  1. Improving the Physics of Applied Reverberation Models

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N13AT026

    The proposed effort will enhance the capability of the Acoustic System Performance Model (ASPM) and its implementation of the ASEPS Transmission Loss (ASTRAL) model by adding to it a treatment of several physical phenomena. Research in recent years has demonstrated that sea surface forward scatter consists of coherent and incoherent components with both having profound impact on reverberation. The ...

  2. Innovative Unified Damage Mechanisms-Based Model to Predict Remaining Useful Life for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N14AT002

    Recent studies by the PI and the Co-PI of this STTR effort have shown that aluminum alloys and stainless steel in Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) fail upon reaching a critical entropy; claimed to be an intrinsic material property. The critical entropy has been used as damage metric for prediction of remaining useful life (RUL). Also, similar entropic concept has previously been applied to LCF of composite ...

  3. Demonstration of a Local Carrier-Based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N14AT009

    Toyon Research Corporation, together with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) propose to demonstrate a GPS-denied Local Carrier-based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS) that enables 3-D position, navigation and time (PNT) for platforms within range of an aircraft carrier equipped with one or more ADEPT-compliant beacons. Unlike the Global Positioning System (GPS), which ...

  4. Proactive Contextual Decision Support for Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N13AT020

    Current decision tools often omit important situational context. Unfortunately, this can lead to dangerous and costly errors, as context drives decision making. For example, in operational navigation planning tasks, decisions must be made that rely on multiple information sources of different fidelities and uncertainties. Furthermore, after obtaining additional information the necessity for replan ...

  5. Situational Awareness as a Man-Machine Map Reduce Job

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort is focused on the development of a system called Situational Awareness via Mixed-initiative Universal Recognition, Analysis, and Inference (SAMURAI). SAMURAI will provide a single cloud-enabled end-to-end workflow covering the full range of data analysis from data ingest to situational assessment and decision support. As part of this workflow SAMURAI will provide the ability for automa ...

  6. Semantic Parsing and role Labeling In Combination Effort (SPLICE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA14B003

    With missions surrounding counterproliferation, nonproliferation and WMD reduction, the stakes for DTRA are incredibly high. Effectively conducting this work involves cooperation and coordination across a wide range of military and government organizations throughout the United States and the world. The decentralization of threats has led to an explosion in the sources and types of data needed to ...

  7. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  8. Developing and validating a model to understand mixed lubrication regions for fluid-film bearings

    SBC: Xdot Engineering And Analysis, PLLC            Topic: N12AT010

    Seawater lubricated propulsor (i.e., stern tube) bearings are one of the most important bearings aboard a ship. The performance and life of these bearings directly affects the vessel's operational capabilities, life cycle costs, and overall availability. In a single shaft vessel such as an Ohio class SSBN, any failure of this bearing is extremely problematic. In certain applications such as submer ...
