  1. Ultra-stable, Portable Fabry-Perot Cavities

    SBC: Boulder Precision Electro-optics            Topic: SB12A001

    Frequency stabilized lasers are essential subsystems in many applications. Most importantly, they are used as flywheel oscillators in optical atomic clocks, as well as in many sensing and measurement systems, and some examples are down oil well sensing, l

  2. Multiphysics-based Sensor Fusion

    SBC: Guerci Consulting LLC            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: A new approach to multisensor fusion is proposed that utilizes a knowledge-aided (KA) multi-physics model as the main fusion engine, as opposed to traditional purely statistical methods. The new Multi-Physics Sensor Fusion (MPSF) is enabled byadvances in high performance computing, knowledge-aided (KA) processing, and new techniques in multi-physics modeling. Traditional sensor fusion ou ...

  3. Soft and Elastomeric Intramuscular Electrode with Therapeutic Delivery Capability

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A13AT019

    Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury that has little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very difficult or impossible for many patients. Focusing therapeutic treatments to segmental nerve in ...

  4. Multifunctional Textile Coating of Military Fabrics

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: A13AT020

    "US Armys combat uniform systems currently use NyCo fabrics which are made using a 50% nylon/50% cotton blend. Army Combat Utility (ACU) uniforms have excellent comfort and durability but lack flame resistance (FR). The US Army relies on expensive FR fabrics for protecting warfighters against fire hazards. These FR fabrics are typically made using specialty fibers such as Lenzing FR rayon fibers a ...

  6. Improving the Physics of Applied Reverberation Models

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N13AT026

    The proposed effort will enhance the capability of the Acoustic System Performance Model (ASPM) and its implementation of the ASEPS Transmission Loss (ASTRAL) model by adding to it a treatment of several physical phenomena. Research in recent years has demonstrated that sea surface forward scatter consists of coherent and incoherent components with both having profound impact on reverberation. The ...

  7. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Acylindrical Lens Development

    SBC: IRFLEX CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: Laser source technology in the mid-infrared region, 2um to beyond 10um, is progressing rapidly. Quantum cascade laser (QCL) is one of these new sources, which cover the whole mid-infrared spectrum with high-power and good wall-plug efficiencies. Due to the micron sized and non-circular cross-section of the active region, the laser beam quickly diverges in the direction perpendicular to t ...

  8. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: Perceptive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I effort, the PI2 team will perform a set of technology and algorithmic trade studies with the goal of finding innovative new system concepts for a VPHS using all digital processing, and with extremely low latency (at most one frame) from light into the sensor to light out of the display. We approach this attempting to meet the system threshold and objective goals as stated ...

  9. High Quality/Low Dimension Data for Sensor Integration

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: This project addresses the development and evaluation of high-quality low-dimensional (HQLD) sensor data selection and fusion (SDSF) algorithms. The objective is to develop algorithms that process the data from multiple sensors to reduce dimensionality while retaining the information content of the full-dimension data. An HQLD-SDSF algorithm will be developed within the context of a like ...

  10. Information Geometry beyond the Exponential Family

    SBC: FiskeTech, LLC            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: Information geometry treats families of probability distributions as curves or surfaces in an abstract space of probability distributions. Theoretical results from this field exist in multiple application domains and at least some real systems employ data fusion techniques based on this research. We propose the combination of techniques that have been developed and applied for different ...
