  1. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  3. A Tool for Computationally Steering Optimization Software

    SBC: MSSRC            Topic: AF05250

    New methods for improving optimization software using random techniques and visualization were proposed and shown feasible in Phase I of this effort using a prototype GUI implemented with OpenGL. The Phase II effort presents five technical tasks necessary to put these ideas into practice. The first implements new algorithms for random methods using number theory, finite field theory, and advance ...

  4. Acoustic Pattern Recognition for Security Breaching Noise Detection

    SBC: Safety Dynamics            Topic: N06T036

    We propose the development of an acoustic recognition platform that can identify and locate specific sounds in high noise environments, and that can act as a foundation for non-line-of site detection and proactive alerts for other technologies such as cameras and UAVs. The proposed system is based on fundamental principles of neurobiological systems, i.e., it incorporates mathematical models and ...

  6. Adjustable Attachment Device for Aircraft Blankets

    SBC: HILLIER DEVELOPMENT            Topic: N06016

    A simple clamping U bracket to secure itself under pressure on both sides of the aircraft's structural frame ribs. A clamp will be placed on every section where the bonded studs currently exist. A cavity on the bottom of each clamp will hold a stud or other tool to secure the blankets. The outer surface of the bracket will be made of rubber and the inner core will be made of 9255 spring steel, ...

  7. Advanced Combustor Designs Utilizing Inlet Swirl for High Acceleration of Gravity (G) Combustion

    SBC: SPYTEK AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: AF071179

    Spytek Aerospace will soon become a low cost supplier of small high performance gas turbines for expendable UAV military operations, university research centers and hobbyists. During Phase I Spytek Aerospace analytically examined and experimentally assessed two `swirl-maintained' diffuserless high g combustor designs in our ATG-2 combustion rig and engine. Both Phase I concepts feature ultra-low ...

  8. Advanced High Operating Temperature Mid-Wave Infrared Sensors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05052

    The goal of this project is to reduce the cooling requirements of MWIR HgCdTe infrared photon detectors and improve detector performance at present-day cryogenic operating temperatures. During Phase I, we designed innovative Pn-N detectors and established the feasibility of growing the required HgCdTe-based structures by molecular beam epitaxy. Using this approach in a collaborative effort with th ...

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

    SBC: SENTIENT 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 ...

  10. Advanced Radio Frequency and Optical Connectivity to support Network-Centric Operations

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF06069

    NuCrypt is developing the technology for physical-layer optical encryption that exploits the intrinsic, irreducible noise of light. Our method, called AlphaEta, has fundamental and practical security benefits and the technology performs similarly as standard optical communications equipment. We have demonstrated AlphaEta in installed fiber-optic networks and have also built encrypted free-space op ...
