  1. Automated Accurate Aircraft Weighing System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, an innovative aircraft weighing system based on a set of piezopolymar film pad sensors is described. The wieghing system, which would operate automatically as the aircraft taxi over it, would be unobtrusive, accurate, and reliable. These sensor pads could be integrated into the flight deck surface below the grated rubber surface finish. These thin (20-30 mils) piezopolymer sensing pads ...

  2. Three Dimentional Target Location From Video Images

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are strong motivations for the development of accurate, efficient algorithms for the three-dimensional location of stationary or moving targets from one or more video sensors. In this proposal we describe an effort to accomplish this task by exploiting ALPHATECH's unique expertise in all related technology areas: extraction of information from imagery, multi-object tracking, three-dimens ...

  3. Recovery of Pyrotechnic Ingredients Using Supercritical Fluids

    SBC: APHIOS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Many pyrotechnics contain valuable resources which could be used in commercial applications, for example metals (e.g. magnesium, aluminum); metallic salts of copper, strontium, and barium; oxidizer (e.g. sodium nitrate, potassium Perchlorate); binders such as viton, and dyes which have reclaimed value. The Navy is seeking technology which can recover the valuable ingredients from pyrotechnic flar ...

  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. 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 ...

  6. Affordable Multi-Color IR Detectors for Navy Fuses


    Current Navy infrared proximity fuses use single band MWIR detectors to provide an affordable, reliable, and compact fuse which is effective against high-signature plume-dominated powered targets. However, the current fuse is ineffective against unpowered air targets whose signature is dominated by warm body thermal emission. Atlantic Aerospace, a leader in areas of signal processing and multi- ...

  7. Very Low Bit-Rate Error-Resilient Video

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aware will develop a preliminary design for an operationally effective, scalable, error-resilient video communications system for the real-time one-way transmission of video over wireless channels having a raw (uncorrected) data rate ranging from 64 Kbps to 1.5 Mbs. The work will leverage Aware's state-of-the-art wavelet-based video compression algorithms which are currently being applied to both ...

  8. Scalable Real-Time Video Compression for Data Link Applications

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop a preliminary design for an operationally effective, scalable, real-time wavelet-based compression system for data link applications that can process still frames, continuous line scanned imagery and video sequences. The system will feature a single decoder design capable of decompressiong any of the image formats; a common compressed data representation (bitstream); dyna ...

    SBC: BENTHOS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Benthos has proprietary technology that can provide small, high performance thrusters for use on undersea systems. Benthos, Inc. proposes a development effort to replace the thruster technology, developed in the 1970s, currently in use on U.S. Navy undersea vehicles, with state-of-the-art thrusters based on this technology. Test prototype vehicles outfitted with thrusters incorporating this techno ...

  10. A Portable, Reagentless Spectral Analyzer for Rapid Diagnosis of Campylobacter Enteritis and Shigella Dysentery

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

    A portable fluorometric spectral analyzer for rapid field or shipboard diagnosis of Campylobacter enteritis and Shigella dysentery Is proposed for Phase I feasibility demonstration. All living cells are fluorescent and exhibit "fingerprint" spectral patterns that allow for their detection and Identification. The Campylobacter and Shigella bacteria have specific fluorescent patterns that may ...
