  1. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: Printed Performance Innovations            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: Material extrusion 3D printing is an Additive Manufacturing method which utilizes a polymeric monofilanment as a feedstock in the fabrication of 3D objects. The relative simplicity compared to other AM technologies makes it an attractive manufacturing tool, however, characteristics inherent to this 3D printing method (namely air gaps between print rasters) makes it undesirable for the 3D ...

  3. Bayesian Fusion of Heterogeneous Data for Unanticipated Event Detection

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT12

    Metron, Inc. and Portland State University propose to design, develop, test and demonstrate algorithms that fuse heterogeneous sensor data at an information theoretic level and process these data as detection and tracking algorithms that can identify when new events or targets emerge that are not currently modeled. These algorithms have the potential to provide dramatic improvements in the capabil ...

  4. Biomimetic Design of Morphing Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: Concepts to Systems Inc.            Topic: AF15AT01

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this STTR is to design micro air vehicles (MAVs) capable of adaptively changing wing geometry utilizing novel active materials that overcome limitations of previous attempts at implementing practical biomimetic multifunctional structures. The basic idea of a morphing aircraft wherein the vehicle changes its shape to optimally perform in multiple flight segments holds the prom ...

  5. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Acylindrical Lens Development

    SBC: IRFLEX CORP            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: Laser source technology in the mid-infrared region, 2um to beyond 10um, is progressing rapidly. Quantum cascade laser (QCL) is one of these new sources, which cover the whole mid-infrared spectrum with high-power and good wall-plug efficiencies. Due to the micron sized and non-circular cross-section of the active region, the laser beam quickly diverges in the direction perpendicular to t ...

  6. Cortical Processing Approaches to Mitigation of Reverberation in Speech

    SBC: IN-DEPTH ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Vocal communication in the real world often takes place in complex and noisy acoustic environments. For applications such as mobile communications or use of automated speech/speaker recognition algorithms on recorded data, the presence of noise and reverberation significantly degrades the quality and intelligibility of speech and severely hampers the performance of these systems. Approac ...

  8. Design, Reconfigure, and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. We see a significant opportunity to advance the state ...
