  1. RAMSES

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF131204

    ABSTRACT: The floor of an ALC is like a well-orchestrated dance. However, when an unexpected failure occurs, it can introduce significant delays in not only the specific aircraft"s maintenance, but of the entire network of systems. 21st Century Systems, Inc. (21CSi) is in the position to answer this challenge with a concept called Reactive Aircraft Maintenance System via Evolutionary Scheduling ( ...

  2. Cryogenic-Vacuum Compatible Infrared Scene Projection System (CVC IRSP) Based on the Digital Micromirror Device

    SBC: OPTICAL SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF083255

    ABSTRACT: This document presents Optical Sciences Corporation's SBIR technology transition proposal to complete development of an advanced Cryogenic-Vacuum Compatible Infrared Scene Projector (CVC IRSP) for Wide Field-of-View (WFOV) space sensor testing and to integrate the CVC IRSP into a government owned space simulation chamber. The CVC IRSP will be capable of projecting complex scenes w ...

  3. Ultra-Scalable Nonvolatile Graphene Memory

    SBC: Harper Laboratories            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT:Nonvolatile memory (NVM) technologies are a critical component of modern satellites.These NVM chipsets perform tasks ranging from storing mission-critical boot code to large multi-gigabyte mission data recorders.This requirement for high-density NVM has shifted focus on to commercial CMOS FLASH.FLASH technologies are capable of high-density devices, compared to resistive or phase-change t ...

  4. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  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 batt ...

  6. Radiation Hardened Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF151089

    ABSTRACT:There is a need for a moderate resolution, high speed, radiation hardened (RH) Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) to support new satellite developments. Scientic proposes to develop a high speed, radiation-hardened DAC to be produced on-shore in a trusted semiconductor foundry to meet the data conversion needs of the US Air Force (AF) and other military and aerospace system developers. To ...

  7. Novel Penetrator Cases for Explosive and Fuze Survivability

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF151102

    ABSTRACT:As weapon velocities increase significantly in the coming years, driven by reduced response times and by the strength of materials in target structures, the already-significant shock loads on explosive payloads and fuze components will be greatly exacerbated. Given that the integrity of the payload and fuze components is critical to proper weapon functioning, it is imperative that solutio ...

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

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...

  9. Advanced Experimental Design and Modeling and Simulation for Testing Large Format Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Nou Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF151173

    ABSTRACT:nou Systems proposes an innovative analysis and test methodology for testing space-based high-resolution wide field-of-view (WFOV) focal plane arrays (FPAs). Current space sensor test facilities are incapable of fully testing state-of-the-art high-resolution WFOV sensors without infrastructure modifications. The test methodology described in this proposal focuses on testing only a subset ...

  10. Infrared Target Collection System (ITCS)

    SBC: North Star Systems Inc            Topic: AF151178

    ABSTRACT:The proposed system design provides a capability to collect target signatures faster, and at more aspect angles from a locus of points on a hemisphere centered on the target. State of the art communications channels are used to transmit radiometric infrared data to remote data recorders. Payload positioning may be done by manual or pre-programmed control with precision GPS and inertial se ...
