  1. Robust Communications

    SBC: FROST COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB052019

    The Frost Secure Waveform (FSW), secures the RF carrier itself, Layer-1 of the OSI Reference Model, as a discrete transmission element, as opposed to the information it carries. The signal becomes part of the WGN rendering it almost invisible except to intended communicants and even if detected, is extremely difficult to acquire. The bandwidth transparent technology takes advantage of maturing D ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Manufacturing Assembly Technology for Producing Low-Cost Mini SEMs

    SBC: ZYVEX Corporation            Topic: SB031017

    This program will provide a key manufacturing breakthrough for high-performance inexpensive miniature SEMs. We plan to develop a MEMS, microassembly-based, fully functional mini-SEM having 1/10,000 the volume of current units. Zyvex is a dynamic small firm with a highly qualified technical team, experienced management, and the advantage of a $25M / 5 year NIST-ATP award that is funding the continu ...

  4. Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB032039

    The Systems and Process Engineering Corporation (SPEC) will develop the Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL) which will use a proven high accuracy phase detected range circuit to determine range profiling to 1/8-inch accuracy. This circuit allows the ISL to operate as a Class I eye-safe device and still achieve the needed range. The ISL also utilizes ultra short pulse lengths, allowing improved signal ...

  5. A Novel Integrated Emotional State Recognition System Using 3D Imaging and Thermal Analysis

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: SB032038

    A critical drawback of existing automatic facial expression classification, gesture analysis, and emotional state recognition technology is the lack of integrated and complimentary measurement modalities to perform reliable cognitive and emotional state assessment in operational environment. The purpose of this SBIR is to develop a novel, integrated sensor that incorporates three sensing modaliti ...

  6. Cognitive Processing Hardware Elements

    SBC: HOPLITE SYSTEMS LLC.            Topic: SB041019

    Hoplite Systems LLC proposes to implement the Soar cognitive architecture within a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). This system, called the RAISE (Reconfigurable Architecture for Improved Soar Execution) will demonstrate that an FPGA's parallel, reconfigurable, multi-clock capabilities enable significantly better Soar processing performance than a traditional CPU. Hoplite will also develop ...

  7. Hardware Architectures for Flexible Component-Based Hybrid Cognitive Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB041019

    Creating a realization of cognitive processes, reasoning, and behavior is a challenging problem due to its size, scope and complexity. Current realizations of cognitive systems are software based and typically implemented on conventional von Neumann processors. However, performance is a constraining factor in applications that require extensive testing, training and learning as well as in the im ...

  8. Frameworks for Semantic Integration of Intelligent Sensor Processing Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB072023

    The problem of unifying symbolic knowledge and concept representations and systems with the sensor inputs from the external environment is fundamental to the development of autonomous sensor-to-symbol systems. Existing approaches do not provide ways for allowing systems to rapidly incorporate new knowledge. The proposed sensor-to-symbol framework addresses the following key capabilities: • Provi ...

  9. A Practical Transcription System for the Hearing Impaired

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB072014

    In this proposal, we propose a novel handheld system to automatically identify the current speaker and recognize his/her speech. The system consists of several parts. First, the acoustic signal collected by the commercial off-the-shelf array microphone is first passed through the state machine based speech segmentation module to extract the speech segments. The speech segments are then enhanced by ...

  10. A General Framework of Image Fusion for Concealed Weapon Detection

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB062018

    Image fusion has demonstrated its effectiveness for remote sensing in general and concealed weapon detection (CWD) in particular. Although a number of research efforts have been made in this area, several issues still remain. First, most of existing schemes perform image fusion at pixel-level and their performances are not always satisfactory. Second, image fusion is commonly considered as a sing ...
