  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: Perceptive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I effort, the PI2 team will perform a set of technology and algorithmic trade studies with the goal of finding innovative new system concepts for a VPHS using all digital processing, and with extremely low latency (at most one frame) from light into the sensor to light out of the display. We approach this attempting to meet the system threshold and objective goals as stated ...

  4. High Quality/Low Dimension Data for Sensor Integration

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: This project addresses the development and evaluation of high-quality low-dimensional (HQLD) sensor data selection and fusion (SDSF) algorithms. The objective is to develop algorithms that process the data from multiple sensors to reduce dimensionality while retaining the information content of the full-dimension data. An HQLD-SDSF algorithm will be developed within the context of a like ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: VOCI TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Despite decades of research, machine hearing continues to be far less robust than human hearing. The difference is especially noticeable in reverberant environments which pose a critical limitation on the general utility of Human Language Technology. Voci Technologies Incorporated (Voci) is the leading small business developing accelerated Human Language Technology based solutions. Voci ...

  8. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  9. Spectrum Sensing and Sharing by Cognitive Radios in Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) Systems

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: AF15AT23

    ABSTRACT: Echo Ridge (ER) proposes to design an architecture and key algorithms to support spectrum sharing for PNT that focuses on spectrally congested and high likelihood operational scenarios. The architecture defines the new functionality/necessary improvements to the PNT elements (broadcasts satellite and MGUE DSA operation), spectrum sensing elements (signal sensing detection/characterizatio ...

  10. Enabling Moving Target Hand-off in GPS-Denied Environments

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF15AT34

    ABSTRACT: This STTR Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of distributed relative pose estimation framework that enables target handoff in a swarm of UAV platforms operating in GPS-denied and bandwidth constrained environment. In the proposed framework, UAV platforms continually update their relative pose estimates based on a variety of intra-platform and inter-platfor ...
