  1. Extensible Affordable Software Defined Radio with Cross-Band Cross-Protocol Capability

    SBC: Acadia Optronics, Llc            Topic: N08T034

    Acadia Optronics, LLC, in partnership with the University of Kansas, proposes to develop a hybrid reconfigurable Software-Defined-Radio (SDR) architecture in which plug-in, front-end, rf modules interface to powerful, reconfigurable processing hardware and software through high-throughput interconnects. The complexity of the plug-in modules may range from simple antennas, to complete communication ...

  2. Heat Extraction from Underwater Acoustic Projectors

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N08T020

    The present proposal is focused on developing novel methods to counteract excessive heat build-up in underwater sonar projectors. Building on over 25 years of experience in the design of Navy sonar devices and thermal management applied to high power density transducers and smart material actuators, Active Signal Technologies and Alfred University will model several readily implemented passive an ...

  3. Extensible Affordable Software Defined Radio with Cross-Band Cross-Protocol Capability

    SBC: 3E TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N08T034

    Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology and solutions are proven and capable. However, the cost of the systems limits their immediate use outside of military applications. Beside the cost of the SDR systems, it has been difficult to develop SDR concepts and prototypes on platforms that have clear migration paths to become commercial products. EFJI and Virginia Tech propose to develop a versati ...

  4. Automated Modeling and Simulation Tool for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: VizTek, Inc            Topic: N08T019

    Today’s Warfighter often carries an inordinate load that can lead to injuries and encumbered performance. Equipment is distributed among squad members with little, if any regard for differences in strength and anthropometry. Consequently, the current focus on human-centric design requires a modeling and simulation tool that can reduce the load Warfighters carry and can help distribute equipmen ...

  5. Improved LADAR

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N08147

    Visually degraded environment (VDE) conditions pose a threat to Navy and Marine Corps helicopter by dramatically decreasing pilots’ situational awareness. Brownout and whiteout conditions are especially dangerous. Sensors such as laser radar (LADAR) imaging sensors can see through dust, snow and fog by gating past obscurants, but in order to provide the pilot with imagery that most closely resem ...

  6. Autonomous Persistent Surveillance and Targeting for the Asymmetric Air Threat (APSTAAT)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N07209

    Maritime asymmetric air threat detection begins with an in depth comprehension of the tactical picture. Security lies in the ability to sense threats in all environments. Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS) and Technology Systems, Inc. (TSI) have joined together to propose APSTAAT, a system for autonomous persistent surveillance for the asymmetric air threat. Low, slow flyers are threats to surfa ...

  7. Replacement of Albemet and Beryllium based Materials for F-35 Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: N08128

    Beryllium replacement for the F-35 program is essential in meeting safety, performance and budget concerns for the program. The APS program utilizes its several years experience and existing materials to provide replacements for Beryllium based materials (both Albemet and Beryllium). Significant design and coupon level testing will be f=performed in Phase I to enable potential insertion of new an ...

  8. Modeling and Simulation (M&S) of a Multiple Beam Inductive Output Tube (MB-IOT)

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: N08049

    The multiple beam inductive output tube (MB IOT) will play a vital role as a high-power microwave source to drive the accelerator cavities used in future free electron lasers for military systems. There is a great deal that is still unknown about the complex beam wave interaction inherent in conventional IOTs; their development has largely been a cut-and-try endeavor due to a lack of available mod ...

  9. Fiber Optic Vector Sensor Arrays

    SBC: CHESAPEAKE SCIENCES CORP.            Topic: N07215

    Twinline and vector sensor towed arrays correct the left-right ambiguity inherent in hydrophone systems and offer significant performance and tactical advantages against noisy interferers in a non-isotropic noise environment. A vector sensor array is preferred because it provides similar capability to twinline and uses a single line array versus towing two independent arrays. This difference drama ...

  10. Innovative Techniques of Modeling and Simulation for Commercial Derivative Aircraft Upset Recovery

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: N08005

    The National Transportation Safety Board's accident database reveals that up to 40% of all commercial aviation fatalities are due to loss of control. The military is acquiring commercial-derivative aircraft for certain missions, and will fly these aircraft more aggressively, increasing the potential for loss-of-control accidents. The main options available for obtaining aerodynamic derivatives o ...
