  1. 3-D Woven Conformal Antenna Structures

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF05238

    Applied Radar proposes to investigate a new method of incorporating microwave antenna and feed components directly into airframe structural members. This method is based on the 3-D weaving of a resin transfer molded (RTM) fiber reinforcement preform that meets both RF and structural requirements. The result will be lighter weight, higher performance radar and communications antenna arrays for both ...

  2. 3-D Woven Conformal Antenna Structures

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF05238

    New missions require that airborne radars operate at increasing ranges with higher target resolution. This combination necessitates the cost-effective deployment of large apertures while maintaining aerodynamic performance. Externally mounted antenna arrays are not a satisfactory solution due to the large size at low frequencies, for example with UHF foliage penetration radar. Another approach emp ...

  3. A 71 to 86 GHz Digital Communications Transceiver with 5 GHz Instantaneous Bandwidth

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF03208

    A W-band digital communications transceiver will be developed with 5 GHz instantaneous bandwidth utilizing the 71 - 76 and 81 - 86 GHz frequency spectrum recently allocated by the FCC. This project has both military and commercial applications for SATCOM and Point-to-Point digital communications using formats such as 1.25 Gbps and 10 Gbps Ethernet for extremely wideband data and video transmission ...

  4. Advanced Analytic Sonic Boom Underwater Propagation Analysis

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Federal regulations require that USAF supersonic, subsonic and launch vehicle flight operations be assessed as to possible effects to the near-shore environment. Current modeling capability for this topic is lacking in key areas: reliability of results, environmental assessment requirements, field validation, biological nature of the receiver, and accounting for the key interface boundary condit ...

  5. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  6. CAD STATION RM ON-LINE SUPPORT SYSTEM

    SBC: Aquidneck Management Associate            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT OUTLINES A RELIABILITY AND MAINTAINABILITY KNOWLEDGE BASE AND THE HYPERTEXT INTERFACE REQUIRED TO TRANSPORT THIS DATA INTO COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) ENVIRONMENTS. THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF THE PROPOSAL IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FOUNDATION FOR AN ENGINEERING RELIABILITY AND MAINTAINABILITY INFORMATION PRESENTATION SYSTEM TO SUPPORT ELECTRONIC CIRCUIT AND SYSTEMS DESIGN ENGINEERS IN A CAD ...

  7. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    The increased use of sensing systems and large scale networked nodes with a variety of embedded sensors and imagery is creating a plethora of varied data that needs to be fused and interpreted for applications such as surveillance, reconnaissance, and air traffic controls. The need for persistent human analysis with high levels of proficiency is taxing human resources and cognitive abilities. In t ...

  8. COMMAND, CONTROL, COMMUNICATIONS, COUNTERMEASURES MEASURE OF EFFECTIVENESS CONCEPT AND DECISION MAKING TOOL

    SBC: PROMETHEUS INC            Topic: N/A

    THR PRIORITIZATION OF THREATS AND THE PRIORITIZATION OF TARGETS REPRESENT A CRUCIAL ASPECT OF CURRENT AIR FORCE PLANNING. IN A WORLD WHERE THE POTENTIAL THREATS ARE INCREASING WHILE THE AVAILABLE RESOURCES ARE DECREASING , A MODES IS REQUIRED WHICH WILL INABLE THE QUANTITATIVE COMPARISON OF ALL LEVELS OF POSSIBLE TACTICAL AND STATEGIC DECISIONS. WE WILL BEGIN THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH A MODEL DURING ...

  10. Compact Upconversion Blue Fiber Laser

    SBC: Optigain, Inc            Topic: N/A

    We are proposing to develop a novel compact blue fiber laser which overcomes the limitations of currently available lasers. These lasers offer significant advantages over the solid-state and gas lasers that are presently available. Fiber lasers are compact, efficient, widely tunable, and deliver their power in a small core (
