  2. CONTROLLED EMITTANCE MATERIAL FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION APPLICATIONS

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

    SKIN COATINGS FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION REQUIRE MORE THAN SIMPLE EMISSIVITY CONTROL. CONTROL OF THE DIRECTIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF EMITTED/REFLECTED RADIATION AND ACTIVE HEATING OR COOLING ARE ALSO NECESSARY. THE RADIANCE FROM THE OBJECT NEEDS TO APPROXIMATE THE RADIANCE FROM THE BACKGROUND OVER A BROAD RANGE OF VIEWING ANGLES. THIS REQUIRES A COMPLICATED BIDIRECTIONAL REFLECTANCE DISTRIBUTION FUN ...

  3. Sensor Fusion Modeling to Support Combat Identification

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

    The process of designing and evaluating advanced aircraft coatings can be made more efficient, more robust, and less expensive through application of highly accurate and flexible computer models. The General Scattered Light (GSL) model is such a signature analysis tool, but its potential is difficult to access by untrained or infrequent users, seriously limiting its value. We propose to overcome t ...

  5. MILITARY AIRLIFT COMMAND (MAC) COMMAND, CONTROL, AND COMMUNICATIONS (C3) SYSTEM ASSESMENT

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING ADVANCED PETRI NET TECHNOLOGY TO ANALYZE THE PERFORMANCE OF LARGE-SCALE C3 SYSTEMS. THE US AIR FORCE IS UNDERGOING A MAJOR RESTRUCTUTING OF ITS FORCES IN RESPONSE TO THE CHANGING GLOBAL SITUATION AND THE RESULTING SHIFT IN DEFENSE NEEDS AND PRIORITIES. THIS REORIENTATION WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON AIR FORCE MISSIONS, CO ...

  6. AN INVESTIGATION OF MATERIALS AND AUTOMATED PRODUCTION METHODS FOR SMART STRUCTURES

    SBC: American Composite Technology            Topic: N/A

    MANY POTENTIAL SPACE SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF MAINTAINING EXTREMELY TIGHT TOLERANCES ON DIMENSIONS AND VIBRATIONS. ONE APPROACH TO ACHIEVING THE NECESSARY TOLERANCES IS TO EMPLOY TRUSSES MADE USING SMART STRUCTURES. A SMART STRUCTURE IS ONE IN WHICH THE CONTROL, SENSING AND ACTUATION FUNCTIONS ARE INTEGRATED INTO THE MATERIAL WHICH MAKES UP THE INDIVIDUAL TRUSS ELEMENTS. PROPERLY ...

  8. Batteryless Sensors for Intrusion Detection and Assessment of Threats

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A batteryless and wireless sensor for intrusion detection and assessment of threats which requires no battery, external power or wiring is proposed. These types of sensors derive energy from passing vehicles or persons, and indicate their presence, location, speed, etc., via a self-generated short-range radio signal. These sensors require no maintenance, and can be inconspicuously placed in window ...

  9. Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Technology for Covert Airborne Radio and Other Applications

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advances in impulse, or Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology by ANRO Engineering, Inc. (ANRO) over the past 10 years now provide a firm foundation for advanced communication system applications, including video, voice, data and ranging information in an LPI/D waveform. A UWB data link is proposed to meet the requirements for a Wideband Covert Airborne Radio (WCAR) capable of providing wind dropsonde an ...
