  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. Real-time Passive Three-Dimensional (3-D) Imaging and Ranging


    Comprehensive solutions for extracting 3-D imagery and absolute range from visible and/or infrared (IR) images collected from small UAVs, micro-UAVs, or situational awareness sensors are proposed. These techniques can be used for 3D structure reconstruction, scene interpretation and 3D visualization of areas of interest. Challenges such as perspective changes between image platform and scene, unce ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Automated Delamination Onset and Growth Prediction in Composite Structures

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF06092

    An automatic software tool for residual strength and life prediction of composite structure will be developed. This tool will for the first time be able to model arbitrary crack growth without user intervention or remeshing and thus provide a user-friendly, reliable tool for predicting component life. The automated delamination onset and growth prediction tool will be integrated with the ABAQUS im ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. High Frequency Optoelectronc Oscillator

    SBC: OPEL            Topic: AF05043

    Low phase noise oscillators are core components for communications and radars. System timing jitter is fundamentally important for digital systems and phase noise is the figure of merit for RF systems. For multi-GB/s clocks, optoelectronic oscillators using optical delay for the clock period, appear to have significant advantages. The phase noise may be minimized because the delay variability li ...
