  1. Extracting Valid Inferences from Data, Evidence, and Novel Tests (EVIDENT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT01

    ABSTRACT: A recent study by the National Research Council found that sophisticated statistical techniques are finding their way into DoD operational test design, but that current DoD practices are still substantially behind the state of the art. The study concluded this has resulted in inefficient test designs, wasted resources, and less effective acquisition decision making. US Air Force test an ...

  2. Biologically-inspired low light integrated vision systems

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to develop a vision system for a micro air vehicle (MAV) or other robotic system that allows it to operate in extremely low light levels. We will develop systems capable of operating in ambient light or with active illumination carried aboard the vehicle, and will explore both silicon-based sensors for the visible/NIR band and hybridized sensors for the SWIR and/or MWIR ...

  3. Biologically Inspired Plasmonic Integrated Multi-Color Sensors (BI-PIMS)

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: In this program, Agiltron, Inc. and Harvard University will develop a biologically-inspired integrated sensor that can detect the UV, visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), and mid-wave infrared (MWIR) bands. This sensor will be integrated with plasmonic filters to provide additional information from the radiation field that may not be available to common image sensors. The advanced integr ...

  4. Game-Theoretic Space Situational Analysis Toolbox (GaTSSAT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: By considering multiple space-based teams of cooperative and/or uncooperative players with varying orbital geometries and defense/offense capabilities such as sporadic observations, jamming confrontations, and sparse communications, the main challenges in derivation of effective decisions for autonomous space systems are: (a) development of effective game models and game training algori ...

  5. Development of an Innovative System for Cryodeposit Mitigation and Redmediation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) propose to develop an innovative system to measure and control the cryodeposit layer thickness that develops on cold surfaces in cryogenic radiometric calibration chambers. The system includes: 1) an in-situ, interferometric-based instrument to monitor the cryodeposit layer thickness, 2) a mitigation sy ...

  7. Non-Invasive, Portable, Real-Time Sensor for Health Monitoring of Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF103214

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate two types of affordable, portable, non-invasive, real-time sensors to assess over time the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors without affecting the motor"s integrity. In Phase II, we will build upon our Phase I success to develop a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical ...

  8. Framework for Assessing Cloud Trustworthiness (FACT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF112031

    ABSTRACT: When Air Force applications or data reside in a third-party"gray"cloud, trustworthiness can be compromised due to lack of control over the underlying infrastructure. The user must treat the cloud as a black box that cannot be instrumented or modified. To support verifiable access to applications and data residing in gray cloud infrastructures, we will develop a framework that treats the ...

  10. 20 Gigahertz (GHz) Radiation Hardened Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) for Satellite Communications (SATCOM) Downlinks

    SBC: Auriga Measurement Systems LLC            Topic: AF112150

    ABSTRACT: Auriga will complete the development of an innovative linearized K-band High Power Amplifier (HPA) in 24 months with one additional month for the final report. This innovative approach is expected to bring revolutionary performance (close to 40% PAE under QPSK). Auriga"s HPA will have a linearizer integrated in the MMIC and packaged, requiring no other interface or digital chips to acco ...
