  1. Improved Volume Hologram Optical Elements

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N162103

    As the demand for smaller, lighter, and more cost effective optical subsystems increases, many optical system designers see a growing application for advanced holographic lens technology. Having a lens whose thickness does not increase with increasing diameter or focal length is extremely beneficial for reducing size and weight in surveillance, UAV and satellite imaging applications. TIPDs Phase I ...

  2. Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) for Moderate Data Rate Communications (MMDR)

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF171043

    The Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is designed to replace UHF SATCOM with enhanced capacity and performance, modern crypto and modern protocols. The MUOS waveform is being ported to a number of software defined radios (SDRs) that will soon be fielded and capable of utilizing the MUOS network of geosynchronous satellites and ground transport. Once these radios are in place, the process of movi ...

  3. Uniformed Aeroelastic ROM Realization Across Flight Parameter Space for Dynamic Flight Simulation

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF161026

    The technical objective of the Phase II project is to develop the production-ready Dynamic Flight Simulation (DFS) system using the F-15 Saudi as a testbed and validate it with the F-15 Saudi flight test data. The key element in the DFS system is the Reduced-Order-Model (ROM)-based aeroelastic solver with an embedded aerodynamic forces database that is generated by a steady Navier-Stokes solver an ...
