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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force

Tau Technologies is teaming with Dr. David Voelz and his research group at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to propose â€œVibration Imaging for the characterization of extended non-cooperative targetsâ€�, which employs dual-pulses in two different variations for vibration imaging in order to characterize non-cooperative targets at extended standoffs. One method is based on double-pulse ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force

Efficient design, build, and test of an HEL system leverages modeling and simulation (M&S) to reduce cost and increase robustness. Designers use models to explore parameter variations and to estimate performance in conditions which cannot be tested due to physical or financial constraints. This provides significant savings in cost and time. Because live testing is so expensive, it is best used as ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force

Military applications for CBRNE/GWTO and C4ISR require R&D for materials to protect personnel and equipment. However, challenges remain in experimental synthesis and characterization of new materials, such as providing insight into observed properties for further advancement. Thus, it is essential to develop a predictive modeling and simulation approach that will not only provide a fundamental u ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force

ABSTRACT: It is well known that wind turbine clutter (WTC) presents a significant challenge to detecting targets in civilian and military applications. The large radar cross section (RCS) of wind turbines, combined with their significant range of Doppler spread, make traditional clutter mitigation techniques effectively useless. The objective of this Phase I effort is to develop a physically con ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force

ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to develop innovative methods for deriving a sparse set of physical target features that can be used for exploitation of air to ground signature data collected from sensor systems including electro-optical, infrared, and laser radar. Current classification methods require near exact replication of the original imaging parameters, or extensive modeling in ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Topic: AF09BT22
The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF18BT004
Wave-optics simulations are critical tools for analysis of laser directed energy systems. The primary method for conducting these simulations is to evaluate the Fresnel diffraction integral using the angular spectrum method based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT). While FFTs are considered computationally efficient, their use in the Fresnel integral results in difficult grid constraints includin ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF19AT005
Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system. Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target. In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction. Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillate ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC Topic: AF18CT001
Research is currently identifying new biochemical markers to help monitor cognition and stress in the human body and enhance human performance. Traditional biometric markers like heart rate, temperature, oxygen partial pressure, blood glucose, electrolyte concentration, and others have been correlated with cognition and stress states. However, the correlation is indirect. Molecular biomarkers with ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
