  1. 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 ...

  2. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  3. MINIATURE MICROWAVE RANGE AND VELOCITY SELECTIVE SENSOR SYSTEM FOR VEHICLE/OBJECT DETECTION

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: N/A

    SAFE MANEUVERABILITY OF HEAVY VEHICLES IS HAMPERED BY THE SIZE OF THE VEHICLE AND THE DRIVER'S LIMITED FIELD OF VIEW. OFTEN THE DRIVER IS BLIND TO IMPORTANT AREAS AROUND THE VEHICLE. A RESONABLY PRICED SENSING DEVICE IS NEEDED TO RELIABLY WARN THE DRIVER THAT A VEHICLE OR HUMAN EXISTS IN HIS OR HER BLIND SPOT. EMERGING MMIC TECHNOLOGY WILL MAKE HIGH-PERFORMANCE ULTRA-MINIATURE MICROWAVE FM-CW RADA ...

  4. CORROSION DETECTION IN AGING AIRCRAFT

    SBC: PHYSICAL ACOUSTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCEPT FOR THE DETECTION OF CORROSION IN AGING AIRCRAFT USING ACOUSTIC EMISSION MONITORING IS PROPOSED. CORROSION WILL BE LOCATED THROUGH THE EFFECT THAT IT HAS ON AIRFRAME STRENGTH (10% THINNING RESULTS IN 50% FATIGUE LIFE REDUCTION). ACOUSTIC EMISSION TECHNOLOGY USED ON THE F-111 FIGHTER/BOMBER WILL BE ADAPTED FOR USE ON COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT. PRELIMINARY CONCEPT TESTING ON A BOEING 720B HAS RE ...

  5. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 912RN

    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...
