  1. Electronically Tunable Narrow-Band Infrared Focal Plane Array Based on the Quantum-Confined Stark Effect in Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: AF182068

    Spectral imaging in the infrared enables cameras to not only detect objects in the scene, but also provide information that can be used to determine their chemical composition. Variations in emissivity can be exploited using spectral imaging to improve contrast and object detection. In addition, certain spectral bands can be exploited to reduce visual degradation caused by dust and weather obscura ...

  2. Compound semiconductor bypass and blocking diodes with improved temperature and radiation performance

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF182069

    In this Phase I program we will demonstrate the feasibility of building high-performance diodes for space arrays using compound semiconductors. Wider bandgap materials offer not only higher breakdown voltages using thinner device structures, they also enable substantially improved high-temperature performance and enhanced radiation resistance. We will first carry out a trade study using advanced d ...

  3. Integrating the ALE3D Hydrocode with MEVA and Endgame Framework

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF182086

    The goal of this effort is to develop seamless integration between MEVA and Ale3D for high-fidelity modeling of penetrator performance, and lethality/vulnerability assessment. The approach proposed will enable inclusion of arbitrary physics-modeling capabilities as plugin extensions to MEVA utilizing Illinois Rocstar's in-house physics coupling software IMPACT and meshing software NEMoSys. Illinoi ...

  5. High Performance Quad Band GNSS Digital Anti-Jam Electronics (QBDAE)

    SBC: Bedford Signals Corporation            Topic: AF182113

    The Air Force is seeking the development of an Antenna Electronics (AE) for a Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) system that provides an anti-jam (AJ) capability covering four GNSS frequency bands. Existing AEs can provide simultaneous protection of L1 and L2but a navigation system utilizing L5 and E6 as well would improve satellite visibility, be more resistant to spoofing, and more robu ...

  6. Medical Monitoring, Diagnostics, and Triage

    SBC: Nomo Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: AF183004

    NoMo Diagnostics is developing the first embedded brainwave sensor system for real-time concussion detection addressing a significant unmet medical need for contact sport athletes and military personnel. Sport-related concussion is a common mild traumatic brain injury affecting roughly 1,200,000 Americans annually yet only 300,000 are diagnosed. Depending on the sport, it is estimated for every 1 ...

  7. REAL TIME ACQUISITION OF CHEMICAL THREAT MATERIALS AT CLOSE PROXIMAL RANGES

    SBC: BOTANISOL ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: AF183005

    Our ability to respond to new chemical and biological threats is limited by a lack of facilities, personnel, and equipment able to rapidly conduct precision molecular analysis. We can remove this bottleneck by deploying a protective network of new automated, high performance surveillance equipment around ordinary warfighters and civilians for the first time. Sensitive enough to detect all manner o ...

  9. An Advanced Illumination System for Military Aviators

    SBC: FIRST-LIGHT USA, LLC            Topic: AF183005

    Improved cockpit illumination has been identified as an area of interest during discussions with key personnel across United States Air Force and Navy Aviation communities. Current cockpit lighting systems are expensive and require the use of a lip-actuator to illuminate an NVIS-compatible light emitting diode (LED) located on a microphone boom or on the oxygen mask, which is attached to the fligh ...
