  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. High Fidelity Heralded On Demand Single Photon Source

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF141009

    ABSTRACT: To provide reliably secure communications, development of practical quantum optical devices for ground-to-space quantum key distribution is a necessity. The overall goal of this Air Force effort is to develop and deliver a single photon source based on heralding to indicate when a photon has been generated. The proposed device will produce single photons on demand with high efficiency ...

  7. Attack Amelioration via Layered Temporal Virtualizaton ("Primer")

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF141038

    ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of a computing appliance which uses Temporal Virtualization to help ameliorate the effects of malicious software activity. Temporal Virtualization involves the manipulation of virtual time in Type-2 (software) virtual clients in a way that frustrates an adversary"s attempts to corrupt or break out of virtualization. An attack model is assume ...

  8. Dynamic Airborne Mission Communication System (DYNAMICS)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF141046

    ABSTRACT: Current Air Force mission planning systems require that users manually enter flight paths. For the emerging class of airborne communications platforms this is sub-optimal. The mission of these platforms is to extend communications ranges and enable enhanced (particularly IP-based) connectivity for other mission elements. This calls for a new type of planning system. Rather than having e ...

  9. Mission-Based Agile Network Traffic Reprioritization (MANTRA) System for Crypto-Partitioned Tactical Environments

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF141049

    ABSTRACT: IP-based tactical networks which are being deployed increasingly must possess the capability to gracefully shed mission functions in accordance with the intent of the commander when network congestion occurs. Such congestion events are expected to be prevalent in tactical wireless networks because of two major factors: (1) the increasing use of bandwidth-hungry applications, such as ful ...

  10. Improved Design Package for Fracture Mechanics Analysis

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: AF141075

    ABSTRACT: To address the needs of the U.S. Air Force to improve existing software design packages so that they account better for short crack growth regime, Sentient proposes to incorporate its its DigitalClone-Component(DCC) modeling technology into these packages for short crack growth regime. The use of fracture mechanics to characterize the growth of fatigue cracks in metals is well establish ...
