  1. 3D imaging for tracking and aim-point maintenance in the presence of target-pose changes

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT005

    We propose a three-dimensional imaging approach based on digital holography. Our approach is based on frequency diversity using a single chirped pulse instead of a train of pulses with different frequencies. Our approach promises to mitigate most of the issues limiting the performance of current methods and offer additional enabling capabilities that will improve target identification and tracking ...

  2. 3-D Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance (3-D TrAM)

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF19AT005

    Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system.Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target.In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction.Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillates t ...

  3. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT006

    Tau Technologies is teaming with Dr. David Voelz and his research group at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to propose Vibration Imaging for the characterization of extended non-cooperative targets, which employs dual-pulses in two different variations for vibration imaging in order to characterize non-cooperative targets at extended standoffs. One method is based on double-pulse time-averaging ...

  4. Synthetic Scene Generation for Wide Application including High Performance Computing Environments

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF19AT007

    We will deliver a new software architecture for scene generation named the Realistic Image and Neighborhood Generator (RING). Instead of being tied to a single tool, RING will provide interfaces suitable for a wide variety of image and scene rendering tools to run and interact with other codes. As an initial implementation of the interfaces, we will incorporate Stellar Sciences powerful, flexible ...

  5. Verification and Validation of Algorithms for Resilient Complex Software Controlled Systems

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF17CT05

    This effort seeks verification tools and techniques to ensure safety and stability of spacecraft Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GN&C) algorithms, particularly the attitude control system integrated with autonomy software. Advanced control algorithms and autonomy are increasingly necessary to enable responsiveness of fleets of vehicles to attitude constraints and object avoidance. Verus Researc ...

  6. Damage Morphology for Advanced Concretes

    SBC: Dynamic Systems And Research Corporation            Topic: AF18AT012

    The development and implementation of new damage morphology models for concrete materials is critical to understanding their dynamic behavior during severe shock loading environments.Current constitutive models of conventional strength concretes do not accurately represent the behavioral characteristics of new ultra-high strength concretes because of differences in damage mechanisms during failure ...

  7. Verification and Validation of Algorithms for Resilient Complex Software Controlled Systems

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC            Topic: AF17CT05

    Verification of the Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) algorithms and software utilized onboard spacecraft is of paramount importance to ensure resilient, correct operation after launch. Rather than wait until the GN&C software has been deployed to perform on-orbit verification, offline verification integrated into the design process will improve mission performance, significantly reduce the ...

  8. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT001

    Radio frequency communications and sensors are everywhere in both personal and military life. RF fields are also used in some medical therapies. However, little is known about the medical effects that result from the routine exposure of tissue to RF fields. To understand such effects, new instrumentation is needed that can quantify the RF radiation amplitude with spatial resolution comparable to t ...

  9. Full Mueller Matrix Characterization of Imaged Samples using Digital Holography

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18AT007

    The Department of Defense relies on a worldwide network of radar and optical sites to maintain Space Situational Awareness.Although careful consideration during site selection process solves some of this mission's challenges, optical sensor imaging of objects at significant ranges is always hampered by many other factors, such as limited-aperture optics and atmospheric turbulence.There remains, ho ...
