  1. Airworthy Cable Angle Measurement System For Slung Load Operations

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A09013

    Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS) has developed and demonstrated the Cable Angle Measurement System, a low-cost, accurate system for measuring a helicopter’s load position and motion at the end of an external sling. By using a camera, an LED target, and custom electronics, the AOS system measures the load’s angle with better than 0.1° accuracy across a 150° field of view and with 0.1°/s ...

  2. Autonomous Persistent Surveillance and Targeting for the Asymmetric Air Threat (APSTAAT)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N07209

    Maritime asymmetric threat detection begins with an in depth comprehension of the tactical picture. Security lies in the ability to sense threats in all environments. Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS), together with partners Technology Systems, Inc. (TSI) and Raytheon IDS, have joined together to propose APSTAAT. APSTAAT is a system for autonomous persistent surveillance for the asymmetric air ...

  3. Advanced LADAR Imagery Augmentation Systems (ALIAS)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N08147

    Visually degraded environment (VDE) conditions pose a threat to Navy and Marine Corps helicopter operations during landings and troop insertions/extractions. Blinding dust clouds caused by rotor down-wash during low level flight can cause pilots to suddenly lose all visual cues. This loss of situational awareness (SA) creates significant risks from other aircraft and ground obstacles. According to ...

  4. Terminal Guidance for Autonomous Aerial Refueling

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N101073

    Advanced Optical Systems Proximity Operations Measurements System (POMS) for terminal guidance during Autonomous Aerial Refueling (AAR) provides relative position and attitude, all 6 Degrees of Freedom (DoF), in a manner similar to that sensed by a human pilot. POMS recognizes and locates features on the tanker and drogue with a sensor on the UAS and converts the relative location of those feature ...

  5. MH-60S Vertical Replenishment Object Proximity Warning System ~ Safe Inter-ship Transfer Operations (SITO)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N093186

    Our baseline concept is to precisely locate the aircraft relative to the ship, using a cooperative 6 Degree of Freedom (6-DoF) optical sensing system. The system also identifies the ship though time modulation on the sensing system. The 6-DoF information is combined with a database of the ship’s geometry to provide Object Proximity Warning data to the Ground Proximity Warning System. The system ...

  6. Constant Pressure Aerospike for Interceptor Axial Propulsion

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA09001

    Our proposed effort will be used to determine the feasibility of a deeply-throttleable aerospike engine that maintains constant specific impulse performance, regardless of the throttle setting. The design incorporates technology previously demonstrated under another SBIR, but extends it through incorporation of an aerospike nozzle.

  7. Qu Tubes for High Temperature Heat Rejection

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF093079

    In our proposed effort, we intend to perform high temperature (100-200 Deg C) characterization of an ultra-advanced heat pipe to determine feasibility of using it in high temperature space radiators. In previous work, we have shown that the so-called "Qu Tube" achieves exceptionally high thermal transport rates at lower temperatures. BENEFIT: Our innovation will significantly reduce the size of ...

  8. Test Methodology and Equipment for Radiation Hardened Interceptors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA08009

    The Radiation Test Environment Simulation Toolkit (RadTEST) is capable of flowing down radiation environment requirements to the development of test plans, post-test analysis, and test reports. It''s capabilities include: --Access to RadCat Parts and Materials Database --Test Facility Catalog with Radiation Spectra --Interface with Radiation Transport Codes --Electronic Test Plan Generation --Ele ...

  9. Multi-Attribute Reliability and Maintainability Engineering Assessment Methodology

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF093193

    The ability of humans to make complex decisions is one of the most interesting aspects of human intelligence, especially when judgemental, ambiguous, absense, or erratic knowledge is concerned. This project focuses on the development of a methodology to classify multi-attribute alternatives into evidence blocks for evaluation in automated decision support processes. Anautics developed approach com ...

  10. Decision Support System Based On Collaborative-orientated System Engineering Cpabilities

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF083229

    The Engineering Decision Support Framework (EDSF) will provide an engineer a SEAM based process lifecycle to implement detailed analysis of problem reports, assistance requests, requirements and other issues issues encountered. The engineer will be guided through the creation of criteria, alternatives and evaluation techniques in order to make a better decision. BENEFIT: The EDSF is needed throu ...
