  1. Decentralized Asset Control for Layered Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF112139

    ABSTRACT:Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a decentralized asset management framework which will provide near-optimal loose cooperative control of diverse assets within the Layered Sensing Architecture. We propose to develop an asset manager which will perform allocation, assignment, vehicle routing, target prediction, and sensor tasking for a heterogeneous collection of assets while ...

  2. nForge: A Multi-Model Framework for System Designers


    ABSTRACT: Enhanced Modeling and Analysis of embedded real-time systems is vital to prevent late stage architecture changes, which can be costly from program risk and cost perspectives. System designers use various standards for modeling, including UML and SysML with MARTE augmentations, with supporting tools. These do not integrate well with specialized tools - e.g., for schedulability, performanc ...

  4. Topographic/HSI Active Transceiver (TOPHAT)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141178

    ABSTRACT:Hyperspectral imaging provides the ability to detect targets in complex environments and is essential in distinguishing manmade objects from natural surroundings. However, a significant limitation of hyperspectral systems is that they rely on natural illumination which varies based on time of day and weather conditions. A system that combines active, broadband illumination with hyperspect ...

  5. Validation of Multiphysics Coupled Analysis Capability for Realistic Hypersonic Vehicle Structures

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF083181

    ABSTRACT:The proposed CRP effort focuses on the validation of a multiphysics simulation framework through the pre- and post-test prediction of Mach 5-7 hypersonic vehicle test panels. Specifically, the proposed effort seeks to advance the software framework to TRL-7/8 by validating against measurements made from planned hypersonic wind tunnel tests. The first stage of the effort focuses on simula ...

  8. Mobile Target Secondary Debris (MTSD)

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: AF121095

    ABSTRACT:The objective of the project is to develop models for secondary debris generated by mobile targets. This includes the vehicle component breakup due to expanding high explosives and primary fragments as well as the associated airblast that propagates into the environment propelling secondary fragments from the vehicle. The overall scope of the project involves developing the computational ...

  9. MWIR Seeker-Sensor for Strap Down Weapon/SUAS applications

    SBC: SURFACE OPTICS CORP.            Topic: AF141139

    ABSTRACT:A program to develop a compact, HOT-FPA-based MWIR imager for small UAS sensor and strap-down seeker applications is proposed. The proposed system builds upon Surface Optics real-time broad-band and spectral imaging activities to generate a compact sensor appropriate for both ground and airborne operations that includes real-time detection and tracking of targets. Integrated into the proc ...

  10. Weapon Burial Secondary Debris (WBSD)

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: AF121097

    ABSTRACT:Most of the air delivered air force weapons are designed to detonate inside structures.However, due to targeting inaccuracies and other reasons they may land outside a structure and could detonate partially or fully buried in soil.These events could result in collateral damage to people, vehicles in the vicinity.Air force would like to have a fast running capability to assess the risk due ...
