  1. Quantum Cascade Laser Technology for Gas Diagnostics

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF073134

    ABSTRACT: A versatile and robust system will be developed for accurate measurements of the concentration and temperature of combustion products (e.g., H2O, CO2, CO, and NO). Such diagnostics can provide crucial information for the development and testing of scramjet engines, turbine engines, and standard combustion engines. The system will also be able to provide important characterization of pro ...

  3. Decision Support Technologies for Weapon System Logistics Investment Decisions

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: AF06016

    ABSTRACT:The need for Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) to incorporate changing data sources will require an extension of the current technology to develop model inputs for the LCOM ATK models for each aircraft variant. In addition, the need to model a real world operational environment will also require a flexible and adaptable model building capability. This effort will significantly enhance LCOM ATK f ...

  5. High Fidelity Modeling of Radiation Defects in Large Format focalplanes

    SBC: Lowell, Robert Alan            Topic: AF151173

    ABSTRACT:Validation of Mission capability of LFFPAs in the complex Space radiation environment requires both focused e/p test procedures guided by comprehensive high fidelity simulations of particle interactions at the atomic level within the FPA structure. Monoenergetic (combined) e/p beams can be used to verify the physics interaction models, which then can be driven by the actual radiation envi ...

  9. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: ATOM INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: In this project, we propose to develop the baseline process to form low source-drain contact resistance to the CNTs. This includes finding the right metal stack and annealing recipe to form good ohmic contact to the CNTs. The goal is to achieve a resistance less than 25 k at per nanotube contact. To reach such goal, we will leverage the interfacial dipole alignment of conjugated polyelec ...

  10. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: Carbon Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CFET is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear amplifiers. Increasing ...
