Sensor Innovative Research


Wednesday, April 05, 2017

The Electromagnetics Technology Division (RYH), Sensors Directorate (RY), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), is looking to conduct research in the following areas:
1. Antenna Technology - The objective of this research is to advance antenna and electromagnetic technology for air, ground and space-based applications like radar, communications, satellite operations, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems, from VHF to W-Band frequencies.

2. Opto-Electronic Technology - The objective of this work is basic and exploratory development of optical and optoelectronic components, subsystems, and algorithms for space and air image restoration/recognition, multi-spectral detection and tracking, threat warning, countermeasures, missile guidance and high bandwidth communications and data network systems.

3. Electromagnetic Scattering - The objective of this research is to advance the field of detection, tracking, and fusion of data of difficult targets in rapidly varying environments utilizing electromagnetic scattering theory and situational awareness methodologies for characterization of plasma turbulence impacts to hypersonic sensors and Over-the-Horizon radars (OTHR), development of efficient schemes to overcome communication blackout in plasmas, and the development of architectures and algorithms for joint intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, navigation, communications, and situational awareness.

4. Infrared Sensor Technology - The objective of this research is to promote novel sensors, sensor technologies or algorithms for chemical and biological detection and sensing, thermal imaging, solar cells, hyper- and multi-spectral sensing, thermal energy mitigation, and increasing detector efficiency.
