  6. Multiphysics-based Sensor Fusion

    SBC: Guerci Consulting LLC            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: A new approach to multisensor fusion is proposed that utilizes a knowledge-aided (KA) multi-physics model as the main fusion engine, as opposed to traditional purely statistical methods. The new Multi-Physics Sensor Fusion (MPSF) is enabled byadvances in high performance computing, knowledge-aided (KA) processing, and new techniques in multi-physics modeling. Traditional sensor fusion ou ...

  7. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Acylindrical Lens Development

    SBC: IRFLEX CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: Laser source technology in the mid-infrared region, 2um to beyond 10um, is progressing rapidly. Quantum cascade laser (QCL) is one of these new sources, which cover the whole mid-infrared spectrum with high-power and good wall-plug efficiencies. Due to the micron sized and non-circular cross-section of the active region, the laser beam quickly diverges in the direction perpendicular to t ...

  9. Information Geometry beyond the Exponential Family

    SBC: FiskeTech, LLC            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: Information geometry treats families of probability distributions as curves or surfaces in an abstract space of probability distributions. Theoretical results from this field exist in multiple application domains and at least some real systems employ data fusion techniques based on this research. We propose the combination of techniques that have been developed and applied for different ...

  10. Cortical Processing Approaches to Mitigation of Reverberation in Speech

    SBC: IN-DEPTH ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Vocal communication in the real world often takes place in complex and noisy acoustic environments. For applications such as mobile communications or use of automated speech/speaker recognition algorithms on recorded data, the presence of noise and reverberation significantly degrades the quality and intelligibility of speech and severely hampers the performance of these systems. Approac ...
