  1. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  2. High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9020663R

    Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to perform a single measurement. Moreover, manufacturers are interested in comprehensive evaluation of thin ...

  3. Integrated Micro-Inertial Sensors For GPS Denied Navigation Using Fast-Light Enhanced Ring Laser Gyroscopes and Accelerometers

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131065

    ABSTRACT: For navigation of space platforms under GPS denied conditions, there is a need for micro-inertial sensors, with better accuracy and smaller volume and weight than the state of the art. We at Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) have been developing a superluminal ring laser gyroscope (SRLG) that can improve the accuracy of rotation sensing by nearly six orders of magnitude. Alternativel ...

  4. Non-Fluid Refrigeration Technology for Cooling Infrared Focal Planes and Other System Components below 50 K in Cryo-Vacuum Test Chambers

    SBC: FG SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF131182

    ABSTRACT: FG Systems proposes to develop a Solid State Magnetocaloric Refrigerator (SSMR) which will provide a means of cooling infrared focal planes and other system components to their operating temperatures without significant consumption of cryogens. The SSMR will be a low vibration level system suitable for space-borne and air-borne applications, as well as have a very high efficiency comp ...

  5. Oxidation Resistant Heating Elements for High Temperature Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: AF131189

    ABSTRACT: High temperature wind tunnels are needed to replicate the environment vehicles will experience during high Mach number flight. Of particular interest are sustained airflow temperatures of 2800 F. Although this level of performance has been obtained by two of NASA's wind tunnel facilities (i.e. High Temperature Tunnel (HTT) at Langley Research Center and Hypersonic Tunnel Facility ...

  6. Field Assessment of Materials for Use in Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: IllinoisRocstar LLC and Purdue University propose a framework that enables field assessment of particle size and shape for use in ultra-high performance concrete. We will implement portable scanning approaches for particle size measurement and combine this with high performance computer modeling to optimize altering particle size proportions. Critically, the framework will be implemente ...

  7. Cryodeposit Mitigation and Removal Techniques for Radiometric Calibration Chambers

    SBC: OPTICAL SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Optical Sciences Corporation (OSC) and the University of Alabama in Huntsville"s Center for Applied Optics (UAH/CAO) will demonstrate the feasibility and present a plan for developing optical instrumentation for the monitoring, mitigation, and removal of cryodeposits accumulated on optical and mechanical surfaces in cryogenic-vacuum radiometric calibration chambers. OSC will investigat ...

  8. METSI: Metadata Establishing Trust in SOA-based Information

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF112041

    ABSTRACT: Operating in a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment is risky because there is limited ability to gauge the quality of information, especially information that has been transformed multiple times as it flows within the SOA. To address this problem, CFDRC built METSI (Metadata Establishing Trust in SOA-based Information) to quantify the Quality of Information (QoI) using seven ...

  9. Strategically Radiation-Hardened Star Tracker

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF103114

    ABSTRACT: In today"s limited government budget environment, the push is towards smaller spacecraft with more rapid development times (

  10. Simulation of Small-Scale Damage Evolution During Processing of Polymer Matrix Materials Systems

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF121128

    ABSTRACT: This proposal presents two novel approaches for characterizing manufacturing induced damage in fibrous composites. New developments include integration of discontinuous Galerkin ideas with the variational multiscale finite element methods for the modeling of interface and interphase phenomena in these material systems. The second approach is developed for a mixture theory that is govern ...
