  1. Next-Generation Modem Technology for High Threat Environments

    SBC: SAN DIEGO RESEARCH CENTER, INC.            Topic: SB032028

    San Diego Research Center (SDRC) and Brigham young University (SRJ technologies) propose to develop, build and demonstrate in hardware a highly adaptive OFDM Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) communications system for support of mobile military scenarios. In the proposed Phase 2 Base Program, the team will build, and demonstrate, in a base-band two-node "testbed" system that enables MIMO benef ...

  2. Large Phased-Array Antenna Multi-Beam Beamformers

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: SB022047

    DARPA has identified the need for very large mobile phased array antennas. The need includes theater area ground based systems, airborne systems, and space based systems. The antennas will range from 100,000 elements to greater than 1,000,000 elements. High performance beamforming networks are required. The antenna systems will require wide instantaneous bandwidth necessitating that the beamformer ...

  3. Design of Mobile, Wireless (Ad Hoc) Networks Using Smart Antennas

    SBC: SAN DIEGO RESEARCH CENTER, INC.            Topic: SB022024

    Smart antennas, with their ability to form multiple beams of arbitrary time-varying patterns, offer the means to achieve significant performance benefits in multi-hop mobile wireless networks. The realizable gains in performance depend upon the capabilities of the antennas and the algorithms employed to control the use of their transmission resources. In our Phase I the San Diego Research Center, ...

  4. Sensor Enabled 3D Model Generation

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB022042

    We propose to create a prototype of a shape and structure capture system which can construct accurate, realistic three dimensional models of typical commercial and residential building interiors from video imagery taken with a freely moving handheld camera. A precision inertial motion measurement unit will be developed and mounted on the camera and its measurements recorded with the video. We will ...

  5. Deep Ultraviolet Laser Diode for UV-Resonance Enhanced Raman Identification of Biological Agents

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB022043

    This proposal addresses the need for deep UV semiconductor lasers for use in UV resonance enhanced Raman spectroscopic identification of biological agents. The proposed approach avoids the problems of p-doping and ohmic contacts by using subminiature direct electron injection excitation of an InAlGaN heterostructure. We have demonstrated strong stimulated emission at 274nm using this approach with ...

  6. Small, Heavy Fuel, Compression Ignition Small UAV Engines

    SBC: THIN GAP CORP. (FORMERLY G & G TECHNOLOG            Topic: SB022050

    The specification of the MULE electric drive motor calls for constant power output from 28rpm to 280rpm. The physical envelope requirement is 14 inch outside diameter and no longer than 4 inches. Additionally the motor must provide for High torque at start up of1200 ft-lbs at 28 rpm for 500 seconds or 8.33 minutes. Heat removal at this high current and torque will need to be removed at a rate equ ...

  7. Real-Time Videogrammetry System for Navigation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: COGNITECH CORPORATION            Topic: SB021005

    This proposal presents Cognitech's Phase II extensions on the theoretical and computational Phase I study of automatic landing of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The Phase I report contained successful initial validation study with comparison of the platform positioning as estimated from visual and IR video sequences to the recorded GPS data. Our approach differs from other attempts to use images ...

  8. COGNITECTURET: Cognition-based, Integrative Architecture for Next Generation Intelligent Agents

    SBC: INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: SB031012

    This Phase II SBIR effort is concerned with implementing a new architecture for NGUAA and demonstrating its advantages with a representative sample of agent and human behavioral representation applications. This work will also implement development tools within the new architecture and demonstrate the architecture on realworld applications that require intelligent agents and applied cognitive mod ...

  9. A Uniform Hybrid Monte Carlo Method for Simulation of Rarefied Material Dynamics

    SBC: Level Set Systems            Topic: SB031003

    This proposal is for development and commercialization of the interpolated fluid/Monte Carlo (IFMC) method for rarefied gas dynamics (RGD). The prevalent computational method for RGD is the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method, which becomes computationally intractable in the near-continuum regime. The IFMC method accelerates DSMC in the near-continuum regime, removing this limitation. Tech ...

  10. Alternative Transducers for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: MAYUR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: SB031007

    The DARPA Phraselator currently deployed in overseas military operations is capable of translating spoken English language phrases into audible Pashto, Urdu, Dari, and Arabic language phrases. Although usable, the Phraselator is highly vulnerable to typical military environment noise resulting in significant loss of accuracy due to the limitations of existing microphone technology. Therefore the ...
