  1. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  2. RFID sensor for Detection of Biowarfare Agents

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF07T016

    The use of Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) coupled to biological warfare agent (BWA) detection systems provides a means of strategically placing sensors in the field and then reading the threat at a distance. The challenges are in the integration of specific, sensitive detectors with RFID systems in a manner that allows miniaturization to the nanoscale, facilitating distribution with a mini ...

  3. Connected Autonomous Space Environment Sensors (CASES)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF07T031

    We propose to investigate under Phase-I of the STTR Program FY07 the development of space weather sensor networks including the next-generation of GPS space weather monitors, the network interfaces for internet and remote operation, and system-wide analysis algorithms to validate and calibrate the network. This new instrument will also be much more resistant to space weather effects, such as cycle ...

  4. HF Software Receiver Arrays (HFSRA)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF07T031

    Accurate real-time knowledge of the bottomside ionosphere is necessary for covert HF communications, near vertical incidence sounding, and geolocation of HF transmitters. Sky-wave TDOA geolocation is the "holy grail" of HF geolocation techniques due to its passive nature, low cost, and easy deployment. To achieve sky-wave TDOA it is necessary to know the dominant mode of propagation, which require ...

  5. RADAR Moving Target Indication Interpretability Rating Scale (MTIIRS)

    SBC: dNovus RDI            Topic: AF07T032

    Because emerging Moving Target Indication recognition technologies will likely be soon be incorporated into developing systems such as Space-Based Radar (SBR) and retrofitted into new system blocks, (e.g. JSTARS, ASARS), there is an acute need to develop a rigorous theoretical framework for assessing MTI radar sensors. As these emerging technologies are introduced, additional emphasis will likely ...

  6. Multifunctional Design of Load Bearing Antenna Structure for Small UAVs

    SBC: GENEVA AEROSPACE, INC.            Topic: AF05T019

    Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAVs) have demonstrated their value in military Surveillance, Reconnaissance, and Intelligence operations as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). While small UAVs have demonstrated their value in the warfighting environment, their size, weight, and power constraints limit their mission footprints to video surveillance or high band (GHz) communications. Lower ...

  7. Predictive Modeling/Control for Intersubband and Interband Quantum Devices Grown by MBE


    This Phase II STTR effort will demonstrate intersubband and interband quantum device modeling capability using UT-Dallas BandProf software package and optical coupling efficiency modeling using SMU optical cavity software packages. The software model will predict fabricated device characteristics based on data inputs from real-time in-situ growth monitoring and post-growth epi materials characteri ...

  8. Platform for a Cold Atom Inertial Navigation System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF07T024

    Lynntech in collaboration with the atomic physics group at the University of Virginia propose to implement an experimental study of the decohering effects on a Bose Einstein Condensate interferometer. The end result will be the specifications for the design of a stable rotation platform used for the validation of a BEC based inertial navigation system. An ideal navigation system would provide gu ...

  9. Advanced Materials for Low Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD07T006

    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) offer high efficiency, quiet operation, reduced emissions, internal fuel reformation, and fuel flexibility, however current SOFCs are restricted to predominately stationary applications based on their high operating temperatures and expensive high temperature ceramics. SOFCs that operate at low temperatures (LT) (

  10. Hybrid CMOS/Nanodevice Integrated Circuits- Design and Fabrication

    SBC: MOLECULAR IMPRINTS, INC.            Topic: AF07T025

    This proposal will investigate fabrication of CMOL devices (CMOS/nanowire/MOLecular hybrids) using fabrication processes that have commercial viability. These circuits are one of the most promising approaches for continued device scaling well below 10nm. Such circuits combine a semiconductor transistors system with a nanowire crossbar, with simple two-terminal nanodevices self-assembled at each cr ...
