  1. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric lenses focusing system and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA) developed by Spectrum Magnetics, LLC (SM). The focusing system project the RF signal onto its focus plane. A novel FPDA based on emerging spintronic and met ...

  2. A Cognitive Capture System for Modeling and Tracking Neural Synchrony

    SBC: Neuromatters LLC            Topic: OSD10HS3

    There is at present a lack of portable, practical and non-invasive sensing platforms to: a. understand, detect and present neural events triggered by narratives; b. to derive cognitive interpretations of a story and link them to semantic interpretations, the story"s function and/or the storyteller"s intent. Based on the Phase I design of a system, termed"Cognitive Capture", to enable the unobtrusi ...

  3. A Compact, Low Cost, Handheld Sensor for Non- Destructive Material Case Depth Verification

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N102141

    In this SBIR program, AlphaSense, Inc. teamed with the Center for Non-destructive Evaluations at Iowa State University to develop a compact, low cost handheld sensor for non-destructive material case depth verification. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using an alternating current potential drop (ACPD) sensor for non-destructive measurements of case depth. Phase II will be focusing on ...

  4. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  6. Absolute Localization in GPS-denied Environment for Autonomous Unmanned Ground and Micro-air Vehicle Systems

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N121101

    Polaris proposes to make use of currently available sensor suites on AUGV/MAV platforms to implement a Kalman filter-based integrated solution to the autonomous localization problem in GPS-denied environments, titled Stereo Camera Absolute Localization and Map correlation System (SCALMS). This effort will focus on the development of two distinct subsystems, dead reckoning and absolute positioning. ...

  7. Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing Technologies

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11006

    Current acquisition, tracking and pointing (ATP) technology typically incorporates algorithms, such as the Kalman filter, known to be poorly suited to the tracking of nonlinearly moving targets. Nonlinearities may be due to target motion (e.g., agile target) but targeting platform induced jitter also manifests as target nonlinearity. Current and future mobile MDA assets such as ALTB and ABIR wil ...

  8. Adaptive, Automated Real-time Event/Target Detection using Supervised Learning

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: N121017

    Automatic event and activity recognition from stream video and video archive can greatly enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of motion imagery analyst by filtering out the most relevant and timely content from a huge amount of video data through query video clips. Building on our DARPA VIRAT program to detect various events, such as vehicle starting, stopping, turning, U-turning, person runni ...

  9. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07037

    Current monostatic radar systems suffer fine tracking and discrimination performance degradation when encountering mainlobe jammers deployed within a reentry complex. As a result our forces may be vulnerable to attack. During Phase I, we have developed distributed aperture techniques for mitigating mainlobe jammers which are ready for evaluation in an operational system context. To accomplish this ...
