  1. Techniques for Automatically Exploiting Passive Acoustic Sonar Data

    SBC: Lakota Technical Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N06138

    Lakota Technical Solutions, Inc. will develop a target classification capability based on emitter characteristics passively detected by ESM systems. Successful classification is based in part and fundamentally reliant upon successful emissions based target tracking. This tracking is based upon a probabilistic multi-hypothesis tracking capability which associates multiple emissions with specific tr ...

  2. Ultra Wide Bandwidth High Dynamic Range Digital ISR Receivers for the submarine force


    This effort to improve the capabilities of the ESM system will increase the reliability and reduce lifecycle support costs of the Radar Wideband (RWB) subsystem on submarines. Analog to digital converter (A/D) based digital receivers will be applied to yield improvements in Radar signal acquisition and processing. In-phase and Quadrature (I/Q) data streams will be created from which intra pulse mo ...

  3. Real-time In-situ Adaptation of Decision Parameters for Undersea Target Tracking in a Sensor Field

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N10AT038

    Detection of moving targets in spatially-variable and uncertain environments is of prime importance in maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems. However, the situational context may prohibit the placement of a single fixed long-term ISR system that can be fine-tuned to maximize performance in the area of interest. In such situations, distributed fields of passive sensor ...

  4. Man Transportable Robotic System (MTRS) Remote Digger and Hammer Chisel

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N101050

    A pneumatic hammer chisel end effector will be developed that uses a simple yet novel fluid routing system. The lightweight device is easily attached to existing MTRS arms and can generate the impact forces required to fracture concrete and packed soil. The end effector requires no modification to the operator control unit and only two connections to the MTRS: a mechanical interface to hold the to ...

  5. SCAP Content Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NIST and G2 have been on the forefront of security automation with the development of the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). However, the barrier to entry for SCAP content creation is the requirement to have in depth knowledge of the underlying specifications. This project aims to allow security experts to create SCAP content without the need to be an expert in the specification. By leve ...

  7. A Distributed and Standard based Data Warehouse and Mining System for Large-Scale Sensor Data

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: OSD10L05

    The sensor data in the area of Navy Multi-INT could be multi-modal, including acoustic images, ocean profiles, infrared data, biometric data, vehicle tracking information, and facial profiles. Textual information, including intelligence reports or chat logs, will also be considered as sensor data. It is important to develop highly scalable and effective data warehousing and mining methods for in-d ...

  8. High Productivity, Robust FPGA Programming Tool

    SBC: Dsplogic Inc            Topic: N111014

    Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are a very attractive, and often necessary, computational resource for many Digital Signal Processing (DSP) applications. Their balance of performance, power consumption, and size make them ideally suited to SWAP-constrained sensor, communication, and guidance applications. However, the lengthy FPGA development and validation cycle, with limited application p ...
