  1. Multifunctional Prepregs and Laminated Composites Made by Shear Pressing Carbon Nanotube Arrays

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT36

    A novel method of fabricating carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced polymer matrix composites is proposed. It includes growing super-aligned carbon nanotube arrays on a flat substrate, using NCSU proprietary shear pressing method to compress the grown arrays into a layer of densely packed, highly aligned CNTs inclined at an angle of several degrees to the substrate, separating the produced CNT sheet fr ...

  2. Ultra Low Power, High Performance Microprocessor Core for Military and Space Applications

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    For Phase I, an ultra low power, high performance microprocessor core using a combination of double-gated and independent double-gated Flexfet™ SOI CMOS technology from American Semiconductor will be designed to address the requirements of military and space communication systems. High integration feasibility using Flexfet technologies followed by confirmation of the power and performance improv ...

  3. Multi-Object Spectrometer for Space Object Identification

    SBC: ASE OPTICS            Topic: AF093056

    Approximately 19,000 resident space objects (RSOs) larger than 10 cm are known to be orbiting Earth.[1] These objects range from active payloads, such as satellites, to "space junk."[2] Currently these objects are tracked using Ground-Based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance (GEODSS). There is a growing need for hyperspectral Space Situational Awareness (SSA) to detect and classify RSOs. Such ...

  4. Alcuin

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF083028

    The military, government, and commercial enterprises are all vulnerable to the crime of cyber attack. Digital forensics is the science of investigating digital devices, transmissions, and storage media to acquire and analyze evidence related to an incident or crime with the goal of providing solid information to assist decision makers in an organization, military, or legal context. The disciplin ...

  5. Automated Adversarial Course of Action Model Generation and Reasoning for Satellite Protection (commercial/military)

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: AF093046

    Black River Systems Company proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative simulation technology to dynamically reason and generate adversarial Space Course of Action (COA) models/playbooks and graphical node and link analysis of intended adversary counterspace actions. The proposed simulation technology, entitled “SimPath” was originally conceived by BAE Systems on the DARPA Deep Green pr ...

  6. Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

    SBC: STRAD Corporation            Topic: AF083184

    Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce reflections off the target, during Phase I, we have developed two new approaches for discriminating small delay differences from a sequence of radar dwells ...

  7. Technology for Dynamic Characterization of Micro-scale Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: CALSPAN CORPORATION            Topic: AF093108

    This program will apply Calspan’s background and experience to create a 6 Degree of Freedom motion apparatus and associated technologies for investigating flight mechanics, structural-aerodynamic interactions and flight controls of micro-scale aerial vehicles. This apparatus will be utilized to better understand the physics of these vehicles and assist researchers and developers by subjecting t ...

  8. Improved Cryogenic Cooling Technology: Low Jitter, Low Mass on Gimbal


    We propose an extension of our patented Flexibly-Attached Remote (FAR) acoustic-Stirling coldhead technology to multi-stage, multi-point cooling of gimbal-mounted electro-optical space payloads. Acoustic-Stirling (sometimes called Stirling ''pulse-tube'') is sealed, valveless, and oilless for extreme robustness. CFIC-Qdrive has developed means to practically separate the coldhead (zero moving pa ...

  9. A Proactive Countermeasure to Harden Integrated Circuits Against Exploitation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD10IA1

    We propose to implement a novel countermeasure against the exploitation of integrated circuit hardware. The proposed countermeasure is applicable to both FPGAs and ASICs, increases design obfuscation and promises to block embedded hardware exploits. It also is fully compatible with virtually any other hardware exploit countermeasure and reduces forensic costs when exploits are suspected. The propo ...

  10. Adaptive Quantum-Dot Photodetectors with Bias-Tunable Barriers

    SBC: ESENSORS INC.            Topic: AF08BT02

    The proposed research program focuses on design, fabrication, and characterization of quantum-dot infrared photodetectors (QDIPs) which features bias-tunable parameters, including the spectral response, optical gain, and operating time. Wide variations of detector parameters can be realized through the bias-tunable potential barriers surrounding quantum dots. Changes in bias will transform the ba ...
