  1. Adaptive Markov Inference Game Optimization (AMIGO) for Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF17CT02

    Space superiority requires space protection and space situational awareness (SSA), which rely on rapid and accurate space object behavioral and operational intent discovery. The presence of adversaries in addition to real-time and hidden information constraints greatly complicates the decision-making process in controlling both ground-based and space-based Air Force surveillance assets. The focus ...

  2. Anti-Reflective Surface structures for Infrared Non-linear Materials

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF18AT016

    High-power, high-efficiency, broadly-tunable coherent sources in the mid-wave infrared (MWIR, λ=3–5 μm) spectral band are coveted for applications relating to infrared (IR) countermeasures, remote chemical sensing, and free-space optical communication. MWIR sources based on optical nonlinear frequency conversion can generate broadly-tunable kilowatt-level coherent radiation over the e ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Ultrahigh-Bandwidth Robust Performance Diagnostics for Rotating Detonation Engines

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Spectral Energies proposes to design a multisensory diagnostic suite for measurements within elevated-pressure RDEs. This sensor will utilize tunable-laser absorption spectroscopy to measure temperature, pressure and H2O concentrations in the annulus of a rocket-RDE and background-oriented schlieren imaging system for flow density gradient imaging to provide time resolved information about the sho ...

  5. Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor Phase 2

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Through the execution of our Phase 1 effort, Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University developed an improved means to optimize the Pellizzarri cost functional for coherent imaging using digital holography. Our algorithm developed during the Phase 1 effort accelerates convergence times by a factor of 20-40 for the majority of scenarios evaluated. Our proposed Phase 2 effort has a two-fold focus: ...

  6. Quantum Dot LED Array for IR Scene Projection

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF18AT017

    Recent breakthroughs in the material quality and fabrication methods of III-V InAs/GaSb superlattice (SL) structures with a Type II band alignment has enabled high-performance MWIR detectors and LEDs. Nanohmic Inc. in collaboration with UT Austin proposes to develop Type II InGaSb/InAs quantum dot infrared light emitting diodes (QD-IRLED) for high-power infrared scene projection. This particular a ...

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

    SBC: ELEMENTAL COATINGS LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Icing is an omnipresent phenomenon in nature and technology and impacts a broad spectrum of sectors including aircrafts, drones, military and civilian infrastructures, logistics and surveillance systems, and marine vessels. Icing in aircrafts engine results in detrimental effects on engine performance, operability, and aeromechanics, may lead to catastrophic events and is a challenge for both lega ...

  8. Stretchable Wireless Power Systems

    SBC: BRHMS LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Critical care patients including trauma patients and post-operative patients are exposed to significant risk during aeromedical evacuation and transport. Physically wired patient monitoring items via rotary-wing aircraft, differing electrical power requirements, and non-availability of adequate power supply can impede device availability and severely risk en-route care. The proposed solution ident ...

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

    SBC: Cerium Laboratories, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Cerium Labs has developed a miniature, highly sensitive, semiconductor device called the Neutron Intercepting Semiconductor Chip (NISC, US Patent 6,075,261) to advance neutron detection technology for national defense. This device is essentially a flash memory chip with a 10B-enriched borophosphosilicate glass (BPSG) layer. The well-known n-10B reaction creates 4He and 7Li particles which deplete ...

  10. 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 ...
