  1. Extended-SWIR Targeting Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112096

    ABSTRACT:Current military systems laser rangefinding and designation systems require multiple detectors, which make such systems large, heavy, and power hungry, which limits application to larger, high-value platforms. The proposed Phase II program addresses the need for a single, compact high-resolution SWIR imager with see-spot/time-spot capabilities. In the Phase II program, Voxtel will develop ...

  2. Laser-based Acoustic Sensing for Noise Measurement in Wind Tunnel

    SBC: TestCo            Topic: A15001

    Aeroacoustic testing of rotors and propellers in wind tunnels fulfills an important role in the design and evaluation of future concepts as well as existing technologies. Laser-based sensors for standoff measurement of aeroacoustic perturbations are required in order to overcome the limitations of traditional microphones that are mounted on struts. AeroMancer Technologies proposes to develop a Las ...

  3. High-Resolution Asynchronous Day/Night Timespot NIR-SWIR Imager Development

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15039

    A compact, low-power near/shortwave infrared sensor capable of temporally and spatially resolving battlefield lasers asynchronously under day and night conditions will be developed. The approach is based on an existing active-passive focal plane array (FPA), which readily lends itself to this application. In Phase I, after working with U.S. Army stakeholders to refine the requirements and the cont ...

  4. Prattle: Deception and Anti-Reconnaissance via CyberChaff

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF151029

    ABSTRACT:Computer network defense tools are plagued with an excessive amount of information, frequently in the form of false positives. Rather than attempt to train automated tools to detect attack events more reliably, we propose to build upon existing 'honey-net' technologies to interfere with the reconnaissance phases of an adversary's attack. We will build upon our existing CyberChaff (TM) tec ...

  5. Next-Generation Semi-Active Laser (SAL) and Miniature Designator

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF151112

    ABSTRACT:A novel next-generation (Next Gen) semi-active laser (SAL) seeker will be developed, which includes a novel gun-hardened miniature eye-safe laser designator, ideal for weapon and UAV mounting. The laser will optionally be configured with a laser positioning and timing (PAT) imager, which can be used to aid target handover and to provide active feedback for beam stabilization. The SAL seek ...

  6. Heterogeneous and Gradient Additive Manufacturing Technologies

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF151135

    ABSTRACT:A machine to support the research and development of additive manufacturing (AM) multi-material 3D printing technologies will be developed, which will enable the fabrication of 3D objects with heterogeneous compositions, i.e., objects that are composed of two or more materials that differ in their physical and/or chemical properties and are fused together to build up the object. Using exi ...

  7. Low Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) Blackbody Project

    SBC: Jung Research and Development Corp.            Topic: AF151177

    ABSTRACT:The objective of the proposed research is to investigate the feasibility of constructing a 27 cm diameter infrared (IR) source with a calibrated output radiance that is as accurate as the current state of the art, yet fits in a volume that is 10 times smaller than a blackbody of comparable aperture size and accuracy, and outputs only half the power. The required effective emissivity of 0. ...

  8. Application of a Wireless Finger-mounted Ultrasound Transducer and Imaging Platform

    SBC: SONIVATE MEDICAL, INC.            Topic: DHP14006

    We propose to add ultra-wide-band (UWB) wireless connectivity to a wearable, battery powered, finger-worn ultrasound probe and system (under development through a separate contract) capable of performing the FAST exam for use in the battlefield. UWB is particular suited to medical defense needs on the battlefield as the wireless transmission is undetectable, uses low power and has high bandwidth f ...

  9. Correct-by-Construction Synthesis for Multi-Vehicle Autonomy Missions

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: The kinds of capability advancements we anticipate include scalable support for multi-vehicle scenarios with concurrent executions, co-existence of adversarial and cooperative assets, timing and synchronization constraints, heterogeneous sets of specifications (e.g., prioritization over soft vs. hard constraints), and fault-tolerance. The tool development will focus on an open-source so ...

  10. High Performance Switched Reluctance Generator Controller

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: A15087

    In this proposal, closed-loop control techniques are developed to eliminate torque harmonics produced by an SRM. To provide vibratory feedback, a piezoelectric-based sensor is incorporated into an SRM drive system to sense the torque harmonics in real time. The advantages of using a piezoelectric-based sensor include its flexibility in terms of placement, its extremely low cost, its durability and ...
