  1. Standoff Coherent Optical Detection of Acoustic Signals (SCODAS)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Detection of clandestine tunnels and underground facilities is a continuing interest of the US DoD and Customs and Border Protection. Research continues in an attempt to find functional and reliable sensing methods, including seismic methods. Dynamic activity in tunnels emits mechanical energy that propagates away in seismic waves. Resulting ground vibrations can be measured at offset d ...

  2. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  3. Real-time Location of Targets in Cluttered Environments

    SBC: Wave CPC Inc.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this STTR project is to develop a mathematical tool to simulate EM scattering in a cluttered environment. The main sources of clutter included are periodic scattering from windmills, reflections from fixed topography and effects due to varying atmospheric properties. BENEFIT: Increase radar capability to detect targets over wind farms.

  4. Innovations in Physical Modeling and Statistical Exploitation of Electromagnetic Target Signatures

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...

  5. Miniaturized, Power Efficient C-band Telemetry

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: AF12BT07

    ABSTRACT: The overall program objective is to utilize the best available technologies to successfully develop the concept and design of a state of the art C-Band telemetry transmitter that meets or exceeds the performance qualification parameters and size constraints detailed in the AF12-BT07 solicitation. Specifically, the objective of the entire two-phase program is to develop, test, and deliv ...

  6. Terahertz Frequency Materials Testing at Cryogenic Temperatures and in High Magnetic Fields

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: Terahertz (THz) spectroscopies offer unmatched non-contact probing of low-energy excitations underlying electronic transport and magnetism in a wide range of novel materials. To-date, expensive and complex THz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) systems are the most common THz source used in these studies. Lower cost, continuous wave (CW-THz) spectroscopy systems can offer comparable per ...

  7. SANDGT: a Stochastic Adaptive Nonlinear Differential Game Tool for Persistent and Risk-Averse Space Situation Awareness

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: Space defense analysis and mission trade studies are vital for the success of space-borne military operation. In this proposal, Intelligent Fusion Technology, Inc (IFT) and its partners propose a decision support tool called stochastic adaptive nonlinear differential game tool (SANDGT) for persistent and risk-advert space situation awareness. The main idea of our approach is to design a ...

  8. Robust Decision Tool for Persistent Space Self Defense Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to apply a game theoretic approach to design a robust decision making tool for self defense space systems that integrates realistic system models, distributed sensor management, advanced estimation, and tracking techniques. Our approach uses innovative game models to track space objects, analyze their orbits, and provide decision tools for the ...

  9. Intra-Subaperture Adaptive Optical (ISAO) System

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...

  10. Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) for Directed Energy Phased Arrays

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for an adaptive optics system using a fiber laser array as the spatial phase correction system within the subaperature of an array of discrete telescopes, Optonicus and The University of Dayton propose the development of a new Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) system. The integration of new fiber-array architectures with novel imaging and ada ...
