  1. Demonstration of a Local Carrier-Based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N14AT009

    Toyon Research Corporation, together with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) propose to demonstrate a GPS-denied Local Carrier-based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS) that enables 3-D position, navigation and time (PNT) for platforms within range of an aircraft carrier equipped with one or more ADEPT-compliant beacons. Unlike the Global Positioning System (GPS), which ...

  2. Object Cueing Using Biomimetic Approaches to Visual Information Processing

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N14AT008

    Thousands of years of evolution have produced the human vision system that computers cannot replicate well. Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. To successfully detect objects in cluttered scenes, the human brain is thought to rely on multiple factors: prior probabilities of object occurrence, global scene statistics and object co-occurrence. Machin ...

  3. Ultra-Coherent Semiconductor Laser Technology

    SBC: TELARIS INC            Topic: A14AT005

    Spontaneous emission is a quantum mechanical process that represents the main source of phase noise in state-of-the-art semiconductor lasers, limiting their coherence, and their suitability for high-speed communication and sensing applications. This proposal aims to develop ultra-high coherence semiconductor lasers on the Silicon/III-V platform with a quantum linewidth of

  4. Passive Radiometry Based Aerial Navigation

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT26

    ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. A preliminary design of such a PMMW system will be created. Under Phase-II th ...

  6. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  7. Terahertz Nano-Radio Platform with Integrated Antenna and Power source

    SBC: CREONEX SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A15AT005

    Recent demand for short-range communications has risen sharply for both the defense and commercial sectors. Tactical communications with a deployed sensor network require secure short-range communications and high network density to enable robust data fusion and collaborative sensing for enhanced situation awareness for the war fighters. The THz nano-radio technology being developed in this projec ...

  8. Proactive Contextual Decision Support for Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N13AT020

    Current decision tools often omit important situational context. Unfortunately, this can lead to dangerous and costly errors, as context drives decision making. For example, in operational navigation planning tasks, decisions must be made that rely on multiple information sources of different fidelities and uncertainties. Furthermore, after obtaining additional information the necessity for replan ...

  9. Micro-Particle Debris Characterization from Hyper-Velocity Impacts

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T002

    Leveraging the results of our Phase I work, the Torch Team proposes to execute laboratory-based experiments to elucidate fundamental micro-debris formation mechanisms to improve optical modeling of impacts. Optical signatures from impacts collected over the last decade have identified definitive micro-debris parameter trends. However, current theories have difficulty reproducing these optical ob ...

  10. Terahertz Nano-Radio Platform with Integrated Antenna and Power source

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for nano-scaled ultra-low-power low-cost radios to address field-deployable and massively producible sensing and communication networks in future military and commercial applications. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by exploiting the holistic integration of THz radio transceiver system, on-chip antenna ...
