  2. CONTROLLED EMITTANCE MATERIAL FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION APPLICATIONS

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

    SKIN COATINGS FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION REQUIRE MORE THAN SIMPLE EMISSIVITY CONTROL. CONTROL OF THE DIRECTIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF EMITTED/REFLECTED RADIATION AND ACTIVE HEATING OR COOLING ARE ALSO NECESSARY. THE RADIANCE FROM THE OBJECT NEEDS TO APPROXIMATE THE RADIANCE FROM THE BACKGROUND OVER A BROAD RANGE OF VIEWING ANGLES. THIS REQUIRES A COMPLICATED BIDIRECTIONAL REFLECTANCE DISTRIBUTION FUN ...

  3. MICROWAVE ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTER USING PARALLEL OPTICAL SAMPLING

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

    WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE AN OPTICAL ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTER FOR MICROWAVE ANALOG SIGNALS WHICH UTILIZES A SINGLE ELECTROOPTIC BROADBAND VELOCITY MATCHED TRAVELLING WAVE MODULATOR BUT WITH MULTIPLE PULSED OPTICAL BEAMS TO SAMPLE THE SIGNAL AND MULTIPLE STANDARD ELECTRONIC A/D'S TO ACCOMPLISH THE CONVERSION IN PARALLEL. THE DIGITAL OUTPUT WORDS APPEAR ON MULTIPLE SETS OF LINES APPROPRIATE FOR A ...

  4. REENTRY VEHICLE BODY SIGNATURE SIMULATION IN THE ULTRAVIOLET TO INFRARED SPECTRUM

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

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD PROVIDE THE AIR FORCE BALLISTIC SYSTEMS DIVISION (BSD) WITH AN ENGINEERING LEVEL SIGNATURE MODELING CAPABILITY FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF REENTRY VEHICLES (RVS) DURING THE MIDCOURSE PHASE. THE PRESENT AERODYNE RESEARCH, INC. (ARI) SPIRITS SIGNATURE MODEL OFFERS THE BASSIS FOR THE MODELING CAPABILITY IN THE ULTRAVIOLET (UV) THROUGH THE INFRARED (IR) SPECTRUM. THE SPIRITS MODEL ...

  5. LIGHT-WEATHER DATABASE FOR REENTRY TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEVELOPMENT OF A PLAN AND ITS DEMONSTRATION IN PRODUCING MODERN DATABASE FOR RV TECHNOLOGIES IS PROPOSED BY USING CLOUD MICROPHYSICAL DATA SETS COLLECTED SINCE 1985 OVER THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT AND U.S. ARMY KWAJALEIN ATOLL. THE PLAN INCLUDES THE USE OF AIRBORNE RADAR, MODELING, AND SATELLITE ADDITIONS TO THE PARTICLE SIZE DATA TO CORRELATE PARTICLE SIZE AND LIQUID WATER CONTENT OVER AN EXTEN ...

  6. AN INVESTIGATION OF MATERIALS AND AUTOMATED PRODUCTION METHODS FOR SMART STRUCTURES

    SBC: American Composite Technology            Topic: N/A

    MANY POTENTIAL SPACE SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF MAINTAINING EXTREMELY TIGHT TOLERANCES ON DIMENSIONS AND VIBRATIONS. ONE APPROACH TO ACHIEVING THE NECESSARY TOLERANCES IS TO EMPLOY TRUSSES MADE USING SMART STRUCTURES. A SMART STRUCTURE IS ONE IN WHICH THE CONTROL, SENSING AND ACTUATION FUNCTIONS ARE INTEGRATED INTO THE MATERIAL WHICH MAKES UP THE INDIVIDUAL TRUSS ELEMENTS. PROPERLY ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION OF SHARABLE ADVANCED IMAGE UNDERSTANDING ALGORITHMS

    SBC: AMERINEX APPLIED IMAGING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A NEW APPROACH TO THE TRANSFER OF TECHNOLOGY IN IMAGE UNDERSTANDING (IU). IT IS BASED UPON THE USE OF A SHARED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT FOR IU, CALLED THE KBVISION (TM) SYSTEM, WHICH CAN SERVE TO EASE THE TRANSFER OF COMPUTER VISION ALGORITHMS. THE PHASE I PROPOSAL WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE TRANSFER OF IU SOFTWARE BY SHARING ...

  9. CLUTTER REDUCTION AND RESOLUTION ENHANCEMENT TECHNIQUES FOR FOLIAGE PENETRATING SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR SYSTEMS

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

    THIS RESEARCH PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION AND FEASIBILITY ASSESSMENT OF SIGNAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES FOR IMPROVING THE SIGNAL-TO-CLUTTER RATIO IN FOLIAGE PENETRATION SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR (SAR) DATA, BASED ON ADAPTIVE CROSS-MODELING OF THE COMPETING CLUTTER THROUGH THE USE OF MULTIPLE RADAR FREQUENCIES. THE ADAPTIVE CROSS-MODELING APPROACH SEEKS TO ESTIMATE THE CLUTTER RETURN ...
