  1. High Performance UAV System Design Based on High Power Microturbine Technology

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a high package volume with sufficient fuel capacity for hover duration of about one hour. Thrust from m ...

  2. An Infrared Polarimetric Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor for Low False Alarm Rate Target Detection

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...

  3. Linearly Oscillating Miniature Internal Combustion Engine (MICE)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Micro Aerial Vehicle (¿AVs) will open up a wide range of new missions for the US Armed Forces, but also present a new set of technical challenges. The power and propulsion system will have a significant impact on the ultimate capabilities and range of missions of ¿AVs. While advanced battery technology can provide good propulsion performance for ¿AVs, miniature internal combustion engines can ...

  4. Low Cost Avalanche Photodiodes and Photodiode Arrays

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon avalanche photodiodes are among the most sensitive optical detectors available today. It 11as been shown that large area APDs are potentially an excellent alternative to photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) in applications such as LIDAR, nuclear medicine, physics research and nuclear radiation measurement instrumentation. They can offer improved performance based on their compact size, solid state ...

  5. Information Fusion for Onboard and Offboard Avionics

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this research is to define and validate an Avionics Information Fusion System (AIFS) which optimally combines onboard and offboard data. We propose an architecture containing an offboard data processor to extract data relevant to the mission, and a set of fusion modules for recursively associating sensor reports, tracking targets, and classifying targets. These modul ...

  6. Bayes' Nets for the Dynamic Database

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    recent advances in sensor technology have enabled collection of vast quantities of battlefield information. Warfighters will soon gain global access to this huge volume of information. Rather than construct separate redundant, and inconsistent situation estimates, a Dynamic Database can reduce the data to a comprehensive, self-consistent representation of the environment. This proposal explores ...

  7. Feature-Based ATR with SAR/FLIR Sensor Fusion

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a two-pronged program for developing Air Force capability in SAR/FLIR sensor fusion for automatic target recognition (ATR). In the first component of this program, we will design, implement and demonstrate a sequence of increasingly sophisticated SAR/FLIR fusion systems, each tuned to maximize the joint benefit of these complementary sensing modes for a different level of algorithm com ...

  8. Low Cost Deposition of YBCO Films for Advanced HTS Conductor Applications

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This program develops and demonstrates an innovative, low cost, solution and non-vacuum based process for deposition of YBCO on continuous, textured metal tape substrates. It is easily scaleable for long lengths of continuous conductors, and is an inherently more cost effective as it is scaled.Recent advances in the deposition of thick YBCO films have demonstrated that fabricating practical, long ...

  9. Actively Cooled Minority-Carrier Devices for Power Conditioners

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    New power semiconductor device performance is limited by cooling because high heat-flux cooling systems have not matched their increased power density. Therefore, real designs rarely achieve device ratings. American Superconductor (ASC) demonstrated CryoPower+, which cools a variety of power MOSFET topologies by direct immersion in coolants from 77-300K, with boiling where appropriate. CryoPower ( ...

  10. A System to Enhance Team Decision-Making Peformance

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In complex human-machine systems such as military command and control (C2), corporatestrategic planning, air traffic control, and computer-supported collaborative work, the scope and complexity of the task often require that the decision-making function be distributed over several humans organized in distributed or collocated teams. For this project, we propose to enhance a proven research tool, ...
