  1. Holistic Analysis, Visualization, & Characterization Assessment Tool (HAVCAT)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06T031

    In today's complex, multi-dimensional, coalition, effects-based campaigns; commanders must be able to "see" the situation in their decision making tasks. The modern fighting force is privy to an enormous array of intelligence gathering, database, and sensor sources of information to the point of over-saturation. Methods for visualizing the information in an intuitive manner must be established for ...

  2. Platform routing and data fusion technologies for Cooperative ISR

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: AF07T021

    In order for collaborative Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) to become a viable mission for an ever-expanding heterogonous UAV fleet, UAV autonomy must achieve autonomy level four (i.e. on-board route re-planning) and beyond (i.e. increasingly complex group coordination), so that operators are not overwhelmed with routine operational decisions. For UAV platform routing, current ...

  3. Advanced Finite Element Model Development for Characterization and Mitigation of Bone Conducted Sound Transmission in High Noise Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06T035

    Improved understanding of mechanisms controlling bone conduction (BC) sound transmission, especially with respect to acoustic excitation, is urgently needed in order to develop more effective hearing protection in extremely high noise fields. The Phase I research program made great progress toward this goal by yielding new insights into a mechanism believed to be a significant contributor to BC s ...

  4. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  5. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...

  6. Ionospheric Imaging Using NVIS

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: AF07T031

    Real-time estimation of relevant ionospheric parameters is required for military applications and to further our understanding of space weather and its societal and technological impacts. Currently, a major limitation in the modeling of ionospheric physics is a complete lack of input data measurements. The HF transmitter/receiver system proposed here contributes measurements of the bottom-side ion ...

  7. Reduced-Order High-Fidelity Models for Signature Propagation/WAVE

    SBC: AVID LLC            Topic: A07T028

    A reduced-order signature propagation model, with comparable full scale finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) accuracy is proposed. The reduced-order model achieves reductions in computational resources and time. Existing FDTD acoustic and seismic sensor models require supercomputing / multiprocessor level resources, which are impractical in a real time military / battlefield environment. The pr ...

  8. Near Surface Flow Control and Electrical Power Extraction Using Magnetohydrodynamics

    SBC: Cellular Materials International, Inc.            Topic: AF05T016

    The objective of this STTR Phase II proposal is to build a versatile, near-surface light weight multifunctional metallic structure that can be used for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) control and power generation. In order to achieve these goals, a controlled plasma must be generated in air with high efficiency, the air must pass through a strong magnetic field, and current must be able to flow through ...

  9. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  10. High efficiency deep green light emitting diode

    SBC: CRYSTAL PLEX            Topic: A07T018

    Crystalplex has developed novel semiconductor nanocrystal technology that can be a platform solution to meet the Army's desire for a light emitting diode (LED) with enhanced output in the deep green region using nanoparticles. This innovation produces an efficient deep green (555-585 nm) nanoparticle emitter capable of sustaining the Army's stated goal of 120 lumens per watt of input power. Crys ...
