  2. Interference Mitigation and Anti-Jamming for UAS Using Spiral Modulation

    SBC: Astrapi Corporation            Topic: AF182005

    Astrapi proposes to apply a fundamentally new physical-layer communication innovation (spiral modulation, SM) to address several key challenges for Air Force Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). SM has the potential to dramatically increase spectral efficiency, enabling Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) wins such as smaller antennas and reduced signal power for the same communication performance. SM-based h ...

  3. QML-V Qualification of rad-hard ARM Cortex-M4 Microcontroller

    SBC: Silicon Space Technology Corporation            Topic: AF182005

    We are currently designing a next generation radiation-hardened MCU based on the ARM Cortex-M4 CPU. The MCU was defined in response to requirements that were gathered from a significant number of US Government and commercial aerospace customers who are familiar with VORAGOs existing VA10800 rad-hard MCU based upon the ARM Cortex-M0. Our objective is to qualify the radiation hardened ARM Cortex-M4 ...

  4. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions

    SBC: TEXAS HIGH ENERGY MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: AF182005

    A novel process will be used to create metal matrix composite systems with exceptionally high hardness, low friction, and greatly enhanced wear performance. Lightweight metal surfaces will receive a unique ceramic coating that will be bonded beneath the sub-surface of the host metal. These unique materials will provide enhanced wear and performance attributes. Our revolutionary metal matrix compos ...

  5. Digitizing and Automating Standard Operating Procedures

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: AF182005

    The Air Force relies on standard operating procedures for operating and maintaining complex systems or equipment. Examples include operating constellations of satellites, checking out an unmanned air vehicle (UAV) before flight, or performing maintenance on an aircraft. Industries also operate and maintain complex equipment such as oil rigs and chemical refineries using procedures. In many cases, ...

  7. Full Duplex Technology Enabling Next Generation Secure and Resilient Military Communication Systems

    SBC: GenXComm, Inc            Topic: AF182005

    In this SBIR Phase I program, we propose to evaluate use our unique simultaneous self interference cancellation (S-SIX) to enable efficient, low latency communication for warfare communication systems. Our technology enables self-interference from the transmit chain to be cancelled at the receive chain, thus enabling in-band, true full duplex communication. This enables the radios to have listen-w ...

  8. Aircraft Brake Titanium Torque Tube Heat Damage Nondestructive Inspection

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF182013

    Titanium alloy forgings and castings are used for torque tubes in aircraft landing gear/braking systems.These relatively massive and complex shaped parts are very expensive.Torque tubes, especially in near proximity to C-C braking components common on military aircraft, are subject to extreme temperatures.Titanium alloys oxidize at high temperatures and this transforms the preferred beta phase to ...

  9. QOI Maximizing Information Acquisition Framework (QMAF)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF182043

    The goal of the proposed SBIR is to research and develop a Quality of Information (QOI) Maximizing Information Acquisition Framework (QMAF) for event prediction that goes beyond the limitations of traditional approaches of heuristic/closed form optimization formulations (and its inherent computational complexities) for selection of sensor/data selection.The concept for deriving the QOI optimizing ...

  10. Blockchain-Based Resilient Information Provisioning

    SBC: VCRSOFT LLC            Topic: AF182044

    We propose a blockchain-based framework for resilient information processing. We formulate the problem as an information supply-chain tracking problem and develop conceptual construct that map blockchain tools/techniques to the problem of tracking the provisioning of information assets. We utilize smart-contracts to create course-of-action (COA) rules for handling exceptions that arise from attack ...
