  1. Ultra-Dense Three-Dimensional Electronics for Space

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: AF073099

    R3Logic, Inc., in collaboration with Tezzaron Semiconductor will develop a rad-hard multi-core embedded processor / memory system that will be fabricated in a multi-layer 3-D integrated circuit. Phase I will focus on the system design. We will complete the RTL to GDSII synthesis of the processor and system components. The stack will incorporate Tezzaron’s patented 3-D Octopus memory, which has b ...

  2. Variable Thrust Hybrid Propulsion for Mission Flexibility

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: OSD08PR3

    A novel type of high burning rate hybrid rocket fuel is an enabling technology for a wide range of DoD rocket propulsion applications. This fuel system has been demonstrated to provide burn rate at least four times that of conventional polymers, while retaining the physical properties and specific impulse capability of HTPB based fuels. The result is a high density impulse capability utilizing s ...

  3. Particle Sampling System Designed to Simulate Aging of Aircraft Exhaust Plumes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06302

    ARI is developing an aircraft exhaust sampling system that transitions condensable species to the condensed phase in a manner that mimics what happens when the exhaust is emitted into the atmosphere. Standard engine-exit plane measurements are not suitable for these volatile particles because they form downstream of the aircraft as the exhaust plume mixes with ambient air and cools. Downstream mea ...

  4. Wide Bandwidth Photonics Based Beamformer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF081031

    An innovative concept for a scalable beamformer that can be applied to the full range of Air Force radars is proposed. The concept is photonics based and currently supports transmit/receive applications over the 0.1 to 20 GHz band. The design provides a digitally controlled True Time Delay beamformer effectively adapted to a phased array in any portion of the spectral coverage. Fine pointing resol ...

  6. SiGe Digital Imaging Sensors for Night Vision Goggles

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF081007

    In this project, Agiltron and RTI International propose a SiGe digital imaging sensor to replace the image intensifier tube in night vision goggles. The SiGe digitial imaging sensor will satisfy all modern warfighter requirements, including reductions in size, weight, power consumption, and cost; digitization of the output image; spectral coverage of both the visible and shortwave infrared (SWIR) ...

  7. Actively Excited Bio-Taggant Sensor

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF073084

    Leveraging on our extensive experiences on system design and, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new taggant reader system with low light detection and ambient light insensitive abilities, targeted for taggant emission remote identification, locating, and tracking applications. The proposed taggant reader is intrinsically insensitive to various environments and can be operated over a wide target dista ...

  9. Inspection of Subsurface Flaws around Fasteners on Aircraft

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF073119

    New technology is needed for nondestructive inspection (NDI) of defects in metallic components on aircraft. Small cracks and flaws in multilayer components near rivets and fasteners are a particular concern. Other problems include detecting and characterizing small defects in highly confined areas. An NDI technology capable of imaging deeply buried defects at various layers of a component under a ...

  10. 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 ...
