  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. Aerial Refueling Hose Energy Absorbing Device

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N112112

    Probe and drogue air-to-air refueling (AAR) involves extending 70 to 80 feet of hose to allow for receiver engagement. If the receiver engages too fast and/or the hose reel fails to keep tension on the hose, a sine wave will develop. This sine wave can produce overloads on the receiver aircraft probe with catastrophic consequences. AR hoses today are designed to meet the strength and construction ...

  3. Embedded MWM-Arrays for Monitoring Corrosion and Bolt Pre-loads

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N112120

    The GAO estimates that corrosion costs the military services over $21B per year. Corrosion of magnesium housings and between metal surfaces have both been identified as significant concerns. Joints are susceptible because they can trap moisture and contaminants and joint interior spaces cannot be accessed for inspection without disassembly. Magnesium housings are susceptible where they come into c ...

  4. Optical Limiting System Based on Shape-Controlled Plasmonic Nanoparticles

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: N111001

    The proliferation of threat lasers from multiple wavelengths present a significant danger to ground vehicle crew members looking through direct view optics (vision blocks/unity periscopes). Current technologies utilize narrow band filters to block threats at specific wavelengths of common lasers. What is needed is a single frequency-agile laser eye protection system that is effective throughout th ...

  5. Laser protection system with thermally fixed hidden gratings


    This project aims at developing a non focal plane laser protection system consisted of single crystal plates with hidden phase gratings, which can be revealed with exposure to strong laser pulse, and a novel optical shutter based device that follows. The protection system is large in aperture, broad in transparent window (400 nm to 2000 nm) and in field of view, and wavelength-insensitive. The pro ...

  6. Cross-Layer Cache and Queue Management for Resilient Tactical Networks (CLCQMRTN)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N093225

    The objective of this project is to develop a tactical wireless network strategy that offloads TCP/IP traffic to temporary storage or alternate pathways instead of dropping packets from overflowing queues. In Phase I, we adapted DTN strategies for diverting marked packets into external queues when connectivity is lost or congestion occurs, integrated DTN methods with new OSPF methods, and develope ...

  7. Wideband Acoustic Communications Transducer

    SBC: Materials Systems Inc.            Topic: N101046

    The goal of the proposed program is to combine the functionality of the TR-232, TR-233 and ITC-1007 transducers into a single high performance transducer that can meet all of the Navys submarine acoustic communications requirements. All this needs to packaged into a form factor that fits within the current TR-233 footprint and include both transmit and receive response. Materials Systems Inc. (MS ...

  8. Master Clock Vibration-Isolation Technology Improvements for Aircraft Avionics

    SBC: Solid-State Research, Inc.            Topic: N112126

    This MEMS device will permit for resonator structures to be isolated from vibrations present in avionics. The device can be fabricated as a drop-in replacement for existing oscillators or as a new component for next-generation systems.

  9. Innovative Power Generation Technologies for Thermal Battery Replacement

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N112108

    Thermal batteries are used to provide primary power for a range of devices and military systems, and are characterized by a very long shelf life, ability to operate from -65 degrees F to 200 degrees F, and a rapid rise time. Drawbacks of thermal batteries, however, include occasional unreliability, have high cost, low energy density, and associated environmental hazards over their entire life cycl ...

  10. Biomimetic Maneuverable EAP Anti-Submarine Sensor

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N07074

    In order to address the U.S. Navy"s need for improved tools for use in Anti-Submarine Warfare IST has developed key technologies that will enable the deployment of advanced acoustic sensing systems consisting of networked smart sensor nodes. These technologies will allow various components of a sensor network to harvest kinetic energy from the environment or move silently while creating a biomimet ...
