  1. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT008

    In this effort, tOSC and the University of New Mexico COSMIAC (Configurable Space Microsystems Innovation Applications Center) will combine to generate a Target-in-the-Loop (TIL) system concept that can simultaneously measure the strength of atmospheric turbulence and scintillation, as well as the refractivity occurring at the measurement time. For this system concept, we will leverage existing tO ...

  2. Two-color Infrared Laser Arrays for Scene Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A17AT018

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (> 1Kx1K), response time < 1 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame ...

  3. Scalable technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride

    SBC: Soraa            Topic: AF08BT20

    We propose to demonstrate and advance several key aspects of our novel, scalable ammonothermal technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride. Specifically, we propose to demonstrate a high growth rate and high crystalline quality, to design and analyze a pilot-scale reactor, and to construct and validate a quantitative model to describe the fluid dynamics of the growth envi ...

  4. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...

  5. Orthogonal Chip Based Electronic Sensors for Chemical Agents

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: AF08T015

    Recent years have seen a shift in threats to US national security. Today increasing focus for national security is management of terrorist activities. Deliberately exposing a civilian population to chemicals and explosives to cause harm represents a looming terrorist threat. Early detection and identification is a difficult but essential element to minimizing the threat. The Seacoast Science/U ...

  7. High frequency (HF) direction-finding (DF) system based on an array of high-Tc superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs)

    SBC: Out of the Fog Research LLC            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II, we will fabricate a SQUID array antenna. We will develop cryopackaging and control electronics for these devices. We integrate the device onto a cryocooler and build a laboratory prototype. We will then have all of the building blocks to build a fieldable prototype in Phase III. BENEFIT: Military Application: Microwave Communication Systems for ISR. Commercial Application ...

  8. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...

  9. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: – unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags – abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...

  10. Robust Model for Behavior of Complex Materials during Spin Testing

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T013

    The objective of this project is to develop a practical finite element-based simulation of spin-pit tests of disks. The performance of disks in spin-pit tests critically depends on localized effects, such as residual stresses, dislocations, and microstructure gradients. Therefore, a two-scale modeling approach is adopted. At the global-scale, the disk is represented by means of finite elements wit ...
