  1. High Fidelity Synthesis of Dynamic Social Networks using Measurement-based Calibration

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    We propose to develop a high fidelity approach of synthesizing measurement-calibrated dynamic social networks. Social network research needs access to realistic graph datasets for testing social network theory and developing network algorithms. However, the available social network data are either typically small or cannot be readily shared due to privacy issues. To address these challenges, a uni ...

  2. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: TRX SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Military personnel often operate within urban, cavernous, foliage covered or indoor environments. In these areas, position navigation and time information becomes difficult and in some cases impossible to deduce from GPS signals alone. Under the proposed effort TRX will develop and implement an Android-based application that delivers GPS-denied navigation and mapping for tactical battlefield use ...

  3. VHF/UHF Emitter Localization Based on DOA Fusion with Two UAS

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: SB111004

    I-Fusion presents a emitter localization technique based on the fusion of DOA obtained at two flying small UAS. Each UAS is equipped with a nonlinear smart antenna system for signal detection and DOA estimation and a GPS receiver for time synchronization and UAS localization. The whole desired frequency band is scanned using hierarchical coarse and fine searching method to maintain the scanni ...

  4. Visually Guided Robotic Hand / Eye Coordination

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB092005

    The proposed work leverages the prototypes developed in the Phase I project toward refinement of a machine vision system for visually guided manipulation. In Phase II, the machine vision system modules of image feature detection, object detection, pose estimation, and tracking will be generalized to handle a wide range of deformable objects. A new four fingered hydraulic end effector will be fa ...

  5. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB102002

    The need for obtaining real-time spatial and environmental awareness has driven the development and subsequent deployment of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs). Current UGV operator control units (OCUs) lag behind advances in unmanned vehicle technologies and remain bulky, heavy, unintuitive, and power-hungry. Additionally, these systems are"stovepiped"in that they ...

  6. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB103001

    The next generation of high-degree-of-freedom robots require not only significant strength but efficient, quiet operation and effective control policies if they are to perform to expectations. Vecna proposes a systems approach that includes Smart Hydraulic Actuator (SHA) technology, an intelligent Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU), and intelligent control to vastly improve hydraulic efficiency and reduce ...

  7. CAD Tool for Radio Communications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB103007

    Communications radios consist of an increasingly large and complex set of waveforms. The amount of time and effort needed to transform a waveform design into an implementation and perform necessary testing and validation, combined with system integration tasks, commonly results in a development period of several years. Therefore, we propose a CAD tool for the domain of communications waveform de ...

  8. In Situ Collection of Human Social Cultural Behavioral Data

    SBC: INTELLIGENT MODELS, INC            Topic: OSD10HS2

    Human Social and Cultural Behavior (HSCB) models are increasingly used to provide critical support to US military decision making. HSCB models are highly reliant on data; they need data from many sources, types, and areas of human behavior. The concomitant data streams have variable data quality and are constantly changing. Despite these challenges, HSCB models may need near real-time access to th ...

  9. A Dynamic Warehousing and Mining System for Large-Scale Human Social Cultural Behavioral Data

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: OSD10HS2

    We propose to develop a novel Dynamic Warehousing and Mining (DWM) framework for in-situ collection and analysis of Human Social Cultural Behavior (HSCB) data. DWM is a large-scale, dynamic approach for maximizing the ability of intelligence analyst of various kinds to collect, organize and analyze text-based communication to assess HSCB dimensions for a given group and predict current belief stat ...

  10. Heat Rejection at Low Air Density for Very High Altitude Aircraft

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: SB082063

    The modeling of our heat transfer concepts and the examination of experimental test configurations has led to a test device comprised of several elements: a thermoelectric cooling and power conditioning stage, a waveform generation stage, and a pulsed discharge cooler stage. The proposed Phase II work discussed here is predominantly focused on a laboratory demonstration of the pulsed discharge st ...
