  1. Agent-based Generic Scheduling Engine Builder

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF03080

    The key innovation proposed in this Phase II effort is a set of tools and framework that enforces a new powerful approach to developing agent-based scheduling engines by designing the basic components, identifying agents, and designing interaction protocols and behavior to meet the system requirement. We propose to extend Generic Scheduling Engine Builder (GenSEB) tool developed in the Phase I eff ...

  2. Rapid Target Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis


    The objective for this Phase II SBIR is the construction of a Vulnerability Analysis Toolkit with the principle goal of expediting the development of inputs required to support vulnerability simulations. It's foundation includes a generic, open, and cross-platform XML-based database specification. The software will implement two unique and specific techniques for increasing the speed at which an ...

  3. Fuze Proximity Sensor Aided Guidance

    SBC: Mustang Technology Group, L.P.            Topic: AF03143

    Future precision guided mutions require increased targeting accuracy at a very low cost. In the Phase II program, Mustang Technology Group will show the technical feasibility of an innovative approach to fuse GPS/INS data with available data from advanced RF fuze proximity sensors, both of which are low cost sensors. The resulting proximity sensor aided guidance (PSAG) can improve the overall pe ...

  4. ABEL: an Adaptive Belief Engine for Satellite Cluster Data Fusion

    SBC: INTERFACE & CONTROL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF02062

    Data Fusion has emerged as a critical technology to be developed and deployed for military projects encompassing Space Situational Awareness, and Offensive/Defensive Counterspace to increase the warfighter's ability to identify, characterize, geo-locate and assess attacks. Fusion has also been identified as a major risk to be mitigated for the NASA/Air Force Joint Space Launch Initiative (SLI) Re ...

  5. Fuel Cell Powered Multi-Use Tactical Vehicle with Distributed Power

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF03289

    There is a currently a growing need from the Air Force to replace multiple large scale vehicles with hybrids that can significantly reduce their logistical footprint. A combined MB-4 aircraft tow tractor/-86 GENSET hybrid vehicle is therefore greatly desired to reduce logistics in air base operations. Furthermore, there is a major concern regarding vehicle operation on military bases, namely, fu ...

  6. Context-Based XML Indexing, Search And Retrieval (XIASR)

    SBC: ARGTEC, INC.            Topic: AF03094

    One of the critical capabilities to enhance the availability and performance of C4I systems for Homeland Defense and other major Air Force initiatives (e.g., JWID, DMFE, TAS, DICE, Broadsword, JBI, SSW and BP) is indexing and retrieval of large multi-source information. Most current indexing and retrieval techniques in these systems are based on limited sets of keywords and simple lookup tables. A ...

  7. Intelligent Asset Tracking and Management System

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF03275

    KBSI proposes to develop an Intelligent Asset Tracking and Management System (IATMS) that will continuously locate, track, and manage assets across a large facility. Lack of adequate asset tracking and management is a significant problem in any MRO organization, where errors in identifying accurate information about an asset or its location can lead to a shutdown situation, potentially causing tr ...

  8. Carbon Nanotube Based Optical Sensors

    SBC: Pettit Applied Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF03235

    This project is to build and test several passive optical sensors needed for AFRL Fly-by-Light systems based on carbon nanotube technology that has been developed in the Phase I efforts. The sensors will be developed to meet the important AFRL Fly-by-Light requirements of insensitivity to light amplitude, high degree of EMI/RFI immunity, exceptional small size, measurement sensitivity, response t ...

  9. Lenslike Grating-Outcoupled Surface Emitting Laser with Superstrate Reflector

    SBC: Photodigm, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A surface-emitting semiconductor laser with a lenslike lateral layer for mode control is proposed for operation in the 975 nm wavelength range. This lens-like grating-outcoupled surface-emitting (LLGSE) laser is designed for powers of about 10 W (300microns wide and 1 cm long). Applications of LLGSEs include pumping solid state lasers used in laser radar systems, laser designators, and counter ...

  10. Improved Protective Coatings for High Strength Steels

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF03109

    Corrosion resistant coatings are used to protect aircraft landing gear components that are made of high-strength steel. Super-steel alloys are susceptible to corrosion and subsequent cracking when exposed to the environment. The damage rapidly diminishes the strength of the components, resulting in costly landing gear failure. The unique design of the C-17 allows it to take off and land on dirt ...
