  1. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA18A001

    The multidisciplinary area of GEOINT is changing and becoming more complex. A major driver of innovation in GEOINT collection and processing is artificial intelligence (AI). AI is being leveraged to help accomplish spatial analysis, change detection, and image or video triage tasks where filtering objects of interest from large volumes of data is critical. NGA is confronting the changing GEOINT l ...

  2. Optimization of Fatigue Test Signal Compression Using The Wavelet Transform

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18BT029

    ATA Engineering has developed a wavelet-based damage squeezing methodology for generating optimally compressed fatigue test signals that produce an equivalent amount of fatigue damage in a predictably reduced amount of time compared to the baseline (uncompressed) signals. Fatigue-critical signal characteristics (e.g., magnitude, phase, frequency, and sequencing relationships) are identified in the ...

  3. Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) of Missile Launcher Ablatives

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: N18AT011

    MK-41 VLS exhaust paths are lined with ablative insulation that chars and ablates with each missile firing. There is no way to inspect, in-situ, chemical and physical changes to the ablatives. Such measurements are complicated because ablative materials: vary with location, are low density, and degrade non-linearly with firings.Failure of VLS insulation is not an option – but the usage life of t ...

  4. Triton™: Active Imaging through Fog

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT021

    Active imaging systems are used in degraded visual environments, like those found in marine fog and other areas with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like rain, smoke and dust. These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of new eyesafe, hybrid fiber-bulk laser technology capable of high pulse energy at high repetition rate to ...

  5. Innovations in Designing Damage Tolerant Rotorcraft Components by Interface Tailoring

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N19AT003

    The performance of a composite material is heavily influenced by the strength and toughness of the interlaminar region, which is the resin rich area between the plies of a fiber reinforced composite.  The interlaminar region generally provides a direct path for crack propagation since no continuous reinforcement is present and is often the cause of failure in materials subjected to cyclic loadin ...

  6. Comprehensive Surf Zone Modeling Tool

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT010

    The objective of this project is to advance the capabilities of the Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis (COBRA) system by creating a Surf Zone Modelling Tool (SZT) that can create realistic synthetic imagery of the surf zone (SZ). Through the use of this synthetic imagery the COBRA Program will be enabled to inform concept of operations (CONOPS) in unfamiliar environments as well as mo ...

  7. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  8. Twiner Ph II

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N18AT019

    Human interaction in cyberspace leaves indicators in the three layers that define cyberspace: persona, logical and physical. The proposed effort seeks to develop algorithms and software to integrate data and context across all three layers, “intertwining” data to create a more holistic and complete picture of cyber activity. Such an integrated perspective will allow cyber professionals to bett ...

  9. Innovative Processing Techniques for Additive Manufacture of 7000 Series Aluminum Alloy Components

    SBC: SENSIGMA LLC            Topic: N18AT005

    Naval aircraft components are routinely made of 7000 series aluminum alloys due to their strength, weight and fatigue properties. Present Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes fall short of producing 7000 series Al alloys successfully due to lack of porosity, and thermal and composition control. In-situ methods implemented to date largely only yield information about the component surface and othe ...

  10. Tools for Implementing Speech Agents in Crew Resource Management Training Systems

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: N17AT010

    Crew resource management training systems are often constrained by the high cost and lack of flexibility in coordinating a large group of human role players for part-task training. Motivated by the recent maturation of the speech synthesis and recognition technologies, speech-enabled crew role-player agents are being introduced to address these limitations. However, difficulties remain in customiz ...
