  2. Advanced Pressure Sensitive Adhesive for Low Observable Outer Mold Line Repair (1001-604)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF093114

    In this Phase II program Triton Systems will develop and optimize a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) system to meet the Air Force requirements for adhesion in the 2 8 pli range across a temperature range of -65degreesF to +250degreesF. In addition the PSA will be resistant to a variety of aircraft fluids including JP-8, oils, and de-icing fluids. Production of the PSA will be scaled-up to be p ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High Speed and High Sensitivity Quadrant Photodetector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 912085R

    To further advance the characterization and utility of microcantilevers, next generation optical detectors with higher frequency response, improved displacement resolution and lower noise for weak signal detection are needed. Consequently, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a turnkey optical detector module for use in characterizing the displacement and resonant frequencies of m ...

  5. Video Analysis Using Perceptual Organization and Machine Learning

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF05309

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop, demonstrate, and implement at EAFB the EVASE:"Extensible Video Analysis of Symbology Events"Matlab toolkit. This system is based on the premise that it will learn symbology events during training by an expert operator, and then autonomously detect this symbology in long video sequences, resulting in a list of key events to assist the operator in f ...

  6. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  7. CONTROLLED EMITTANCE MATERIAL FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SKIN COATINGS FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION REQUIRE MORE THAN SIMPLE EMISSIVITY CONTROL. CONTROL OF THE DIRECTIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF EMITTED/REFLECTED RADIATION AND ACTIVE HEATING OR COOLING ARE ALSO NECESSARY. THE RADIANCE FROM THE OBJECT NEEDS TO APPROXIMATE THE RADIANCE FROM THE BACKGROUND OVER A BROAD RANGE OF VIEWING ANGLES. THIS REQUIRES A COMPLICATED BIDIRECTIONAL REFLECTANCE DISTRIBUTION FUN ...

  8. MICROWAVE ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTER USING PARALLEL OPTICAL SAMPLING

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE AN OPTICAL ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTER FOR MICROWAVE ANALOG SIGNALS WHICH UTILIZES A SINGLE ELECTROOPTIC BROADBAND VELOCITY MATCHED TRAVELLING WAVE MODULATOR BUT WITH MULTIPLE PULSED OPTICAL BEAMS TO SAMPLE THE SIGNAL AND MULTIPLE STANDARD ELECTRONIC A/D'S TO ACCOMPLISH THE CONVERSION IN PARALLEL. THE DIGITAL OUTPUT WORDS APPEAR ON MULTIPLE SETS OF LINES APPROPRIATE FOR A ...

  9. REENTRY VEHICLE BODY SIGNATURE SIMULATION IN THE ULTRAVIOLET TO INFRARED SPECTRUM

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD PROVIDE THE AIR FORCE BALLISTIC SYSTEMS DIVISION (BSD) WITH AN ENGINEERING LEVEL SIGNATURE MODELING CAPABILITY FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF REENTRY VEHICLES (RVS) DURING THE MIDCOURSE PHASE. THE PRESENT AERODYNE RESEARCH, INC. (ARI) SPIRITS SIGNATURE MODEL OFFERS THE BASSIS FOR THE MODELING CAPABILITY IN THE ULTRAVIOLET (UV) THROUGH THE INFRARED (IR) SPECTRUM. THE SPIRITS MODEL ...

  10. AN INVESTIGATION OF MATERIALS AND AUTOMATED PRODUCTION METHODS FOR SMART STRUCTURES

    SBC: American Composite Technology            Topic: N/A

    MANY POTENTIAL SPACE SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF MAINTAINING EXTREMELY TIGHT TOLERANCES ON DIMENSIONS AND VIBRATIONS. ONE APPROACH TO ACHIEVING THE NECESSARY TOLERANCES IS TO EMPLOY TRUSSES MADE USING SMART STRUCTURES. A SMART STRUCTURE IS ONE IN WHICH THE CONTROL, SENSING AND ACTUATION FUNCTIONS ARE INTEGRATED INTO THE MATERIAL WHICH MAKES UP THE INDIVIDUAL TRUSS ELEMENTS. PROPERLY ...
