  1. Compact Piezoelectric Based Power Generation

    SBC: Active Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Devices proposes an innovation for energy harvesting using piezoelectric based approaches to extract energy from mechanical vibrations. This innovation consists of a piezoelectric element for energy transduction, rectifier circuits for extraction, and storage devices to store power for use by other devices. Ideal models predict that a 1" x1" x.010" piezoelectric wafer undergoing moderate ...

  2. Phased Array Antenna on a Wafer

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The ongoing explosion of microwave radar and communications systems calls for improvement in electronically scanned antennas (ESAs). However, current ESAs crafted from multiple individual elements are extremely expensive. Forming an antenna with integrated scanning and impedance matching elements on a single substrate using thin film technologies may decrease costs by up to two orders of magnitu ...

  3. Thermal Stability Enhancement of JP-5

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Additive technology has been developed which will extend the operating temperature of common aviation fuels like JP-5. However, the currently available additive packages cannot extend the operating temperature high enough to meet the anticipated requirements of future gas turbine engine designs. In addition, these additive packages usually deteriorate other performance properties of the fu ...

  4. A Miniature Internal Combustion Engine for Micro Air Vehicle Propulsion and Power

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Micro Aerial Vehicle (¿AVs) will open up a wide range of new missions for the US Armed Forces, but also present a new set of technical challenges. The power and propulsion system will have a significant impact on the ultimate capabilities and range of missions of ¿AVs. While advanced battery technology can provide good propulsion performance for ¿AVs, miniature internal combustion engines can ...

  5. An Advanced Technology Chemical and Biological Agent Standoff Detection System

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Standoff detection of chemical and biological agent clouds is extremely important for the protection of US armed forces. We propose a system that will successfully perform stand off detection of both chemical and biological agents using a unique combination of advanced technologies. An imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) will perform the remote detection of chemical agents from an Unman ...

  6. Advanced Cable Connector Concepts

    SBC: Alden Products Co.            Topic: N/A

    Existing materials used for marine cable connectors each have drawbacks in terms of cost or performance. Alden Products Company proposes a program to develop a family of cable connectors and adapters that lower the present cost/performance barrier in two ways; through the use of alternative materials and through new manufacturing methods using the existing materials. The main goals of P ...

  7. Unsupervised Pattern Analysis of Vehicle Tracks

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this effort ALPHATECH will develop algorithms for extraction of purposeful temporal-spatial patterns from moving vehicle data and demonstrate their efficiency on a set of simulated MPA scenarios. We apply unsupervised learning algorithms to find similarities between traffic activities. Traffic activities are constructed using ALPHATECH's multiple hypothesis tracking algorithm and grouping cor ...

  8. Continous All-Source Region Monitoring

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this effort we will design and demonstrate the benefits of an integrated fusion system (IFS) for continuous monitoring of targets. The proposed IFS architecture will ensure that all available sensor data is used to generate a consistent picture of target tracks and activities, and it will enable processing of data from each sensor to be cued based on all available information. We will specify ...

  9. Hyperspectral and Synthetic Aperture Radar Fusion for Concealed Target Detection

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Achieving global awareness by automatically exploiting sensor data will provide tremendous advantage to the warfighter. However, camouflage, concealment, and deception (CC&D) can be effective countermeasures against surveillance systems. The most promising strategies for defeating CC&D exploit multiple sensor modalities, such as foliage penetration (FOPEN) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and hype ...

  10. Bayes' Nets for the Dynamic Database

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    recent advances in sensor technology have enabled collection of vast quantities of battlefield information. Warfighters will soon gain global access to this huge volume of information. Rather than construct separate redundant, and inconsistent situation estimates, a Dynamic Database can reduce the data to a comprehensive, self-consistent representation of the environment. This proposal explores ...
