  1. Enabling Flexible Materials, Devices and Processes for Defense

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT:Emergence and feasibility for flexible body-worn electronics and particularly medical patches requires high performance electronics capability.The problem is that these new technologies must have flexible and conformal physical formats and conventional electronic components are not in any way flexible. In the CLAS Phase I program, a new flexible high-performance manufacturing and material ...

  2. Ultra Fast X-Ray Imaging Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF02292

    ABSTRACT:The DOD needs a multiple pulse X-ray imaging system with high frame rate capability to measure the motion of the target ballast and characterize the debris cloud generated during hypervelocity impacts. Such imaging capability is of vital importance for designing new long-range missile systems with improved accuracy, for assessing damage to the target upon impact to determine its lethality ...

  3. Layered Target Reacquisition and Prosecution from Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI) Cues

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF112163

    ABSTRACT: Under this effort, we will develop a system for precise cross-cueing of target locations between different EO sensors flying on different platforms. The primary emphasis is on target handoff between wide area motion imagery (WAMI) sensors and narrow field-of-view full motion video (FMV) sensors. We address the challenges imposed by metadata inaccuracies, different resolutions, differe ...

  4. Wireless Eddy Current Testing Instrument

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: AF121214

    ABSTRACT: In this program we will miniaturize the wireless probe technology demonstrated in Phase I into a light-weight, wireless ET inspection system that will substantially mitigate many of the common challenges associated with conventional, wired ET. The wireless instrumentation will support conventional ET probes as well as JENTEK's MWM and MWM-Array eddy current sensors. The system will con ...

  5. Precise Estimation of Geo-location Uncertainty

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF131153

    ABSTRACT: As unmanned aerial vehicles have become equipped with high-quality cameras, the warfighter has gained access to large quantities of video and motion imagery with both wider areas of coverage and finer resolutions. For these data to be truly useful, the warfighter needs to be able to precisely geo-locate any pixel in the imagery. As no geo-location algorithm will be perfect, the warfig ...

  6. Space Based Hyper-Spectral Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF131146

    ABSTRACT: Battlespace awareness through on-orbit remote detection and classification of energetic events and objects such as missile launches, bomb blasts, artillery fire and aircraft could provide intelligence on adversaries in near real-time to military commanders. Currently deployed space-based imaging systems lack the spatial, spectral, and temporal resolution necessary for optimal target de ...

  7. Real-Time EDP and TID specification ("RETID")

    SBC: Lowell Digisonde International, LLC            Topic: AF131094

    ABSTRACT: Over-The-Horizon-Radar (OTHR) systems survey large areas searching for targets hundreds to thousands kilometers away. Accurate coordinate-registration (CR) of detected targets requires raytracing and accurate specification of the bottomside ionosphere. The proposed Real-Time EDP & TID (RETID) Specification System is based on the proven IRI electron density model and measurements by DPS4 ...

  8. 4D Dynamic Scene Modeling for Situational Awareness

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF121165

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a systematic framework for constructing 3D scene knowledge from EO/IR video sequences to provide accurate 3D change detections, informative shadow/occlusion masks for target tracking, and geo-location and compression indicators. We construct 3D scene models at a range of fidelities to support robust modeling over a broad range of imaging geometries and viewpoint d ...

  9. DREAM: Detecting Relations, Entities, and Attributes Misinformation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF131051

    ABSTRACT: Information fusion and knowledge conflict detection are required for many mission-critical intelligence analysis tasks. Using knowledge extracted from various sources, including entities, relations, and events, intelligence analysts identify relevant documents, integrate facts into summaries about current situation, and augment existing knowledge with inferred information. To deal with ...

  10. Adaptable Toolkit for the Assessment and Augmentation of Performance by Teams in Real Time (ADAPTER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF131031

    ABSTRACT: Full-spectrum cyber operations, including both Cyber Network Attack and Cyber Network Defense, place enormous cognitive demands on operators and teams. When demands are too high or tasks are not properly allocated, performance degrades, and missions may fail. To avoid operator overload, the USAF requires a thorough, real-time evaluation of the state of the individual and the team. Asses ...
