  1. A Tool for Computationally Steering Optimization Software

    SBC: MSSRC            Topic: AF05250

    New methods for improving optimization software using random techniques and visualization were proposed and shown feasible in Phase I of this effort using a prototype GUI implemented with OpenGL. The Phase II effort presents five technical tasks necessary to put these ideas into practice. The first implements new algorithms for random methods using number theory, finite field theory, and advance ...

  2. Algorithms for Stereo Image Creation from a Sequence of Two Dimensional Images

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF05011

    Stellar Science has developed innovative techniques capable of autonomously converting standard 2D image sequences into 3D stereo movies, and has successfully tested these techniques on a wide variety of space surveillance imagery. Our algorithm first solves for the satellite’s shape and motion using a feature based technique, and then uses this information to select and combine suitable stereo ...

  4. Developing Bioinformatics Tools for Proteomics Research

    SBC: SEIRAD, INC.            Topic: AF05073

    There continues to be a robust commercial market for innovative bioinformatics software to aid in the interpretation of proteomics and genomics data. Given an mRNA or protein expression experiment, researchers need to link the observed changes to inferences about phenomena upstream and downstream of the point in time that the experiment represents. Building on the successful Phase I prototype, we ...

  5. Computer Architectures for Understanding: CBNX

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF05109

    Situation awareness involves the real-time understanding of emerging events, impacts, threats, and effective responses. Situation awareness requires the mutual interplay of perception, comprehension, and anticipation to dynamically refocus attention, adapting sensor and cognitive resources to accurately track unfolding events. The objective of this research is to continue development of a computat ...

  6. osives- Computational research and development of robust, flexible, and compact munitions based on advanced fuel-air and energetic material mixtures.

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF05153

    Volumetric explosives offer unique advantages to the development of advanced munitions. They have high energy density, excellent coupling to targets, and potentially lower collateral damage compared with existing blast and fragmentation weapons. Under Phase I SBIR funding, NumerEx has developed a high fidelity modeling capability to simulate the evolution of volumetric explosives under a variety ...

  7. Manufacturing Engineering Development and Weaponization of Bonded Components For Lethal Air-to-Air Warheads

    SBC: HYTEC, INC.            Topic: AF05170

    For a variety of warhead concepts, both for air-to-air applications and ground-based, it is desirable to explore new material combinations that provide enhanced lethality and functionality. For example, it may be desirable to combine materials that have high density with those having pyrophoric or other properties. In such advanced air-based weapons systems such as PIOS (Programmable Integrated ...

  8. Ultra-Lightweight, High-efficiency (45%) Si-Based Triple Junction Solar

    SBC: EpiWorks, Inc.            Topic: AF05023

    Next-generation satellites require increased payload mass and power budget capabilities. Ultra lightweight, 40% efficient solar cells employing Silicon substrates will allow for a significant power level scale up for a fixed solar panel size. The purpose of this proposal is to successfully demonstrate a high-efficiency Si-based solar cell technology. To achieve this goal, we ultimately will dev ...

  9. Ultra High Speed Aero Optics Compensation

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: AF05010

    Aberrations due to aero optics effects around a turret in flight cause degradation of any optical beam traversing the turret. The degradation causes reduction in system performance of directed energy weapons in terms of the lethality range and increased dwell time as the energy on target is reduced. Kestrel Corporation has developed a new wavefront sensors based on measuring the curvature of the ...

  10. High-Resolution Wide-Dynamic-Range MEMS-Based Closed-Loop Adaptive Optics System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF05003

    AgilOptics’ Phase I SBIR proposed the development of a moire¢ Wave-Front Sensor (MWFS) test-bed to evaluate the MWFS design developed and patented by the University of New Mexico (UNM) and to extend the design for use in a closed-loop Adaptive Optic (AO) system with a Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Deformable Mirror (DM) corrector. Our Phase I results have shown that the MWFS provides i ...
