  1. Rapid Initialization and Filter Convergence for Electro-optic / Infrared Sensor Based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation for Automated Ship Landing

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N152111

    Autonomous landing of a fixed wing Unmanned Air Vehicle on the deck of a moving ship requires a fast initializing, precise, and accurate ship-relative navigation solution able that is capable of functioning in emissions control scenarios (EMCON). Current state-of-the-art landing systems rely on RF emissions and are therefore inoperable in EMCON or are subject to the availability of a specific RF s ...

  2. Attack Sensitive Brittle Software

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: N152120

    BlueRISCs proposed solution takes the form of a binary-level toolkit whose goal is to create implicitly brittle software with fast crash properties. The approach performs static analysis at the binary-level (i.e. no source code required) as well as associated transformations aimed at breaking fundamental assumptions regarding inter-procedural data flow as well as code layout and control-flow. Thes ...

  5. Active Cancellation of Dive Helmet Communication System Noise

    SBC: Noise Control Engineering, LLC            Topic: N152110

    In this project we propose to demonstrate the potential of active noise control to reduce acoustic noise in Navy dive helmets by up to 15dB. Emphasis will be placed on reducing noise caused by breathing apparatus and communication system noise and on developing a complementary high fidelity simulation model. The measured signals will be used in a simulation of the ANC system to indicate the achiev ...

  6. Innovative Dive Helmet Communication System

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N152110

    This development is to address diver helmet communications that will operate in the high noise of diver helmet breathing noise and underwater tool noise as well as in varying gas density/mixtures (squeaky voice). The developed system (helmet (bottom-side) and diver station (topside)) will demonstrate improved and clear communications in actual dives and/or dive chambers. The components will be rug ...

  7. R2R Fabrication of Millimeter Wave Dipole Chaff with High Radar Cross Section

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N152082

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) has developed a batch process to coat commercial carbon fibers (CF) with copper. The thickness of the copper coating and the diameter of the substrate fiber can be tuned to yield optimized chaff with high Radar Cross Section (RCS). Simulations and single fiber lab measurements indicate that the proposed copper coated CF (Cu/CF) provide 6.5X extinction compared to the ...
