  1. Microwave system for small-scale treatment of rocket propellant laboratory derived waste

    SBC: CHA CORP.            Topic: AF083263

    ABSTRACT: During normal course of research, development, and testing by AFRL at EAFB, small quantities of environmentally hazardous propellant, explosive, and pyrotechnic (PEP) wastes are produced. The objective of this SBIR Phase II project is to construct and field-demonstrate a prototype capable of destroying 30 pounds per month of PEP waste at AFRL Propellant Research Laboratory. After the ...

  2. Multiband source for IRCM

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: AF093212

    ABSTRACT: Q-Peak proposes to demonstrate a high-average-power, Band I and IV infrared source based on an innovative combination of an efficient fiber laser and a nonlinear optics wavelength converter. The technology is well-suited for integration into aircraft platforms. BENEFIT: The infrared source can be used as a missile countermeasure for combat air, land, and sea vehicles. Commercial appli ...

  3. Active Thermal Tile (ATT) System for Operationally Responsive Space

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF103107

    ABSTRACT: Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) is a key military capability aimed at enabling strategic and tactical use of space. To achieve these objectives, the design, assembly and deployment of unmanned spacecraft supporting DoD space missions must be radically overhauled to resemble a modular production and integration process. One significant focus of the current ORS need is to address th ...

  4. Rapid Fabrication of Aerogel Thermal Insulation for Operationally Responsive Space Satellites

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: AF103107

    ABSTRACT: The Department of Defense is actively pursuing the capability to assemble and launch a satellite within days, or even hours, of a battlefield commander"s notification for anticipated needs and within several months to no more than a year for unanticipated needs. The thermal control systems (TCS) on these satellites currently pose an obstacle to meeting this target. Thermal insulation ...

  5. High Laser Damage Threshold, Broadband Anti-Reflection Treatment Based on Surface Relief Microstructures

    SBC: TELAZTEC            Topic: AF103190

    ABSTRACT: In a Phase I project, the problems with optical performance and low threshold for damage limiting the advancement of mid-infrared (mid-IR) wavelength high power laser systems based on metal-ion doped chalcogenide materials, was addressed through the replacement of multi-layer thin-film coatings with optically functional surface relief microstructures. Anti-reflection (AR) textures, kno ...

  6. Further Development, Implementation, and Testing of the Veracity Evaluation of non-Redundant Information in Flight sYstems (VERIFY)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF103008

    ABSTRACT: Phase I results have demonstrated the feasibility of the Veracity Evaluation of non-Redundant Information in Flight sYstems (VERIFY) technology through simulations and flight tests in the case of different sensor failures. In each case an appropriate Fault Detection, Identification and Accommodation (FDIA) scheme was developed, along with confidence measure calculation. Continuing devel ...

  7. X-Band and Ka Band Low Noise Block Downconverter

    SBC: Custom Mmic Design Services, Inc.            Topic: AF103178

    ABSTRACT: We propose three distinct innovations which are key to achieving a drastic reduction of cost of a block downconverter, while simultaneously improving the overall performance. The use of GaN devices will allow exceptionally high performing MMICs to be developed which will reduce the system noise figure and raise the system linearity. These two effects will greatly increase the dynamic ra ...

  8. Hybrid Learning and Model-Based Approach To Performance Prediction of Feature Aided Trackers

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: AF103192

    ABSTRACT: Generating track data from wide area motion imagery is an important first step in many exploitation tasks including high value target tracking, activity-based threat detection, and adversary network analysis. Tracker development to date has made significant advances, but there has been limited focus on tracker performance modeling and we need such a model to enable fusion with other so ...

  9. Interrupted Synthetic Aperture Radar (intSAR)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF103191

    ABSTRACT: SSCI proposes to investigate and finalize the design of a SAR imaging approach that provides the SAR user community with good quality complex SAR imagery from phase-history data having temporal and/or frequency data gaps. These data-gap interruptions maybe planned or spontaneous, cooperative or non-cooperative and may result from both friendly and/or hostile radio frequency interference ...

  10. Mission Oriented Router with Protocol Heterogeneity (MORPH) for Dynamic Airborne Networks

    SBC: MAYFLOWER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY, INC.            Topic: AF103044

    ABSTRACT: Mayflower proposes an autoconfiguring router technology, namely the Mission-Oriented Router with Protocol Heterogeneity for Dynamic Airborne Network (MORPH). MORPH is a comprehensive autoconfiguration technology that allows the airborne network to automatically set itself up to facilitate the full networking functionality. This goal is much broader than the traditional view of autoconfi ...
