  1. High Thermal Conductivity Gaskets Based On Carbon Nanotube Vertical Arrays

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF121060

    ABSTRACT: Through the Phase II program, NTL will finalize the materials development and demonstrate the ability of a TIM material based on carbon nanotube vertical arrays to meet general requirements for space applications. In addition we will define and initiate tests required for a specific Air Force application. NTL will not only demonstrate a heat transfer coefficient greater than 45,000 W/ ...

  2. New Radar Exploitation Methods for Combat Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF131130

    ABSTRACT: Current automatic target recognition (ATR) training processes require expensive data collections or extensive, high fidelity target modeling and validation whose costs and lead times will limit the ongoing sustainability of ATR target databases. Radar based systems for combat identification (CID) suffer from sustainability issues due to the extreme complexity of the target databases an ...

  3. CANTO: The Constructive Agent NLI Toolkit

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131028

    ABSTRACT: SIFT will dramatically improve the Air Force's ability to train using synthetic teammates by leveraging prior synthetic teammate research to develop a generalized and reusable natural language interaction (NLI) development toolkit for constructive agents. We will simplify the creation of constructive agents by making it easy to develop and test the required situation and linguis ...

  4. Advanced Corrosion Resistant Coating Systems for Preservation of Aerospace and Infrastructure Systems Used in Military and Commercial Applications

    SBC: Porter Scientific, Inc.            Topic: AF112217

    ABSTRACT: A new knowledge-based approach is proposed to mitigate the corrosion of metallic surfaces. The approach is based on the rational design of molecular coating materials based on a new class of phthalocyanines. While these materials resemble fluorinated polymers in their capacity to prevent the intrusion of moisture associated waterborne ions and the diffusion of oxygen to the metallic ...

  5. A High Performance 90nm"Schottky"CMOS Process for Mitigation of Parasitic Bipolar Effects and Dramatically Reduced Bit Upset Rates

    SBC: Avolare 2, LLC            Topic: AF103087

    ABSTRACT: Avolare2 proposes to establish a 90nm metal source/drain"Schottky"CMOS process at Cypress Semiconductor"s high volume manufacturing facility in Bloomington, MN. Schottky CMOS will have a profound impact on the performance and reliability of most of the integrated circuits (ICs) providing critical functionality for electronic systems operating in high radiation environments. The Schottk ...

  6. LL-HAMMER: Long Lived Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131092

    ABSTRACT: Military missions increasingly rely on satellites for surveillance, communication, and navigation. While performing these mission-critical tasks, satellites must respond quickly to new enemy threats and changing mission objectives. Under prior AFRL SBIR awards, SIFT and TRACLabs have developed the Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response (HAMMER) to provide on-board auto ...

  7. Crypto-Partitioning Aware PEP for Tactical Networks (CAPTAIN)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF112034

    ABSTRACT: As the USAF and other military services migrate to an IP-based tactical network, i.e., the"IP to the edge"paradigm, the use of end-to-end IPSEC-based encryption of network traffic using HAIPE devices presents a tremendous opportunity for cost savings compared to traditional link layer encryption for implementing needed COMSEC capabilities. Despite the attractive cost advantages offered ...

  10. Enforcing Integrated Circuit Trust Via Unified Multi-Level Countermeasures

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF112151

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this work is to demonstrate a prototype of an innovative method to protect military space microelectronics from unauthorized tampering. The method will employ the joint cooperation of multiple countermeasures that operate at several levels of system abstraction. The target is a class of embedded systems that are implemented using high-density FPGAs. A dual-use commercia ...
