  1. A Tomographic Approach for Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR) Imaging

    SBC: Brilligent Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A16AT011

    The team proposes a 3D SAR algorithm based on the principles of radar tomography, which allows for transmitters and receivers to be arbitrarily located in a 3D volume. Data is collected and the output is a complete true 3D image of the reflectivity scene. The tomographic SAR provides detailed features on both horizontal (e.g., flat terrain) and vertical (e.g., building or canyons). With a proper ...

  2. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: Ahmic Aerospace LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    Scramjet engines are designed to operate across a wide Mach number range and typically incorporate isolator sections to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active, closed-loop control system is necessary to maintain engine stability and power output. During Phase I, key components of a scramjet control system were ...

  3. Advanced, nanostructred low-friction coatings for foil air bearings

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: N16AT005

    During Phase I, we propose to develop nanostructured, low friction thermal sprayed coatings that are able to withstand high dynamic loadings. Additionally, the novel coatings will possess a low friction coefficients in humid air, dried conditions and various greases and lubricants. These novel nanostructured coatings will be manufactured by HVOF spraying of solid lubricants based nanostructured po ...

  4. An Ultra-Compact Low-Power THz Radio SoC with On-Chip Antenna and Energy Harvesting

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for ultra-low-power, ultra-compact and low-cost radios to address emerging sensing and communication needs for military and commercial applications such as IoT/IoE. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by integration of a nano-scaled THz transceiver, on-chip antenna, and energy harvesting circuits in a form ...

  5. Analog Co-Processors for Complex System Simulation and Design

    SBC: Ocius Technologies LLC            Topic: ST15C002

    The objective is to design an analog (time-continuous) radiofrequency (RF) computation platform in the form of a software-defined RF integrated-circuit (IC) with supplementary digital logic for solving differential equation based simulations at speeds that are 1-2 orders of magnitude greater than available digital high-performance computation platforms. The maximum speed that the state-of-the-art ...

  6. Aptamer-based Nanofunctionalized OFET Biosensors

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: AF14AT11

    ABSTRACT: Researchers are identifying new biomarkers to help monitor, diagnose, and treat growing threats to the human body and enhance human performance. Recent sensor work combining biorecognition elements with field effect transistors (bio-FETs) has been shown sensitive and selective to biomarkers in the picomolar range with continuous detection; however device-to-device performance variability ...

  7. Ceramic Polymer Composite Electrolyte

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A14AT014

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) has developed a solid Ceramic Polymer Composite Electrolyte (CPCE) for metal-air power sources. The existing electrolyte solutions favor ionic conductivity at the sacrifice of mechanical performance resulting in metal-air batteries that are fragile and unpractical for portable applications. In Phase I, CRG developed a solid CPCE by combining superionic conduc ...

  8. Compressive 3D Infrared Imaging

    SBC: DetectIR, Inc            Topic: A15AT007

    DetectIR Technologies, along with Michigan State University, proposes to develop a 3D IR imaging system by integrating carbon nanotube (CNT) based IR detector technology with a compressive sensing method. This proposed effort will produce a portable, non-cryogenic-cooled 3D IR camera that will provide quality 3D images at video frame rates. The proposed camera design will solve several issues ...

  9. Configurable Adversary Response Prediction (CARP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    The Air Force has an interest in a run-time mission pilots assistant that will support tactical pilots in the rapid assessment of information quality and reconsideration of decisions that the information supports. Such a capability requires an efficient, predictive knowledge base that enables rapid situation assessment and decision support. In Phase II, we will develop the CARP (Configurable Adver ...

  10. Customizing Security for Diverse IoT Endpoints

    SBC: Samraksh Company, The            Topic: AF16AT10

    Endpoints in the Internet of Things (IoT) vary considerably in their hardware-software architecture and their functional capability. The IoT marketplace is unlikely to converge on a single or a few dominant endpoint platforms in the near term and potentially even long term future.This creates a major problem and an opportunity for securing IoT endpoints that are being increasingly integrated in cr ...
