  1. High-Sample-Rate Analog-to-Digital Converters

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SB153004

    Thanks to the availability of downscaled CMOS devices, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) implemented in these faster CMOS technologies have achieved increasingly efficient conversion rates in the GS/s range. However, given the reduced linear dynamic range, these scaled CMOS technology nodes require extensive calibration to compensate for transistor mismatch and threshold-level variations. This n ...

  2. ASP Motion Base for Stabilized Mounts

    SBC: FLEX FORCE ENTERPRISES LLC            Topic: A12079

    The ASP family of stabilized weapon mounts is ideal for use in airborne, shipboard, and land applications when platform stability significantly reduces gunner effectiveness. The ASP three axis gyro stabilized weapon mount is designed to dramatically increase gunner accuracy (>10x increase in hit probability) even during aggressive platform maneuvers. The ASP is the ideal solution for coastal patro ...

  3. Multi-Wafer-Stack Three-Dimensional (3D) Interconnect Manufacturing Technology

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N153130

    There is a longstanding need for a reliable, low-cost manufacturing method for assembling and electrically interconnecting high-density 2.5-dimensional and 3-dimensional multi-wafer stacks, including those composed of dissimilar materials and transistor technologies. However, many of the transistor technologies used in defense electronics are not compatible with the modern, full-wafer back-end-of- ...

  4. Covert Fiber-coupled Eye-safe Laser Rangefinder for Photonic Masts

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N161033

    A compact fiber-based low-power miniature laser rangefinder (LRF) will be developed and shown to provide superior ranging performance within the demanding size, weight, and power (SWAP) requirements of existing and planned photonics masts, such as found on Virginia- and SSGN-class submarines. The LRF includes a 6-ns pulsed 1-mJ miniature laser, a temperature-compensated avalanche photodiode (APD) ...

  5. CAVES: Cryptographic Analysis, Verification, Exploration, and Synthesis

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: N161058

    Developing secure cryptography to meet the constraints of a given application is currently a difficult, time-consuming, and error-prone process. Recent research suggests, however, that the work of evaluating the security of cryptographic algorithms, and of exploring the security tradeoffs of alternative designs within a general class, can be at least partly automated. We propose to build a compreh ...

  6. Fiber Reinforced Aluminum Crack Repair for Aluminum Structures


    Touchstone proposes to incorporate its MetPreg fiber reinforced aluminum material into a concept for bonded-on repairs to cracked aluminum ship hulls and superstructure. The method would not require logistics beyond that which is normally available to ships force or entail the use of materials with short shelf life. MetPreg has been shown to arrest cracks in 7xxx series aluminum compact tension sp ...

  7. Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design Methods for Compact Optical Transceiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15AT001

    To meet the U.S. military needs for hardened laser-ranging sensors for munitions applications, a compact, high-repetition-rate, high-pulse-energy laser rangefinder will be developed consisting of a temperature-stabilized avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver, with a few photons equivalent sensitivity, and a miniature diode-pumped microchip laser. An existing integrated circuit design will be updated ...

  8. Phase II: Correct-by-Construction Synthesis for Multi-Vehicle Autonomy Missions

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: The kinds of capability advancements we anticipate include scalable support for multi-vehicle scenarios with concurrent executions, timing and synchronization constraints, heterogeneous sets of specifications, and fault tolerance. The tool development will focus on an open-source software package that integrates with AFRL's AMASE multi-vehicle UAV simulator. The software package aims (i) ...

  9. Prattle: Deceiving Intruders with Beguiling Noise

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF151029

    Prattle offers an unprecedented ability to aid in both limiting the time between security breach and detection, as well as limiting their effectiveness during this period. To do so, Prattle generates realistic traffic that is intentionally designed to mislead the adversary, and tempt them in directions that make them more detectable. For example, Prattle can generate false web requests, to disguis ...

  10. Research Tool to Support Hybridized Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF151135

    The availability of diverse feedstock materials with tunable properties and additive-manufacturing equipment capable of fabricating complex, multi-functional structures will allow the U.S. military to produce components with properties tailored to local needsat reduced weight, cost, and schedule. Realizing this goal requires improvements in both additive-manufacturing equipment and materials.To ac ...
