  1. Holistic Interoperable Directional Data Enhancement Network

    SBC: Fuse Integration, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT003

    Currently fielded multi-beam CDL systems have been developed in an ad-hoc manner consisting of a collection of poorly integrated off the shelf technologies where controllers, radios, routers, firewalls, encryptors, and antennas are bolted together to reduce time to field.Proprietary APIs, electrical interfaces, and hardware interfaces impede the success of the approach and result in a sub-optimal ...

  2. Progressive Model Generation for Adaptive Resilient System SoftwareDigital Thread Modeling Environment (DTME)

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: N13AT014

    The ability to align Digital Threads (DT) to Digital Twins (DTw) is a critical component required to achieve reduction in total ownership cost of current and future Air Force (AF) programs. The connecting of the DT to the DTw is a key requirement to achieve model-based system engineering. One can view the connection between DT and DTw as the ability to develop robust models of the real-world syste ...

  4. Resilient Directional Mesh Enhanced Tactical Airborne Networks

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF17BT003

    FIRST RF will lead the Phase II effort and will leverage the system architecture of the MAINLINE system and integrate multifunctional SiGe integrated circuits (ICs) developed by The University of California San Diego under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Rebeiz. The SiGe devices developed during the Phase II effort will significantly reduce the power requirements of the MAINLINE system allowing f ...

  5. Computationally Efficient, Accurate and Uncertainty Characterized Chemical Kinetics for Hydrocarbon Fuels

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT004

    High-pressure turbulent combustion occurs in many combustion devices critical to the Air Force. Notwithstanding significant progress in computational modeling of these devices; several challenges have remained. A fundamental challenge is identification of reaction pathways and reactions in small molecule foundational chemical kinetics requiring improvements under these high-pressure turbulent cond ...

  6. Environmentally-Compliant Inorganic Material(s) for Corrosion and/or Wear Protection of Structural Metals on Military Aircraft and Weapon Systems

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT31

    The proposed project will focus on qualifying amorphous-iron Particle Reinforced Metal Matrix Composite (PRMMC) coatings as replacements for Electrolytic Hard Chrome (EHC) and HVOF WC- Co wear and corrosion resistant coatings on high-strength steel components. These legacy coatings have been identified on the OSD Emerging Contaminants Watch or Action Lists, and future manufacture and maintenance o ...

  7. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation (RADARS)

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...

  8. High Precision Remote Cardiopulmonary Monitoring through combined iPPG and Low Power Radar

    SBC: Cardiac Motion, LLC            Topic: AF19AT003

    Vital sign, such as respiration rate and heart rate, provide important indications of the physiological and mental conditions of an Airman. Being able to understand the physiological and mental conditions of an operator is therefore of vital importance to improving the efficiency and efficacy of future Air Force operations. Current state-of-the-practice in continuous cardiopulmonary vital sign mon ...

  9. Embedded Device Isolation for Trusted High-Assurance (EDITH)

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: AF19AT013

    Current techniques for supporting Multi-Level Security (MLS) on embedded devices rely on maintaining secure connections back to centralized servers or dedicated computers for managing authentication and access controls.To provide the embedded devices with the capability to handle content of differing security levels directly on device, the operating system (OS) must properly and securely isolate u ...

  10. Toolset For Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Aeroshell Properties Based OnConstituent Materials And Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT021

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...
