  1. Automated Airborne Measurement of Ozone

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ozone is arguably the most important trace gas in the atmosphere, and improved monitoring of ozone throughout the atmosphere is essential. This Phase 2 project continues the development of a complete, automated system for measuring ozone from on board commercial aircraft. There is already one program within NOAA, CAAMP (Commercial Aircraft Atmospheric Measurement Program), for measuring a variety ...

  2. Augmenting CORBA with High Assurance Data Integrity Mechanisms

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate goal of the proposed R&D is to design, develop and validate innovative CORBA-based software security services and compatible hardware architectures which provide high assurance for multi-level secure (MLS) network applications. The proposed approach is innovative in that it is based on the emerging OMG Security Services Specification (SSS) plus a proprietary technique for maintaining ...

  3. Multiple Beam Antennas with Semi-Constrained Beamformers

    SBC: AJK TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    A mobile satellite communications link operating from vehicles on-the-move would provide significant benefits to the Marine Corps in the battlefield environment. The antenna should be capable of simultaneous and rapid tracking of two satellites while the vehicle is in motion over rough terrain, as well as providing ultra-wide bandwidth (C-band through Ku-band), medium to high gain, low profile, ru ...

  4. Novel Method for Strengthening Sapphire at Elevated Temperatures

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a novel process to increase the strength of sapphire at elevated temperatures. The resulting strength increase will alleviate the adverse effects of frictional heating of sapphire windows. Frictional heating can initiate a c-axis strength loss, leading to premature failure. The Aspen process will uniformly implant silicon atoms through the entire window, as ...

  5. Image Processing for Sonar Active Classification


    This Phase I SBIR proposal is aimed at developing and assessing the feasibility of Image Processing Techniques to distinguish between submarine and non-submarine in Active Sonar Echoes. Image Processing Techniques have proven to be highly effective in detecting objects in cluttered backgrounds using other sensors such as Synthetic Aperture Radar, Infrared Sensors, and Lasers. The highly reverberan ...

  6. Advanced Temporal Discrimination Techniques for Shipboard IRST


    This Phase I SBIR proposal is aimed at developing and assessing the feasibility P of a new approach to track discrimination for shipboard IRST sensors. The proposed approach combines two complementary signal processing technologies; single scan discrimination and an innovative geometry-based technique that accomplishes the equivalent of track-before-detect (TBD) processing using significantly le ...

  7. Biofouling Monitor

    SBC: BRIDGER SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Bridger Scientific, Inc. proposed to develop an inexpensive, real time monitor which utilizes proven surface, g techniques to measure both microbial and abiotic fouling on surfaces exposed to coolant seawater. The monitor will be designed as a small insertion probe, capable of being water pipelines. Real time data generated by the ...

  8. Improved Mid-Frequency Statistical Energy Analysis Modeling Procedures


    Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA)is currently used to predict high-frequency airborne and structureborne noise and vibration for ships, aircraft, aerospace systems, and automobiles, while finite element analysis (FEA) is used for low-frequencies. A mid-frequency region exists where neither technique gives accurate predictions. The study being proposed will develop modeling procedures that a ...

  9. Advanced Absolute Radiometers Using Superconducting Transition Thermometers


    In our Phase 1 work we were able to replicate and build on recent results at NIST with superconducting transition (SCT) thermometers, which suggested that dramatic improvements may be achieved in detectivity and range of application, of cryogenic electrical substitution radiometers. Cryo-ESR's are widely used as the most accurate absolute standards of radiative flux and irradiance. In Phase 2, we ...

  10. A Standard Lidar Interface for Wind and Aerosol Profiling from Commercial

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lidar systems offer considerable promise for the acquisition of a variety of atmospheric variables with very high spatial and temporal resolution from airborne platforms. Ground-based lidar systems have been demonstrated that measure aerosols, water vapor, and ozone, and airborne windsensing lidar have been flown on several military aircraft. The growing number of commercial airliners, however, of ...
