  1. Eigen-Similarity Integral (ESI)- A New Concept for Invariant Image Similarity Detection

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Most of today's precision guided weapons use Global Positioning System (GPS) signals to gain improved accuracy. But, as Operation Iraqi Freedom recently showed, foreign militaries have equipment to locally jam GPS signals. Another effective method ofautonomous navigation is necessary to ensure mission success. Similar to rudimentary terrain recognition used in early cruise missiles, the matching o ...

  2. Advanced Anti-Jam GPS Antenna Design Concepts


    The objective of the Advanced Anti-jam Design Techniques effort is to make a controlled Radiation Pattern Antenna (CRPA) have more elements without increasing the size, or make it the same antenna (i.e., same number of elements) smaller. The moreradiating elements that are available in a CRPA design, the more response nulls can be directed towards jammers. The inherent design problem that needs ...

  3. Fast Protection of Shipboard Electrical Power Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the work proposed herein is to develop and demonstrate an approach for the fast protection of shipboard electrical power systems based on a novel high-speed relay (HSR) algorithm. The algorithm quickly and correctly detects and isolatesfaults, long before current levels reach thresholds required for protection by overcurrent relays. The HSR algorithm is ``tunable'' for different a ...

  4. ASW Systems with Large Numbers of Advanced Autonomous Distributed Sensors


    IET proposes a self-organizing approach to solving the data fusion aspects of the challenges faced in executing the Advanced Autonomous Distributed Sensors (AADS) concept, the Navy''s next-generation littoral ASW/AsuW surveillance approach. We proposeto mitigate the false alarm rate problem, the so-called large-N problem, posed by the AADS that arises through the use of a large number of small, i ...

  5. Real-time Multimedia Communications in Highly Mobile Networks.

    SBC: Innovative Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Innovative Concepts will develop a communication system that will be deployed on the Loitering Electronic Warfare Killer (LEWK) UAV platform. Innovative Concepts in conjunction with the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) will determine the mosteffective ad-hoc network protocol that will support a highly mobile network architecture in a tactical environment. Specifically, our team will de ...

  6. Near-Net Shaped Fabrication of High Temperature Shape Memory Alloys

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    V-22 Osprey is a dual mode aircraft with tiltrotor capabilities for transition between hover and cruise mode operation. During the transition between modes, the aerodynamics of V-22 varies continuously. Various researchers are currently utilizing the shapememory behavior of SMAs to reconfigure the shape of the blade during flight, thus maximizing aerodynamic efficiency for each flight mode. The US ...

  10. Advanced Physics-Based Modeling of Discrete Clutter and Diffuse Reverberation in the Littoral Environment

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The performance of active Navy sonar systems in littoral environments is often limited by strong reverberation, typically from the seabed. Reverberation can be subdivided into discrete clutter events and diffuse bottom reverberation, with discrete clutterevents being the most serious problem for the utilization of current and future sonar systems. An accurate, physics-based model for the predictio ...
