  1. Microfabricated Broadband Connectors for Frequencies Above 100 GHz

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The region of the electromagnetic spectrum from 100 GHz to 400 GHz is currently underutilized but an area of exciting promise. Although atmospheric attenuation is higher in this region, the high frequency enables higher bandwidth operation. Transmit and receive components are also small resulting in the potential for lightweight miniature systems. Sub-millimeter waves also have the unique ability ...

  2. Non-contact Inline Material Sensor for Measurement of Electrical Properties of Nanofiber Films

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PaneraTech is proposing a non-contact dual sensor for broadband and real-time characterization of thin nanofiber films during the manufacturing. Our solution offers several unique aspects that are ideal for this application. For instance, it uses a dual CPW sensor for low frequencies and free space transmission system for higher frequency band. Our proposed sensor system is also equipped with high ...

  4. Porosity Gradient in Hybrid Composite Structure for Thermal Protection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF10BT27

    ABSTRACT: Many military and aerospace platforms, including a number of airborne and spaceborne vehicles, significantly benefit from new materials that save weight and improve performance. Thermal protection systems (TPS) and extremely high temperature structures are required for a range of hypersonic air and space vehicles. For example, over 20,000 thermal protection ceramic tiles are usually i ...

  5. Cognitive Radio Spectrum Management and Waveform Adaptation for Advanced Wideband Space Communication Systems

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: We analyze approaches to adaptively avoid hostile attack to satellite communications by applying a combined approach of game-theory research, dynamic spectrum access (DSA), policy-based resource management controls and wideband sensing. We analyze the impact of game theory to influence adaptive parameters (power, sensing threshold, frequency, network changes) and avoid attack. We study ...

  7. Technologies for Nanoscale Imaging Using Coherent Extreme Ultraviolet and Soft X-Ray Light

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT11

    ABSTRACT: Microscopy is a critical enabling technology for advancing our understanding of nature. Imaging nanoscale objects with light in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray regions of the spectrum has advantages over visible light for resolution, elemental specificity, and imaging internal structures. Coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) has been developed as a tool to get around the li ...
