  1. Tunable, Low Mass, Low Loss, Millimeter Wave, MEMS RF Filters

    SBC: AESOP, INC.            Topic: AF05230

    AESOP proposes to design and manufacture robust, miniaturized, broadly tunable mm-wave bandpass filters for space applications. The mm-wave tunable filters will have an unloaded Q of up to 1500 and the potential for multi-octave tuning ranges, for example from 6 to 18 Ghz, although any tuning range up to the limitations of the packaging, interconnections and actuator can be constructed. Aesop, Inc ...

  2. Protecting IT Systems From Cyber Attacks

    SBC: CYBER SPK, LLC            Topic: AF05106

    Based upon successful research in Phase I, this Phase II proposal describes the creation of a demonstrable prototype that will reduce the threat of cyber attacks. In addition, it will reduce the time (and therefore cost) IT staff need to defend their systems. The prototype will be a software utility called the Cyber SPK™ (System Protection Kit). The SPK will fuse data from four sources including ...

  3. Hardware Accelerated Simulator for Scattering from Electrically Large Objects and Scenes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05220

    Over the past few decades, computational electromagnetics (CEM) researchers have been making steady progress towards the development of efficient algorithms, such as the Method of Moments (MoM), for simulating scattering from electrically large targets. Unfortunately, such techniques have proved too computationally demanding because they require the solution of an often very large and dense matri ...

  4. Development of Advanced Polymer Based Photonic Crystal Devices and Fabrication Processes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05135

    Photonic crystals have led the way for miniaturizing application specific optical integrated circuit (ASOIC) to a scale comparable to the wavelength of light which in turn made them a good candidate for next generation high-density optical systems and interconnects. Polymer based Photonic Crystal structures have potential applications in optical integrated circuits, optoelectronics, optical switch ...

  5. Reconfigurable Nanophotonic Optical Interconnects for Advanced FPGAs

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF06T006

    Optically interconnected systems provide a number of additional benefits. For example, by removing metallic traces, many signal integrity issues are also eliminated as the parasitic capacitance and inductance associated with high-speed lines are removed, which further improves systems performance. Additionally, such systems typically require less power and experience less leakage, or wasted power ...

  6. Next Generation Architecture for Night Vision Imaging

    SBC: OASYS TECHNOLOGY, LLC.            Topic: AF06022

    This proposal is submitted to develop a new device architecture for enhancing vision under low illumination conditions and enabling out-of-band operation. The proposed effort includes establishing the optimal set of subcomponents and interfaces to realize the end system under constraints of size, power, and performance. The effort addresses the entire system including the optical front-end, SWIR s ...

  7. Compact Water Recovery for Fuel Cell Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF05142

    Compact, efficient, and sustainable generators are needed to provide mobile electric power for deployable military bases. Fuel cells with fuel processors that run on logistic fuel are attractive candidates due to their high efficiency. For good sustainability, these systems need to be self-sufficient in water. We propose to develop a compact water recovery unit that will capture and recycle wat ...

  8. Flight Test Assistant

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF05320

    The recent development of fully capable pocket size computers and miniature inertial sensors and GPS receivers has created a real opportunity for innovation in the conduct of flight tests. Creare’s Flight Test Assistant (FTA) takes full advantage of these new technologies to address issues of instrumentation cost, test productivity, and data quality. Our FTA combines off-the-shelf sensors with ...

  9. Bone-conducted Sound Transmission and Attenuation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF06T035

    Hearing protection for personnel working in high-noise environments remains an important challenge for the scientific and engineering community. The sound levels close to certain modern military weapons platforms approach 150 dBA. At these levels, the attenuation provided by hearing protection devices (HPDs) is limited by bone-conducted sound that bypasses the ear canal and its associated protect ...

  10. Advanced Aircrew Personnel Lowering Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF06020

    This proposal addresses the need for a modern aircrew personnel lowering device (PLD) to help parachutists extricate themselves from trees. The existing PLD design is over three decades old and is large and cumbersome. A more compact and streamlined device is desired as a future replacement. Creare proposes to develop a new PLD that uses a small, high-strength cord, a friction device that opera ...
