  1. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T006

    The first sentinel of ABL’s present target acquisition suite is a passive infrared search and track sensor of 1970s vintage, which we propose replacing with HyPAWS. HyPAWS is a low-cost passive wide-field of view staring sensor. Several such units suffice to provide full 360-degree view coverage. Leveraging revolutionary sensing techniques in ongoing development, HyPAWS offers advanced detect ...

  2. Acoustic Pattern Recognition for Security Breaching Noise Detection

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: N06T036

    A proposed acoustic pattern recognition system will be based around an array of acoustic sensors to allow localization of sound events and cancellation of background noise. The number of sensors could be adjusted to vary the coverage area depending on the site. The measured signals will provide the input to a sophisticated signal processing algorithm that will separate the acoustic signals into ...

  3. ADAPT: Allocation of Dynamic Attention across People & Teams

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T003

    Effective task management is a critical component of mission success. As warfighters are given more information to monitor, however, their ability to detect and attend to critical information and tasks is stressed. An automatic task manager is needed to help ensure that responses to events occur in a timely manner. The foundation of such a tool is an accurate model of human dynamic attention. Many ...

  4. Adaptive camera to display mappings using computer vision

    SBC: POLAR RAIN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The video surveillance industry is experiencing dramatic change with the move from analog to digital video. Command centers need to have coordinated viewing of multiple camera feeds at one time, and the ability to switch automatically between feeds and display relevant patterns. Conventional security control rooms include a bank of monitors connected through a switch to an array of security camera ...

  5. Advanced Composite Sandwich Panel Architecture for Improved Performance at Reduced Weight and Cost

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N06T017

    The Navy is currently developing advanced surface combatants like DD(X), LPD-17, LCS and CVX to meet challenges of the 21st century. The desire to reduce maintenance cost and weight makes the use of composite structures very attractive, but cost of manufacturing large composite structures remains a significant technology barrier. KaZaK and UMass Lowell propose to develop pultrusion technology of b ...

  6. Advanced Radar Data Fusion

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: MDA06T003

    The TSC team proposes to develop a new generalized Space-Time Adaptive Processing (Generalized STAP) algorithm that discriminates among classes of scatterers. The new generalized formalism is applied to the problem of 3D ISAR imaging of the reentry vehicle (RV) or another object in the ballistic missile threat complex that suppresses radar dipole clutter, using multiple ground-based radars operat ...

  7. Advanced Robotic Detection of Chemical Agents, Toxic Industrial Gases, and IEDs for Force Health Protection.

    SBC: IONFINITY, LLC            Topic: A06T029

    We propose to develop a novel chemical agent sensor through a joint collaborative effort between IonFinity, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Imaginative Technologies. This chemical sensor consists of 1) a new and powerful detector called a Differential Mobility Spectrometer which has been developed at Imaginative Technologies by team member Dr. Gary Eiceman, and 2) a novel “soft-ionization” ...

  8. Advanced Robotic Detection of Chemical/Biological Agents, Toxic Industrial Gases, and IEDs for Force Health Protection.

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T029

    The recent rise in asymmetric warfare and terrorism has brought about an increased threat from biological and chemical weapons. Their potential lethality and their indiscriminate nature make them natural choices for use as a terror weapon. Quick, reliable, and safe detection of these agents is imperative. The Energid team proposes a novel teleoperated robotic system for the rapid detection of ch ...

  9. Advanced System of Systems Design Capability

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: N06T016

    Successful advanced Naval ship design must be based on integrating multiple cross-functional systems. Future Naval systems will require innovation and a systematic integration in order to achieve increasingly demanding mission profiles in a cost effective manner. Since a large amount of the design cost (up to 80%) is locked during the conceptual phase, it is important to include both the traditi ...

  10. A High Current Microfabricated Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array with Ballasting

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    High current density carbon nanotube-based field emission arrays with uniform emission will be developed under this program. Working in conjunction with MIT, microfabrication techniques will be used to produce high density arrays of CNT emitters on substrates which incorporate feedback to ensure uniformity of emission between emitters. The feedback techniques employed will minimize thermal effec ...
