  1. Plasmonic Beamsteering

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF103164

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop a plasmonic beam steering device based on annular metallic array including electro-optically active materials. The proposed device will be designed to work either in the visible or near infrared (NIR) regimes, depending on the geometrical dimension of the metal structure. We will exploit field localization and surface plasmon generation/propa ...

  2. Plasmonic Beamsteering

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: AF103164

    The plasmonic beamsteering device proposed by EOS Photonics to meet the requirements of the present SBIR topic is an evolution of the plasmonic collimators developed at Harvard University. It includes several novel components and design improvements that will augment the capability of the original technology. In particular, we will use electro-optic materials in conjunction with plasmonic nanostru ...

  3. Establishing and Maintaining Trust for an Airborne Network

    SBC: REAL-TIME INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: AF103165

    Fast, efficient distributed computing enables more capable aircraft avionics. However, distributed systems face distributed threats. These threats can only be countered with a distributed trustworthiness architecture that measures and enforces trust across a network. We propose to a) create a method for attaching a trust index to each node in a real-time network, and then b) enforce communicati ...

  4. Airborne Network Trusted Code (Assurance) Involving the Anti-Access Environment

    SBC: EDAPTIVE COMPUTING INC            Topic: AF103165

    ABSTRACT: Advances in communication, computational capacity, and sensing systems have provided unprecedented capabilities to generate, process, and communicate vast amounts of information. Utilizing such a complex network for effective situational awareness requires a high level of trust in the data that is ultimately produced. Critical to this goal is ensuring the trustworthiness of the compone ...

  5. Trusted Architecture for Airborne Networks

    SBC: WW TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC            Topic: AF103165

    Next generation systems are increasingly network centric and reliant on collaborative data exchanges to perform critical functions. In order for these networked systems to meet their mission objectives and provide decision makers with timely and accurate information the assurance levels and trustworthiness of the systems and the data they provide must be evaluated. These complex entities are oft ...

  6. Methods for interfacing broad bandwidth data links to airborne ISR systems

    SBC: EDAPTIVE COMPUTING INC            Topic: AF103166

    Sensors making use of the Common Data Link (CDL) are generating more information, thus taxing the capabilities of available spectrum for the relay of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance information. We will define new sensor-to-link and link-to-sensor interface models, which will provide the capability to perform"what-if"analysis on parametric models impacting latency and bandwidth. The ...

  8. Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Based Electronic Components for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

    SBC: Aneeve            Topic: AF103167

    We will undertake a Phase I study of CNT FET radio frequency devices for Low-Noise Amplifiers (LNA), Power Amplifiers (PA) and RF switches towards enhancing the reliability and efficiency of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Existing UAS electronic systems are bulky and inefficient (electrons operate in the diffusive transport regime). It is well defined that the key limiting factor of CNT RF tran ...

  9. Unknown Wireless Network Discovery

    SBC: BASCOM HUNTER TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF103168

    The primary focus of this proposed effort development of methods to allow for ultra fast wideband RF sensing and classification of unknown RF devices. In order for cognitive radio methods and techniques to be implemented substantial improvement in sensing and classification of non-cooperative RF devices must be addressed. The team is proposing a comprehensive approach that first provides ultra f ...

  10. Unknown Wireless Network Discovery

    SBC: AZURE SUMMIT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF103168

    The evolution of RF communications from legacy radios to newer software defined radios that utilize dynamic spectrum access and cognitive radio technologies presents an emerging problem to current electronic warfare systems. These technologies will be employed by ourselves and also by our adversaries. Rogue networks may try to mask their presence by exploiting software defined radios to mimic a ...
