  1. SCorES, A Logical Programming Environment for Distributed Systems

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF04T023

    Distributed systems, important to civilian and military infrastucture, have steadily become more complex and steadily more difficult to understand, implement, and maintain. Addressing these dangers, a collaboration between ATC-NY and Cornell University will build a mathematically based tool, SCorES, providing powerful automated support for specifying, developing, verifying, and synthesizing re ...

  2. Automated Design Optimization for Hypersonic Plasma-Aerodynamics

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF04T009

    Clear Science Corp. and the University of Minnesota propose to evaluate and develop design optimization methods that exploit flow ionization associated with hypersonic, trans-atmospheric flight vehicles. Using magnetic fields from on-board devices, power may be extracted from ionized gas generated in the high-energy flow and electromagnetic forces can control heating and aerodynamic loading on th ...

  3. An Open Software Framework for Steganalysis


    We propose to develop a platform-independent Rapid Steganographic Detection Suite (RSDS). The RSDS will be capable of applying a diverse collection of steganalysis detection methods to all relevant files on a PC or other hardware system. The software will have a publicly available API for steganalysis methods and will thus allow new methods to be incorporated by any user who has the RSDS and the ...

  4. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV's and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    This STTR proposes to solve the problem of automated component placement (also known as intelligent packaging) for UAV's and other products by building on our unique state-of-the-art, patented technology platform. The goal of this work is to enable the automated layout of an entire complex product, such as a UAV, featuring a multitude of systems and subsystems with 3D components. This will be ac ...

  5. Alternating Current (AC) Losses Associated with High Temperature Superconductors

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: AF03T023

    Because on their high current carrying capacity in large magnetic fields, biaxially oriented superconducting films (coated superconductors) are the only superconducting materials that offer the possibility of operating in power applications at liquid-nitrogen temperatures in AC fields. Their use is predicated on the assumption that ac losses in these materials can be reduced to a very low level. ...

  6. 2.3 micron High Power Continuous Wave Diode Laser Arrays

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: AF03T025

    For phase I of this STTR, we propose the design, fabrication, and characterization of an electrically-pumped GaSb-based one-dimensional semiconductor laser array emitting at 2.3 microns. The laser array is expected to produce 5 watts of continuous-wave power from a single room-temperature 1 cm long laser bar by the end of phase I, and will be optimized to produce 10-15 watts per bar by the end of ...

  7. Photonic Crystal Chip-scale Optical Networks

    SBC: RSOFT DESIGN GROUP            Topic: AF03T021

    This proposal aims to spur the development of the next-generation of photonic crystal (PC) design tools. While current tools can model individual PC devices, they will prove insufficient to deal with the far-increased complexity of intregrated on-chip PC networks. There is a need for tools to improve both in their raw power and ability to handle very large problems robustly, but also to treat co ...

  8. Novel MgZnO-based spintronic materials and devices.

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03T020

    This Phase I STTR project addresses the development of novel Zinc Oxide-based spintronic devices. The spintronic devices will find widespread application in civilian and military markets offering new generation of transistors, lasers and integrated magnetic sensors. The objective of the Phase I effort is to explore novel doping schemes to achieve room temperature ferromagnetism in ZnMgO materials ...

  9. Low-Noise Avalanche Photodiodes for Mid-IR Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF04T021

    Avalanche photodiodes (APDs) are the detector of choice for low noise, high speed, high sensitivity photodetectors. Applications in the mid-IR (3-5 micron) include optical trace gas detection, LADAR, quantum cryptography and targeting countermeasures. Currently there are no commercially available APDs operating in this wavelength range. To address this need, this Phase I program will investigat ...

  10. Development of III-V Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03T024

    The purpose of this Phase I study is to develop quantum cascade laser (QCL) with terahertz (THz) emission. Terahertz photons have energies which lie in the regime between optical photons and high frequency radio waves and have many important commercial and military applications. In the QCL, quantum wells (QWs) and injection layers are grown in a III-V semiconductor superlattice. The QWs and barr ...
