SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED Topic: AF08BT18
Digital electronics is approaching its limits in meeting the demand for increased processing speeds. Photonics, while promising high processing speed, is lacking integration capacity. Plasmonics promises to combine the information capacity of photonics with the integration density of electronics. The team of Luna Innovations, UCLA and Virginia Tech proposes to develop plasmonic logic devices and c ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TECHNO-SCIENCES, LLC Topic: AF09BT39
Conversion of sunlight to chemical fuels by artificial photosynthesis has been a long-sought goal. The major goal of the proposed effort is to develop a novel fuel-generating (e.g., hydrogen) photolytic device, which consists of a semiconductor nanowire decorated with metal nanoparticles. The project targets a low-cost technology by fabricating and utilizing the nanowire-nanoparticle conjugate de ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MICROXACT INC. Topic: AF09BT39
Photovoltaics, while promising clean and reliable energy source, is not yet compatible with fossil energy for most applications. Organic-based solar cells have potential to reduce the cost of solar energy due to low-cost active materials, high-throughput reel-to-reel deposition technologies, low-temperature processing and application versatility. Currently organic photovoltaics (OPV) cannot commer ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: GLOBAL CIRCUIT INNOVATIONS INC Topic: AF19BT001
A growing number of electronic applications within the Air Force, such as devices for power conditioning and distribution, RF power amplification, and high power lasers have been identified for increased heat transfer requirements to maintain operational temperatures at acceptable levels while increasing the performance through higher power. However, this same target research that requires increas ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: THE DESIGN KNOWLEDGE COMPANY LLC Topic: AF18BT012
Legacy satellite command and control capabilities and their related telemetry operate in a largely stove piped framework. Satellites are still commanded, controlled, and communicated with their ground station in a specific constellation structure. Each ground station is unique to a given constellation and the communications and telemetry are aligned to the specific constellation, underscoring an o ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: DATA FUSION & NEURAL NETWORKS, LLC Topic: AF17CT02
The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: â€“ unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags â€“ abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and ReconnaissanceSBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT11
Space surveillance is the component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data to track and identify space objects. While the propagation of the states of RSOs has been investigated extensively over the last fifty years, the correct propagation of their covariance or the more general (non-Gaussian) probability distribut ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC Topic: AF18CT001
Research is currently identifying new biochemical markers to help monitor cognition and stress in the human body and enhance human performance. Traditional biometric markers like heart rate, temperature, oxygen partial pressure, blood glucose, electrolyte concentration, and others have been correlated with cognition and stress states. However, the correlation is indirect. Molecular biomarkers with ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION Topic: AF17BT003
FIRST RF will lead the Phase II effort and will leverage the system architecture of the MAINLINE system and integrate multifunctional SiGe integrated circuits (ICs) developed by The University of California San Diego under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Rebeiz. The SiGe devices developed during the Phase II effort will significantly reduce the power requirements of the MAINLINE system allowing f ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: AF12BT09
ABSTRACT: Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to apply a game theoretic approach to design a robust decision making tool for self defense space systems that integrates realistic system models, distributed sensor management, advanced estimation, and tracking techniques. Our approach uses innovative game models to track space objects, analyze their orbits, and provide decision tools for the ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
