  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Wide-Field-of-View (WFOV) Multiwaveband Multimode Seeker Technology

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131101

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of precision guided munitions (PGM) need to have highly capable and multi modal sensors that offer the potential for both autonomous as well as man-in-the-loop target designation, ideally in the same munition with multiple modes accessible and switchable on demand within a single fly out. Such a sensor would offer a high precision strike, thus reducing the size of t ...

  7. Re-evaluation of Oil Analysis Program

    SBC: Gastops Inc.            Topic: AF121212

    ABSTRACT: It is a goal of the United States Air Force (USAF) to maintain its fleet of aircraft in a maximum state of readiness. The use of oil analysis as a means of continuous surveillance of the state of these fleets is a well-established practice which has been employed by the USAF and supported by their major equipment suppliers for decades. The United States Air Force has identified a need ...

  8. Flex Weapon Adaptive Flight Software in Plug and Play Environment

    SBC: CUMMINGS AEROSPACE, INC.            Topic: AF141142

    ABSTRACT: Cummings Aerospace proposes to define a plug-n-play and adaptive flight software for use on modular weapons systems. Modular weapons systems pose unique challenges to the plug-n-play environment including high reliability, high coupled hardware and software, and non-standard component elements. These factors all influence the flight software, which must be general enough to support mu ...

  9. Automated aircraft inlet coating

    SBC: AEROBOTIX, INC            Topic: AF131114

    ABSTRACT:Aerobotix is proposing to build and demonstrate a robotic coating system that is capable of spraying the entire interior of the F-22 inlet duct on an assembled aircraft.Aerobotix will utilize innovative designs for building a robotic end of arm tool, rail, and fluid delivery system to demonstrate how the coating can be applied to the required design thicknesses.BENEFITS: This automated co ...

  10. 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 ...
