Award List:

Applied Chaotic Signal Processing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Ted W. Prison
Award Amount: $49,047.00
Abstract:
Chaotic signal processing techniques treat signals as geometric objects in a multidimension state space. We have developed a processor for chaotic signals that incorporates several novel ideas. We propose to use this processor to analyze real signals and use the results as a starting place to… More

Chaos In Distributed Systems?

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Ted Frison
Award Amount: $92,302.00
Abstract:
Is chaos present in any significant real distributed system? We don't know. We will use our commercial grade toolkit for chaotic data analysis to see if chaos is present is some distributed systems. Our toolkit incorporates all the relevant methods for detecting and analyzing chaos. The remarkable… More

Exploiting Chaos to Improve Signal Detection

Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Ted W. Frison
Award Amount: $68,942.00
Abstract:
We propose both a new metric for assessing the efficiency of compression algorithms and a novel compression technique that preserves the detection related features of lofargrams and correlograms. The new metric and algorithm are necessary because traditional methods are inappropriate for these… More

Exploiting Chaos to Improve Signal Detection

Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Ted W. Frison
Award Amount: $270,000.00
Abstract:
We will use our existing commercial grade chaotic data analysis tool kit to characterize ocean clutter and noise in hostile environments. This knowledge will be used to demonstrate how Receiver Operating Curves can be improved by reducing the mismatch between real noise and the noise model in… More

NLM Secure Satellite Communications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Ted W. Frison
Award Amount: $96,314.00
Abstract:
We have, and will demonstrate, an operational radio frequency digital nonlinear communications transceiver that uses a chaotic signal generator for signal encoding. This system solves the problem of synchronizing remote chaotic oscillators in noisy environments while utilizing the entire bandwidth… More

Principal Investigator: Rick Holland
Award Amount: $99,499.00
Abstract:
Not Available Under Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsorship entitled Investigations of Internal Waves Around Steep Slopes and Their Influence on Convergence Zone Formation, Oceanit measured internal waves two miles offshore of Sand Island in Mamala Bay, Oahu using a thermistor string and an… More

Active Sonar Target Classification in Littoral Waters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Rick Holland, Engineer
Award Amount: $69,715.00
Abstract:
"Attempts to design target classifiers for active sonar have failed to identify reliable features for separating targets and clutter, causing performance in littoral waters to be severely degraded by clutter induced false alarms. The proximate cause offailure is the large number of possible return… More

Active Sonar Target Discrimination in Littoral Waters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Rick Holland, Chief Engineer
Award Amount: $599,274.00
Abstract:
By re-examining the basic physics of underwater signal propagation in the context of recently developed notions of state-space methods for dynamical systems, we have formulated a new active sonar signal-processing model. This model is based on morerealistic assumptions about the possible return… More
