  3. A Generalized Uncertainty Analysis for Physical Optics Based Radar Cross Section Prediction

    SBC: ANALYTIC DESIGNS INC            Topic: AF06217

    Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) for Combat Identification (CID) represents one of the most demanding disciplines in sensor technology facing the United States Air Force today. Central to this process is the development of validated synthetic. Unfortunately, the synthetic database generation process is hampered by uncertainty. Under a previous program, Analytic Designs, Incorporated developed ...

    SBC: Nu Waves Ltd.            Topic: N07191

    Existing filter technology does not suit the mechanical and electrical needs for use in expendable buoy systems. Current diplexer designs do not provide adequate rejection of the high power transmitter signal within the receive channel within the specified size, weight and acceleration constraints required for the Navy Buoy System. The proposed research includes the analysis and simulation of a h ...

  7. A MEMS–Based Sensor for Automation and Control of Fluid Valves

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: N04220

    Flow inventory for the Automated Fire Suppression System (AFSS) will enable early detection of leaks and damage and will enable distributed control schemes that are robust to localized damage. Very sensitive pressure sensors are required to implement such a system. The sensitivity must be complemented by extremely high over-pressure capability. This program continues the development of a MEMS- ...
