  1. Electron emitting graphene based composite coating for spacecraft charging mitigation

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT011

    Faraday and Utah State University propose to demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing electrophoretic deposition to develop graphene features with controlled functional properties in order to address the DoD need for a spacecraft charging mitigation. Implementation of such materials in DoD mission areas is anticipated to lower costs, improve sustainability, and increase readiness. The proposed Pha ...

  2. Deep Agent with Self-learning for Human Events Recognition (DASHER)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: AF18BT002

    Automated analysis of human activities and events on the ground from aerial videos is key to extracting critical situational awareness and gathering actionable intelligence. It poses multiple challenges, including dynamic backgrounds that can be confused with foreground, multiple simultaneous activities in the field of view, occurrence of unknown activities, and large data volume and velocity. The ...

  3. Electronically Dimmable Eye Protection Devices (EDEPD)

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF18BT003

    Electronically dimmable materials with sufficiently strong visible transmission shift, color neutrality, durability and switching speeds have eluded development since the search began nearly half a century ago. We demonstrate the potential for dynamic optical dimming using plasmonic nanostructures with electrodynamic simulations of promising plasmonic metamaterial architectures. In order to achiev ...

  4. Electronically Dimmable Eye Protection Devices (EDEPD)

    SBC: Alphamicron, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT003

    The team of AlphaMicron Inc. and Kent State University proposes a novel LC technology, the dynamic polarizer, as a light control system for Battlefield Airmen and Pilots. The dynamic polarizer technology shares the performance capabilities of AlphaMicron’s e-Tint LC light control technology: instantaneously fails-to-clear, millisecond switching times, and customizable tint and color. Howeve ...

  5. Carbon Nanotube FET Modeling and RF circuits

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: AF18BT006

    The computing demands of future data-intensive applications far exceed the capabilities of today’s electronics and cannot be met by isolated improvements in transistor technologies or integrated circuit (IC) architectures alone. Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors (CNFET) technology has emerged as leading candidate for energy-efficient and high-performance digital systems. Unfortunatel ...

  6. Airborne Video Inspection for Automatic Targeting with Ontology Reasoning (AVIATOR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT007

    Improved cameras and unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) have led to an explosion in the amount of airborne imagery and video collected by Air Force assets, but there are not enough trained personnel to analyze this imagery in real time. Thus, targets of opportunity and threats go undetected until the chance to act on them has passed. Automatic target detection could alleviate the burden on analysts and ...

  8. Multiphysics Modeling of Dynamic Combustion Processes Using Pareto-Efficient Combustion Framework

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: AF18BT010

    The objective is to develop zonal multi-physics capability for turbulent combustion simulations. The foundation of the proposed work is a novel Pareto-Efficient Combustion (PEC) framework for fidelity-adaptive combustion modeling. The PEC model utilizes a combustion submodel assignment, combining the low-cost flamelet-based models with the more expensive finite rate chemistry models where necessar ...

  9. PRIME: PRimary Integration and Maturation of EGS

    SBC: THE DESIGN KNOWLEDGE COMPANY            Topic: AF18BT012

    Legacy satellite command and control capabilities and their related telemetry operate in a largely stove piped framework. Satellites are still commanded, controlled, and communicated with their ground station in a specific constellation structure. Each ground station is unique to a given constellation and the communications and telemetry are aligned to the specific constellation, underscoring an o ...

  10. Ultra-fast Multiframe X-ray Imaging System for Explosive Events

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT014

    Measuring the response of explosives to a variety of thermal and mechanical inputs is important to understand and ultimately predict the reaction violence of an explosive in an accident scenario. Technically, there are many challenges to overcome in observing explosives response. For instance, secondary high explosives are heterogeneous and optically opaque and often need to be confined in metal c ...
