  1. Multi-Source Vertical Obstruction Generation

    SBC: AERIAL VISION, INC.            Topic: N04015

    In support of low flying air vehicle missions, the Navy seeks improved capabilities to detect automatically, geo-locate, and determine the height above ground of vertical obstructions over operational areas. Of importance is the ability to assess the horizontal and vertical accuracy of detection results and detect obstructions above specified heights. The solution must be able to process and fuse ...

  2. Aerosol Mass Spectrometer for Aircraft Sampling using Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N03227

    Aerosol particles play an important role in visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their impacts which depend on their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. An innovative aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS)has been recently designed to fill a critical need for size-resolved, quantitative chemical composition data on a ...

  6. Nanostructure-Enhanced Bulk Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: OSD04EP3

    The use of thermoelectric devices as alternative energy sources has been investigated with limited success. Manufacturing costs and limited power generation efficiency have prevented the economical, large-scale production and use of the thermoelectric devices as a viable alternative energy source. Agiltron has proposed an innovative nanostructure-enhanced thermoelectric material that will integrat ...

  7. Portable, Hand-Held Inspection System for Aircraft Components

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N03018

    New technology is needed for the nondestructive detection and characterization of defects in aerospace structures, particularly those with compex shapes that are used in high stress environments that accelerate degradation. Existing nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, based on ultrasonics, eddy-currents, and x-radiography, do not have the capabilities needed for real-time defect detection ...

  8. Microscopic Damage Detection and Remaining Life Assessment of Printed Circuit Boards

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N03158

    Field inspection of printed circuit boards (PCB), and assessment of their condition is critical for the readiness of military equipment. A new technology is needed that is portable and able to inspect PCBs, yet can perform sophisticated characterization of defects, and predict the remaining life of the electronics. The technology proposed by RMD could revolutionize the nondestructive evaluation ...

  9. Agile Engagement Planning

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: MDA02017

    Our Phase I effort explored combining a Stochastic Dynamic Programming (SDP) solver with a Constraint Satisfaction Reasoning (CSR) system to provide an "agile" missile defense engagement planner. We demonstrated the ability to accept a missile defense problem formulation at run-time and execute the formulation using the SDP solver to select weapon allocations. The CSR component insures the feasi ...

  10. Extended Look-Ahead Sensor Management for Missile Defense with a Bayes Net Battle Model

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: BMDO02010

    Our Phase I effort explored using Dynamic Bayesian Networks (DBNs) to predict results of sensor tasking in missile defense Sensor Resource Management (SRM). The DBN output was coupled with engagement planning analysis to take advantage of two proven approaches to improving missile defense SRM; integrating sensor allocation with weapon-target pairing and using extended look-ahead to make optimal u ...
