  1. Aimpoint Maintenance of Ground Targets by Airborne Laser Systems

    SBC: STOCHASTECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF131014

    ABSTRACT: Laser-based directed energy systems are often identified as being game-changing technologies in advancing the mission of the Air Force. Precision efforts, minimal collateral damage, rapid response, and nearly unlimited ammunition are compelling advantages to laser weapon systems. Among the primary challenges to development and deployment is beam control, identified in the 2007 report ...

  2. EDA for Strategic Radiation Hardened Precision Analog IC Obsolescence Mitigation

    SBC: MILANOWSKI & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF131057

    ABSTRACT: This proposed program leverages mature semiconductor TCAD and EDA tools. These tools are widespread in modern analog IC design and already possess capabilities applicable to obsolete part replacement. Our plan for detailed R & D activity emphasizes tool adaptations/improvements for simplifying, automating, and accelerating the overall design retargeting task, the application of radhard- ...

  3. W and V band Airborne SATCOM Transceiver

    SBC: QUINSTAR TECHNOLOGY, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF131061

    ABSTRACT: The proposed work is to develop a high integration, single transmit, multiple receive, digital beamforming, airborne SATCOM transceiver. This can be accomplished by using advanced GaN technologies for the transmitter SSPA and InP technologies for the receiver LNA. Furthermore, we propose to integrate most of the receiver functions (e.g. the LNA, mixer, etc.) on a single InP chip. This w ...

  4. High Efficiency Space Infrared Data Compression

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF131070

    ABSTRACT: Space based Infrared (IR) system generates massive amount of IR surveillance data, which strains the limited communication bandwidth, storage and computational resources onboard space or airborne platforms. This poses a great challenge, especially as the spectral and spatial resolutions of sensors keep increasing and more of the sensors are deployed. In this project, UtopiaCompression ( ...

  5. Radiation Hardened Carbon Nanotube-based Nonvolatile Memory

    SBC: NanoScale Storage Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: Data storage onto Phase Change media with 22nm bit cells is proposed, providing 1Tb (threshold) and potentially 1TB (objective) data capacity in a one square inch memory chip. The chip will be designed for spaced based operation, radiation hardened, low power, and able to operate over the required temperature range with sub 10ns access times. The chip consists of an array of 200x200 Nan ...

  6. Space based Hyper-Spectral Imaging Sensor

    SBC: SPECTRUM PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: AF131146

    ABSTRACT: The Phase I effort will focus on a design tradeoff study to address the mission requirements and how alternate HSI sensor system designs address the requirements. These trades will include field of view and sampling rate versus target velocity within the scene, focal plane array size, number of spectral bands, spatial resolution, scanning method (e.g. Fourier Transform/scanning Fabry-Pe ...

  10. High specific power and cost effective solar array for spacecraft, lighter than air vehicles, and UAVs

    SBC: VectorSum Inc            Topic: AF13AT06

    ABSTRACT: Space solar power systems range in size from the International Space Station with 8 solar arrays producing 84,000 watts all the way down to body-mounted single wafers on individual cubesats. The current state-of-the-art relies on multi-junction gallium arsenide or inverted metamorphic cells affixed to rigid structural panels. The need for a low-mass, high energy output solar array for ...
