  1. Aimpoint Maintenance of Ground Targets by Airborne Laser Systems

    SBC: STOCHASTECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF131014

    ABSTRACT: Laser-based directed energy systems are often identified as being game-changing technologies in advancing the mission of the Air Force. Precision efforts, minimal collateral damage, rapid response, and nearly unlimited ammunition are compelling advantages to laser weapon systems. Among the primary challenges to development and deployment is beam control, identified in the 2007 report ...

  2. EDA for Strategic Radiation Hardened Precision Analog IC Obsolescence Mitigation

    SBC: MILANOWSKI & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF131057

    ABSTRACT: This proposed program leverages mature semiconductor TCAD and EDA tools. These tools are widespread in modern analog IC design and already possess capabilities applicable to obsolete part replacement. Our plan for detailed R & D activity emphasizes tool adaptations/improvements for simplifying, automating, and accelerating the overall design retargeting task, the application of radhard- ...

  3. W and V band Airborne SATCOM Transceiver

    SBC: QUINSTAR TECHNOLOGY, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF131061

    ABSTRACT: The proposed work is to develop a high integration, single transmit, multiple receive, digital beamforming, airborne SATCOM transceiver. This can be accomplished by using advanced GaN technologies for the transmitter SSPA and InP technologies for the receiver LNA. Furthermore, we propose to integrate most of the receiver functions (e.g. the LNA, mixer, etc.) on a single InP chip. This w ...

  4. High Efficiency Space Infrared Data Compression

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF131070

    ABSTRACT: Space based Infrared (IR) system generates massive amount of IR surveillance data, which strains the limited communication bandwidth, storage and computational resources onboard space or airborne platforms. This poses a great challenge, especially as the spectral and spatial resolutions of sensors keep increasing and more of the sensors are deployed. In this project, UtopiaCompression ( ...

  5. High Resolution ADC on an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (HRADC-ASIC)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF131073

    ABSTRACT: Performance of space-based digital control systems is limited by the low resolution of available radiation-hardened Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) and Digital to Analog Converters (DACs). Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to develop a High Resolution ADC on an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (HRADC-ASIC) that provides: Up to 16-22 bits of resolution with corre ...

  6. Radiation Hardened Carbon Nanotube-based Nonvolatile Memory

    SBC: NanoScale Storage Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: Data storage onto Phase Change media with 22nm bit cells is proposed, providing 1Tb (threshold) and potentially 1TB (objective) data capacity in a one square inch memory chip. The chip will be designed for spaced based operation, radiation hardened, low power, and able to operate over the required temperature range with sub 10ns access times. The chip consists of an array of 200x200 Nan ...

  7. Ultra-Scalable Nonvolatile Graphene Memory

    SBC: Harper Laboratories            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: The physical scalability of Si based nonvolatile memory is problematic for the terascale integration of space memory. In particular and with regards to Flash, this problem is two-fold as device designs breakdown and photolithographic patterning approaches its limits to minimum feature size. Whereas phase-change and ferroelectric polymer devices have shown promise to scale beyond Flash ...

  8. Radiation Hardened Graphene based Nonvolatile Memory for Space Applications

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: This Air Force Phase I SBIR program would develop and demonstrate radiation hardened graphene based nonvolatile memory(NVM) for space applications. Specifically, we would combine advances in resistive memory materials, including graphene and graphene oxides, with the careful manipulation of metal ion, oxygen vacancy or other charge transport in graphene based materials, to realize the r ...

  10. High Efficiency Low Weight W-Band PolyStrata Antenna

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: N132087

    Nuvotronics is proposing to Navy SBIR number N132-087 to develop novel high efficiency, light weight, low manufacturing cost 94 GHz antenna modules toward future Active Denial Technology systems. RF passive components based on waveguides are generally very low loss but are heavy, expensive to machine at high frequency and bulky. Components based on substrate material such as ceramic or printed cir ...
