Plasmonic Infrared Scene ProjectorSBC: TRUVENTIC LLC Topic: AF17AT022
Truventic proposes to design, build and characterize a 5x5 array of fully functional MEMS-based plasmonic infrared scene projector pixels which operate at multiple wavelengths to support hardware-in-the-loop testing of missile seekers, forward looking IR cameras (FLIR), counter measure simulation and tracking systems. The approach avoids known limitations of resistive arrays and provides high dyna ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene ProjectionSBC: Plasmonics Inc. Topic: AF17AT022
As both the response speed and sensitivity of thermal imagers have improved significantly over recent years, new IRSP systems are needed to provide greater dynamic range and faster response speeds. Addressing these issues, as well as producing a cost effective and modular IRSP system will be critical for providing quality scene projection for the next generation of infrared imagers. To address the ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Portable Bioprinted Organoids for Physiological MonitoringSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF19AT002
hazardous chemicals such as JP8, chromium, and byproducts of led-free frangible ammunition and to hazardous environments. Of the many dangers Airmen face, the hypoxia-like unexplained physiological events pilots face are some of the most dangerous and elusive. Current wearable sensors cannot decouple complex, interdependent in vivo response. We propose to develop (design, fabricate, test, and demo ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
Room Temperature Quantum MemorySBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION LLC Topic: AF19BT001
Quantum computer technology is so critical and strategic that the Air Force Research Laboratory is itself working on a quantum bit focused on the trapped ytterbium (Yb+) ion. The current technology based on entangling electrons, photons, or ions are challenging to put together in multiple qubits. To make a qubit stable, it is essential to protect it from outside interferences that can disrupt the ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
Small UAS compatible Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) SensorsSBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc. Topic: AF18BT009
Proposed herein are novel design methodologies to create sensors for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and/or explosive (CBRNE) detection aboard a Small Unmanned Aerial System (SUAS), as well as intelligent Bayesian-based plume analysis and source detection algorithms that offer capabilities for the Air Force above and beyond the state of the art. The assembled technical team of experts ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
Terahertz Focal Plane ArraysSBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The Topic: AF09BT33
Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Ultrahigh Efficiency Quantum Dot Multi-photon Photovoltaics using Nipi Lateral ArchitectureSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT20
Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth AtmosphereSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF08T019
The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, real gas effects, nonequilibrium chemistry, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with automatic domain decomposition for a wide range of Air Force applic ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
