  1. Concurrent Agent-enabled Feature Extraction (CAFÉ)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T017

    High fidelity, large scale simulations of complex systems pose a very difficult situation to the scientist trying to understand the physical domain and characteristics of their system. Often, it is impossible to manually search through the data that can come out of these simulations, which may range from Gigabytes to Terabytes. Furthermore, it may be impossible to visualize the multi-dimensional i ...

  2. CoolAID

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T002

    Providing commanders with accurate, on-the-spot, clear, concise, usable information wins battles and saves lives. With incoming information from many heterogeneous sources, the focus has been primarily on determining what information to present, and visual ways of communicating the information. There has been less research on what makes information actionable, or on what additional communication c ...

  3. Space-ACE

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083039

    There is a need for a next-generation integrative decision support system for Space Control operations. This next-generation system should provide high-level capabilities for managing case files containing evidence, expert opinions, and data relationships. The system should enhance operator awareness by highlighting salient aspects of the case file, critical relationships, and confidence assessmen ...

  4. Video20/20

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083016

    The monitoring of multiple UAV video sources is challenging, in part, due to the poor quality of the video received.  Significant video degrading is caused by clouds, haze, and dust in the atmosphere; jitter and blurring from the UAV platform motion; and low video resolution due to sensor characteristics and high altitude flying. Higher quality video would alleviate much of the challenge for the ...

  5. Directed Energy Detection and Characterization Instrumentation

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF083253

    The AEgis Technologies Group Inc. proposes to investigate high energy laser and high power microwave instrumentation for ground and airborne targets. The experienced team will identify candidate instrumentation systems; evaluate them against customer-defined requirements and features; and recommend potential systems for further study, development, and implementation in Phase II. We will coordinate ...

  6. New Laser Eye Protection (LEP) Technology for Visors

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF083013

    Laser eye protection has become increasingly important due to the availability of laser sources (continuous and pulsed) over a broad range of wavelengths. This is particularly the case where table top femtosecond laser pulses (~50femtoseconds) with peak powers reaching the Terawatt  scale are commercially available in the visible and near infrared.  The military uses many laser systems (e.g., tr ...

  7. Aging and Surveillance Technology for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF083115

    ASI proposes an innovative and numerically-efficient approach to the modeling of crack propagation in solid propellant rocket motors.  Our technology uses a coupled fluid-structure interaction model that is enhanced with an embedded grid capability.  Such an approach eliminates virtually all of the bottlenecks that occur in traditional approaches, through elimination of the re-gridding that must ...

  8. Geospatial Intelligence Analyst Knowledge Preservation Tools

    SBC: BEVILACQUA RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF083020

    This proposal describes a specific problem within the Intelligence community. Because of a lack of GEOINT tools for capturing storing and delivering expert knowledge from experienced analysts, new analysts have difficulty in quickly gaining the level of skill that those expert analysts possess.  Recent work in cognitive science has shown that engineers presented with knowledge from domain experts ...

  9. Miniaturized Thermocouple Scanner

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF083258

    The AEDC Engine Test Facility (ETF) has more than 20 test cells that can be used for testing prototype propulsion systems and components.  The testing of propulsion systems requires significant data acquisition capabilities, with one test utilizing more than 4200 channels of instrumentation, including 700 thermocouples.  In response to the sheer set-up challenge, AEDC has developed the concept o ...

  10. High Heating Rate Electrical Discharge Calorimeter Calibration System

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF083257

    In answer to the need for an increased heat-flux calibration capability, Streamline Automation  proposes a novel calorimeter data reduction methodology and its implementation and demonstration in a high heat-flux calibration system, powered by an electrical discharge. The new calibration system will; enable calibration at the required flux levels, recreate conditions specific to high-enthalpy hyp ...
