  1. 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 ...

  3. Highly Repetitive Power Modulators for Mobile Applications

    SBC: Transient Plasma Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT07

    Experimental data from a number of DoD supported research programs have indicated that electrical systems capable of producing highly repetitive bursts of high voltage, fast risetime pulses are a critical enabling technology for applications tied to nonequilibrium physical processes, such as combustion, boundary layer flow, and the generation of high power EM waves. Recognizing the important role ...

  4. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The U. S. Air Force needs turbulent combustion models that can be used to simulate combustion in actual propulsion systems at both design and off-design conditions, not models that are only useful for highly idealized problems. With this motivation in mind, Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc. and the Computational Combustion Lab at Georgia Tech plan to enhance current capabilities to ...

  5. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT07

    In this program, HyPerComp and University of Michigan have teamedtogether to develop a high-order grid generator for Euler and viscousmeshes. The grid generator is based on HyPerComps successful generalpurpose CAD2Mesh software and is being integrated with HyPerCompsHDphysics and U. Michigans XFlow DG high-order solvers. High-order gridgeneration methods are being implemented to accurately capture ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Environmentally-Compliant Kinetic Metallization Coating Materials for Corrosion and Wear Protection of Military Aircraft and Weapon Systems

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT31

    Coating materials and coating methods used to protect U.S. military aircraft and weapon systems from corrosion and wear are in need of environmentally benign alternatives in order to keep up with dynamic regulations associated with environment, safety, and occupational health. Thus, the Air Force is supporting research to develop alternatives to the dangerous materials identified on the OSD Emergi ...
