  1. Holographic Radar Signal Processing

    SBC: Chiaro Technologies LLC            Topic: AF10BT29

    ABSTRACT: Chiaro Technologies and the University of Colorado will prove the feasibility and investigate the capabilites, limitations, and extensions of the HOlographic Range-doppler processor for Ubiquitous radar Systems (HORUS) in this Phase II STTR. HORUS encodes the signals from a 1-dimensional RF antenna array onto the broad optical bandwidth of a femtosecond comb laser as pulse compre ...

  2. Hybrid Optical and Magnetic Ultracold Atom Chip System

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: This research focuses on the development of a system for producing and imaging ultracold atoms in optical lattice potentials. Utilizing hybrid magnetic and optical atom chip technology, the system will provide a simple and robust means to perform experiments with optical lattice potentials. This hybrid atom chip approach will also provide high numerical aperture access to the atomic sa ...

  3. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: We will design, fabricate and test a quantum processing unit (QPU) based on a symmetric ion trap chip. The trap will provide trapping depth similar to that obtain with macrosize Paul traps. In addition to the ion trap, this chip will incorporate integrated optical systems which will deliver the light fields required by the elementary quantum processing unit (or quantum sensing unit). ...

  4. Quantum Dot Nanocomposite Based Novel Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT26

    ABSTRACT: Energy harvesting has emerged as a critical need for many current and future Air Force missions to enable their long endurance requirements. Traditional approaches have focused on harvesting solar and vibration (i.e., via the use of piezoelectric materials) energy. More recently, substantial interest has developed in harvesting energy derived from thermal gradients (e.g., due to solar r ...

  5. Space-Time Signal Processing for Detecting and Classifying Distributed Attacks in Networks

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF09BT09

    ABSTRACT: In our work we are developing and applying a mathematical and computational framework for detecting and classifying weak, distributed patterns in sensor networks. Our work demonstrates the effectiveness of space-time inference on graphs, robust matrix completion and second order analysis in the detection and classification of distributed patterns that are not discernible at the level o ...

  6. Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and Reconnaissance

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF09BT11

    ABSTRACT: The correct representation of a resident space object's state uncertainty and the accurate propagation of the uncertainty by way of the Fokker-Planck equation, collectively referred to as uncertainty consistency, is fundamental to space situational awareness and the problems of data/track association (correlation), sensor resource management, conjunction analysis, and anomaly detec ...

  8. High Speed Electronic Device Simulator

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT33

    ABSTRACT: Wireless communications, radar, and biological detection require electronic components operating in the mm-wave and THz frequency ranges. GaAs metal semiconductor field effect transistor and nanoscale CMOS technologies have demonstrated high frequency capabilities and will likely benefit from future material systems and device architectures. The cost of exploring this wide design space c ...

  9. Improved Forecasts of Solar Particle Events using Eruptive Event Generators based on Gibson-Low and Titov-Demoulin Magnetic Configurations

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T602

    Radiation hazards constitute a serious risk to human and robotic space operations beyond Low-Earth orbit. Primary contributors to space radiation include Solar Particle Events (SPEs) associated with Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs). Because the mechanisms that produce coronal mass ejections (CME) are exceedingly complex, no reliable deterministic methods for predicting eruptions are yet available, a ...

  10. Multi Domain Modeling for Space Systems

    SBC: METAMORPH INC            Topic: T1102

    A comprehensive model-based approach will be enabled for space systems design via the work started on Phase I of this project. The OpenMETA toolkit is a cyber-physical modeling tool for the design and virtual integration of complex systems, developed under the DARPA AVM Program. OpenMETA will be leveraged and extended to support NASA/JPL goals for multi-physics, multi-domain modeling, analysis, ...
