  1. Seat Belt Non-usage Warning System

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Highway fatalities per 100 million vehicle-miles have declined from a high of 5.1 in 1960 to 1.5 in 1999. Increased use of seat belts undoubtedly is responsible for a significant portion of this decline. The goal of DOT¿s ¿Buckle Up America¿ campaign, initiated in 1997, is to increase the seat belt usage rate to 90 percent by 2005. However, current seat belt usage falls short of this goal. ...

  2. Nonlinear Ultrasonic Rail Inspection System

    SBC: NASCENT TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Rail inspection has seen steady, incremental advances for decades. From early Sperry ultrasonic inspection cars to EMATS, rail NDE has followed a tried and true path ¿ launch carefully selected critical angle waves to inspect a region of the rail under or near the sensors. In this proposal, we take a fundamental departure from that tradition to better differentiate critical defects. Our approac ...

  3. Computer-Aided Design Tools for Three-Dimensional Circuit Integration

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "R3 Logic, Incorporated proposes to perform a comprehensive study to develop a fullsuite of computer-aided design tools for three-dimensional circuit integration. Thecompany will build on its existing tool set that enables 3-D physical layout andverification and will develop recommendations for extending these tools to permitanalyses of 3-D circuit performance, including thermal and electromagneti ...

  4. Smart Escort Microsatellite: A Modular Solution for On-Orbit Rendezvous and Inspection

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "AeroAstro proposes to develop a scaleable architecture for a low cost, rapid response Smart Escort Microsatellite inspection and servicing system that will support the needs of the United States military's current and planned space assets, while workingwithin the constraints of the RASCAL program. Instead of competing with other, large infrastructure on orbit servicing programs, this effort will ...

  5. Methods for Detecting and Eliminating Undesired Target Returns from Training Data in Adaptive Radar Processing

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Recent studies have shown that the performance of Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) degrades when there are moving targets in the secondary training data. Although a variety of techniques have been proposed for controlling the effects of targets inthe secondary data (TSD), these techniques generally do not take advantage of external information. We are developing knowledge-based STAP (KBSTA ...

  6. Through Strike Battle Damage Assessment using Synthetic Aperture Radar

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose novel data-adaptive approaches for processing synthetic aperture radar (SAR) phase history data to automatically assess subtle damage inflicted by small sub-munitions on military ground vehicles. These techniques are designed for a battlefieldscenario in which the ground vehicle under attack is illuminated by a stand-off airborne SAR sensor before, during and after the weapon strike, ...

  8. Regionally Adaptive Precision Tracking

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "While there have been a number of recent advances in track precision and maintenance via the AMSTE program, long-term track maintenance remains an elusive goal. Track breaks are primarily the result of miss-detections due to micro-obscuration from foliageand buildings and or due to the vehicle dropping below Minimum Detectable Velocity (MDV) because of parking or stopping at intersections and yie ...

  9. Tactical Antenna Switching and Positioning System (TASPS)

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Satellite communications has advanced remarkably and applications are now expanding rapidly, particularly in the use of very small aperture terminals (VSATs). In many instances, military forces are required to establish and maintain communications viaSATCOM (using VSATs) while stationed temporarily on Navy ships. Applied EM, Inc. (AEM) proposes to design and develop a Tactical Antenna Switching a ...

  10. Complex Organizational REasoning System (CORES)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "For OOTW there is a need to work with, respond to, understand, and predict the behavior of a wide range of organizations?ranging from military units to coalition forces, terrorist cells, and civilian populations. Planning for OOTW requires being able toreason about how a diverse range of organizations will respond. Intelligence analysts and mission planners need a tool to understand the behavior ...
