  1. Multiple Digital Camera Mount with FMC

    SBC: Aerial Imaging Solutions            Topic: 817

    NOAA uses large-format aerial film cameras to collect data for monitoring marine mammal populations protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the U.S. Endangered Species Act. Historically, the major users of these cameras have been the military and government agencies. As these users move to newer technology, manufacturers are ending the production of aerial films and camera p ...

  2. Turbine Inlet Gas Temperature Measurement System

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF083260

    The Air Force is seeking new technology that will provide the means to accurately measure and monitor turbine inlet gas temperature in gas turbine engines, particularly in advanced engines operating at very high temperatures (>3,100 degree F). In Phase I of this program, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. demonstrated that turbine inlet gas temperature can be determined from non-intrusive measurements ...

  3. Diffusion Geometry Based Nonlinear Methods for Hyperspectral Change Detection

    SBC: Plain Sight Systems Inc            Topic: AF08BT24

    We propose a suite of nonlinear image processing algorithms derived from the analysis of the underlying diffusion geometry of a collection of hyperspectral images of interest. These tools enable the comparison of spatio-spectral features of hyperspectral images acquired under different conditions, for the purposes of target detection, change detection and anomaly assessment. This methodology also ...

  4. Monolithic InfraRed pixel structures enabled by Thyristor-HFET EO logic

    SBC: ODIS , Inc.            Topic: AF083207

    IR imagers currently require hybrid read-out integrated circuits (ROIC’s)and additional separate AD converters (ADC) to provide transmittable data formats to digital signal processors (DSP’s). The DSP is currently dominated exclusively by CMOS technology as the only high density low power technology. New capabilities for IR imaging based on GaAs are being developed which have the potential fo ...

  5. Optoelectronic directional couplers for optical switching fabrics

    SBC: ODIS , Inc.            Topic: AF083209

    Optical switching fabrics describe arrays of interconnected optical switches that enable input signals to be directed to output ports with optimal flexibility. Such arrays avoid the use of OE conversions and circuit-switched connections by allowing the optical data stream to pass through the fabric in its original form. As such, the fabric requires very dense, low loss switches with high speed rec ...

  6. Micro-ignition Components for Heavy Fuel Engines

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: OSD08UM3

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI), through a DoD Phase I SBIR, has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of catalytic glow plugs as a component enabling heavy fuels in small, high power density engines for unmanned aerial/naval/ground power systems (UAS, UMS, and UGS) and proposes continuing the success with Phase II focused on optimization, design and demonstration of an improved catalytic glo ...

  7. Advanced Visualization Methods for Mission Planning, Course of Action (COA) Evaluation and After Action Review (AAR).

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: AF083024

    Sonalysts and Boeing will develop, conduct and demonstrate a high-fidelity 3D visualization environment for Course of Action (COA) planning, analysis, rehearsal, and AAR prototype system (COARVET) in support of Air Force mission planning operations. During Phase I of this topic, Sonalysts and Boeing developed a feasible concept, a functional design specification, and a proof-of-concept COARVET app ...

  8. Gaming for Training and Rehearsal for Fifth Generation Fighter Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs)

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: AF083025

    The Phase II effort will create a gaming environment for the training, rehearsing, and exercising of fifth-generation fighter tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). The Team, Sonalysts as prime with Aptima, Inc. and Rickard Consulting Group as subcontractors, will innovatively apply our commercial game engine, coupled with advanced human engineering, human performance, training system develo ...

  9. Advanced Lithium Ion Batteries for Space-based Applications

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF083200

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing advanced chemistries that allow batteries to operate safely at increased power density via improved discharge rate; higher energy density via improved battery packaging and improved coating of internal components(cathode and anode material); increased cycle life and depth-of-discharge via improved material stability; ex ...

  10. High Frequency Optoelectronc Oscillator

    SBC: OPEL            Topic: AF05043

    Low phase noise oscillators are core components for communications and radars. System timing jitter is fundamentally important for digital systems and phase noise is the figure of merit for RF systems. For multi-GB/s clocks, optoelectronic oscillators using optical delay for the clock period, appear to have significant advantages. The phase noise may be minimized because the delay variability li ...
