  2. Advanced Pressure Sensitive Adhesive for Low Observable Outer Mold Line Repair (1001-604)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF093114

    In this Phase II program Triton Systems will develop and optimize a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) system to meet the Air Force requirements for adhesion in the 2 8 pli range across a temperature range of -65degreesF to +250degreesF. In addition the PSA will be resistant to a variety of aircraft fluids including JP-8, oils, and de-icing fluids. Production of the PSA will be scaled-up to be p ...

  3. Video Analysis Using Perceptual Organization and Machine Learning

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF05309

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop, demonstrate, and implement at EAFB the EVASE:"Extensible Video Analysis of Symbology Events"Matlab toolkit. This system is based on the premise that it will learn symbology events during training by an expert operator, and then autonomously detect this symbology in long video sequences, resulting in a list of key events to assist the operator in f ...

  4. Si-N-B-C Aerogels for Thermal Protection System of Reentry Vehicles

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: AF04031

    The Air Force has an interest in new designs and new materials for TPS of hypersonic reentry vehicles. Military hypersonic vehicles will reenter the atmosphere according to trajectories that are more aggressive than that of the Space Shuttle Orbiter and expected to be able to maneuver in the atmosphere at speeds around March 20 for more than 4100 seconds. This will result in the extremely high t ...

  5. Real-Time Process Control Sensor for Measuring Arsenic Concentration in Water

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: AF04302

    Arsenic in drinking water is a severe health risk to populations throughout the world. In recognition of this risk, the Environmental Protection Agency recently lowered its water standard for arsenic from 50 ppb to 10 ppb. To comply with the new standard, there is an urgent need to develop new, simple, and effective systems to monitor this toxic substance in water. The overall objective of this S ...

  6. Lightweight Optics for High Energy Applications

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: AF04008

    The Air Force is interested in high stiffness, lightweight technologies for beam control of tactical airborne and relay mirror high-energy laser systems. The corrected system wavefront error can be minimized using low figure error/surface finish, low print-through, high-stiffness, Silicon Lightweight Mirror Systems (SLMS™) technology with high-reflectivity, very low absorption (VLA) coatings. ...

  7. Automating Software Protection with the Random Obfuscating Compiler Version 2 (ROC2) running on Beowulf Clusters

    SBC: ANGEL SECURE NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: OSD04SP3

    Our Random Obfuscating Compiler2 (“ROC2”) automated toolset will protect DoD HPC executables running on Beowulf clusters from reverse engineering or compromise. Preliminary DoD HPC research is often conducted on university Beowulfs, which are also used by unscreened researchers and students. The US is engaged in an arms race and must protect valuable IP. A ROC2 toolset is feasible now. Phas ...

  8. Parameter Adaptation for Target Recognition in LADAR (PATROL)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF04230

    Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms are extremely sensitive to differences between the operating conditions (OCs) under which they are trained and the OCs in which the fielded algorithms operate. For ATR algorithms to robustly recognize targets while retaining low false alarm rates, they must be able to identify the conditions under which they are operating and tune their parameters on t ...

  9. Machine Learning for Robust Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF04230

    The primary issue faced by ATR systems center around the large "variability of the ATR problem space spanned by the targets, sensors, and the environment and the associated challenge is to develop "robust" approaches to improve ATR system performance. The primary innovation of this work is the development of an automated way of developing heuristic inference rules that can draw on multiple models ...

  10. Automated Toxicity Hazard Assessment Decision-aiding System (ATHADS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD03DH03

    The first and a key stage in military planning is the intelligence preparation of the battlespace (IPB). IPB is a continuous process that defines the battlespace environment and its effects and determines and evaluates likely enemy actions. Typically, characterization of the battlespace and its effects has focused on: performing terrain and spatial analysis (delineation of areas of operation, aven ...
