  1. Conformal Antenna for Application to Jamming of IEDs

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF083147

    The proposed program addresses the need for conformal and wideband antennas for ground and air vehicles primarily for support of J-CREW applications. FIRST RF has developed and produced a very novel wideband antenna that has been fielded on US Army, US Navy, and US Marines vehicles. The proposed program leverages this technology with three ongoing areas of research at FIRST RF: efficient wideban ...

  2. Wideband,Lightweight, Beamformer

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF081031

    Narrow beam electronically scanned phased array antennas play a vital role in many defense communications, radar and EW systems.  However, because of the cost and complexity of the constituent components, as well as the typical array manufacturing processes, phased arrays still remain prohibitively expensive for all but the most vital applications.  FIRST RF Corporation has recently developed a ...

  3. Active Defense Against Code Injection Attacks

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD09IA1

    The threat posed by remote cyber attacks has grown every year, with nation state attacks being the hardest to detect and blunt. A common cyber attack method against remote systems is the code injection attack, where the attacker finds flaws in a remote application then forces the application to execute injected code. Code injection attacks can give the attacker unlimited access to the attacked sys ...

  5. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...

  6. Low-Cost Deorbiting System

    SBC: M.M.A. Design LLC            Topic: AF083198

    Development of a mechanical de-orbiting system that can be attached to a DoD satellite asset as part of the initial mission planning can provide a means to safely and cost effectively de-orbit a satellite once it has completed its mission or if a de-orbit is required due to a failure of a key system or instrument.  The fact that all satellites will fail over time leads to the need to de-orbit the ...

  8. Next Generation Ultra-linear Super High Frequency/Extremely High Frequency (SHF/EHF) Solid State Power Amplifiers

    SBC: Innovative Technology, Inc            Topic: AF083155

    Future military satellite communications systems will have higher signal capacities by employing complex modulation schemes in channels that are closely spaced in frequency (21MHz). Nonlinearities in the terminal electronics, particularly power amplifiers, cause spectral regrowth, where by extraneous power from one channel interferes with signal from adjacent channels. As a result, communication d ...

  9. Space Threat Objective and Resource Management System (STORM)

    SBC: Intelligent Software Solutions            Topic: AF083220

    AFRL has performed basic research in Space Situational Awareness (SSA) for many years.  With the successful execution of multiple programs during the past two years, AFRL has become the de facto center of mass in the SSA development community. To provide a more complete Defensive Counterspace (DCS) system, AFRLs portfolio of SSA capabilities must be extended to provide Resource Management (RM) fu ...

  10. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...
