  1. A Novel Coverglass System with Enhanced Radiation Resistance

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF04029

    The Foster-Miller team is developing a novel coverglass system that protects photovoltaic cells on space power systems that are exposed to high doses of ionizing radiation. The spectrum of radiation a solar cell is exposed to not only provides usable energy, over time it also reduces the efficiency of the cell by darkening the barrier coverglass, escalates the operating temperature, and deteriora ...

  2. Bayesian Troop-Target Detection, Tracking, and Prediction Using FOPEN-GMTI Radar

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB041024

    The "troop-target" problem of automatic detection, tracking, and prediction of the formations of dismounted ground troops concealed in foliage, using FOPEN-GMTI radars introduces challenges well beyond those encountered in more conventional group-target problems. AD HOC troop formations are considerably more amorphous and unpredictable and they must be deduced from the constituent individuals. Y ...

  3. A Robust Image Based Navigation System for an Air Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N03025

    The objectives of this project (Phase I and II) are to develop an automated, robust, and reliable image based navigation system for an air vehicle. Phase I (1) developed a mathematical foundation for motion image navigation, (2) formulated the mathematical basis for processing a series of sensed frames to generate the terrain profile and correlating the profile to a pre-defined reference map to ...

  4. The Robotic Mule

    SBC: BOSTON DYNAMICS            Topic: A03242

    We propose to develop Legged Robot Mule, a new kind of robot that helps dismounted soldiers by carrying part of their load. Legged Robot Mule will travel on operationally relevant terrain, such as narrow mountain trails and densely wooded jungles. It will use dynamic balance to support its payload while maintaining a narrow base, enhancing its mobility. It will use computer vision to follow a hum ...

  5. Si-N-B-C Aerogels for Thermal Protection System of Reentry Vehicles

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: AF04031

    The Air Force has an interest in new designs and new materials for TPS of hypersonic reentry vehicles. Military hypersonic vehicles will reenter the atmosphere according to trajectories that are more aggressive than that of the Space Shuttle Orbiter and expected to be able to maneuver in the atmosphere at speeds around March 20 for more than 4100 seconds. This will result in the extremely high t ...

  6. Hydrogel Activated Bulkhead Shaft Seal

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N04073

    Midé is proposing to complete the development of a hydrogel activated bulkhead shaft seal for the DDG-51 class ships. The purpose of a bulkhead seal is to prevent flooding between compartments along the main propulsion shafting. The current shipbuilder specifications require that the bulkhead shaft seal must be self-activating with a maximum leakage rate of 1 US pt/min for DDG ships. The probl ...

  7. Metadata Generation

    SBC: CHILIAD PUBLISHING, INC.            Topic: AF04097

    Chiliad's Phase II effort will further enhance, extend, integrate, and demonstrate in a pilot its distributed collaborative analysis suite. This software currently provides enterprise-wide data fusion; contextual search; full text analysis; on-the-fly concept recognition; automatic metadata generation and extraction; dynamic knowledge navigation and discovery; real-time monitoring, filtering and r ...

  8. Robust Stern Launch and Recovery System for UUVs, USVs and Manned Underwater and RHID-Type Vessels [7285-021]

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N03056

    Conventional Launch and Recovery systems do not function automatically, at high ship speeds and in moderate sea states. The proposed system utilizes a unique concept of a deployable, largely open, flexible, “belt” conveyor ramp that can operate through and below the water surface in the wake of the ship with minimal drag. The open belt allows both manned and unmanned surface and subsurface c ...

  9. Light Weight/High Performance ALON Transparency for Ballistic Protection

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: AF04151

    Polycrystalline aluminum oxynitride, ALON Optical Ceramic, has long been identified as the premier transparent armor material. However, until recently it was very expensive and available only in small pieces, and small quantities. ALON windows and domes are now available, through Surmet Corporation, in larger sizes and at lower costs than ever before. However, considerable additional cost reductio ...

  10. Coalition Shared Database Implementation

    SBC: Parietal Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF04117

    TIA Research will continue the development of an approach for supporting the efficient storage, dissemination and retrieval of Ground Moving Target Indicator and Synthetic Aperture RADAR imagery within a distributed database. We will achieve this by implementing the results obtained during the Phase I efforts that addressed the key elements of the problem: (1) the design of data structures for sup ...
