  1. Compact Sub-mm Wave Oscillator for THz Receiver

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: AF181004

    In this SBIR Phase I, HYPRES and University of California Riverside will demonstrate the feasibility of low cost THz oscillators for sub-mm wave receivers utilizing high temperature superconducting (HTS) Josephson junctions fabricated using direct-write helium focused ion beam (FIB). This oscillator that can be easily integrated with on-chip detector with noise temperature ultimately limited only ...

  2. Doppler Scanning Gas Filters (DSGF): A passive sensor solution to global observation of upper atmosphere dynamics

    SBC: G & A Technical Software Inc            Topic: AF182001

    This proposed effort will establish the ability to observe global upper atmosphere dynamics at the vertical and horizontal resolutions required to dramatically advance weather forecasts and predict upper atmosphere turbulence.We show this can be accomplished with simple static thermal DSGF imagers looking in both the limb and nadir.The limb measurements, with a sensor called the Doppler Wind and T ...

  3. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Adaptive Systems, LLC            Topic: AF182001

    General Aviation (GA) accounts for ninety four percent of all aviation accidents with weather being the most lethal factor.Studies have shown these accidents arise because pilots have difficulty screening out non-essential data, focusing on key facts, and correctly evaluating weather related risks.Adaptive Systems LLC has developed a novel framework called WISE: the Weather Intelligence Support En ...

  5. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: ORBITAL MICRO SYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF182001

    Orbital Micro Systems proposes a study on the use of its WeatherLock technology for advanced weather forecasting capabilities for the warfighter. WeatherLock is a novel weather forecasting technology that enables forecasting models to be continuously updated by satellites in near real time. This allows for forecasting errors to be corrected for as the model is running, leading to more accurate for ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
