  1. A Small Image-aided Navigation And Path-planning System (SINAPS) for UAVs

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: A07001

    The proposing team will continue the development, testing, and productization of a Small, Image-aided Navigation and Autonomous Path-planning System (SINAPS) for UAVs. The SINAPS utilizes a capable suite of sensors together with state-of-the-art computing to enable real-time autonomous sensing and maneuvering at high speeds even in obstacle-rich environments. Due to the limitations and power req ...

  2. Game World

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corp            Topic: SB072012

    Trainers and educators watch the videogame player enviously. Patiently and passionately, the player develops skills to beat the game. He devotes intense hours to exploration, learning and repetitive practice. This same player often neglects schoolwork, or lags in job training. How can the videogame be harnessed, so that the learning that wins the game matches the learning that wins in school and ...

  3. Automated Pixel Geo-Registration for Precise Imaging

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: AF081070

    We study the problem of sensor calibration as it might be applied to a tactical UAV system where operability and robustness are paramount. A large number of airframes and diversity of sensor types argues for an approach that is low cost (exploiting calibration targets in the field) and applicable for various sensors. The study considers various approaches to sensor calibration and measurements e ...

  4. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF081051

    We will develop "flexible sensing" techniques that will enable a single sensor to perform the functions of both a "seeker" and a "target detection device". One set of approaches will comprise resolution enhancement and other techniques to extract target identification and tracking information, as would be provided by a "seeker", from a low resolution / high update rate sensor. Hyperacuity-based a ...

  7. High Temperature High Frequency MEMS Sensors

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: AF07T014

    ENGeniousMicro proposes to develop a micromachined sensor that will operate at high temperatures with high frequency response to measure surface pressure, shear stress, and heat flux distributions. Through the use of micromachining technologies, we will develop a sensor that has a small form factor and can be flush mounted on the object to be monitored. Our sensor will be designed to have a freq ...

  8. Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) Structures for Vanes and Exhaust Nozzle Components

    SBC: EVISIVE LLC            Topic: AF071105

    The objective of this project is to optimize the design of a microwave interference scanning system and application procedure for use in the Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) manufacturing process. Quick, efficient in-process measurement of part porosity will be an integral part of pyrolysis cycle optimization. The feasibility of this application of the novel Evisive Scan microwave interference sca ...
