  1. Distributed System for Field Detection of Stray Energy from Laser Weapons

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05313

    A number of high-energy laser weapons currently under development by and for the U.S. military will provide our armed forces with capabilities that are unmatched by conventional armaments. Laser weapons allow targets to be destroyed from remote locations without the delays associated with the transit of typical missiles and artillery shells. However, during engagement the laser radiation reflect ...

  2. Propulsion System Performance and Health Monitor

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05192

    The innovation proposed is a flight-worthy optical sensor that will monitor propulsion system performance and health characteristics, including identifying the onset of combustion instability, in air-breathing engines such as turbojets and ramjets. It is an innovation for three reasons: 1) the sensing is performed in the hot exhaust flow at the back of the engine instead of at the flame-front in t ...

  3. Multiaperture Optical Systems

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF05147

    We will develop a multi-aperture compound eye, with embedded processing, that conforms to the shape of a warhead, UAV, or other robot nose or front-end. The compound eye architecture will be an "array of arrays" structure, with individual elements comprised of low-resolution vision chips having on-chip mixed-signal processing circuitry. The compound eye structure will also include multiple process ...

  4. High Temperature Sm(Co,Fe,Cu,Zr)z/Fe-Co Nanocomposite Permanent Magnets with High Energy Density

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: AF05T024

    Air Force seeks innovative permanent magnets for high temperature application in air and space vehicles. This requires the use of novel permanent magnets with high coercivity and saturation magnetization up to 450oC with an energy product of 30 MGOe. Inframat Corporation proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating an exchange-spring coupled Sm(Co,Fe,Cu,Zr)z/Co-Fe nanocomposite permanen ...

  5. Optoelectronic control technology for Phased Arrays.

    SBC: OPEL            Topic: AF05040

    Phased arrays are critical for surveillance and tracking. Current TR modules use numerous MMIC chips, ferrite circulators and phase shifters and quasi-optical true-time-delay (TTD). A major power requirement is distribution and synchronization of the T/R function across multiple RF interfaces. Large scale integration could address the problem of interconnecting boards with GHZ RF outputs but is c ...

  6. High Frequency Optoelectronc Oscillator

    SBC: OPEL            Topic: AF05043

    Clocks and pulse sources are essential elements for radar systems. Timing control determines total system operation and the fundamental limitation for next generation sub-systems is clock jitter (phase noise). For multi GB/s systems, the clear choice is an optoelectronic oscillator in which the clock period is an optical delay. The phase noise is thereby reduced because the variability of the del ...

  7. Decision Support Technologies for Logistics Readiness Center

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF05070

    Qualtech Systems, Inc. (QSI) proposes to develop a comprehensive software environment for evaluating space system designs for mission reliability, supportability, and diagnostics (Integrated Health Management) performance. In addition to providing the capabilities to identify single points of failure and to estimate the probability of system failure as a function of the age of the system's compone ...

  8. Automated Software Tamperproofing Techniques


    The main objective of this project is to prevent the reverse engineering or anti-tampering of military software and related technology and provide an automated method to install anti-tampering technologies. Of significant concern to the military is the capture of advanced weapons. Technologies contained in the hardware can be exposed by reverse engineering the software. Reverse engineering techniq ...

  9. Malicious and Damaging Binary Code Elimination


    This project represents a major advance in the elimination of malicious and otherwise destructive code. The proposed method has the potential to be the most effective tool available to detect and eliminate all harmful code and unauthorized software activities originating from a software program. Software is an integral part of most weapons and other military systems. There is a continuously g ...
