  1. A "Smart Skin" Array for Reconfigurable Hypersonic MHD Effects

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB032031

    Research Support Instruments, Inc. (RSI), with the aid of Princeton University, proposes to use an innovative sensor/actuator package to provide a critical component for multifunctional hypersonic vehicle structures. An integrated array of microfabricated pressure sensors and ionizers will provide a "smart skin" atop a reconfigurable magnetic array. The high-bandwidth sensors will detect develo ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Rubust System for Automated Video-Based Vehicle Recognition

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: SB031015

    We propose an end-to-end video-based system for online class recognition of moving vehicles observed by a passive stationary camera. SAVOR (or System for Automated Video-based Object Recognition) continuously detects, tracks, and classifies vehicles within the camera's field of view in real time, additionally providing a live operator display and archiving data and results for later analysis. To o ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Adaptive Communication System for Extreme Power Line Networks

    SBC: NORTHERN MICRODESIGN, INC.            Topic: SB043038

    An ad-hoc networking method is proposed for use over existing power lines in large commercial buildings. The network is minimally sensitive to lossy elements such as distribution transformers and tripped or OFF circuit breakers and hardware may be made interoperable with existing power line communication systems. Adaption performance of the network is programmable so that various sensor requirem ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Arachne: A Modular Teleoperated Mobility and Sensor System for Insinuation into Collapsed Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: SB041018

    Events in recent years have emphasized the need for a small, highly mobile system that can effectively insinuate a sensor payload into underground or collapsed structures. In the aftermath of the World Trade Center disaster, robots showed great promise in aiding search and rescue by penetrating into areas too dangerous for personnel to enter. However, their relatively large size (on the order of ...

  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. Autonomous Field Emission Cathodes for Electrically Propelled Nanosats

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB032051

    The objective for this Phase I program is to lay the foundation for the development of an autonomous electron source for use with electrically propelled nanosats. Electric propulsion offers high specific impulse, and in the case of electrodynamic tethers, "propellant-less" operation. The electron source will be based upon field emission from C-nanotubes. It will function as a "drop-in" componen ...

  10. Bayesian Troop-Target Detection, Tracking, and Prediction Using FOPEN-GMTI Radar

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB041024

    This proposal addresses the problem of automatically detecting, tracking, and predicting the locations and velocities of formations of dismounted ground troops concealed in foliage, using data collected from P-band FOPEN-GMTI radars. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. (SSCI) and its subcontractor Lockheed Martin Tactical Systems (LMTS) will address this ``troop-target'' problem with a theoretic ...
