  1. Dynamic 3-D Threat Mapping Using a Sensor Constellation Deployed on Mobile Platforms

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A10AT022

    In this effort, Physical Sciences Inc. will develop and implement algorithms and hardware to perform the fusion of information obtained from multiple LWIR passive hyperspectral sensors to provide the capability to determine the extent, absolute geo-location, and 3-D concentration distribution of chemical threat clouds from mobile platforms. The effort will be conducted in conjunction with Professo ...

  2. Improving the Physics of Applied Reverberation Models

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services and Instrumentation Systems, Inc.            Topic: N13AT026

    The proposed work will address the core physics underlying acoustic reverberation as related to properties of the ocean environment and properties of the acoustic sources, receivers and waveforms that make up ocean-going acoustic systems of interest to the U.S. Navy. Present day active acoustic system performance models, which contain reverberation models as an essential component, are over twenty ...

  3. Preserving Navigation Access for the War Fighter Development of an Acoustic Marine Life Watch System to Support Corps Channel Maintenance and Enhanc

    SBC: SOFAR Acoustics, LLC            Topic: A12aT025

    This effort is focused on establishing U.S. Army Corps leadership in preserving navigation access for the war fighter through the development and implementation of an acoustic-based sensor system to detect, track, and classify large aquatic animals. The proposed high frequency imaging active sonar system is configurable to detect, track, classify, and alert to the presence of threatened and endang ...

  4. Light-Weight Atmospheric Diving Suit

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N13AT029

    The Navy is seeking a new light-weight Atmospheric Diving Suit (ADS) design. This suit must be less than 400 lbs; at this weight a diver will be able to self-propel using his legs and fins. The system must ensure the divers safety at a working depth of 1000 ft of sea-water; protecting the body from the high external pressure at depth, while providing a sustainable 1 ATM internal pressure. Mide in ...

  5. Mitigation of USV Motions via Wave Sensing and Prediction

    SBC: VECTOR CONTROLS, INC.            Topic: N10AT036

    A boats coxswain is adept at analyzing the wave environment, adjusting the crafts propulsion system and control surfaces to mitigate its motions and reduce the chance of capsizing. There is a significant predictive component in the coxswains control decisions. Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) lack the benefit of a highly trained coxswain reading and predicting oncoming waves - existing autonomous ...

  6. Real-time In-situ Adaptation of Decision Parameters for Undersea Target Tracking in a Sensor Field

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N10AT038

    Detection of moving targets in spatially-variable and uncertain environments is of prime importance in maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems. However, the situational context may prohibit the placement of a single fixed long-term ISR system that can be fine-tuned to maximize performance in the area of interest. In such situations, distributed fields of passive sensor ...

  7. Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Uncertainty Quantification Using an Ant Swarm Model

    SBC: PRIME SOLUTIONS GROUP, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA12T007

    STTR Phase I Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) technical feasibility demonstration using advanced mathematical techniques and Biologically Inspired Computing Architecture (BICA) concepts is proposed for Phase II prototype development. UQ in complex System of Systems (SoS) M & S environments is emphasized in Phase II. Graph theory based M & S techniques are explored that enhance and facilitate topi ...

  9. Visualization, Human Systems, Information Systems

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: ST12A004

    We propose to develop a toolkit and environment for social media visualization, exploiting scientifically grounded design principles embodied in visual thinking design patterns (VTDPs). Much like software design patterns, VTDPs are reusable blueprints for design of new interactive visualizations: they describe the steps in the visual thinking process that capture operations occurring in a computer ...

  10. A Flexible and Extensible Solution to Incorporating New RF Devices and Capabilities into EW/ ISR Networks

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: ST13A004

    The objective of this project is to evolve the RF device ontology developed in Phase I, design and implement a run time prototype system, develop a test environment and perform an evaluation of the approach developed in Phase I. Based upon the findings and success of Phase I, we propose to continue the work on the Dev2WALDO ontology, augment it with necessary concepts, design and develop a prototy ...
