  1. Ultra-Scalable Nonvolatile Graphene Memory

    SBC: Harper Laboratories            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: The physical scalability of Si based nonvolatile memory is problematic for the terascale integration of space memory. In particular and with regards to Flash, this problem is two-fold as device designs breakdown and photolithographic patterning approaches its limits to minimum feature size. Whereas phase-change and ferroelectric polymer devices have shown promise to scale beyond Flash ...

  2. Angle of Incidence (AOI) Measurement Capability

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF131177

    ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force seeks to advance the state-of-the-art in angle-of-incidence (AOI) sensing. A key motivation is that the lethality of certain weapon systems used against certain targets is often strongly influenced by AOI at a favorable aim point. Weapon systems that can most benefit from AOI sensing include directed energy weapons and precision guided munitions. The proposed work is ...

  3. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expected to ...

  4. A General Solver Framework for Radiative Heat Transfer Models in Combustion Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141084

    Modern combustion systems such as liquid rocket engines and gas turbines are characterized by high operating pressures and temperatures due to increased power-density. Thermal radiation has significant impact on both heat fluxes at the wall and on physical phenomena controlling the combustion process at these conditions. Coupling between radiation, turbulence and chemistry can have a large effect ...

  5. Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) Compliant GPS Receiver for GEO

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF141113

    The objective of this proposal is to develop Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) compliant GPS receiver for Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) applications. In this proposal, we explore an approach to design the GEO GPS SAASM receiver based on improved techniques for signal acquisition (or detection) and then signal tracking (and demodulation) of weak GPS signals. GPS signals availa ...

  6. Triaxial Accelerometer with Low Offset and Noise (TALON)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141135

    Archangel Systems, Inc. proposes a feasibility study coined Triaxial Accelerometer with Low Offset and Noise (TALON) to meet the accelerometer needs for DoD"s next-generation IMUs in agile missile programs. DoD targets for IMU size, weight and power (SWAP) budgets are aggressive. To meet these requirements, TALON leverages prior Archangel work for DARPA"s NGIMG project. Specifically, the MEMS a ...

  7. Cloud-Based Efficient Data Analysis and Reduction (CEDAR)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF141181

    Architecture Technology Corporation (ATCorp) proposes the Cloud-based Efficient Data Analysis and Reduction (CEDAR) system, a novel hardware and software solution to efficiently increase and manage shared compute resources located within an autonomous vehicle to run mission-specific software that analyzes, combines, and filters sensor data in real-time or near real-time according to changing needs ...

  8. Advanced Space Antenna for GPS

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF141243

    We propose to develop a space based radiation hardened GPS transmit antenna capable of forming spot beams to enhance the GPS signal on the ground by greater than 5 dB. It is expected that our transverse compound hybrid antenna will provide as much as 30 dB gain over a hemispherical antenna allowing enhanced signals over specific areas as large as 500 km. A tradeoff between spot size and signal g ...

  9. Enabling Flexible Materials, Devices and Processes for Defense

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT:Emergence and feasibility for flexible body-worn electronics and particularly medical patches requires high performance electronics capability.The problem is that these new technologies must have flexible and conformal physical formats and conventional electronic components are not in any way flexible. In the CLAS Phase I program, a new flexible high-performance manufacturing and material ...

  10. Fast, Anatomy and Physiology Based Computational Tool for RF-Induced Thermal Response

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT: Military and industrial personnel are often exposed to RF electromagnetic energy which can cause thermal and electrokinetic biological effects. To understand these effects, AFRL is using computational electromagnetic tools to predict RF energy deposition and thermal effects in humans. Unfortunately, high resolution thermal simulations are computationally very expensive. The goal of this ...
