Physics Based Modeling Coupled with Component Level Tests

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N093170

    Sentient will develop enhanced fretting fatigue analysis software with rigorous consideration of surface roughness effects in the stick/slip phenomena and fatigue. This will be coupled with an analysis of the stresses and resulting degradation in the material. Sentient will utilize diagnostic data in the form of acoustic emission and/or measured shaft torque to determine the loading conditions and ...

  7. Prognostic&Health Management (PHM) Technologies for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)Optimized PHM System for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N101006

    Sentient will develop a unique and innovative prognostics and health management architecture, called SAGEmaintainer for Navy unmanned aerial system (UAS). SAGEmaintainer is a three part solution for PHM on unmanned systems. First is the PHM open architecture system does not rely on pilot feedback, but instead on accurate models for health prediction. Next the SAGEmaintainer Design provides standar ...

  8. Hyper-Elevation Modeling of Terrain, Topography, and Urban Environments

    SBC: Cognitics, Inc.            Topic: N091026

    Recent advances in technology have exposed enough computing power in easily available hardware that geometry synthesis algorithms that we were previously prohibitively compute-intensive are now a possibility. There is significant untapped potential in this area that so far has gone underutilized in existing simulations. Increasing the realism and accuracy of synthetic environments has become a pri ...
