  1. Fast Updatable Large-area Holographic Display

    SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF08T001

    Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording material system without the use of high voltage. We have ...

  7. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  8. Innovations in Physical Modeling and Statistical Exploitation of Electromagnetic Target Signatures

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...

  9. Compact, Low-Cost THz Test System

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: There has been a growing interest and increased R & D activities in applying THz technology to biomedical, security, communications and science/manufacturing imaging, etc. However, even with all these research activities, there are very limited choices of test and measurement instruments in the THz range. Despite wide availability of RF/microwave (below THz) and optical (above THz) netw ...
