Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-159
Budget: 04/29/05 - 09/30/11

In future designs of penetrating weapons, there is a need to provide a bi-directional communications link between the surface and the penetrating weapon. We call this concept the Penetrator Data Link (PDL). We describe a Phase II effort to further design, develop, and test a shock-hardened prototype of a multi-channel, CDMA, spread-spectrum dat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-206
Budget: 06/18/04 - 06/17/06

This proposal describes a robust wireless communications and power transfer link between a submarine missile control system and weapons encapsulated in submarine launch tubes. Our approach is based on electromagnetic induction. Here we propose a Phase II SBIR project that will use finite element modeling, communications modeling, and an prototyp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-159
Budget: 04/30/04 - 10/30/04

On current Air Force penetrator weapons, hard-target smart fuzes in the tail receive information from sensors in the nose. Future weapons are expected to incorporate additional sensors, which will greatly increase the data available, to more than 250 kilobits per second, which must be transmitted through the earth to a surface receiver or to an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-060
Budget: 07/28/03 - 04/28/04

The goal of this effort is to develop and assess user interface designs including, displays and other collaboration aids, to reduce cognitive load and to improve distributed C2 decision making and overall performance in complex team environments. An ideal test-bed for our approach is the Predator Squadron Operations Center, or P-SOC, initiative...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-152
Budget: 04/01/03 - 04/01/05

This Phase II SBIR proposal describes the continuation of our Phase I effort to develop a hardened and robust method for communicating between two locations within a hard-target penetrating weapon. Our approach uses resonant electromagnetic (EM) fields to eliminate hardwired physical links that are often severed by the tremendous shock loads ex...
