  1. System Design Optimization Model

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: A09192

    Traditional tradeoff methodologies have not permitted an easy, efficient and analytically-based means for trading between traditional survivability areas and other selected non-traditional survivability technology functional areas such as lethality, mobility, situational awareness, blast mitigation and fire suppression, all of which effect vehicle survivability. The significance of having an expli ...

  2. In-situ Stress and Temperature Optical Monitoring for low-cost heteroepitaxial substrates for HgCdTe infrared detectors.

    SBC: k-Space Associates, Inc.            Topic: A09151

    An integrated, in-situ, real-time, optical metrology system will be developed to measure temperature, film stress and reflectivity during CdTe and HgCdTe-based deposition applications. Temperature measurement will be performed using band-edge thermometry and blackbody radiation analysis to provide a measurement range of 25-800 degrees C on Si, GaAs, and CdTe-buffered Si/GaAs substrates. The system ...

  3. APU Silencing Technology Development

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: OSD10EP3

    Auxiliary power units (APU) offer potential to improve operational efficiency and provide significant tactical advantage for surveillance missions conducted from land vehicle platforms. Current installations have resulted in higher than acceptable noise levels, adversely impacting the ability to perform a"silent"watch. In particular, noise created by the combustion process presents a problem due ...

  4. Long-Endurance Power Systems for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: ADAPTIVE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF06180

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are one of the most valuable emerging technologies used to improve the survivability and lethality of our Armed Forces. Current advances in the alternative energy industry have created interest in integrating new technologies into small UAVs. This integration would significantly improve the versatility and endurance of small UAVs. Adaptive Materials Inc. (AMI) is an ...

  5. V- Band Radio Frequency (RF) Filters

    SBC: A. BROWN DESIGN            Topic: AF071222

    This proposal describes a novel implementation of a V-band tunable filter. Preliminary simulations indicate that a 2% bandwidth can be achieved with insertion losses of approximately 1 dB from WR-12 waveguide flange to flange (no de-embedding) and an unoptimized tuning range of 80-85 GHz. Larger tuning range should be achievable. The tuning technology allows for high power handling compared wit ...

  6. Semi-autonomous Local Space Imaging System

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: AF071293

    Aerophysics, together with subcontractor Raytheon Missile Systems, proposes to develop a Local Space Imaging System (LSIS) based on the proven AIM-9X Sidewinder missile gimbaled seeker. The LSIS will combine an AIM-9X-derived imager with an autonomous attitude determination system to provide pointing/tracking/imaging capability independent of host vehicle orientation and without interface with th ...

  7. Physically Small Confetti Antennas for High-Power Directive Applications

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: A07043

    The proposing team has developed an innovative antenna technology called the “Confetti” antenna that is particularly suited to this application, offering potentially revolutionary performance in antenna efficiency, bandwidth, and compactness. We propose to design and optimize a compact “Confetti” antenna for high-power, directive applications. This antenna will have a volume of only 500 ...

  8. A Small Image-aided Navigation And Path-planning System (SINAPS) for Small UAVs

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: A07001

    Due to the limitations and power requirements of modern computational hardware and sensors, the central goals of smallness and high-level autonomy (usually associated with higher algorithmic complexity and computational cost) are directly at odds with each other. Current small UAVs often shed weight through the use of limited sensors and rudimentary algorithms, while very high-level autonomy usua ...

  9. Determination of Human Injury Mechanism, Mechanical Response and Tolerance for Improved Virtual and Physical Biomechanical Test Devices for Vehicle Cr

    SBC: ALBERT I. KING            Topic: A07216

    The objectives of this proposal are to identify the injury patterns and possible causations during military rollover crashes, and to critically review the injury mechanisms, available physical and virtual tests related to military rollover crashes. First, an epidemiological review of the victims involved in military ground vehicle rollover crashes will be conducted to identify the injury patterns ...

  10. UAV – Combat Medic Collaboration for Resupply & Evacuation

    SBC: Veloxiti            Topic: OSD06UM8

    Applied Systems Intelligence proposes to design an intelligent control architecture based on our associate system technology to provide a UAV-equipped medic team the ability to autonomously coordinate activities in a combat environment. In Phase I, ASI will document the specific demands on this type of system, design an architecture that includes associate system software for integrated combat int ...
