  1. Advanced Tracking Techniques for FOPEN GMTI Radars

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The utility of continuously tracking vehicles in a battlefield has been demonstrated during the Gulf War and other recent conflicts. However, the ability to achieve reliable continuous tracking in many environments will require the use of FOPEN radar andefficient use of sensor resources. In this effort we extend current research to include heterogeneous terrain and apply this model to simulations. ...

  3. ACHIEVING COMMERICALLY-VIABLE ROBUST VIDEO-BASED UNSTRUCTURED SCENE UNDERSTANDING SYSTEMS

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Today's commercial video surveillance and monitoring (VSAM) systems are capable of producing enormous video streams that are over-whelming for human operators to review. But with automated intelligent interpretation of the imagery we can track and classifymoving objects of interest, collect spatial and temporal motion statistics, and detect anomalous behaviors. We propose to transition image under ...

  4. Transport of Underwater Sensor Data

    SBC: BENTHOS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Undersea sensors require means of transporting data to an end-user. Acoustic modem networks are being developed for this purpose, but they are limited by battery power, network priorities, and requirements for clandestine operations. We propose a systemsapproach to reducing the impact on the network of moving large volumes of data, using both low rate and high rate acoustic telemetry, combined w ...

  5. Development of a Truly Lattice-Matched III-Nitride Technology for

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to implement a lattice matched III-Nitride technology using existing substrates. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocationfree III-Nitrides for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...

  6. Organic Solar Cells Using Star Conductive Polymers

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new class of organic photovoltaics is proposed based on star conducting polymers. These materials will provide superior hole and/or electron transfer properties that determine the ultimate efficiency of the devices. The star polymer architecture employslinear conjugated arms radiating from a centrosymmetric core, and therfore, unlike the linear arms alone, facilitate carrier transport in three d ...

  7. Biomimetic Inspired Fibers, Materials, and Properties

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The complex biological processing and spinning operations used by the silkworm and spider to create silk fibers lead to a morphology that yields exceptionally high combinations of strength, stiffness, and extensibility. In this proposed STTR effort,Foster-Miller will join with Professor David Kaplan and the Biotechnology Center at Tufts University in an effort to produce films from silk that pos ...

  8. High-Damping Composite Materials for Advanced Aerospace Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation addressed in this proposal is an advanced composite material that provides a high degree of damping with little sacrifice of stiffness or strength. By integrating the functions of load-bearing and vibration suppression, this high-dampingcomposite material (HDCM) will enable the elimination of parasitic structural components. This simplification will improve the reliability of stru ...

  9. Design, Fabrication and Testing of a Versatile Outfitting Attachment System Kit for Naval Sandwich Panels

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites and the University of Massachusetts-Lowell will conduct an analytical and experimental investigation of technology alternatives for mounting hardware to composite sandwich panels used in shipboard structures. The KCI/UML team will workwith Bath Iron Works to ensure that attachment system solutions developed during the program are compatible with demanding and diverse needs associa ...

  10. A Revolutionary Hybrid Pultrusion/VARTM Process for Making Very Large Two-Sided Composite Structures Exhibiting Bending-Twisting Coupling

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites and Stanford University propose to design, develop and demonstrate a prototype bending-twisting-coupled composite rudder for the DDG 51. The Phase I design and process development effort will include classical laminated plate theory,finite element analysis and VARTM mold flow analysis. Test structures will be fabricated by two different methods during Phase I. First, an approximat ...
