  2. High-current Field Emitter Arrays for Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    CCR will team with SRI International to develop high current field emission arrays for high power RF source. The Phase I program will utilize a combination of analytical calculation, computer simulation, and experimental verification to study various approaches and determine their effectiveness in achieving the program goals. The technical objective of the Phase I program will be to develop field ...

  3. Development of Amorphous Alloy Coatings and the Application Technology for Aircraft Protection

    SBC: PLASMA TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF06T023

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I objective is twofold. During both depot and field repair operations the coating system is removed using mechanical and chemical stripping methods that result in removal of some of the metallic cladding. The removal of the cladding during paint stripping makes the underlying high strength aluminum alloy more prone to corrosion. Thus, the fi ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: FLUOROCHEM, INC.            Topic: AF06T007

    Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. One major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of hydrochloric acid (HCl) as a combustion product and can cause environmental probl ...

  6. Innovative Selective Nanocatalysts in Hydrocarbon RBCC Systems

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF06T019

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Purdue University (PU) propose to synthesize, characterize, and investigate the efficiency, reactivity, and selectivity of new nanocatalysts in hydrocarbon fuel liquid for RBCC applications. The nanocatalysts will have higher surface area/volume compared to conventional microcatalysts and films, thereby leading to faster reaction rates. Decreased coking will occur ...

  7. Real-Time Resource Optimization of a UAV Network for Continuous Video Tracking

    SBC: Parietal Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF06T020

    Networks of UAV’s equipped with video sensors promise an affordable capability to keep track of moving ground targets of military interest in an urban environment in the presence of target occlusion, clutter, and other background traffic. But maintaining continuous track on multiple targets that move in and out of the field of view of any single UAV’s sensor poses a significant problem of cont ...

  8. Aided Navigation: Theory and Applications for Sensors and Architectures

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF06T032

    The coupling of GPS and INS is often characterized as loose, tight, or ultra-tight depending on the nature of the GPS input to the navigation filter. Thus, considering the challenge of precision navigation without GPS, this project will test and validate the coupling of sensor (EO, IR) information such as ego-motion and position updates similar to the coupling of a GPS and INS system. This proje ...

  9. Image-based Tracking and Resource Allocation Algorithms for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF06T020

    We propose to develop advanced algorithms and software to collaboratively track people and vehicles in an urban environment using video imagery (visible, IR) from a network of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The tracking and data fusion architecture will have one fusion node in a surveillance region, with a number of UAVs associated with the fusion node. We propose the multiple hypotheses trackin ...

  10. Security Escorts for Not-Yet-Trusted Software

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP2

    With the rapid release of new software applications, builds and patches for existing applications, and increased mobility of software across networks, more of our systems will run software applications that may not have a full pedigree of evaluation and testing to ensure that they are free from exploits and malware. Additionally, any previous certifications are invalidated at the first update. H ...
