  1. Passive Wireless Corrosion-Monitoring Tags

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: A12aT001

    Aircraft, missiles, and vehicle structures are susceptible to corrosion. Engines, transmissions, blades, rocket motors, canisters, and other system components include materials that degrade over time and are not often checked. Recently, the application of condition-based maintenance (CBM) techniques has reduced lifecycle maintenance costs through the identification of maintenance needs after analy ...

  2. Situation Awareness Optimal Linkage and Reporting Intelligence System (SOLARIS)

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF112026

    ABSTRACT: The combined effects of data overload, source variability, and the effects of a wide variety of cognitive biases add enormous complexity to the already-complex task of intelligence analysis. Given the criticality of the analysis task, it is imperative that effective tools be developed for mitigating the effects of ever-increasing data loads coming from existing and emerging collection ...

  3. Microwave Mapping-Transparency Sensor System

    SBC: COMPASS TECHNOLOGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF121C123

    ABSTRACT: Compass Technology Group (CTG) proposes to develop a new concept in microwave nondestructive evaluation (NDE) in support of the Air Force"s requirement for transparent conductive canopy coating testing. The offered design specifically addresses the need for high-fidelity measurements of defects in aircraft windows in both manufacturing and in-service (depot and field) environments. This ...

  4. Development of an Extended Endurance Air-Launched, Tube-Integrated, Unmanned System (ALTIUS)

    SBC: Area I, Inc.            Topic: AF112170

    ABSTRACT: The Area-I team propose to leverage their expertise to develop an extended-endurance Air-Launched, Tube-Integrated Unmanned System (ALTIUS). ALTIUS, meaning"higher"in Latin, will provide a paradigm shift in the performance of small, tube-launched remotely piloted aircraft (RPA). Core features and capabilities of the ALTIUS UAS will include: 1) A state-of-the-art, high-energy-density ...

  5. Ultra High Performance Radar Absorbing Material

    SBC: COMPASS TECHNOLOGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF112195

    ABSTRACT: Traditional anechoic chamber wall treatments have consisted of geometrically tapered carbon loaded foam, which provides good near-normal incidence absorption of specular energy. While this material has served the testing community well over the last few decades, it is fundamentally limited because of the high level of diffuse scatter (tip diffraction), that increases the overall noise l ...

  6. Cognitive Measures and Models for Persistent Surveillance

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF121023

    ABSTRACT: The development of persistent wide area imagery surveillance systems for the Department of Defense is a huge step forwards for the Air Force intelligence capabilities. By providing continuous imagery updates across a broad field of view, these systems are expected to support both faster and more accurate warfighter decision-making. However, the human characteristics of the imagery ana ...

  7. High Range Resolution Radar for Flightline Boundary Surveillance


    ABSTRACT: Propagation Research Associates, Inc. (PRA) teamed with FLIR (previously ICx) proposes to leverage the work performed under a previous Phase II contract that involved clutter mitigation for ground based ground moving target radars. PRA plans to integrate automatic target recognition (ATR) algorithms developed on the previous contract into the R-4400 commercial-off-the-shelf high range ...

  8. Enhancing Decision Making through Adaptive Trustworthiness Cues

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF121031

    ABSTRACT: Gaining tactical advantage, ensuring safety, and completing missions are the main objectives of military operations. Accomplishing these objectives depends on the ability of military personnel to make quick, effective decisions. Systems must be developed that will provide users with assistance in quickly attributing an appropriate level of trust to individual data points as well as to ...

  9. Real Time Structural Health Monitoring of High Velocity Impact Events

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: A12019

    This SBIR effort seeks to develop a structural health monitoring system that can monitor structural components of vehicles that are subjected to possible blast loading conditions and high-velocity impacts. The system provides the following characteristics; capable of capturing real-time stress measurements under blast loading conditions, capable of surviving extreme pressure wave environments, ada ...

  10. Intelligent PMESII Information Management Workbench

    SBC: Veloxiti            Topic: A12044

    Conflicts within the US military between roles and responsibilities, the use of NGOs on the battlefield, and the role of host nation and allied forces in a time of transition between combat and non-combat only increase the complexity of the PMESII management issues. After a decade of war and an investment of nearly one trillion dollars by the US Government, the Defense Department, State Departme ...
