  1. Advanced UHF SATCOM Satellite Protection Features

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: N152123

    The proposed project involves the integration of an Artificial Magnetic Materials (AMMs) with a planar antenna system with the system exhibiting multiple RFI mitigation features. The system will protect against spatial RFI by using a metamaterial surface to reduce the beamwidth of the radiation pattern. The antenna systems will be designed as an array of supercells consisting of the radiating elem ...

  2. Micro-Plasma Blade Monitoring Sensor System

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: N152095

    The ability to monitor the structural health of the rotating components, especially in the hot sections of turbine engines, is of major interest to the aero community in improving engine safety and reliability. This is also true for the Department of Defense (DoD) where current developmental and future engines will need to operate at high efficiencies to meet the mission-weighted fuel burn (MWFB) ...

  3. Concurrent identification of Natural Antibiotics-Producing Gene Clusters and Culture Conditions

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: CBD152004

    Modern metagenomics studies on diverse microbiomes revealed immense repertoires of potential natural products/antibiotics to be tapped into.However, identifying such secondary metabolites (SMs) directly from a complex microbiome remains rarely successful due to two major technicalchallenges: i) difficulty in dissecting complex microbiome samples and massive metagenomics data, and ii) difficulty in ...

  4. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD).High dither conditions, caused by constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator components.The Air Force and co ...

  5. Superconducting Parametric Amplifier

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: A14AT010

    HYPRES, in collaboration with University of California, Berkeley, proposes to transition superconducting parametric amplifier technology into a robust line of products. In Phase I, we designed a compact package for lumped-element Josephson parametric amplifiers (LJPA) fabricated by our collaborators at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. We have also established the feasibility of digitization of the amplifie ...

  6. Virtual Flight Testing with DoD CREATE-AV Software

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF10BT16

    ABSTRACT: Clear Science Corp. proposes to develop and demonstrate software that accurately and efficiently simulates the full set of physics associated with aircraft flight operations through the integration of its physics-based reduced-order modeling (PBROM) technology into CREATE-AV Kestrel, the fixed-wing-aircraft component of the Department of Defense's (DoDs) CREATE Program. The Kestrel comp ...

  7. HiDyVE: Hierarchical Dynamic Video Exploitation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF151042

    ABSTRACT:Current full motion video (FMV) toolchains fall short of supporting semantically meaningful archive search for specific objects or object types. We propose the Hierarchical Dynamic Vision Exploitation system (HiDyVE), an end-to-end system for content-based object location and retrieval in operational FMV. HiDyVE combines convolutional neural networks (CNNs) specifically adapted to FMV's q ...

  8. Ultra scaling of SPAD arrays for high-speed laser ranging

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: N15AT011

    Ultrasensitive detection of visible light has a wide range of applications, including laser ranging and free-space optical communications. Ultimate sensitivity is achieved when individual return photons are counted with high probabilities of detection, low probabilities of false counts, and high bandwidth. Previously, Vacuum photomultiplier tubes provided good single photon detection sensitivities ...

  9. Rigid-body Off-axis Ordnance Shock/Tail-slap Environment Replicator (ROOSTER)

    SBC: OMNITEK PARTNERS LLC            Topic: AF151104

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this project is to develop ordnance shock/tail-slap environment replicator machines that can applying high acceleration/deceleration pulses of over 10,000 g peak over long durations of over 5 msec. The proposal describes two novel classes of shock/tail-slap testing machine concepts for feasibility study. The first novel class of multi-axial shock/tail-slap replicator mach ...

  10. Virtual Trusted Platform Module (vTPM)

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF151033

    ABSTRACT:Trusted platform module(TPM) devices provide the core root of trust for modern computer systems. These devices are used for secure, trusted, and measured boot approaches as well as to secure data for user applications such as Microsoft's Bitlocker technology. However, more and more systems are now virtualized in the cloud. Currently hypervisor technologies either do not provide guests wit ...
