  1. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Cook, Ashton Robinson            Topic: AF182001

    Exploitation of weather and climatological information has historically provided significant (and at times decisive) advantages for Air Force and Department of Defense missions (e.g., WWII, 2003 Iraq, etc.)Current and short-term (0-7 day) and climatological (long-term average) weather information near the geographic locations of missions have often been the basis for these operations.However, a cr ...

  2. Attachable Jamming Module for C-sUAS

    SBC: Invisible Pack, Inc.            Topic: AF182003

    This proposal describes a very short-range jamming module that attaches to AF Security Forces Remington 870 model shotguns to augment their performance with the ALS skynet round.The module makes the threat drone 'freeze' long enough for effective deployment of the net round.This module can be used with any C-sUAS weapon or platform deploying ALS net rounds. It can also be mounted onto a pistol gri ...

  3. High Energy Laser for C-UAS

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF182003

    Both commercial and military laser systems can be effective but have limited applicability for counter unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS). Commercial lasers are underpowered and unsuitable for military environments, while military lasers are too large, heavy, and expensive for tactical applications. In Phase I, we will assess the feasibility of modifying commercial lasers for C-UAS applications. Th ...

  5. Interference Mitigation and Anti-Jamming for UAS Using Spiral Modulation

    SBC: Astrapi Corporation            Topic: AF182005

    Astrapi proposes to apply a fundamentally new physical-layer communication innovation (spiral modulation, SM) to address several key challenges for Air Force Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). SM has the potential to dramatically increase spectral efficiency, enabling Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) wins such as smaller antennas and reduced signal power for the same communication performance. SM-based h ...

  6. QML-V Qualification of rad-hard ARM Cortex-M4 Microcontroller

    SBC: Silicon Space Technology Corporation            Topic: AF182005

    We are currently designing a next generation radiation-hardened MCU based on the ARM Cortex-M4 CPU. The MCU was defined in response to requirements that were gathered from a significant number of US Government and commercial aerospace customers who are familiar with VORAGOs existing VA10800 rad-hard MCU based upon the ARM Cortex-M0. Our objective is to qualify the radiation hardened ARM Cortex-M4 ...

  7. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: AF182005

    Aircraft maintenance is critical to Air Force readiness. However, the 2014 drawdown and the retiring workforce have led to a shortage of maintainers and a skill and knowledge gap. To maintain high levels of readiness, innovative solutions are needed to accelerate the development of a junior maintainers to expertise while also leveraging the expertise and know-how of senior personnel. Design Intera ...

  9. Digitizing and Automating Standard Operating Procedures

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: AF182005

    The Air Force relies on standard operating procedures for operating and maintaining complex systems or equipment. Examples include operating constellations of satellites, checking out an unmanned air vehicle (UAV) before flight, or performing maintenance on an aircraft. Industries also operate and maintain complex equipment such as oil rigs and chemical refineries using procedures. In many cases, ...
