  1. FLEXIBLE DYNAMIC IR TARGET SIMULATOR

    SBC: Kms Fusion Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE UNAVAILABILITY AND HIGH COST OF VEHICLES FOR USE ON RANGES TO PRODUCE IR SIGNATURES FOR TESTING, DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING RESULTS IN LESS THAN OPTIMUM USE OF THE RANGES. TO ALLEVIATE THIS PROBLEM, A FLEXIBLE, DYNAMIC IR TARGET SIMULATOR COULD BE USED ON THE RANGE TO SIMULATE THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL IR SIGNATURE OF ACTUAL VEHICLES. THE SIMULATOR SHOULD BE DYNAMIC TO SIMULATE REALTIME VARIATIONS I ...

  2. KNOWLEDGE ELICITATION STRATEGIES FOR MODELING INSTRUCTIONAL EXPERTISE

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE INTRODUCTION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE INTO COMPUTER-BASED INSTRUCTION (CBI) PROMISED THE POSSIBILITY OF SOPHISTICATED SYSTEMS THAT COULD PROVIDE ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION EFFICIENTLY AND ECONOMICALLY. UNFORTUNATELY, EFFORTS TO DEVELOP SYSTEMS THAT REPRESENT INSTRUCTIONAL EXPERTISE HAVE BEEN LARGELY DISAPPOINTING. WHETHER DUE TO THE LACK OF WELL-DEVELOPED MODELS OF INSTRUCTIONAL EXPERTISE, OR TH ...

  4. LFAD VS GUIDED MUNITIONS

    SBC: Applications Resources Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A NEW DECEPTION COUNTERMEASURE TECHNIQUE TO COUNTER ADVANCED GUIDED WEAPON SYSTEMS. PRIOR EXPERIMENTATION PERFORMED AT ARC DEMONSTRATED THE INTERACTIONS OF THE LFAD ANGULAR DECEPTION TECHNIQUE, SUPERIMPOSED ON TARGET LINE-OF-SIGHT RATE, AND THE IMPACT UPON MICROWAVE WEAPON SYSTEM PERFORMANCE. THESE PROJECTS EXPLORED SEVERAL OPERATIONAL SITUATIONS AND IDENTIFIED POTENTIAL WE ...

  5. EFFECT OF WELD DISCONTINUITIES ON THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF ARMOR

    SBC: Welding Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    WELDED JOINTS INVARIABLY CONTAIN IMPERFECTIONS OR DISCONTINUITIES. AS NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION TECHNIQUES IMPROVE MORE OF THESE DISCONTINUITIES ARE DETECTED. IF ARBITRARY ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA FOR WELD DISCONTINUITIES ARE ADOPTED, UNNECESSARY WELD REPAIRS WILL BE REQUIRED. THIS WILL LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN FABRICATION COSTS,DELAYS IN PRODUCTION AND TO AN OVERALL REDUCTION IN QUALITY SINCE ...

  6. LOW COST MULTI-SPECTRAL EXPENDABLE COUNTERMEASURES

    SBC: Applications Resources Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED CONCEPT IS A REFLECTOR-EXPENDABLE DESIGNED TO COUNTER WEAPONS SYSTEMS THAT UTILIZE INTEGRATED RF/EO/IR TARGET ACQUISITION AND TRACKING SYSTEMS THREAT FIRE CONTROL SENSORS OVER THE ENTIRE FREQUENCY. THIS PHASE I EFFORT IS CONCERNED WITH PROVING PRELIMINARY FEASIBILITY OF THE BASIC CONCEPT ANALYTICALLY FOR APPLICATIONS ON SEMA AIRCRAFT, AND TO PERFORM SUFFICIENT PACKAGING ANALYSIS TO ES ...

  7. AN EXPERT SYSTEM FOR USE WITH COMPUTER AIDED AMMUNITION PACKAGING DESIGN

    SBC: Dialog Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS IN AMMUNITION PACKAGING DESIGN. EXPERT SYSTEMS WOULD BE USED BY A DESIGNER INDEPENDENTLY OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH A COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN SYSTEM. THE EXPERT SYSTEM WOULD BE PC BASED, MENU-DRIVEN, AND USER INTERACTIVE. THROUGH A SERIES OF QUESTIONS, THE SYSTEM WOULD SOLICIT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT A PRODUCT WILL BE SHIFTED, STORED, ...

  8. PARALLEL SOLID STATE VIDEO RECORDER

    SBC: Special Illumination Systems I            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF HIGH-SPEED PARALLEL OUTPUT IMAGE SENSORS REQUIRES A HIGHSPEED PARALLEL INPUT RECORDER WHICH IS CAPABLE OF STORING DATA AT A RATE WHICH IS SO HIGH THAT IT DOES NOT DEGRADE THE RESOLUTION OF THE SYSTEM. CAMERAS EMPLOYING CCD OR CID IMAGE SENSORS CAN BE USED IN PLACE TO HIGH-SPEED FILM CAMERAS ONLY IF THEIR FRAMING RATES ARE COMPARABLE. THE RECORDER DISCUSSED IN THIS PROPOSAL WILL DIGITIZE ...

  9. 2D RASTER TO 3D VECTOR MODELING UTILITIES

    SBC: Pioneer Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY IN DEVELOPING A BI-DIRECTIONAL (2 WAY) CADD TRANSLATOR BETWEEN DSREDS SYSTEMS (2D RASTER) AND THE INTERGRAPH CADEM SYSTEM. THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH A TRANSLATOR WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE MANPOWER WASTE AND DUPLICATION OF EFFORT THAT ARE INHERIT IN THE CURRENT METHODOLOGY USED. DUE TO PIONEER TECHNOLOGY EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE WITH THE INTERG ...

  10. TRANSITIONAL ARMATURE CONTACT DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RAILGUN ARMATURES ARE LOSSY AND CAN PRODUCE SEVERE BARREL DAMAGE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP THE DESIGN TOOLS AND DATA REQUIRED TO PERMIT THE USE OF TRANSITIONING CONTACTS IN ARMATURES. THIS WILL SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY AND BARREL LIFE OF RAILGUNS BY COMBINING THE LOW LOSS, LOW SPEED CHARACTERISTICS OF METAL ARMATURES WITH THE LOW DAMAGE, HIGH SPEED CHARACTERISTICS O ...
