  1. On-The-Aperture Patch Tuning (OTAPT) for Broadband Antennas

    SBC: DYNETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Dynetics proposes the use of On-The-Aperture Patch Tuning (OTAPT) as a potential solution for broadband performance from a low profile antenna. This solution is based on the innovative concept of integration of digital switching of tuning elements directly on the aperture surface. A single patch antenna can then be digitally tuned to successively lower frequencies, modifying the patch dimensions ...

  2. Application of wide Band Receiver Architectures to Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) Specific Emitter Identification (SEID)

    SBC: SenSyTech, Inc. Imaging Group            Topic: N/A

    Specific Emitter Identification (SEID) systems have been implemented using narrow hand receivers with fine grained Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) analysis. The analysis produces a PRI signature on an emitter such that the same emitter is uniquely distinguished from another of the same type, allowing a user to associate an emitter to a specific platform. Using a narrow band tuner for this analys ...

  3. Ultra Low Power SATCOM Transceiver

    SBC: STAR COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Design of an ultra low power satellite transceiver is needed, which is technically innovative in three areas. First, interoperability with non-geostationary satellite systems as well as conventional geostationary systems is proposed, allowing global coverage, very small antenna, large field of view, and near 100% availability even for poorly sited terminals. Second, digital signal processing tec ...

  4. Emerging Outboard Engine Technology

    SBC: Advanced Engines Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    SOCOM needs a new generation of high power density, multi-fuel, lig htweight, compact outboard engines of 30, 55, and 70 HP. Tactical use by special operations forces (SOF) requires they incorporate increased stealth capabilities, be submersible, be simple to set up and operate by one person of limited technical skills, and reliable with minimum maintenance. A weight/size reduction of 50% is des ...

  5. Acoustic Pressure Gradient Imager For Divers

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor has patented technology for a unique process that directly converts a two-dimensional acoustic disturbance, such as a wave front, into an intensity-mapped visible image in real-time without electronic circuitry; that is, it is a direct pressure gradient imager. The imager relies on the piezo-dichroic properties of a continuous layer of a dichroic material thin film that serves as bo ...

  6. Electromagnetic Pulse Mine Countermeasure Device

    SBC: Vail Research & Technology            Topic: N/A

    Naval Special Warfare is developing and testing equipment and tactics for neutralization of anti-invasion mines in the very shallow water maritime environment. The device proposed herein, an electromagnetic pulse mine countermeasure device, will enhance the capability of Naval Special Warfare to neutralize mines. The proposed device is expected to be effective against most, if not all, mine types, ...
