  1. Advanced Finite Element Model Development for Characterization and Mitigation of Bone Conducted Sound Transmission in High Noise Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06T035

    Improved characterization of the dominant paths of bone conducted sound transmission caused by external acoustic excitation for a person wearing a plug/earmuff combination is urgently needed for development of effective hearing protection in extremely high noise fields. This two phase program will achieve this ambitious goal through the extensive use of computer simulation techniques which are su ...

  2. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  3. Integrated Visual and Inertial Sensor Information for Onboard Navigation (I-VISION)


    Given the vulnerability of the GPS system to intentional or hostile denial of service, it is imperative that the U.S. military develop technologies that provide robust navigation solutions that do not rely on GPS data. To achieve this capability, Aurora and MIT have teamed to develop the Integrated Visual and Inertial Sensor Information Onboard Navigation (I-VISION) system, which will couple opti ...

  4. Adaptive Control of Synthetic Jet Arrays with Unknown Nonlinearities

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Active flow control using synthetic jet actuators has been the subject of significant research in recent years. Modulated input signals to achieve flow control objectives have been shown to be highly nonlinear and complex. Developing a comprehensive, wind tunnel-validated model of synthetic jet actuators in a single application is technically challenging and expensive. Given the varied and growi ...

  5. SQUIRE: Security Escorts for Untrusted Software

    SBC: Global InfoTek, Inc            Topic: OSD06SP2

    Global InfoTek, Inc. and MIT intend to produce a new computer security environment, SQUIRE, that mitigates the ubiquitous, unavoidable risk of using untrusted applications by strengthening the weakest link: the interaction between the human and complex, unintuitive security mechanisms. Usability of security is critical, since without it systems are frequently too hard to understand or too cumberso ...

  6. Carbon Fiber Nanotube Reinforced Alumina Nanocomposite

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: AF05T023

    Reinforced tough ceramics that fail gracefully are requied for structural components in airframes and engines of military and commercial airplanes. The expected toughening was not realized when alumina powder, containing carbon nanotubes (CNTs), was consolidated by hot isostatic pressing due to the destruction of the CNTs at the high temperatures encountered. HY-Tech has demonstrated in the Phase ...

  7. Software Protection Vulnerability Assessment through Kernel Analysis and Relationship Maps

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD06NC4

    Traditional development efforts leave software vulnerable to reverse engineering, tamper, and access by unauthorized individuals (insider threat). While these threats are not new, advancements in easily hidden removable media such as USB drives and memory cards make them more prevalent. One low-cost technique for software protection is to utilize a kernel module capable of securely decrypting and ...

  8. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: Qynergy Corporation            Topic: MDA05T005

    Qynergy Corporation proposes to develop a unique power system for space targets for RADAR calibration and test of advanced discrimination technologies and concepts. There is a need for well-characterized cooperative space targets that can decrease reliance on expensive BMDS integrated flight tests. The space target system would consist of at least 2 objects: a cone of approximately 1-m diameter, ...

  9. Instrumentation for Monitoring Breath Biomarkers for Diagnosis of Health, Condition, Toxic Exposure, and Disease

    SBC: RESPIRATORY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF04T017

    Exhaled breath condensate (EBC) pH is a non-invasive measurement capable of identifying lung redox- and acid-stresses that occur in association with inflammatory conditions (pneumonia, trauma, asthma), acidic gas inhalation (chlorine), and gastric acid aspiration. Phase I efforts focused on the development of methodology to continuously measure EBC pH in critically ill or injured mechanically-ven ...

  10. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...
