  4. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N19BT030

    The Navy is actively developing a self-sealing, water-activated fuel bladder to mitigate fuel leaks upon mechanical shock (e.g. penetration by a .50 caliber bullet). To circumvent the requirement of an external water source to activate the self-sealing, this system will require water-filled microcapsules that can be incorporated directly into the polymeric matrix of the fuel bladder. Upon mechanic ...

  5. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Semicyber, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    There are numerous ongoing research and development efforts on SansEC technology for applications to enhance warfighter and commercial technologies. Two major SansEC applications of interest are (1) the detection of damage on composite airframes, (2) the measuring of the shape of morphing airframes actively in-flight, and subsequently feeding this information back to a flight control system in rea ...

  6. Terahertz cyber security testing using artificial intelligence (FA-002)

    SBC: Electronics of The Future, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    The focus of this proposal is FA-002 - artificial intelligence (AI), which will be used for the hardware cyber security. AI will link the THz and sub-THz responses at the pins to the defects and deviations from design of the integrated circuits under test. An increasing complexity of digital and mixed-signal systems makes establishing the authenticity of a chip to be a key problem. New rapid, inex ...
