  1. Optimization of the NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 9030268R

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a primary diagnostic tool in scientific research and clinical imaging. Despite the excellent image quality that can be obtained with today’s MRIs, images acquired using different MRI systems and during longitudinal studies are not reproducible, and hence can be difficult, if not impossible, to compare. To address this issue, a standardized test of the ...

  2. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 841D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  3. Monitoring Active Region Development of the Far-Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841W

    Solar active regions have a major impact on space weather. Knowledge of active regions in the Sun’s far hemisphere can improve forecasts of impending solar storms and future UV irradiance variations that negatively impact spacecraft, communications, and navigation facilities, thus making knowledge of active region locations and strengths of great benefit to society. We will use algorithms based ...

  4. GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112065

    ABSTRACT:Ionospheric scintillation and TEC are required by the IORD. We propose a GPS Autonomous Micro-Monitor (GAMMA) that makes measurements of Ionospheric scintillation and TEC. GAMMA will be remotely deployable, such as on an ocean buoy or in a battlefield. It will send data to the user via the Iridium satellite network in near real-time. GAMMA will make use of ASTRAs existing Connected Autono ...

  5. High-Speed Weapon Radomes

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF121092

    ABSTRACT:As more and more advanced hypersonic weapons are developed, vehicle temperatures are expected to near 1250K (977C); as flight times increase, these temperatures are expected to saturate the entire vehicle.Typically, forward-looking RF and IR sensors are collocated in the same protective radome, which degrades the performance of both systems.FIRST RF proposes a significantly different appr ...

  6. Fusion of Space Weather Data with Satellite Telemetry

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF112066

    ABSTRACT:The DF&NN team proposes to provide automated space weather (SpWx) attribution tools to characterize abnormal events detected at operational sites using the DF&NN patented Enterprise Satellite-as-a-Sensor (E-SAS) system.The DF&NN Space Situational Awareness (SSA) fusion tools, Modern Technology Solutions Incorporated operational experience, Space Environment Technologies SpWx expertise, an ...

  7. GridCloud: A Secure Processing and Data Management Solution Using.Crunch V3

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF121040

    ABSTRACT:The Joint Environment Toolkit (JET) Increment 2 architecture consists of servers at six globally distributed Operational Weather Squadrons (OWS).Each server must handle peak demand of weather analysis and forecast information from 30-40 Weather Flights (WFs, which provide tactical weather information to pilots) in addition to 1,000 or more other operational users within their area of resp ...

  8. Electroplated Alloys for Replacement of Hard Chrome on Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Electrolytic Hard Chrome (ECH) is the standard coating method for 4XXX steels used in actuators and depot-based repair of damaged items. The properties of EHC coatings are excellent, and as a result EHC coatings have been used for more than 50 years. Unfortunately, EHC plating uses hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) that is regulated by both OSHA and the EPA. Health and environmental concern ...

  9. Robust, automatic design of highly efficient, variable precision filters

    SBC: The Numericus Group, LLC.            Topic: AF141003

    ABSTRACT: The Numericus Group, LLC (TNG) is proposing a paradigm shift for digital filter design, opening a number of technological opportunities that TNG is uniquely qualified to pursue. At the heart of this new paradigm are algorithms that are guaranteed to converge and do not require an expert to oversee their operation, unlike many existing algorithms commonly used today. The new approac ...

  10. Sensor Data Fusion for Intelligent Systems Monitoring and Decision Making

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF103255

    ABSTRACT: The current AF aircraft maintenance system has a high operational cost of unplanned, premature, and missed maintenance. The"red"operational anomaly detection thresholds are not adaptive to individual aircraft history nor to changes in operations causing"ringers"and missed detections. Abnormal correlations in aircraft health sensor data that can be precursors to catastrophic failures ar ...
