  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  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. Development of a New Adaptability Measure

    SBC: Pelavin Research Institute            Topic: N/A

    The military services are currently transitioning to the information age. That transition is placing demands on military personnel to adapt to new ways of thinking about and performing their jobs. Adaptability will be essential for survival in the year 2010. American business, like the military services, are highly dynamic today. Downsizing, technological advancements, and the open ...

  7. An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

    SBC: Polymer Bridge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed in 1 eight-hour day; and 4) be cost-competitive on an installed cost basis. This bridge will be buil ...
