  1. Target Tracking via Deep Learning

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT027

    Persistent tracking of high-value targets is of great interest for reconnaissance and surveillance applications. In recent work, deep neural networks have demonstrated excellent performance on the popular Visual Object Tracking (VOT) challenge; however, these algorithms have not been tested on applications of interest to the Air Force, such as ground vehicle tracking in video recorded from Unmanne ...

  2. Adaptive and Smart Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT018

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies covering a broad range of technologies and processes have been under continuous and accelerating development since the 80s. While there are still fundamental hurdles such as low production rates and small sizes, AM holds tremendous promise in terms of revolutionizing manufacturing. Recent trends include direct-printing and incorporating sensors and electr ...

  3. Polychromatic guide-stars using novel optically pumped semiconductor disk lasers

    SBC: Crystalline Mirror Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF17AT005

    During the last two decades, vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) have emerged as excellent high-power laser sources that combine diode-pumping, broad-pump tolerance, wavelength selectivity, narrow linewidth, broad tunability, high beam quality, compactness, and efficiency into one attractive package. These characteristics make them an ideal candidate for use as more economic ...

  4. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface ...

  5. Mobile Atmospheric Turbulence-Refractivity Sensor

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT008

    In this effort, tOSC and the University of New Mexico COSMIAC (Configurable Space Microsys- tems Innovation Applications Center) will combine to generate a Target-in-the-Loop (TIL) system concept that can simultaneously measure the strength of atmospheric turbulence and scintillation, as well as the refractivity occurring at the measurement time. For this system concept, we will leverage existing ...

  6. Broadband Low-Coherence Scatterometer

    SBC: Spectabit Optics LLC            Topic: AF17AT010

    The US Air Force has noted a need for a tool for broadband (300 nm2m) measurement of optical propagation properties such as absorption and scattering coefficients. A simple and inexpensive generic tool for extracting these properties from samples would be beneficial to many areas of both DoD and general scientific and industrial research. The present proposal seeks to develop a commercial instrume ...

  8. Blended Reality for Live, Virtual, and Constructive Field Training

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT011

    A Battlefield Airman (BA) has one of the most challenging positions in the military. BA personnel are tasked with the dual roles of being warfighters as well as Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) members and Special Operations Weather Technicians often while behind enemy lines. These complex duties require high fidelity training. In some cases, such as pararesc ...

  10. Open Standard for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS)

    SBC: Third Dimension Technologies LLC            Topic: AF16AT07

    The Air Force has identified a need for a display agnostic common streaming model for 3D data. Third Dimension Technologies (TDT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have formed a consortium to define a 3D streaming model based on open standards for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS). Two factors are driving this need. The first is the dramatic increase in the collection, storage and trans ...
