  1. Particulate Composite Mixing Processes

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT22

    ABSTRACT: Triton Systems proposes to develop a novel computational model for complex particulate composite mixing processes and the resultant microstructures in high shear environments. Control of mixing of granular and particulate composites (e.g., particles in a polymer matrix) to achieve homogeneous mixtures is essential in many important functional material systems and applications, including ...

  2. Low Level Signal Detection for Passive Electro-Optical Space-based Surveillance

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corporation and the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) are proposing development and feasibility demonstration of advanced algorithms for the detection of vibration signatures in scattered light. The algorithms are being developed for applications including space-based electro-optical (EO)/infrared (IR) sensing at high frame rates and extremely low signal-to-n ...

  3. Optical Remote Detection of Low Level Earth Surface Vibrations

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Remote optical detection of ground vibrations could potentially enable discovery of subterranean and camouflaged activity. The basic challenges are to acquire a detailed physical understanding of the detected signal and develop a system at reasonable cost with sensitivity to extremely small fractional light modulations. Under this effort Spectral Sciences, Inc., in collaboration with ...

  4. Subaperture Adaptive Optics for directed energy phased arrays

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: The proposed research will develop a method of compensating atmospheric disturbances in the transmitting subapertures of a phased array transceiver operating in the infrared. The aero-optical boundary layer and atmospheric turbulence create phase variations within each subaperture. To compensate these variations, an adaptive optical system will be used in each subaperture. The propos ...

  5. Real-time Location of Targets in Cluttered Environments

    SBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: We propose development of an efficient physics-based computational capability for real-time radar location of targets in cluttered environments. Our effort will focus, in particular, on air traffic targets in static natural environments that include dynamic effects such as spinning wind turbines. The proposed methodology models radar signal scattering in cluttered environments on t ...

  7. Extracting Valid Inferences from Data, Evidence, and Novel Tests (EVIDENT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT01

    ABSTRACT: A recent study by the National Research Council found that sophisticated statistical techniques are finding their way into DoD operational test design, but that current DoD practices are still substantially behind the state of the art. The study concluded this has resulted in inefficient test designs, wasted resources, and less effective acquisition decision making. US Air Force test an ...

  9. Development of an Innovative System for Cryodeposit Mitigation and Redmediation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) propose to develop an innovative system to measure and control the cryodeposit layer thickness that develops on cold surfaces in cryogenic radiometric calibration chambers. The system includes: 1) an in-situ, interferometric-based instrument to monitor the cryodeposit layer thickness, 2) a mitigation sy ...

  10. Biologically-inspired Integrated Vision System

    SBC: Spectral Imaging Laboratory            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. Smaller versio ...
