  1. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  2. Suppression of Wind Turbine Clutter from Radar Data

    SBC: Matrix Research, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: It is well known that wind turbine clutter (WTC) presents a significant challenge to detecting targets in civilian and military applications. The large radar cross section (RCS) of wind turbines, combined with their significant range of Doppler spread, make traditional clutter mitigation techniques effectively useless. The objective of this Phase I effort is to develop a physically con ...

  3. Exploitable Physics for Recognition and Classification

    SBC: Matrix Research, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to develop innovative methods for deriving a sparse set of physical target features that can be used for exploitation of air to ground signature data collected from sensor systems including electro-optical, infrared, and laser radar. Current classification methods require near exact replication of the original imaging parameters, or extensive modeling in ...

  4. Innovations in Physical Modeling and Statistical Exploitation of Electromagnetic Target Signatures

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...

  5. Miniaturized, Power Efficient C-band Telemetry

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: AF12BT07

    ABSTRACT: The overall program objective is to utilize the best available technologies to successfully develop the concept and design of a state of the art C-Band telemetry transmitter that meets or exceeds the performance qualification parameters and size constraints detailed in the AF12-BT07 solicitation. Specifically, the objective of the entire two-phase program is to develop, test, and deliv ...

  6. Terahertz Frequency Materials Testing at Cryogenic Temperatures and in High Magnetic Fields

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: Terahertz (THz) spectroscopies offer unmatched non-contact probing of low-energy excitations underlying electronic transport and magnetism in a wide range of novel materials. To-date, expensive and complex THz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) systems are the most common THz source used in these studies. Lower cost, continuous wave (CW-THz) spectroscopy systems can offer comparable per ...

  7. Cryodeposit Mitigation and Removal Techniques for Radiometric Calibration Chambers

    SBC: OPTICAL SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Optical Sciences Corporation (OSC) and the University of Alabama in Huntsville"s Center for Applied Optics (UAH/CAO) will demonstrate the feasibility and present a plan for developing optical instrumentation for the monitoring, mitigation, and removal of cryodeposits accumulated on optical and mechanical surfaces in cryogenic-vacuum radiometric calibration chambers. OSC will investigat ...

  8. Development of a Rapidly Deployable Scaled Fighter for Aeroelastic Research

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT12

    ABSTRACT: Experimental testing of dynamic models has been performed for more than 50 years and a wealth of data exists for individual models. However, this data is often either restricted as proprietary or is not suitable for CSE tool validation as a result of incomplete model or test information. Mainstream Engineering proposes to design, fabricate, and test a scaled fighter for aeroelastic ...

  9. Intra-Subaperture Adaptive Optical (ISAO) System

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...

  10. Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) for Directed Energy Phased Arrays

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for an adaptive optics system using a fiber laser array as the spatial phase correction system within the subaperature of an array of discrete telescopes, Optonicus and The University of Dayton propose the development of a new Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) system. The integration of new fiber-array architectures with novel imaging and ada ...
