  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. Polymer-ceramic Nanocomposites for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF06T002

    Agiltron is developing a new family of polymer-ceramic nanoparticle composite dielectric materials for high power capacitors such as required in directed energy pulsed systems. In Phase I we showed that embedding large dielectric constant fillers into nanodielctrics results in a composite with greatly improved breakdown strength and reduced dielectric loss compared to conventional materials. Our ...

  3. Optoelectronic Analog-Digital Converter

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF07T028

    We propose a novel poly-phase sampling scheme for an optoelectronic analog-to-digital converter (ADC) module which entails parallel sampling of different phases of an input RF signal to realize a 12-bit 10.24GSPS RF signal AD conversion. A unique feature of this approach is that electrical-in to electrical-out signal transfer is maintained for the optoelectronic sampling and demultiplexing circuit ...

  4. Research Scientist

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF07T037

    Agiltron proposes to develop an infrared fiber having inherently attractive features of high wavelength conversion efficiency, wide wavelength-conversion bandwidth, and agile wavelength routing all in IR regions (2 ¡V 12 ƒYm). The design is closely coupled with our unique expertise in low loss IR chalcogenide fiber fabrication and IR photonics. The approach overcomes the difficulties associated ...

  5. High Critical Current in Metal Organic Derived YBCO Films


    The Phase I STTR demonstrated major improvements in the deposition of high critical current YBCO films by a low-cost Metal Organic Deposition process on RABiTS substrates. A critical current of nearly 500 A/cm-width (77K, self-field) was achieved in a short length 2 m thick YBCO film, exceeding the Phase I goal of 450 A/cm-width. This performance is equivalent to a current of 200 A in an indus ...

  6. Intelligent Icons for Meta-information Adaptive Presentation (12MAP)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T031

    Modern warfare is intensely information centric with vast amounts of information transmitted around the battlespace. Within this environment, it is critical to provide predictive and timely intelligence in planning and execution of operations. A tool is necessary to provide direction of ISR in the tasks of collection, exploitation, analysis, and dissemination. The tool resulting from this research ...

  7. CIFTS:Communications and Information Flow Tracking System

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T027

    In organizations such as the Air and Space Operations Center (AOC), team members collaboratively process information about time sensitive targets for prosecution in time constrained situations. To assure the highest degree of performance, operators undergo periodic training. Training effectiveness is maximized by providing performance measurement and feedback to operators, so they can learn from t ...

  8. GATER: Game-based Assessment for Training and Empirical Research

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T011

    Researchers who study skill acquisition require synthetic task environments (STEs) that accurately simulate task components that leverage cognitive skills. Multiplayer games hold great promise for use as lightweight STEs; however, to be useful for research, games must be enhanced with technologies that enable controlled manipulation of simulation conditions and principled development of performanc ...

  9. High-Resolution Wide-Dynamic-Range MEMS-Based Closed-Loop Adaptive Optics System

    SBC: Block Mems, LLC            Topic: AF06T030

    Block MEMS, LLC (Block) and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) are proposing a unique approach to wave front processing and correction using an adaptive optics deformable mirror (DM) technology. The key technical challenges involve a DM that has one million pixels, each moving vertically up to 40 microns at a frame rate of 100 kHz. Not only does this present a challenge for the m ...

  10. A Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Defensive Space Applications

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF07T036

    In this program, Busek Co. Inc and Stanford University will develop and demonstrate a multi-mode high power plasma gun that can be used for both space propulsion and as a counter-measure against space debris or potentially hostile spacecraft. Investigations of this Coaxial High Energy (CHENG) thruster in the 1980's showed that it can damage a target. Because it is efficient over a wide range of ...
