  1. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Nextgen Federal Systems LLC            Topic: AF182001

    Soil moisture is an important parameter for AF weather measurements and forecasting.It impacts Army operations (off-road mobility, land operations) and Intelligence Communitys knowledge (agriculture: social unrest).AF has classified soil moisture measurements and data as a DoD space-based environmental monitoring gap.If unmitigated, the lack of soil moisture data will diminish our asymmetric advan ...

  2. Directed Energy Decision Aids

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF182033

    Atmospheric propagation effects have a profound impact on Directed Energy (DE) High Energy Lasers and electro-optical sensor systems which operate at near infrared and visible wavelengths.In order to provide an accurate assessment of (DE) weapon system effectiveness, several parameters describing the atmospheric conditions must be either measured or modeled.On top of the atmospheric modeling, one ...

  3. Integrating Sphere at Microwave Frequencies

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF182036

    To meet the demands of AF182-036 SBIR solicitation (Integrating Sphere at Microwave Frequencies), MaXentric is proposing DYSON (Diffusive (Y)Integrating Sphere for Output aggregatioN). DYSON is a microwave integrating sphere made up of partial spherical segments, each 3-D printed to provide randomized scattering over a broad range of frequencies. DYSONs unique and novel design mixes the spherical ...

  4. Free-Space Optical Communications (FSO) and its Remote Detection, Location and Characterization or Interception

    SBC: Wavefront Vision Inc            Topic: AF182039

    The physical layer security of free space optical communication (FSO) has attracted growing attention recently.As the FSO laser beam propagates through the atmosphere, it is absored by moisture, Rayleigh and Mie scattered by aerosols, dust, particulates, fog, haze and clouds, and randomly or stochastically refracted by atmospheric inhomogeneities and turbulence. Such attenuations of the transmitte ...

  5. Militarized Direct RF Conversion Software Defined Radio (SDR)

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF182041

    To meet the demands of the AF182-041 SBIR solicitation (Militarized Direct RF Conversion Software Defined Radio (SDR)), MaXentric proposes an open source architecture SDR that leverages COTS components coupled with MaXentrics DSP algorithms. The design uses a direct conversion architecture to digitize the RF spectrum at the antenna. This results in an SDR that can analyze the entire EM environment ...

  8. Sensor to Establish the Initial Orbit of Deployed Satellites

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF182071

    Improved launch capabilities and the boom of nanosatellite payloads have significantly lowered the hurdles and costs associated with putting a mission into Earth orbit.Unfortunate byproducts of these conditions are an increasingly congested space environment and a larger portion of smaller payloads, which are challenging to acquire and track from the ground.In response to these needs, MaXentric is ...

  9. Hybrid Multi-Core Chip for Small UAS target acquisition and tracking

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF182085

    In small business innovative research (SBIR), Management Sciences, Inc. (MSI) is producing a miniature embeddable processing and instrumentation chip (Mini-EPIC) that is so small it fits inside the shell of an aerospace wiring connector. We propose innovative research that will employ the Mini-EPIC in a form factor to perform automatic moving target acquisition, tracking and aim point selection. P ...

  10. Modeling Tools for the Drilling of Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs)

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF182098

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team member, National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) at Wichita State University, propose to develop a micro-macro coupling tool for simulation of thermal-mechanical response and multi-mode failure progression in selected polymer matrix composites under drilling. A rational approach based on a micro-scale model is developed to cha ...
