  1. SWAT- Scalable W(R)ubber through Advanced Technology

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Opportunity: Guayule, a US native plant, is the only alternate rubber crop with an established, mechanized, agronomic system. Problem: Low rubber yields and lack of effective resin and bagasse coproduct valorization, have prevented widespread adoption by American farmers and processors. Rubber is only made when the cytoplasmic monomer pool (isopentenyl-pyrophosphate; IPP) is larger than that requi ...

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

    SBC: FLIGHTPROFILER, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    RADAR (and similar direct or observational meteorological measuring equipment) has limitations (inability to measure low vis conditions,line-of-site, limited vertical (z-axis), expensive/heavy equipment is required, etc.).To solve these limitations, a Purdue University team (launched via a SBC called FlightProfiler) has developed a technology that delivers a computer generated X-Y-Z environmental ...

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

    SBC: GhostWave Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    The proliferation and capabilities of hobbyist off-the-shelf drone systems poses a direct and immediate threat to U.S. national security. This proposal is a cUAS system to track unwanted UAS in the vicinity using stealthy radars that are AJ. The project will start with an understanding of customer needs and how we can adapt our proposal to best meet the needs of the Air Force.

  4. Ultra-Wideband and Full Duplex Radio

    SBC: Novaa Ltd            Topic: AF19BT001

    High-speed and reliable tactical communications have empowered the Air Force with overwhelming information superiority, and control of the battlespace. However, the effectiveness of such systems has been impacted by the increasingly congested and contested spectral environment, compounded by the reliance on half-duplex systems. The latter rely on time- or frequency-division to separate transmit an ...

  7. Bandwidth Constrained Electronic Warfare

    SBC: Radial Research and Development Ltd.            Topic: AF191061

    This proposal describes a hybrid detection, classification, and localization (DCL) system capable of detecting, classifying, and localizing radio frequency (RF) emitters in challenging scenarios involving limited visibility, measurement error, limited pulse observations, dense RF background, ambiguous emitters, and unknown/out-of-library emitters. The remote nodes are centrally controlled to acqui ...

  8. Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power Generation

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...
