  1. High-Frequency Energy-Deposition Actuators for Effective Scramjet Control

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF121191

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic propulsion systems, such as supersonic combustion ramjets (scramjets) are generally expected to operate from Mach 3.5 up to Mach 7-8 and are designed for specific flight Mach numbers to achieve optimum performance. However, realistic flight vehicles will experience a wide range of flight conditions during a typical mission. These off-design flight conditions degrade the perfo ...

  2. Laser-scopic Approach to Identify, Remove and Clean Galvanic Couple Corrosion in Difficult to Access Areas

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF131192

    The proposed effort will investigate and develop a laser-scopic tool that will provide earlier and improved capabilities for corrosion-detection, -removal, -cleaning and -repair due to galvanic couples in hard-to-access areas, without damaging the underlying substrate or adjacent features. The key focus areas include system definition, power-delivery, mitigation/elimination of splatter and debris ...

  4. Space-based RF Emitter Detection and Localization Using Field Programmable Gate Arrays

    SBC: Rincon Research Corporation            Topic: AF141124

    Satellite communications are increasingly vulnerable to radio frequency (RF) jamming due to availability of satellite operations information and reduced RF equipment cost. The Air Force seeks a trade study into how a constellation of 5-kg, 10x10x30-cm CubeSats can be used to detect and geolocate RF transmitters operating in the satellite X/Ku/K/Ka/Q frequency communication bands. RRC, together wit ...

  5. Optical System for Precision Atomic Clocks and Stable Oscillators

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141126

    Ultra-stable and accurate frequency and timing devices such as atomic clocks are essential for modern communication, navigation, surveillance, and missile guidance systems. There are many atomic oscillators such as neutral calcium and neutral ytterbium that produce clock signal in optical domain. However, these optical standards are expensive and not widely available. The phase stabilized frequenc ...

  6. Affordable E-band Radiation Hardened Mixed Mode Microelectronics

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF141192

    Analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are necessary for many applications, including sensors, hardware based radio station, wireless systems, instrumentation, and power. These applications are often used in harsh environments which magnify the difficulty of designing complex ADCs due to the fact that ionizing radiation and even a single ionizing particle can generate charge in the semiconductor cir ...

  7. Development of Novel and Emerging Technology for the Enhancement of Fault Diagnostics

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: N132144

    The critical navigational precision of the nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine fleet is based on the aging Electrostatically Supported Gyroscope Navigator (ESGN). The increasing frequency of repairs and increasing Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) for ESGN systems have potential to affect mission readiness. Ridgetop Group proposes an Expert Troubleshooting Action System (ETAS) to reduce mean time ...

  8. Advanced Radiation Hardened Data Converter Architecture

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N132145

    Silicon Technologies Inc. (STI) proposes to develop a data conversion architecture using radiation hardened ADC and DAC converter technologies. The circuit topology will be based on a fully differential, redundant SAR ADC which utilizes three high speed comparators to enable single clock conversion at 25MHz with 14 bit data conversion. The circuit design will be based on previous research sponsore ...
