  1. Micro Games for Cyber Threat Awareness

    SBC: Wombat Security Technologies            Topic: AF083032

    The goal of this SBIR Phase II proposal is to develop a web-based platform that (1) hosts a collection of micro games for cybersecurity awareness and training; (2) simplifies the development of micro games by maximizing re-use of functionality; (3) helps administrators manage and deploy micro games; and (4) helps analysts assess readiness through a suite of tools for analytics. In Phase I, we expl ...

  2. FADEC Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093175

    The Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) controls engine operation. The FADEC case must be maintained below 63°C, while the environment can be as hot as 170°C. The current design uses fuel to cool the FADEC, however, this often limits the allowable ground or flight idle time before the fuel is too hot to cool the FADEC. This SBIR Phase I project will develop a thermal management syst ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Dichoptic Vision System (DiVS)

    SBC: CHATTEN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: AF093018

    Today’s head-mounted displays fall short of providing wide-FOV imagery with high visual acuity. One reason for this is the difficulty of creating lightweight, distortion-free wide-angle optics. Instead of attempting to recreate the entire visual field at high resolution, we propose to present a small, high-resolution foveal image to one eye and a larger, lower-acuity peripheral image to the ot ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Nanodielectrics with Nonlinear Response for High Power Microwave Generation

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF08T030

    Fine grained BST ceramics with high density has attractive properties including nonlinearity, low dielectric loss and high dielectric breakdown strength to realize high tunability. In Phase I program we demonstrated that modification of powder characteristics and composition in nano BST powder resulted in greater than 65% tunability at 250KV/cm with ~500KV/cm breakdown strength and Q value greate ...

  8. Compact, Submicrosecond Discharge Pulsed Power Capacitors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF083007

    TRS Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop ceramic capacitors as discharge pulse power capacitors for high-power microwave (HPM) systems. In the phase I program TRS demonstrated that high breakdown strength can be achieved in multilayer ceramic capacitors by controlling microstructure. Antiferroelectric ceramic capacitor with 17 active layers developed on Phase I exhibited electric field as high ...

  9. PREFLAG: Preparing Allied Forces for Red Flag with Desktop Simulation and Speech-Interactive Agents

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF093027

    A typical Red Flag may involve 1,500 personnel and 100 aircraft representing four or five nations. Each event presents critical safety-of-flight and range considerations. Many participants are non-native speakers of English, in a context where technical, rapid, and information-rich communication can pose steep challenges even to native speakers; the potential for misunderstandings, miscommunicatio ...

  10. High-Fidelity Simulation of Dynamic Weakly Ionized Plasma Phenomena

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF09BT10

    In the Phase I program, we will design an experiment/test article, and test/validate instrumentation and diagnostics, to be used to obtain plasma properties about a hypersonic vehicle having characteristics and features of the RAM-C flight vehicle. The test model is to be installed and tested in the LENS-XX facility (in Phase II) and experimental planning will be supported by detailed numerical si ...
