  1. Multisensor-Integrated Organ-on-a-Chip

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF19AT002

    The Air Force seeks three-dimensional bioprinted tissue that can accurately replicate complex multi-cell function and that can be integrated with biosensors. To address this need, Spectral Energies in collaboration with Prof. Khademhosseini of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) proposes to develop an organ-on-a-chip system. The organ-on-a-chip system will be capable of accurately mod ...

  2. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: EXCITING TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF19AT006

    The imaging vibrometer development will be based on a representative Directed Energy (DE) aperture assumed to be 30 cm.This effort will provide both DE and Combat IDentification (CID), modes for relative short range DE operations, and an ISR Combat IDentification (CID) mode for operation at extended range. A combination of analytic derivations and wave optics simulations will be used to define a r ...

  3. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF19AT008

    The research objective of the proposed work is to increase the efficiency of the laser return of a Sodium Guide Star Laser (SGSL) reflected off the sodium layer for increased reliability and applicability of the artificial guide star technique. During Phase I, we will demonstrate the concept of maximizing the SGSL signal returns using numerical simulations that account for the effects of atmospher ...

  4. Advanced Diagnostic for Performance and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE)are being developed to take advantage of the near instantaneous heat release potential of detonation waves versus conventional deflagration-based chemicalreactions in combustion applications. However, the detonation product environment is extreme and current instrumentation to measure wall / surface conditions within the detonation chamber are lacking. Thep ...

  5. Diagnostics for Performance Quantification and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT011

    In Phase I, ISSI will design and demonstrate a laser absorption-based sensor for time-resolved measurements of combustion fuel/product concentrations (H2O, CO, CO2 and fuel) and gas temperature within the detonation channels and nozzle exit-plane of a rotating detonation rocket engine (RDRE).The goal of this STTR is to develop a single sided sensor that plugs into the outer wall of the RDRE simila ...

  6. Machine Learning Methods to Catalog Sources from Diverse, Widely Distributed Sensors

    SBC: Introspective Systems, LLC            Topic: AF19AT012

    The efficient detection and understanding of clandestine nuclear device testing is critical to the security and credibility of the organizations currently tasked with this important work. At present, the Air Force Tactical Applications Center (AFTAC) and likewise, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) are running methods and algorithms that are out of date. These approaches use a ...

  7. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF19AT017

    The research objective is to develop a tunable spatially-varying photonic crystal (SVPC) to achieve the optical propagation properties (reflection and transmission) of the light through the designed structure for the visible and near IR-bands. The light from this SVPC will be able to focus and bend as a function of the spatial variation of the refractive index, input angle, and state of polarizati ...

  8. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: FLIGHTPROFILER, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    RADAR (and similar direct or observational meteorological measuring equipment) has limitations (inability to measure low vis conditions,line-of-site, limited vertical (z-axis), expensive/heavy equipment is required, etc.).To solve these limitations, a Purdue University team (launched via a SBC called FlightProfiler) has developed a technology that delivers a computer generated X-Y-Z environmental ...

  9. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: GhostWave Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    The proliferation and capabilities of hobbyist off-the-shelf drone systems poses a direct and immediate threat to U.S. national security. This proposal is a cUAS system to track unwanted UAS in the vicinity using stealthy radars that are AJ. The project will start with an understanding of customer needs and how we can adapt our proposal to best meet the needs of the Air Force.

  10. Ultra-Wideband and Full Duplex Radio

    SBC: Novaa Ltd            Topic: AF19BT001

    High-speed and reliable tactical communications have empowered the Air Force with overwhelming information superiority, and control of the battlespace. However, the effectiveness of such systems has been impacted by the increasingly congested and contested spectral environment, compounded by the reliance on half-duplex systems. The latter rely on time- or frequency-division to separate transmit an ...
