  2. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    The main objective of this program is to develop a new class of high performance hard magnetic materials that will maintain an energy product of 30 MGOe or greater at temperatures up to 450 °C. These novel magnetic materials are greatly needed for the "more electric" airplanes and space vehicle applications where a high operating temperature is a strict requirement. The approaches to be used for ...

  3. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: JHM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T021

    The establishment of an analytic framework for image processing algorithmic development utilizing stochastic resonance is a prime objective of this proposal. In order to achieve this goal, it is imperative to assess the relationship of the non-Gaussian nature of the noise processes, the non-linear aspects of the signal processing or suboptimal detection device, as well as the characteristics of t ...

  4. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Boron has significant potential as a high energy density ingredient in ramjet propellants and fuels. This is due to boron's high heat of combustion and low atomic weight. For a ramjet ducted rocket, theoretical volume specific impulses of 1600- 1800 sec g cm-3 have been reported for a fuel rich boron solid propellant, 45 % greater than the best hydrocarbon composition. Boron's high ignition tem ...

  5. Innovative Concepts for Wireless Strain Sensing in Turbine Engines

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T004

    MesoScribe Technologies proposes the development of a passive wireless strain system based on the Company's innovative Direct Write technology. Embedded circuit elements will be fabricated directly onto the surfaces of compressor blades and stator vanes. The sensors themselves will be very low weight and low profile. A strictly passive strain monitoring configuration is proposed where a resona ...

  6. HTS Magnet Quench Protection

    SBC: MTECH Laboratories, LLC            Topic: AF04T002

    A program is proposed which will lead to the development of novel quench protection technologies in high-temperature superconductive magnets operating at temperatures above 30K. These magnets are intended for use in compact, energy-dense magnet systems for the Air Force. In Phase I, innovative approaches will be explored. The designs will be based on many years of experience with both passive a ...

  8. 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. ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
