  1. Novel Vector Survaillance Trap for Flying Insects

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP12007

    Civilian and military organizations throughout the world perform surveillance to combat vector-borne disease. Of particular concern to the U.S. military are mosquito genera Anopheles, Aedes and Culex, which are important vectors for malaria, dengue and West Nile virus respectively, and sand fly genera Phlebotomus and Lutzomyia, both vectors for leishmaniasis. The trap most commonly used for by U.S ...

  2. LL-HAMMER: Long Lived Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131092

    ABSTRACT: Military missions increasingly rely on satellites for surveillance, communication, and navigation. While performing these mission-critical tasks, satellites must respond quickly to new enemy threats and changing mission objectives. Under prior AFRL SBIR awards, SIFT and TRACLabs have developed the Highly Autonomous Mission Manager for Event Response (HAMMER) to provide on-board auto ...

  3. Ear Protection Validation System

    SBC: Benson Medical Instruments Company            Topic: DHP12009

    This proposal contains the description for a hearing protection device (HPD) fit-test instrument, the CCA-200fit. The CCA-200fit has the capability to determine if an individual is receiving effective noise protection from an HPD. The CCA-200fit also has training capabilities via a display, audio, and a touchscreen which will allow it to provide instruction, feedback, and results to the individual ...

  4. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  5. Physically customized DEFORMOTION models for electro-optic sensor data

    SBC: Vintinura Imaging, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: In the field of computer vision, extraction of features from sensor data (EO/IR) is critical for inference tasks including target object detection, recognition, classification, segmentation and tracking. The objective of this proposal is to propose computation deformotion models that incorporate various physical properties of scene objects, particularly passenger vehicles. Layered defor ...

  6. Innovations in Physical Modeling and Statistical Exploitation of Electromagnetic Target Signatures

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...

  7. Intra-Subaperture Adaptive Optical (ISAO) System

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...

  8. Diode Laser Systems for Space-Based Cold Atom Clocks

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: AF103079

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop extremely compact and rugged laser systems for emerging cold-atom-based sensors of time, gravity, and inertial forces. This phase II will provide complete and disruptive cold-atom laser / electro-optic control systems. We will design and build distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser diodes with 400 mW output power. We will incorporate these lasers into very com ...

  9. Electric-field Instrument for CubeSats

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF112083

    ABSTRACT: The ionosphere has significant effects on DoD radio systems. The Air Force needs electric field measurements in order to nowcast and forecast ionospheric behavior. SBIR Topic AF112-083"Electric Field Instrument for Cube- or Nano-sized Satellites"called for the development of"a cubesat- or nanosat-scale Direct Current Electrical Field instrument for measuring high precision electric fiel ...

  10. High-Temperature Microsample Testing System

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF112126

    ABSTRACT: A better understanding of the thermo-mechanical response, characteristics and properties of materials can lead to improved device performance as well as facilitate the design of new devices and materials for various applications. Although there has been significant progress in the development of micro/nanomechanical testing techniques and tools over the last decade, commercially availab ...
