  1. Application of Cortical Processing Theory to Acoustical Analysis

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc. (AAC) proposes to implement a computational model of human auditory processing based upon cortical theory and to demonstrate its utility to evaluate and improve systems for speech communication and automated recognition ofspectro-temporal patterns. Specifically, AAC believes that unusual brain representations and processing strategies are largely responsible for th ...

  2. Advanced Fibers, Anti-Friction Materials and Jackets for Navy Ropes

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Develop new large diameter, high strength rope that meets the criteria. Identify materials and process to develop the rope. Perform tests to optimize life and robustness when used for winches, cranes or STREAM highline applications. New rope materialswould have many potential commercial applications. Commercial shipping companies are transitioning to synthetic mooring lines. Mining and cran ...

  5. Self-Diagnosis of Damage Criticality of Fibrous Composites Based on Multifunctional Characteristics

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Impact Technologies has teamed with the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) and Professor William Curtin from Brown University to develop an autonomous damage detection, classification, and prognostic system for carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer(CFRP) structures. The proposed approach fuses data and information from a set of optimally placed electrodes and associated electro-mechanical mo ...

  6. Innovative Vehicle Camouflage


    The use of battlefield camouflage is beyond a doubt an effective countermeasure against human vision and aided vision target acquisition systems. Effective camouflage is such a valuable countermeasure because it is passive and hence continuously effective,within a given environment. However, optimal camouflage effectiveness requires that the camouflage pattern (i.e., color and spatial design) be ...

  7. LCAC Cargo Restraint Griping System

    SBC: Ithaca Mechanical Systems Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Ithaca Mechanical Systems Corporation proposes to reduce LCAC cargo removal time by introducing Single Point of Release (SPR) tie down systems. New materials will be researched for both cargo restraint and release mechanisms with the intent to reducemanual operations by soldiers. Shape memory alloy and piezo-electric will be investigated for application in both tension and deck hold release mech ...

  8. Compact Liquid Cooled Inductors


    The goal of this project is to establish the feasibility of Liquid Cooled Inductors (LCI) of high Power Density. To accomplish this, Premag has teamed with a system builder to develop a prototypical inductor design. The LCI will be designed to reducethe weight of inductors in a prototypical Navy power converter. The LCI will consist of high-flux-density core, coil and heat exchanger. A trade-of ...

  9. Pocketable Language Translation System for use in Noisy Environments

    SBC: SPEECHGEAR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Statement: To develop and deploy a Pocketable Language Translation System that identifies languages and user-selected keywords as they are spoken in the foreign language. Users will enter keywords into the system using their native language andthe system will automatically identify when they occur in the foreign language that is being spoken. This system will provide robust and reliable ...

  10. Multiple-security Multimedia Collaboration Environment (MMCE)

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Traditionally, the security policy between multi-level and coalition activities was implemented by a combination of automated guards and proper human directives about what should be produced for dissemination and by the use of human downgraders formanually checking information flows. However, such traditional solutions do not support the needs of collaborative multimedia applications that will do ...
