  1. High Compression of Infrared Data

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF131070

    ABSTRACT: Data compression schemes generally fall into two main categories: lossless and lossy. Lossless schemes promise to provide an uncompressed file which is identical before and after compression. As lossless schemes must be able to reconstruct every feature of the original file they often provide modest compression ratios. In fact, it is easy to show that no lossless compression scheme ...

  2. Compact Radar Antenna

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N132087

    Directed electromagnetic (RF, microwave and millimeter wave) energy offers unique and flexible options for non-lethal weapons, but the technology for these systems needs to achieve smaller and lighter packaging. Of particular interest are the Multi-frequency RF Vehicle Stopper at L-Band and the Active Denial Array at W-Band. The antennas currently employed for these systems are large reflectors th ...

  3. Simultaneous multi-beam high-bandwidth conformal tactical data link antenna systems

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N132089

    n this Phase I effort, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays integrated on the Fire Scout UAV platform. Phased array systems allow for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation. The use of multibeam arrays will allow the Fire Scout and other UAV platforms to augment fleet communications, supporting information ...

  4. Virtual Visual Landing Aid for Rotorcraft Recovery (V2LAR2)

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N132133

    Operational utility for ship-based rotorcraft is often limited by weather conditions that can influence sea states, wind over deck (WOD) and airwake turbulence, and pilot visibility. Recent advances in Visual Landing Aid (VLA) design have made strides in providing better situational awareness to pilots operating at night and in inclement weather, but still require visual contact between the pilot ...

  5. Engineered Nanoscale Materials for use in Thermal Batteries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N121035

    Thermal batteries provide a short burst of high power to various components in smart munitions, such as missiles launched from UAVs and other systems. There is a need for thermal batteries that have higher energy density and power density, and longer run time than the state of the art batteries, which use micron-scale particles in the cathode, anode and electrolyte. In the Phase I program, we demo ...

  6. High Efficiency 808 nm Laser Pump Diode Arrays with Excellent Beam Quality

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N122112

    Navy is interested in developing high power and high operation efficiency laser pumps at 808nm for multiple Navy applications. VCSEL technology offers an excellent choice for the development of such laser pumps. The new approaches developed during phase I for very high efficiency and high power would be further developed and used for high efficiency pump and pump module development. The approach w ...

  7. Advanced Order Linearizer for Satellite Communications

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A12041

    The Ka-/Q-band satellite systems offer potential for transportable and mobile communications through the effective use of the wide bandwidths available while requiring that adequate linearity performance be maintained. In environments where size and power conservation is of high importance, power consumption and heat dissipation in the power amplifier (PA) must be minimized. However, it is widely ...

  8. Cost Effective Solar Array based on High Efficiency Thin-Film Technology


    ABSTRACT: This Phase I effort will involve the development of an ultra low cost, high specific power, modular and flexible solar array module using currently available thin-film solar cells, innovative interconnects, and flexible encapsulation. The high efficiency thin-film solar cells will enable high specific power and flexibility in the module. The interconnect scheme and encapsulation will a ...

  9. Intermediate Transient Support of High Rate and Pulsed Loads

    SBC: NDI Engineering Company            Topic: N12AT022

    With the Navy proceeding on its goal of an all electric ship, innovative R&D methodology is needed to model and validate high rate, intermittent energy storage and control architectures that can rapidly accept high intermittent currents to load-level prime movers during the pulsed-power duty cycle. This proposal offers a solution to mitigate the intermittent disturbances to the ships distribution ...

  10. Improved Estimation Approaches for High-Accuracy Satellite Detection, Tracking, Identification, and Characterization

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF131076

    ABSTRACT: Numerica is proposing to extend its mature multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) technology by providing additional estimation and data fusion algorithms to support improved space object detection, tracking, identification, and characterization. An extended program would aim to develop a feature-aided MHT (FA-MHT) capability that (i) exploits both kinematic and feature data including light ...
