  1. SHALLOW WATER SONAR SYSTEM

    SBC: Ocean Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPECIAL MILITARY NARROW BEAM ACOUSTIC PROJECTORS AND TRANSMISSION TECHNIQUES CAN BE EASILY ADAPTED FOR COMMERCIAL USE TO ENABLE FISHERMEN OR RESEARCHERS TO DETECT,LOCATE, AND QUANTIFY BIOLOGICAL TARGETS WITH VERY HIGH ACCURACY IN SHALLOW WATER. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A METHOD FOR PRODUCING VERY NARROW ACOUSTIC BEAMS WITH VIRTUALLY NO SIDELOBES FROM A SMALL APERTURE PROJECTOR ARRAY. ALSO ...

  2. IMPROVED AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION METHODS FOR ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO EXAMINE A VARIETY OF AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION TECHNIQUES ESPECIALLY THOSE CONCERNING RECENT WORK ON PULSE SHAPE AND ELECTRONIC SIGNAL PROCESSING TO OBTAIN IMPROVED TARGET DETECTION PERFORMANCE FOR AN ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZE IN AN AEROSOL ENVIRONMENT. BASED ON THIS STUDY A SYSTEM CONCEPT WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DEMONSTRATE THE IMPROVED AEROSOL PERFORMANCE THAT IS OBTAINABLE AND THAT RELIAB ...

  3. 3-D OBJECT RECOGNITION IN A NEURAL NETWORK THAT PERFORMS SENSOR FUSION

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE FUSION OF SENSOR DATA TO PERFORM 3-D TARGET RECOGNITION FROM 2-D VIEWS IS AN INHERENTLY COMPLEX, COMPUTE-BOUND PROBLEM CHARACTERIZED BY AN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF PIXEL DATA WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED AND INTEGRATED INTO A SINGLE COHERENT DESCRIPTION OF OBJECTS IN AN IMAGE. NEURAL NETWORKS OFFER THE PROMISE OF PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS TO COMPUTER-BOUND PROBLEMS. ATLANTIC HAS BEEN PERFORMING LOW LEVEL F ...

  4. A NEW APPROACH TO E-3 (AWACS) SENSOR DATA FUSION USING MORPHOLOGICAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT THE EVALUATION OF A PROMISING PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY, MORPHOLOGICAL FILTERING, TO THE SENSOR DATA FUSION PROBLEM. THE E-3, AWACS FUSION PROBLEM, IS A DIFFICULT ONE BECAUSE OF THE PROJECTED LARGE NUMBER OF DYNAMIC AIRCRAFT TARGETS (UP TO 4000) AND LARGE NUMER OF SENSORS (UP TO 10) BEING CONSIDERED AS SOURCES TO BE FUSED. FAST MOVING AND MANEUVERING TARGETS OBSERVED ...

  5. INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS FOR FORCE SUPPORT FROM SPACE

    SBC: Berner, Lanphier & Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPERATIONAL MILITARY FORCES ARE IN NEED OF TIMELY, ALL-WEATHER TARGETING DATA. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE OF FORCES IN THE EUROPEAN THEATER, WHICH NEED TARGETING SUPPORT TO MEET THE OBJECTIVE OF THE NEW FOLLOW ON FORCES ATTACK (FOFA) STRATEGY FOR THE DEFENSE OF EUROPE. WE PROPOSE AN ASSESSMENT OF THE UTILITY AND FEASIBILITY OF A SPACE-BASED, PHASED ARRAY SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR (SAR) FOR PROVIDING ...

  6. TESTING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF USING CW SENSORS IN THE SCPS SYSTEM

    SBC: Blanchard & Co Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT INVOLVES THE USE OF CWREAL TIME SENSORS IN THE USAF SCPS SHELTER SYSTEM. IT TESTSTHE USEFULNESS OF HAVING REAL TIME SENSORS BY EXAMINING THE ANTICIPATED EFFECT ON LIFE CYCLE COST. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY EVALUATING ALL AVAILABLE SENSOR SYSTEMS, CURRENT PROCEDURES, AND DEVELOPING NEW INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES. THE EFFECT ON TRAINING AND ACCESS TIMES WILL BE CA ...

  7. APPLICATION OF OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY FOR REMOTE TEMPERATURE SENSING

    SBC: CAELUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    REDUCTION OF SATELLITE RADIANCE DATA TO TEMPERATURE PROFILES INVOLVES BOTH DIFFICULT MATHEMATICAL INVERSION ANALYSIS AS WELL AS COMPLICATED DATA PROCESSING. RECENTLY, THE APPLICATION OF THE OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY REPRESENTS A NOVEL APPROACH WHICH PROVIDE A SOLUTION FREE FROM THE NEED OF EXTERNALLY-IMPOSED CONSTRAINTS (KING, 1987). THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A SYSTEMATIC TECHNICAL ...

  9. MATERIALS FOR SUPPRESSION OF SHOCK PROPAGATION

    SBC: Cemcom Research Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CARRIED OUT TO DEMONSTRATE THE UNIQUE VALUE OF CHEMICALLY BONDED CERAMICS (CBC) AS MATERIALS FOR FABRICATION OF MECHANICAL DETERRENTS TO SYMPATHETIC DETONATION OF MUNITIONS. CBC MATERIALS WILL BE FORMULATED AND CHARACTERIZED FOR SHOCK ATTENUATING PROPERTIES AND FRAGMENT CAPTURE OR VELOCITY REDUCTION PROPERTIES. THE FINAL MATERIAL IS LIKELY TO BE A BINARY MATERIAL (TWO DIFFERENT TY ...

  10. 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 ...
