  1. Micromachined Deformable Mirrors for Beam Control and Imaging Applications

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: N/A

    Micromachined deformable mirrors are being commercialized by the contractor and applied to DOD related projects due to their light weight, fast response, small size, and inexpensive fabrication costs. During Phase II, the contractor and university teamwill demonstrate a novel projection system incorporating a micromachined deformable mirror, and develop a complete adaptive optics system based upo ...

  2. Spatially Modulated Reflective Membranes for High-Dynamic-Range Wavefront Control

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: N/A

    Diffractive wavefront control has been demonstrated as a viable technique for high-dynamic-range laser wavefront control. Unfortunately, most conventional programmable diffractive elements, like liquid crystals and segmented mirror arrays, are damagedwhen illuminated with high-power laser light. The proposed work would investigate approaches for scaling membrane deformable mirrors to provide hig ...

  3. An Integrated Publish and Subscribe Architecture Test Harness (InPATH)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A Publish and Subscribe (P&S) architecture forms the foundation of the Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI) system, which is composed of protocols, processes, and common core functions permitting participating applications and organizations to share andexchange mission-critical information in a timely manner. The Air Force is examining various P&S standards that have the potential of forming the bas ...

  5. High Speed Timed Idiosyncratic Signatures

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    High Speed Timed Idiosyncratic Signatures Such an idiosyncratic signature will allow a publisher of software to key the program to certain computers and make moving of such software very difficult. This technology has high applicability for publishers ofanti-piracy software as well as to ensure that sensitive software or information will not be moved to another location. This allows an overall in ...

  6. Automatic Generation of Embedded Interpreters for Software Protection

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We begin with the observation that table interpretation, or embedded interpreters, is an effective technique for software reverse engineering protection. The scientific literature does not indicate any attempt to address the technical problems required toimplement table interpretation as a general automatic software protection technique. We propose an architecture that is capable of automaticall ...

  7. Quantum Image Processing Toolkit

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Moore's law states that computing performance doubles every 18 months. While this has held true for 40 years, it is widely believed that this will soon come to an end. Increases in performance coincide with decreases in scale on the computer platform. Dueto the small scale of computer components, both interference effects are starting to play a role in the development of new components. This impli ...

  8. Design of a Graphical Interface for Managing Multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the design and creation of an interface for controlling multiple UAVs in a real-time situation. Named the Uninhabited Air Vehicle Management Interface (UAVMI), it is centered on a 3-dimensional graphical representation of theoperational geographic area. The operator is able to move a 3D cursor around within this geographic volume, selecting groups, paths, and targets in 3D ...

  9. Shear Stress Sensor Using Shape Memory Films

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for a low profile, simple, accurate, localized, responsive sensor to measure shear stress in fluid flow. The unusual properties of the shape memory alloy Ni2MnGa suggest it could make a very sensitive sensor. In recent years,single-crystal films of this alloy have been grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy. Once released from their substrate, the films have exhibited shape memory beh ...

  10. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...
