  1. Auto-Docking Autonomous Burial Vehicle (AD-ABV)

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N11AT017

    Subsequent Phase II Proposal, extension of Phase II contract N00039-12-C-0082. This contract involves the development of an underwater vehicle that can reliably and autonomously interconnect power and data cables to undersea nodes after they have been deployed. The Auto-Docking Autonomous Burial Vehicle (AD-ABV) is a cable-connecting adaptation of Makai’s proven ABV, which has been successfully ...

  2. Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N14AT016

    In this STTR, Daniel H. Wagner Associates, together with the University of Michigan (UM), will develop a Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS). The proposed DASS is a set of software modules which solves the probabilistic passive sonar equation (PSE) using given environmental acoustic data, assesses submarine vulnerability based on intelligence about potential threat ASW assets, recomme ...

  3. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...

  4. Revolutionary Airlift Innovation

    SBC: Logistic Gliders Inc.            Topic: ST14B004

    We propose to mature LG-X glider technology by manufacturing full-scaled prototypes and characterizing them in land-based flight-testing by using commercial aircraft to drop the gliders. Validated components such as the landing parachute, folding wing mechanism, and autopilot control system will undergo integrated flight-testing. Logistic Gliders will provide a considerable cost share to support ...

  5. Dim Target Extraction and Conjoint Tracking (DTECT) Enhancements for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA12T004

    Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) platforms observe challenging threat and scene phenomenology. Toyon Research Corporation developed an image processing framework for clutter estimation/suppression and track-before-detect to jointly detect and track targets. The Target Extraction and Conjoint Tracking application, developed under initial Phase II funding and demonstrated using real-world data so ...

  6. Nanocomposite Scandate Tungsten Powder for High Current Density and Long Life Thermionic Cathodes

    SBC: Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N15AT010

    Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. (VPE), in collaboration with the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), proposes to develop and quantitatively verify a large scale production process for scandate tungsten nanocomposite powder to be used in high current density and long life cathodes during the Phase II effort. The plan for implementation of the large scale production process at VPE with powd ...

  7. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...

  8. Advanced Hit Detection Systems

    SBC: FREENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA13015

    FreEnt Technologies, Inc. (FreEnt) and Johns Hopkins Universitys Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) are proposing a multiple-hit detection sensor called the Optical Lethality Measurement System (OLMS). This system is based on the Planar Optical Penetration Sensor (POPS) technology (originally developed and patented by APL) and prior art associated with the Blast Initiation Detector (BID). The BID is ...

  10. Decision Making under Uncertainty

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Our proposed second order uncertainty (SOU) product is a decision making software solution that addresses the problem of providing accurate and precisely defined decision courses of action (COAs) of complex, time-constrained problems in a fraction of the time required by alternative methods striving to achieve the same level of precision. Complex decision situations can deal with large volume of ...
