  1. Ad Hoc Routing for Nanosatellite Constellation Communications

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This proposal suggests an approach to providing self-organizing network communications between the nodes comprising a nanosatellite constellation. Using the proposing firm's existing body of work on self-organizing ad hoc networks for 802.11 wireless LANsand miniaturized robotics platforms as a baseline, issues relating to ad hoc networking in a nanosatellite constellations will be identified, a ...

  2. Common Data Access Models and Services Using Datalets

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force needs to access a large variety of databases with varying data schemas and storage architectures from an equally large variety of applications. This presents a rewarding but challenging problem of enabling access to these databases via commondata access models and services. This problem, and also its most challenging implementation aspect, is particularly significant in the context o ...

  4. In Situ Evaluation of Composite Structural Performance in Presence of High Stress/Strain Gradients using Multiaxis Fiber Grating Strain Sensors

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    In order to measure multi-axis strain fields and strain field gradients interior to composite materials, it is necessary to be able to measure both transverse axes of strain and axial strain. In addition, these sensors should be capable of measuringstrain gradients. Blue Road Research has developed a multi-axis fiber optic grating sensor that can be used to meet these requirements. This proposa ...

  7. Fiber Optic Grating Strain Field Measurement for Aging Aircraft

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    A system is proposed that has the capability of being able to measure hundreds of fiber gratings in a single line. By combining this technology with the multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors developed by Blue Road Research as well as fiber pressure,temperature and moisture sensors effective health monitoring systems for aging aircraft can be realized. Blue Road Research intends to use this tech ...

  8. Work-Centered Interface Technology

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The mismatch between worker needs and information systems design and performance has long been noted, and has given rise to a long body of research on ways to factor the user more explicitly into the interface and system design process. Active interfacesthat act as infomediaries between underlying systems and their users, offer the most comprehensive solution to this usability problem, but also po ...

  9. A Decision Aid for a Surveillance Satellite Crew Shift Supervisor

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    To be effective in today's threat environment, the Air Force's Global Engagement doctrine asserts that personnel be responsive, innovative, adaptable, and agile. This will be particularly important for the Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Low CrewChief. The SBIRS Low Crew Chief will have to manage a team with frequently changing personnel, groups of personnel with different specializations, a ...

  10. Cognitive Demands of Warfighter Readiness

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The intent of the proposed effort is to develop and demonstrate a feasible design for the Cognition-Centered Constructivistic Program of Instruction (C3PI) for Aircrew Planning. C3PI will consist of a set of training interventions that are designed tostrategically build aircrew mission planning proficiency. These interventions will include strategies embedded in the pre-mission planning phase an ...
