SBC: Five Focal LLC Topic: AF12BT06
ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NUTRONICS, INC. Topic: AF12BT13
ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC Topic: AF19AT008
Large ground-based telescopes require adaptive optics (AO) to correct for distortions introduced by atmospheric turbulence. In order to function, the AO system must track a bright point source. Although a natural star may be used, full sky coverage requires an artificial beacon created with a laser. The most common type of laser guide star (LGS) employs the mesospheric layer of sodium atoms at an ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CARBON TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: AF18BT006
The proposed work aims at detailed investigation of Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistor (CNTFET) device design and its impact on Radio-frequency (RF) circuit performance in comparison to Si-MOSFETs and related circuits at the same channel lengths. The goal is to establish a geometry scalable CNTFET compact model for RF circuit design and determine its parameters based on characteristics from b ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INNOSENSE CORPORATION Topic: AF18BT003
This project will address the U.S. Air Force needs for single-piece, electronically dimmable eye protection device (EDEPD). In Phase I, InnoSense LLC (ISL) will demonstrate feasibility of the approach by incorporating electrochromic layer on curved polycarbonate substrates. Phase I tests will include optical and physical characterizations regarding transmission range, switching speed, haze, unifor ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF12BT02
ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corporation and the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) are proposing development and feasibility demonstration of advanced algorithms for the detection of vibration signatures in scattered light. The algorithms are being developed for applications including space-based electro-optical (EO)/infrared (IR) sensing at high frame rates and extremely low signal-to-n ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SOUTH 8 TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Topic: AF19AT014
The team at South 8 Technologies is the first to develop a novel and patented Liquefied Gas Electrolyte chemistry for rechargeable lithium metal batteries which meets these Air Force requirements. The proposed non-hazardous chemistry has already demonstrated world-record performance on the lithium metal anode (99.9% plating/stripping efficiency over hundreds of cycles) while maintaining high perfo ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Cardiac Motion, LLC Topic: AF19AT003
Vital sign, such as respiration rate and heart rate, provide important indications of the physiological and mental conditions of an Airman. Being able to understand the physiological and mental conditions of an operator is therefore of vital importance to improving the efficiency and efficacy of future Air Force operations. Current state-of-the-practice in continuous cardiopulmonary vital sign mon ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: VULCAN WIRELESS, INC. Topic: AF18AT010
This proposal will outline a bi-directional software defined Free Space Optics (FSO) laser communications testbed with flexible optical elements and reprogrammable waveform and signal processing elements. Vulcan Wireless Inc. currently manufacturers a 1550nm, eye safe, software defined Laser Communications Testbed MD-LC-1 and will use this as a basis for the Phase 1 effort. We will also be teaming ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SPECTRAL IMAGING LABORATORY Topic: AF12BT03
ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. Smaller versio ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
