  1. Signal Processing for Emerging Wireless Technologies

    SBC: 3DB LABS, INC.            Topic: AF05103

    In many cases the analyst's problem is one of finding a needle in a haystack. The ever increasing flood of communication technology and traffic has resulted in a large and growing haystack and presents a daunting problem. The key to maximizing analyst productivity is the development of intelligent tools which automatically and accurately extract potential activity of interest while only rejectin ...

  2. A Systematic Approach to Uncertainty Analysis for Physical Optics Based Radar Cross Section Prediction.

    SBC: ANALYTIC DESIGNS INC            Topic: AF05212

    The model validation process in radar cross section (RCS) database production is time consuming and labor intensive. Typically, synthetically generated data is compared to measured data, which is considered to be "truth." However, one must acknowledge that time may be waisted trying to refine a target model beyond the fidelity capable of the synthetic tools or the measurement data source. Analy ...

  3. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: AF05T021

    Object identification, quantification and localization are key goals in both military target detection and quantitative medical imaging. As in medical imaging, military images are often difficult to interpret due to noise, spatial resolution limits, changing background conditions and uncertainty about the materials being imaged. We propose to vastly improve the results from hyperspectral imaging s ...

  4. Novel Method for Fabricating Carbon Nanofiber Toughened Silicon Carbide Composites

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: AF05T023

    Carbon nanotube-reinforced ceramics are a promising class of materials that are plagued by extreme processing conditions which compromise the nanotubes, thereby inhibiting their ability to positively impact the ceramic composite. Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) proposes an innovative solution to this problem. Our process exploits the unique morphology of low-cost carbon nanofibers, upon which the ce ...
