  1. Terahertz Frequency Materials Testing at Cryogenic Temperatures and in High Magnetic Fields

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: Terahertz (THz) spectroscopies offer unmatched non-contact probing of low-energy excitations underlying electronic transport and magnetism in a wide range of novel materials. To-date, expensive and complex THz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) systems are the most common THz source used in these studies. Lower cost, continuous wave (CW-THz) spectroscopy systems can offer comparable per ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Development of a Rapidly Deployable Scaled Fighter for Aeroelastic Research

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF12BT12

    ABSTRACT: Experimental testing of dynamic models has been performed for more than 50 years and a wealth of data exists for individual models. However, this data is often either restricted as proprietary or is not suitable for CSE tool validation as a result of incomplete model or test information. Mainstream Engineering proposes to design, fabricate, and test a scaled fighter for aeroelastic ...

  5. Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) for Directed Energy Phased Arrays

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for an adaptive optics system using a fiber laser array as the spatial phase correction system within the subaperature of an array of discrete telescopes, Optonicus and The University of Dayton propose the development of a new Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) system. The integration of new fiber-array architectures with novel imaging and ada ...

  6. Intra-Subaperture Adaptive Optical (ISAO) System

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...

  7. Coupled Cluster Methods for Multi-Reference Applications

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF09BT40

    The objective of Phase I is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various multi-reference coupled-cluster (MRCC) methods that have been proposed for the description of molecular states depending upon near degeneracies and non-dynamic electron correlation. Such effects are encountered in bond breaking, at transition states, for complex open shell systems like transition metal atoms, and f ...

  8. Terahertz Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: 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 ...

  9. Fast Trajectory Generation in High Fidelity Geopotentials using Finite Elements, Mascons, and Parallelism

    SBC: ANALYTICAL MECHANICS ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF09BT02

    We propose to investigate the feasibility of obtaining fast and accurate trajectories using global geopotential models representing departures from the two-body plus J2 terms. The proposed geopotential formulations and numerical integration methods rely on multi-core processors and the emerging massive parallel capabilities of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) available to common personal computer ...

  10. Enhanced Carbon Nanotube Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: AF09BT05

    The mission of this proposed research is to develop ultracapacitors (also known as electrochemical or supercapacitors) to address an array of military applications. These applications include pulsed power for directed-energy and kinetic-energy weapons, sensors, and power supplies and control systems for aircraft and spacecraft. The proposed innovation employs carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated with p ...
