  1. Separation of Speech from Background

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Human ability to attend to a single voice in the presence of background interference is remarkable. If this could be imitated in practical technology it would be of great benefit for automatic speech recognition and other applications. Researchers at OhioState University have demonstrated computational methods for separating speech from interfering sounds that imitate human auditory processing, an ...

  2. Detecting and Extracting Image Similarities, Differences and Target Patterns

    SBC: Automation, Integration of Information & Sy            Topic: N/A

    This proposal proposes the synergistic integration of several methods for mining images, detecting, correlating and evaluating the existence of artifacts due to either hidden information or changes or target patterns or noise. The first method is based onthe Pixels Flow Functions (PFF) able to detect changes in images by projecting the pixel values vertically, horizontally and diagonally. These pr ...

  3. Computational Methods for Feedback Controllers for Aerodynamics Flow Applications

    SBC: Cobalt Solutions, Llc            Topic: N/A

    A software toolbox for closed loop flow control investigations will be developed. Our proposed toolbox integrates a well tested Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver (Cobalt) with feedback and controls specific software tools implemented in Matlab. Alldata exchange and output will use efficient open standard data formats to interface the results to most any commercial visualization package. Th ...

  5. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force has recognized that the use of high temperature superconductors offers a great opportunity to reduce the weight and size of airborne power systems. There are several emerging airborne systems that will require large amounts of electricalpower while placing severe limitations on the size and weight of the equipment needed to generate and deliver this electrical power. This proposed ...

  8. High Flux Radical and Ultraviolet (UV) Generation by Atmospheric Pressure Nonequilibrium Plasmas.

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Plasmas have found wide application as sources of reactive radicals and ions for materials processing and treatment of flue gases. Operation at atmospheric pressure obviates the need for a vacuum system. Of the available types of plasma source used todissociate molecular gases at atmospheric pressure are arc discharges, which operate at neutral gas temperatures of up to 10,000 K; corona and dielec ...

  9. High-Bandwidth High-Resolution Sensor for Hypersonic Flows

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a miniature a.c. driven, weakly-ionized plasma anemometer for measurements at hypersonic Mach numbers. The design will be based on earlier work by Vrebalovich (1954) who developed an a.c. glow-discharge anemometer and demonstrated itssensitivity to mean and dynamic mass-flux variations for Mach numbers between 1.3 and 4. The advantages of the plasma anemometer are that it req ...

  10. Next Generation Hall effect Thruster Concepts

    SBC: Kaufman & Robinson, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this proposal is the research and development of low power (about 100 W) close-drift thruster with improved magnetic field. The patented design of the magnetic field makes possible to dramatically reduce the permissible size of aconventional stationary plasma thruster (SPT) that is limited by magnetic saturation of the inner magnetic path. The thruster with our improved magnetic f ...
