  1. Seamless Non-Line-Of-Sight Communications for Urban Warfare

    SBC: ADAPTIVE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T022

    This project will investigate candidate space-time coding schemes to be incorporated in a multiple-input multiple output two-way communication system that operates within an urban warfare environment. The main objective is to increase channel capacity to achieve high-quality video transmission using narrow signal bandwidths, typically deployed for voice channels. The investigation will determine t ...

  2. Passive High Performance Heat Storage and Dissipation Technology for Transient High Power Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T010

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), in partnership with the University of Nevada-Reno (UNR), is developing a high performance metal hydride heat storage and dissipation technology for high power lasers. The proposed technology incorporates heat pipes for passive acquisition and dissipation of high heat flux heat loads and metal hydrides for storage of the heat loads during the laser operati ...

  3. Flow-Field Seeding Techniques for Large Transonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF06297

    Optical measurements including laser velocimetry (LV), particle image velocimetry (PIV), and other similar techniques are becoming a more important part of aerodynamic testing. However their implementation into large production wind tunnels is severely hindered by difficulties with flow seeding. Phase I of this program will focus on the problem of seed delivery and dispersal into a transonic strea ...

  4. Commercially Rad-hard Advanced Digital Library (CRADL).

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF05018

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), U.S. Air Force and agencies like the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently rad-hard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes a new core cell library that can meet next generation high ...

  5. Wax Substitutes for Melt Castable Explosive Fills.

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: AF06151

    The use of carnauba wax in melt/castable explosives yields a insensitive explosive formulation that enhances overall safety for the use of these munitions in the field. However, carnauba wax is only obtained from overseas sources and there is no domestic source for this material. This leads to shortages of material and higher prices. There exists a need for a wax substitute to replace the carna ...

  6. End-to-End QoS IP Techniques for Heterogeneous Networks (EQuIP)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF05087

    Heterogeneous networks are being utilized to provide the communication infrastructure needed to transport multimedia traffic and mission critical traffic. Currently, there does not exist a complete solution that enables the efficient utilization of heterogeneous environments in order to provide end-to-end security and QoS provisioning to multimedia flows and mission critical data. During Phase I, ...

  7. Design, fabrication, and characterization of novel waveguide structures for high-power and compact THz sources based on a novel concept

    SBC: ArkLight            Topic: AF06110

    In the proposed work we will investigate the THz properties of a slab waveguide made from a GaP or ZnGeP2 wafer. We plan to investigate how the width of a slab waveguide will affect the output power of the THz waves and normalized conversion efficiencies. We are particularly interested in the exploration of how the multi-modes supported by the waveguide will affect the THz parametric conversion du ...

  8. Field Mistuning Inspection Tool

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF05183

    Blade Diagnostics Corporation’s IBR Field Mistuning Inspection System will help the DoD and engine manufacturers develop a systematic approach for assessing and managing mistuning in integrally bladed rotors (IBRs). Mistuning refers to small variations in the blade frequencies that can cause a large amplification of vibratory response and failure from high cycle fatigue (HCF). To improve robus ...

  9. Identification of Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) Damping

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF06162

    Due to funding and scheduling limitations, current testing for different IBR damping techniques and treatments has been forced to be accomplished simultaneously on a single IBR. Just like IBRs in service, the rotors are mistuned and the modal response is highly coupled. Mistuning refers to the fact that slight manufacturing differences cause each blade to have a different natural frequency – t ...

  10. Cognitive Architecture Bridge (CAB)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05088

    The rapid technology development for modeling and simulating human behavior and cognition has resulted in many incompatible Human Behavioral Representation (HBR) software systems. As HBR technology comes of age, there is growing interest in practical applications, such as the Air Force ¡V Integrated Capabilities Environment (AF-ICE) initiative for providing modeling & simulation interoperability, ...
