  1. A Neural Network-based System for Automated Detection of Wire Insulation Chafing from TDR/FDR Data

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to develop an automated system for identification and characterization of chafing in the aircraft wiring. Chafing degrades wiring integrity and can lead to shorts and/or damaged data pathways. Shorts have been associated with deadly in-flight fires. Damaged data pathways have caused engine shutdowns, loss of control, and other safety hazards. Currently recognizing and measurin ...

  2. Application of Turbine Engines in Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Craft

    SBC: MARINE TURBINE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The objective is to modify and test gas turbine engines presently installed in/on marine craft to demonstrate that by adapting technology used on street legal vehicles can be used to reduce the heat and noise levels in marine craft. Whether or not the IR15dB level or lower, and the above water acoustic/noise level to 60dB level or lower can be achieved, is a matter that can only be demostrated by ...

  3. Calibration of an Autonomous Navigation System Using GPS and Machine Learning

    SBC: Sierra Nevada Corporation            Topic: N/A

    GPS receivers are heavily used in aviation for both visual and instrument flights. There is a need for a backup system so that enroute and non-precision approaches can be flown without reliance on ground based systems should GPS be unavailable. We propose to use barometric pressure, airspeed, low-cost inertial sensors, three-axis magnetometer along with high-fidelity geomagnetic models, and an ...

  4. Extreme Environment Hand-Wear system

    SBC: Kreamer Sports, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Our Phase I study proved the feasibility of using monofilament carbon tow and thin resistant wire in a glove system to provide an adequate heat source to keep a soldier's hands comfortable in extreme cold temperatures while retaining hand dexterity andtactility. Our objectives during Phase II are to (1) incorporate our heat generation process into a super thin, non-melting, flame-rerardant materi ...

  5. Individual Cooling Equipment

    SBC: R*BAT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06009

    Special Operations forces (SOF) operate in all weather conditions. It has identified a need for a micro-cooling system that can be vehicle mounted and man-portable, as well as provide a capability to cool vehicle mounted communications and electronics equipment. To meet the needs of SOF the system must be small, lightweight, quiet, low power, and gasless. We propose a compact micro-cooling system ...

  6. SOF Tactical Information Assistant

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR Project will involve performance of a study to evaluate current commercial display technologies, head-mounted and wrist-mounted display configurations, and software that could fulfill the SOF requirements. The study will emphasizeidentification of the best display at the lowest power consumption. Based on the evaluation of current practice, innovative technology ideas will be pre ...

  7. Video Detection and Image Processing Systems for Traffic Law Enforcement

    SBC: DIGITAL TRAFFIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Digital Traffic Systems, Inc. has previously developed and sells commercially an Intelligent Camera System that interprets video images of the road traffic and computes traffic parameters including: Queue Length (Vehicle count), Flow Speed (miles per hour), Density (vehicles per mile), volume (vehicles per hour), Lane Occupancy (percent of lance occupied) and Headway (average distance| feet betwe ...
