  1. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  2. Developing High Fidelity Synthetic Task Research Environments Using Gaming Technology

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corp            Topic: AF06T011

    Game technology can efficiently produce Synthetic Task Environments for training, research and assessment. Typically this technology is exploited with an entertainment-oriented game engine. However a fully functional STE requires features outside the engine's original design. This compels engineers to work around the architecture and deliver code which is compromised and complex. The system become ...

  3. Information Dissemination Agent (IDA)

    SBC: ENKIA CORP.            Topic: OSD07I01

    While recent efforts in cross-domain information sharing have developed platforms and infrastructure for information sharing, they do not address issues of human-system interactions within the framework of existing information creation, visualization and communication environments. This project will focus on developing front-ends to information sharing services and support tools, assisting analyst ...

  4. Intelligent Assistant For Just Enough Data Sharing Across Multiple Security Domains

    SBC: ENKIA CORP.            Topic: OSD05NC2

    The ability to identify and share information in a "just enough" manner is critical in defense, intelligence, and industry settings. Human analysts in both government and private sectors are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of data, compounded by the increasing complexity of information sharing policies. Unlike companies that provide infrastructure and platforms for information sharing, such as gua ...

  5. Collision Avoidance for Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06149

    It is proposed to further develop, flight demonstrate and transition a robust capability to autonomously detect and avoid obstacles typically encountered in flight by fixed or rotary wing micro air vehicles during low-altitude urban operations. There are two basic elements: (1) continually detecting and modeling the observable 3-D obstacle field in real-time, and (2) autonomously guiding the vehic ...

  6. VARTM Processing of High Temperature Polymer Matrix Composites

    SBC: M&P TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF07T013

    By leveraging recent innovations in resin formulations and low cost processing techniques, affordable high temperature composite structures can be affordably achieved. Newly developed polyimide (PI) resins demonstrate excellent property retention at 550°F for up to 1000 hrs. Fabrication of PI based composites is currently too expensive for most production applications. The feasibility of high ...

  7. Nanostructured Ultrahydrophobic Anti-corrosion Coatings

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF071324

    nGimat Co. proposes to utilize the NanoSpray/Combustion CVD process for the development and production of high performance ultrahydrophobic anti-corrosion coatings for military structures. The ultrahydrophobic coatings will be based in part on the ultrahydrophobic nature of the lotus leaf, but with a focus on improving durability to a level not previously seen in nature or coatings developed by o ...

  8. Regenerative Sorbent System Solutions for Logistics Fuels Desulfurization

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05282

    This Phase II project will develop nanomaterial sorbents for desulfurization of logistics fuels. The project’s purpose is to allow ultra-low emissions engines to use JP-8 and diesel fuels, which are traditionally high in sulfur, by reducing their sulfur content below 15 ppm, an acceptable level compatible with the new engine designs. Success in this project will provide the military with a via ...

  9. Automated Sanding of Aircraft Coatings

    SBC: Millennium Dynamics Corporation            Topic: AF071112

    A cost effective and low risk automated sanding system that utilizes an innovative and extensible system architecture for removal of aircraft coatings is proposed. Elements of the Integrated Product/Process Development and robust design methodology will be applied in a systematic and exhaustive qualitative and quantitative assessment to identify the technologies, architecture and design concept th ...

  10. Dualband Polarization Sensitive Quantum Dot Detectors

    SBC: NDP Optronics LLC.            Topic: AF07T027

    The proposed innovation will prove the feasibility of developing a spectral tunable and polarization sensitive quantum dot (QD) based detector in the 2-14 micron range. The aim is to satisfy the U.S. Air Force (USAF) requirements for passive spectral and polarization sensing in the infrared range without external filtering components and polarizers. The approach for achieving this challenge is to ...
