  1. Toolset for Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Properties Based on Constituent Materials and Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF182097

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...

  2. Symmetrically Coupled Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers as Optical Quantizer for Photonic Analog-to-Digital Converter

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: AF182105

    Further digital signal processing (DSP) enhancement requires corresponding advances in analog-to-digital connverter (ADC) technology, which is presently limited by conventional electronic approaches. These limitations can be overcome by a series of photonic-based innovations proposed by the IFOS team to realize a photonic ADC (pADC). The innovations are expected to enable highly scaled-up quantiza ...

  3. High-Dynamic-Range Radar

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF182106

    To address the Air Forces needs for a high-dynamic-range (HDR) synthetic aperture radar (SAR)/ground moving target indicator (GMTI) and passive/bistatic radar for detection of small targets in the presence of noise and clutter interference, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Advanced High-Dynamic-Range Radar (HYDRA) that utilizes POC-developed mature components, commercial ...

  4. Low-noise, High-Gain, and High Bandwidth APD for Multifunctional LADAR (LAMDA) Receiver

    SBC: BANPIL PHOTONICS Inc            Topic: AF182107

    The Air Force has a requirement for a high responsivity small pitch multifunctional LADAR receiver for ground, air, and space-based LADAR systems where high-resolution 3D imaging is needed for enhanced situational awareness or navigation. A high gain (>1000), high bandwidth (BW), and low noise (having k-value 1000) @ >300 GHz gain-bandwidth (BW) product, low excess noise (k < 0.02) APD technology ...

  5. Compact High Channel Count High Speed Digitizing, Processing, and Storage System for Synthetic Aperture Ladar (SAL) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)

    SBC: MOSAIX TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF182108

    We propose to develop a novel compact, low power and high performance ladar/radar synthetic aperture data acquisition and processing module optimized for use in external electro-optic airborne pods. By leveraging state-of-the-art low power CMOS semiconductor commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology with a modular and scalable system architecture, we propose to develop a digitizer/recorder/proces ...

  6. Shared-Aperture Polarization-Grating Beam Steering for Attritable Platforms

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF182109

    Beam control for a SWIR 3D imaging lidar which shares an aperture with a forward looking MWIR sensor is proposed. To enable this combined passive and active sensor architecture, polarization grating based non-mechanical beam steering (NMBS) will be investigated. Using the proposed beam control technology will enable the SWIR lidar to track and identify regions of interest within the MWIR sensor fi ...

  7. Quad-Band Antenna Electronics (AE) for Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) Systems

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF182113

    Assured positioning, navigation, and timing (A-PNT) requires constant vigilance against intentional and unintentional sources of coherent and non-coherent interference. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is especially vulnerable to attacks and must be defended through electronic protection (EP) measures such as anti-jam (AJ) and anti-spoof (AS). The proposed effort will investigate the state-of-t ...

  9. Deep Error Prediction

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF183001

    Aret Associates proposes to use recent advances in deep learning to aid operators and analysts currently processing multiple streams of data in real-time, significantly reducing the cognitive burden of human-robot teaming.The black-box nature of Automatic Target and Recognition (ATR) algorithms gives rise to this burden and without meaningful error bounds on these ATR outputs the human operator ca ...

  10. Manned-Unmanned Teaming

    SBC: Volans-i, Inc.            Topic: AF183001

    Volans-I operates a fleet of VTOL, autonomous logistics UAS, capable of autonomous navigation and delivery of mission critical supplies (10-20 lbs) over the horizon and from distances in excess of 500 miles. Their systems are able to conduct fully autonomous deliveries in numerous austere conditions including moving target ship-to-ship operations as well as GPS and communications denied environmen ...
