  1. Foveated Video Object Detection

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N14AT008

    Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. On the other hand, object detection continues to be one of the hot areas of computer vision, and it attests both to the fundamental importance of the problem and the fact that existing state-of-the-art algorithms are still shy of performing well in practice. We propose to utilizes human vision modeling of a fovea ...

  2. Object Cueing Using Biomimetic Approaches to Visual Information Processing

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N14AT008

    Understanding imagery from unmanned automated systems in a timely fashion requires support systems for end users that can filter and preprocess massive data via complex vision and understanding. A new computer system that mimics both the bottom-up biological and top-down cognitive processes of the human visual system will provide breakthrough decision support for immediate imagery analysis. We pro ...

  3. Prediction of Remaining Useful Life of Rotorcraft Structures with a Fiber-Optic-Based Sensing System and a Unified Damage Mechanism-Based Model

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: N14AT002

    IFOS proposes to develop a fiber-optic-based sensing system and a unified damage mechanism model utilizing an integrated fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor system for prediction of remaining useful life of rotorcraft structures. The proposed new rotorcraft damage modeling technique makes it possible to incorporate temperature and acoustic emission (AE) measurements with load tracking techniques for ...

  4. Technologies for the Suppression of Combustion Instability or Screech

    SBC: Peschel, William P            Topic: N14AT004

    Conduct comprehensive experimental tests using an existing microwave generated plasma igniter (M/W Igniter) that provides a continuously stabilized heat release source to suppress augmentor combustion instability or screech and to reduce the lean blowout (LBO) and light-off (LO) limits in modern/advanced or legacy augmentor flameholders. The test flow environments will include known combustion tes ...

  10. Compact Megavolt Switch Utilizing Novel Switching Mediums

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N14AT018

    A rugged, laser-free design of electrically controlled MV-class, ns-sub-ns switch is proposed to develop in Phase I. The novel switch design is based on combination of Drift Step Recovery Diode, and inverse-switchable dynistor used as a closing circuit and correspondingly matched charging/discharging resonant pulsed circuitry. The approach is capable of generating of fraction of MV pulses at up to ...
