  2. Ultra-High Temporal Resolution Laser Radar (LADAR) Receiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A07080

    Voxtel will develop a prototype ultra-high temporal resolution flash LADAR receiver suitable for unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) or unmanned air vehicle (UAV) applications, based upon its low-excess-noise, multi-stage avalanche photodiode (APD) technology. During the Phase I program, 5-stage InGaAs APDs where shown to have a multiplication noise characterized by k=0.02 at a gain of M=20 (20× lower ...

  3. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptor technology for its BMDS. High-quality imagery is crucial to this effort for several purposes, including navigation, false-alarm/decoy identification, and estimation of position and speed of potential targets. Although high-resolution imaging systems are readily available, they require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture o ...

  4. Tools for Rapid Automated Development of Expert Models (TRADEM)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: A12026

    Intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) are complex adaptive learning systems that simulate one-on-one tutoring. Research shows they improve learning and reduce time to mastery. Unfortunately, they are also expensive and time-consuming to produce. Existing IT authoring tools eliminate low level programming but require that domain models, expert models and content be created manually. In Phase I of t ...

  5. ADIDRUS: Using Deception to Protect and Defend UAVs

    SBC: GALOIS, INC.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Unmanned vehicles are becoming an increasingly valuable tool within the Department of Defense, and related technologies are beginning to appear in commercial systems. As their utilization grows, these unmanned systems will become a significant target for cyber attack. Indeed, existing Defense Department unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have already been subjected to attack by various adversaries. ...

  6. Abrasion and Impact Resistant Hydrophobic Thermoplastic Coatings for Aircraft Landing Skis/Skids

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: AF103256

    ABSTRACT: Resodyn Corporations proposed Functionalized Polyethylene (FPE) copolymer thermoplastic coating will overcome the shortcomings of the current ski coating. The FPE will provide the long-lasting, low friction, impact-resistant, abrasion resistant and hydrophobic properties required and will also provide hydraulic fluid resistance and reduced drag during wet snow conditions. Enhancements ...

  7. Improved Hyperspectral Readout Integrated Circuit

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112135

    ABSTRACT: To increase the performance of current and next-generation imaging spectrometers for military applications, in this Phase II SBIR effort, a flexible readout integrated circuit (ROIC), optimized for hyperspectral imaging (HSI) will be developed with enhanced capabilities. The ROIC features a 1024 (spatial) x 512 (spectral) format, with 20 micron pitch pixel elements, and has been develop ...

  8. Satellite Optical Backplane

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF103097

    ABSTRACT: there is a clear need for a radically new interconnect architecture that minimizes the routing delay through the backplane to enable increased performance, reduced costs, and faster time to market. To this end, we propose the development of a space compatible optically interconnected backplane with reconfigurable routing fabric. By removing the electrical interconnections between logi ...

  9. Incorporating Physiological Measurements in Enlisted Classification and Officer Career Path Aptitude Assessments

    SBC: QUANTUM LEAP INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR9

    In Phase I we have developed an integrated software and hardware solution to identify personnel who have a natural aptitude for a cognitive skill. The goal of Phase II is to develop a screening tool by expanding previous multi-dimensional approach developed in Phase I and predict vigilance skill performance and aptitude for enlisted classification and officer career path aptitude assessments. The ...

  10. Automated Wide-Area Network Configuration from High-Level Specifications

    SBC: GALOIS, INC.            Topic: ST061002

    Wide-area networks are essential to productivity in commercial enterprises and military organizations. Reliability is difficult to achieve because wide-area networks, such as the Internet, are built from many autonomously configured component networks. Today there exists a large gap between the intended design of a network and the implementation of that design. This is because complex network poli ...
