  1. Signal Processing and Exploitation for High-Dimensional Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF06219

    A probabilistic ATR framework is proposed to exploit coincident multi-aspect radar and EO video data for target detection, tracking, and classification/identification. The mathematical framework is constituted by four principal components with a particular focus on exploitation of 3D information from radar scattering: 1) extraction of features indicative of shape and structure from radar waveform ...

  3. Vibration Analysis of Rotating Plant Machinery

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: AF073135

    The Arnold Engineering Development Center has witnessed vibration anomalies on facility equipment that have raised concerns about possible catastrophic or costly failures. In response, AEDC is seeking an advanced, comprehensive condition monitoring system to provide accurate and timely health information; information that will allow AEDC to foresee and avoid unexpected, and possibly catastrophic ...

  4. Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

    SBC: STRAD Corporation            Topic: AF083184

    Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce reflections off the target, during Phase I, we have developed two new approaches for discriminating small delay differences from a sequence of radar dwells ...

  5. Corrosion and Fatigue Degradation Analysis and Forecasting System

    SBC: POSITRON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083225

    The proposed effort in Phase II is to develop, produce, and demonstrate a prototype inspection platform and complementary damage modeling tool as a complete nondestructive evaluation solution referred to as the X-Ray Corrosion Detection System (XCDS). This system will be based on the state of the art radiographic techniques including narrow-bandwidth, spectral, and phase-contrast radiography, as w ...

  6. Innovative Techniques for Defeating HDBT/UGF

    SBC: Bennett Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: AF093096

    Bennett Aerospace proposes to develop an innovative system that will neutralize hard and deeply buried targets (HDBTs). The system would incorporate a novel technologies and advance materials to gain access to the target for intended missions. BENEFIT: This approach will expand upon existing technologies that will be adapted for this application. The benefits of Bennett Aerospace’s modified-COTS ...

  7. A Proactive Countermeasure to Harden Integrated Circuits Against Exploitation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD10IA1

    We propose to implement a novel countermeasure against the exploitation of integrated circuit hardware. The proposed countermeasure is applicable to both FPGAs and ASICs, increases design obfuscation and promises to block embedded hardware exploits. It also is fully compatible with virtually any other hardware exploit countermeasure and reduces forensic costs when exploits are suspected. The propo ...

  8. Embedded Wire for Aircraft Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF093006

    The state of wiring in aging aircraft has been an increasing concern in recent years. Wire deteriorates with age and environmental conditions, particularly inflight vibration, which causes wires chafing. Wire failures can result in aircraft downtime, higher maintenance costs, mission failure, and even an aircraft crash. Composite materials may present a unique solution to the aging wire problem. ...

  9. DTACSS: Decision-Theoretic Automation for Coordinated Space Surveillance

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF093058

    While the United States is increasingly reliant on space-based technologies, our satellite assets are increasingly vulnerable to attacks and collisions with debris or other satellites. Current space surveillance systems are stovepiped and unresponsive; when possible collisions ("orbital conjunctions") are detected in advance, additional tracking data can only be acquired through complex human inte ...

  10. Kinetic Power for Dismounted Warriors

    SBC: Bennett Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: AF093023

    Bennett Aerospace proposes to develop an innovative method of generating electrical power via soldier-worn systems. Our approach integrates energy harvesting structures into various locations on garments and equipment in order to collect kinetic energy. The structures are lightweight and flexible. BENEFIT: Benefits to this approach are numerous in that it provides a simple, though novel, method of ...
