  1. Multifunctional Prepregs and Laminated Composites Made by Shear Pressing Carbon Nanotube Arrays

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT36

    A novel method of fabricating carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced polymer matrix composites is proposed. It includes growing super-aligned carbon nanotube arrays on a flat substrate, using NCSU proprietary shear pressing method to compress the grown arrays into a layer of densely packed, highly aligned CNTs inclined at an angle of several degrees to the substrate, separating the produced CNT sheet fr ...

  2. Ultra Low Power, High Performance Microprocessor Core for Military and Space Applications

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    For Phase I, an ultra low power, high performance microprocessor core using a combination of double-gated and independent double-gated Flexfet™ SOI CMOS technology from American Semiconductor will be designed to address the requirements of military and space communication systems. High integration feasibility using Flexfet technologies followed by confirmation of the power and performance improv ...

  3. Adaptive Thermal Control Coating for Radiation Hardening of Spacecraft

    SBC: Applied Material Systems Engineering, Inc.(AMSENG)            Topic: AF093071

    The purpose of this SBIR phase I proposal is to design and demonstrate the feasibility of processing the adaptive thermal control material system (TCMS) that is radiation hardened. Through this proposal the engineered TCMS for the space craft protection is envisioned for the needed survivability and better protection of the space assets and the investments. The goal here is to develop an adaptive ...

  4. Solid Propellant Shock to Detonation Modeling and Formulation

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF08T003

    Determining the hazard classification of new propellant formulations is important for transportation safety and storage concerns. To avoid costly grain redesign and additional testing, a model that adequately predicts the shock sensitivity, including the outcome of the Naval Ordnance Laboratory Large Scale Gap Test, of modern solid propellants is required. The goals of this proposal are to de ...

  5. Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

    SBC: STRAD Corporation            Topic: AF083184

    Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce reflections off the target, during Phase I, we have developed two new approaches for discriminating small delay differences from a sequence of radar dwells ...

  6. A Proactive Countermeasure to Harden Integrated Circuits Against Exploitation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD10IA1

    We propose to implement a novel countermeasure against the exploitation of integrated circuit hardware. The proposed countermeasure is applicable to both FPGAs and ASICs, increases design obfuscation and promises to block embedded hardware exploits. It also is fully compatible with virtually any other hardware exploit countermeasure and reduces forensic costs when exploits are suspected. The propo ...

  7. Advanced Computational Methods for Study of Electromagnetic Compatibility

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF09BT13

    Aircraft often are subject to externally generated electromagnetic interference (EMI) comprising high intensity radiated fields of strengths in excess of 1000 V/m generated by radars operating at 400 MHz and above. They also are subject to generally less intense fields produced by internal sources such as handheld radios. This EMI may adversely affect the aircraft’s communication, navigation, an ...

  8. Ultra-Low Noise Amplifier for Enhanced Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) Detection

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF083154

    The goal of this proposed project is to design, fabricate and characterize ultra-low-noise amplifiers for radar and signal intelligence applications. High frequency, wide bandwidth signals have several advantages in applications ranging from high data rate communications to high resolution radar. However, the biggest challenge to realizing these systems is limitations to the amplifier noise perfor ...

  9. Autonomous Vehicle Awareness Sensors

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: AF083194

    The program will report on a novel design approach for a dual mode satellite sensor to be mounted on a Geo-COPS satellite. A mission and sensor trade study will rely heavily on available simulation programs to predict performance outcome. The satellite would be located strategically in Geo-orbit to monitor the location and activity of all satellites in the zone of interest. Proposed is very high ...

  10. Shock Initiation of Energetic Materials Due to Mesoscale Features

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: OSD09W01

    IllinoisRocstar LLC envisions the initial product of this effort to be a shock-to-detonation module (Rocpack-RocSDT) for inclusion in our insensitive munitions simulation code, IMSIM. IMSIM is a first-generation software product for the simulation of energetic material behavior in insensitive munitions-related studies and applications. The overall IMSIM process initiates with nondestructive charac ...
