  1. Single Wall Carbon Nanotube Printed Integrated Circuits

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB082014

    Printed integrated circuits (PIC) allow us to take advantage of substrates that otherwise could not be utilized in traditional fabrication techniques. This enables the production of circuits that are transparent, flexible, and conformal, opening a wide range of new applications for large area sensors, integrated/embedded electronics, medical diagnostics, and health monitoring. Leveraging our exten ...

  3. UBER-HEB: Universal Biologically-inspired Environment for Research: Hierarchical Ersatz Brain

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: ST081006

    In Phase I of UBER-HEB, the Aptima team made significant progress designing a non-von Neumann hierarchical universal learning system based on the Ersatz Brain Architecture (EBA). An experiment using an EBA implementation showed emergence of module assemblies, a critical step in validation. In Phase II, we propose to focus sharply on an important, well-characterized problem ideally suited to the EB ...

  4. VISION: Video Identification of Structures, Intentions, Objects, and Networks

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: SB082021

    Decision support tools for target identification and alert generation depend upon the classification of static and moving objects. Existing methods for object classification rely primarily on static information available in single-frame images. The data from long-range video surveillance assets are usually not sufficient to distinguish the objects from one another, and even if high-resolution data ...

  5. Automated Collaboration Collection & Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers used for incident response, tactical military activities, and air traffic management can all be characterized as having multiple teams of individuals, each with defined responsibilities, interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. Effective coordination and collaboration is critical in these organizations; ho ...

  6. Upconverting Films

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB072034

    Infrared (IR) detection approaches have required significant development of highly sensitive arrays for a wide range of area. How to engineer materials to achieve high IR sensitivity and be deposited onto lenses, goggles, or other substrates are challenging and important to military and commercial applications. For many military missions, a cost-effective, ultra-compact, and efficient infrared d ...

  7. Metal Hydride Energy Source for HALE Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB082064

    Busek Co. Inc. and the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) of Pennsylvania State University propose to develop a metal hydride based power system for High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) aircraft. This system will produce mechanical or electrical energy that can be used to drive a propeller. In Phase I, we selected the most promising propellant combination and designed a system around it. We estim ...

  8. Tool to Improve Collaboration between Operators and Reachback Analysts (TICORA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB101005

    Modern full-spectrum operations require that military decision-makers possess an understanding of the human social, cultural, and behavioral (HSCB) dynamics of a region so they can plan effective courses of action (COAs). To ensure that COAs are congruent with the HSCB aspects of an intended audience while effectively achieving military objectives, decision-makers need to engage expert analysts to ...

  9. A System for Automated Real-time Collaboration Assessment for Distributed Environments (ARCADE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB093007

    As mission needs evolve, specialties and resources can be brought to bear through cross-agency or coalition collaborations. Each collaborator who joins the team brings along his or her training, doctrine, and processes, which introduces collaboration challenges. An automated capability to assess the effectiveness of collaboration in real time would help to ensure that command teams are collaborati ...

  10. Anti-reflective Nanowire Coatings for IR Optics

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: A08030

    Nano Terra proposes a novel approach utilizing nanowires to decrease the retroreflectivity of night vision systems. We will develop nanowire GRIN coatings for IR optics and, in particular, germanium windows. The coatings will minimize or eliminate retroflection at visible wavelengths, preserve or improve transmission in the infrared regions, and will be durable enough for field use. By applying na ...
