  1. Adaptive camera to display mappings using computer vision

    SBC: POLAR RAIN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The video surveillance industry is experiencing dramatic change with the move from analog to digital video. Command centers need to have coordinated viewing of multiple camera feeds at one time, and the ability to switch automatically between feeds and display relevant patterns. Conventional security control rooms include a bank of monitors connected through a switch to an array of security camera ...

  2. MEMS Adaptive Optics Enhancement of Quantum Entanglement for Secure Communication through the Atmosphere

    SBC: G A Tyler Assoc. Inc. dba the Optical Sciences Co.            Topic: AF06T030

    The proposed effort develops the understanding required to assess the utility of using a MEMS device to prepare the required optical fields that not only facilitate quantum entanglement, but also maintain a sufficient level of quantum entanglement for propagation through an aberrating medium such as the atmosphere. In addition a conceptual design of an experiment that is appropriate to further th ...

  6. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: FLUOROCHEM, INC.            Topic: AF06T007

    Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. One major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of hydrochloric acid (HCl) as a combustion product and can cause environmental probl ...
