  1. RF Material Property Characterization

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    The research team proposes to expand the capabilities of an existing microwave nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system that measures thickness, quantifies dielectric properties (e.g. loss tangent, phase shift, dielectric constant, conductivity), and detects flaws in composite materials. The prototype system has been successfully used on military aircraft sandwich and single layer composite structu ...

  2. Direct Digital Fabrication and Characterization of New Low Cost Titanium Alloys

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N122123

    In this Phase I program, MER will work with Prof. James Williams of Ohio State University (OSU) to identify and fabricate new titanium alloys of interest to the Navy. The alloys will be fabricated using a low cost DDM process in place at MER which utilizes a plasma transferred arc welding torch as the heat source. The mechanical properties and microstructure of these new alloys will be characteriz ...

  3. Innovative Method for Wirelessly Powering RFID Tags Located on Rotorcraft

    SBC: Benz Airborne Systems            Topic: N122126

    Benz Airborne Systems is pleased to provide a comprehensive plan for integrating RF power charging/re-charging technologies with the long range read capabilities of semi-passive RFID. Several methods for RF power transmission have been considered and are summarized in this proposal. Our research will be on antenna performance at RFID-scale tag sizes. The resulting tags must be compatible with comp ...

  4. Tell Me About

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: N122136

    Our proposed work addresses the significant challenges in providing responses to complex"tell me about"questions that intelligently consolidate relevant information into a finished dossier. We will induce the semantic signature of the question target by using relevant sample intelligence reports to derive a set of information requirements which will be used to create a finished dossier. These info ...

  5. Cloud-Based Tell-Me-About Q&A System

    SBC: VCRSOFT LLC            Topic: N122136

    The essence of the problem is to allow military intelligence and operations staff to pose"tell me about"questions concerning an entity, and obtain a finished information product. There are 4 main technical challenges / sub-problems: a) Question content modeling: The question needs to be semantically mapped to an ontology. b)Semantic enrichment of unstructured text: Unstructured data (text, images ...

  6. Query Language for Analytic Product Support (Q-LAPS)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N122136

    The tremendous amount of information available to the analyst is both an opportunity and a problem. Clearly, more information provides analysts with a better foundation for their analyses. However, as the amount of information increases, analysts are finding it more and more difficult to take advantage of the wealth of information, due to the difficulty in extracting the information that they need ...

  7. iSee

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N122144

    iSee (IC the augmentation of intuitive decision making using Computation) is a framework that will enable accelerated, accurate intuitive Decision Making (iDM). Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) will model iDM based on the functioning of our brains to improve decision-making performance by enhancing the ability to see through the information clutter effectively. The goal is to blend rapid data ...

  8. Unpressurized High Density Oxygen Storage with Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD12105

    Closed circuit breathing apparatus (CCBA, rebreather systems) where exhaled CO2 is removed and con-sumed oxygen replaced, offer much longer working times on a single gas charge than open circuit ones (SCBA). This is achieved through the use of high pressure compressed oxygen. When CCBA units are used in conflict areas this requires the regular delivery of hazardous cargo (high pressure oxygen, 3 ...

  9. Regenerable Carbon Dioxide Removal Technology Based on Novel Macroporous Ion Exchange Resins for Closed-Circuit Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD12106

    Currently, the U.S. Military encounters many scenarios where soldiers must enter hazardous areas, yet still maintain isolation from chemical and biological contaminants as well as hazardous materials. This requires the soldiers"respiratory tract be isolated from encountering these contaminants. To accomplish this, the soldiers wear protective suits and/or masks which include a respiratory isolatio ...

  10. Rapid Sample Transport in Austere Environments

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: CBD12108

    Attaining rapid transportation of samples 50-1000 miles in an austere environment requires air transportation. Past applications have included UAV"s which transport the sample to selected location and drop the sample via guided parachute These systems can be quite accurate but they are expensive and relatively large. Balloons are an attractive alternative. They are inexpensive, compact and can be ...
