  1. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  2. A TIME-STEPPING METHOD FOR PREDICTING THE FLOW ABOUT POWERED LIFT VEHICLES AT HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK

    SBC: Targazyme, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FLOW FIELD ABOUT POWERED LIFT VEHICLES CAN BECOME VERY COMPLEX DUE TO HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK AND LIFTING JETS. IN ADDITION TO MODELING PROPULSION/AIRFRAME INTERACTIONS, THEREFORE, FLOW PREDICTION METHODS MUST TREAT THE PROBLEMS OF SEPARATION AND THE TRANSIENT EFFECTS OF PASSING VORTICAL STRUCTURES INTERACTING WITH THE AIRFRAME. ANALYTICAL METHODS, INC. (AMI) PROPOSES TO EXTEND ITS POWERED LIFT ...

  3. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  4. Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR)

    SBC: MZEAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Use of"Smartphones"and cellular networks is becoming an increasing priority for military applications. By placing the source of information directly with the solider on the ground via a Smartphone, the vision of"every soldier a sensor"becomes attainable. mZeal proposes to facilitate this vision with the Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR) system. AMMSTAR will capture photographic ...

  5. AIRBORNE ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION SENSING OF SEA ICE THICK-NESS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    A GROWING NEED EXISTS BY BOTH THE MILITARY AND INDUSTRY FOR A RAPID METHOD OF REMOTELY MEASURING THE THICKNESS OF THE ARCTIC SEA ICE COVER. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION SENSOR TO REMOTELY MEASURE SEA ICE THICKNESS FROM AN AIRCRAFT. THEORY SUGGESTS THIS TECHNIQUE HAS GOOD POTENTIAL. IN ORDER TO VERIFY THE THEORY , A COMPUTER ANALYSIS AND A BRIEF ARCTIC FIELD TEST WILL BE PERFO ...

  7. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIENCE QUOTIENT (AIQ)

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS INTENDED TO IDENTIFY MEANS OF EVALUATING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS BY CONTRASTING THEIR ACTUAL LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE TO THE LEVEL THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN EXPECTED FOR THEM. IN SOME WAYS, THE CONCEPT IS RELATED TO THE INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT, WHICH IS A RATIO OF MENTAL AGE TO CHRONOLOGICAL AGE, A COMPARISON OF THE PERFORMANCE NORMS TO THE INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE LEVEL. FOLLOWING THIS ...

  8. Automated Collaboration Collection&Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers for tactical military activities, incident response, and other domains all involve multiple teams of individuals interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. In these organizations, effective coordination and collaboration is critical. To improve collaboration, an end-to-end sensor and analysis technology is n ...

  9. Cognitive Patterns: An Architecture for Distributed Control of ChemBots

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082007

    Today"s robots require a great deal of control and supervision, and are unable to intelligently respond to unanticipated and novel situations. To address this problem, we developed a preliminary architecture for Cognitive Patterns which includes Cognitive Patterns Knowledge Generation (CPKG) and has the ability to connect to various knowledge-based models, multiple sensors, and to a human operator ...
