  1. Advanced Waveform Design and Signal Processing

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: A13055

    A novel signal/waveform model and signal processing algorithm suite that enhances radar systems performance, in the presence of noise and high clutter environments, and its associated discrimination capabilities is proposed. The algorithm allows for extraction of target information in range, azimuth and elevation angles while achieving very fine resolution and high accuracy. Target information at ...

  2. Novel Standoff Detection of Material Damage Precursors for Structural Health Monitoring and Prediction

    SBC: PNTS INCORPORATED            Topic: A13016

    Because of the overwhelming migration to composites, particularly exotic thermoset materials from the bismaleimide (BMI) family, the PNTS team is focusing its work on this topic on composite structures. The team's high level approach will be to demonstrate an innovative and practical design using dielectric spectroscopy at millimeter wave through terahertz frequencies that will provide compos ...

  3. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Millimeter-wave RADAR imaging holds significant promise for many applications from rotorcraft DVE mitigation to standoff security screening. A key challenge of this imaging modality, however, has been the implementation of an effective method for creating an image without relying on either mechanical scanning or expensive, high SWAP phased array techniques. Herein, we present a concept for creat ...

  4. Non-Lethal Munitions for Defeating Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A13058

    Proposed research will address the phenomenology and develop a technical concept of buried IED defeat through the creation of low-frequency electromagnetic fields in the ground by the LF current injection. The technical concept will be based on creating pulsed low-frequency currents in the ground layer using either explosive or capacitor driven pulsed current source and then employing the key prin ...

  5. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    New enhancements to mobile computers including smaller sensors, displays and powerful processors have made them much more attractive for the battlefield, not only as wearable systems for soldiers, but also unattended ground sensors a warfighter can leave behind for situational awareness. Unfortunately, while the technologies for hands-free interfacing have improved greatly, the challenge of limiti ...

  6. Unified Flow Solver for transient high altitude events with mixed continuum and rarefied flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A13005

    CFDRC proposes to develop a computational tool for transient, high-altitude events with mixed continuum and free molecular flow regimes. The proposed technology builds upon the Unified Flow Solver (UFS) previously developed by CFDRC, which will be leveraged with several new features for transient chemically reacting two-phase, gas-particle flows interacting with multiple bodies in relative motion ...

  7. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  10. Low-Cost CFD-Based Analysis for Surface Mesh Interrogation and Refinement

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A13004

    Accurate flow calculation is crucial to the development and support of air platforms, and CFD has been successful at predicting aerodynamic performance for a variety of flows. The accuracy of CFD is governed by the quality of the surface mesh, and much work has been undertaken to automatically generate surface grids from CAD. Unfortunately, quality is quantified in terms of conformance to the surf ...
