  1. A High Fidelity Digital Interference Generator (DIG) with an Electromagnetic Wavefront Generator (EWG)

    SBC: Bedford Signals Corporation            Topic: AF04279

    The Air Force is looking to develop an open-air jamming and interference test capability, that does not require jamming clearance from the FAA. The system must be able to provide realistic system level tests for GPS receivers, antennas, and amplifiers. Bedford Signals proposes the development of several innovative technologies to enable a Completely Integrated Jamming Test System (CIJTS): an Elect ...

  2. A Novel Coverglass System with Enhanced Radiation Resistance

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: AF04029

    The service life of coverglasses used to protect photovoltaic cells on spacecraft is limited by darkening caused by ionizing irradiation. This decline in transmissivity significantly reduces solar-cell power output toward the system's end of life (EOL), which ranges from 15 years for satellites in geosynchronous orbit (relatively low radiation doses), to 10 years for those in low Earth orbit (mod ...

  3. A Passive Optical Carbon-Monoxide, Combustion Exhaust, and Temperature Sensor (POCCETS) for Turbine Engine Gas Paths

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF03167

    In-situ measurements of CO and temperature are required to monitor and control completeness of combustion in modern turbine engines. We propose the Phase II development of an innovative gas path sensor technology for spatially resolved measurements of the key combustion parameters: temperature, CO concentration, H2O concentration, and CO2 concentration. Passive optical probes are arrayed to coll ...

  4. A Planar Z-axis Gyroscope for MEMS Inertial Measurement Units

    SBC: Milli Sensor Systems and Actuators, Inc.            Topic: AF03143

    A planar, z-axis gyroscope is required to develop the simplest version of a planar MEMS IMU having all instruments integrated on a single chip. The z-axis gyro designed in Phase I replaces the four accelerometers currently used to measure z-axis rotation in the Integrated MEMS IMU under development. MSSA designs all the instruments using a common set of component parts, which, together with SOC ...

  5. A Robust Collaborative GPS Navigation System (RC-GNS)


    ABSTRACT: The military GPS users operating in urban, indoor and forested area environments experience a multitude of problems including intentional/unintentional jamming, multipath and signal blockage resulting in degraded or denied navigation. In this Phase II program, Mayflower proposes to refine, implement and demonstrate the innovative Robust Collaborative GPS Navigation (RC-GNS) System al ...

  6. Accelerated Development of Edge Bonded ALON Reconnaissance (Recce) Windows

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: AF093129

    Requirements for future reconnaissance (Recce) systems are driving the need for very large (~32"x32"), very high quality windows transparent in the visible and Mid Wave Infrared (MWIR) wavebands. At the present time, the leading candidate material for these demanding Recce applications is ALON Optical Ceramic, produced by Surmet Corp. The current available production equipment is limited to fabric ...

  7. Acquiring representations of Meta-information to Enhance Battlespace Awareness (AMEBA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD03028

    We propose to design, develop, and evaluate a system for Acquiring representations of Meta-information to Enhance Battlespace Awareness (AMEBA). AMEBA aids the warfighter by providing representations of meta-information, or characteristics of information such as uncertainty, staleness, etc. that aid decision-making and are not typically provided. Under Phase I, we demonstrated the feasibility of ...

  8. Active Calorimetry Development for Testing of Active Thermal Control Coatings and Devices

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF04147

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a calorimeter designed specifically for accurately measuring the solar absorbance (alpha) to long wavelength infrared emittance (epsilon) ratio, alpha/epsilon, of spacecraft thermal control coatings that can actively and controllably change their alpha or epsilon in response to the thermal environment. Additionally, we propose approaches to determine abso ...

  9. Adaptive Context-based Configuration for Model-Based SAR ATR

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: AF04230

    Conventional ATRs are trained and configured off-line. Re-training and reconfiguring for new conditions and new targets are labor-intensive procedures, and there is no mechanism other than robustness to interpolate between the trained conditions. We propose to improve conventional model-based SAR ATR performance under EOCs by incorporating context-dependent learning to adaptively configure the A ...

  10. Adaptive Hyperspectral Sensor Designs

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF04207

    We propose a new hyperspectral imaging technique based on a novel optical processor. The optical processor allows for the unprecedented capture of all three dimensions (two spatial and one spectral) of the data cube simultaneously. This device uses a 2-dimensional hyper-pixel array (HPA), that records the 2-D image and the spectrum of each pixel in each frame of data. Since the proprietary HPA d ...
