SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT19
The objective of this Phase I project is to evaluate the use of novel Laser Induced Surface Improvement (LISI) techniques to provide surface modification to substrate materials which will provide superior wear resistance in extreme conditions. The specific application of interest is the hypersonic metal-to-metal contact that occurs at high speed test track facilities that can and has lead to catas ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Design Interactive, Inc Topic: AF17AT009
Training can now be delivered on a large scale through emerging platforms, but training must be engaging to be effectively utilized. Key to providing training that makes a difference in the field is an understanding of how to induce high levels of engagement during learning and the ability to objectively assess engagement in real-time so that interventions can be tailored during training to optimi ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SIGNAL SOLUTIONS, LLC Topic: AF18BT013
Adiabatic logic-based energy-conserving circuits have potential to significantly improve energy efficiency. Adiabatic circuits recycle charge stored in load capacitance resulting in lower power dissipation as compared to conventional CMOS. However, these circuits have only targeted low-frequency operations. Research is needed to develop adiabatic logic circuits for high performance applications wi ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF18AT007
Phase I of this effort involves the creation of a comprehensive end-to-end model of a novel holographic polarimeter.The polarimeter that can be constructed based on our model will be able to determine the full polarization properties (Mueller matrix elements) of scattering, reflecting and absorbing media as a function of the materials depth.Unlike previous attempts, this system will be a real-time ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS INC Topic: AF16AT23
Structural reactive materials (SRMs) or multifunctional energetic materials offer the ability to combine the high energy release rates of traditional high explosives with structural strength.When successfully formulated they can lead to light-weight, high-performance and hitherto inaccessible designs of munitions. The key feature of structural energetic materials (SEMs), perhaps even more so than ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation Topic: AF09BT39
This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INNOVATIVE AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES, LLC Topic: AF08T014
Our team proposes to develop, test, and commercialize a Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery APparatus (MAVTRAP). This system operates by deploying an instrumented MAV capture device attached via a tether system from a mothership unmanned air vehicle (UAV). The instrumented MAV capture device contains an integrated avionics suite. Our team will determine and control the precise mother ship UAV loi ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SECURBORATION, INC. Topic: AF17BT004
Securboration is proposing to build a prototype tool called CRATE - Cyber Risk Assessment for Threatened Environments, which will take as input mission requirements and run-time transactions, and produce a mission-centric threat map (as opposed to network-node-centric which most COTS tools do) during execution. It will trace the run-time behavior of various processes in the system that expose thos ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SECURBORATION, INC. Topic: AF17BT004
Cyber Risk Assessments for Threatened Environments (CRATE) is a system that produces actionable, mission-level alerts when anomalous behaviors indicative of cyber-attack are discovered within deployed mission-critical cyber-systems. CRATE is particularly relevant to deployment scenarios involving third-party infrastructure, such as deployment to a Platform as a Service (PaaS) provider or other clo ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
Modeling Auditory Pattern Recognition and Learning with Gradient Frequency Neural Oscillator NetworksSBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC Topic: AF09BT12
This Small Business Technology Transfer research project addresses the perception and learning of complex sound patterns within complex auditory scenes. The objective is to model auditory signal processing, pattern recognition and learning in the human auditory system. Our novel approach simulates the nonlinear signal processing that has been observed in auditory physiology. By mimicking functiona ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
