  1. Mid-infrared Fiber Laser Based on Super-Continuum

    SBC: OMNI SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: ST051008

    Infrared counter-measures require a mid-infrared laser operating between 3-5 microns with average powers of tens of watts. Omni Sciences, Inc.'s (OSI's) aims to develop a Mid-Infra-Red FIber Laser (MIRFIL) based on super-continuum (SC) generation that produces a continuous spectrum between 1-5 microns. OSI has demonstrated broadband SC in high-nonlinearity fused silica (HiNL) and ZBLAN fluoride ...

  2. High Density Capacitors for Compact Transmit and Receive Modules

    SBC: BIOENNO TECH, LLC            Topic: N17AT011

    Development of a new generation of high-energy-density capacitors for power conversion/conditioning systems will be beneficial to reduce the size, weight, and cost of resultant transmit and receive (T/R) modules in modern radar and electronic warfare transmitters. Among capacitor technologies available, multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) and polymer-ceramic composite dielectric based capacitors ...

  3. Software 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 groups 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 customi ...

  4. Integrated learning-based and regularization-based super resolution for extreme MWIR image enhancement

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N17AT016

    OKSI and Northwestern University propose to develop a super-resolution (SR) methodology for mid-wave infrared (MWIR) imagery that produces extreme enhancement of low resolution images. Image enhancement of at least 4x is expected using a standard imaging system. OKSI and Northwestern University will also develop a detector-limited imaging system specifically designed to be used with the SR methodo ...

  5. Multi-Sensor Autonomous Hydrothemal Vent Detection System

    SBC: 10dBx LLC            Topic: N17AT028

    Development of a concept of operations is proposed for autonomous hydrothermal vent detection in a single sortie. The concept involves active sonars (forward looking and swath mapping sonars, plus possibly a 1-2 MHz acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) for measuring midwater turbulence) mounted on a commercial AUV equipped with environmental sensors (e.g., CTD, fluorometer, MAPR-ORP). The AUV ...

  6. Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) for Autonomous Teams of UAS Platforms

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N17BT035

    OKSI and Professor Matthew Taylor will develop the Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) command and control tool for teams of UAS platforms. CAMO will incorporate existing databases (e.g., NASA population maps, FAA airspace maps, etc.) as well as real-time data from UAS into a learning-based cognitive control solution that maximizes mission performance while minimizing risk for a t ...

  7. Cyberspace Operations Degraded Exercise & Synthetic Training Architecture (CODESTAR)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N17AT023

    The majority of todays cyberspace training is conducted on dedicated, closed network virtual ranges that provide the basic services and controls necessary to train DoD Cyberspace Mission Forces on their primary tasks and missions [Wells,2015]. These ranges operate independently from the traditional M&S environments used to conduct battlestaff and Fleet synthetic training (FST) that, in the real wo ...

  8. Complex Networks for Computational Urban Resilience (CONCUR)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: ST17C003

    CONCUR develops a computational framework for assessing and characterizing urban environments stability or fragility in response to volatility and stress, identifying specific weaknesses as well as key tipping points which could lead to rapid systemic failure. CONCUR explicitly models urban environments as emergent complex systems, focusing attention on the critical triggers that could lead to rap ...

  9. Electro-Optic Transmissive Scanner

    SBC: ULTIMARA INC.            Topic: N17AT001

    The goal of this program is to develop and construct a thin, light weight, low power, large aperture, electro-optic (EO) transmissive scanner that utilizes electro-optically active nanomaterial structures, suitable for UAVs platform. The nano-material beam-steering technology aperture system offers an ultra-thin Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) to fit on UAV;s airframe and achieve ultrafast and wide ...

  10. Adaptive Optics controlled nonlinear propagation of USLP

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N17AT024

    Filamentation of ultra-short laser pulse propagation in non-linear media offers significant potentials allowing to address numerous problems in military and commercial sectors. However, practical implementation of this requires an ability to control the USLP at its propagation through inhomogeneous media, like turbulent atmosphere. On the basis of our approach for combating turbulence effects on p ...
