  1. Bayesian Variable Resolution Modeling for Autonomous Satellite Cluster Data Fusion

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The micro-satellite cluster is a revolutionary technology with potential to transform the way we view and deploy space-based applications. Tightly-coupled, highly autonomous satellite clusters promise enhanced mission capabilities and marked reductions inoperational costs. However, ground-based data-processing and control present obstacles to the full realization of this technology.CleverSet prop ...

  2. Creative Robots to Defeat Deeply Buried Targets

    SBC: IMAGINATION ENGINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Recent developments in the area of artificial neural networks have led to a totally new brand of machine intelligence that is capable of autonomously improvising and implementing cunning concepts and strategies. This revolutionary neural networktechnology, called the

  3. Cross-Sortie Flight Route Optimization

    SBC: ON TIME SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Existing flight planning systems, to the extent that they optimize routes at all, optimize individual flights in isolation. Airspace, air traffic, or diplomatic constraints, among others, may preclude all flights taking their individually optimal routes,however. Planners must then manually reroute some flights. This effort will apply OTS' strengths in flight planning and optimization to develop ...

    SBIR Phase I 2003 Department of DefenseAir Force


    The Helikite Elevated Platform ? Test Relay (HEP-TR) consists of a communications relay payload suspended from a new type of small tethered blimp, called a Helikite, and a Carrier that stores the Helikite and the winch, sensors and helium tanks. TheHEP-TR blimp can be flown at several thousand feet altitude for low cost, long term test communications relay coverage of large areas. It is highly m ...

  5. Novel High Current Switch for Spacecraft Power Bus Control


    The proposed semiconductor-insulator-semiconductor (SIS) is herein defined as a structure consisting of two semiconductor layers separated by an insulator. PTS proposes such a SIS structure as a latching on/off switch consisting of widebandgap (WBG)semiconductors as cathodes and anodes. The cathode will be designed as an efficient electron gun or cathode. The anode will be designed as both an effi ...

  6. Photonic Crystal Chip-scale Optical Networks

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    As the clock speeds of integrated circuits continue to increase, the technological limits of all-electrical interconnects are becoming the overwhelming limit to system performance. In particular, over 80% of the latency in current ICs is due tointerconnect limitations. Moreover, current processors are requiring operational powers in excess of 100 Watts with I/O, on-chip interconnections, and clo ...

  7. Real Time Sensor Image Fusion

    SBC: MAX-VIZ, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The key to realization of an integrated Enhanced Vision System is the development of an economical and compact processor that can perform real-time adaptive, multi-imager fusion and ground-map correlation. We achieve statistically appropriate (Bayesian)operations in real time using a self-organizing,

  8. System Integration Toolsets for Rapid Evaluation of New Propulsion Systems

    SBC: ENGINEOUS SOFTWARE            Topic: N/A

    Many diverse tools are used for the evaluation of propulsion systems from different engineering disciplines. These include legacy codes, off the shelf analysis software such as ANSYS, MathLab a variety of CFD tools, and miscellaneous utilities such asExcel. Engineous Software proposes to investigate integration of diverse propulsion analysis tools into a design system or framework. Such a syste ...

  9. Thermal Barrier Coatings for Titanium and High Temperature Polymeric Composite Components

    SBC: MICROPHASE COATINGS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MicroPhase Coatings Inc (MPCI) will prove the technical feasibility of an innovative thermal barrier coating in response to SBIR topic AF03-115. The technology uses a novel polymer-titanium-silicate matrix that cures at room temperature. It incorporateshollow glass microspheres for additional thermal insulation. The matrix has already been demonstrated in the laboratory--it withstands high tempera ...

  10. Time-Exposure Acoustics for Imaging Underground Structures

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to further develop a new technique for imaging underground facilities based on the passive monitoring of acoustic emissions from both stationary and moving equipment within such facilities. It is well known that all mechanical devices, such asmotors, gears, etc, emit acoustic signals. It is possible to identify an acoustic source based on its noise spectrum. During Phase I, we have demo ...
