  1. Power Electronics Thermal Interface (PETI) with Conductive Diamond Plating

    SBC: Global Circuit Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    A growing number of electronic applications within the Air Force, such as devices for power conditioning and distribution, RF power amplification, and high power lasers have been identified for increased heat transfer requirements to maintain operational temperatures at acceptable levels while increasing the performance through higher power. However, this same target research that requires increas ...

  2. Next Generation Satellite Communications

    SBC: Blue Cubed, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Small Satellites are a rapidly growing technology and of great interest to both commercial and DOD customers. With the increased access to space and the maturation of small satellites, the mission capabilities have expanded significantly. Along with these expanded capabilities are a need for new approaches to satellite communications with increased capabilities. Blue Cubed is working on developing ...

  4. 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: ...

  5. Tactical Interfaces for Teaming with Autonomy (TITAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT001

    Intuitive mission displays and planning capabilities are needed to enhance pilot and operator situation awareness when teaming with next-generation autonomous vehicles in tactical operations. To address this, we will design and demonstrate Tactical Interfaces for Teaming with Autonomy (TITAN) to increase the shared awareness for manned/unmanned teams in distributed and complex communications envir ...

  6. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  7. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...

  8. SHADE (Shared Awareness in Denied Environments): A Decision Support Tool for Mixed-Initiative Teams

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF19AT001

    SSCI and ASU (Prof. Nancy Cooke) propose to develop SHADE (Shared Awareness in Denied Environments) - a comprehensive decision support tool which will facilitate smooth mission execution under information degradation and losses in mixed initiative teams (MIT) involving collaborating autonomous vehicles. In Phase I we propose to perform initial development, integration and testing of the SHADE tech ...

  9. Orientation-Patterned Semiconductor Crystals with Low Insertion Loss and High Resistance to Laser Damage

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF18AT016

    The Air Force needs tunable laser systems with high average power in the mid-infrared region of the spectrum for military applications including defense against heat-seeking missiles. Currently-fielded laser systems, based on nonlinear frequency conversion in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN), have limited optical power at wavelengths between 4 m and 5 m because of intrinsi ...

  10. Deep Agent with Self-learning for Human Events Recognition (DASHER)

    SBC: BOSTON FUSION CORP            Topic: AF18BT002

    Automated analysis of human activities and events on the ground from aerial videos is key to extracting critical situational awareness and gathering actionable intelligence. It poses multiple challenges, including dynamic backgrounds that can be confused with foreground, multiple simultaneous activities in the field of view, occurrence of unknown activities, and large data volume and velocity. The ...
