  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. Advanced Microcalorimeter Instrumentation for X-Ray Microanalysis

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    An innovative superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter array with superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) readouts is described for high energy and high spatial resolution X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and microanalysis. The proposed microcalorimeter instrument offers an energy resolution that is comparable to and potentially even better than wavelength disp ...

  8. Non-intrusive Multimodal Emotional State Monitoring

    SBC: VideoMining Corporation            Topic: SB032038

    This SBIR Phase I proposal will conduct an exploratory study to establish the feasibility of a multimodal framework for monitoring the emotion of a person using an non-intrusive sensor suite that includes video, audio, and thermal sensing. This will lead to the development of a portable gauge for robustly monitoring the emotional state of people in operational environments. The following five dyna ...

  9. SpinnerBot

    SBC: AUTOMATIKA, INC.            Topic: SB041018

    We propose to develop a highly capable disaster-response robotic system called SpinnerBot for use in confined and/or collapsed-structures for survivor search, site-investigation and -assessment. SpinnerBot will: 1) Provide for a small and light footprint and have a user-friendly GUI; 2) Allow for long-term deployment of at least 12 hours or more; 3) Be capable of carrying crucial sensor-modalitie ...

  10. Lightweight Beam Director

    SBC: BRASHEAR LP            Topic: N/A

    The Lightweight Beam Director Phase II effort will develop a beam director and beam control concept for use in DARPA programs. Brashear LP will incorporate advanced, lightweight mirror designs, innovative design approaches, advanced/lightweight materials and new control systems approaches as necessary to develop a beam director concept suitable for use with the DARPA lasers under development.
