  1. Radiation Hardened Graphene based Nonvolatile Memory for Space Applications

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: This Air Force Phase I SBIR program would develop and demonstrate radiation hardened graphene based nonvolatile memory(NVM) for space applications. Specifically, we would combine advances in resistive memory materials, including graphene and graphene oxides, with the careful manipulation of metal ion, oxygen vacancy or other charge transport in graphene based materials, to realize the r ...

  2. Information Sharing between the Global Information Grid (GIG) and the System Wide Information Management (SWIM) system

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: AF081028

    ABSTRACT: Currently, there is no certified, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)-based solution for cross-domain voice and video. More specifically, combatant commands and other agencies have requirements to enable users across different security networks to initiate and receive direct cross-domain audio and videophone calls, and to participate in audio conference calls. To address this need, Tr ...

  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. Joint Processing of Multi-band Signals with Information Assurance

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: AF121063

    ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge proposes to prototype and evaluate GNSS processing algorithms designed to provide high accuracy and spoofing robustness (information assurance (IA)) by exploiting diversity in radio navigation signals (frequency, location, bandwidth, format) using new signal processing techniques. We will extend on-going work in the area of multi-satellite, multi-frequency GNSS signal proces ...

  5. Optimizing Coating Processes and Chemistries for Enhanced Hot Section, Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) Life

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: AF121171

    ABSTRACT: Environmental protection coatings are required to provide oxidation and hot corrosion protection to hot section turbine components. Unfortunately, the current generation of such coatings can degrade the fatigue resistance of the coated alloy. It is increasingly recognized that, due to the detrimental effect of the coating on low cycle fatigue (LCF) performance, the LCF life of a coated ...

  9. Dual Mode Seeker/Sensor-LADAR/RF

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: AF141136

    Phase I study to determine tradeoffs and feasibility of dual mode RF/LADAR seeker. Work to focus on packaging and design tradeoffs to realize a design for a cost-effective compact dual mode seeker head. Emphasis will be on the LADAR design portion of the seeker, as RF seeker design is very mature. Emphasis will also be on integration of the LADAR/RF subsystems and the handoff protocol between the ...
