  1. Advanced Tactical Threat Warning Radio

    SBC: NETWORKFAB CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05008

    In today's tactical areas of operation, signal threat detection is one of the integral aspects of the SOF mission. In nearly all regions where SOF operations take place, there is a need for the ability to detect enemy communications (known and unknown) and DF on their locations. Additionally, SOF units have a critical need for short range tactical communications to stay in contact with other uni ...

  2. An Intelligent tutoring System Approach to Adaptive Instructional Systems

    SBC: WaveBand Corporation            Topic: N/A

    WaveBand Corporation proposes to develop a new type of reduced size flexible or rigid antennas that can be mounted on the web gear or the vest of a tactical user. The requirements of both omni-directional and directional antennas as well as of multibandoperation will be satisfied within a fractal design approach. Based on the antennas, a system for directional and direction finding operations will ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Automated Crowd Modeling / Monitoring System

    SBC: VIDIENT SYSTEMS            Topic: SOCOM06014

    Vidient proposes a computer-aided video/audio surveillance system to detect, monitor, understand and anticipate crowd behavior. Audio and video sensors were selected because they are low cost, portable, passive, and if mounted properly, are difficult to detect visually. A robust crowd detection and interpretation method using a Bayesian fusion framework to integrate multiple video/audio processing ...

  5. Automated Cueing Using Motion Detection and Extraction

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM06001

    To address SOCOM needs for advanced man portable surveillance technologies, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new system for Automated Cueing using Motion detection and Extraction (ACME). ACME is structured around a new hybrid motion detection and object recognition software kernel based on feed-forward neural networks, and state-of-the-art statistical algorithms, capable of ...

  6. Automated Detection and Cueing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM06001

    Infrared (IR) imagery provides a rich source of information for target detection, feature-based tracking, and identification. Yet, variable operating conditions, including sensor range, viewing angle, as well as target illumination and degree of occlusion, have so far prevented the development and effective deployment of a complete solution for real-time target identification. While much attention ...

  7. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Data resources available for automatic feature extraction (AFE) have expanded significantly in the last few years. Available sensor data now includes high-resolution multispectral and hyperspectral sensors, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), and accurate height measurement sensors such as LIDAR and interferometric SAR (IFSAR). Current AFE tools are unable to fuse and process all the new types of se ...

  8. Body Air Ventilation System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM06009

    To address the U.S. SOCOM need for an individual microcooling system that can be used with HMMWVs and FMTVs, operate while mounted in the vehicle, and function for limited periods while dismounted, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new modular Body Air Ventilation (BAV) system that does not contain any circulating heat transfer fluid. Each module is powered either separately ...

  9. Development of a High Sensitivity Laser-induced Incandescence Instrument for Characterizing Soot and Carbonaceous Particles

    SBC: Artium Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    A high sensitivity laser-induced incandescence system is proposed for the detailed characterization of environmental soot. The Phase 1 effort has clearly demonstrated the feasibility of (1) reducing the lower detection limit of soot volume fraction and increasing the overall measurement range by at least 2 orders of magnitude from what is currently achievable, and (2) providing PM particle size me ...

  10. Digital Electronic Scanning Holographic Particles Sensor

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM05009

    To address the U.S. SOCOM need for a particle sensor and monitoring/warning system to be integrated into aircraft engine air inlets and air intakes to environmental control systems (ECSs), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Digital Electronic Scanning Holographic (DESH) particle sensor. The proposed DESH sensor is based on real-time digital holography (electronic holograp ...
