  1. Satellite Structures with Engineered or Variable Electomagnetic Properties

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: AF073102

    A novel methodology is proposed for the integration of low volume fractions (~5% by vol) of high aspect ratio ferromagnetic nanomaterials into structural composite materials, to engineer electromagnetic properties in the microwave regime. The general approach is to disperse the nanomaterial (flake form) in a thermoplastic polymer that is selected to be the same as the toughening agent in the struc ...

  2. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptors for its BMDS. Imaging technology is crucial to this effort for several purposes, including navigation, false-alarm/decoy identification, and estimation of position and speed of potential targets. Although high-resolution imaging systems are readily available, these require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture optics, whic ...

  3. Web Services Rapid Application Assistant

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: AF073025

    We propose to develop an intelligent assistant that enables the rapid creation and use of web services for the warfighter. We will design a web services toolbox, and a web-based assistant built on it, that extends public-domain interoperability technologies with capabilities for dynamic web service creation, tagging services and their history with semantic metadata, and browsing and invoking web s ...

  4. Moded Configuration Management and Validation

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: MDA07040

    We propose to develop Open Service Gateway Initiative (OSGi) enhancements for configuration management and validation to enable assured switching between operational and test modes. We will design a moded configuration management and validation suite that extends public-domain OSGi implementations with capabilities for trusted bundles, XML-based device inventories, and mode switching and configura ...

  5. Vibration Analysis of Rotating Plant Machinery

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: AF073135

    Health monitoring and management of critical machinery is becoming state-of-the-art for military aircraft. Application of advanced health monitoring technology to ground-based plant equipment is an obvious, needed extension. Advanced signal processing algorithms that can analyze vibration signals to identify fault source and severity and track trends of data features is key to efficient maintena ...

  6. Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08135

    Accudyne proposes a SBIR program, endorsed by Sikorsky, Cytec Engineered Materials, and NASA-LaRC, to develop a cost-effective thermoplastic automated tow placement (ATP) process and demonstrate it by fabricating and testing a complex contoured skin (Phase 1) and a CH-53K rotorcraft lower cabin or ramp skin (Phase 2). The process employs in situ consolidation, avoiding the autoclave. The targete ...

  7. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N08122

    Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic are to (1) develop automated reasoner technologies to distill large volumes of PHM data into actionabl ...

  9. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  10. Nano-BiCMOS Night Vision Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08008

    Night vision capability is one of the most important battlefield advantages of the U.S. military, especially in today’s asymmetric warfare. The Gen III night vision goggles in service today is based on the vacuum tube technology with a semiconductor photo cathode, resulting in limitations on view angle, size, manufacturing cost and device operating lifetime. The requirement of special training i ...
