  1. Persistent Maritime Target Tracking Using Automated Target Fingerprinting and Discrimination

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N141016

    The proposed Phase 2 technical effort will leverage the success of the Phase 1 effort and develop and extensively test robust signal processing techniques that consistently extract target features over a large range of operating conditions using recently collected radar data from a Navy field test. The measurement of target length, number of masts, and mast position are among the most basic and de ...

  2. Development of Atomistically-Informed Peridynamics Framework for Corrosion Fatigue Damage Prediction

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N13AT007

    Corrosive environments together with cyclic loading can lead to the formation of localized corrosion pits and corrosion fatigue cracks which can significantly deteriorate the structural integrity of aircraft components. The exact nature of corrosion fatigue damage is dependent on the competing multi-scale processes resulting from complex interactions between the structural material, its environmen ...

  3. Aerostat Communications Relay from Unmanned Surface Vehicle

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: N131039

    The CommLift Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an alternate and novel approach to providing long range, over-the-horizon, communications for surface vessels; it uses a tethered electric UAV to carry a radio payload to suitable altitude, rather than an aerostat. The tether provides power from an unmanned surface vessel (USV) to the UAV and also bi-directional com ...

  4. Detailed ASV/USV Modeling and Simulation System (DAMS)


    In this Phase II SBIR project, Daniel H. Wagner Associates (DHWA), with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and Spatial Integrated Systems (SIS) as our subcontractors, will develop a high definition Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) and Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) modeling and simulation (M&S) system, initially focused on the DARPA Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Ves ...

  6. Enhanced Small-Target Detection and Tracking Using a Mode-Adaptive Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) Detector

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N141020

    The proposed Phase 2 technical effort will leverage the success of the Phase 1 effort and develop adaptive clutter equalization CFAR (ACE-CFAR) techniques that are mode adaptive at the PRI level and handle multiple range resolutions. Conventional CFAR detection processing has difficulty in heterogeneous clutter (i.e., maritime clutter) because the fixed data size windowing is not likely to be well ...

  7. Low Noise Torpedo Power Supply

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: N131032

    QorTek and Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Sensors (LM MS2) are together proposing a new low noise integrated converter architecture that would significantly improve both low frequency noise rejection and the high frequency switching noise content and still fit within the confines of the design envelope. As the prime contractor for the MK48 CBASS torpedoMS2 is uniquely positioned to work with ...

  8. Ultra Sharp Fiber Architectures for Ceramic Composites

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N142119

    Future hypersonic vehicles will be required to fly extended, long term trajectories where the bodies must exhibit high lift-to-drag (L/D) ratios. The need for reduced drag means that the nosetips and leading edges must have small radii, shallow wedge angles, and be erosion resistant. Desirable dimensions include a nose radius on the order of 0.040 inch and a wedge half angle of about 3. This radiu ...

  9. Innovative Interlaminar Mode I and Mode II Fracture Toughness Test Methods for Ceramic Matrix Composites

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N13AT008

    It is critical to the safe use of ceramic matrix composite components that information on the fracture toughness of these materials be available in order to allow an assessment of the likelihood for crack growth. Although Military Standards and American Society for Testing and Materials both serve as resources for room and elevated temperature test methods, there are no standards to obtain the int ...

  10. Optimally Integrate Automated Ship and Small Craft Classification Functions with the Maritime Tactical Picture Tools

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N111030

    Surface vessel detection and classification from airborne platforms relies heavily on radar at operationally useful stand off ranges. Upon detection the radar search waveform may be used to accrue additional information about the surface contact for classification but confidence is likely to be insufficient. Improved classification confidence can be gained by follow-on contact interrogation with h ...
