  1. A Stereo Camera System for Measuring Coastal Currents

    SBC: 3SRM INC.            Topic: 84

    Rip currents cause multiple drowning deaths each year as swimmers are often unaware of the location and strength of coastal currents. Currently, ocean safety officials do not have an affordable and reliable commercial system which can measure coastal currents. The goal of this Phase I study is to test a stereo camera system to measure the speed, direction, and location of alongshore currents and ...

  2. Climate Impact Visualization Tools using 3D City for Community-Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 93

    To build a climate-smart and resilient nation, we need to foster a climate-literate public that understands its vulnerabilities to a changing climate and makes informed decisions. A core component of this challenge is to develop simple, intuitive and high-impact visualizations of climate data--data that is and will be made available through the President’s Climate Data Initiative--for education ...

  3. A Low-Cost Hybrid Ultrasonic-Radio Frequency (RF) Sensor System for Characterization of Composite Materials

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), is developing a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-radio frequency (RF) sensor (HURFS) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system to assess most structural issues while simultaneously providing feedback on the layer thickness and RF properties of composite, non-conductive materials in multi-layer stacks. The HURFS approach combines the u ...

  4. Adaptive Compression of Telemetry Data using Application Specific Dictionaries

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: MDA12012

    During Phase I, Vadum developed a novel combination of lossless predictors and compression techniques that successfully increased compression on a government furnished telemetry data stream and demonstrated that even greater compression was achievable on the video stream. In Phase II, Vadum proposes to implement an In-Line Compression Solution (ICS) that delivers robust, high rate compression wit ...

  5. Advanced Techniques for Lossless Compression of Target Vehicle Telemetry

    SBC: BATTLEFIELD TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: MDA12012

    Battlefield Telecommunications Systems proposes to build low delay low complexity lossless compression software framework and hardware prototype to be integrated in the telemetry system of a target vehicle test bed. The proposed compression algorithm is specially designed for target vehicle telemetry data, designed to reduce the dataset redundancy through the prediction by extracting the characte ...

  7. Innovative Designs for Reliable Electro-Explosive Ordnance Devices

    SBC: SYSTEMS ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: MDA12031

    Missiles, use electro-explosive devices (EEDs) to perform mulitple functions during operation. This effort seeks ways to improve on the EED"s reliability and lower the failure or inadvertent activation rate of these devices. During Phase I, SEA CORP investigated replacing EEDs with commercial off the shelf (COTS) automotive airbag inflators to perform the required pneumatic functions of variou ...

  8. Feature Based Machine Leaning

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: MDA12028

    The bulk filtering algorithm is designed to suppress or eliminate uninteresting objects from a sensor data stream allowing sensor management systems to focus finite resources more effectively on objects of interest. During Phase II Vadum will carry out a series of demonstrations showing the incremental integration of their bulk filter approach within a high fidelity lab environment. Vadum will a ...

  9. A Novel Orthogonal Chaos-Based Radar Waveform with Optimized Receiver Filtering

    SBC: POC TECH GROUP LLC            Topic: MDA12002

    To achieve the goal of finding radar signal waveforms for supporting target information and deducing sensor-independent attributes, we propose to use a novel chaos-based orthogonal radar signal waveform with matched-filter-like (or adaptive) pulse compression processing for improving target detection. An open-source-and open-architecture prototype platform is proposed to enable performance analys ...
