  1. MAVIS: A Robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV

    SBC: ETOVIA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    We shall investigate, implement and demonstrate MAVIS, a 3D vision system incorporating robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV application scenarios. Automatic pose determination and extraction of 3D structure of the environment are critical to autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance of SMAVs in constrained and crowded environments. Extracting such state information under various constraints (low qual ...

  2. Chemical and Explosive Vapor Detection in Shipping Containers with Remotely Accessed Microcantilever Array Sensors

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: SB041005

    The remarkable sensitivity, compactness, low cost, low power-consumption, scalability, and versatility of microcantilever sensors make this technology possibly the best solution for container screening. In Phase I, Nevada Nanotech Systems (NNTS) successfully demonstrated all components of a prototype sensor system for measuring the concentrations of unlawful or hazardous materials in shipping con ...

  3. Integrated Optical Bus Interface Module

    SBC: T NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: SB041007

    The following phase II proposal is intended to further extend the dynamic range and reduce the form factor of the EA based transmitters fabricated during the phase I portion of this work. The dynamic range proposed and form factor proposed are in excess of any previously obtained and are crucial to future mixed signal WDM photonic systems.

  4. Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: IRIMSENS, LLC            Topic: SB062015

    A Phase I effort to investigate the use of poly-crystalline Ge-on-Si and strained SiGe alloy grown on silicon for near-infrared photodetectors is proposed. These devices are expected to cover the spectral band that stretches from a wavelength of 0.8 to 1.6 microns. If reasonable performance devices can be fabricated, this will potentially pave the way for the integration of signal processing e ...

  5. Adaptive Command and Collaboration within Network-Centric Operations using Insight from Contextualized Network Visualization, Analysis

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB043042

    The evolution of network-centric environments increasingly provides access to more data and collaborators relevant to decision making. Unfortunately, it also means the decision-maker increasingly needs to efficiently and effectively utilize that data in order to stay competitive. In network-centric warfare the consequences of less than optimal performance can be extremely serious. With the deploym ...

  6. Fundamental Interactions Generating Heterogeneous Teams including Robots (FIGHT-R)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB062009

    Fully autonomous, taskable robots for use in unconstrained environments are still a dream rather than a reality because of a host of problems, including capabilities of existing sensors, effectors, and control/planning software. Indeed, concepts of operations for robot use require that robots collaborate directly with humans, in relationships similar to bomb squad dogs. Fortunately, enough progres ...

  7. CAD Model and CR and MRI Scan Data to MCNP Input Format Conversion Software

    SBC: White Rock Science            Topic: N/A

    We will develop two programs to process data describing a model geometry and convert it to input acceptable to the Monte Carlo transport codes MCNP and MCNPX. One program will read CAD files in the ACIS solid body SAT format. Solid bodies, surfaces, and cells described in the SAT file will be converted to equivalent MCNP objects where available. Where there is no MCNP equivalent, such as for splin ...

  8. Piezoelectric Single Crystal Applications- Development of Highly Directional Sonobuoys Using Scalar, Vector, and Dyadic Sensors

    SBC: Acoustech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Acoustech plans a two-year effort aimed at evaluating acoustic dyadic sensors for prospective use in directional sonobuoys utilized by the U. S. Navy. The chief sonobuoys targeted in this study are the AN/SSQ-53 DIFAR, AN/SSQ-77 VLAD, and AN/SSQ-62 DICASSunits. The DIFAR and VLAD buoys are passive devices that have a bandwidth of 5 - 2400 Hz, whereas the DICASS buoy is an active device that has ...

  9. Miniature Directional Microphone for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phraselator, a handheld automatic translation device, currently uses a cardioic microphone as an input for automatic speech recognition (ASR). This microphone is highly vulnerable to performance degradation in typical noisy military environments and,thus, there is a need for an improved transducer for this application. We propose to develop a new directional microphone that is immune to extr ...
