  1. Intelligent Icons for Meta-information Adaptive Presentation (12MAP)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T031

    Modern warfare is intensely information centric with vast amounts of information transmitted around the battlespace. Within this environment, it is critical to provide predictive and timely intelligence in planning and execution of operations. A tool is necessary to provide direction of ISR in the tasks of collection, exploitation, analysis, and dissemination. The tool resulting from this research ...

  2. Reversibly Cross-linked Polymers for Self-Healing Joints and Composites

    SBC: Sensormetrix, INC            Topic: AF06T025

    SensorMetrix proposes to develop innovative self-healing polymers for integration into fibrous composites and adhesive joints. These polymers heal damage in the form of cracks (macro- through nanoscale) at the molecular level through a novel reversible covalent bond. Polymer composites are notorious for their tendency to microcrack in the matrix regions due to thermal cycling , fatigue loading a ...

  3. Instrumentation and Process Development for the Production of Orientation-Patterned GaAs (OP-GaAs)

    SBC: SUNVOLT NANOSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06T010

    Sunvolt Nanosystems, Inc. and Stanford University propose to develop methods to enable commercial supply of high quality, periodically oriented GaAs and other III-IV semiconductor materials. To do this, we will combine our expertise in materials research, production equipment, and process development. We will employ a soon-to-be delivered state of the art HVPE system at the Stanford University C ...

  4. Reduced Nonlinearity Superconducting Thin Films for Transmit and Receive Applications


    Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI) has deployed more than 5,800 high-performance RF filter systems incorporating high-temperature superconducting (HTS) thin films. The deposition method of reactive coevaporation (RCE) used to produce these HTS films in high volume has also allowed the optimization of their RF properties to the point at which their deleterious nonlinearities have been reduced t ...

  5. Language Enabled Raster Imagery Exploitation (LERIX)

    SBC: MILCORD LLC            Topic: AF06T004

    Raster Maps, which represent a significant portion of our imagery assets library, have limited intelligence value in their native raster form. To unlock their value, these raster maps must undergo a complex transformation process that extracts metadata about the geo-coordinates, georegisters the scene, and extracts the texture information (features, roads, rivers) and text labels of features and l ...

  6. High-Power THz Generation from Yb-doped Lasers

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: AF07T035

    Currently, there is great interest in the development of instrumentation and techniques for the generation, detection and analysis of THz frequency (i.e. millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength) electromagnetic radiation. Higher-power sources would enable longer stand-off distances, greater depth penetration, and shorter integration times. We propose to develop a high power time-domain (TD) THz s ...

  7. Integrated Fusion and Routing System (IFRS) for UAV ISR

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T021

    As the quantity of available ISR sensor platforms increases, efficient cooperative routing of ISR assets for successful data collection becomes more difficult to coordinate. Additionally, the volume of information collected precludes comprehensive and timely human analysis. Automated routing algorithms and multi-source data fusion technologies are necessary to achieve decision superiority by explo ...

  8. An Extensible and Scalable Framework for Formal Modeling, Analysis, and Development of Distributed Systems

    SBC: VEROMODO, INC.            Topic: AF07T019

    This STTR Phase I project has the goal of substantially advancing the state of the art in constructing software for complex distributed systems, including Internet communication protocols; protocols for communication and computation in mobile ad hoc networks; robot and transportation control systems; and security protocols. The proposed multi-pronged approach includes defining formal languages tha ...

  9. Stability Models for Augmentor Design Tools and Technology Assessment

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06T033

    We are proposing a joint experimental/modeling and computational study to develop stability models for CFD codes to design advanced augmentors. Experiments will be conducted at the Research Institution to address various issues related to augmentor stability under vitiated conditions. A stream of vitiated air will be established within an existing vertical wind tunnel. Fuel jets in crossflow and b ...

  10. Nano-scale Optical Components

    SBC: WIDE NET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06T006

    The ability to create structures with nanometer-scale features provides a rich design space for optical devices and materials. One class of such structures, photonic crystals, has been predicted to produce novel electromagnetic effects based on the variation of the propagation constant with frequency and direction. Advances in processing technologies have enabled experimental demonstration of phot ...
