  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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. Verified and Validated Software for Three-dimensional (3-D) Fatigue Crack Growth and Stable Crack Extension

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF083175

    A user-friendly software package for rapid fatigue evaluation of specific scalable flaw geometries, as well as stable tearing after crack length reaches a specified size, is being developed. The package will employ modified CRACK3D code and use VCCT with 10-noded tetrahedral elements to determine fatigue crack tip parameters (e.g. dK1, dK2, etc.) for fatigue cracks undergoing (a) mixed mode, in-ph ...

  9. Component and Subsystem Development for Compact, Efficient LADAR Ranging

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: AF093089

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility and performance of compact, efficient, radiation hardened laser technology for LADAR detection, ranging and range-gated imaging applications. Traditional laser designs exhibit modest wall plug efficiencies. They are limited in scalability, tough to miniaturize and often intolerant of space radiation. Conventional diode pumped lase ...
