  1. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  5. Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning to Improve Maneuver of Robotic/Autonomous Systems

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A17AT019

    Robotic autonomous systems (RAS) are currently being used for many different applications using a wide variety of vehicle platforms. The environments in which RAS are being used are becoming increasingly complex. Vehicle path planning and control is challenging in environments with many obstacles and uneven terrain. This proposed research will develop and compare multiple techniques to improve veh ...

  10. Bioaerosol Detector Wide Area Network

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: A17AT020

    Historically, the monitoring and detection of biological threats has been carried out via the deployment of high sensitivity / high complexity monitoring nodes to insure high probability of detection and low false alarm rate. Unfortunately, this detection strategy has inherent limits with respect to coverage and response due to its high deployment/support costs, mandating a new approach to environ ...
