  1. Micromachined Fused Silica Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: We propose to fabricate a high performance signal and pump combiner for high-power fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. We will use advanced glass micromachining processes that will alleviate the fabrication challenges associated with either tapered fused fiber couplers or side-pumped fused coupler. A central robust fused silica structure will be micromachined. The pumps and signal fib ...

  2. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expected to ...

  4. Enabling Flexible Materials, Devices and Processes for Defense

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT:Emergence and feasibility for flexible body-worn electronics and particularly medical patches requires high performance electronics capability.The problem is that these new technologies must have flexible and conformal physical formats and conventional electronic components are not in any way flexible. In the CLAS Phase I program, a new flexible high-performance manufacturing and material ...

  5. Efficient Computational Tool for RF-Induced Thermal Response

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT: The ThermoReg thermal model was developed to solve for tissue temperatures resulting from radio frequency (RF) heating using a voxel-based, heterogeneous tissue description of the human body. Although ThermoReg has been parallelized to run on high-performance computer clusters, the time-dependent nature of a thermal solution (especially for tissue temperatures resulting from high-power, ...

  6. Operator Interface for Flexible Control of Automated Sensor Functions

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF141027

    ABSTRACT: In the DoD vision for unmanned systems, there is the demand for a single operator to manage multiple ISR assets, including UAV platforms and their sensor systems. Some research has been conducted in supervisory control and delegation interfaces for unmanned systems, but these have focused on platform mobility rather than sensor systems. Furthermore, these interfaces have focused on high ...

  8. Adaptive, Immersive Training to Counter Deception and Denial Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) for C4ISR Networks

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF141031

    ABSTRACT: Cyber warfare presents a persistent and evolving threat to military and civilian information systems. Would-be cyber attackers are constantly changing their attack vectors to take advantage of security lapses by human resources and the latest vulnerabilities in information technology. To train the warfighter to combat this threat Soar Technology in partnership with KAB Laboratories and ...

  9. Attack Amelioration via Layered Temporal Virtualizaton ("Primer")

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF141038

    ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of a computing appliance which uses Temporal Virtualization to help ameliorate the effects of malicious software activity. Temporal Virtualization involves the manipulation of virtual time in Type-2 (software) virtual clients in a way that frustrates an adversary"s attempts to corrupt or break out of virtualization. An attack model is assume ...

  10. Dynamic Airborne Mission Communication System (DYNAMICS)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF141046

    ABSTRACT: Current Air Force mission planning systems require that users manually enter flight paths. For the emerging class of airborne communications platforms this is sub-optimal. The mission of these platforms is to extend communications ranges and enable enhanced (particularly IP-based) connectivity for other mission elements. This calls for a new type of planning system. Rather than having e ...
