  1. Visual Ontological Language for Technical Standards (VOLTS)

    SBC: Aztera, LLC            Topic: 9010273R

    Current research shows that failures in the standardization process are often the result of a failure of the participants to communicate or organize. To this effect, NIST has developed a tool, NIST Ontological Visualization Interface for Standards (NOVIS), with an environment for visualizing, browsing, and querying standards. Aztera will create a Computer Aided Standards Development (CASD) framewo ...

  2. Developing and Improving Commercial Marine Algal Culture in the United States

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Maine Fresh Sea Farms (MFSF) will build a multi-species, multi-season prototype farm with the goal of having crops of fresh sea vegetables available throughout the year. What isn’t utilized fresh will be dried for longer-term storage and used in other products. Our team will gather data on water quality, nutrients, light levels, and hydrodynamics to assemble profiles of key parameters that deter ...

  3. Laser/Microwave Energy Deposition to Improve Control/Performance of High Speed Vehicles

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF103009

    ABSTRACT:In this effort, we will couple the energy of focused microwave bursts into the air and onto surfaces by first forming a laser plasma. The presence of the laser plasma allows much lower microwave intensities to couple their energy to the laser-pre-ionized surface or air- volume, allowing more efficient energy-transfer and the use of lower-power microwave systems to achieve the desired effe ...

  4. Implementing the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm for Imaging in Daylight and Strong Turbulence

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF103017

    ABSTRACT:A new algorithm, the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm (DORA), has been developed. DORA includes a novel implementation of the multi-frame blind deconvolution image restoration concept which recovers high-quality object estimates from sequences of degraded images. DORA removes the effects of atmospheric aberration in images recorded at ground-based telescopes, and is designed to opera ...

  5. Wireless Power for Battlefield Airmen Operation

    SBC: ArmorWorks, Inc.            Topic: AF121192

    ABSTRACT:A phase II program is proposed leading to integrate wireless inductive power transfer technology on two prototype tactical vests. The focus of the phase II program would be the development and evaluation of a full-scale inductive power transfer system on a PRC-152 radio by both modifying and interfacing its battery. Because a mating vest/pouch that contains inductive charging circuits so ...

  6. Holographic Video Display Using Novel Guided-wave Scanning System

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF131023

    ABSTRACT:Todays analysts need improved 3D visualization tools to assist in critical situations such as deconfliction, line-of-sight analysis, air space and satellite control.Currently available 3D displays cannot provide the level of detail and comfort needed because the displays contain unacceptable visual artifacts, do not provide full parallax, require special headgear, and induce nausea in man ...

  7. Heterojunction GeSn based Photonic Devices

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: AF141002

    ABSTRACT: Si photonic devices based on GeSn materials will be very important for the MWIR. The Air Force recognizes the need for next-generation high-performance photonic materials in the SWIR to MWIR infrared spectrum, due in part to the atmospheric high transmissive windows in this wavelength ranges. Due to materials limitations, silicon based photonic devices have not been utilized in this wa ...

  8. Thick Composite Crack Analysis

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N132101

    Advanced thick composites are increasingly used in components for defense applications as well as commercial structures. The proposed project will lead to the development and commercialization of a validated predictive capability based on the Peridynamic (PD) theory to enhance the performance of thick composite components under complex loading conditions while exposed to harsh environments. The pr ...

  9. Improved TPS for Analog and Mixed-Signal Bad-Actor SRUs

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093207

    ABSTRACT: The proposed program addresses the cost effectiveness of maintenance operations for mission-critical electronic warfare circuit card assemblies (CCAs), by reducing no fault found (NFF) codes and accelerating accurate diagnosis of root causes in support of repairs of analog, digital, radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal CCAs. Benefits of the proposed work include a projected 50% reducti ...

  10. Improved Test Program Sets for Bad-Actor Circuit Card Assemblies in VDATS

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF093208

    ABSTRACT: Ridgetop Group, Inc. will develop an innovative solution to isolate troublesome no-fault-found (NFF) occurrences in the maintenance depot. We will develop advanced technology to integrate into improved Test Program Sets (TPSs) used to test complex circuit card assemblies (CCAs) of line-replaceable units (LRUs) in electronic warfare (EW) systems. The work will result in a 60% reduction ...
