  1. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  2. Response Management for Counterspace and SSA Operations

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: AF06283

    The foundation of any counterspace capability is space/counterspace situation awareness. Existing AFRL/VS funded efforts have established a foundation for robust, multi-level situation awareness through multi-source, multi-level, data fusion. However, situation awareness is only useful to the extent that it informs response to threats, whether natural or man-made. AFRL/VS Space Awareness & Respons ...

  3. Anti-Tamper Operational Environment Sensors

    SBC: DBI            Topic: OSD05A05

    The objective of this investigation is to demonstrate an innovative sensor designed to detect when a system has been removed from its operational environment.

  4. Non-Invasive Model Attitude and Deformation Measurement

    SBC: DMS Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF06298

    The precision with which model attitude and deflection are measured in a wind tunnel is important for determining such quantities as drag coefficient, lift coefficient, moment coefficient and stability derivatives. The assumption that the wind tunnel model is a rigid body, which possesses no extra deflection under load, no flexing under dynamic loading is far from reality. Some of the techniques s ...

  5. Hardware Accelerated Simulator for Scattering from Electrically Large Objects and Scenes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05220

    Over the past few decades, computational electromagnetics (CEM) researchers have been making steady progress towards the development of efficient algorithms, such as the Method of Moments (MoM), for simulating scattering from electrically large targets. Unfortunately, such techniques have proved too computationally demanding because they require the solution of an often very large and dense matri ...

  6. Development of Advanced Polymer Based Photonic Crystal Devices and Fabrication Processes

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF05135

    Photonic crystals have led the way for miniaturizing application specific optical integrated circuit (ASOIC) to a scale comparable to the wavelength of light which in turn made them a good candidate for next generation high-density optical systems and interconnects. Polymer based Photonic Crystal structures have potential applications in optical integrated circuits, optoelectronics, optical switch ...

  7. Reprogrammable High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF06062

    Field Programmable Gate Arrays are widely recognized as an attractive technology for satisfying the needs of U.S. Government Crypto Modernization programs. However, FPGA technology creates some interesting challenges in terms of reliability and assurance of crypto implementations. In the late 1990s, the National Security Agency recognized the need to significantly improve the state-of-the-art for ...

  8. Fuze Jerk Reduction and Optimum Deceleration from a Compliant Material System

    SBC: LRK Associates            Topic: AF05166

    Experimental tests in Phase I have shown the fuze shock absorber system capable of reducing shock peaks by a factor of three, and the associated jerk by an order of magnitude. The Phase II work will be devoted to exploring the performance space of this jerk-reduction system as a function of its material properties and physical configuration, as well as the fuze mass. LRK Associates will design a ...

  9. Fast Algorithms for Imaging Simulation through Turbulence

    SBC: LRK Associates            Topic: AF05009

    The Phase I work has shown the technical feasibility of creating new, equivalent-accuracy algorithms for optical simulation with smaller operations counts than existing Fourier methods. These will be helpful in speeding up extended scene imaging simulations used in laser weapons' systems performance evaluations. However, the computational efficiency advantage of these new algorithms over Fourier ...

  10. 3D Measurement for Aircraft Maintenance and Part Remanufacture

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: AF05267

    Those responsible for maintaining the operational status of the aircraft of the United States Air Force face many difficult challenges in completing their mission. With an ever aging, and yet, ever more valuable inventory of older aircraft, the maintenance depots assigned their upkeep and readiness continually work to maximize flight time and minimize costs. As a result, many are looking to tech ...
