  1. Novel, Optimal, Physics-Based Reduced Order Models for Nonlinear Aeroelasticity

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT03

    Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art, reduced order nonlinear aeroelastic models for multidisciplinary/multi-fidelity optimization problems. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed based upon the mathematical formalism of optimal prediction theory and a novel implementation of a filtered harmonic balance solution met ...

  2. Lightweight Virtualization to Detect, React, and Adapt to Cyber Attacks

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: OSD09IA3

    Many software defenses against reverse engineering, piracy, and tampering rely on disabling the software when such attacks are detected. The proposed research makes innovative use of proces-level software virtualization on a per-application basis to defeat such attacks without disabling the software. The virtualization technology keeps normal operational run time overhead low, invoking more expens ...

  3. Affordable High-Performance Hearing Protection and Communication System

    SBC: AEGISOUND, LLC            Topic: AF081C016

    Aegisounds existing Digital Active Noise Reduction (DANR) HPD product configuration, developed under a prior Lockheed Martin JSF SDD program, represents the baseline hearing protector system for this SBIR project.  Affordability and performance requirements formed the basis for a Phase I investigation of the DANR HPD.  Key areas of Phase I investigation included the product cost, power consumpti ...

  4. Nanophase Technology for Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) Battery Safety

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Many of the safety incidents that occur with lithium-ion batteries are due to the carbon anode currently in use. Incidents can occur that include overcharging in the system, which causes lithium metal to plate out of the cell and passivation at the surfaces of the electrodes in the cell, which can also cause an incident. Applied Colloids proposes the use of its proprietary nanomaterials in a "ro ...

  5. Wideband Antenna Structure for Airborne Communications Systems

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: AF073066

    Much effort has been devoted in recent years to develop compact broadband antennas to address antenna congestion on small aerial platforms (including small Unmanned Airborne Vehicles) to address the explosive growth of communication and connectivity needs. Over the past decade, Applied EM has also been involved in the development and commercialization of broadband antenna technology. During our Ph ...

  6. Miniature GPS Antenna Arrays Using Novel Materials

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: AF073072

    Ubiquitous needs for Global Positioning System (GPS) systems implies a requirement for smaller GPS antennas and arrays that can be adapted in all sorts of military and commercial platforms from missiles to small UAVs and even for hand-held applications. Current anti-Jam GPS antennas are approximately 14" in diameter making them too large for several platforms of interest such as unmanned aerial ve ...

  7. Anti-Jam Improvements by Combining Remotely Located Global Positioning System (GPS) Antennas on an Unpiloted/Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Platform

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: AF083159

    Currently, there are two types of antenna configurations which are used with GPS receivers, fixed reception pattern antenna (FRPA) and controlled reception pattern antenna (CRPA). FRPA is a single element antenna and can not use angle of arrival as a discriminator to suppress interfering or jamming signals. CRPA is an array of antenna elements with the ability to reject interference signals. Many ...

  8. Near-Field Velocity Measurement System for Wind Tunnel Testing

    SBC: Applied University Research            Topic: AF071345

    Applied University Research, Inc. (AUR) is proposing to develop a state-of-the-art prototype wind velocity vector instrument for measuring the near-field flow of models under test in large-scale high-speed wind tunnels. The instrument under consideration is based upon laser-Doppler velocimetry (LDV), but with modifications to enable sub-miniaturization of the laser-emitting probe head and that lev ...

  9. Organically Assured Routing System (OARS) for the Airborne Network


    The Air Force has identified the need for an assured routing system for the Airborne Network (AN) that will protect the routing infrastructure from security attacks designed to disrupt the operation of the network. Subversion of the network routing function by attackers could be catastrophic for mission-critical applications running on the AN. This is because security attacks on the routing functi ...

  10. Border Gateway Protocol with Mobility Extensions (BGP-MX)


    The inter-domain routing protocol BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) was designed for statically configured land-based networks, which experience infrequent topology changes. As a result, BGP performs poorly in airborne network environment, where the topology of the networks is constantly changing because of domains mobility. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) has, as part of its Phase I effort, ...
