  1. Sensor Fusion Modeling to Support Combat Identification

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The process of designing and evaluating advanced aircraft coatings can be made more efficient, more robust, and less expensive through application of highly accurate and flexible computer models. The General Scattered Light (GSL) model is such a signature analysis tool, but its potential is difficult to access by untrained or infrequent users, seriously limiting its value. We propose to overcome t ...

  2. Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Wideband Network Waveform (WNW) Host Simulator


    The Data Link Test Community has identified the need for early availability of test tools to support the initial deployment and integration of new waveforms and their associated data links. During the SBIR Phase I, TCG has identified system level requirements for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Wideband Network Waveform (WNW) Host Simulator (JWHS) and developed a preliminary conceptual de ...

  3. Software Protection through TPM Co-execution

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: OSD06I10

    This project proposes the research of an approach that leverages Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) to protect software. It utilizes the TPM as a security co-processor to the main application processor: instead of executing the software entirely on the main application processor, small fractions of the application code are executed on the TPM as secured code snippets. The strength of the approach come ...

  4. ESPA On-orbit Maneuvering System (OMS)

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF071284

    Busek Co. Inc. is developing a Multi-Mode Orbit Maneuvering System (MMOMS) that can be added to ESPA ring, transforming it into a free-flying spacecraft that can deliver payloads to multiple orbits. In Phase I, we proved the feasibility of the concept and defined the architecture. The MMOMS has three sub-assemblies: The ESPA ring; the ESPA Propulsion Module (EPM), and the Power and Avionics Modu ...

  5. Organic Photovoltaics--Flexible Light Weight Multi-junction Cells Based on Polymer/fullerene Active Layers

    SBC: KONARKA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071133

    In Phase I, we are examining materials that can be used to make tandem cells, with formulations that can be used on the process development coating machine. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of tandem modules with 6% efficiency. Phase II will begin mid-May 2008 with the goal of reproducible, 7% efficiency, tandem-cell module prototypes made on our coater/printer machines. These prototypes ...

  6. Temporal Processing for Airborne Missile Warning Applications


    This Phase I SBIR proposal represents a cooperative effort between Atlantic Aerospace Electronics Corporation and Texas Instruments, Inc. It is aimed at developing and assessing the feasibility of two innovative and fundamentally different approaches to track-before-detect (TBD) processing for passive airborne IRTW and IRST sensors. TBD processing techniques are required for airborne surveillance ...

  7. Laser-Based Diagnostics for Arc Heated Flows

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF06299

    Arc jet facilities are crucial tools in the development of thermal protection materials for vehicles re-entering Earth’s atmosphere. To ensure that the arc jet tests provide the desired conditions, the state of the test gas in the arc jet facility must be accurately known. Existing instrumentation relies on probes which perturb the flow and which cannot distinguish between the multiple species c ...

  8. Modular, High Precision, Digital Measurement System for Hypervelocity Projectiles

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF06300

    High flux flash X-ray systems provide unique methods of imaging ultra-fast events that cannot be captured using normal photographic techniques. X-ray images can be obtained in 20 to 50 nanoseconds, even through smoke, fire, and metal, and enable precise recording of details of test events under the harshest conditions. X-ray based techniques thus provide unique means to track hypervelocity proje ...

  9. Optimal Joint Search and Sensor Management

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF071289

    Joint Search and Sensor management of dispersed and disparate EO/IR sensors presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn MA and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin MS2 Tactical Systems (LMTS) of Eagan MN, propose a foundational, control-theoretic approach that is based on four innovations: (1) a multisensor-multitarget likelihood function whic ...

  10. Ice-Phobic Clearcoat to Improve Aircraft and Pilot Safety

    SBC: E PAINT COMPANY            Topic: AF071116

    Novel anti-icing/deicing additives were discovered in Phase I with robust low ice adhesion properties. Coatings formulated with these additives yield smooth, durable, transparent films that control ice accretion and significantly reduce ice adhesion. These coatings are easy to apply and remove by traditional techniques, are zero-VOC and are environmentally safe. Phase II research seeks to optimi ...
