  1. Adaptive Levels of Automation for UAV Supervisory Control

    SBC: Big Fun Development Corp            Topic: AF04071

    Problem UAVs hold great potential for force multiplication and increased functionality. To deliver on this potential, future UAV systems must include reliable and flexible autonomous control. UAV autonomy is limited. The desireable level of autonomy depends on many factors. Ideally, the level is dynamic, raising and lowering in response to the mission phase and realworld contingencies. ...

  2. Advanced High Mass Fraction Tactical Rocket Motor Case

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The maturation of Titanium Matrix Composite into an affordable material system with production experience on the F-16 opens up a wide series of opportunities for improved propulsion performance. This SBIR builds on the baseline TMC demonstrations being conducted by FMW and ATK and extends them to advanced systems. The use of configured residual stress states and enhanced Titanium matrix systems ...

  3. Advanced Rocket Propulsion Technologies

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The future propulsion requirements of the USAF will require substantial performance improvements, especially stage mass fraction as defined by the Phase III IHPRPT goals. The development and transition to production of titanium matrix composites (TMC) offer the potential of significant mass fraction gains for liquid engines. This program proposes the substitution of TMC into the impeller, which ...

  4. Alternative Drive System For Deck Edge Elevator

    SBC: JERED INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N03040

    The objective of this work is to develop a new elevator drive system, eliminating the complex hydraulic system now used. The existing hydraulic drive system is made up of several subsystems and components, such as, pumps, piping, tanks, electrical components, and hydraulic components. It uses hazardous fluids. The new system will not use hydraulics or any other hazardous material/fluid. The ele ...

  5. An Enhanced Tropospheric Effects Compensation System Combining Tomographic and GPS Correction Techniques


    Propagation Research Associates (PRA) proposes an innovative system that will correct angle-of-arrival error for radars tracking long range, low elevation targets. The correction improvement will be an order of magnitude improvement over existing model based measurements and will extend time-lines for Ballistic Missile Defense radars. The proposed Enhanced Tropospheric Effects Compensation (ETEC) ...

  6. Application of Microsystem Technologies in Advanced Aerospace Vehicle Power Systems

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF03164

    The Air Force has identified fuel cells as an "emerging technology of choice for power generation" because of their "supreme fuel efficiency, reduced air emissions and minimal fuel costs". The electrolyte is a critical component of a fuel cell, and no solid electrolyte has been identified that permits fuel cell operation in the intermediate temperature range 200-400°C (although this temperature ...

  7. Aspect-Oriented Secure Fuselet Runtime Environment

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: MDA04044

    We propose to develop a secure runtime environment for fuselet-based missile targeting and threat analysis built on a foundation of aspect-oriented secure web services. Aspect-oriented techniques enable the modularization of crosscutting concerns such as remote access, security, transactions, and monitoring. We will compose aspect-oriented instrumentation with distributed object technologies in a ...

  9. Automated Communication Analysis for Interactive Situation Awareness Assessment

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04119

    Military and intelligence operations are highly dependent on the presence of cohesive and effective teams to carry out their missions. In these team operations, rapid and accurate development of a shared, accurate picture of the tactical situation is critical for effective team operations. This Phase I SBIR seeks to employ state of the art techniques in situation awareness theory, cognitive task a ...

  10. Bottom Up Structured Model Development Using Active Forms and Associative Memories

    SBC: SOFTPRO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB041021

    This proposal describes an innovative approach for creating a structured battle-space model, an approach that will allow military experts to directly compose the model rapidly and efficiently. Our approach will eliminate the need for top-down model design and enable faster and cheaper creation of structured content. The conventional approach for building a structured model is top-down: early ...
