  1. Novel Extended-Zone High Power WDM Couplers

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: AF13AT03

    ABSTRACT: High power and low insertion loss WDM components will be developed. In manufacturing WDM components, solid core fibers in both polarization insensitive and polarization maintaining, will be pursued, along with photonics crystal fiber components. A range of fiber sizes and device specifications will be developed and commercially offered by Q-Peak. The component that we propose to develo ...

  2. Novel Sacrificial Fibers for Microvascular Composites with Embedded Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF13AT09

    ABSTRACT: Aurora will demonstrate on our automated fiber placement (AFP) machine that we are able to lay up composite panels that contain sacrificial fibers that can be thermally decomposed to create a microvascular network of small cavities that allow the panel to act as a heat exchanger. The AFP machine is capable of producing composite parts from mold tools as large as 9"high by 18"wide by 56 ...

  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. Pantograph: Secure, Cross-domain Object Models

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Most cross-domain information flows require some human intervention to ensure that the requirements for releasability are met. Such intervention is expensive and slow, and can form a bottleneck in operations. Unfortunately, fully automated sharing of information across security domain boundaries is also fraught with difficulties due to problems with identifying releasable information, a ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Representation and Inference for Developing Deep Language Engines (RIDDLE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT11

    ABSTRACT: Intelligence analysts need to process large amounts of text information to form an understanding of a topic of interest. The sheer amount of information can be overwhelming, so automated text analytics that assist with filtering, information extraction, and document understanding, can be highly beneficial. Deep natural language processing (NLP) applications require both structural knowl ...

  8. Broad-Spectrum PV Devices Based on Charged Quantum Dots

    SBC: Optoelectronic Nanodevices LLC            Topic: AF13AT13

    ABSTRACT: This project addresses the need for high-efficiency broad-spectrum PV cells. The proposed original PV design is based on quantum dots with built-in charge (Q-BIC), where the dot charging is realized by selective doping of dot medium. The preliminary data demonstrate that the charged dots placed in a single p-n-junction strongly enhance harvesting and conversion of sub-bandgap photons an ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Particulate Composite Mixing Processes

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT22

    ABSTRACT: Triton Systems proposes to develop a novel computational model for complex particulate composite mixing processes and the resultant microstructures in high shear environments. Control of mixing of granular and particulate composites (e.g., particles in a polymer matrix) to achieve homogeneous mixtures is essential in many important functional material systems and applications, including ...
