  1. Biologically-inspired low light integrated vision systems

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: Our objective is to develop a vision system for a micro air vehicle (MAV) or other robotic system that allows it to operate in extremely low light levels. We will develop systems capable of operating in ambient light or with active illumination carried aboard the vehicle, and will explore both silicon-based sensors for the visible/NIR band and hybridized sensors for the SWIR and/or MWIR ...

  2. Real-time Location of Targets in Cluttered Environments

    SBC: Wave CPC Inc.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this STTR project is to develop a mathematical tool to simulate EM scattering in a cluttered environment. The main sources of clutter included are periodic scattering from windmills, reflections from fixed topography and effects due to varying atmospheric properties. BENEFIT: Increase radar capability to detect targets over wind farms.

  4. Adaptive multi-sensor wide area situational awareness system

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: AF12BT14

    ABSTRACT: Confronted by a vast quantity of data, presented piecemeal, sporadically and at varying levels of detail, the human analyst is often overwhelmed when trying to effectively monitor even medium-sized areas of interest. Offline, there is a wealth of data, resolution, and time to pick through and find activities of interest. Given a large amount of high resolution data, we can simulate situ ...

  5. New Rare Earth Free High Performance Permanent Magnets with High Energy Product and Mechanical Strength

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    Recently, the availability of the high performance rare earth based magnets (Nd-Fe-B and Sm-Co) was jeopardized due to the Chinese monopoly of rare earth production, which undermines our national security and competitiveness in the defense and clean energy sectors and creates a strategic vulnerability for the United States. This STTR proposal aims at developing the next generation of rare earth f ...

  6. 3-D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: Multiscale Design Systems, LLC            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: An experimental and computational effort is proposed to develop a data-driven experimentally-validated framework for analysis of plastically bonded energetic materials at meso and micro scales. A unique data-mining strategy and model reduction technology based on thermodynamics and manifold learning techniques and on nonlocal dispersive reduced order model will be devised. Reduced order ...

  9. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor has been shown to be an effective element as the core of a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The response of the computing circuit is the result of weighted external stimuli, the current state of the device, and the history of exposure by the device to the stimuli. A highly specialized version of the device, as developed by the Advanc ...
