  3. ACTIVATED METAL DECOY FOR LOW IR SIGNATURE AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Alloy Surfaces Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACTIVATED STEEL FOIL FABRICATED INTO ELEMENTS TO BE PACKAGED AS EXPENDABLE DECOYS HAS SHOWN GOOD PERFORMANCE IN LOW IR SIGNATURE APPLICATIONS. THE PRESENT BATCH PRODUCTION PROCESS FOR THESE FOILS ENTAILS, IN PART, TWENTY HOURS OF FURNACE TREATMENT. A COMBINATION OF NINE SEPARATE OPERATIONS, LOW PRODUCTION RATES AND HIGH LABOR COSTS YIELDS A UNIT MANUFACTURING COST OF MORE THAN $250.00. WE PROPOSE ...

  4. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N08122

    Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic are to (1) develop automated reasoner technologies to distill large volumes of PHM data into actionabl ...

  5. ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE TOP SOLAR CELL FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRATOR WITH IMPROVED AMO EFFICIENCY

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INCREASES IN SOLAR CELL EFFICIENCY CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH TANDEM MULTI-JUNCTION STRUCTURES TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE AND SCALE OF SPACE PHOTOVOLTAIC CONCENTRATORS. THE "TOP SOLAR CELL" TANDEM APPROACH COULD INCREASE ENERGY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY BY AS MUCH AS 100%. A SELF-SUPPORTING ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE (ALGAAS) TOP SOLAR CELL IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRAT ...

  6. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  7. Biologically Inspired Reconfigurable Computer for High-speed Object Avoidance in Small UAVs

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N08079

    For this project, we plan to collaborate with researchers in the neuroscience department at the University of Delaware to develop an FPGA-based embedded computer, inspired in the brains small vertebrates (fish). The mechanisms of object detection and avoidance in fish have been extensively studied by our Delaware collaborators. The midbrain optic tectum is a biological multimodal navigation cont ...

  8. Dynamic Kernel Monitoring for Attack Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD07I05

    In an information warfare scenario, the enemy will deploy an attack that has never been seen before. This attack will completely debilitate both defensive and offensive software capabilities. We have designed and developed a system that will defend against such attacks. The project's major innovation has been a comprehensive approach for tolerating security violations in mission/safety critical ...

  9. Enhancing FPGA Performance Through Integrated Optical Interconnects

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF06T006

    FPGAs have attracted a great deal of attention over the past decade because of their performance, scalability, and cost relative to traditional hardware platforms. However, one of the most significant disadvantages of FPGAs is based on the underlying architecture on which they are built. Specifically, routing delay through the chip is one of the largest bottlenecks in developing FPGA-based appli ...

  10. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptors for its BMDS. Imaging technology is crucial to this effort for several purposes, including navigation, false-alarm/decoy identification, and estimation of position and speed of potential targets. Although high-resolution imaging systems are readily available, these require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture optics, whic ...
