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

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    R3 Logic proposes to develop an openly accessible Design Environment that will incorporate CAD tools needed for the analysis and design of 3D integrated circuits, including schematic capture, VHDL interfaces, 3D physical layout, verification, 3D parasiticextraction, interactive coupled electro-thermal simulations, and thermally-aware place and route methods. We will achieve this goal, first by bui ...

  2. Quantum Cascade Laser Monitor for N0, N02 and 03

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

    This project will design and deliver a high accuracy monitor for the photo-chemically coupled pollutants nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone using infrared absorption spectroscopy with quantum cascade (QC) lasers. The target molecules are monitored at air quality stations worldwide using instruments which require frequent calibration and are subject to significant chemical interferences (in t ...

  3. Monolithic Semiconductor Light Source with Spectral Controllability

    SBC: AHURA CORPORATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Solid-state light sources promise many advantages over traditional technologies. Among these advantages is the ability to construct a source whose relative spectral distribution can be tuned to better match a desired spectrum. We propose addressing this technical and market opportunity through the development of a novel single-chip semiconductor device which delivers high optical output power (>20 ...

  4. Novel 2-D Digital Imaging Detector for Thermal Neutrons

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of thermal neutrons has been widespread over the past several decades in many investigations such as non-destructive testing (NDT), neutron radiography and macromolecular crystallography. For some applications such as crystallographic diffraction studies, neutrons are scattered over 4o in space and an ideal detector would be able to image the scattered radiation on a spherical surface. Cur ...

  5. 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 yiel ...

  6. Automatic Target Recognition from Motion Video

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a new automatic target recognition (ATR) system that operates on video data, exploiting the inherent redundancy and spatio-temporal coherence of motion imagery to create three-dimensional target signatures. Unlike previous approaches that useshape alone, our method will additionally model and predict object surface appearance properties, in the form of bi-directional reflectance distrib ...

  7. INSIGHT: Interpreting Network Structures to Obtain Intelligence on Groups of Hidden Terrorists

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Detecting and disrupting a terrorist network requires the ability to: link disparate (noisy, deceptive) data and recognize patterns in the underlying networks, estimate where further intelligence would be useful, and predict the network's response topossible attacks.We propose to combine state-of-the-art social network analysis (meta-networks) and statistical inferencing (probabilistic relational ...

  8. Distributed Tracking with Networked, Dynamically Relocatable Sensors

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Organic Air Vehicles have the potential to dramatically improve knowledge of the battlespace by providing persistent networked coverage which can dynamically adjust to changing conditions. These systems require novel algorithms which can address theproblems of positioning, sensor resource allocation, and tracking. Here we propose to define an architecture and create core algorithms which address ...

  9. A Model-Based Index of Cognitive Fightability for Warrior Systems

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current methods to assess system effectiveness often require the development of prototype systems and costly evaluation studies. Several heuristic approaches exist to support technology selection and implementation services, however a scientifically-basedprocess is needed that will consider the functionality that new technology provides, the missions that these systems will be applied to, and the ...

  10. Complex Organizational Reasoning System (CORES)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In Operations Other Than War (OOTW), there is a need for intelligence analysts and military planners to anticipate the actions and responses of complex networked organizations in nontraditional environments, particularly when confronting hostile networks.The Complex Organizational Reasoning System (CORES) encapsulates a multi-agent network simulation model that uses organizational dynamics to gene ...
