  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  2. Maintaining Satellite Coverage in Uncertain Operational Environments

    SBC: CODA LABS LLC            Topic: AF191073

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to develop a distributed algorithm embedded with capabilities of verifying and localizing coverage hole in a satellite (i.e., sensor) networks without the availability of metric information. Emphasis will be put on developing coverage verification and hole localization techniques for situations where only information about the pairwise relationships be ...

  3. Distributed Deep Learning and Sensing

    SBC: Intelligent Models Plus Inc.            Topic: AF191062

    Compared to current practices of todays processing, exploitation, and dissemination (PED) cycles for fusing the outputs of single-sensor-processing chains during the feature- or decision-level fusion tasks, combining modalities at the data level to learn the target-signatures offers an opportunity to utilize the mutual information among the raw signals generated by the same target. Hence, the auto ...

  4. Optivora

    SBC: QUICKFLEX INC.            Topic: AF191048

    The Air Force has identified a need for a Wireless Instrumentation System (WIS) to supplement or replace the complex, bulky, and inaccessible wired systems that currently reside within aircraft today. The need for connected systems is vital for many critical and non-critical flight systems but the routing is complex and the sensors that are onboard to monitor the aircraft may be located in inacces ...

  6. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Weaver Labs, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    This project aims to develop material that can selectively bind fluorinated contaminants via surface modification of a proprietary material.Specifically, the project will focus on the removal of perfluoocatnoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) which have been widely used for numerous purposes given their unique physical properties.The molecules tend to be both water, oil, and d ...

  9. Progressive Model Generation for Adaptive Resilient System SoftwareDigital Thread Modeling Environment (DTME)

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: N13AT014

    The ability to align Digital Threads (DT) to Digital Twins (DTw) is a critical component required to achieve reduction in total ownership cost of current and future Air Force (AF) programs. The connecting of the DT to the DTw is a key requirement to achieve model-based system engineering. One can view the connection between DT and DTw as the ability to develop robust models of the real-world syste ...

  10. Sensor System for Real Time Observation of High Energy Laser Effects

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: AF191018

    The Air Force has a requirement for a real-time system to monitor High Energy Laser (HEL) damage effectiveness and provide laser hazard assessment.Due to target reflective properties and environmental conditions, HEL effectiveness may be compromised, so operators require real-time assessment to determine if lasing should continue or if other methods should be employed.To keep operators safe, laser ...
