  1. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Detonators

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify explosive detonators. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape, and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by ...

  2. An Investigation of the Feasibility of Using Video-Based Motion Measurement for Recovering Helicopter Blade Kinematics

    SBC: 4DVideo            Topic: N/A

    Traditionally, kinematic measurements have been made using electro-mechanical transducers which produce a signal which is proportional to the parameter being measured. This approach is unlikely to be replaced by optical tracking techniques, but there are many instances where it is impractical (or even impossible) to attach a mechanical device to the subject. The blades of a helicopter rotot are an ...

  3. Modeling Complex Automatic Flight Controls for Helicopter Systems

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Second Generation Helicopter Analysis System (2GCHAS) has been developed to provide a common framework for interdisciplinary design and analysis of rotorcraft systems. A current limitation is the level of sophistication available in modeling advanced control systems. Advanced Rotorcraft Technology will utilize the Phase I effort to carefully define the specifications, develop the algorithms, a ...

  4. Numerically Efficient Rotorcraft Trim and Transient Response

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develo a numerically efficient rotorcraft trim and transient response algorithm. The algorithm is intended for application in a periodic dynamic system with a large number of degrees of freedom as is commonly the case in current comprehensive rotorcraft analysis codes (such as 2GCHAS). The innovation of this proposal can be summarized as follows: 1) Utilizing Model Order Reduction ...

  6. Detailed Investigation of Multiple Injections in DI Diesel Engines

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Diesel injection is known to influence the combustion efficiency and the production of particulate and NOx emissions. Recent developments in the fuel injection including split injection wherein the fuel is injected in two or three pulses rather than with a single injection have led to significant improvements in terms of the reduction in the emissions. To date, the experimentation on these metho ...

  7. Two Color Per Pixel Digital Readout Staring Focal Plane Array

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Amain Electronics has developed an innovative on focal plane digital readout approach which not only provides the necessary pixel size and linear dynamic range for multicolor detector interfacing, but also generates an offset free output data stream that can be input directly into a digital image processor or flat panel display. This eliminates the need for performance limiting analog electronics ...

  8. SEED Based Optical Links for Focal Plane Readout

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A free space optical data link is proposed based upon the use of symmetric self electro-optic effect device, the S-SEED. This device, a multiple quantum well based p-i-n diode pair, is a photonic switch which can be utilized as an electrically modulated reflector or inversely as an optically modulated electronic element. It can therefore act both as a transmitter or receiver. The extremely low e ...

  9. Battlefield Management and Expert Cueing (BFMEC) System Prototyping

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I proposal is intended to develop an advanced Battlefield Management and Expert Cueing (BFMEC) System using distributed expert system decision aids for direct/indirect fire. The BFMEC is aimed at small units (such as an artillery battery) and will incorporate recent technological breakthroughs in decision aids. The BFMEC system is centered on the advanced blackboard model employing dyn ...

  10. Trauma Care Classification

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I project is to develop a processing architecture that accepts data from multiple inputs an provide likely trauma survival ratings. The processing architecture is based on a neural network configuration expanded to encode in a direct and unambiguous manner statistical information This creates a hybrid architecture that permits the best attributes of both domains to b ...
