  1. CSAR-X Digital Visionic System

    SBC: Sage Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: AF071028

    The proposed system is a wide field of view helmet mounted system that will incorporate short wave infrared (SWIR) camera technology with dual imaging lenses placed just above the operator’s eyes, and fused with a thermal long wave infrared sensor (LWIR). The Sage Team will take a component approach (sensor, processor, and display) that offers the best leverage of commercial technology. The Sage ...

  2. Remote-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Detection Identification and Classification Algorithms (RADICAL)

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF071219

    Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) continue to be the most significant threat affecting our troops today. Efficient electromagnetic capabilities that facilitate detection, identification, classification and geo-location of IEDs and associated subcomponents are critical. Nearly all IEDs utilized commercial electronic devices as triggering mechanisms. Examples include pagers, handheld radios, ga ...

  3. Advanced NDE for SiC Optics Using Micromachined High Frequency Phased Array Ultrasound

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF071142

    TRS is pleased to propose an in-situ NDE imaging tool for SiC mirror surface damage (SD), sub-surface damage (SSD) and trapped internal stress detection using piezo-composite based micromachined ultrasound transducer (PCMUT) phased array technology. PCMUT technology has been developed at TRS to fabricate high frequency ultrasound transducers with broad bandwidth and high sensitivity. Phased array ...

  4. Artificial Intelligence Hybrid Range Scheduler


    Scheduling is a complex, NP-hard problem that challenges the use of any single solution technique. In Phase I, we built a model that uses our multi-technique Quantum Leap Problem Solving Engine to solve a representative but simplified version of the AirForce Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) contact scheduling problem. The system demonstrated that it could schedule the hundreds (500 to 600) of t ...

  5. Flow Control for Vehicle Populsion/Weapons Integration


    An internal aircraft weapons bay, when exposed to freestream flow, experiences an intense aeroacoustic environment and varied suppression concepts have been tested for attenuating flow-induced oscillations. Recent tests with open-loop, high-frequencyexcitation have shown great promise in providing broadband attenuation and elimination of tones. High frequency actuation apparently alters the dyna ...

  6. Silicon-On-Sapphire GPS System On A Chip

    SBC: OPTELLIUM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal outlines a program to develop a complete Stokes polarization imaging system. Although conventional imaging techniques have undergone fairly advanced levels of development, enabling low-level light detection, IR imaging, and high-resolutionimaging all at rapid frame rates, the techniques nevertheless are fundamentally constrained to detection of only the intensity and color of light. ...

  7. Oil and Material Compatibility for Improved Bearing and Gear Durability

    SBC: Wedeven Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recognized risks associated with the introduction of new material and oil formulations for propulsion system bearings and gears have created a crisis with respect to urgent needs for increased load, speed and temperature. Conventional test methods formaterials and oils have insufficient linkage to service performance and mechanisms that control life and durability. The recognition of the cur ...

  8. Improved Radio Frequency (RF) Polymer Substrates for Antennas

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: AF071134

    Based on multiple technology platforms and theoretical analyses, in the Phase I program we have demonstrated the feasibility that RF polymers with desirable high frequency properties can be achieved. Following Edison¡¯s model of product and process development for technology innovations, Phase-II will pursue further incremental improvement in material properties upon the concept-proving materi ...

  9. Improving Weapons Bay Acoustical Environments


    The F-22A main weapons bay experiences severe acoustic loading when exposed to the freestream. The severity and attenuation of this loading is exacerbated by the flight envelope of the F-22A aircraft, as well as the requirement to carry and release “smart” weapons throughout this envelope. This extremely harsh environment can also impact components that are mounted within the bay itself, inclu ...

  10. Radio Frequency/Microwave Hazard Assessment Tool (RHAZ)

    SBC: REMCOM, INC.            Topic: AF071042

    With the advent of High Powered Microwave (HPW) weapons, it has become necessary to understand the effect of the radiated energy on those persons exposed. Additionally, other systems, such as microwave and troposcatter systems, also pose a danger to humans who are exposed to their radiated energy. The U. S. government, the Air Force and other international organizations have developed standards th ...
