  1. Volume Independent Analytics for Discovery of Unseen Correlations via Tensors (VIADUCT)

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: AF171048

    This Phase II effort continues development of Volume Independent Analytics for Discovery of Unseen Correlations via Tensors (VIADUCT). VIADUCT leverages recent advances in tensor decompositions as a form of unsupervised discovery and the proliferation of open source Big Data tools to address the lack of advanced analytics available to Air Force Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) analysts. This effo ...

  2. Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) for Moderate Data Rate Communications (MMDR)

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF171043

    The Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is designed to replace UHF SATCOM with enhanced capacity and performance, modern crypto and modern protocols. The MUOS waveform is being ported to a number of software defined radios (SDRs) that will soon be fielded and capable of utilizing the MUOS network of geosynchronous satellites and ground transport. Once these radios are in place, the process of movi ...

  3. Non Destructive Trusted FPGA Verification

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF171068

    Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) can provide electronic system designs with a high degree of relatively inexpensive customization. Unfortunately, the fabrication facilities are located in untrusted facilities. This prevents their use in applications requiring a high degree of safety or security. Hidden functionality could potentially be inserted during manufacture. These Trojans can be used ...

  4. Computational Corrosion Modeling for Condition Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+) / Aircraft Environment Tracking

    SBC: Adirondack Analytics            Topic: AF171095

    The Corrosion Rate Enabled Wash Cycle Updating Technique (CREWCUT) is designed to provide a conditioned-based approach to optimize aircraft and support equipment washing cycle practices, which are currently time-based. It is proposed as an enterprise information system that will automatically extract asset usage (e.g., aircraft flight and deployment history), correlate it to data representing the ...

  5. Uniformed Aeroelastic ROM Realization Across Flight Parameter Space for Dynamic Flight Simulation

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF161026

    The technical objective of the Phase II project is to develop the production-ready Dynamic Flight Simulation (DFS) system using the F-15 Saudi as a testbed and validate it with the F-15 Saudi flight test data. The key element in the DFS system is the Reduced-Order-Model (ROM)-based aeroelastic solver with an embedded aerodynamic forces database that is generated by a steady Navier-Stokes solver an ...

  6. Kitware Image and Video Retrieval (KWIVER) Large Volume Motion Imagery (LVMI) Analytics

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    Large Volume Motion Imagery (LVMI) is currently collected in areas of US military operations to provide data for analysis of patterns of life and for forensic analysis of human activity in the form of vehicular track. The process for analyzing LVMI data is primarily a manual one, but the volume of data collected by LVMI sensors has far exceeded the ability of analysts to completely process; typica ...

  7. Manufacturing and Metrology of High Magnetic Permeability Materials for High Efficiency, Wideband, and Conformal RF Antennas

    SBC: Rayn Innovations, LLC            Topic: AF171100

    The critical Air Force need addressed by this effort is the enabling of high efficiency wideband (and ultrawideband) communication in a compact (conformal) form factor that minimizes (or eliminates) penalties of drag and structural reinforcement associated with conventional airborne antennas. Wideband multi-function antennas are the ideal solution to the congested spectrum problem and could lead t ...

  8. All-Fiber Optical Isolators for High Energy Lasers

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF171108

    Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. An isolator is necessary between fiber amplifiers in order to maintain stable operation. We propose to develop and optimize all-fiber isolator using our proprietary Faraday rotation fiber with high Verdet constan ...
