  1. Surface Deformation Measurements Using Light Modulation Imaging

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic vehicles will require structures that can withstand highly transient flows and complex loadings throughout the flight trajectory. Shock boundary-layer interaction can excite panels locally and lead to structural failures. Non-contacting measurement technologies are needed to characterize the effect of flow transients (due to pressure and temperature fluctuations) on the struct ...

  2. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to extend MZAs WaveTrain wave-optics sensor simulation framework to model EO/IR sensors operating on hypersonic aircraft. Following the methods we have developed for aero-optical imaging through subsonic, transonic, and supersonic flows, existing WaveTrain libraries will be expanded to include hypersonic flow, shocks, thermal effec ...

  3. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: The Sonalysts Team proposes to develop a solution to establish secure cross enclave network interfaces that facilitate the flow of data between different levels of classification while improving and ensuring both security and data integrity. We will develop a prototype software application that will complement Cross-Domain Solution (CDS) installations by standardizing configuration and ...

  4. Protection of DoD Satellite Communications Against RF Interferences and Personal Mobile Telecommunications

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF14AT17

    ABSTRACT: The United States relies heavily on force multiplying, space-based navigation, communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. These satellites populate all orbital regimes including low-earth orbit (LEO), medium earth orbit (MEO) and geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO) and frequently require complex ground station network support requirements. Miltary ...

  5. Tool to Predict High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Mobile Targets

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF15AT05

    ABSTRACT: XL Scientific LLC will leverage over a half a century of High Power Microwave (HPM) Effects Test and Modeling experience to develop an integrated DREAM2 toolkit that models the vulnerability and susceptibility of electronic systems, subsystems and components to directed energy (DE) HPM weapons. The analysis toolkit developed will center on three essential modules, critical in a full asse ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: Printed Performance Innovations            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: Material extrusion 3D printing is an Additive Manufacturing method which utilizes a polymeric monofilanment as a feedstock in the fabrication of 3D objects. The relative simplicity compared to other AM technologies makes it an attractive manufacturing tool, however, characteristics inherent to this 3D printing method (namely air gaps between print rasters) makes it undesirable for the 3D ...

  7. 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.

  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 ...
