  1. MATRIX-ADDRESSABLE LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAYS FOR VISUAL LANDING AIDS

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to use the newest advance in the technology of Ferroelctric Liquid Crystal (FLC) displays so that they can be used for Visual Landing Aids as well as other applications. Currently FLC's suffer from serious mechanical and temperature limitations due to the fact that mechanical stress alters the structure of the liquid crystal material. We propose to stabilize the ce ...

  2. Ultra Lethal Targeting by Optical Recognition ULTOR

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    1The Navy desires to demonstrate an optical processing system capable of target aim point selection in an infrared image, in real time. Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS) has demonstrated with optical processing: aim point selection in visible imagery, in clutter; target recognition in infrared imagery; and small feature recognition internal to a target, in simulated IR imagery. We propose to co ...

  3. TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C.

    SBC: The Associated Corp            Topic: N/A

    TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C. THE CURRENT TLAM-C USES A TERRAIN MAPPING RADAR ALTIMETER AND CORRELATES THE SENSED AREA AT KEY WAYPOINTS WITH A STORED DIGITAL REPRESENTATION OF THE TERRAIN AREA AT THE WAYPOINTS TO PROVIDE MID-COURSE AND TERMINAL GUIDANCE CORRECTION TO THE INERTIAL NA ...

  8. EMBEDDED TRANSPUTER-BASED SYSTEM DESIGN

    SBC: Formal Systems Design &            Topic: N/A

    TO DATE, MOST SAFETY-CRITICAL APPLICATIONS OF SPECIAL PURPOSE PROBLEM-ORIENTED MULTIPROCESSOR CONFIGURATIONS HAVE RELIED ON WELLKNOWN, SIMPLISTIC STRATEGIES FOR ENSURING SATISFIABILITY OF CONSTRAINTS SUCH AS FREEDOM FROM DEADLOCK AND LIVELOCK, FAIRNESS AND REAL-TIME RESPONSIVENESS; HOWEVER SUCH STRATEGIES ARE OFTEN INEFFICIENT IN IMPLEMENTATION. WE WILL DEMONSTRATE THAT MATHEMATICAL THEORIES OF CO ...

  9. INFRARED/MILLIMETER WAVE DETECTORS USING HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS

    SBC: Hse Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INFRARED/MILLIMETER WAVE DETECTOR USING THE BULK, NON-LINEAR CURRENT-VOLTAGE CHARACTERISTICS OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS. SUCH DEVICES, WHICH ARE INFLUENCED BY INTERGRAIN WEAK LINKS, CAN CONVERT (RECTIFY), AND THEREFORE DETECT, HIGH FREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC SIGNALS. THIS NON-BOLOMETRIC, BUT EXTREMELY BROADBAND RESPONSE, IS A ...

  10. AUM/UUV-a Virtual Environment for Undersea Telepresence

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Time-delays and limited sensory feedback of remote telerobotic systems tend to disorient teleoperators and dramatically decrease the operators\' performance. To eliminate these effects, Innovation Associates will design a Virtual Environment for Undersea Telepresence (VEUTel) system. The VEUTel system will correct the problems associated with low band- width feedback by totally immersing the opera ...
