  1. Doppler Scanning Gas Filters (DSGF): A passive sensor solution to global observation of upper atmosphere dynamics

    SBC: G & A Technical Software Inc            Topic: AF182001

    This proposed effort will establish the ability to observe global upper atmosphere dynamics at the vertical and horizontal resolutions required to dramatically advance weather forecasts and predict upper atmosphere turbulence.We show this can be accomplished with simple static thermal DSGF imagers looking in both the limb and nadir.The limb measurements, with a sensor called the Doppler Wind and T ...

  3. Future Logistics and Supply Chain Options

    SBC: MYMIC, L.L.C.            Topic: AF182004

    Operator maintenance of equipment is a perennial problem for the Armed Forces. Operators are often pressed for time or inclined to take shortcuts when performing pre-operations maintenance checks on equipment such as forklifts, APUs, trucks and so forth that are needed to support air operations. The aircraft and munitions tend to have a more important focus. However, it is critical that this auxil ...

  5. Dual use technology: Assembly

    SBC: Federal Foundry LLC            Topic: AF182005

    We propose investigating the utility of Assembly, our existing personnel and team capability analysis and matchmaking software, to 1) support the Air Forces mission to develop and field the most lethal force possible 2) help with pilot retention. The Air Force builds thousands of pilot, maintenance, and support services teams each year, and the success of those teams is determined in large part by ...

  6. Nanotechnology Enabled Neutron Detection Systems

    SBC: Guardion, Inc.            Topic: AF182005

    Neutron detector technologies that possess high detector efficiency, high gamma rejection, low-power consumption, and are able to be easily scaled to mission needs are critical for nuclear security and protection against terrorism.This proposal identifies a transformative new approach for neutron detection using a boron-10 activation layer paired with ion-sensitive nanomaterials.Recent work has sh ...

  7. Dual use technology: Hunting Party

    SBC: Federal Foundry LLC            Topic: AF182005

    We propose investigating the utility of Hunting Party, our government contracting analytics and engagement platform and government contracting user behavior data set to 1) increase competition for Air Force contracts by reducing the average amount the Air Force spends on each government contract and simultaneously increasing quality 2) encourage non-traditional vendors to bid on Air Force contract ...

  8. Adaptive Subsurface Corrosion Evaluation / Notation Tool (ASCENT)

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF182014

    This proposal addresses the need expressed in topic AF182-014 for a system to detect crack, pre-crack, and corrosion anomalies in landing gear components without removing coatings.Such a system is desirable since the removal and re-application of coatings for inspection is time-consuming and costly.An agile, high resolution system is required to find pre-crack flaws on complex surfaces, which by d ...

  9. 3D Additive Manufacturing Hybrid-Material Tiles

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF182021

    Aircraft tires are tested in a dynamometer with a rotating drum with tiles on the inside surface of the drum, against which a tire is loaded to replicate a range of operating conditions.A new technology for creating tiles that replicate runway surfaces that is optimized for cost, time, and accuracy is required.The proposed solution will address all three of those concerns and will be able to be us ...

  10. Materials for Improved Vacuum Performance in High Power Electromagnetic (HPEM) Source Devices

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF182034

    Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) require extremely high voltage and high power in very compact packages. For operation, a high power pulse is coupled through several vacuum-compatible dielectric components such as insulating feedthroughs, microwave windows, and radomes. These dielectrics must maintain the high vacuum of a vacuum electric device (VED), and withstand high voltages and large mechanical ...
