  1. Next-generation ad hoc networking through joint cognitive routing and spread-spectrum channelization

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF10BT09

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this STTR project is to develop a completely new approach to cognitive joint routing and spectrum allocation that will enable next-generation cognitive wireless networking between space, air, and ground USAF assets. The majority of cognitive radio network proposals rely on the notion of spectrum holes. This proposal will develop a system where cognitive users tr ...

  2. Scalable Aero-Load and Aero-Elasticity Solvers for Massively Parallel Heterogeneous Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: We propose to apply modern massively multicore processors to a key problem area of interest to the Air Force: multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational structural dynamics (CSD) solvers. The capabilities of the CPU to solve these problems have been increasing steadily, but the CPU is still a general-purpose device designed to run diverse applications such as word ...

  3. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  4. High frequency direction-finding system based on high-Tc Ion-Damaged Josephson Junction SQUID arrays

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: The overall goal of this project is to develop a small size, weight and power Direction Finding (DF) system based on SQUID array technology. High sensitivity, linearity, wide bandwidth of SQUID arrays antenna sensors will be enable close spacing of smaller antennas even for HF range. The SQUID arrays will be fabricated using high-temperature superconductor ion damaged Josephson junct ...

  5. Cyber Superiority for Air Force Combatant Commanders: Integrated Air/Space/C2/Cyber Dynamic Spectrum Exploitation for Enhanced Situational Awareness

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF08BT06

    ABSTRACT: This effort is to investigate advanced cyberspace capabilities that can integrate global and theater resources in support of the combatant commander in order to provide operators with robust situational awareness, control of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum, and maneuverability in cyberspace. A prototype spectrum exploitation/control and cyber security capability will be developed for ...

  6. Heterogeneous Integration of Nanomembrane Based Photonic/Electronic Signal Processing Modules

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF08BT08

    ABSTRACT: Crystalline semiconductor nanomembranes (NMs) possess the electronic/photonic properties of bulk material, although they are flexible, deformable, and conformable. Semiconductor nanomembranes offer unique opportunities for novel active/ passive electronic, and photonic devices suitable for vertically stacked high-density photonic/electronic integration. Silicon-on-insulator substrates. ...

  7. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: The potential of scramjet engines for use by the U.S. military would revolutionize countermeasures enabling rapid responses to global hot spots. The scramjet traveling at hypersonic speed cannot use rotary power typically employed at sub-Mach velocities, while auxiliary power units and batteries add weight, volume, and system complexity. Thus, alternative power sources are sought to ai ...

  8. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  9. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: CBD11102

    Hyperspectral imaging systems acquire the spatial and spectral information of the image scene simultaneously, and thus find important applications in remote sensing, military surveillance, and target identification. Most contemporary hyperspectral imaging systems operate at UV/VIS/NIR (ultra violet/visible/near infrared) spectrums. However, in many cases, especially in military applications, (hype ...

  10. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...
