  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor Phase 2

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Through the execution of our Phase 1 effort, Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University developed an improved means to optimize the Pellizzarri cost functional for coherent imaging using digital holography. Our algorithm developed during the Phase 1 effort accelerates convergence times by a factor of 20-40 for the majority of scenarios evaluated. Our proposed Phase 2 effort has a two-fold focus: ...

  4. Carbon Nanotube FET Modeling and RF circuits

    SBC: Carbon Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT006

    Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CNT field effect transistor (CFET) is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear am ...

  5. Learner Engagement and Motivation to Learn Assessment and Monitoring System

    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 ...

  6. High Precision Remote Cardiopulmonary Monitoring through combined iPPG and Low Power Radar

    SBC: Cardiac Motion, LLC            Topic: AF19AT003

    Vital sign, such as respiration rate and heart rate, provide important indications of the physiological and mental conditions of an Airman. Being able to understand the physiological and mental conditions of an operator is therefore of vital importance to improving the efficiency and efficacy of future Air Force operations. Current state-of-the-practice in continuous cardiopulmonary vital sign mon ...

  7. Lasers Based on Gas Filled Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: IRFLEX CORP            Topic: AF18BT015

    Current continuous wave (CW) and pulse mid-wave infrared (MWIR) lasers have design and performance limitations that constrain their usability in some critical Air Force applications. There is an important need to create a new class of MWIR laser sources with less drawbacks and higher pulse energies and CW powers. The proposed work will demonstrate the technical feasibility of an innovative MWIR la ...

  8. Environmentally-Compliant Inorganic Material(s) for Corrosion and/or Wear Protection of Structural Metals on Military Aircraft and Weapon Systems

    SBC: Innovative Technology Inc            Topic: AF15AT31

    The proposed project will focus on qualifying amorphous-iron Particle Reinforced Metal Matrix Composite (PRMMC) coatings as replacements for Electrolytic Hard Chrome (EHC) and HVOF WC- Co wear and corrosion resistant coatings on high-strength steel components. These legacy coatings have been identified on the OSD Emerging Contaminants Watch or Action Lists, and future manufacture and maintenance o ...

  9. Efficient and Faster Methods for Performing General Wave-Optics Propagation

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18BT004

    We will develop hybrid wave propagation approach that implements FFT and EMA (Efficient Matrix Algorithms) propagators in a fashion that is transparent to the user but insures the highest efficiency and accuracy for a given propagation problem. We will develop rules to decide which propagation approach is ideal for a given situation. The propagation algorithms will be coded in Vulkan/CUDA and C++ ...

  10. 3D imaging for tracking and aim-point maintenance in the presence of target-pose changes

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT005

    We propose a three-dimensional imaging approach based on digital holography. Our approach is based on frequency diversity using a single chirped pulse instead of a train of pulses with different frequencies. Our approach promises to mitigate most of the issues limiting the performance of current methods and offer additional enabling capabilities that will improve target identification and tracking ...
