  1. Miniature Directional Microphone for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phraselator, a handheld automatic translation device, currently uses a cardioic microphone as an input for automatic speech recognition (ASR). This microphone is highly vulnerable to performance degradation in typical noisy military environments and,thus, there is a need for an improved transducer for this application. We propose to develop a new directional microphone that is immune to extr ...

  2. Micromachined Deformable Mirrors for Beam Control and Imaging Applications

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: N/A

    Micromachined deformable mirrors are being commercialized by the contractor and applied to DOD related projects due to their light weight, fast response, small size, and inexpensive fabrication costs. During Phase II, the contractor and university teamwill demonstrate a novel projection system incorporating a micromachined deformable mirror, and develop a complete adaptive optics system based upo ...

  3. Spatially Modulated Reflective Membranes for High-Dynamic-Range Wavefront Control

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: N/A

    Diffractive wavefront control has been demonstrated as a viable technique for high-dynamic-range laser wavefront control. Unfortunately, most conventional programmable diffractive elements, like liquid crystals and segmented mirror arrays, are damagedwhen illuminated with high-power laser light. The proposed work would investigate approaches for scaling membrane deformable mirrors to provide hig ...

  4. An Integrated Publish and Subscribe Architecture Test Harness (InPATH)


    A Publish and Subscribe (P&S) architecture forms the foundation of the Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI) system, which is composed of protocols, processes, and common core functions permitting participating applications and organizations to share andexchange mission-critical information in a timely manner. The Air Force is examining various P&S standards that have the potential of forming the bas ...

  6. High Speed Timed Idiosyncratic Signatures


    High Speed Timed Idiosyncratic Signatures Such an idiosyncratic signature will allow a publisher of software to key the program to certain computers and make moving of such software very difficult. This technology has high applicability for publishers ofanti-piracy software as well as to ensure that sensitive software or information will not be moved to another location. This allows an overall in ...

  7. Automatic Generation of Embedded Interpreters for Software Protection


    We begin with the observation that table interpretation, or embedded interpreters, is an effective technique for software reverse engineering protection. The scientific literature does not indicate any attempt to address the technical problems required toimplement table interpretation as a general automatic software protection technique. We propose an architecture that is capable of automaticall ...

  8. Motion Based Video ATR

    SBC: DIGITAL TRAFFIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of our proposed research is autonomous real-time detection, classification, and location of targets from a video image. DTS Inc ( proposes to combine its robust software in real-time video tracking and classification of vehicles forthe transportation industry with a new classifier (From our subcontractor, Quasar International, to develop a true ATR video ...

  9. Shear Stress Sensor Using Shape Memory Films

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for a low profile, simple, accurate, localized, responsive sensor to measure shear stress in fluid flow. The unusual properties of the shape memory alloy Ni2MnGa suggest it could make a very sensitive sensor. In recent years,single-crystal films of this alloy have been grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy. Once released from their substrate, the films have exhibited shape memory beh ...

  10. A Lightweight Ultra-Wideband Lens TEM Horn with Low Sidelobes and Low Radar Cross Section

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ultra-Wideband radar systems could contribute significantly to the detection and identification of unknown objects. UWB radars have been shown to work well in environments where conventional radars fail, such as looking through foliage or soil. However,UWB radars suffer from the lack of an antenna with low sidelobes, while still maintaining the ability to radiate a clean impulse. Currently availab ...
