  1. Wind Turbine Clutter Mitigation

    SBC: Matrix Research, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: Matrix and CSU are poised to develop algorithms to suppress radar WTC while preserving signals from targets of interest such as aircraft and weather. Our processing approach will be capable of utilizing radar data from either stationary- or scanning-mode ground-based systems. We will work closely with our transition partner to develop a Phase II transition plan to integrate our approac ...

  2. Precise Positioning with Local Signal Carrier Phase Measurements and Global Positioning System (GPS) Fusion

    SBC: Gird Systems, Inc.            Topic: N14AT009

    Carrier phase measurements in GPS are well known to enable precision performance. However, GPS is easily degraded or jammed. Carrier phase measurements in a local radio system, on the other hand, is much easier due to its much stronger signal level compared with GPS. In this proposal GIRD Systems will investigate feasibility of precise positioning techniques based on carrier phase measurements fr ...

  5. Exploitable Physics for Recognition and Classification II

    SBC: Matrix Research, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to demonstrate innovative methods for deriving a sparse set of physical target features that can be used for exploitation of air-to-ground signature data collected from sensor systems including electro-optical, infrared, ladar, and radar. Current classification methods require near exact replication of the original imaging parameters, or extensive modelin ...

  6. Advanced Optical Diagnostics/Modeling Platform for Plasma Assisted Combustion in Vitiated Air

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: Modern gas-turbine engines designs for the next-generation warfighter need to reduce exhaust gas temperatures to reduce effective thermal footprint thereby improving the mission capability. In such situations, high-altitude engine operation is often limited by the overall combustion efficiency, lean flame blow out (LBO) limit, and combustion instabilities that results in narrower opera ...

  8. Integral Fuel Tank Self-sealing Protection

    SBC: MATERIALS ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES CORP.            Topic: N12AT001

    The opportunity presented under this program is to develop a next-generation, self-sealing technology that can impart self-sealing capability to the most vulnerable areas of integral aircraft fuel tanks. Targeted application of the self-sealing materials will reduce the weight and fuel-volume penalty associated with conventional fuel bladder constructions. Under the Phase I program, the technical ...

  9. A novel Approach for High Rate Production of IR to IR Up-converting Nano-particles

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: Phosphor materials are currently being utilized in a wide variety of applications. The requirements for phosphors have become more and more stringent with smaller and smaller particles being required. In the Phase I program UES Inc. in collaboration with Penn State University has demonstrated the feasibility of a few approaches for high rate production of high efficiency IR to IR up-con ...
