  1. Shock Resistant MEMS Optical Matrix Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF071243

    Future military satellite fiber optic systems require a matrix optical switch for reconfigurability. But to date, no MEMS based switch has been able to withstand the harsh shock and vibration environment of space. Agiltron, Inc., an experienced manufacturer of aerospace qualified optical switches, proposes to realize a new MEMS-based fiber-optic matrix switch capable of vastly improved performance ...

  2. VISION: Video Identification of Structures, Intentions, Objects, and Networks

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082021

    Decision support tools for target identification and alert generation depend upon the classification of static and moving objects. Existing methods for object classification rely primarily on static information available in single-frame images. The data from long-range video surveillance assets are usually not sufficient to distinguish the objects from one another, and even if high-resolution data ...

  3. ACTOR: Automated Collateral Tactics for OPFOR Responses

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A06210

    A key challenge for battlefield mission rehearsal and training systems is the estimation of enemy courses of action (COAs). Currently, adversarial COA development is a manual time-consuming process prone to errors due to limited knowledge about the adversary and its ability to adapt. Development of battlefield simulations with embedded technology that can predict its adversary’s intent and range ...

  4. High Output Turboelectric Diesel (HOTeD)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB082010

    There is a current need for small heavy fuel engines that are light and reliable enough to be used in a variety of applications, such as UAV propulsion. The challenges for such an engine are in meeting the often stringent and competing requirements of high thermal efficiency and high power to weight ratio. Microturbines lack in thermal efficiency and small diesel engines lack in power to weight. ...

  5. Very High Altitude Propulsion System (HDAT)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB072045

    TBDThere is interest in unmanned aircraft that can be deployed to a target via unconventional means and operate at high altitudes for extended periods. A key technology required for such an aircraft is a propulsion system capable of providing the required thrust while meeting stringent requirements. Due to method for deployment, the propulsion system is required to meet several additional requi ...

  6. Platform Independent Omni-directional Antennas

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SB082037

    Increasingly, enemy forces employ technologies that either depend on RF communications or produce detectable RF signatures. Thus, there are many types of RF signals and signatures that can be detected over a variety of different frequency bands and environments by RF sensors. When received, this information can be exploited to confront or avoid potential threats. These sensors operate on differe ...

  7. Statistical Algorithms for Assessing the Efficacy of Community-Generated Educational Games

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SB072012

    The strength of the United States military is highly dependent upon the continued superiority of intellectual resources and technology in the battle arena. Emerging trends indicate that fewer students are pursuing education in the sciences and technology. In an effort to reverse this trend, researchers are working to engage students through interactive educational software. However, a recent U. ...

  8. Upconverting Films

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB072034

    Recent advances in the single wavelength excitation to induce upconversion emission in transparent colloids of Lanthanide-doped NaYF4 nanocrystals provide the opportunity for significant performance in biological tagging applications. For many military missions, a cost-effective, ultra-compact, passively infrared detection is also required to take advantage of the weak fluorescence. Upconversion ...

  9. Evaluation of a Conceptual High Altitude Valveless Internal Combustion Engine Fueled by Green Monopropellant

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB072045

    Busek Co. Inc. proposes to conduct critical studies and experiments to establish the feasibility of a novel High ALtitude Endurance aircraft (HALE) engine called MICE for Monopropellant Internal Combustion Engine. The reference fuel is the hydroxyammonium nitrate (HAN) based monopropellant AF-M315E developed by AFRL for small thrusters in space applications. The heat of combustion of AF-M315E is ...

  10. Straight Jacket-Tracked Vehicle Barriers

    SBC: C-2 INNOVATIONS INC.            Topic: SB072007

    Straight Jacket is a combined effect system laid down as a mat that attacks the running gear of tracked vehicles using a combination of effects. Rather than counter the mass and power of the heavy armor head on, the Straight Jacket system is a subtle approach and uses the running gears design vulnerabilities to its advantage. The system target area is large (9m diameter) and has already been sho ...
