  1. Distributed Robotic Intelligent Behaviors

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF03148

    Recent military efforts have illustrated the difficulty for conventional weapons to find and defeat "deep-targets" that are concealed, guarded, mobile, or even buried. Examples include underground hardened bunkers, cave/tunnel systems, and mobile SCUD launchers. Miniature robotics could be used to find, collect data, track, and even defeat such targets, but the robots need to be well coordinate ...

  2. Multi-Mode Mobility for Micro-Platforms

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF04177

    Recent military efforts have illustrated the difficulty for conventional weapons to find and defeat "hard-targets" that are concealed, guarded, mobile, or even buried. Examples include underground hardened bunkers, cave/tunnel systems, and mobile SCUD launchers. Robotic micro-platforms could be used to find, collect data, track, and even defeat such targets, but the robots need to be nimble, agi ...

  3. Demonstration of Multiple Fiber Pre-forms for Local Property Tailoring

    SBC: Bally Ribbon Mills            Topic: AF04249

    The most difficult part of the end-fire CLAS assembly is the installation of short circuits to connect the various circuitry layers. If shorts with certain features can be pre-fabricated prior to final assembly of the skin, the skin fabrication will be made much easier, and hence less costly. One way to pre-fabricate the shorts is to weave two different fibers-astroquartz and graphite-into a 3-D ...

  4. Conductive Repair Coatings

    SBC: BBM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF03113

    We propose three basic thrusts for Phase II Conductive Repair Coating (CRC). First, utilize our understanding of filled polymer alloy coating systems gained in Phase I to optimize selected performance properties according to stringent criteria for a field-ready conductive repair coating system. Second, design and demonstrate an efficient methodology for scale-up of the final CRC system to multi-ga ...

  5. Conversational Agents in a Pattern Oriented Training Environment (CAPOTE)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03045

    Training programs such as Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training (SUPT) present students with an array of complex skills to integrate in a dynamic, time-sensitive performance context. Instructors are frequently forced to spend some of a student's limited flight hours reviewing skills that could be trained offline, such as situational awareness (SA), basic pattern geometry, and radio communicatio ...

  6. Satellite Technician Advanced Training System (STATS)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03058

    The reliance of military operations on near real-time and, in some cases, real-time information delivery from satellites is growing, especially as the military moves toward its goal of sensor-to-shooter information delivery. The cost of a single mistake or slow response can be exorbitant, resulting in a significant reduction in a satellite's lifespan or in the loss of a satellite. In light of th ...

  7. Intelligent WCSS for Counterspace, (IWC)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF04068

    An increasing dependency on and criticality of space capabilities represents a significant and growing vulnerability. Defensive Counterspace Operations (DCS) to protect these capabilities against enemy threat are now a top DoD priority. In particular, attainment of DCS will require operators to fuse, analyze and exploit critical information from a wide array of sources within a large and complex ...

  8. Distributed Relational Modeling for Counterspace Situation Awareness

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: AF03037

    CleverSet proposes to apply the variable-resolution Bayesian technology developed in Phase I to distributed counterspace situation awareness. Variable-resolution modeling provides the proven effectiveness of Bayesian data fusion in an efficient, scalable, distributed architecture. A recent breakthrough, relational Bayesian networks, provides an underlying entity-relationship data model, providin ...

  9. Mitigation of Aero-Optic Distortions by Active Flow Control

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF02T012

    A program to develop flow control techniques to reduce aero-optic distortion due to near field turbulence is proposed. The program combines the use of advanced computational techniques such as Large Eddy Simulations, new experimental methods such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Laser Speckle techniques, along with actuator development and modeling technology to achieve this goal. The demon ...

  10. Improved Trajectory Control for Penetration into Soils at 4000 ft/sec

    SBC: DE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04160

    We propose to investigate two approaches to improve earth-penetrator trajectory stability during high-speed penetration: hardening the nose and cleverly shaping the penetrator. An analytical and computational study will evaluate the merit and potential payoff of each approach, and specific means of implementing each approach will be selected for further development and testing.
