  1. A Sensor for Relative Position and Attitude Determination

    SBC: Radio-Hydro-Physics LLC            Topic: SB072039

    Design miniaturized sensor based on Dispersed Fourier Transform Spectrometer ("DFTS") technology to provide 3-space position and attitude determination between host and target satellites. The DFTS has demonstrated a capability to establish orbital accuracies in near-real-time at an accuracy of 0.5 meters in range as well as position against the plane of the sky. Even higher accuracies are anticip ...

  2. Accelerator for UAV Modeling in Near-Ship Environments Based on Commodity Graphics Cards

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N07T004

    UAVS (Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle System) integration with naval vessels is currently realized in limited form. This is largely due to the fact that the operational envelopes of these vehicles are based solely on at-sea flight testing. In addition to the complexities involved with at-sea flight testing, the unsteady nature of ship-airwakes and the use of automated UAV control software necessitates ...

  3. Advanced Biomechanical and Physiological Monitoring System for Amputees and Rehabilitating Personnel

    SBC: TENXSYS, INC.            Topic: OSD05H11

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop and build a health monitoring sensor and analysis system to support the return of military personnel with prosthetic devices to active duty. DoD is allowing increasing numbers of soldiers with prosthetics to return to active duty if they are performance capable, minimizing the loss of their valuable core expertise to the services. There are significant cha ...

  4. Automated Reasoner Technology for Managing Military Aircraft

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N06023

    Comprehensive health monitoring systems are fielded on some Navy aircraft, including the Integrated Aircraft Health Monitoring (IAHM) on the F/A-18, and rotorcraft Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) on a subset of the Navy’s H-60 and H-53 inventory. Due to the early successes and benefits shown by these systems, new platforms such as JSF will have even more comprehensive Prognostic Healt ...

  5. Bi-Directional Power Converters

    SBC: CREATIVE ENERGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N06163

    The founders of CES have identified three shortcomings of the proposed Integrated Fight Through Power (IFTP) system. The system’s lack of galvanic isolation will lead to ship-wide ground fault problems. The system’s inability to incorporate alternative power sources (fuel cells or energy storage systems) results from unidirectional power flow. The system’s use of non-commercial bus voltag ...

  6. Distributed Coordination of Large UAV teams with Limited and Intermittent Communication

    SBC: QUANTUM LEAP INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N07T019

    Efficient coordination among heterogeneous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) promises to revolutionize the way in which complex tasks such as battlefield surveillance and support can be performed. However, current algorithms are not capable of achieving efficient and effective coordination such as dynamic task allocation and reallocation among large numbers of UAVs due to either the severe bottlenec ...

  7. Dynamic Kernel Monitoring for Attack Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD07I05

    The activity of an OS kernel may be monitored dynamically in real time. As the kernel executes, the transition among the constituent components of the kernel will follow a predictable pattern representing the normal operation of the kernel. An attack on the operating system will induce a significant and immediately recognizable disturbance in this pattern of normal activity. The Attack Recognit ...

  8. Embedded Health Monitoring for Propulsion Control System Actuators

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: N05094

    Latent degradation of propulsion actuators adversely impacts the stability and dynamic performance of the aircraft control system. Sentient’s Phase I effort successfully demonstrated the feasibility of monitoring actuator degradation using robust and computationally inexpensive hybrid model/feature based methods. The goals of Phase II are to expand upon and validate the physics-based actuator ...

  9. Enhanced Realtime Millimeter Wave Imaging Using Hardware Acceleration

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N06079

    While the need for effective millimeter wave (mmW) imaging systems is clear, there remains a significant gap in the technology needed to realize it, namely the ability to process and enhance mmW imagery in a real-time manner. This is particularly important because raw mmW images appear very fuzzy, are color mapped, and have regions of intensity that are not normally associated with visible and IR ...

  10. Health Management for Gas Turbine Engine Accessory Components

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: AF06171

    The overall objective of this project is to develop an effective and practical diagnostic/prognostic capability for turbine engine accessories. The Phase I effort demonstrated the effectiveness of combining high fidelity physics-based models with feature based algorithms to diagnose incipient faults in turbine engine accessories. The goals for Phase II are to fully implement these techniques and t ...
