  1. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheic Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    Accurate, high resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and ocean surface wind fields within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase II effort will build on the Phase I project successes to realize an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar (AWRAP) capable of providing these winds with up to 15-meter vertical re ...

  3. Operational Scanning Radar Altimeter for Real-Time Reporting of Directional Ocean Wave Spectra

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: 8317

    This Phase II SBIR project focuses on the development of an operational Scanning Radar Altimeter (SRA) intended for airborne measurement of directional ocean wave spectra. The proposed innovation is a novel solid-state digital beamforming radar, designed to replace the aging prototype SRA currently operated by NOAA. The proposed SRA will employ a 10 W solid-state transmitter and a pulse compress ...

  8. WorkRITE

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF05066

    Military operations are transitioning from a platform-centric approach to a network-centric architecture. Coupled with advances in sensor technology, this provides unprecedented amounts of information. At the same time, ops tempo is increasing. This presents challenges in the AOC and to the DTC in particular. The DTC is characterized by unpredictable injections of high priority tasks into a dynami ...

  9. The Resource for Applied Cognitive Engineering and Systems Engineering- (TRACE-SE)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF05071

    Future C4ISR capabilities must provide warfighters with the abilities to clearly and comprehensively understand the battlespace and quickly decide on appropriate COA. Future systems must account for cognitive capabilities and limitations of users, giving warfighters the ability to “leverage asymmetric advantages”. Better and faster decision making by warfighters is the ultimate goal; develop ...

  10. Performance Effects Related to FORce-Cueing Manipulation- (PERFORM)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF05078

    The goal of the PERFORM Phase II effort is to develop a predictive model-based tool, and associated metrics, to assess the impact of simulator fidelity on training effectiveness. To achieve this goal, Aptima will deliver three primary products. First, we will deliver the PERFORM tool with associated functions and algorithms. Aptima will base the PERFORM tool on an updated categorization of the ...
