  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. 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 ...

  4. 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. Novel Analytical and Experimental Methods for Evaluating Bolted Joint Repairs in Composite Structure

    SBC: Stratton Composite Solutions            Topic: AF103146

    In today"s composite aircraft structures, bolted joints are frequently subject to abuse, overloads, heat damage, or lightning strikes which can damage both the fastener and the surrounding composite material. This damage, when detected, must be repaired. However, little information currently exists to guide the maintainer in the design, analysis, or certification of the repair. SCS proposes to ...

  7. Multimode Tracking for Next Generation Over the Horizon Radar Real-Time Ionospheric Correction

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF103181

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to develop a real-time error correction processor using multimode tracking for over the horizon radar. In particular, PRA will leverage its extensive experience in propagation effects and tracking algorithms coupled with target selectivity algorithms to develop a dynamic real-time mode linking process for over the horizon radar using aircraft b ...

  8. Improved Data&Power Transmission: Conductor&Shielding

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF103204

    Carbon nanotubes form conductive composites at such low loading ratios and thus could be a key component in EMI shielding and conductors for lightweight aircraft wiring. Compared to conventional metal-based materials, electrically conducting polymer composites has attracted interest due to their light weight, resistance to corrosion, flexibility, and processing advantages. Minnesota Defense propos ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Valve Health Monitoring System

    SBC: GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY CONNECTION, INC.            Topic: AF103220

    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with academic partner, University of Tennessee-Knoxville, and valve actuator manufacturer, BAFCO, addresses valve diagnostics and prognostics by proposing a Valve Prognostic Health Monitoring System (VPHMS) that detects and identifies valve incipient failure modes and estimates valve remaining useful life from sensor data. Valve types consider ...
