  1. RPAT Technicians

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF071089

    Our adversaries understand the need to limit their exposure time to preying USAF eyes. The enemy hides, exposes only during the briefest of time and then hides again. As the enemy adapts to our technology and finds methods to minimize their exposure, the F2T2EA process had to be compressed from hours, to seconds. An obvious impediment to fast Time Sensitive Targets (TST) engagement is that aircr ...

  2. Webster-Med

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD06H03

    The recent outbreak of E. coli only served to remind us of the vulnerability of our food production. It stirred memories of an amateur bio-terror attack using salmonella in local salad bars in an attempt to influence a local election in Oregon. In handling any bio-terrorism event, there are two facets to consider, pre-event crisis management and post-event consequence management. Crisis management ...

  3. Agent-based Reduction of Information Density (ARID)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06031

    Information overload and cluttered user interfaces cause decreased situational awareness and lowered performance of the human operators. Irrelevant data increases searching times for tasks requiring the identification of threats, causing delayed decisions. Cognitive burden on the user increases as displays become more cluttered, which results in increased operator stress leading to slower decisi ...

  4. Holistic Analysis, Visualization, & Characterization Assessment Tool (HAVCAT)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06T031

    In today's complex, multi-dimensional, coalition, effects-based campaigns; commanders must be able to "see" the situation in their decision making tasks. The modern fighting force is privy to an enormous array of intelligence gathering, database, and sensor sources of information to the point of over-saturation. Methods for visualizing the information in an intuitive manner must be established for ...

  5. Platform routing and data fusion technologies for Cooperative ISR

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: AF07T021

    In order for collaborative Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) to become a viable mission for an ever-expanding heterogonous UAV fleet, UAV autonomy must achieve autonomy level four (i.e. on-board route re-planning) and beyond (i.e. increasingly complex group coordination), so that operators are not overwhelmed with routine operational decisions. For UAV platform routing, current ...

  6. Advanced Finite Element Model Development for Characterization and Mitigation of Bone Conducted Sound Transmission in High Noise Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06T035

    Improved understanding of mechanisms controlling bone conduction (BC) sound transmission, especially with respect to acoustic excitation, is urgently needed in order to develop more effective hearing protection in extremely high noise fields. The Phase I research program made great progress toward this goal by yielding new insights into a mechanism believed to be a significant contributor to BC s ...

  7. New Sensing Capabilities for Space Situational Awareness

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: AF071292

    AeroAstro proposes to develop a wideband, broad area coverage RF sensor (antenna and receiver) capable of detecting the electromagnetic interference (EMI) generated during a spacecraft’s nominal operations. This EMI is an exploitable form of RF MASINT, specifically unintended radiated emissions (URE), and could provide useful information if detected, identified, and characterized. Development of ...

  8. Ionospheric Imaging Using NVIS

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: AF07T031

    Real-time estimation of relevant ionospheric parameters is required for military applications and to further our understanding of space weather and its societal and technological impacts. Currently, a major limitation in the modeling of ionospheric physics is a complete lack of input data measurements. The HF transmitter/receiver system proposed here contributes measurements of the bottom-side ion ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Innovative Technologies for Knowledge Capture and Transfer in Space Systems Product Development

    SBC: APPLIED KNOWLEDGE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: AF071092

    The purpose of this project is to research and develop advanced multi-modal information technologies for knowledge capture and transfer that can feed a lessons-learned knowledge base for life cycle product development. In order to overcome the obstacles associated with current lessons-learned systems, the proposed approach shifts the current paradigm from the management of documents, to the manag ...
