  1. Full Band Acoustic Localization Processing

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of a submarine passive localization system which will localize and track short duration intentional and unintentional emissions from submarines and weapons. The approach combines radius of curvature ranging using time delay measurements from an array of hull mounted hydrophones with a multi hypothesis tracking algorithm for resolution of a ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Image Generator Frame to Frame Update Post Processor

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Amherst Systems proposes to develop a real-time scene generation capability which combines the advantages of both geometry-based and image-based rendering systems. This capability shall be provided by extending the current capabilities of Amherst Systems' Real-Time Infrared Scene Simulator (RISS) to include post processing of the rendered scenes. The RISS shall be run at slower than real ...

  5. Distributed EMCON and Frequency Plan Performance Monitor

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a study to design an automated EMCON Management System to enable ship and force elements to better coordinate sensors and operate without inadvertent loss of tactical advantage to unfriendly forces. The study approach separates the radar and communication elements of the problem. The postulated design assigns the radar EMCON functions to the ship's EW system, and the ...

  6. Optical Rotman Beamforming Lens for Multi-Function RF/Microwave/Millimeter Wave Antenna Systems

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this six-month Phase I program, ANRO Engineering, Inc. proposes to investigate the properties of compact, low-cost, two-dimensional fiber optic and integrated optic Rotman lenses for application to wideband, multi-function RF/microwave/millimeter wave antenna (MFA) systems. The photonic Rotman lens will enable the reception and transmission of simultaneous, multiple frequency, independent ...

  7. Low Cost, Fiber Optic Array, Using Continuous Component Construction

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Significant advances have been made over the past few years in all optical arrays. Low cost optical sensors have been produced and demonstrated along with optical telemetry capable of multiplexing many sensors onto a single optical fiber. Although the new optical sensors and telemetry designs have come a long way toward making optical arrays an economic reality, the array construction they ...

  8. COMPUTER-BASED ADAPTIVE TUTOR FOR ADULT READING COMPREHENSION

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a computer-based adaptive tutor to improve the reading comprehension skills of adult readers. Our instructional strategy is based on the Reciprocal Teaching method, demonstrated to improve reading comprehension. The "scaffolded" Reciprocal Teaching method demonstrates strategies for full reading comprehension, then gradually withdraws instruction, encouraging learners to pra ...

  9. Laser Beam Delivery in a Fiberoptic with Corrected Phase by a Phase Conjugate Mirror

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen System proposes an innovative technology for correcting the phase of a high power laser beam delivered via a multimode fiberoptic. The proposed system has an architecture lending itself to a broad variety of applications that range from ladars to medical catheters. Keeping the commercial applications in perspective, the laser source and other bulky components are positioned at the back-e ...

  10. Automatic Registration of Forward-Looking Imagery

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Atlantic Aerospace Electronics Corporation proposes to develop an automatic image registration sufficiently accurate to deal with images exhibiting differences in scale and perspective. The algorithm consists of a global step aimed at registration of features on the ground, followed by a local step to accommodate objects with vertical extent. The global component will be based on Harris Informat ...
