  1. Handheld Dismount Kit for Persistent, Precision Navigation in GPS-challenged Environments for Military Operations

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF153002

    ABSTRACT:The warfighter needs an accurate and reliable source of Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) when GPS is not available. Fortunately, technical advances in navigation sensors and algorithms can reduce dependence on the venerable, yet vulnerable, GPS system. Inertial sensors are becoming increasingly smaller and more accurate. Low cost, powerful embedded computing platforms enable real ti ...

  4. Detection of Hostile Fire from the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA)

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT:Recent technical demonstrations in hostile fire sensing and classification have highlighted the use of costly cryogenically-cooled electro-optical sensors.While capable, these types of sensors come with a higher initial purchase price as well as high life cycle costs per platform.This activity will implement a broad area hostile fire sensing architecture that uses lower cost discrete sens ...

  5. Ephemeral Security Overlay for GPS

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF151078

    ABSTRACT: In this work, an ephemeral security technique for keying military GPS receivers will be developed. This work will not modify the existing GPS cryptographic structure, but rather develop an overlay for providing keying information to a receiver in a manner that makes all security information ephemeral, eliminating the permanent storage of CPI within the receiver. Existing and emerging bat ...

  6. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors


    Infrared devices fabricated using III-V strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials have many advantages over present state-of-the-art HgCdTe detectors, e.g., cost, manufacturability, operability, and theoretically lower Auger generation rates. However, due to the presence of inherent growth related defects the SLS materials have not achieved full potential. While growth improvements are anticipat ...

  7. Integrated Software to Predict Material Degradation in Special Technology Coatings

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF151118

    The Air Force faces challenges related to selecting, maintaining and repairing coatings that protect and enhance the performance of critical components in gas turbine engines. Coatings must maintain performance despite experiencing several degrading mechanical, thermal and chemical impacts.In Phase I, CFDRC demonstrated feasibility of a physics-based model to compute damage progression under stres ...

  8. Influence of Long-range Ionospheric and Atmospheric Effects on Surveillance and Communication Systems

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151154

    Abstract: Electromagnetic signals used in communications and sensor systems can be seriously impacted after propagation through a region of the atmosphere or ionosphere disturbed by turbulence.This work will develop new physics-based technology that calculates EM propagation from HF to laser frequencies, including the effects of turbulence with long correlation length in the direction of propagati ...

  9. Printed Skin (pSKIN) for Aircraft Sensing and Testing

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: AF14AT01


    STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
  10. High Resolution Simulation of Liquid Jet Ejection and Aerosolization for Chemical/Biological Defense

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High resolution modeling of the aerosolization process for relatively large liquid jets is needed to quantify the dispersion of hazardous chemical or biological agents from damaged/punctured containers. A second application is the prediction of thedistribution of neutralization agents injected into clouds of hazardous chemical or biological agents. A high fidelity model is needed to provide accura ...
