  1. 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 ...

  2. LeanTec: Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Physical Unclonable Functions

    SBC: LEANICS CORP.            Topic: OSD10A02

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a novel field programmable gate array (FPGA) based physical unclonable function (PUF) with higher entropy than current implementations, the feasibility of creating PUF based RNGs, and PUF based authentication algorithms. These PUFs will be used to ensure intellectual property (IP) is protected, to prevent tampering with ...

  4. High Energy Density and High Power Density Thermal Energy Storage

    SBC: Rocky Research            Topic: AF103163

    Thermal energy storage for load smoothing can be beneficial in applications having large transient heat load compared to steady-state heat rejection. Laser weapons and high-power microwave generators are examples where TES can help. Ammoniated complex compound systems can provide heat absorption due to exothermic dissociation of the complex compound. Very high energy density and power density T ...

  5. 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 ...

  8. Degassing of Nanostructured Composite Powders Utilizing Unique, Low-Cost Heating Method

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: A11010

    Applied Colloids proposes the use of a unique heating method to degass cryomilled powders for use in Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs). This method is low-cost and scaleable to production quantities. Phase I of this program will degass nanostructured aluminum-boron carbide powders at the rate of 20 pounds per eight hours. Cryomilled powders will be supplied by Bepex International, a company famili ...

  9. 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 ...
