  1. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...

  2. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) can compensate for the aberrating effects of atmospheric turbulence which degrade the performance of high energy laser (HEL) weapon systems and, as such, is an enabling technology for effective deployment of HEL weapon systems. A key component in an HEL AO system is the deformable mirror (DM). However, mechanical constraints in currently available DMs limits AO system performa ...

  3. High Power Density Dual Rotor Permanent Magnet Motor with Integrated Cooling and Drive for Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc.            Topic: 1

    There is a critical need for electrification of transportation systems. The proposed technology enables the development of very high-power density permanent magnet motors, which when coupled to an integrated SiC drive allows for an overall specific power beyond 12 kW/kg. The proposed concept relies on the tight integration of a high-power density dual-rotor permanent magnet motor, high power densi ...

  6. Fully Adaptive Radar Resource Allocation

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEMS LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: AF19BT003

    In this proposal, ISL and MTRI will develop an advanced cognitive fully adaptive radar (CoFAR) and electronic warfare (EW) resource optimizer and scheduler. While the basic architecture for CoFAR has been developed previously, there is a need for a real-time scheduler that can handle the many complex operations and demands on sensor tasking that will arise when operating in a highly contested envi ...

  7. Fully Adaptive Radar Resource Allocation-- 19-061

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: AF19BT003

    The goal of the proposed effort is to develop a fully adaptive radar resource allocation framework for concurrent detection and tracking of targets. While the methods we will develop are general, we will specialize our analysis to ground targets by including clutter and using kinematic models relevant to ground targets. In Phase I, we will develop both task-driven and information-driven metrics in ...

  8. Passive Image Processing Algorithms for Automated Target Attitude Estimation

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF19BT005

    Weapons systems testing and analysis is crucial to engineering, understanding, qualifying, and deploying advanced weapons systems. With the boom in camera technology over the past decade image based methods to support weapons testing and analysis have become the state of practice for military test ranges. At the same time, there has been an explosion of research and development in computer vision ...

  9. Information Extraction for New Emerging Noisy User-generated Micro-Text

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: AF19BT006

    Neural networks have proved highly effective at extracting information from text. However, noisy microtext has proved to be particularly difficult because low-level syntactic cues much less useful. In this project, we propose to explore ways of incorporating strong semantic, expectation-based models into a neural net architecture to improve performance on microtext extraction. In phase I, we will ...

  10. Networking for Wideband Links at Terahertz Frequencies

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF19BT008

    The proposed solution has a novel adaptive antenna beamforming and beam-tracking solution for large scale array antennas necessary for extreme high frequency bands such as terahertz communication. The antenna beamforming solution is coupled with an efficient network topology management function to maintain an efficiently connected network as nodes move. Finally, a disruptive tolerant network routi ...
