  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. Enabling Automated Real-Time AFSCN Scheduling- Ace Premier Intelligent Distributed Scheduler (AceIDS)

    SBC: Braxton Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131069

    ABSTRACT:Braxtons primary goal is to leverage our Phase I prototyping and continue research to evolve the ACE Premier Intelligent Distributed Scheduler (AceIDS) products capability to automatically optimize AFSCN and non-AFSCN (commercial provisioning) resource allocation. We fuse electronically-generated routine and real-time priority access requests with real-time space and ground resource statu ...

  6. GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112065

    ABSTRACT:Ionospheric scintillation and TEC are required by the IORD. We propose a GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA) that makes measurements of Ionospheric scintillation and TEC. GAMMA will be remotely deployable, such as on an ocean buoy or in a battlefield. It will send data to the user via the Iridium satellite network in near real-time. GAMMA will make use of ASTRAs existing Connected Autono ...

  7. Thermal Interface Material Maturation Program for Air Force Power Electronics Applications

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT22

    ABSTRACT: Thermal interface materials (TIMs) constitute an essential part of thermal management which is quickly becoming the limiting factor in high power, high functional density, and increasingly small-sized electronics for future U.S. Air Force (AF) platforms. TIMs aim to ensure a continuous thermal conductivity path between the heat source and heat sink/dissipater, thus permitting the effici ...

  8. Thermal Isolation Technology for Large-Format Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    ABSTRACT:Large format lithium-ion batteries with ineffective cell isolation are potentially hazardous when exposed to conditions such as crush, overcharge, discharge, high temperature and internal short circuit. The recent Boeing incidents and similar incidents in the automotive industry underscore the importance of current research into the root causes and safety hazards associated with such batt ...
