  3. Speech Synthesis for Distance Cueing in Audio Displays

    SBC: SENSIMETRICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T002

    The work proposed in this Phase II STTR project is aimed at developing (1) a prototype speech synthesizer capable of manipulating the vocal effort of speech for use in text-to-speech synthesis, and (2) a prototype real-time system dedicated to modifying the apparent vocal effort of an arbitrary speech signal input. These two technical objectives will be achieved by (1) thorough acoustic analysis o ...

  4. Advanced Antenna Pattern Prediction Software


    The present text proposes development of a software infrastructure for the prediction of antenna patterns on and around aircraft, for frequencies throughout the electromagnetic spectrum - including UHF through L bands as well as arbitrarily high frequencies - and applicable to aircraft which, like those designed for low observability, contain non perfectly conducting surface materials. Relying on ...

  6. Ultrahydrophobic Coatings

    SBC: Seashell Technology LLC            Topic: AF05T014

    The development of ultrahydrophobic coatings that are safe, economic,and applicable to a variety of different materials will result in significant savings due to the prevention of any water-caused damage such as corrosion and reduced maintenance requirements. Recent studies of naturally occuring ultrahydrophobic properties in plants have identified the so-called "Lotus Effect", where super-water r ...

  7. Cooperative Decision and Control with Intermittent Asynchronous Communication

    SBC: NASCENT TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: AF05T011

    This proposal describes the development of an on-board planning module for coordinated search and tracking (CSAT) using low-cost (~50 lb class) UAVs. The NTC/MIT Phase I CSAT system, based on Robust Distributed Task Assignment (RDTA), has been tested in a unique communication emulation environment, which validated that RDTA and associated consensus management approaches work in the face of realis ...

  8. Improved Kinetic Models for High Speed Combustion Simulation

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: OSD05T002

    Scramjet propulsion has the potential to power high Mach number flight without the need to carry its own oxidizer like a rocket, thus significantly reducing vehicle flight weight. Numerical simulations will play an increasingly important role in the development of scramjet engines. Hydrocarbon fuels are advantageous for scramjet propulsion because of their higher energy density and ease of transpo ...

  9. High Spatial and Temporal Resolution Velocimetry Measurements for Microfluidic Devices

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF04T024

    Microscale and nanoscale fluid engineering is an emergent technology with applications in many areas including micro-gas turbine engines, space propulsion, biotechnology, and materials processing. Uncertainties in the near-wall velocity flow and in the exact nature of the fluid-solid boundary condition become particularly important for microengineering applications where careful control of flow r ...
