  3. Separation of Speech from Background

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Human ability to attend to a single voice in the presence of background interference is remarkable. If this could be imitated in practical technology it would be of great benefit for automatic speech recognition and other applications. Researchers at OhioState University have demonstrated computational methods for separating speech from interfering sounds that imitate human auditory processing, an ...

  4. Supportable Sandwich Control Surfaces


    Sandwich structural designs are the most weight efficient concepts for stability-critical components such as control surfaces. The objective of Phase I of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a honeycomb sandwich structure using aunique Double Wall Honeycomb design. This new ARDL honeycomb design is called Hexagonal Double wall structure or

  6. 3D Simulation of Laser Additive Manufacturing [3D-SLAM]

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Applied Optimization proposes to develop 3D Simulation of LAM, and verify its accuracy by correlating its results with microstructure data at the Boeing Phantom Works, for parts that are different from each other in terms of substrate and rib thicknesses,and build height. The simulation will model laser-powder-substrate interaction, using a combined analytical-numerical approach, such that it is t ...

  8. Agent Defeat Short Term Neutralization Data Colloction and Modeling

    SBC: AUBURN CHEMICAL CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    This research will determine extent and nature of the neutralization of bacterial spores when they are exposed, for very short times to high temperatures, pressures, and chemicals important in Agent Defeat weapons.. An exposure system will be constructedcapable of providing the ultra-short exposure times (on the order of ms) that are characteristic of bomb explosions and will be capable of exposi ...

    SBIR Phase II 2003 Department of DefenseAir Force


    Austral Engineering and Software, Inc. proposes to continue development of a strategy and software for integrating nondestructive evaluation (NDE) models and design tools, through a systems-based approach, into a computer-aided software system for productlife cycle design and optimization. In Phase I, AES developed a strategy for modeling and integration, built a proof-of-concept software system, ...

  10. Detecting and Extracting Image Similarities, Differences and Target Patterns

    SBC: Automation, Integration of Information & Sy            Topic: N/A

    This proposal proposes the synergistic integration of several methods for mining images, detecting, correlating and evaluating the existence of artifacts due to either hidden information or changes or target patterns or noise. The first method is based onthe Pixels Flow Functions (PFF) able to detect changes in images by projecting the pixel values vertically, horizontally and diagonally. These pr ...
