  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 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 ...

  3. ACA: Active Collaborative Autonomy

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB111004

    Anti-access Area Denial (A2AD) capabilities from peer threats render many aspects of current CONOPS inadequate.For example, our manned aircraft are projected to experience unacceptable attrition against peer IADS forces.The overall system concept of collaborative teams of smaller UAVs and manned-unmanned teams shows great promise for counteracting the A2AD threats and improving the cost-exchange r ...

  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. Affordable Engine Flow Path CMC Structures for Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA13005

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to further develop our ultra-high temperature ceramic composite (UHT-CMC) technologies to enable production of cost effective engine flow path component for use in environments that will be encountered by the next generations of high speed vehicles such as strike weapons or ISR platforms. The proposed program is designed to highlight the specific benefits of ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Compact, Configurable, Real-Time Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging System

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SB152006

    Spectral Sciences Inc. (SSI) proposes to address the need for real-time re-configurable infrared hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensor by developing the Configurable ON-Demand Optical Reconnaissance (CONDOR) sensor, optimized to satisfy multiple-mission requirements through highly adaptive target detection, classification and tracking. The CONDOR sensor features programmable hardware enabling on-the- ...

  9. Contact Lens See-Through Head Worn Display

    SBC: Innovega Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    This Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of using specially modified contact lenses combined with an LCD display illuminated with a wave-guided backlight to enable an 80 degree field of view see-through display. The new eyewear architecture being proposed is a radical departure from traditional near eye displays. Rather than present the eye with collimated rays of light that appear ...

  10. Context-driven Active-sensing for Repair Tasks II (CART II)

    SBC: Dynamic Object Language Labs, Inc.            Topic: ST14B003

    Existing machine perception systems are too inflexible, and are not robust enough to environmental uncertainty. In existing systems, perception components are statically (and manually) configured to process sensor data. The parameters of components in such a system are also statically tuned to operate optimally under very specific conditions. Information flow in such systems is bottom up, and gene ...
