  1. Automated Acoustic Monitoring of Birdstrike Hazards

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF02T009

    Bird-aircraft collisions (birdstrikes) present a significant threat to military and commercial aircraft, and as bird populations and air traffic continue to grow, and airport/airbase operations continue to expand, the problem will steadily get worse. A majority of the efforts to solve this problem focus specifically on bird mitigation via, e.g., wildlife and environmental management. However, a ke ...

  2. Compact High Power Microwave Systems

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: MDA04T009

    High Power Microwave (HPM) systems capable of generating gigawatts of power for pulse lengths of microseconds have significant military applications. The military utility would be even greater if such systems could be packaged for placement in current Army mobile platforms (long range and short range), on UAVs, or in aircraft. Previous simulations have shown that the proposed device is capable o ...

  3. Fabrication of High Electrical Mobility Transistors on Flexible Substrates for Phased Array Radar and Terahertz Antennas

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: ST041005

    Compound semiconductor films are the key ingredient enabling the construction of ultrafast (>10 GHz) transistors. Materials such as Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), Gallium Nitride (GaN), Silicon Germanium (SiGe) and Indium Phosphide (InP) have shown great potential to enable a quantum leap in transistor performance. There are numerous commercial and military applications for such ultrafast transistors. ...

  4. SCorES, A Logical Programming Environment for Distributed Systems

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF04T023

    Distributed systems, important to civilian and military infrastucture, have steadily become more complex and steadily more difficult to understand, implement, and maintain. Addressing these dangers, a collaboration between ATC-NY and Cornell University will build a mathematically based tool, SCorES, providing powerful automated support for specifying, developing, verifying, and synthesizing re ...

  6. Automated Design Optimization for Hypersonic Plasma-Aerodynamics

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF04T009

    Clear Science Corp. and the University of Minnesota propose to evaluate and develop design optimization methods that exploit flow ionization associated with hypersonic, trans-atmospheric flight vehicles. Using magnetic fields from on-board devices, power may be extracted from ionized gas generated in the high-energy flow and electromagnetic forces can control heating and aerodynamic loading on th ...

  7. Direct Digital Predistorter for Linearization of RF Transmitter Power Amplifiers

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    HYPRES, in collaboration with University of Rochester, proposes to develop a novel RF transmitter architecture that extends digital signal processing into the RF domain. This "digital-RF" approach permits high-fidelity synthesis of broadband multi-carrier transmit waveforms, without the distortions associated with analog components. Most major signal processing operations, including up-conversion ...

  9. High Confidence Multimodal Biometric System

    SBC: International Biometric Group            Topic: A04T017

    Phase I consists of a detailed feasibility study examining the potential of multimodal biometric systems to provide more robust accuracy and throughput than single-modal biometric systems. An experimental system capable of utilizing previously acquired, correlated data - match scores, templates, and samples will be designed and built. This system utilizes combinations of two biometric modalities ( ...

  10. Optimized Power Conversion at Reduced Temperatures

    SBC: MTECH Laboratories, LLC            Topic: ST041002

    Proposed is a novel development program that will lead to an ultra-efficient cryogenic motor controller operating at temperatures above 60K. The motor controller is intended to demonstrate a significant reduction in losses, compared to its room-temperature counterparts. Cryogenic motor controllers are targeted to be used in large-scale DOD power conversion systems incorporating second generatio ...
