  1. Flight Control Technology for Tightly Controlled Hard Target Impact

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF081047

    This project develops an innovative, enabling technology for precision attitude control of Penetrating Munitions.  An imaging sensor system is used to precisely measure airframe attitude relative to the velocity vector.  The measurement is used by the autopilot to accurately align the airframe with its velocity during the impact phase of flight.  This eliminates tail slap and promotes deeper pe ...

  4. Aerothermoelastic Simulation

    SBC: Cmsoft, Inc.            Topic: AF073145

    Testing and clearing hypersonic systems is a challenging task. When anything unexpected occurs, the time to react is so short that the tested article must be destroyed. Because ground-based experimental facilities such as shock tunnels and arc-jets are typically unable to reproduce the flight conditions experienced by these systems, a fast multidisciplinary computational technology is required for ...

  5. Reliable MEMS Ka-Band Filters

    SBC: Innovative Micro Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB072026

    Novel design for MEMS RF varactor developed in Phase I is to be used in the design of a tunable filter for the diplexer module of a Communications Data Link (CDL). Presently, the diplexer function is handled by filter banks which are selected based on whether the unit is functioning in transmission or reception mode. The MEMS devices set and select the filter attributes for the diplexer, so that ...

  6. Detection of Infrared Radiation using Semiconductor Nanostructures

    SBC: QUSEMDE (FORMERLY MESO.D)            Topic: SB072034

    The goal of this investigation is demonstration of a new class of extremely sensitive detectors of infraRed (IR) radiation. As is well known, conventional detector materials are near the limit of sensitivity and hence spectacular improvements are not expected. In the last few years there have been tremendous advances in the fabrication of silicon nanostructures and arrays of carbon nanotubes. ...

  7. Micro-Actuated Optics for Wide Field-of-View (FOV) Imaging with Random-Access Optical Zoom Capability

    SBC: HOLOCHIP CORPORATION            Topic: SB072025

    Presently, scanning and zooming of imaging optics is achieved with bulky mechanical gimbals or using multiple focal plane arrays and associated optics to cover the wide field of view. These approaches are not only expensive in terms of power, size and weight, but also costly. Alternatively, the use of liquid crystal (LC) lenses, LC spatial light modulators and LC scanners in zooming and scanning s ...

  8. High Fidelity Virtual Reality Driving Rehabilitation After Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: MBFARR LLC            Topic: SB072011

    Development proposal of a concept prototype for a NEW type of high fidelity virtual reality driving rehabilitation trainer is proposed for brain injured military personnel. The TBI Model T3 rehabilitation trainer will teach a graduated difficulty lesson plan of operational, tactical and strategic driving skills wrapped in a NASCAR race simulation to maximize training motivation and trainee attent ...

  9. Open Source Information Geospatial Overlay (OSIGO)

    SBC: Geosemble Technologies            Topic: ST071005

    The objective of this project is to develop a capability to automatically link news articles to satellite imagery and then to display summaries of the linked articles. In Phase I of this effort, we developed an initial approach to automatically link news articles to geographic locations and then cluster and summarize the linked articles. In our experimental evaluation, we showed that articles cou ...

  10. Ultra-Fast 3 Terminal VCSEL (U-VCSEL)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: ST071008

    In this Phase II STTR proposal, Ziva in collaboration with subcontractor University California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) proposes to fabricate and demonstrate high speed, direct modulated U-VCSELs with the goal to achieve high frequency (f3dB > 80 GHz) modulation capability with moderate (< 0.5 mW) optical output power. Modeling and simulation of the devices will provide in-depth understanding of devi ...
