  1. Validation Experiments to Measure Transient Aerothermoelastic Response of a Curved Panel to Hypersonic Flows

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT24

    An experiment to obtain validation data on the transient aerothermoelastic response of a curved panel in hypersonic flows will be designed and evaluated for its feasibility. Significant challenges must be overcome for a successful experimental campaign i...

  2. Using Magnetic Levitation for Non-Destructive Detection of Defective and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: DLA15C001

    The introduction of substandard or counterfeit materials into the DoD supply chain can have extremely expensive, and potentially life threatening, consequences. Current techniques used to detect nonconforming materiel can be destructive (e.g., manual sectioning and inspection of a part), time consuming and expensive (e.g., micro-computed tomography, ultrasound), or provide only limited informatio ...

  3. Universal Multivariate Information Measures for Multisensor Inference (UMIMMI)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: AF16AT29

    Automatic target recognition (ATR)the identification of a potential target based on signatures in sensor datais fundamentally a question of information content. While ATR has been studied for decades, it remains a challenge because multifarious tar...

  6. ROBUST MOVING TARGET HANDOFF IN GPS-DENIED ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT34

    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are increasingly seen as a cornerstone in developing the future Defense infrastructure and it is critical that they collaborate efficiently and execute complex missions in denied environments. Although great progress has been made in GPS-denied navigation, the target handoff problem in GPS-denied environments has not been extensively studied. In this problem, a trac ...

  7. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...
