  1. Manufacturing and Metrology of High Magnetic Permeability Materials for High Efficiency, Wideband, and Conformal RF Antennas

    SBC: Rayn Innovations, LLC            Topic: AF171100

    The critical Air Force need addressed by this effort is the enabling of high efficiency wideband (and ultrawideband) communication in a compact (conformal) form factor that minimizes (or eliminates) penalties of drag and structural reinforcement associated with conventional airborne antennas. Wideband multi-function antennas are the ideal solution to the congested spectrum problem and could lead t ...

  2. Additive Manufacturing of Freeform Optical Elements for Imaging System Weight and Volume Reduction

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF171101

    Freeform optics is a recent, emerging and developing field to meet the increasing demands created by the high performance and ultra-compact optical imaging systems that underpin consumer and medical applications, such as mobile phones, head mounted displays, and ultrathin endoscopes. Additive manufacturing will be an ideal method to prototype freeform optics if surface quality specifications can b ...

  4. All-Fiber Optical Isolators for High Energy Lasers

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF171108

    Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. An isolator is necessary between fiber amplifiers in order to maintain stable operation. We propose to develop and optimize all-fiber isolator using our proprietary Faraday rotation fiber with high Verdet constan ...

  5. A Low-Toxicity, Non-Pyrotechnic, High Yield Visible Smoke Material

    SBC: Ventana Research Corporation            Topic: A17059

    Novel, non-pyrotechnic white smoke formulations will be developed during this effort.Upon aerosolization, these polymers will react with both ambient moisture and nitrogen present in air; producing smoke exhibiting significant obscuring power within visible and NIR spectral regimes.

  6. Near Real-Time LIDAR Processing and Exploitation Algorithm Development

    SBC: Rincon Research Corporation            Topic: A17143

    Todays advanced LiDAR systems typically lack the ability to autonomously detect man-made shapes and structures and provide that 3-D data to Geospatial Intelligence quickly and effectively to aid in tactical decisions. Rincon Research Corporation (RRC) presents its solution to this problem through the design and development of algorithms that perform onboard Automated Feature Extraction (AFE) and/o ...

  7. Air Platform Passive Occupant Protection

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: A18001

    Body flailing during a severe helicopter crash can lead to injury or death when the head and upper torso strike rigid objects within the flail envelope.Currently fielded restraint systems allow a large flail envelope because the strap routing and anchor positions require some body motion to occur before the straps can develop significant reaction loads.Safe, Inc. (Safe) is proposing an alternate d ...

  8. Spall Liner Energy Attenuating (EA) Material Development

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: A18084

    Occupants of ground combat vehicles are at risk of head injury when the vehicle is attacked by an underbody blast and its violent motion causes the head to strike the interior.Occupants are also at risk from spallfragments of material liberated from the interior wall of the vehicle by shock waves or overmatched threats.Vehicles currently have interior liner panels for spall mitigation but lack ade ...

  9. The Internet of Things for Body Area Networks

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: A16070

    The proliferation of smartphones and BLE technologies over the past 5+ years has created the perfect environment for the explosion of the IoT. These same technologies can be exploited in a tactical military environment to collect soldier biometric data for analysis and assessmentand potentially other types of sensor data (terrain, CBRNE detection, electronic warfare, etc.) for enhanced situational ...

  10. Low-Loss Commercial Deposition Technology for Thick Ferrites and Ferrite/Insulator Films on Printed Circuit Boards

    SBC: Rayn Innovations, LLC            Topic: A16020

    Spray-plated ferrites are of interest for two reasons, they exhibit the highest magnetic conductivity among ferrites and are manufactured at low temperature (90C). The low temperature manufacturing method uses an in-situ process compatible with other microwave integrated circuit processes and printed circuit boards. Integrating these disruptive technologies would lower the cost, volume, and enhanc ...
