  1. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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. ...

  5. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  9. Reduced-Order Kinetic Models for Real Fuels Applicable to High-Pressure Turbulent Flows

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A16AT001

    Gas turbine combustion plays an important role in a range of Army systems critical to fulfilling the Armys strategic mission. Since high-performance gas turbine propulsion systems operate under highly turbulent high-pressure flow conditions, reliable computational design support tools are used to supplement expensive experimental and flight test programs. In order to provide the desired predictive ...

  10. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A16AT009

    Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) is an infrared detector material that promises higher quantum efficiency than antimony-based superlattices in the longwave infrared (LWIR). This is due to the longer diffusion length of minority carrier holes in the bulk than in superlattices where they are localized. No native substrate exists for lattice-matched growth of InAs(x)Sb(1-x) material with LWIR bandgaps. So a ke ...
