  1. Revolutionary Airlift Innovation

    SBC: Logistic Gliders Inc.            Topic: ST14B004

    We propose to mature LG-X glider technology by manufacturing full-scaled prototypes and characterizing them in land-based flight-testing by using commercial aircraft to drop the gliders. Validated components such as the landing parachute, folding wing mechanism, and autopilot control system will undergo integrated flight-testing. Logistic Gliders will provide a considerable cost share to support ...

  2. First Principles Selection of Social Media Visualizations

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: ST12A004

    As the importance of social networks skyrockets, so does the need to understand human behavior in these forums. While statistical analyses can help to some extent, many types of patterns are simply not visible by looking at raw numbers. However, many of these patterns do emerge in visualizations, and the innate human ability to see these patterns in graphical depictions represents a valuable oppo ...

  3. Automated Video Activity Analysis for Military Operations

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: ST081010

    The increasing use of video in force protection, autonomous vehicles reconnaissance, and surveillance in general has created a great demand for automated analysis and monitoring. It is infeasible to have humans monitoring and analyzing the vast amount of video used in such surveillance, and automated analysis yields hope to ease the burden and increase the amount of information extracted from col ...

  4. Ultra Low Drive Voltage Electro-Optic Modulator

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: ST081014

    The development of compact, ultra-low drive voltage optical phase modulators is a critical key component for passive antenna remoting applications, a strategic area, part of a number of current and upcoming DARPA initiatives. With the development of sufficiently low V-pi modulators, passive front-ends can be constructed with a low figure even for a moderate optical pumping power. The combination o ...

  5. Long Coherence Length Far Ultraviolet Laser for High-Resolution Nano-Fabrication

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: ST071006

    Cost effective semiconductor processing tools that enable the high-resolution nano-fabrication of low-volume electronics are needed by the DOD. The printing of ultra-fine gratings on silicon wafers using interference immersion lithography is envisaged as a first maskless process step in the fabrication of advanced application specific integrated circuits. Next generation interference immersion lit ...

  6. Dynamic Multisensor Exploitation (DYME)

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: ST081008

    The challenges faced by airborne and ground-based sensors in detecting, classifying, identifying, associating and tracking difficult moving targets, such as insurgent forces, operating in difficult terrain such as mountains and forests will be addressed. Our team will quantify the performance that can be achieved using multi-sensor, multi-spectral, and multi-platform techniques, where the sensors ...

  7. Novel Methods for Rapid Detection of Infection Agents and the Severity of Cellular Damage

    SBC: DiaCarta, Inc.            Topic: ST081003

    Early detection of virulent infectious pathogens is critical to blocking the devastating epidemic spread of the pathogen and the potential harm this could have on our armed forces and general populations. In Phase I, we have utilized the state-of-the-art QuantiGene 2.0 technology to establish an assay for the sensitive quantification of SARS (epidemic spread in 2001) and assessing plasma DNA level ...

  8. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  9. Visual Relative Navigation via Intelligent Ephemeral Relationships (VRNIER)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C006

    As unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) become more prevalent there is an increasing desire to automate UAS navigation and control. To enable future UASs to perform a wider variety of missions, the they must be able to complete autonomous relative navigation to accomplish missions. Current technologies rely heavily on GPS measurements, which are undesirable since GPS signals may be unavailable in many ...

  10. Pathogen Classification Tool (PaCT)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST18C002

    Stottler Henke proposes PaCT, leveraging our related past work in computer vision and machine learning. Drawing from techniques used in ExPATSS, a Phase II SBIR effort slated for transition to the Naval fleet, PaCT will perform bacterial characterization using features derived from the phenotype of the bacteria. PaCT will predict bacterial characteristics such as pathogenicity, antibiotic resistan ...
