  1. Accurate Open Architecture Air Vehicle Modeling and Simulation (AOAVMS)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: In order to effectively utilize multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for missions such as Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), Strike, etc., it is vital to have Open Architecture (OA) tools that accurately model and simulate the interaction of autonomous, unmanned, and manned air vehicles. Daniel H. Wagner Associates (DHWA) proposes to develop automated, efficient, O ...

  2. A High Fidelity, Physics-based Mid-IR Bismides Semiconductor Laser Simulator for High Power Outputs

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT27

    ABSTRACT: Recently quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) and interband cascade lasers (ICLs) have progressed steadily in the 3.5 10 m range with optical powers < 0.5 W. However, these devices rely on complicated band alignment and large numbers of repeating quantum wells which pose significant challenges in device fabrication. Furthermore, the sub-Watt power limitation and poor wall-plug efficiencies (W ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Brahms Contested Airspace Simulation Testbed (Brahms-CAST)

    SBC: Aqru Research and Technology, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: Remarkable advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and human-systems integration are providing aircrew with cockpit automation systems of unprecedented sophistication. Onboard intelligent assistants monitor the aircraft, interpret and carry out pilot commands, and advise the pilot (onboard or remote) as to aircraft and system status, mission progress, threats and alerts. Because pilots ...
