  1. Technology to Enable Rapid Application of Laser Propulsion

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: AF05T001

    The objective of the proposed research and development effort is to conduct the basic research that is necessary to populate a matrix of validated design inputs for future flight systems. The research effort will demonstrate the feasibility of laser propelled systems with greatly simplified hardware and improved performance. This will be accomplished through application of an advanced propellant ...

  2. Miniature High Density Scandate Cathodes For Linear Beam Devices

    SBC: E BEAM INC            Topic: AF07T030

    This proposal describes a program for an improved impregnated dispenser cathode. It will first seek to verify and understand recent improvements in scandate cathodes by workers in China.To do this, it will conduct tests on these cathodes and it will study composition and fabrication procedures. Based on this, scandate cathodes of similar composition will be fabricated and tested. They will be i ...

  3. METAD: Monitoring Entites for Trend Analysis and Data mining

    SBC: Fetch Technologies            Topic: AF07T018

    We propose to investigate methods for building METAD, a system for monitoring trends in order to identify entities that are suspicious or deviate from past or normal behavior. Our system will leverage our existing EntityBase technology, which provides the means to consolidate references to entities collected from disparate data sources. The system will first use trend analysis to find entities t ...

  4. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: FUTURE TEK USA CORP.            Topic: AF05T024

    Permanent magnet materials with high energy product of (BH)max = 30 MGOe at 450°C are needed for advanced Air Force power and weapon systems, which represents a 150% improvement in magnetic performance. Owing to the degree of difficulty this objective is unlikely achievable if using any existing permanent magnets, such as conventional high temperature SmCo5, Sm2Co17, or nanocomposite Sm2Co17/Fe- ...

  5. Multifunctional Design of Load Bearing Antenna Structure for Small UAVs

    SBC: GENEVA AEROSPACE, INC.            Topic: AF05T019

    Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAVs) have demonstrated their value in military Surveillance, Reconnaissance, and Intelligence operations as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). While small UAVs have demonstrated their value in the warfighting environment, their size, weight, and power constraints limit their mission footprints to video surveillance or high band (GHz) communications. Lower ...

  6. Diamond Studded Micro Helix TWT


    The radical design proposed here essentially reinvents the venerable helical TWT. The cathode, electron gun, slow wave circuit, output coupler and collector would all be significantly different from current conventional practice. This is not innovation for the sake of novelty. Without radical changes, the physical limitations of the conventional helical TWT, which is the work horse of lower fre ...

  7. Segmented Co-Polymer for Alkaline Fuel Cell Membranes

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A07T016

    Alkaline fuel cells (AFCs) have many advantages over proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) including more rapid electrode kinetics, ability to use non-noble metal catalysts, and the ability to use lower cost materials of construction. AFC drawbacks include the use of a liquid electrolyte such as concentrated KOH that can introduce problems such as the formation of insoluble carbonates, resu ...

  8. Training Soldiers to Decode Nonverbal Cues in Cross-Cultural Interactions

    SBC: GLOBAL ASSESSMENT LLC            Topic: OSD07T004

    The overall objective of the proposal is to generate guidelines for the conceptual design of an interactive, computer-based training tool to improve Soldiers' ability to decode nonverbal cues and behavior in multiple channels (i.e., vocal tones, gestures). The tool will assist Soldiers to exhibit effective cross-cultural communication skills and prepare them to interpret and predict behavior more ...

  9. Software System Reliability Analysis

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP4

    Reliability is a crucial characteristic in safety-critical systems, yet it can only be measured late in the software development process when changes are difficult and costly. We propose a framework for estimating the risk of software that can be applied early in the software development life-cycle. This framework will use 21st century source code metrics--derived from advanced static analysis a ...

  10. Deobfuscating tools for the validation and verification of tamper-proofed software

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD06NC5

    Recently, there has been an increase in the use of anti-tamper techniques (e.g., obfuscation) in all types of software. However, applying anti-tamper techniques is technically challenging, and when applied to large, sophisticated software, there is a danger of introducing subtle bugs, or not introducing sufficient protection. The existing state of anti-tamper technology is undesirable in that it ( ...
