  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. OAV Repositioning Resource-Allocating Tracker (ORRATr)

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: SB031013

    The development of inexpensive unmanned aircraft will soon bring the opportunity to place persistent organic hovering sensors at key locations in support of intelligence gathering, targeting, and force protection missions. As many of the sensor packages flown on these assets will be line-of-sight dependent, careful platform placement will be crucial for sensor effectiveness. In order to assure g ...

  5. Link-Clustering Techniques for Group Dismount Tracking

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: SB041024

    Detection and tracking of dismounts in foliage is difficult due to low target speed, foliage attenuation, small target RCS, internal clutter motion, forest animals, and target motion dynamics. The detection of individual dismounts reliably with reasonable false alarm rates will be extremely difficult in some circumstances and may require extended periods of observation. However if dismounts trav ...

  6. Low Cost Fabrication of 2G Wires for AC Applications

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: ST041002

    Second Generation (2G) High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) wires based on the YBCO coated conductor are expected to find use in many commercial and military applications not accessible to the First Generation (1G) BSCCO HTS wires. However, the use of these 2G wires in certain applications, such as synchronous generators with both superconducting rotor field windings and armature windings, requ ...

  7. KNowledge-based Organizational Modeling Environment (KNOME)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB041020

    Methods are needed to understand, map, and measure the flow of information in C2 operations centers, taking into account the value of that information and the effects of information value on mission performance. The Knowledge-based Organizational Modeling Environment (KNOME) will combine task-based models of C2 organizational structure and operations with innovative techniques for characterizing ...

  8. Optimization of Flywheel Energy Density Utilizing a Composite Hub

    SBC: BEACON POWER CORP.            Topic: SB032048

    The proposal objective is to develop a flywheel energy storage system capable of achieving its maximum theoretical specific energy density, while being capable of repeated high peak-power demands. The key to achieving this objective is the development of a composite hub capable of supporting an optimized high-speed composite rim. A flywheel offers significant advantages for short duration pea ...

  9. The RVMHD-A Re-entry Air Driven MHD Power Supply

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB032031

    In SBIR Topic SB032-031, DARPA has identified its interest in power generation on a re-entry vehicle using the air encountered by the vehicle as the working fluid for the generator. In response, this Proposal, based on an extensive 1964-1968 USAF program to develop a high power Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) re-entry vehicle using a 450 kilowatt MHD generator driven by the re-entry heated air ...

  10. 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 ...
