  1. Standoff Coherent Optical Detection of Acoustic Signals (SCODAS)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Detection of clandestine tunnels and underground facilities is a continuing interest of the US DoD and Customs and Border Protection. Research continues in an attempt to find functional and reliable sensing methods, including seismic methods. Dynamic activity in tunnels emits mechanical energy that propagates away in seismic waves. Resulting ground vibrations can be measured at offset d ...

  2. SANDGT: a Stochastic Adaptive Nonlinear Differential Game Tool for Persistent and Risk-Averse Space Situation Awareness

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: Space defense analysis and mission trade studies are vital for the success of space-borne military operation. In this proposal, Intelligent Fusion Technology, Inc (IFT) and its partners propose a decision support tool called stochastic adaptive nonlinear differential game tool (SANDGT) for persistent and risk-advert space situation awareness. The main idea of our approach is to design a ...

  3. Robust Decision Tool for Persistent Space Self Defense Systems

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to apply a game theoretic approach to design a robust decision making tool for self defense space systems that integrates realistic system models, distributed sensor management, advanced estimation, and tracking techniques. Our approach uses innovative game models to track space objects, analyze their orbits, and provide decision tools for the ...

  4. Adaptive Markov Inference Game Optimization (AMIGO) for Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF17CT02

    Space superiority requires space protection and space situational awareness (SSA), which rely on rapid and accurate space object behavioral and operational intent discovery. The focus of this project is to develop a stochastic approach for rapid discovery of evasive satellite behaviors. Designing the innovative decision support tool has numerous challenges: (i) partial observable actions; (ii) eva ...

  5. Self-Calibrating, Conformal Nanomembrane based Pressure Sensors for Embedded Sensing Applications

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF18AT002

    This Air Force Phase I STTR program would develop self-calibrating, conformal nanomembrane (NM) based pressure sensors for embedded sensing applications, using SOI (Silicon on Insulator) NM techniques in combination with our pioneering nanocomposite materials.Such low-modulus, conformal nanomembrane sensor skins with integrated self-calibration, interconnect elements and electronic devices that ca ...

  6. HASLOC: Hierarchical And-Or Structures forLocalization and Object Recognition

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF18AT014

    Target detection and recognition is a challenging problem because of changes in appearance, viewing direction, occlusion and other covariates. Systems that can accurately and efficiently detect and track objects can provide several benefits in surveillance, monitoring and other applications. As part of this effort, we propose to develop a robust learning-based approach to detect, track and recogni ...

  7. Innovations in Physical Modeling and Statistical Exploitation of Electromagnetic Target Signatures

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...

  8. Intra-Subaperture Adaptive Optical (ISAO) System

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...

  9. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The DF&NN team has significant experience in delivering Space Domain Awareness tools. These tools will be applied to 2 years of GEO ephemeris data of active satellites at DF&NN. The RDESB prototype will reduce the risk in rapidly discovering the behavioral patterns of potentially evasive and/or ambiguous active resident space objects. RDESB will detect non-Keplerian behavior in ephemeris data for ...

  10. Functionalized, Therapeutic-Loaded Liposomes for the Acute Treatment of TBI

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DHA18A001

    Traumatic brain injury is a common problem in both the military and civilian communities, but current treatment protocols are focused on managing symptoms and fail to prevent significant long-term repercussions. In the proposed program, Luna will demonstrate the feasibility of a liposome-based therapeutic delivery system capable of delivering hydrophilic and hydrophobic therapeutics to the traumat ...
