  1. 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 environmenta ...

  2. Power Electronics Thermal Interface (PETI) with Conductive Diamond Plating

    SBC: Global Circuit Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    A growing number of electronic applications within the Air Force, such as devices for power conditioning and distribution, RF power amplification, and high power lasers have been identified for increased heat transfer requirements to maintain operational temperatures at acceptable levels while increasing the performance through higher power. However, this same target research that requires increas ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Next Generation Satellite Communications

    SBC: Blue Cubed, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Small Satellites are a rapidly growing technology and of great interest to both commercial and DOD customers. With the increased access to space and the maturation of small satellites, the mission capabilities have expanded significantly. Along with these expanded capabilities are a need for new approaches to satellite communications with increased capabilities. Blue Cubed is working on developing ...

  5. Room Temperature Quantum Memory

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Quantum computer technology is so critical and strategic that the Air Force Research Laboratory is itself working on a quantum bit focused on the trapped ytterbium (Yb+) ion. The current technology based on entangling electrons, photons, or ions are challenging to put together in multiple qubits. To make a qubit stable, it is essential to protect it from outside interferences that can disrupt the ...

  6. Eliminating Ransomware Attacks with Program Access Control (PAC)

    SBC: MARC PEREZ            Topic: AF19BT001

    In the wake of ransomware reaching epidemic proportions and the current anti-ransomware products’ inability to stop its march, there is a great deal of urgency in creating effective countermeasures. Our proposal is to design and subsequently develop a technology called Program Access Control (PAC), that can positively protect data on both consumer and enterprise systems. If successfully dep ...

  7. Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC)-Enabled Chip-Scale Atomic Devices (CSAD) for Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: AF19BT001

    Sensors based on chip-scale atomic devices (CSADs) offer portability, manufacturability, and high performance for precision navigation and timing (PNT) missions. Key systems for PNT including atom interferometric gyroscopes (AIG) and atomic clocks. Ongoing advances and innovations in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are directly relevant to CSADs. Different material bases have been used in PICs ...

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

    SBC: Exosonic, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Exosonic is developing a quiet Mach 1.8, 4500 nmi range supersonic civil aircraft that uses aerodynamic shaping techniques to mute its sonic boom. Exosonic is teamed up with Stanford University Prof. Juan Alonso's Aerospace Design Lab to apply the lab's low boom shape optimization tools to design this aircraft to meet future low-boom regulatory standards. The aircraft's primary customers are comme ...
