  1. Development of an Innovative Practical UAV with no Moving Aerodynamic Control Surfaces

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: AF05246

    Prior to this project, zero net mass flux Synthetic Jet Actuators (SJAs) were used primarily as a mechanism to keep flow attached that would otherwise be separated. Thus, SJAs located near a wing’s leading edge have been shown in experimental projects such as the NASA/GTRI Stingray UAV to be effective for producing forces and moments suitable for flight control only at high angles of attack. I ...

  2. Multifunctional Design of Load Bearing Antenna Structures for Small UAVs

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: AF05T019

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated, and our research institution partner Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) will continue development of our unique two-stage Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) system for the design of highly integrated miniature broadband antennae for small UAVs. The concept of structurally-integrated multifunction antennae embedded into airframes is central to the DoD’s "smart sk ...

  3. Models to Address Diplomatic, Information, Military, Economic (DIME) Factors for the Propagation/Evolution of Ideas Through Defined Populations

    SBC: Veloxiti            Topic: A06094

    We propose to evaluate and recommend a set of candidate models of the flow and evolution of population beliefs and intentions as the starting point for developing a deployable DIME Effects Model (DEM) for tactical commanders. DIME (Diplomatic, Information, Military and Economic) seeks to avoid counter-productive and conflicting activities during tactical operations by considering these factors in ...

  4. Advanced Antenna Pattern Prediction Software

    SBC: CEM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T018

    Accurate numerical predictions of antenna performance on aircraft are important in many problems of avionics design and integration. In particular, such predictions are needed to determine optimal antenna placement on aircraft in order to achieve required coverage. The focus of this project is an investigation and development of new high-frequency computational methods and codes for accurate and e ...

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: AF06T034

    Cermet, Inc in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology proposes to develop ZnO based light emitter with light emission wavelengths ranging from UV to IT. On successful completion of the proposed effort, the market place will have a unified device structure based ZnO that emits light from UV to IR. The proposed work will be accomplished by the researchers from Cermet and Georgia Institut ...

  6. Knowledge-based Technologies to Support Predictive Mission Awareness

    SBC: dNovus RDI            Topic: AF06053

    At a recent DIA briefing to industry, intelligence community representatives reiterated the urgent need for improving the TPED process to meet the operational need to obtain persistent intelligence about on the battlefield. TPED is the process of sensor tasking, sensor processing, sensor exploitation and report dissemination. The requirement to improve the ISR TPED process has been articulated ...

  7. Intelligent Assistant For Just Enough Data Sharing Across Multiple Security Domains

    SBC: ENKIA CORP.            Topic: OSD05NC2

    While recent efforts in cross-domain information sharing have developed platforms and infrastructure for information sharing, they do not address the question of the content of the information that is being shared. This project will develop the latter capability: identifying information that is (i) relevant and (ii) sharable. This is a key problem in "just enough" data sharing, especially in crisi ...

  8. A Hierarchical Fault Tolerant Control System for UGVs Experiencing Mobility Failures

    SBC: GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY CONNECTION, INC.            Topic: A06203

    Global Technology Connection, Inc. in collaboration with University of Michigan-Dearborn (Vetronics Institute) and our industrial partner Lockheed Martin MFC proposes to develop a hierarchical fault tolerant three tier architecture for UGVs. Mobility parameters are continually updated at different levels including mobility goals, UGV trajectories, and UGV system model. At the top level of the a ...

  9. Collision Avoidance for Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06149

    The innovative use of variational methods to dynamically segment scenes, which leads to a fast, natural approach to estimating the location of unknown 3-D obstacles is proposed. The previously developed algorithm has been shown in simulation to be suitable for real-time processing in flight using current generation processors, and to be robust in the presence of transient sensor data, distortion, ...

  10. Neurotoxicity Associated with Mefloquine, an Anti-Malarial Drug

    SBC: HORIZON MOLECULAR MEDICINE, LLC            Topic: A06T034

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate that mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) impairment is critical to development of mefloquine neurotoxicity and to develop a test that can screen for susceptibility to mefloquine neurotoxicity. The interaction between mefloquine and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) induces a cascade of events leading to OXPHOS dysfunction. Mefloquine disr ...
