  1. A Large Size 3D Holographic Display with PR Polymers

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF08T001

    In this STTR project, Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi), teaming up with Prof. Di Bartolo’s group at Boston College, aims at developing a large size (300 mm x 300 mm) updatable 3D display with photorefractive polymers for battlefield and command and control applications. The proposed 3D display system features fast response (feasible to video-rate), high diffraction efficiency, and relati ...

  2. Adaptive Hierarchical Multiple Models to Control Dynamic Systems

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF07T012

    Modern control theory offers mathematically rigorous and powerful solutions to many dynamic systems. Its limitations are that the classes of dynamic systems covered by the theory are limited to linear systems or certain well-structured nonlinear systems, and the adaptation of the controllers are often slow if the controller parameters are far away from their desired values. On the other hand, the ...

  3. Advanced Window Materials for High Energy Propulsion

    SBC: CERANOVA CORPORATION            Topic: AF07T009

    Window materials are an essential component of some advanced propulsion concepts which require high pressures, high temperatures, low energy losses, and low weights. Window materials must possess a combination of properties such as high mechanical strength, high melting point, high transparency, low density, and good resistance to the operating environment. CeraNova proposes the development of f ...

  4. Compact CMOS-Compatible Optical Transceiver

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF14AT13

    ABSTRACT: Close integration of photonic devices with silicon complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) electronics can yield significant performance improvements in many applications. The recent development of novel integrated structures in silicon including waveguides, resonators, and photodetectors will enable dramatic reductions in size, weight, and power for components implementing compl ...

  5. Composite Transistor Array Vapor Sensor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: AF08T015

    The Giner, Inc. Phase I program will examine the response to explosive and toxic gas simulants of sensor arrays using a combination of specifically doped metal oxides (DMO) developed at Giner, Inc. in conjunction with metallophthalocyanine (MPc) thin films developed at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Electronic controls developed for the MPc sensors will be evaluated also for th ...

  6. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  7. GUARD: General Utility for Assessing Risk of Disclosure

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT14

    ABSTRACT: Information is a national asset that must be protected. To make effective use of this asset, information sharing is critical between government agencies, with foreign government partners, and with the private sector. At the same time, in practice, balancing information sharing and information protection can be difficult. Tools are needed to address many challenges, including managing ...

  8. MMF-based Failure Initiation and Progression for Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: AF08T025

    Micromechanics of failure (MMF) is a new approach that links strength and life of fiber, matrix and their interfaces to those of plies, laminates and structures. Use of MMF for static strength and its extension to creep rupture and fatigue life prediction already show great promise. MMF for this proposal will be extended to interlaminar hybrids like Tigr and Glare, but also many structural details ...
