  1. Micromachined Deformable Mirrors for Beam Control and Imaging Applications

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: N/A

    This contract develops and expands on the technology for micromachining silicon deformable mirrors as a result of work in Stanford research laboratories over the last 5 years. The commerical and military applications of this technology will be exploitedand specific uses will be investigated. Hardware specific to applications will be prepared and evaluated for a few selected uses.The optics indus ...

  2. Eddy current detection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lock fastener

    SBC: ALBANY INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop novel eddy current probes based on spin dependenttunneling (SDT) magnetoresistive (MR) sensors to enhance the probability ofdetection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lok fasteners. Preliminaryresults show that the use of shaped excitation coils, together with extremelysensitive SDT sensors properly positioned above the structure under inspection,provides a si ...

  3. Ad Hoc Routing for Nanosatellite Constellation Communications

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This proposal suggests an approach to providing self-organizing network communications between the nodes comprising a nanosatellite constellation. Using the proposing firm's existing body of work on self-organizing ad hoc networks for 802.11 wireless LANsand miniaturized robotics platforms as a baseline, issues relating to ad hoc networking in a nanosatellite constellations will be identified, a ...

  4. Common Data Access Models and Services Using Datalets

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force needs to access a large variety of databases with varying data schemas and storage architectures from an equally large variety of applications. This presents a rewarding but challenging problem of enabling access to these databases via commondata access models and services. This problem, and also its most challenging implementation aspect, is particularly significant in the context o ...

  5. Advanced Hearing Protection

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Some ground crews for aircrafts are exposed to ambient noise levels up to 150 dB SPL: at these levels, conduction of sound through tissues is significant and may be responsible for hearing loss. Protecting the ear canal with earplugs and earmuffs cannotprevent damage caused by tissue-conducted sound. Our research partners at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, experts in bioacoustics and ...

  6. Shock Mitigating Technology

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    The advancement of shock mitigation technology is critical to the protection of fuzes in future penetrating weapons that are smaller and faster than current weapons. The first objective of this project during Phase II is to continue the research anddevelopment of three shock mitigation approaches, and apply them to develop a mount or housing that protects the most susceptible component of a fuze, ...

  8. An Inflatable Membrane Impulse Radiating Antenna

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ultra-Wideband (UWB) antennas with broad bandwidth and large apertures could be of great use in a variety of space-based applications, including radar, communications, and surveillance. The challenge is to deploy a large lightweight UWB antenna that isstowable in a small volume, and that will be resistant to the harsh space environment. To overcome these challenges we propose an inflatable impulse ...

  9. Automatic Time Domain Antenna Range

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For companies engaged in the development of new antenna designs, antenna measurement systems represent a huge initial cost, and a significant barrier to entry into the market. Antenna measurement systems typically use a frequency domain Vector NetworkAnalyzer (VNA) and anechoic chamber or large outdoor range. The cost of such systems starts at around $300,000, which is more than most small compani ...
