  1. High Performance, Ultra Low Power SPA-1 ASIC for Space Plug-and-Play Avionics

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    ABSTRACT: The Space Plug-and-play Avionics (SPA) initiative is designed to improve the ability of the US military to respond to rapidly changing operational needs by creating, integrating, and launching a new spacecraft in less than one week. This would provide major benefits to war fighters on the ground, in the sky, and at sea. SPA-1 ASICs using I2C as the transport interface will likely be t ...

  2. Precise fabrication of photonic integrated systems using low cost nanoimprint process

    SBC: Sinoora Inc.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this STTR proposal, we propose to develop a cost-effective and high-fidelity nanoimprint process for the fabrication of integrated photonics devices. VLSI photonics applications require a hig-level of control on device-to-device uniformity. Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) holds promise to overcome the current technological challenges in lithography while being cost effective at the same time. One ...

  3. Real-Time Health Monitoring for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Polymer Aging Concepts Inc            Topic: AF103214

    ABSTRACT: A Health Monitoring Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) uses actual polymeric components of propellant in a tiny new sensor called AgeAlert. These sensors will provide real-time data corresponding to aging of the propellant. The sensors are mounted external to the propellant and automatically track degradation passively without electrical power until interrogated. They are extremely ...

  4. Massively Parallel High Temperature Probe System for Wafer-level Reliability Testing

    SBC: Celadon Systems Inc.            Topic: 910021R

    Historical methods of reliability assessment are less and less effective as device sizes shrink. Larger sample sizes and longer duration tests are increasingly needed. At the same time, efforts to continue scaling semiconductors to ever smaller geometries is leading to an explosion of new device structures, materials and processes. The cost of testing these innovations is becoming a major barrier ...

  5. Smart Miniaturized Power Supply

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: AF103232

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I proposal will meet the Air Force requirements for smart scalable miniaturized batteries with high energy density, safety, and reliability. The battery design allows for energy densities in excess of 800 Wh/L and solid state cells are capable of extremely high cycle life, and extended operating temperature range. The lithium cell proposed is fabricated using low cost produc ...

  6. The Holographic Sidelobe Canceller: Holographic Radar Processing for Interference Mitigation

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT29

    ABSTRACT: Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are teamed to propose an innovative holographic receiver and processing technology for enhanced radar electronic protection. PRA/GTRI will investigate applying holographic processing to Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Electronically Scanned Arrays (ESAs) in order to mitigate interference such ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Context Aware Scalable Dynamic Network (CASDN)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF103070

    ABSTRACT: Current air, ground and space networks are very dynamic with large-scale mobility needing human in-the-loop configuration to adapt to unforeseen situations. Humans and current automated systems cannot reconfigure consistently or fast enough. This leads to network performance not meeting mission needs. Airborne, space and ground networks are very dynamic, complex, and hard for the cur ...

  9. Hybrid Autonomous Router for Tactical (HART) Networks

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: OSD10AN2

    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 ...

  10. Province

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: OSD10AN3

    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. ...
