  2. Miniature Optical Guidance & Navigation

    SBC: Near Earth Autonomy, Inc.            Topic: SB151006

    Before beyond line-of-sight UAV operations can be permitted, three key requirements must be met.UAVs must be capable of safe flight without relying on a remote operator; they must be able to avoid static and moving obstacles; and must be able to guarantee accurate navigation in the absence of GPS.We propose a 24-month program to develop a family of miniature navigation and guidance solutions that ...

  3. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    Welding of HPS70W is well understood when using submerged arc welding (SAW) and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) techniques. A Welding Advisory Group (WAG) which consisted of technical advisors from the Navy, AISI, and FHWA, major filler metal manufacturers, and steel producers determined the guidelines for welding HPS70W. As a result, comprehensive guidelines and welding procedures exist for SAW ...

  4. Cooperative Autonomous Tunnel Mapping

    SBC: Near Earth Autonomy, Inc.            Topic: OSD12AU4

    While unmanned air vehicles are starting to operate in complex urban and indoor environments, many challenges still remain. In the proposed project we will develop a team of flying robots that can explore and map environments such as networks of underground tunnels. We will address three key challenges: First, the tunnel network topology is unknown and will have to be discovered incrementally by t ...

  6. GENNET: Advanced System for Synthesis of High Fidelity Social Networks to support SHIELD

    SBC: CARLEY TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB112004

    Our objective is to provide a semi-automated system to generate and verify scalable, high fidelity, multi-dimensional, social networks with realistic distributional, temporal and spatial characteristics as networks and as event sequences. This enables the user to generate networks varying in size, node attributes, geo-temporal characteristics, consistency with other networks, and reflection of kno ...

  7. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    This proposal leverages our current DOT-funded SBIR Phase II project developing software to assist truck drivers and companies to fatigue optimize driver scheduling and route planning. This project will build a set of web-services specially designed to provide objective quantitative feedback to truck drivers, dispatchers, and safety managers about fatigue from fatigue stressors common in trucking ...

  8. Fundamental Interactions Generating Heterogeneous Teams including Robots (FIGHT-R)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB062009

    Fully autonomous, taskable robots for use in unconstrained environments are still a dream rather than a reality because of a host of problems, including capabilities of existing sensors, effectors, and control/planning software. Indeed, concepts of operations for robot use are tending toward robots collaborating directly with humans, in relationships similar to bomb squad dogs. Fortunately, enough ...

  9. Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: IRIMSENS, LLC            Topic: SB062015

    Development of new short-wave infrared imaging sensors with signal processing electronics on the same substrate is critical for a number of military and commercial applications. The objective of this research is to develop a new generation of Ge-on-Si p-n heterojunction photodiodes that will culminate in a demonstration of a 64 x 64-pixel infrared imaging array. These photodiodes, whose feas ...

  10. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...
