  1. A Casualty Evacuation Mission Management System for High Degree of Freedom Platforms

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: A11aT032

    The combined team of Neya Systems, LLC (NSL), and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), propose to develop the Casualty Evacuation Mission Management System (CEMMS), an effort that will provide significant opportunities to: 1. Develop a Domain Specific Language (DSL) that enables translation from commander"s intent to UGV commands, leveraging a large base of work developed under an existing Army SBIR ...

  2. Low-cost, low-defect Solvothermal growth of large diameter Gallium Nitride substrates

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF10BT28

    ABSTRACT: Availability of high quality, large area gallium nitride (GaN) single crystal substrates is one of the most outstanding issues for III-V nitride materials. Today's GaN device processes typically employ HVPE grown on sapphire and silicon carbide substrates, requiring elaborate buffer layers and deposition techniques to overcome lattice mismatch and dislocation densities up to 109/cm ...

  3. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  4. Bioinformatic Based Wearable Critical Care Monitor

    SBC: BODYMEDIA ADVANCED DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: A08T033

    There is a well-understood need for a small bioinformatics based wearable critical care monitor allowing for the remote monitoring and triage of wounded warfighters. Our Phase I research demonstrated that by augmenting a commercial wearable body monitoring device (BodyMedia"s SenseWear Armband) with ECG and sophisticated signal processing including the wavelet transform invented at Virginia Commo ...

  5. Superconducting Power Transmission for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF08BT12

    ABSTRACT: Airborne directed energy weapons offer advantages over conventional weapons as they minimize collateral damage, reducing the cost of post-conflict reconstruction. However, the high power levels required by these weapons present size and weight challenges for airborne applications. In particular, the current capacity required of the power transmission cables can make them one of the heav ...

  6. Heat Transfer Prediction in Transitional Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF08BT13

    ABSTRACT: Our Phase II program concentrates on extending, rectifying, and validating the ETM engineering transition model for 3D flows. ETM solves PDE"s for both transition onset and intermittency and has full 3D capabilities, shown to generate swept onset curves and variable transitional lengths downstream of the onset curve. It is incorporated into Navier-Stokes codes in a manner akin to the i ...

  7. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  8. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The innovation proposed is a computationally-tractable, physics-based, portable turbulent combustion modeling strategy for application to a wide range of Air Force aero-propulsive systems, including augmentors, liquid rockets and scramjets. This modeling strategy will be implemented within an Application Programming Interface (API) library suitable for easy integration within Air Force ...

  9. Practical Traveling Wave Parametric Amplifier for Quantum Computing and Mixed Signal Applications

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: A14AT010

    A collaboration between research engineers at Solid State Scientific Corporation and the University of MassachusettsBoston proposes the exploration of a new class of superconducting traveling wave parametric amplifier (TWPA) that exploits the large nonlinear inductance of a unique quantum device known as a superinductor. The nonlinear properties of the superinductor provide high gain of weak sign ...

  10. 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. ...
