Award List:

Novel Signal Processing Algorithms to Exploit and Classify Active Sonobuoy Returns

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Kevin Delaney
Award Amount: $67,022.00
Abstract:
Not Available SSCI proposes to develop robust software-enabled intelligent control algorithms and adaptive control design toolkit for rapid controller design and prototyping for autonomous systems operating under highly unpredictable circumstances such as sensor and actuator failures, large… More

Automated Hand-held UXO Detection, Classification and Discrimination Sensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $93,388.00
Abstract:
Not Available Deficiencies in the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System (ATCRBS) have lead to the development and use of the Mode S Beacon System, which is backward compatible with the ATCRBS. In the U.S. and Europe, Mode S Secondary Surveillance Radars (SSRs) have been installed at many… More

N/A

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2000 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Thomas H. Bell
Award Amount: $117,837.00

Integrated Sensor System for Load and Condition Assessment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Kevin Delaney, Corporate Senior Scientis
Award Amount: $749,045.00
Abstract:
New results on false alarm characteristics from our research show that an estimate of a contact's effective target strength could be used as a very reliable classifier for near specular submarine detections. Exploiting this would require that theprocessing system be able to adaptively estimate… More

Enhanced Hand-held Electromagnetic Induction Sensor for Landmine Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Thomas Bell, Project Manager
Award Amount: $720,816.00
Abstract:
Currently available handheld mine detectors are effective in detecting metal mines and pieces of metal used in the firing mechanisms of non-metallic mines. However, these detectors can have a very high false alarm rate due to an inability to discriminatetargets, particularly the types and shapes of… More

Passive Broadband Acoustic Imaging Network for Urban Warfare

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Donald Miklovic, Vice President
Award Amount: $99,000.00
Abstract:
The current situation in Iraq is making it extremely clear that the urban environment is a chaotic and dangerous battlespace. Currently available technology cannot provide the level of real-time situational awareness needed by each individual soldier. DARPA has determined that Sparse Conformal… More

Passive Broadband Acoustic Imaging Network for Urban Warfare

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Donald Miklovic, Technical Director
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
The current situation in Iraq is making it extremely clear that the urban environment is a chaotic and dangerous battle space. Currently available technology cannot provide the level of real-time situational awareness needed by each individual soldier. DARPA has determined that Sparse Conformal… More

Automated Exploitation of Airborne Acoustic Arrays Using Adaptive/Learning Techniques

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Donald Miklovic, Technical Director
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The overall goal of the Sensors Directorate is to be the "Eyes and Ears of the Warfighter". The development of sensing technology has focused primarily on the extension of the sense of sight, e.g., the use of radar, infrared, E/O and laser technologies; while relatively little effort has been… More

Imaging Acoustic Signature Analyses for Plant Turbo-machinery

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Donald Miklovic, Eng
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Rotating machinery is used in industrial applications, both in the US military and civilian worlds. Monitoring the health of this equipment is vital for uninterrupted operations; in a continuous-process plant, machinery downtime is very expensive. Unfortunately, machinery health is now monitored… More

Automated Exploitation of High-Gain Acoustic Arrays Using Adaptive/Learning Techniques

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Donald Miklovic, Technical Director
Award Amount: $799,976.00
Abstract:
The current situation in Iraq is making it extremely clear that the urban environment is a chaotic and dangerous battle space. Currently available technology cannot provide the level of real-time situational awareness needed by each individual soldier. DARPA has determined that Sparse Conformal… More

Signal Processing for a Southern Border Surveillance System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Michael Levine, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The U.S. Border Patrol is in critical need of improved surveillance for detection of people and vehicles illegally crossing the Southern Border, particularly in rural areas. AETC will conduct a Phase 1 feasibility study of acoustics-based surveillance and signal processing techniques to address the… More
