  1. 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 ...

  2. Embedded Cognitive Bayesian Prognostic Health Management for RPA Propulsion Systems

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF121170

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is facing severe budget cuts which force the need to cut operating costs of aircraft and manpower. One way to do this is to increase reliability of systems and components which would reduce maintenance and increase operational availability, which reduces the number of aircraft needed to complete missions. The Air Force desires a new prognostic health management (PHM) appro ...

  3. Electromagnetic Simulation Software for Strongly Coupled Plasmas

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF11BT23

    ABSTRACT: Strong coupling in ionized plasmas occurs when inter-particle interactions result in correlation energies that are comparable to the mean kinetic energy of the thermal motion of individual particles. Strongly coupled plasmas are known to be present in a number of physical systems including ultra-cold plasmas created in the laboratory and present in the ionosphere, explosive gases associ ...

  4. Wide Temperature, High-Frequency Capacitors for Aerospace Power Conditioning Applications

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: AF093172

    ABSTRACT: Electrically driven technologies are replacing hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical systems in new military aircraft designs to improve capability, reliability and maintainability. This transition requires high performance electronic components capable of operating over a wide temperature range. Capacitors, which provide necessary power conditioning, have been identified as a limiting ...

  5. Cryogenic Optical Refrigeration for Space Applications

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF131083

    ABSTRACT: If awarded a SBIR Phase II contract, ThermoDynamic Films, LLC, together with the University of New Mexico (UNM) will build a first-generation optical cryocooler. They will add a calibrated load to the device and characterize its efficiency and its cooling speed. Solid-state cryocoolers, which are compact and produce no vibrations, are ideal for many space-born and terrestrial electronic ...

  6. Integrated Collaborative Mission Planning, Briefing and Debriefing Tools for Crews and Teams in LVC Operations

    SBC: TECHFLOW SCIENTIFIC            Topic: AF131019

    ABSTRACT: The mission life cycle involves many steps and participants. Each step, from planning to mission briefings, mission execution, and debriefs, requires close collaboration between participants. Even a localized crisis response may involve geographically scattered participants. There is a proliferation of data in the process, but getting this data to the right people at the right time i ...

  7. Synthetic Language Interface Toolkit for Chat (SynChat)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF131028

    ABSTRACT: The ability to access high-quality training anywhere and anytime continues to grow in importance due to the complex nature of operational team environments. Training simulations that use virtual agents that respond and behave like live teammates enhance training and help achieve the train as you fight objective without requiring a complete team of human participants. However, the domain ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Efficient Human Posing and Morphing for Electromagnetic Analysis

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF131029

    ABSTRACT: Radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including permanent tissue damage. Modeling these thermal effects across a whole population of humans is diffic ...

  10. 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 ...
