  1. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...

  2. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...

  3. Multi-material Additive Manufacturing of RF Electronics

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c) military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space.To accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components.For the case of radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems this will requi ...

  4. Multimodal Non- destructive Evaluation of Internal Surfaces of Holes in Steel Structures

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A16012

    A bore evacuator is generally used in gun barrel of armored fighting vehicles to help prevent poisonous propellant gases from venting back into the fighting compartment. It consists of a ring of holes drilled into the barrel, surrounded by a cylindrical pressure reservoir. Under typical operating conditions, pitting corrosions and stress corrosion cracks can form in the inner walls of those drille ...

  5. Real-Time Millimeter-Wave Holography for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVE) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...

  6. Real-Time Camera-Independent Image Processing System For Long-Range Tactical Imaging Applications

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: A15026

    We propose to identify the algorithms, architectures and performance evaluation criteria for real-time, high-resolution, long-range imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The most promising algorithms will be implemented on a hardware acceleration platform. The end-goal for phase 1 is to develop a complete system design ready to be implemented in hardware for real-time video processing of 2Kx2K v ...

  7. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Millimeter-wave RADAR imaging holds significant promise for many applications from rotorcraft DVE mitigation to standoff security screening. A key challenge of this imaging modality, however, has been the implementation of an effective method for creating an image without relying on either mechanical scanning or expensive, high SWAP phased array techniques. Herein, we present a concept for creat ...

  8. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    New enhancements to mobile computers including smaller sensors, displays and powerful processors have made them much more attractive for the battlefield, not only as wearable systems for soldiers, but also unattended ground sensors a warfighter can leave behind for situational awareness. Unfortunately, while the technologies for hands-free interfacing have improved greatly, the challenge of limiti ...

  9. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  10. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...
