  2. An Ultra-Compact Low-Power THz Radio SoC with On-Chip Antenna and Energy Harvesting

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for ultra-low-power, ultra-compact and low-cost radios to address emerging sensing and communication needs for military and commercial applications such as IoT/IoE. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by integration of a nano-scaled THz transceiver, on-chip antenna, and energy harvesting circuits in a form ...

  3. Compressive 3D Infrared Imaging

    SBC: DetectIR, Inc            Topic: A15AT007

    DetectIR Technologies, along with Michigan State University, proposes to develop a 3D IR imaging system by integrating carbon nanotube (CNT) based IR detector technology with a compressive sensing method. This proposed effort will produce a portable, non-cryogenic-cooled 3D IR camera that will provide quality 3D images at video frame rates. The proposed camera design will solve several issues ...

  4. Configurable Adversary Response Prediction (CARP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    The Air Force has an interest in a run-time mission pilots assistant that will support tactical pilots in the rapid assessment of information quality and reconsideration of decisions that the information supports. Such a capability requires an efficient, predictive knowledge base that enables rapid situation assessment and decision support. In Phase II, we will develop the CARP (Configurable Adver ...

  5. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...

  6. Durable Low Adhesion Anti-Icing and Ice-Phobic Surfaces

    SBC: HygraTek LLC            Topic: N14AT013

    Ice accretion is a significant problem for naval ship superstructures, decks, equipment and vehicles on board naval ships. In our work we show that by tailoring the crosslink density of different elastomeric coatings, and by allowing for interfacial slippage, it is possible to systematically design coatings with extremely low ice-adhesion (ice < 1 kPa). The use of interfacial slippage as opposed t ...

  7. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...

  8. Enhancement of Ballistic Missile Defense System Level Simulation Operations Through Multi-core Processing

    SBC: ISSAC Corp            Topic: MDA13T003

    The ISSAC Team propose a novel method to encapsulate legacy models and simulations that allows these components to take advantage of modern, multi-core, multi-processor hardware suites. Encapsulating these legacy codes provides 3 primary advantages to deal with complex systems and systems of systems (Air Force, Navy, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA ...

  9. Fully Encapsulating Dielectrics for Gaseous Helium Cooled Superconducting CORC Power Cables

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N16AT011

    Future power systems on board Navy ships require electrical power in the order of 20 to 80 MW, which currently cant be provided by conventional copper or aluminum power cables. Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC (ACT) has been developing high-temperature superconducting Conductor on Round Core (CORC) power transmission cables, rated at 10 kA per phase, for the Navy that form a potential solution ...

  10. Heterogeneous Data Discovery Using Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: KickView Corporation            Topic: AF16AT12

    Improving feature extraction, event detection, and target classification in multi-sensor systems requires new mathematical methods and processing techniques. In addition, previous research and experience suggests that leveraging sensor data that has not experienced significant dimensionality reduction can preserve subtle features when processed jointly with other relevant data. However, traditiona ...
