  1. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Large ground-based telescopes require adaptive optics (AO) to correct for distortions introduced by atmospheric turbulence. In order to function, the AO system must track a bright point source. Although a natural star may be used, full sky coverage requires an artificial beacon created with a laser. The most common type of laser guide star (LGS) employs the mesospheric layer of sodium atoms at an ...

  2. Mid-Infrared Laser Absorption Spectroscopy for Multi-Parameter Rotating Detonation Analysis

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF19AT011

    New, innovative laser spectroscopy technology will be developed for performance quantification and combustion characterization in a Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE). The effort will push the state of the art in tunable laser absorption spectroscopy to enable fast time response diagnostics of the extreme pressure and temperature conditions of an RDRE.

  3. Synthetic Scene Generation for Wide Application including High Performance Computing Environments

    SBC: STELLAR SCIENCE LTD CO            Topic: AF19AT007

    We will deliver a new software architecture for scene generation named the Realistic Image and Neighborhood Generator (RING). Instead of being tied to a single tool, RING will provide interfaces suitable for a wide variety of image and scene rendering tools to run and interact with other codes. As an initial implementation of the interfaces, we will incorporate Stellar Science’s powerful, f ...

  4. Biological Microdosimetry System

    SBC: Quinc.tech Inc.            Topic: AF18AT001

    The Biomagnetics Micro Dosimetry System (BMDS) program will design, model, and simulate a microdosimetry system that can measure and create a three dimensional map of weak radiofrequency signals in biological organisms. The heart of the BMDS project is the front end that delivers very sensitive, broad band measurements with high spatial resolution. The front end is a valuable tool in the investiga ...

  5. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    To meet the requirements of the AF18A-T015 solicitation, MaXentric and University of California San Diego are proposing the development of a low loss, high linearity capacitor. The tunable capacitor target is a compact integrated design, capable of a tuning range up to 4:1, with a minimum Q of 80 at 4 GHz, and handling up to 20W CW. During phase I, UCSD studied a novel varactor structure to improv ...

  6. Virtual Reality for Multi-INT Deep Learning (VR-MDL)

    SBC: Information Systems Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT010

    Recent advances and successes of deep learning neural networks (DLNN) techniques and architectures have been well publicized over the last several years. Voluminous, high-quality and annotated training data, or trial and error in a realistic environment, is required to achieve the promised performance potential of DLNNs. Unfortunately for DoD and/or Intelligence Community (IC) applications of mult ...

  8. Nanomaterials-Enabled Electrochromic Eye Protection Device

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: AF18BT003

    This project will address the U.S. Air Force needs for single-piece, electronically dimmable eye protection device (EDEPD). In Phase I, InnoSense LLC (ISL) will demonstrate feasibility of the approach by incorporating electrochromic layer on curved polycarbonate substrates. Phase I tests will include optical and physical characterizations regarding transmission range, switching speed, haze, unifor ...

  9. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: – unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags – abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...

  10. Verification and Validation of Algorithms for Resilient Complex Software Controlled Systems

    SBC: XL SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF17CT05

    This effort seeks verification tools and techniques to ensure safety and stability of spacecraft Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GN&C) algorithms, particularly the attitude control system integrated with autonomy software. Advanced control algorithms and autonomy are increasingly necessary to enable responsiveness of fleets of vehicles to attitude constraints and object avoidance. Verus Researc ...
