  1. Acoustic direction finding using biologically inspired techniques

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: A04T013

    The ability to determine the direction and characteristics of sounds they hear is one many birds and mammals are endowed with. This biological ability evolved over millions of years, and if one can understand the mechanisms, one expects, we can copy and mimic the capability to some extent in practical applications. Audio cues are also essential for situation awareness for soldiers. Ability t ...

  2. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF03T022

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible AI system for use in state-of-the-art computer-based wargames. The development will result in a 3rd generation computer wargame based on modern air power conflict and the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  3. All-Nitrogen or High-Nitrogen Compounds as High Energy Density Materials

    SBC: ERC, INC.            Topic: AF04T003

    During Phase I of the proposed program, ERC-Incorporated proposes to identify novel promising polynitrogen candidates by means of theoretical calculations. Furthermore, preliminary tests will be carried out to explore the feasibility of synthesizing the most promising candidates. High-nitrogen compounds constitute a second area of significant interest. It is well known that the insertion of one he ...

  4. Antenna Coupled MOM for Multispectral Infrared Sensors

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA04T015

    ITN Energy Systems, in collaboration with the University of Central Florida and Millennium Engineering and Integration Company, propose to design a multispectral imager using an antenna-coupled metal-oxide-metal (MOM) sensor. Because the MOM sensor is patterned and processed with standard integrated circuit technology, the sensor is readily integrable with existing cellular neural network processo ...

  5. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF04T008

    Colorado Engineering, Inc., a small woman owned business, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are teaming to develop a Stegi@work architecture for an extensible, distributed application that can be utilized to detect steganographic content in media files, alert the user, and either mitigate (destroy) the content if possible or quarantine the files as appropriate. The key distinguis ...

  6. Automated Video Surveillance at Night

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: ST031004

    Visual surveillance systems have been used for decades to deter and detect crime by providing extra sets of eyes to security personnel. However, using human surveillance operators to monitor banks of video displays is problematic for many reasons, including operator fatigue, complacency and the inherent difficulty of detecting all objects of interest when many video streams have to be monitored si ...

  7. BMDO/02-214B Electronic Devices- Foldable Integrated Thin-film Stiffening (FITS) for Spacecraft Electronic Solar Array Power Components

    SBC: MICROSAT SYSTEMS            Topic: BMDO02T00

    Mass and cost reductions are needed to meet the demanding requirements of present and future DOD, NASA and commercial spacecraft solar arrays. Unfortunately, the state of the art (SOA) rigid space solar cell technology has reached its limitations in system cost & specific power. The cheapest "off the shelf" cost is greater than $1000/watt (Only economies of scale can reduce $/watt for rigid solar ...

  9. Dense Wavelength-Multiplexed Sensors for Tomography in Hypersonic Flows Using Diode-Laser Technology

    SBC: Zolo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    Zolo Technologies and Stanford University propose to develop and demonstrate an innovative combustion sensor technology that employs tunable diode laser spectroscopy implemented in a novel way to diagnose the SCRAMJET flow field for ground test evaluation. The sensor will enable the end-user to detect and quantify non-uniformities in the spatial distribution of temperature and species concentrati ...

  10. Design and Testing of a Water Based Fire Extinguishing System for On-Board Hydrogen Peroxide Fires

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: MDA04T004

    The Air Force has demonstrated that a water is capable of extinguishing comparable H2O2 oxidizer fires with 23 pounds of water vs 67 pounds of halon. Recent advances in sensor technology make it possible to detect an H2O2 leak prior to ignition, or to rapidly detect ignition in order to initiate fire protection system water flow. Recent findings by Streamline Automation also indicate that fire e ...
