  1. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines


    ABSTRACT: The United States Air Force and the Department of Defense are investigating synthesis, scale-up and production of novel energetic materials including high energy density compounds and fuels. Five-membered heterocyclic rings containing nitro groups have demonstrated great potential as energetic materials. Synthetic and engineering challenges are impeding scientists from safely producing ...

  2. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  3. VLSI CMOS-memristor Building-block for Future Autonomous Air Platforms

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: In this project, Orora Design Technologies, Inc. is teaming up with researchers from the University at Albany and the University of Washington to develop techniques to design, simulate and fabricate CMOS-memristor CMOL crossnet building blocks and neuromorphic processors. Phase I objective is to simulate and demonstrate autonomous computing building cell blocks with power consumption of ...

  4. Integrated High-Complexity Systems in Silicon Photonics

    SBC: Portage Bay Photonics            Topic: AF10BT34

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and validate (in phase I) detailed designs for highly scaled silicon photonic-electronic chips for applications relevant to the DOD in high-bandwidth data communication. This effort will be closely coordinated with the OPSIS (Optoelectronic Systems Integration in Silicon) project being led at the University of Washington, an effort to create an open foundry process ...

  5. Hybrid Autonomous Router for Tactical (HART) Networks


    The DoD has identified the need for airborne platforms from the various services to be integrated into the Global Information Grid (GIG). The current state of the practice for connecting airborne platforms to the GIG has four major limitations, i.e., (1) inability to adapt dynamically to topology changes in the network; (2) need for excessive manual configuration; (3) lack of scalalability with ne ...

  6. Province


    As the DoD continues to"drawdown"the number of active duty personnel, there are a limited number of network operators to examine network status data and configure the large number of network devices present in any theater of operation. However, the ever increasing complexity of missions requires optimal network operation to provide mission assurance; this drives the need to maximize automation. ...

  7. Low Cost Valve Technology

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF093186

    The Air Force needs highly reliable, reusable, low-cost engine valves for reusable liquid rocket booster engines. We propose to develop a Frictionless Ball Valve (FBV) to meet Air Force needs. Our FBV uses friction-free hydrostatic bearings to maintain tight clearance seals and eliminate wear, which makes our FBV highly reliable and reusable. The friction-free operation reduces requirements for ...

  8. Modeling and Simulation of Hybrid Materials/Structures for Sustainment Applications

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF103005

    A software tool for residual strength and life prediction of advanced hybrid structures will be developed by enhancing and integrating an existing mesh independent 3D X-FEM solid element with a partially bonded cohesive interface element in Abaqus. The tool will be able to model arbitrary location, size of damage, and geometric configuration of fiber metal laminates with the coexistence of metal l ...

  9. Pilot Wrist Computer System (PWCS)

    SBC: Voicelever, Inc            Topic: AF103026

    ABSTRACT: Extremely small, portable, lightweight, and ruggedized PC with open standards, secure operation and networking - not handheld - but worn and operated by touch, and/or hands free by voice command and speech response. Designed for personnel on the move. Ready and immediate access to a high resolution, visual display on the wrist/forearm. Software, hardware, and enclosures support an exte ...

  10. Tentacle: Multi-Camera Immersive Surveillance System

    SBC: Primordial, Inc.            Topic: AF103032

    ABSTRACT: Primordial, Panoptic, and intuVision propose the development of Tentaclea multi-camera immersive surveillance system that synthesizes information from hundreds of video streams into an intuitive 3D representation. Team Primordial will start with our existing state-of-the-art baseline componentsPanoptic C-Thru, intuVision Panoptes, and intuVision Video Recallwhich already fully meet 6 a ...
