  1. Microwave Mapping-Transparency Sensor System

    SBC: COMPASS TECHNOLOGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF121C123

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft transparency systems such as canopies incorporate conductive layers that provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding. These conductive layers require inspection during manufacturing and throughout the life of the aircraft to ensure proper electrical performance is achieved and maintained. Current manufacturing inspections are conducted manually, are time consuming, and ...

  4. High-Speed Weapon Radomes

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF121092

    ABSTRACT:As more and more advanced hypersonic weapons are developed, vehicle temperatures are expected to near 1250K (977C); as flight times increase, these temperatures are expected to saturate the entire vehicle.Typically, forward-looking RF and IR sensors are collocated in the same protective radome, which degrades the performance of both systems.FIRST RF proposes a significantly different appr ...

  5. Flexible CPU-GPU computational plasma applications with particles and fluids

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: SB143002

    Theoretical computing speeds have increased dramatically in the last decade with chip advances, including Graphics Processor Units (GPUs).In practice, however, these gains have not been realized, largely due to the accompanying high development costs due to the need for multiple code bases to take advantage of the various chips and their variants.The proposed project addresses these issues from bo ...

  6. High Performance Microminiature Free Space Shutter for CAMS

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: SB142005

    ColdQuanta proposes the development, fabrication, testing and demonstration of a free-space microshutter based on MEMS technology. The microshutter head will provide extinction ratios exceeding 70 dB and shutter transition times below 10 us, and it will be smaller than any other free space shutter technology currently available. The proposed shutter leverages prior experience with the successful d ...
