  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. Multi-Frame Blind Deconvolution Algorithms for Daylight and Strong Turbulence Imaging

    SBC: Pacific Defense Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF103017

    National intelligence requirements for Space Situational Awareness (SSA) are hindered by the lack of a reliable capability to image satellites during the daytime hours with optical sensors. Presently, most optical SSA observations are conducted during terminator conditions i.e., morning or evening twilight when the sun illuminates the satellite, but not the observatory. There are two fundamental ...

  5. High Density Hydrogen Storage with Nano-Material Hybrids

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF103225

    ABSTRACT: Oceanit proposes to develop a hybrid nanomaterial composite with high hydrogen storage capacity. The nanocomposite material is composed of nanomaterials chemically bonded to support. The unique hierarchical architecture will contribute towards high hydrogen storage capacity. BENEFIT: The successful development of hybrid nanocomposite hydrogen storage technology will enable the wide sc ...

  7. Physics-Based Models for Transient Behavior of Two Phase Flow Cooling Systems

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF112010

    ABSTRACT: Air Force fighter aircraft are equipped with a comprehensive sensor and communications suite that provides situational awareness, command and control and network-centric warfare capabilities. As these technologies advance, the need for avionics cooling capacity increases. Transition to a vapor compression cooling system will help meet the thermal management demands of future aircraft. S ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Advanced Estimation and Data Fusion Strategies for Space Surveillance/Reconnaissance

    SBC: Pacific Defense Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF093012

    ABSTRACT: The accurate tracking of resident space objects (RSO)s depends on the rapid estimation of orbits using the knowledge gained from sparsely sampled observations of satellites under the influence of interacting gravitational, solar radiation pressure and atmospheric drag effects. While there are many established sequential estimators that can perform real-time orbit estimation and provide ...
