  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. 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 ...

  4. Efficiency Methodologies for Chemical Reactions of JP-8

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF093162

    As maintaining a stable combustion process is a major challenge associated with augmentor design and operation, numerical simulations are necessary to understand the combustion process and develop control strategies. Thus, it is essential to have reliable reduced kinetic models that are capable of predicting transient combustion phenomena such as ignition and extinction under augmentor operating ...

  5. Multiphase Phenomena In Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF083119

    The advancement of aeropropulsion technologies has placed increasing demand on the structural and thermal capabilities of high speed aeroengines. One solution to absorbing the high heat loads generated during chemical reactions is to use endothermic fuels in the cooling loops of these engines. At the temperatures and pressures likely to be encountered in the thermal management system of high speed ...

  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. Distributed Pattern Detection and Classification in Sensor Networks

    SBC: DCM Research Resources, LLC            Topic: AF09BT09

    In this proposal, DCM Research Resources (DCM), LLC, and Syracuse University propose a highly innovative distributed pattern detection and classification approach, called Compressive Sensing aided Sequential Pattern Detection and Classification (CSASPDC) in Distributed Sensor Network. Our goal is to develop sophisticated approaches that can effectively detect or classify very weak distributed patt ...

  8. Tracking of Resident Space Objects with Covariance Realism


    Covariance realism and consistency are critical to precision tracking and long-term orbit prediction of resident space objects (RSOs). This proposal tackles the key challenges that would yield realistic state estimation error covariance measures for tracking RSOs with relevant covariance consistency metrics. The anticipated result is a proposed estimation architecture that provides state estimatio ...

  9. Data Fusion Strategies for Automated, Distributed Tracking of Space Objects

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF093012

    The Air Force goal of persistent space situation awareness will be achieved in part by the integrated application of distributed sensors appropriately exploited through advanced methods of fusion and automated analysis. This proposal aims to provide commanders with automated, real-time knowledge-enabled decision making capabilities necessary to avoid direct and observable conflict in space while d ...

  10. SmartLink

    SBC: Fastvdo Llc            Topic: AF093034

    The doctrine of battlefield Information Dominance has led to a proliferation of imaging platforms, especially in UASs, leading to a deluge of image/video gathering capability. Yet burgeoning sensor data acquisition is dramatically outpacing downlink capability, which voids the utility of sensor data. Methods to improve the performance of existing data links to transfer sensor data would greatly en ...
