  1. Lightweight sandwich composites for improved thermal and acoustic performance

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N03157

    In the phase I SBIR program, Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR), along with its partner developed an innovative manufacturing process for thermal and acoustic shielding sandwich composite components for the EFV. These panels met all thermal and weight requirements, were affordable and were close to the acoustic requirements outlined in the phase I solicitation. ACR is confident that with sui ...

  2. Technologies to Defeat Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04901

    The objective of the proposed development effort is to utilize a sensor which detects IEDs and detonation devices. The sensor detector is mounted on a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) such that detection can be performed from a autonomous airborne platform ahead of a convoy or patrol, thereby reducing the risk of loss of life. A positive identification was achieved from a UAV approximately 75 ...

  3. Sonobuoy Launched small UAV system

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04T004

    The Navy and other government-sponsored agencies use the P-3 aircraft. Due to the diverse missions and limited number of P-3 aircraft, the most economical and expeditious way to enhance operations and assure crew safety would be to incorporate low-cost expendable tactical unmanned air vehicles (UAV's). If UAVs were incorporated into each P-3, a load-out of sonobuoy launched UAV's with interchange ...

  4. Permanent Fiber Optic Splice

    SBC: ALL OPTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N04002

    We will develop a permanent fiber optic splice prototype that is specially designed to meet the stringent performance and reliability requirements for military and aerospace avionic applications. This permanent fiber optic splice is intended to provide < 1 dB change in insertion loss over a wide range of operating environment, including a temperature change from -65 to 150 C. It will also provide ...

  5. Adaptive Data Fusion and Analysis System

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: N04016

    This Phase II project is aimed at developing an advanced information fusion system applicable to the test and evaluation environment based on the development and applications of advanced concepts of intelligent processing to data fusion and analysis and decision support systems. The highly demanding requirements of the newer and future all-source data fusion and analysis systems for tests onboard ...

  6. Acoustic and Electro-Optic Data Fusion

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N03041

    The goal of this SBIR Program is to enhance the AQS-20A computer-aided classification and identification performance by constructively exploiting acoustic and EO sensor measurements. Benefits from this program will accrue to underwater mine countermeasures due to improved probability of mine identification and reduced probability of false alarm. To this end Areté Associates is collaborating wit ...

  7. A Temperature Sensor Array for the Determination of Sound Velocity

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N03117

    The XSVA is a 24-element vertical array of temperature and conductivity sensors, integrated into a standard sonobuoy, providing continuous estimates of sound velocity over a 72-hour measurement period. In Phase I, Areté Associates demonstrated the key elements of the XSVA array concept. We built and tested a breadboard sensor module, the backbone of the array. This module will make the parameter ...

  8. Automatic Real-time Computer Aided IDentification (ARCAID)

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N03038

    Areté has developed a CAD / CAC / CAI algorithm for 3D range data collected by the AQS-20A EOID sensor. The algorithm, called Automatic Real-time Computer-Aided IDentification (ARCAID) performs detection, MLO/NMLO classification, shape classification, Mine/Non-Mine/Unknown identification (ID) and mine-type ID on EOID data compatible with the AQS-20A EOID sensor system. At the conclusion of th ...

  9. Dissolved Hydrogen Sensor

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N03126

    Areté Associates proposes to develop a novel sensor using thick-film technology to measure variations in the concentration of dissolved hydrogen in the ocean environment. We will employ a unique layout of the classic Wheatstone bridge design that uses screened-palladium metal resistors as the transducer. Palladium absorbs hydrogen gas and changes its electrical resistance in response to the absor ...

  10. Enhanced Understandability and Effectiveness for Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Automatic Logistic Products

    SBC: BCL Technologies            Topic: N03192

    Rapid maintenance allows aircraft to be repaired and available for duty faster, thus improving aircraft availability and helping our fight against terrorism and aiding homeland defense. One method of improving repair time, and subsequently aircraft availability, is to simplify maintenance manuals by converting them to a simpler form of Internationally Standardized English, the Simplified English L ...
