  2. Large N ASW False Alarm Reduction

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Large N ASW problem can be summarized as pervasive short-range sensors with limited communication capabilities. The driving questions are how are false alarms controlled-not necessarily from an individual sensor node, but from the overallfield-performance of individual sensor nodes, the amount of information and frequency of communication. From its inception, distributed detection has produc ...

  3. Logistic Fuel Sulfur Removal System for Shipboard Fuel Cell Applications

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Future shipboard operations can beneficially use fuel cells operating on logistic fuels. However, these fuels have a high level of sulfur that needs to be removed before they can be used as a feedstock for fuel cell systems. Altex, a small businessentity, and Pennsylvania State University (PSU), a research organization, have teamed up under this STTR program to develop the innovative Logistic Fu ...

  4. Marine Mammal Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I STTR proposal is to quantify the necessary hardware and processing requirements to enable a ship-based radar system to automatically detect and track whales on the ocean surface at distances of 5 kilometers or more for the purposeof collision avoidance. Long standoff detection and tracking is crucial to collision avoidance since large ships, such as commercial oil tankers, ...

  5. Advanced EO sensor for multi-mission USN/USMC UAVs

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N/A

    The program objective is to develop and evaluate a prototype spectral polarimeter that could be used as an ISR sensor package on organic UAVs. The sensor employs advanced, visible-band technology to support littoral-zone warfare mission products, such asoceanographic characterization in VSW, including the surf; detection and characterization of stealthy or intrinsically low-contrast targets such ...

  6. Transport of Underwater Sensor Data

    SBC: BENTHOS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Undersea sensors require means of transporting data to an end-user. Acoustic modem networks are being developed for this purpose, but they are limited by battery power, network priorities, and requirements for clandestine operations. We propose a systemsapproach to reducing the impact on the network of moving large volumes of data, using both low rate and high rate acoustic telemetry, combined w ...

  7. Real-time Multimedia Communications in Highly Mobile Networks.

    SBC: Brandes Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Improved networking capabilities for unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) will be a compelling necessity for a wide range of 21st century applications, both military and commercial. To make these applications successful, two main technical challenges must beaddressed: (1) dynamic, highly mobile network technologies to provide reliable, time-critical exchange of the network's media, and (2) information ma ...

  8. A Portable, Modular Process for Sulfur Removal and Disposal in Naval Fuel Cell System

    SBC: Cal Nova Tech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The petroleum refining industry tends to utilize large sulfur removal units, which are permanently installed and unable to meet the demands of a versatile industry. Cal Nova Tech has developed a sulfur-removal concept that utilizes portable, modularcomponents that can be quickly assembled in a variety of ways. These units are especially effective in confined areas, such as those found onboard Na ...

  9. Sensors and Methods to Handle UAV

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) play an increasingly important role in many military scenarios. For the Navy to incorporate these vehicles into its critical missions, there has to be an efficient protocol to handle them on the decks of aircraft carriers.Current handling approaches and procedures have substantial limitations. For example, GPS-based taxiing via pre-set coordinates assumes that the a ...
