  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: Providing electrical power for long duration hypersonic flight is a technology that is required to bring about this revolutionary mode of transport. Whether for weapons delivery or for space access, the long duration missions anticipated require a novel approach to the generation of electrical power during flight. Scramjets contain no rotating shafts from which typical generators or mec ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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. ...

  8. Valve Dynamics Simulation

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: AF093186

    A large portion of the non-recurring cost of throttling type valves is associated with the effort to evaluate the dynamics of the flow through the valve. Not only do these flow dynamics affect the structural and mechanical design of the valve, they have been shown to have an effect on the combustion stability of the rocket engine. Without a means to evaluate the valve dynamics, valve developers ...

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

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF103005

    The United States Air Force (USAF) operates one of the world"s largest fleets with an average age approaching 26 years. As the USAF transport fleet continues to age, costs of inspections, structural repairs, and component replacements will continue increasing. Given this large number of aircraft approaching their life limit, USAF engineers are considering alternative strategies for its airframe fl ...

  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 ...
