  1. A compact, UAV compatible, high-definition hyperspectral imaging system

    SBC: Flight Landata, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation is a compact, UAV compatible, high-definition hyperspectral imaging system. The system concurrently-acquires a hyperspectral image using a compact grating imaging spectrometer and a much-higher spatial resolution color photographic image using a portable, measurement-grade, high-definition CCD camera (2,000 x 1,312 pixel). The spectral resolution of the hyperspectral image is better ...

  2. Advanced Tracking Techniques for FOPEN GMTI Radars

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The utility of continuously tracking vehicles in a battlefield has been demonstrated during the Gulf War and other recent conflicts. However, the ability to achieve reliable continuous tracking in many environments will require the use of FOPEN radar andefficient use of sensor resources. In this effort we extend current research to include heterogeneous terrain and apply this model to simulations. ...

  3. Automated Manufacture of Damage Detecting, Self-Healing Composite Cryogenic Pressure Vessels


    During Phase I, Aurora Flight Sciences and the University of Massachusetts Lowell propose to demonstrate the feasibility of enhancing a commercially available out-of-autoclave (OOA) carbon prepreg material system (e.g. IM7/5320) via embedded structural health monitoring (SHM) and self-healing capabilities, which can be manufactured by an automated fiber placement (AFP) machine. This proposed "sma ...

  5. Imaging and Analyzing Plant Stresses in the Ag-Ecology

    SBC: Growtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed R/R&D effort will obtain new improved, in situ measurements of vegetation using a computer-based fluorescence imaging system that images and processes the plant's cellular energy emissions to quantify and diagnose the plant's photosynthetic pathways. With multi-spectral bandwidths and image processing which increase the system's sensitivity, fluorescence-imaging diagnoses early plant ...

  7. Integrated software toolbox for aeroelastic modeling and dynamic stability analysis of a Generic Hypersonic Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aeroservoelastic (ASE) modeling and vehicle stability analysis are twomajor concerns in the accurate prediction of flight characteristics ofgeneric hypersonic vehicles (GHVs). We propose to develop an ASE modelingand vehicle stability analysis toolkit. System Identification (SI)-basedblack box models of CFD solvers is the primary focus in Phase I.Bifurcation and Chaos Theory Methodology (BACTM) is ...

  8. Lightweight Deformable Mirror Systems

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In this project, a lightweight membrane mirror device will be integrated into an adaptive control system, capable of correcting static and dynamic primary-mirror shape errors in a space-based telescope. The core innovation will be the use of a multi-zone, deformable mirror fabricated by thin-film surface micromachining. Contour shape of the mirror membrane will be controlled by an array of electro ...

  10. Novel Metal Organic Framework Synthesis for Spacecraft Oxygen Capture

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: T602

    Busek and University of Utah propose to develop novel metal organic framework (MOF) material to efficiently capture oxygen in spacecraft cabin environment. The proposed novel MOF is postulated to be capable of separating oxygen from ambient air with high efficiency, and at the same time, be stable to moisture and resistant to decomposition. In Phase I, our team shall synthesize the proposed MOF an ...
