  7. Novel, High-Temperature Power-Generation for Long Duration Hypersonic Platforms

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF15AT39

    ABSTRACT: The ability to convert extreme aerodynamic heating into electricity via thermoelectric generators presents a unique opportunity to leverage this otherwise undesirable condition. The harvested energy can be used to power the significant electrical demand of a hypersonic/long range vehicle while also aiding in managing high temperatures. To address this need for an high temperature thermoe ...

  9. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...

  10. Brahms Contested Airspace Simulation Testbed (Brahms-CAST)

    SBC: Aqru Research and Technology, LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: Remarkable advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and human-systems integration are providing aircrew with cockpit automation systems of unprecedented sophistication. Onboard intelligent assistants monitor the aircraft, interpret and carry out pilot commands, and advise the pilot (onboard or remote) as to aircraft and system status, mission progress, threats and alerts. Because pilots ...
