The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Rapid construction of 3-D Satellite models from limited amounts of 2-D imagery

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF181020

    Increases in space traffic have caused an ever-growing need to recognize, track, and determine the operational state of both known and unknown satellites in-situ. Imagery from ground and/or space-based observation platforms provide a convenient and versatile data source for such characterization but is often limited in both quantity and quality. Rapid and automated 3D reconstruction of satellite m ...

  2. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: SecureMarking, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    Reconfigurable authentication unit for reading security codes printed onto parts. Our technology uses upconverting nanoparticles (UCNPs) to print durable security codes onto authentic products. We have developed a working reading apparatus that can scan codes printed onto objects with the dimensions of a credit card. This proposal will support development of a reader apparatus that is versatile en ...

  3. Global Surveillance Augmentation Using Commercial Satellite Imaging Systems

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF153001

    ABSTRACT:A system is proposed to access, collate and process imagery from multiple small satellite constellations. The imagery is fused and registered to a common reference so that exploitation algorithms, such as change detection and event monitoring, are reported with accurate geographic coordinates. The system, called SatTel, is implemented as open source software that is designed to run on the ...

  4. SIGMA: Speedy Imagery Geo-registration and Motion Analysis

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    ABSTRACT: VSI proposes the development of the SIGMA (Speedy Imagery Geo-registration and Motion Analysis) system, which will address three key requirements by the end of Phase II: (i) adapt to different type of sensors, sensor-configurations and sensor operating conditions, (ii) handle large amount of data in real-time or close to real-time using limited resources, and (iii) operate under conditi ...

  5. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  6. Speedy Sparse Bundle Adjustment for Video/Image Sequences

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    ABSTRACT: VSI proposes a flexible sensor estimation framework for airborne calibration processing of image streams over long time periods. The components of the framework will consist of existing software and libraries. The plugin-based framework provides flexibility to switch the components easily. The core of the framework is a belief propagation engine to globally optimize the sensor parameter ...

  7. Long-distance 3-D Reconstruction from EO/IR Imagery

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131133

    ABSTRACT: While the state of the art in both single-image reconstruction algorithms and multi-view structure from motion algorithms have advanced considerably in recent years, little work has been performed which leverages the constraints relied upon by both approaches. When an area of interest is imaged from a long distance with little angular diversity in viewpoint, multi-view constraints alon ...

  8. Multi-Band Airborne SAR/GMTI System Development

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF093138

    A multi-band airborne synthetic aperture radar and ground moving-target indicating (SAR/GMTI) radar system will be designed and developed that will utilize multiple frequency bands to improve the radar imaging and target detection performance in various clutter environments. Applied Radar’s existing wideband digital receiver/exciter (DREX) hardware is inherently capable of supporting radar appli ...

  9. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  10. Enhanced, All-Weather Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Sense and Avoid (SAA)

    SBC: FLIGHT SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071257

    This SBIR Phase I proposal requests $99739 for Flight Safety Technologies, Inc. to investigate the feasibility and all-weather capability of a novel radar concept as an active, non-cooperative SAA sensor for UAVs. The concept radar, which we call Unicorn, is a narrow-band pulsed radar operating around a center frequency of 5.145 GHz in the aviation C-band, which has been approved for this develop ...
