  1. Intelligent Agent Toolset for 4D/RCS Architectures

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is an increasing demand for systems with more autonomous operations interacting with other autonomous and human-based systems. What is needed is an architecture bundled with developer tools for the creation of intelligent real-time control systems that marry the talents of modern control theory, software technology, sensory processing, and semantic knowledge representations. It would be a st ...

  2. Multi-user Collaborative Tools for Immersive Scientific Visualization

    SBC: OPEN TECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Open Tech will create an interactive multi-user collaboration product for immersive and desktop scientific visualization. This product will leverage our Virtual Reality Windowing Library to enable an easy to use collaboration interface that includes user lists, radars, maps, avatars, white boards, and virtual presentations. The product will also contain a software framework that enables developers ...

  3. Dynamic Light Scattering Instrumentation Using Field Programmable Gate Array-based Digital Signal Processing

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An existing low-cost FPGA-based processing platform will be demonstrated with fiber-coupling to single-photon detectors, to perform photon-arrival time stamping with

  4. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  5. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  6. Culture and Modeling of Routine and Non-Routine Behavior

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    Crowd management is an important task for civilian, police, and military groups that can be very difficult on its own, and becomes even more difficult in hostile environments. The difficulty comes from the many levels of granularity that events can happen at. Making such a system automated adds further challenges, due to difficulties with modeling and sensors. Accurate large-scale crowd models are ...

  7. Maritime Surveillance Using Underwater Communication Receivers

    SBC: CHAOTIC.COM            Topic: SOCOM06013

    Many SOCOM-specific, passive, maritime, acoustic-surveillance operations cannot be accomplished using conventional sonar-system technologies. Maritime, passive-acoustic surveillance using some combination of submarines and the Advanced Deployable System is a traditional surveillance mission. But, the deployment and use of these capital-intensive assets for surveillance of many shallow-water passag ...

  8. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    This program addresses the Special Operations need for a cost effective wind Lidar system enabling efficient delivery of psychological warfare material. Our approach involves the design, development and field demonstration of an all fiber transceiver allowing for the mapping of wind fields. The advantages of our approach include: • All Fiber based design resulting in a power efficient system, ...

  9. Heterodyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: DTRA03005

    Large x-ray generators using Ar gas filled loads are an important element in the DTRA simulator program to provide users with a relevant fluence of x-rays for evaluating the radiation hardness of components used in military systems. With ostensibly identical initial conditions and generator parameters, 33% variations in the average yield have been observed. The one unmeasured parameter is the actu ...

  10. A Time-Resolved Ion Velocity Diagnostic for Simulator-Class Gas-Puff Z-Pinches

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: DTRA06013

    A diagnostic is proposed that uses the Doppler effect in visible-light emission lines to deduce the ion velocity during the implosion phase of a gas-puff z-pinch. The diagnostic combines an innovative light collection and detection scheme with gas doping to determine the ion velocities. The proposed instrument will be able to determine implosion velocities over a 100 ns range on a single shot usi ...
