  1. Adaptive Optics for Nonlinear Atmospheric Propagation of Laser Pulses

    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 ...

  2. Improved High-Frequency Bottom Loss Characterization

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N17AT026

    We propose development of an improved bottom database suitable for use in the frequency range of 1-10 kHz. Measured transmission loss (TL) and reverberation level (RL) will be jointly processed in building the database. The influence of the rough sea surface, rough seafloor, as well as subbottom heterogeneity will be accounted for during database generation. The rough sea surface will be character ...

  3. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...

  4. High Performance Energetic Propellant Ingredient Process Research and Development

    SBC: Nalas Engineering Services Inc            Topic: N16AT021

    CL-20 is the most powerful conventional explosive known, but its high cost has limited its adoption in a range of potential applications. Par of the challenge in making these materials is the complexity of the reaction used to prepare the polycyclic cage. The complexity of this reaction makes it difficult to have insight into the reaction and to improve it. Additionally, several of the intermediat ...

  5. Further Experimental Validation of a Fluid-Structure-Material Interaction (FSMI) Modeling and Simulation Toolset

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT025

    ATA Engineering, Inc. (ATA), partnered with a nonprofit research institution, CUBRC, Inc., (CUBRC), proposes a Phase II STTR project to further develop and continue validating a novel multiphysics simulation technology. The project team will implement the technology in a fluid-structure-material interaction (FSMI) software toolset that incorporates mutual interactions between aerodynamics and stru ...

  6. Resilient Control Electronics

    SBC: Iris Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA17T003

    As the orbital space around the earth gets more and more crowded with civilian and military reconnaissance, weather, tracking, communication, and navigation satellites - civilian and military users become increasingly dependent on the services provided by these spacecraft. This situation increases the possibility of offense actions against some or all of these spacecraft. The possibility calls for ...

  7. Dim Target Extraction and Conjoint Tracking (DTECT) Enhancements for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA12T004

    Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) platforms observe challenging threat and scene phenomenology. Toyon Research Corporation developed an image processing framework for clutter estimation/suppression and track-before-detect to jointly detect and track targets. The Target Extraction and Conjoint Tracking application, developed under initial Phase II funding and demonstrated using real-world data so ...

  8. Nanocomposite Scandate Tungsten Powder for High Current Density and Long Life Thermionic Cathodes

    SBC: Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N15AT010

    Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. (VPE), in collaboration with the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), proposes to develop and quantitatively verify a large scale production process for scandate tungsten nanocomposite powder to be used in high current density and long life cathodes during the Phase II effort. The plan for implementation of the large scale production process at VPE with powd ...

  9. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  10. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with MGH Voice Center and Altec, Inc., application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience of our partner, MGH (including resea ...
