  1. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  2. Elan: The Event Logic Assistant

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF07T019

    Abstraction has been the most reliable means for gaining intellectual control of complex problems and for extending the scope and scale of our analytical abilities. In the past several years, ATC-NY and Cornell University have developed the formalism of {\em event logic\/}to support specification and reasoning about distributed systems at a very high level of abstraction and the refinement of spe ...

  3. An Integrated Approach to Sensor Materials Synthesis, Design and Fabrication for Extreme Temperature Applications

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF07T002

    An approach is proposed to identify, characterize and integrate high temperature materials into harsh environment diagnostic systems. Program partner URI will sputter candidate conductive oxides with continuously varying levels of doping. Test specimens will be fabricated and systematically assessed using combinatorial synthesis to determine which exhibit the most favorable characteristics e.g., ...

  4. Wavelength and Polarization Agile Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: MILSYS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF07T027

    Development of new generation of integrated FPAs that are both multispectral and polarimetric in the IR window is proposed for the detection and classification of battlespace objects. The use of existing sensor and camera technology, as the baseline, allows for reduced prototype and development time. The integration of both the wavelength and polarization selective elements within the FPA will p ...

  5. Scalable Mobile Wireless Mesh Networks

    SBC: SPECTRACOM CORP.            Topic: AF06T008

    Scaleable, robust and secure networking of unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs) is an imperative for achieving Air Force objectives in deploying future effects-based operations (EBO). UAVs of the future must overcome degrading network conditions to transfer critical data for reach-back operations, support peer-peer communications, and operate in high mobility environments. To meet these needs we pro ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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. ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
