  1. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  2. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  3. Tunable, Low Mass, Low Loss, Millimeter Wave, MEMS RF Filters

    SBC: AESOP, INC.            Topic: AF05230

    The feasibility of producing robust miniaturized, broadly tunable mm-wave bandpass filters for space applications is discussed. Current work by the authors has demonstrated very high-Q, broadly tunable "Octave+T" resonators in the 1.2 Ghz to 5.0 Ghz frequency ranges. These resonators have been designed using low-risk, conventional fabrication techniques that are ideally suited to making mm- to cm- ...

  4. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  5. Advanced Commercially Available Inherently Radhard Primitive Cell Designs.

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF05018

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Military Satellite Communication (MILSATCOM), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently radhard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes the use of double gated Flexfet technology for ...

  6. Protecting IT Systems From Cyber Attacks

    SBC: CYBER SPK, LLC            Topic: AF05106

    This proposal describes a plan to enhance cyber attack assessment abilities in a way that reduces both the threat to the network and the time it takes to defend it. It will be accomplished by fusing digital forensic data from 4 primary sources and then mining those sources. The data sources will include traditional Intrusion Detection Systems (including IDS/IPS/network management, etc.) and 3 addi ...

  7. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    Taggants are small objects used to label things or people that need to be traced. Synthetic DNA Taggants are ideal for this, since very small amounts can be detected if the sequence is known, and can be disguised by natural DNA in the environment. Known protocols for DNA amplification (e.g. PCR) allow for very sensitive DNA detection, but suffer from disadvantages: the apparatus is not very portab ...

  8. Improved Modeling Tools for High Speed Reacting Flows

    SBC: ENGINEOUS SOFTWARE            Topic: AF05194

    Engineous is uniquely qualified to deliver successful results to the Air Force on this project. Engineous Software is, by far, the industry leader in this area, the PIDO (Process Integration, Design Optimization) space, with over 60% of the worldwide market. Over 250 customers such as Boeing, Lockheed, NASA, Airbus, GE, Pratt & Whitney, and AFRL have achieved success with Engineous Software produc ...

  9. A Novel Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition process for producing RMI/EFI coatings

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05T028

    Though low pressure plasmas have found wide applications in materials processing and play a key role in manufacturing semiconductor devices, operating the plasma at reduced pressure has several drawbacks. Vacuum systems are expensive and require maintenance. Load locks and robotic assemblies must be used to shuttle materials in and out of vacuum and essentially it is a batch process. Also the size ...

  10. Agent Based Computing Machine

    SBC: LEXXLE, INC.            Topic: AF05109

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop an attached processor called an "agent based computing" module (ABC Machine) that is optimized to convert information into knowledge and enable "cognitive computing" for higher understanding. The architecture of the ABC Machine is based upon a concept called "statistical dataflow computing" and it operates in local contexts over string operators. I ...
