  1. Eddy current detection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lock fastener

    SBC: ALBANY INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop novel eddy current probes based on spin dependenttunneling (SDT) magnetoresistive (MR) sensors to enhance the probability ofdetection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lok fasteners. Preliminaryresults show that the use of shaped excitation coils, together with extremelysensitive SDT sensors properly positioned above the structure under inspection,provides a si ...

  2. Affordable Control/Trajectory Management Systems for Unmanned Air or Space Vehicles

    SBC: Veloxiti            Topic: N/A

    There is a major need for unmanned vehicles that act autonomously from humans,thereby reducing both the amount of supervision necessary and the cost associatedwith their operation. In order to accomplish this task, autonomous vehicles musthave the ability to make decisions, assess their health and environment, dynamicallyre-plan, and control their movements in a dynamic and unpredictable environm ...

  4. Common Data Access Models and Services Using Datalets

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force needs to access a large variety of databases with varying data schemas and storage architectures from an equally large variety of applications. This presents a rewarding but challenging problem of enabling access to these databases via commondata access models and services. This problem, and also its most challenging implementation aspect, is particularly significant in the context o ...

  6. Novel LADAR Signature Exploitation for Obscured Target Environments

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Laser radars (ladars) have been investigated for the detection, classification and terminal tracking of military targets. One area of concern is the performance of automatic target acquisition (ATA) algorithms on targets that are stochastically obscuredby foliage. A program is proposed that will increase the understanding of target obscuration while increasing the set of non-proprietary ATA algo ...
