  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. Terahertz Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF09BT33

    Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...

  7. Creation of a Global UV-VIS-IR Ocean Background Model That is a Function of Time, Location and Sea State

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA09035

    The AEgis Technologies Group proposes to develop a robust modular ocean radiance model with FLITES as the primary focus for integration. The associated phenomenology of the ocean under various conditions has been identified for the implementation of first order principles. Other factors considered include runtime performance and flexibility to seamlessly interface with other computer codes for bo ...

  8. Photonic Band Gap Structures for Solar Energy Generation

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: SB092002

    The demand for renewable energy is motivating R&D efforts toward the development of novel photovoltaic (PV) technology. Efficient and low cost solar cells will have an important role in defense applications particularly powering portable electronic devices. Current solar cells based on single crystal silicon are still not at a level to be cost effective when compared to other forms of electrical g ...

  9. New Laser Eye Protection (LEP) Technology for Visors

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF083013

    Laser eye protection is important due to the availability of laser sources (continuous and pulsed) over a broad range of wavelengths. The military uses many laser systems (e.g., training devices, range finders, target designators, communications devices) that emit potentially eye damaging radiation. Because personnel risk exposure to these devices, a growing need exists for eye protection at a va ...

  10. Measurement of laser irradiance on target for directed energy weapons

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF093009

    The Laser Irradiance Measurement on Target (LIMT) project will provide a sensor mesh for direct, on-target measurement of laser beam characteristics of interest (e.g., irradiance level, beam size, time history of beam shape). Activities during Phase 1 of this project include identification and prioritization of requirements; design of system and subsystem components; evaluation of component design ...
