Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)SBC: SA Photonics, Inc. Topic: AF15AT13
ABSTRACT: Digital binocular helmet-mounted display (HMD) systems are now available that allow high resolution wide field-of-view (WFOV) digital imagery to be displayed on high resolution microdisplays. These digital HMD systems require a low-latency embedded vision processor (LLEVS) capable of implementing the necessary image processing algorithms. An SA Photonics LLEVS will be implemented on next ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
High Speed Electronic Device SimulatorSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT33
ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate a software package based on coupled Fokker-Planck (FP) - Fermi Kinetic Transport (FKT) models and full-wave Maxwell electromagnetic (EM) solver to accurately predict semiconductor device behavior from dc up through the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. The FP model provides accurate non-equilibrium occupation functions for hot electrons with real ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Embedded Sensors for Flight Test (Every Aircraft a Test Aircraft)SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc. Topic: AF14AT01
ABSTRACT: Two accelerating trends in military aircraft design and development are apparent: (1) increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, guidance, navigation and control (GNC), etc., enabled by ever-smaller and evermore capable electronics; and (2) reduction in overall size and available space for auxiliary equipment (and associated wiring, etc.) to measure and asse ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket EnginesSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT21
ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
High-Sensitivity Monolithic Silicon CMOS APD and ROICSBC: Freedom Photonics LLC Topic: AF14AT13
ABSTRACT: In this effort, Freedom Photonics will develop a high-sensitivity high-resolution coherent imaging system based on a Si avalanche photodiode (APD) array and corresponding bias and read-out electronics. This will be a monolithic APD and ROIC (readout-integrated-circuit) focal plane array (FPA) system. We start from a proven high-performance CMOS electronics backplane and build the photon ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) SensorsSBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc. Topic: AF15AT40
ABSTRACT: Analysis and Applications and Associates, Inc. (AAA) proposes to develop software that evaluates effects of the hypersonic flow environment on electro-optic/infrared optical systems and vehicles for specific hypersonic flight profiles. We propose a high fidelity definition of the near-field flow, using the latest CFD and turbulence modeling technologies, to determine the environment from ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Spectrum Sensing and Sharing by Cognitive Radios in Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) SystemsSBC: Innoflight, Inc. Topic: AF15AT23
ABSTRACT: The next-generation Global Positioning System (GPS) in congested and contested environments is expected to exploit Spectrum Holes (SH) in order to provide uninterrupted Position Navigation and Timing (PNT) service worldwide. Innoflight has teamed with the Air Force Institute of Technologys (AFITs) Autonomy and Navigation Technology (ANT) Center to develop a system based on cognitive radi ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex SystemsSBC: PARASIM, INC. Topic: AF14AT07
ABSTRACT: In this proposal, a team comprising ParaSim Inc. and the University of Utah will examine the feasibility of generating curved high-order meshes from hybrid linear meshes while retaining a given boundary geometry. Specifically, a preliminary design of a software package for creating high-order (up to 4th order and higher) hybrid-element meshes for complex geometries will be developed.
