  4. 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 ...

  5. Multifunctional Prepregs and Laminated Composites Made by Shear Pressing Carbon Nanotube Arrays

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT36

    A novel method of fabricating carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced polymer matrix composites is proposed. It includes growing super-aligned carbon nanotube arrays on a flat substrate, using NCSU proprietary shear pressing method to compress the grown arrays into a layer of densely packed, highly aligned CNTs inclined at an angle of several degrees to the substrate, separating the produced CNT sheet fr ...

  6. Enriched Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes for High Frequency Large Area Flexible Transistor Arrays

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF09BT26

    A great deal of research has been done on thin film Carbon Nanotube Transistors. Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNTs) have exceptional electrical properties, High speed circuits require high carrier mobility, and individual SWNTs have a carrier mobility of up to 120,000 cm2/Vs and can be doped n and p-type. Enriched semiconducting SWNTs (s-SWNTs), narrowed down to individual chiralities provid ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Holographic Waveguide Visor Display

    SBC: Bennett Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: AF093017

    Bennett Aerospace proposes to develop a transparent visor for helmet-mounted display (HMD) applications. The novel visor utilizes the wave-guiding characteristics of light to provide a low mass and a large eye box. BENEFIT: The revolutionary technology provides significant improvements in terms of mass, cost, volume and optical performance. Bennett Aerospace’s approach allows for a larger field ...

  10. 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 ...
