  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  8. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the visible to mid-wave IR. EO/IR sensors have been very successful for terrain imaging from subsonic aircraft and from satellites. Imaging using these platforms has been studied extensively. EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the v ...
