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

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

    Custom MMIC Design Services has significant experience in the design, characterization and destruction testing of MMW LNAs. We have successfully designed X-band LNAs on GaAs with sub 1dB noise figures. These designs have been shown to survive up to 1W of RF power with no input protection. CMDS has also designed diode based limiter circuits to extend that protection to 6W. Our innovative design tec ...

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

    SBC: Auriga Measurement Systems LLC            Topic: AF103178

    Phase I tasks will determine the integration plan for the block downconverters used in satellite communication systems. The anticipated advantage of using GaN HFETs for limiter/LNA combination will be quantified. The concept will be verified by device characterization, modeling and a prototype amplifier demonstration. MMIC amplifiers will be designed for the final goals, to be completed and fabric ...

  3. Wireless, Intelligent, Non-Invasive, Low-Power Life-Cycle Status Monitoring System for Efficient Armaments Inspection and Sustainment

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF161112

    The Air Force needs an external, self-powered, non-invasive, RFID-like status monitoring device to track the handling and environmental factors experienced by missile armaments during their lifespan. Few monitoring systems have the capability to measure environmental conditions and use that data to determine time spent in storage, on the flightline, on the aircraft, or in the air. The developed sy ...

  4. Wireless, Time-synchronized, Event Control System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: AF103236

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a wide-area, wireless, time-synchronized event controller system (WTECS). The proposed solution will provide a reliable, low cost, non-intrusive system that can record sensor data, control events, and display data in real time by employing a distributed network of wireless event controllers. BENEFIT: There i ...

  5. Wireless Sensor Network powered by Energy Harvesting Solution Network

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: AF103201

    ABSTRACT: Turbine engine performance, efficiency, and reliability can be greatly improved if additional and evolving instrumentation can be added for input to the FADEC and PHM systems. As this additional instrumentation becomes a larger percentage of the engine"s total life cycle cost; the need to reduce maintenance and installation overhead for new instrumentation becomes increasingly importan ...

  6. Wireless self-powered covert area monitor (WisperCAM) for radiation detection

    SBC: RayWatch, Inc.            Topic: AF151009

    This project seeks to design and manufacture a prototype WisperCAM detector and to tests its ability to covertly monitor for and detect isotopic radiation. The tasks to accomplish the WisperCAM will build on Phase I. The computer models from Phase I wil

  7. Wide Area Infrared Chemical Imager

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous standoff detection of lethal or narcotic chemical agents and chemical emissions has long been a major concern. While significant advances have recently been accomplished in remote spectral sensing using regged FTIRs with point detectors, efforts towards spatial chemical discrimination and low-cost portable devices have been lacking.Foster-Miller, Inc. (FMI) together with Boeing/Rockwel ...

  8. Weapon Systems Integration Cost Model (WS-ICM)

    SBC: HJ FORD            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force Research Laboratory Materials and Manufacturing Directorate (AFRL/MLMS) has initiated a multi-phase project to produce a Weapon System Integrated Cost Model (WS-ICM). To support the requirements presented by rapidly changing weapons acquisition environments, WS_ICM's methodology is based on cost as an independent variable through the total life cycle. The model comprises three modu ...

  9. Wavefront Detection with a Wide Dynamic Range

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and build a tunable, non-contact optical figure-measurement system to measure surface aberrations on a large membrane or segmented mirror. Our approach uses novel electro-optic devices to vary the resolution of the system over four orders of magnitude. Our concept also incorporates algorithms to interface with the mirror-actuator system so that the aberrations in the mirror' ...

  10. Warfighter Portable Power Generation using Heat Pipes

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: OSD10EP7

    The energy harvesting potential of thermoelectric materials has been significantly increased over the last several years. However, while research efforts have demonstrated new thermoelectrics with significantly improved material conversion efficiencies, little work has been done to develop commercially viable thermoelectric energy harvesting systems with both high system-level efficiencies and po ...
