  1. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  2. High-Power Millimeter-Wave Micro-Sources for Communications & Radar Dominance

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF06T022

    The proposed effort is to evaluate the feasibility of a W-band sheet-beam vacuum electronic device that can provide up to 1 kW of peak RF power at a minimum efficiency of 20%. Key elements of this effort are on the generation and transport of the sheet beam and its interaction with the RF circuit. The potential of employing a depressed collector to improve overall efficiency will also be investiga ...

  3. Chemical Kinetics Modeling Tools for Hydrocarbon Scramjet Propulsion System Design

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: OSD05T002

    One of the difficulties in reactive flow simulation is the development of reduced models that are capable of predicting the non-equilibrium processes such as ignition and blow-out. Hydrocarbon fuels become viable alternatives to hydrogen at Mach numbers below 10, because of greater fuel densities and endothermic cooling capabilities. However, hydrocarbon fuels show difficulties for flame holding ...

  4. Deposition of Amorphous Aluminum Alloys as a Replacement for Aluminum Cladding

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T023

    The protective properties of the oxide films that form on aluminum alloys can break down locally and allow extensive corrosion. An amorphous alloy system recently developed at the University of Virginia is promising as an environmentally compliant metal cladding. We propose a new method for converting alloy powder into coatings. This technique does not require large standoffs and has very high hea ...

  5. Deobfuscating tools for the validation and verification of tamper-proofed software

    SBC: HBGary, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC5

    Tamper-proofed software and malicious binaries, commonly referred to as “malware”, often share similar technological features. Both good and bad guys wish to hinder static and dynamic reverse engineering of their software programs to thwart adversaries from gaining program understanding and to prevent the observation of code behavior. HBGary proposes the Virtual Machine for Analysis (VMA), a ...

  6. Kernel-mode Software Protection Vulnerability Assessment and Rootkit Reverse Engineering Tool Development

    SBC: HBGary, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC4

    Software protections mechanisms are a means for preventing piracy, alteration, and reverse engineering of critical national security software and data. Kernel-mode software protection techniques utilize, in-part, rootkit-like methods that provide anti-piracy and anti-reverse engineering protection to critical software applications. The fundamental difficulty associated with rootkits and software ...

  7. Heterodyne Correlation Random Noise Radar for Through Wall and Building Interior Imaging

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF06T024

    Recent terrorist activities and law-enforcement situations involving hostage situations underscore the need for effective through-the-wall surveillance (TWS). Current building interior imaging systems are based on short-pulse waveforms, which are easily recognizable by the intelligent adversary who may employ countermeasures to confound detection. We propose a coherent continuous-wave ultrawideban ...

  8. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: Qynergy Corporation            Topic: MDA05T005

    Qynergy Corporation proposes to develop a unique power system for space targets for RADAR calibration and test of advanced discrimination technologies and concepts. There is a need for well-characterized cooperative space targets that can decrease reliance on expensive BMDS integrated flight tests. The space target system would consist of at least 2 objects: a cone of approximately 1-m diameter, ...

  9. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...

  10. Nanodielectrics Dielectrics for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: AF06T002

    Future power conditioning, control electronics and directed energy weapons will require significant energy storage for a wide range of power applications. Systems will depend on capacitors to deliver high current and high voltage under repetition. In order to find practical embodiment on mobile platforms, significant advances in compact power sources will be required. In response this need, TP ...
