  1. Lightweight Optical Benches and Mounting Structures

    SBC: The Peregrine Falcon Corporation            Topic: MDA13T007

    Peregrine will rely on advanced composites with unique dampening factors and our experience with kinematic mounts to develop and fabricate a state of the art, ultra-lightweight optical bench. This will be a high stiffness, and lightweight optical support structure capable of flying on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at high altitudes. It will have mounts capable of yielding less than a few hundred ...

  2. 3D-Printed Lightweight Optics for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T009

    A significant cost and processing time reduction is realized by replacing the difficult manufacturing and machining processes associated with ceramic substrates, such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) or siliconized-SiC, with additive manufacturing or three dimensional (3D) printing. Along with reducing cost and time, additive manufacturing extends the capabilities of lightweight optics to meet more deman ...

  5. Decision Making under Uncertainty

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    The objectives of our Phase I effort are to characterize target sensor measurement uncertainties and feature extraction uncertainties; determine how and where, in the processing chain, these affect target discrimination and classification; show how the different sources of uncertainty lead to the cumulative uncertainty in the final decision; provide techniques that will be instrumental to optimizi ...

  6. Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Vibration Attenuating Properties

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA13T007

    Airborne optical benches must provide high levels of stability to ensure the mission success of sensitive optical equipment. Optical structures used in high altitude Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms must remain especially robust due to the significant environmental changes between ground level and high altitudes. The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of r ...

  9. Perceptually Accurate Video Manipulation of Vehicle Speed for Teen Driver Training

    SBC: Parallel Consulting, LLC            Topic: NICHD

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for teens, accounting annually for over 3000 deaths, 100 times as many injuries, and over 14 billion dollars in associated costs. Speeding contributes to more than 30% of teen driving crashes and is the primary factor in over 20% of serious teen crashes. Among teens, driving too fast for cond ...
