  1. Through Screen Optical Head Tracker


    Ascension Technology proposes to develop a fast, new six degrees-of-freedom tracker, phasorBIRDTM, immune to cockpit and helmet scatterers of magnetic/electrical field energy. It will integrate seamlessly with training simulators, aircraft, tanks, andcombat air operations centers (CAOCs). Design features will enable it to exceed static accuracy and repeatability of the best magnetic trackers while ...

  3. Conductive Repair Coatings

    SBC: BBM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The central technical objective of the proposed project is development of a Conductive Repair Coatings which can be applied to multiple aircraft substrates and meet specific electrical conductance throughout the life of the coating. We propose for Phase Ito develop a conductive repair coating (CRC) having improved conductivity level and consistency in conductivity over previous systems. The system ...

  4. Field Mistuning Inspection Tool

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF05183

    Blade Diagnostics Corporation proposes to study the feasibility of developing a field mistuning tool and an associated approach for managing the mistuning problem in integrally bladed rotors (IBRs). The field inspection tool will determine the frequencies of individual blades in IBRs using the methods developed at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The tool will be a faster, automated version of ...

  5. Training Environment Support System (TESS) for Enhancing Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Simulation Training

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The Training Environment Support System (TESS) is designed to contribute to space operations training by (1) adding satellite operations center (SOC) support applications to Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) training facilities and (2) providinginstructors and trainees with training aids. Currently, high fidelity, simulation-based training for satellite operators does not feature certain import ...

  6. Conversational Agents in a Pattern Oriented Training Environment (CAPOTE)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Initial pilot training programs such as Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT) presents students with an array of complex skills to acquire and integrate in a dynamic, time-sensitive performance context. Since most of a student's hours in UPT are spent on theground, training could be fundamentally improved if students had on-demand access to flight training devices that were sophisticated enough to pr ...

  7. Satellite Technician Advanced Training System (STATS)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    It is very difficult to develop complex diagnostic skills in the absence of a tangible and concrete system context. Air Force space system operators are required to develop diagnostic expertise for spacecraft they have never and will never see. Thisproblem has been recognized by training cadre at Vandenberg AFB. A significant need exists for models of satellites which can used to reinforce clas ...

  8. Joint Systems Engineering Methodology (JSEM)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05071

    Systems Development (SD) processes demonstrate a need for improvement, particularly to increase the frequency with which systems succeed in real world settings. Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE) offers numerous principles, methods, and tools that are well-suited to addressing areas in which SD is currently most weak (e.g., handling complexity and supporting the design phase). In response to thi ...

  9. Cognitive Architecture Bridge (CAB)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05088

    Years of research in human behavior modeling have yielded a wide array of cognitive architectures. The most vital challenges confronting the field are to find an economical way to leverage the strengths of each of the multiple existing architectures and to facilitate and simplify the manner in which new cognitive models are produced, as well as to reduce the time entailed in their production. Req ...

  10. Cycles Of SiTuation Update with ModEls (COSTUME)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05104

    An extensible system for level 2 and 3 data fusion utilizing new classes of Behavioral, Situation and Threat Models will be developed. The framework for this system is based on a model of the human analytic process in which cycles of situation update and revision are performed as evidence arrives incrementally. We argue that people learn a combination of localized information, that we call a men ...
