  4. Uncued Faint Object Detection in LEOand GEO

    SBC: Pacific Defense Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF121009

    ABSTRACT: This research plans to use existing MSSS sensors to investigate methods to detect and track faint objects (greater than or equal to 14th visual magnitude) in any orbit around the Earth using ground-based electro-optics sensors, without prior knowledge of the object's orbit. The basic technique is to image part of the sky with a wide field-of-view detector. Processing algorithms wil ...

  5. Feature Identification from Unresolved Electro-optical Data

    SBC: Pacific Defense Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF121010

    ABSTRACT: Space situational awareness is often limited by the ability of sensors to produce resolved data on space objects. Large objects cannot be resolved with small low-cost telescopes; objects in geo-synchronous orbit are too remote to be resolved. The best hope of ending these limitations is to make it possible to determine important features of space objects from unresolved data, typically ...

  7. RPA Simulated Operational Communications and Coordination Integration for Aircrew Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: OSD11CR3

    Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPAs) are becoming increasingly popular and prevalent in the military domain. The ability to train RPA crews is a significant challenge facing the community. A particularly vexing part of this problem is training the members of the crew to function as a team. RPA crews must effectively interact with stakeholders who are located around the world. Unfortunately, RPA cr ...
