  1. IMAGINE: Imagery Management through Agile, Geo-Interactive, Natural Embodiment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: NGA11002

    Overhead imagery analysts employ computer-based software as Electronic Light Tables (ELTs), to perform detailed analysis of aerial images in search of elements of interest. Conventional display design for ELT software requires analysts to take their eyes away from the image they are analyzing to perform routine functions. This interaction overhead typically leads to losses in visual momentum and i ...

  2. Long-Endurance Runwayless Composite Aircraft (Orca) UAS

    SBC: NUCLEUS SCIENTIFIC INC            Topic: AF112006

    ABSTRACT: A persistent presence above the battlefield provides for distinct advantages in areas of operation. Aerial platforms can suspend surveillance, SIGINT and C3 payloads aloft for the use of operators and observers. These resources have proven extremely effective when deployed in the field by personnel near the operating area. Such is the case when operating UAVs from forward positions. The ...

  4. Precision Microvalve for Green Propellants

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF083116

    ABSTRACT: Busek proposes to develop a flight-prototype piezo microvalve useful for micro chemical thrusters that require precisely metered flow rates. Deriving from a flight-qualified Busek microvalve and a successful proof-of-concept Phase I laboratory prototype, this proposed valve will be small, lightweight, and ready for flight qualification. It can linearly actuate thrust up to the 100 mN d ...

  5. Automate/Mechanize Current Manual Fuel Sealant Application Methodology

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: AF112115

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft fuel tank fasteners are currently sealed using manual, labor and time intensive processes including extrusion based handheld sealant gun application to hand applied sealant caps and hand operated sealant cup applicators. TIAX proposes the development of an automated and mechanized sealant applicator gun which leverages their core applicator technology for viscous materials. The ...

  6. Simulation for Ubiquitous Red Flag Instruction and Readying (SUREFIRE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF093027

    ABSTRACT: Participants in Red Flag (RF) exercises must be familiar with specific procedures, conditions, and training rules for range safety. Preparing non-US participants requires foreign travel of USAF personnel, which is expensive in money, time, and personnel resources. Considerable savings could be realized with a foreign deployable pre-exercise training environment, requiring no in-country ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Countering Cyber Terrorism through Internet Media

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF093033

    ABSTRACT: Terrorists use a variety of messages, as well as a variety of communications media, to sway impressionable people to their viewpoint. The internet is a very effective emerging medium by which terrorists can spread their ideology. The internet allows propaganda to be disseminated in the form of blog posts, open forums, and multimedia content such as videos. Although the communication mod ...

  10. Non-Invasive, Portable, Real-Time Sensor for Health Monitoring of Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF103214

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc., has proposed to develop a mobile, non-invasive, sensor to assess over time the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors without affecting motor integrity. During Phase I, we have proposed a program that will allow us to identify and monitor specific species as markers of chemical and mechanical aging of solid propellants. We have proposed a program tha ...
