  1. ACCESS: Automated Comparison and Clustering of Entity Signatures

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: N092149

    Available features to detect personas vary depending on the type of intelligence one is observing, and only facets of a persona are observable in each medium. New and enabling technology needs to be developed to search, capture, compare and identify disparate behaviors that may represent personas of interest. In response to this challenge, 21st Century Technologies proposed the Phase 1 Automated C ...

  2. A Compact Visual-Odometry Sensor for UGVs

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A09203

    This is a proposal to design a compact visual odometry sensor that can be mounted on unmanned ground vehicles. Visual odometry (VO) is a technique that estimates the ego-motion from images perceived by moving cameras. A self-contained visual odometry sensor would provide several significant benefits to unmanned ground vehicles, including: 1) providing position information to platforms that do not ...

  3. Acoustic Vector Projector Technology

    SBC: LewTech Company, Inc.            Topic: N102181

    Although the performance of naval systems for Anti-Submarine Warfare and Counter-Torpedo Detection, Classification, and Localization systems are presently adequate for current missions they are limited by the size, power and detection range of the associated sonar transducer arrays. What is required for the emerging missions are approaches that will reduce the volume and weight of present arrays w ...

  4. Adjustable Autonomy for Intelligent Operation of Mobile Manipulators

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A11aT032

    In recent years, the military has been integrating robotic systems into tasks previously performed entirely manually by soldiers. Examples include explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), surveillance and reconnaissance, urban search and rescue (USAR), chemical, biological, and nuclear (CBN) operations, and medical assistance and evacuation. A typical application is for a soldier (remote operator) to te ...

  5. Advanced Dielectric Insulation Techniques for High Voltage Pulsed Power Systems

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: AF093014

    ABSTRACT: The proposed phase II effort would work to establish new advanced insulation techniques and their corresponding design guidelines that could be employed to reduce the volume existing pulsed power systems, improve their reliability, and possibly improve their mechanical integrity. Additionally, the design of a new pulser is proposed, which will be based on the insulation schemes identifi ...

  6. Advanced Flight Controls for Ultra-agile Small Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: Lite Machines Corporation            Topic: N102172

    The proposed research will explore innovative flight control methodologies combining recent advances in system identification, novel flight sensors, and neural network based adaptive flight control design to develop a new, high bandwidth flight controller architecture capable of rejecting the disturbing effects of wind gusts and turbulence. The proposed controller architecture will be most appropr ...

  7. Advanced Gas Turbine Engine Exhaust Waste Heat Recovery System


    Navy ships use of gas turbine engines for both main propulsion and electrical power generation. With typical simple cycle thermal efficiencies of around 32-35%, a great deal of energy is lost as exhaust waste heat from the gas turbines. Clearly there is a need to develop systems that can recover as much as possible of this waste energy, and as stated in the program goal, achieve at least a 20% red ...

  8. Advanced Hybrid Energy System for Wet and Dry Submersibles

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N092132

    The demand for greater and safer energy storage for the wet and dry submersibles and buoys has pushed the limits of current battery technology. This energy demand is in response to the need for extended mission operations and advances in electronic equipment needed for greater combat effectiveness. By replacing the existing battery with a fuel cell hybrid system, extended operation periods are pos ...

  9. Advanced low-power personnel/vehicle detecting radar for smart unattended ground sensor/munition systems

    SBC: Mustang Technology Group, L.P.            Topic: A09113

    As an essential part of the roadmap to develop an ultra low power radar system, Mustang Technology Group proposes to design, fabricate and test circuit boards that demonstrate a reduction in power of the current VIPER radar by more than half.

  10. Advanced Modular, Energy Storage Technology

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N091053

    The overall objective of the Phase I and Phase II proposed effort is to design, test and demonstrate the ability of a 500 kW test bed prototype energy storage module to withstand a shipboard environment. The Phase I tradeoff design studies sized and identified a shock tolerant flywheel energy storage modular system configuration that will yield the desired power and energy densities while also hav ...
