  1. 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 ...

  2. Intuitive Information Fusion and Visualization

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD12LD4

    Traditional Information Fusions (IF) systems need to be expanded to encompass a decision support system (DSS) role that enables analysts and commander to manage the volume and heterogeneity of sensor data, including the textual"soft"data descriptive of the social cultural landscape characteristics of contemporary missions. To achieve these improvements, SoarTech, supported by NCSU, will develop Se ...

  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. Urban Computer Generated Forces (CGF) Models

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: A13056

    Soar Technology, Inc. (SoarTech) proposes to integrate detailed models of cultural daily activities and patterns of life into simulations of synthetic characters inhabiting, and of vehicular traffic moving in, an urban environment. SoarTech will demonstrate technical feasibility of the approach by integrating these models into the Army's OneSAF in a way that requires minimal resource utilizat ...

  6. 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 ...

  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 ...

  8. Offshore Wind Energy Resource Siting

    SBC: Sealandaire Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 911SG

    Over the last decade, it has been noted that offshore wind energy resource development could prove extensively valuable in many areas of our nation’s growth, including continued diversification of our energy supply, more options for cost-competitive electricity in coastal and Great Lakes regions, and economical stimulation through new and lasting infrastructure development. The challenges associ ...

  9. Functional Allocation Trades Between Hardware and Software


    Design is the act of generating information that is used to make decisions or produce a product. Modern products are moving away from segregated disjointed systems and towards interdependent systems that utilize shared hardware and software resources (e.g. zonal power distribution, ethernet based controls, shared racks and mounts to facilitate advanced outfitting, etc.). Determining the appropri ...

  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 ...
