  1. Wire Detection in mmW Radar Using Convolutional Neural Networks

    SBC: Covar Applied Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A152093

    This is a proposal for Phase II of SBIR topic A152-093. During Phase I, CoVar Applied Technologies, Inc., developed novel methods for the detection of power-lines in mmW radar data by leveraging deep learning approaches and Bayesian tracking. CoVars novel algorithms were demonstrated to outperform state of the art algorithms from the relevant research literature. These algorithms will be enhanced ...

  2. Wide FOV and Fast Active Optical Detection System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09013

    In this SBIR program, we propose to develop a wide angle and fast optical detection system for measuring the slung load cable angle and angular rate in real time, which is necessary to stabilize the external loads in heavy-lift vertical resupply operations by fleet helicopters or unmanned helicopters. This development efforts leverage Agiltrons extensive experiences in developing the variety of im ...

  3. Wideband Fast Switched RF Synthesizer

    SBC: SenSyTech, Inc. Imaging Group            Topic: N/A

    The current market for fast switching frequency sythesizers is growing rapidly. Most synthesizers available today will not meet the stringent requirements for switching quickly, providing spectrally pure RF outputs and minimizing physical size and cost. As part of a current SBIR program, S.T. Research has developed a wideband, fast switching synthesizer, based on the use of broadband phase-locke ...

  4. Virtual RF Environment

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: A09060

    Echo Ridge and partner Comsearch, propose to design, build, test, demonstrate and validate a prototype DYnamic Spectrum Environment Emulator (DYSE), which provides a Virtual RF Environment (VRE) for RF system testing. Our vision for the end state of the effort is the availability of a productized DYSE (hardware and application software) configured from COTS components, useful for lab-based develop ...

  5. Utilizing Optical Defocusing and Computational Imaging for Laser Intensity Reduction at CCD Focal Planes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A08064

    Sensor protection against agile-frequency lasers is a critical Army Technology Objective (ATO). We propose simple defocusing of existing sensor optics as a layer within the optical limiting (OL) stack. This requires no additional optical components, and promotes compatibility with other OL stack elements. The challenge resides in computing the inverse filtering operation to recover the in-focus im ...

  6. TPE Honeycomb Materials System for ACH Helmet Pads

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: A09117

    TIAX proposes the continued development of a pad system for the Advanced Army Helmet (ACH) based on the use of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) honeycomb structures optimized through materials characterization, simulations of system behavior, and dynamic testing. In the Phase I program, TIAX developed and demonstrated a pad concept based on the notion that the directionality of the honeycomb structur ...

  7. Tools for Distributed Component Real-Time Embedded Systems

    SBC: I-Kinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ever increasing costs and complexities in real-time, embedded software has resulted in the need for product line architectures and supporting infrastructure technology, tools and design methodologies. Software reusability improves the productivity and quality of software development. By using existing software components and architectures to develop new applications, overall development costs an ...

  8. Three-Axis Fiber Optic Gyroscope

    SBC: System Engineering Solutions,            Topic: N/A

    The emerging Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) technology has demonstrated performance that can meet the requirements of current and future navigation and alignment systems. The performance comes at the cost of significant size and weight with resulting system packaging problems. The FOG Triad system proposed by System Engineering Sol., Inc. addresses this problem by configuring a compact nested 3-axi ...

  9. Thin Film Conductive Matrices for Electrochemical Biosensors

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proliferation of nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) weapons presents a continuing need for the Army to develop sensors that are "faster, cheaper and better". The requirement is for "multi-agent sensors and detectors providing real-time detection and identification of chemical/biological agents". As a result, the tri-services have had an ongoing interest in biosensors, a class of point se ...

  10. Thermoelectric-Powered Field Kitchen Appliances

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09162

    Cooking appliances in U.S. Army field kitchens are currently heated by burning JP-8 fuel using electrically powered burners. Power is supplied by a separate JP-8 fired generator that serves multiple appliances simultaneously. This is inefficient, as generators are only 20-25% efficient, and unreliable since failure of the generator results in the failure of the entire kitchen operation. This is a ...
