  3. In-Flight Laser Sensor for Measurement of Acoustic Self-Radiation

    SBC: Phase Coherence, Inc.            Topic: A14AT001

    We propose a system that utilizes an on-board laser to measure the acoustic radiation emitted by an air platform. Its immediate advantages are access to in/above-horizon acoustic radiation, good discrimination against ground reflections, high signal compared to background noise, and, at the same time, precise synchronization with helicopter operating state and rotor blade position.The technique is ...

  4. Robust Terrain-Adaptive Vehicle Planning and Control

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A14AT018

    Autonomous or teleoperated navigation of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) is difficult even in benign environments due to challenges associated with perception, decision making, and human-machine interaction, among others. In environments with rough, sloped, slippery, and/or deformable terrain, the difficulty of the navigation problem increases dramatically. In this effort, Quantum Signal, LLC, Un ...
