  1. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: The ability of plasmas to modify combustion has been known for more than 50 years. Recent advances in plasma generation technology and measurement diagnostics have led to extensive efforts to understand both the kinetics of the plasma-flame interaction and the enhancement of combustion properties such as ignition, extinction, flame speed and dynamics. Combustion Science & Engineering, ...

  2. Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation: From Landmarks via Bearing to Controls

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A12aT030

    The proposed Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation System will enable UGVs to operate semi-autonomously with minimal input from an operator even in degraded communication environments. Semi-autonomous landmark-based navigation in low-texture indoor environments is difficult due to the lack of distinctive micro-features needed by conventional algorithms such as SIFT and SURF. In Phase I, Intelligent Aut ...

  7. Circadian Rhythm Monitoring and Regulation Device (CMR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A14AT009

    The Department of Defense is concerned with circadian rhythm misalignments as they are known to affect judgment, psychomotor skills, and can lead to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). At present, there is no comprehensive unobtrusive and easy-to-use solution that measures the circadian misalignment and automatically administers the appropriate therapy for realignment of circadian rhythm. Intel ...
