  1. Lightweight, Compact Atmospheric Gas Sensor

    SBC: Sensor Research And Development Corporation            Topic: SOCOM08005

    SRD will develop a miniaturized atmospheric gas sensor array and design a gas analyzer (sensor analyzer module, SAM) capable of accurately detecting and autonomously monitoring critical atmospheric gases in enclosed spaces. In this Phase I effort, SRD will use its current, existing technology (miniaturized sensor platform, proprietary SMO sensor coatings and advanced signal processing algorithms) ...

  2. Automated Pixel Geo-Registration for Precise Imaging

    SBC: CARR ASTRONAUTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF081070

    We study the problem of sensor calibration as it might be applied to a tactical UAV system where operability and robustness are paramount. A large number of airframes and diversity of sensor types argues for an approach that is low cost (exploiting calibration targets in the field) and applicable for various sensors. The study considers various approaches to sensor calibration and measurements e ...

  3. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF081051

    We will develop "flexible sensing" techniques that will enable a single sensor to perform the functions of both a "seeker" and a "target detection device". One set of approaches will comprise resolution enhancement and other techniques to extract target identification and tracking information, as would be provided by a "seeker", from a low resolution / high update rate sensor. Hyperacuity-based a ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. OCEAN WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER

    SBC: Ocean Wave Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR AIDS TO NAVIGATION (ATON) ARE ESSENTIAL SIGNPOSTS FOR SAFE PASSAGE ALONG COASTAL AND OFFSHORE SEAWAYS. PRESENTLY, THEIR SIGNALS ARE POWERED BY ON-SITE ENGINE GENERATORS REQUIRING CONSIDERABLE AND COSTLY MAINTENANCE. ATON AUTONOMY WILL BE GREATLY INCREASED WITH DEEP DISCHARGE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY PROVIDING THAT ON-SITE CHARGING SOURCES ARE USED. AMONG NATURALLY AVAILABLE SOURCES, THE UNCEASING ...

  6. COGNITIVE SKILL BASED CHILD-RESISTANT SAFETY BELT BUCKLE DEVICE

    SBC: Yellowstone Environmental            Topic: N/A

    A RELATIVELY UNDOCUMENTED PROBLEM OF UNAUTHORIZED RELEASE OFSAFETY BELT AND CAR SAFETY SEAT (CSS) HARNESS BUCKLES BY YOUNG CHILDREN HAS BEEN REPORTED BY PARENTS TO THE NHTSA AND TO CSS EDUCATORS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DOCUMENT THE NATURE AND EXTENT OF THE PROBLEM AND DEVELOP AND TEST COGNITIVE SKILL BASED SOLUTIONS TO IT. WORK WILL INCLUDE A SURVEY OF CSS USERS; VISUAL OBSERVATION O ...

  7. A NEW METHOD FOR LINEAR SEQUENCE GENERATOR CONFIGURATION ESTIMATION

    SBC: Cynetics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED TO IMPROVE RECEPTION OF AND SYNCHRONIZATION OF WIDEBAND SIGNALS OF UNKNOWN PARAMETERS. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THE MATHEMATICAL THEORY OF THE ESTIMATION OF GENERATOR CONFIGURATIONS FROM THEIR OUTPUTS WILL HELP TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL. A PROMISING APPROACH IS TO APPLY SHIFT-AND-ADD AND OTHER PROPERTIES OF LINEAR SEQUENCES TO THE DETERMINATION OF THE GENERATOR CONFIGURATION. A PROPOSE ...

  8. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT OF A FLIGHT INSTRUCTION TUTORING SYSTEM

    SBC: Technology Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEVELOPMENT OF A PC-BASED FLIGHT INSTRUCTION TUTORING SYSTEM WILL IMPROVE THE MOST BASIC CAPABILITIES OF AIR FORCE FLIGHT PERSONNEL, STANDARDIZE INITIAL TRAINING OF THE BASIC CONCEPTS OF FLIGHT, PROVIDE A FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF MODERN TRAINING METHODS, AND ALLOW INNOVATIONS ADDRESSING THIS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES TO BE STUDIED IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE ...
