  1. 3D Stereo Binocular Head Mounted Display (HMD) Technology for Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Aircraft and Simulation

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF121027

    ABSTRACT: Stereo symbology has promise as a method to help declutter the vast amount of information presented to fighter pilots and to call their attention to important information that may get lost among all the other information they are asked to process. Stereo graphics and imagery have benefited molecular modeling, medical visualization microscopy, and engineering design. What has not been s ...

  2. 6DOF Sensing & Dynamic Impact Recorder for Measurement of Ejection Event Biodynamics

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF181003

    Despite advances in ejection seat design and injury mitigation, crew protection can likely be improved with better characterization of this hazardous environment during actual ejection events.Measurement of head/neck 6DOF motion in this environment has unique challenges.An ultra-low power system requires sensing deep sleep and idle states until a threshold is reached indicating an actual ejection ...

  3. A 100 W, V-Band Elliptical Beam Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF141193

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a 100 W TWT for operation in the 71-76 GHz band. The design will be compatible with space qualification for operation in a geostationary earth orbit (GEO) satellite platform. The performance of the TWT will be optimized to support 12/4 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) with 30 dB suppression and no more than 3 dB backoff. We propose to use a rectangular circuit ...

  4. A Learning-Capable Optimal Control Architecture for Energy Optimization in Hybrid Electric UAVs

    SBC: optoXense, Inc.            Topic: AF181029

    The development of energy-efficient and low-cost propulsion systems for UAVs by implementing hybrid-electric concepts is critical for the US military. optoXense-GaTech team proposes to develop novel learning-capable optimal control methods to optimize the energy/power distribution for small UAVs with hybrid electric propulsion (HEP) systems for various flight scenarios. The method is based on robu ...

  5. A Network Sensor-Based Defense Framework for Active Network Security Situation Awareness and Impact Mitigation


    ABSTRACT: Cyber-attacks are increasing in frequency, impact, and complexity, which demonstrate extensive vulnerabilities of networks with the potential for catastrophic damage. Defending against these cyber-attacks requires network security situation awareness (SA) through distributed collaborative monitoring, detection, and mitigation. In the Phase I project, IFT team has developed a Network Sen ...

  6. A Proposed Realizable Solution to AEDC's VTCPS

    SBC: Augmntr, Inc            Topic: AF181016

    The purpose of the VTCPS SBIR project is to develop a Virtual Reality (VR) test cell presence system that provides real time three dimensional, multi-spectral, and test data access to test hardware and support systems while testing is in progress in a remote environmental test cell.Phase I of this project consists of a Systems Engineering model that will inform a trade study and demonstrate the fe ...

  7. A Universal Modem for Airborne Networking

    SBC: TrellisWare Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141037

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force has a goal of supporting very high bandwidth communication systems for airborne and ground terminals. This communication system should support a wide range of data rates that will be imposed by the terminal sizes, link distances , and weather conditions. It is envisioned that this system should primarily achieve the communication through free space optical (FSO) transmiss ...

  8. ACA-SSURS: Aerial Cloud Analytics for Surface SUrveillance and RF Situational Awareness

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF171040

    Current airborne sensors produce very large volumes of data, but the airborne battle managers aboard BMC2 platforms do not have the appropriate analytics to process this massive data. Lack of appropriate analytics represents a missed opportunity to extract additional and timely actionable intelligence, especially considering the fact that, in most cases, data bandwidth to the command center is lim ...

  9. Accelerated Modifications using Physics-substantiated Safety Arguments (AMPS)

    SBC: Inspird Inc.            Topic: AF181025

    A new approach is proposed for Accelerated Modifications using Physics-substantiated Safety Arguments (AMPS). We leverage evidence-based certification methodology and Safety Arguments (SAs) to map modifications to system architecture and behaviors. We integrate formal methods to build SAs that trace the impact of modifications through complex system interactions. AMPS connects SAs to critical desi ...

  10. Accurate Angle of Incidence (AOI) Measurement Capability

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF131177

    ABSTRACT: For certain weapons systems, lethality is directly correlated to the orientation of the weapon with respect to the target at impact, also known as the angle of incidence (AOI). Accurately measuring AOI is of the utmost importance in developing and advancing state-of-the-art precision weapon systems. Currently, there is no commercially available sensor system for measuring AOI to the pre ...
