  1. Ultra-Scalable Nonvolatile Graphene Memory

    SBC: Harper Laboratories            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: The physical scalability of Si based nonvolatile memory is problematic for the terascale integration of space memory. In particular and with regards to Flash, this problem is two-fold as device designs breakdown and photolithographic patterning approaches its limits to minimum feature size. Whereas phase-change and ferroelectric polymer devices have shown promise to scale beyond Flash ...

  2. Angle of Incidence (AOI) Measurement Capability

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF131177

    ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force seeks to advance the state-of-the-art in angle-of-incidence (AOI) sensing. A key motivation is that the lethality of certain weapon systems used against certain targets is often strongly influenced by AOI at a favorable aim point. Weapon systems that can most benefit from AOI sensing include directed energy weapons and precision guided munitions. The proposed work is ...

  3. A General Solver Framework for Radiative Heat Transfer Models in Combustion Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141084

    Modern combustion systems such as liquid rocket engines and gas turbines are characterized by high operating pressures and temperatures due to increased power-density. Thermal radiation has significant impact on both heat fluxes at the wall and on physical phenomena controlling the combustion process at these conditions. Coupling between radiation, turbulence and chemistry can have a large effect ...

  4. Triaxial Accelerometer with Low Offset and Noise (TALON)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141135

    Archangel Systems, Inc. proposes a feasibility study coined Triaxial Accelerometer with Low Offset and Noise (TALON) to meet the accelerometer needs for DoD"s next-generation IMUs in agile missile programs. DoD targets for IMU size, weight and power (SWAP) budgets are aggressive. To meet these requirements, TALON leverages prior Archangel work for DARPA"s NGIMG project. Specifically, the MEMS a ...

  5. Advanced Space Antenna for GPS

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF141243

    We propose to develop a space based radiation hardened GPS transmit antenna capable of forming spot beams to enhance the GPS signal on the ground by greater than 5 dB. It is expected that our transverse compound hybrid antenna will provide as much as 30 dB gain over a hemispherical antenna allowing enhanced signals over specific areas as large as 500 km. A tradeoff between spot size and signal g ...

  6. Fast, Anatomy and Physiology Based Computational Tool for RF-Induced Thermal Response

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT: Military and industrial personnel are often exposed to RF electromagnetic energy which can cause thermal and electrokinetic biological effects. To understand these effects, AFRL is using computational electromagnetic tools to predict RF energy deposition and thermal effects in humans. Unfortunately, high resolution thermal simulations are computationally very expensive. The goal of this ...

  7. High Fidelity Heralded On Demand Single Photon Source

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF141009

    ABSTRACT: To provide reliably secure communications, development of practical quantum optical devices for ground-to-space quantum key distribution is a necessity. The overall goal of this Air Force effort is to develop and deliver a single photon source based on heralding to indicate when a photon has been generated. The proposed device will produce single photons on demand with high efficiency ...

  8. Radiation Hardened Cache Memory

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF141096

    ABSTRACT: This effort will evaluate radiation hardened cache memory architectures with respect to future device parameter requirements; identify potential Air Force PNT systems, DoD, and commercial aerospace application requirements; select a suitable RH cache architecture to meet anticipated memory size, performance, and radiation requirements; and initiate the design of an advanced RH cache whi ...

  9. High-efficiency, Radiation-hardened GaN HEMT based L-band Space Power Amplifier

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141125

    ABSTRACT: An important objective for the Air Force is to reduce the operational costs of GPS satellite systems via higher efficiency electronics, such as power amplifiers. In this project, CFDRC, in collaboration with Vanderbilt University/ISDE and a leading GaN device manufacturer, propose a complementary experimental and modeling-based approach to develop a Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) fo ...

  10. High Performance Gelled DACS for Small Missiles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141137

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is considering the incorporation of a small, lightweight divert and attitude control system (DACS) into current and future air-to-air missile platforms. This will increase the agility of the missile and allow for interception of faster, or more maneuverable targets. CFDRC believes that a small DACS employing gelled MON25/MMH as the propellants and utilizing an innovative ...
