  1. A System to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AFFECT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A09AT006

    Modern military and security scenarios increasingly demand rapid evaluation of human affective states, accurately detecting stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fatigue (SAUF) to assess warfighter effectiveness or to advance security screening and interrogation objectives. In our Phase I effort, we designed and demonstrated a system to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AF ...

  2. Automated Microscopic Malaria Diagnosis

    SBC: Diagnostic Vision Corporation            Topic: A08T036

    This SSTR research project will develop a computerized microscope based imaging system that will allow location and quantization of malarial parasites. The system will automatically scan a blood smear, locating the red cells and parasites. A digital image display will allow interaction with an operator to confirm or reject objects. In Phase II the initial effort to identify trophozoites will be ...

  5. Variable-Isp Ionic Liquid Electrospray Thruster

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF08BT09

    ABSTRACT: Busek proposes, with the MIT Space Propulsion Lab, to leverage successful Phase I proof-of-concept results to develop and deliver a 1mN, micro-fabricated electrospray thruster that features variable Isp and bi-polar operation. The thruster achieves variable Isp at no power penalty by innovative use of a deceleration grid, and operating in purely ionic mode so as to overcome many of the ...

  7. Multi-Physics, Multi-Functional Nano-Engineered Composites for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: AF08BT23

    ABSTRACT: Composite materials are increasingly adopted into Aerospace application due to their superior specific strength/stiffness, resistance to fatigue and ability to reduce part-count. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that by introducing carbon nanotubes (CNTs), multi-functional capabilities can be achieved by virtue of their high conductivity and piezoresistive nature. During the prop ...

  8. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: Providing electrical power for long duration hypersonic flight is a technology that is required to bring about this revolutionary mode of transport. Whether for weapons delivery or for space access, the long duration missions anticipated require a novel approach to the generation of electrical power during flight. Scramjets contain no rotating shafts from which typical generators or mec ...
