  1. RadHard Packaging for Small Satellite Microelectronics

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF182066

    The purpose of this proposal is to develop a process capable of fabricating radiation hardened (RadHard) packages for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) microelectronics used in small satellites. The goal is to fabricate a package that mitigates single event effects and reduce total ionizing dose (TID) and dose rate from space radiation. During the Phase I, Triton Systems proposes to demonstrate the ...

  2. Comprehensive Reasoning ISR Tool for Improved Collections (CRITIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF191020

    To bring the full range of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Intelligence Community (IC) capabilities to bear dynamically and strategically in contested and degraded operational environments, Air Force collection managers will need to look beyond use of traditional intelligence platforms. Collection management is a critical facet of realizing this ISR vision, necessary to ma ...

  3. Portable Laser-Based Analyzer for Trace Metals in Jet Fuels

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF191027

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) based analyzer for trace metal content in aviation or ground fuels.The sensor tool is intended for person-portable field use at fuel depots where a quick and easy analysis may be performed on a milliliter scale fuel sample. Currently, technicians must rely on sending fuel samples to nearby (or distant) l ...

  4. Hydrant Fuel System In-line Aviation Fuel Quality Monitor/Analyzer for Flushing Operational Efficiency

    SBC: D-2 Incorporated            Topic: AF191030

    Fit for purpose fuels are an absolute requirement for successful military operations.Poor physical performance or contaminated fuels can result in the inability to fulfill critical military missions.Monitoring fuel quality to determine the success of hydrant system flushing, or other processes intended to displace contaminants is key to insuring in specification fuel is delivered to the aircraft f ...

  5. HyFli- Hydrant Fuel System In-line Aviation Fuel Quality Monitor/Analyzer for Flushing Operational Efficiency

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: AF191030

    The Air Force conducts monthly fuel system flushing operations in its constant-pressure closed-loop hydrant systems to remove unwanted solids, water, and microbial contamination.This is a time-consuming and manpower-intensive process without clear specifications to indicate successful completion. To improve hydrant flushing activities, FTL Labs proposes HyFli (Hydraulic Flushing Imager), a new sen ...

  6. Additively Joined Arbitrary Size Scramjet Engine Ducts

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF191067

    The Air Force requires large scale scramjet engines but current fabrication methods have long lead times, high part rejection rate, and great expense. PSI will address these shortcomings by developing an Additive Manufacturing (AM) plus brazing process that allows duct segments to be jointed together into large-scale scramjet assemblies.PSIs method makes it possible to combine cooled metal panels ...

  7. Nonmixing, Rapid-escape Airlock

    SBC: LaunchBay LLC            Topic: AF191023

    Airlocks are used to isolate a clean area from a surrounding contaminated environment. Current airlock designs employ inefficient doors and require a large volume of air to flush the contaminants from the airlock. There is a need for an innovative airlock design that enables a faster passage time without compromising the cleanliness of the protected shelter. This project seeks to address the need ...

  8. CMA-RHINO Collaborative Mission Autonomy for Resilient Highly Integrated Networked Operations

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF191073

    Swarms and constellations of satellites are envisioned to support a new paradigm in military operations, with hundreds or thousands of interconnected assets delivering new capabilities. An autonomy architectural paradigm for multi-asset operations shall be able to act in a responsive manner without the need for ground intervention.Defining an architectural and algorithmic approach to enable fully ...

  9. Midwave/Longwave Infrared Detector with Electronically-Tunable Narrowband Spectral Response


    Adaptive midwave infrared (MWIR 3-5 m) and longwave infrared (LWIR 7-12 m) multispectral target imaging is a critical enabling technology for Airforces missions in target sensing, detections, identification, discrimination from its background, and trajectory determination. However, current existing technologies cannot fully satisfy the Airforce mission needs. This SBIR project aims to develop a ne ...

  10. HERMIONE: Human-awarE Reasoner for Multi-modal Interactive Operations in Networked Environments

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF191021

    Data collection capabilities for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance continuously improve, generating more data, faster, and across an ever-increasing spectrum of modalities than can be handled by human analysts alone. While personal digital assistant technology has emerged in the commercial domain to support the basic and consistent needs of their users, it is a challenging proposition ...
