  1. Reliable Target Area of Uncertainty from an Underwater Acoustic Source(s)

    SBC: Signal Systems Corporation            Topic: N172122

    The Phase II Buoy Localization and Uncertainty Estimation (BLUE) program is developing advanced algorithms and software to improve target localization error in air ASW multistatic sonar missions. Significant improvements in target localization come from three distinct technology advancements: better knowledge of sonobuoy motion, more accurate target tracks, and improved fine bearing measurements f ...

  2. Ignition Modeling for Present and Future Combustors and Augmentors


    The ability to predict the ignitibility potential of a combustor at various operating conditions is not practical at this time due to the complexity of this process. Ignition within a gas turbine combustor is dependent on various parameters; including spark (or plasma) energy, flow conditions, fuel/air ratio, and fuel spray density. All these parameters must be properly predicted in order to effec ...

  3. Deep Learning for Clutter Reduction in Multi-static Coherent Active Sonar Systems

    SBC: Signal Systems Corporation            Topic: N171005

    Pattern Recognition on Bayesian Estimates (PROBE) is a set of software enhancements for the Multistatic Active Coherent System (MAC) which improve clutter screening and reduce operator workload by using a convolutional deep neural network that interprets the outputs of a Likelihood Ratio Tracker (LRT). PROBE will improve MAC operations by providing earlier contact follower creation, improving trac ...

  5. ORION: Operational Robot with Intelligent Off-road Navigation

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A17AT019

    For Robotic/Autonomous Systems (RAS) to be truly effective in the battlefield, they need to be integrated with intelligent decision-making capabilities. In particular, the following capabilities will help them dealing with the challenging real-world problems of off-road navigation: 1) Accurate terrain traversability assessment; 2) Optimal trajectory computation; and 3) Effective maneuver selection ...

  6. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  7. Non-GPS Relative Navigation for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) Refueling

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF171054

    The ability to refuel piloted aircraft in flight is a strategic military advantage that has been critical to success in every DoD military engagement of the jet age. Adding the capability to refuel Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) will increase the number of aircraft that can be kept on station, as well as their time on station, thereby extending USAF reach and its ability to protect allies while p ...

  8. Radar Waveform Diversity

    SBC: Saze Technologies, LLC            Topic: A16111

    To obtain spectrum dominance the U.S. Army needs to make use of all the Radio Frequency assets on their Size Weight and Power constrained platforms. Thus, it is critical that the radar apertures can also perform other tasks such as communications and ESM. To do so efficiently requires the multiplexing of multiple modes onto the aperture, overcoming radar-hardware limitations such as the use of non ...

  10. SWAC3: Secure Wireless Architecture for Combat Casualty Care

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A14051

    Current practice for handling pre-hospital documentation is primarily paper based with several major limitations such as ease of loss or destruction, susceptibility to the environment, etc., which along with other factors have been identified as the reasons for the lack of pre-hospital care documentation. Moreover, the information related to care rendered by one unit (e.g., first responders at the ...
