  1. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  2. Real Time 3-D Modeling and Immersive Visualization for Enhanced Soldier Situation Awareness

    SBC: Carnegie Robotics LLC            Topic: A12aT003

    We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban canyons, and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that wirelessly supply compressed 3D range data and color imagery to a central Fusion Node. The Fusion Node runs 3D recon ...

  3. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The innovation proposed is a computationally-tractable, physics-based, portable turbulent combustion modeling strategy for application to a wide range of Air Force aero-propulsive systems, including augmentors, liquid rockets and scramjets. This modeling strategy will be implemented within an Application Programming Interface (API) library suitable for easy integration within Air Force ...

  4. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  5. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  6. High Speed High Accuracy Artificial Neural Networks for UAV based Target Identification

    SBC: UHV TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF18BT007

    The machine learning and artificial intelligence community has recently garnered much attention for ground breaking performance of novel neural network architectures for self-driving cars. One of the machine learning methods used in self-driving cars is semantic segmentation. In this fashion each pixel in an image is label with a class, allowing for contour-based image segmentation which is differ ...

  7. Contour Based Image Segmentation

    SBC: VY CORPORATION            Topic: AF18BT007

    We propose to detect and identify moving objects in airborne imagery and full-motion video in unconstrained environments. Conventional techniques result in too many false positives; a new topology is needed to automatically detect and identify moving targets from a moving platform in airborne imagery. Our software is designed to analyze video imagery and deliver curve metadata that can be organize ...

  8. Small UAS compatible Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) Sensors

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: AF18BT009

    Proposed herein are novel design methodologies to create sensors for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and/or explosive (CBRNE) detection aboard a Small Unmanned Aerial System (SUAS), as well as intelligent Bayesian-based plume analysis and source detection algorithms that offer capabilities for the Air Force above and beyond the state of the art. The assembled technical team of experts ...

  9. Multiphysics Modeling of Dynamic Combustion Processes

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF18BT010

    The objective of this effort is to develop a zonal, multi-physics modeling framework for dynamic combustion processes that can capture relevant local physics and simulate system behavior. The primary focus will be on liquid rocket combustors with secondary application to gas turbines. The goal is to obtain an order of magnitude reduction in current simulation time within acceptable error limits. T ...

  10. Low-Energy Adiabatic Circuits for Space Applications

    SBC: SIGNAL SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: AF18BT013

    Adiabatic logic-based energy-conserving circuits have potential to significantly improve energy efficiency. Adiabatic circuits recycle charge stored in load capacitance resulting in lower power dissipation as compared to conventional CMOS. However, these circuits have only targeted low-frequency operations. Research is needed to develop adiabatic logic circuits for high performance applications wi ...
