  1. Expertise Location using Automatically Generated Network Models

    SBC: Expertology            Topic: N/A

    "Many information search tasks involve finding a people rather than simply a set of documents. Examples include finding a experts on technical topics in large military, governmental, and professional organizations; finding trusted vendors for electroniccommerce; and finding key trend-setting individuals for targeted marketing applications. In order to solve such tasks efficiently it is necessary t ...

  2. Closed-Loop Control of Separation in Subsonic and Transonic Flows

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: N/A

    Clear Science Corp. and Syracuse University propose to demonstrate the feedback control technologies they developed during Phase I in a series of coordinated Phase II computational and experimental tests. The Phase II objective is validated software thatintegrates reduced-model simulations, CFD simulations, and experimental data into a package for designing fixed-wing aircraft flow control systems ...

  3. Automated Acoustic Monitoring of Birdstrike Hazards

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF02T009

    Bird-aircraft collisions (birdstrikes) present a significant threat to military and commercial aircraft, and as bird populations and air traffic continue to grow, and airport/airbase operations continue to expand, the problem will steadily get worse. A majority of the efforts to solve this problem focus specifically on bird mitigation via, e.g., wildlife and environmental management. However, a ke ...

  4. Application of Cortical Processing Theory to Acoustical Analysis

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF03T006

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc. (AAC) proposes to extend its Phase I work in Auditory Cortex based sound classification. During Phase I AAC demonstrated the feasibility and accuracy of a computational model of human auditory processing based upon this cortical theory. AAC also demonstrated the concept by collecting a large number speech sounds and bird calls of various species and appling the cor ...

  6. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  7. Self-Diagnosis of Damage Criticality of Fibrous Composites Based on Multifunctional Characteristics

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: AF03T015

    The Impact Technologies, UDRI and Brown University team have successfully developed an initial concept for autonomously detecting, classifying, and predicting damage in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites using subtle changes in the resistivity signature of the structure. The demonstrated approach fused raw measurement and processed data from a set of optimally placed electrodes, alo ...

  8. 2.3 Micron High Power Continuous Wave Diode Laser Arrays

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: AF03T025

    High power semiconductor lasers emitting around 2.3 microns have many military and commercial applications. Particulary interesting is the potential use of these devices as pump sources for optically pumped semiconductor lasers emitting in the 3-5 micron range. Having successfully developed the world's first high power 2.3 micron laser arrays in Phase I of this STTR, we seek to improve on the out ...

  9. Photonic Crystal Chip-scale Optical Networks

    SBC: RSOFT DESIGN GROUP            Topic: AF03T021

    Photonics research is increasingly focusing on integrated photonic chip platforms, built around photonic crystals, nanoscale devices and hybrid integration. Designing such complex devices requires ever more powerful multi-layered simulators. We propose to develop the next generation of photonic modeling tools based on a new graphical hierarchical circuit level software tool. This tool will bala ...

  10. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: JHM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF05T021

    For Phase II, the objectives are threefold. The first objective is to utilize the insights gained in Phase I regarding the established fundamental analytical detection framework and optimization solutions for stochastic resonance. These insights will now be utilized to broaden the scope of the research into several major categories including a.) extensions to the optimized SR detection and estima ...
