  1. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The DF&NN team has significant experience in delivering Space Domain Awareness tools. These tools will be applied to 2 years of GEO ephemeris data of active satellites at DF&NN. The RDESB prototype will reduce the risk in rapidly discovering the behavioral patterns of potentially evasive and/or ambiguous active resident space objects. RDESB will detect non-Keplerian behavior in ephemeris data for ...

  2. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta is partnering with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combine Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF electrometer will ...

  3. Resilient Directional Mesh Enhanced Tactical Airborne Networks

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF17BT003

    In this Phase II effort, FIRST RF, partnered with UCSD, will demonstrate array technology enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays. The system expands upon prior SBIR development programs by enabling additional simultaneous full duplex data links by utilizing a novel array topology and beam forming technology allowing for the maximized SWaP solution for the disa ...

  4. Mission and Information Assurance through Cyber Atomics

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: AF17BT004

    Securboration is proposing to build a prototype tool called CRATE - Cyber Risk Assessment for Threatened Environments, which will take as input mission requirements and run-time transactions, and produce a mission-centric threat map (as opposed to network-node-centric which most COTS tools do) during execution. It will trace the run-time behavior of various processes in the system that expose thos ...

  5. Sun-Tracking Millimeter Wave Radiometer

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF17CT01

    The Air Force is seeking solutions for a sun-tracking millimeter wave radiometer to measure atmospheric attenuation over a high dynamic range. The V- and W- bands have rarely been used for space communications and telemetry applications, but rapidly increasing government and commercial bandwidth needs will require future solutions within these bands. Our team, comprised of experienced scientists, ...

  7. Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop and evaluate computational methods for a Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor (VDHWFS).VDHWFS based imaging offers the potential to provide the equivalent of wide field of view adaptive optics (AO) compensated imaging, but without the added complexity of AO components and hardware.Recent result for coherent imaging developed by ...

  8. Volumetric Wavefront Sensing for the Characterization of Distributed-Volume Aberrations

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Modern Directed Energy (DE) missions require target engagements at low elevation angles and long ranges.These engagement geometries require propagation through distributed-volume turbulence. To correct for distributed-volume turbulence effects, an estimation of the turbulence along the propagation path is required. Correcting for these image aberrations will improve the quality of the target image ...

  9. Complex Object Reflectance Characterization System (CORCS)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT007

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop a method for characterization of the full Mueller matrix for reflective scattering from a test object. The Complex Object Reflectance Characterization System (CORCS) will initially be designed for laboratory use and characterization of test objects by active imaging to measure both the Mueller Matrix and the target depth associated wi ...

  10. Non-Linear Adaptive Optics (NLAO)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop an approach for non-linear control of hysteresis and incorporate (if necessary) integrated Multi-Input-Multi-Output real time control with this capability.Our control systems already include a proven high speed real time control approach to determine the optimal set of actuator commands that satisfy inter-actuator stroke limitations.O ...
