  1. Multiphysics-based Sensor Fusion

    SBC: Guerci Consulting LLC            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: A new approach to multisensor fusion is proposed that utilizes a knowledge-aided (KA) multi-physics model as the main fusion engine, as opposed to traditional purely statistical methods. The new Multi-Physics Sensor Fusion (MPSF) is enabled byadvances in high performance computing, knowledge-aided (KA) processing, and new techniques in multi-physics modeling. Traditional sensor fusion ou ...

  2. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Acylindrical Lens Development

    SBC: IRFLEX CORPORATION            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 ...

  3. Broad Spectrum Optical Property Characterization

    SBC: SPECTRAL MOLECULAR IMAGING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT12

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a flexible, low-cost, integrated and sensitive broad spectrum optical property characterization system. We propose a hyperspectral imager designed for operation in the 300nm 2000nm spectral region with state-of-the-art spectral and spatial resolution through the use of a high density array of high finesse (F = 1000) tuna ...

  4. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: Perceptive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I effort, the PI2 team will perform a set of technology and algorithmic trade studies with the goal of finding innovative new system concepts for a VPHS using all digital processing, and with extremely low latency (at most one frame) from light into the sensor to light out of the display. We approach this attempting to meet the system threshold and objective goals as stated ...

  5. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: Carbonics, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: This Phase I STTR project aims to develop a silicon friendly carbon nanotube field effect transistor platform technology with reduced contact resistance and wafer-scale aligned carbon nanotubes towards development of an L-band amplifier. Key innovation nuggets that will be developed include: 1) a wafer scalable process to deposit dense aligned arrays of high purity semiconducting and len ...

  6. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: ATOM INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: In this project, we propose to develop the baseline process to form low source-drain contact resistance to the CNTs. This includes finding the right metal stack and annealing recipe to form good ohmic contact to the CNTs. The goal is to achieve a resistance less than 25 k at per nanotube contact. To reach such goal, we will leverage the interfacial dipole alignment of conjugated polyelec ...

  7. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: Carbon Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CFET is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear amplifiers. Increasing ...

  8. High Quality/Low Dimension Data for Sensor Integration

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: This project addresses the development and evaluation of high-quality low-dimensional (HQLD) sensor data selection and fusion (SDSF) algorithms. The objective is to develop algorithms that process the data from multiple sensors to reduce dimensionality while retaining the information content of the full-dimension data. An HQLD-SDSF algorithm will be developed within the context of a like ...

  9. Information Geometry beyond the Exponential Family

    SBC: FiskeTech, LLC            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: Information geometry treats families of probability distributions as curves or surfaces in an abstract space of probability distributions. Theoretical results from this field exist in multiple application domains and at least some real systems employ data fusion techniques based on this research. We propose the combination of techniques that have been developed and applied for different ...

  10. 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 ...
