  1. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF182001

    Accurate and timely weather information for situational awareness is critical to the success of Air Force missions.To date, space-borne sensors for weather forecasting primarily include visible, infrared, and microwave instruments.While visible and infrared sensors have reached a high level of maturity and performance, those operating in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum continu ...

  2. Force Protection C-sUAS

    SBC: URSA, Inc.            Topic: AF182003

    Significance: The asymmetrical and rapidly evolving threats posed by autonomous systems must be countered by tools capable of reducing the asymmetry and evolving with, and ideally ahead of, the threats. Accurate forensic analysis integrated with effective intelligence gathering, analysis, and sharing can prevent attacks before they occur, addressing part of the asymmetry. Developing tools, and the ...

  4. Machine Learning applied to Measurement Assessment

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF182019

    The goal of the proposed program is the development of a machine learning tool that will automatically detect errors and contamination in radar cross section (RCS) measurements at an outdoor test range.This tool will exploit recent advances in machine learning by training a deep learning neural network to extract sophisticated sets of features, which can be adapted to reveal subtle patterns in the ...

  5. Efficient Transduction for Shock-Loaded Bond Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF182093

    Composite airframe designs benefit significantly from incorporation of adhesive bond joints rather than metal fasteners. Adhesive bonds can be exceptionally strong and light, but require careful process control to form. To rely on such joints, both the Air Force and commercial manufacturers require a non destructive test method to verify the quality of as-built joints. The only known test is shock ...

  6. ANGRIBRD: ANGR for Intelligent Binary Runtime Defense

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF182104

    This project will investigate the use of offensive binary analysis techniques to extract data from program binaries for use by a runtime diagnostic engine capable of malware detection and response. The open-source Angr framework provides the basis for the tools used to collect the analysis data needed to support a diagnostic engine. A diagnostic engine capable of using these collected results will ...

  7. Circuit Card Replicator for Verifying Interface Test Adapters

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF182017

    Form and fit between an Interface Test Adapter (ITA) and the circuit card assembly is critical to maintaining stable electrical connections. Faulty, intermittent connections lead to failed tests, incorrect diagnoses, and costly debugging. Tying up the circuit card assembly for ITA development, however, is not desirable and often not possible.Creare proposes to create a system to scan and 3D print ...

  8. Upper Stage Rocket Engine with Pressure Gain Combustion for Improved Performance and Reduced Cost

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF182060

    The performance and core technology of upper stage engines has changed little in decades. Additionally, the cost of these engines adds substantially to the launch vehicle cost. New, higher performance, lower cost engines are needed to dramatically reduce launch vehicle costs. Pressure gain combustion is a new type of engine cycle that offers the potential to dramatically increase the efficiency of ...

  9. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...

  10. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...
