  2. Probabilistic and Relational Inferences in Dynamic Environments (PRIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST081004

    Uncertainty on the modern battlefield makes mission planning and decision making extremely complex for field commanders. Mission planners can be aided by initial and ongoing situation assessment, future state estimation, assessment of the current plan"s probability of success, what-if analysis, and suggestions for decisions. At present, few automated tools exist to provide mission planners with th ...

  3. Passive Collision Detection for UAV Sense and Avoid Systems

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: ST081005

    Currently, Unmanned Aircraft Systems face limitations on their utilization in civil airspace because they do not have the capability to sense and avoid (SAA) other air traffic. Ability to detect collisions with low False Alarm and False Negative Rates are crucial for SAA. In Phase I, UtopiaCompression in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles successfully developed methods to ...

  4. 3D Model Construction from a Micro Air Vehicle

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    The innovative integration of two emerging technologies, computer vision systems and Un-manned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's), can dramatically improve the capabilities of the UAV for real-world urban missions. Computer vision is being developed for robotic planetary exploration. UAV's are being developed for low-altitude military reconnaissance and surveillance in urban settings. The application of c ...

  5. Low Loss Optic Fiber Sparse Tapped Delay Module

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: ST051006

    Leveraging Agiltron's recent breakthrough in low loss/low cost solid-sate fiberoptic digital delay lines and variable splitter, we propose to develop a new type of affordable reconfigurable sparse delay line module. The proposed approach overcomes the deficiencies in limited delay time and excessive loss associated with electronic sparse delay line modules and provides sufficiently long delays an ...

  6. Wide Field of View Electronically Stearable Imaging Sensors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: ST051004

    This proposal provides a breakthrough solution to flexibly direct the field of view of an imaging system over a wide acceptance angle, having significant advantages over other candidate technologies. The innovation is based on an unconventional beam steering technology covering a wide angle ranging over at high speed with low power consumption and in a compact and lightweight construction. The ...

  7. High Current Photodetector

    SBC: ARCHCOM TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: ST051007

    For many communication applications, the demand for more bandwidth is a never ending problem. Military system applications often can exceed commercial demands by an order of magnitude or more as SIGINT and IMINT data collection and transmission are keys to our National Security. Optical delivery of RF signals is an increasingly important topic for applications including RF antenna remoting, sign ...

  8. Uncooled, 10-KHz LWIR FPA using Interferometry

    SBC: NOVASPECTRA INC.            Topic: ST051005

    We propose to develop an uncooled focal plane array (FPA) with a frame rate of at least 10 KHz and a high sensitivity in the long wave infrared (LWIR, 8-12 micron) for tracking fast-moving targets or imaging fast events. It consists of 256x256 micro interferometers as sensing elements, each of which transduces the incident LWIR into an interference beam of near IR that is detected by an ordinary h ...

  9. Robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV

    SBC: ETOVIA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    We shall investigate and implement robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV application scenarios. Automatic pose determination and extraction of 3D structure of the environment are critical to autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance of SMAVs in constrained and crowded environments. Extracting such state information under various constraints (low quality video, sensor payload limitations, minimal onboar ...
