  1. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...

  2. RPA Simulated Operational Communications and Coordination Integration for Aircrew Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: OSD11CR3

    The DoD is facing significant challenges in training Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) crews. At the same time that the popularity of RPAs is increasing and the need for qualified crews is skyrocketing, airspace restrictions and limitations in simulators are making it increasingly difficult to offer effective training opportunities. To help the DoD meet these challenges, Sonalysts and our teammates ...

  3. High Range Resolution (HRR)-Surrogate SAR Target Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF112137

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force has invested considerable resources into collecting and synthesizing radar data for training and testing ATC/R systems. Significant cost savings may be realized if these existing datasets may be leveraged for training new sensors and modalities. Signal Innovations Group offers a new paradigm for automatically identifying statistically salient features for ATR systems fro ...

  4. Micro-camera Composite Focal Plane Array for Night Passive Persistent Surveillance

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: AF112147

    ABSTRACT: A micro-camera composite focal plane array (CFPA) comprised of a primary optic and an array of camera//lens modules with high sensitivity, low noise CMOS image sensors provides a low cost, compact solid-state imaging system for wide area persistent surveillance across a range of lighting conditions from full daylight to clear starlight. Applied Quantum Technologies Inc. (AQT) in partner ...

  5. High Conductance Thermal Interface Material for Use in Space Applications

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF121060

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I Air Force SBIR program, NanoTechLabs (NTL)will develop a space-qualifiable, high-conductance, thermal interface material (TIM) for use in space-based flanged heat-pipe-to-heat-pipe joints or for mounting relatively small area units with stiff baseplates and high power loads. NanoTechLabs will exploit its novel carbon nanotube vertical array material and manufacturing pro ...

  6. Optical Filters on Thin Cover Glass

    SBC: RUGATE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF121126

    ABSTRACT: Optical filters on solar cells can improve cell performance by maximizing light transmission into the cell and by helping maintain cell operating temperature with minimal added weight. Anti-reflection films reduce Fresnel reflection losses and maximize light transmitted to the cell. Reflection of below band-gap photons reduces the heat load on the photocell. Reflection of specific in-ba ...

  7. Passive Airborne Radar Using Opportunistic Signals (PASSAROS)

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF121138

    ABSTRACT: A key requirement for a practical/scalable airborne passive radar system using opportunistic ground emitters such as broadcast TV is the ability to effectively isolate the high-powered direct-path signals from much weaker target reflected ones. Previous passive radars rely on array antennas complemented by multistatic techniques and dedicate/agile decoders for every-possible-type of opp ...

  8. THREE-DIMENSIONAL HIGH-SPEED TOMOGRAPHY OF DENSE SPRAYS USING BALLISTIC IMAGING

    SBC: Taras Research, LLC            Topic: AF112167

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this research effort is to develop a next-generation time-gated ballistic imaging (BI) system for three-dimensional characterization of liquid breakup within dense fuel sprays. The temporal resolution will be varied using nonlinear time gating and pulse shaping techniques to optimize image contrast for a range of optical densities in sprays for propulsion appli ...

  9. Ruggedized PEM Electrolysis Hydrogen Generator for PEPSAE Recharge

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF112183

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, a ruggedized proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen generator based on Proton"s current laboratory products is proposed as a portable recharger for metal hydride storage canisters. The PEM technology enables simplicity in the fuel logistics stream for support Aeromedical Evacuation missions and similar forward operating scenarios. In addition, the PEM cells can be ...

  10. Advanced Corrosion Resistant Coating Systems for Preservation of Aerospace and Infrastructure Systems Used in Military and Commercial Applications

    SBC: Porter Scientific, Inc.            Topic: AF112217

    ABSTRACT: A new knowledge-based approach is proposed to mitigate the corrosion of metallic surfaces. The approach is based on the rational design of molecular coating materials based on a new class of phthalocyanines. While these materials resemble fluorinated polymers in their capacity to prevent the intrusion of moisture associated waterborne ions and the diffusion of oxygen to the metallic ...
