  2. Improving the Life Expectancy of High Voltage Components Using Nanocomposite Surface Solutions

    SBC: Pneumaticoat Technologies Llc            Topic: N14AT025

    Moisture buildup on high voltage antenna components can cause electrical shorts that damage system parts and produce communication noise. Not only are significant costs incurred repairing and replacing damaged components, but critical operations communications can be disrupted by these electrical discharges. This STTR proposal will apply hydrophobic and superhydrophobic coatings to antenna compone ...

  3. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: FirstPass Engineering PC            Topic: N12AT013

    Our initial, practical and potentially commercial approach, based upon years of basic and applied research in chaotic computation, was developed in Phase I of our project. Following upon phase I of the STTR project we propose, in Phase II, to engineer, synthesize, and exploit the rich, intrinsic dynamics of nonlinear and chaotic circuits and systems to implement reconfigurable, secure and noise re ...

  4. Versatile and Robust Three-Dimensional Software for Multi-Fluid Plasma Modeling

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF11BT08

    ABSTRACT: In this STTR Tech-X corporation in partnership with the University of Washington will improve a commercial plasma modeling tool, Nautilus, for simulating high-temperature multi-fluid plasmas for problems such as the field reversed configuration, dense plasma focus and the plasma opening switch. Semi-implicit algorithms will be implemented in Nautilus so that the speed of light and elec ...

  5. Satellite Drag Physical Model Module for a Near Real Time Operation Test Bed

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF11BT29

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit predictions in LEO. The goal of this Phase II project is to develop a satellite drag specification capability ...

  6. Cost Effective Solar Array based on High Efficiency Thin-Film Technology

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF13AT06

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I effort will involve the development of an ultra low cost, high specific power, modular and flexible solar array module using currently available thin-film solar cells, innovative interconnects, and flexible encapsulation. The high efficiency thin-film solar cells will enable high specific power and flexibility in the module. The interconnect scheme and encapsulation will a ...

  7. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  8. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...
