SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: AF14AT09
ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting the external surface of manned and unmanned low-observable (LO) aircraft are time consuming and error prone. Technology that can reduce inspection times and minimize human error will benefit the Air Force by significantly increasing aircraft reliability and availability while reducing lifecycle maintenance costs. To address this need, Intelligent Automat ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF14AT16
ABSTRACT: This proposal presents an Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) upgrade scheme using smart antenna and cognitive satellite radio techniques. On the remote tracking station (RTS) side, switched beam smart antenna, distributed beam forming technique, multiple access technique based on FDMA and/or CDMA are applied to obtain multiple satellites reception objective. On the satellite si ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF14AT17
ABSTRACT: In this proposal a Game-theoretic Universal Anti-RFI Defense (GUARD) framework for Satellite Communications is proposed. Key components of the GUARD framework include i) Radio Frequency Interferences (RFI) modeling and impact evaluation infrastructure, which allows the evaluation of the impact of RFI from various sources, and provides a comprehensive RFI knowledge base to SATCOM; ii) RF ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC Topic: AF15AT34
ABSTRACT: Future conflicts in contested environments will require coordination between teams of manned and unmanned platforms performing ISR tasks. Coordinating ISR tasks is much more challenging in these contested conditions as GPS cannot be reliably depended upon. Consider the ISR task of handing off a tracked target from one platform to another. Reliably performing this task requires at a mini ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Applied Research LLC Topic: AF15AT27
ABSTRACT: Our main objective in this project is to propose a novel Structured Sparse Priors for Target Recognition (SSPTR) system and to demonstrate that discriminative applications such as data clustering or target detection, tracking, and classification can be solved effectively and directly on the compressed measurement domain without the need to recover the original data. Our proposed sparse-r ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: POLARONYX INC Topic: AF13AT03
We propose a new fiber WDM fabrication method for single mode high power fiber laser. Our new approach will enable kW operation for both single mode fiber WDM and PCF WDM. In Phase I, a proof of concept experiment has been demonstrated. In phase II, we will target at delivery of a reliable prototypes for both step index fiber WDM and PCF WDM.STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: EXQUADRUM INC Topic: AF15AT39
ABSTRACT: Exquadrum, Inc. proposes to develop an innovative multi-mode power generation system for hypersonic flight vehicles. This system produces the required power output that the flight vehicle demands, independent of the flight characteristics at the time. However, this system will work in conjunction with the propulsion system to augment the power generation capabilities. This is accomplishe ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
A Range Segment Upgrade for Air Force Satellite Control Network with Smart Antennas and Cognitive Satellite RadiosSBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY LLC Topic: AF14AT16
ABSTRACT: A range segment upgrade for Air Force satellite control network (AFSCN) will significantly improve system effectiveness via spectrum sharing and seamless interoperation. However, the upgraded system requires new capabilities such as real-time and accurate RF interference detection and mitigation, array antenna backlobe/sidelobe suppressions, accurate performance degradation prediction, ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: HYPERCOMP INC Topic: AF14AT07
ABSTRACT: We propose here a robust production-level high-order mesh generation software for complex geometries. High order accurate numerical methods are becoming increasingly popular in the present time and have demonstrated a great measure of success in efficient error-controlled simulations for a wide variety of important problems. A curved geometry and mesh generation system is essential in m ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES INC Topic: AF15AT22
ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose a Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS) for on-demand turbulence suppression and control of ionospheric RF propagation. The system uses a lightweight, throttleable directional mechanism for controlled production and dispersal of artificial plasma into the space environment. MVICS relies on three innovations: a nove ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
