  1. A Geolocation System With Accuracy Self-Awareness (ASA) to Enable Reduced Size/Cost Antenna Arrays

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N11AT012

    The predominant method used in electronic support measure (ESM) systems to detect and geolocate noncooperative RF signals employs arrays of antennas to estimate signal angle of arrival (AOA). There are several issues that preclude wide installation of these, including very high cost, challenging installation requirements, size and weight, operation that requires highly trained specialists, and pro ...

  2. Active Damage Detection & Visualization for Naval Assets

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: N10AT042

    This proposal presents an optimized approach for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of naval assets. This research leverages hardware previously developed by Metis Design Corporation (MDC), including distributed digitization hardware, piezoelectric-based damage-localization sensors, and a data accumulation hub. Collaborating with UCSD, there were three main thrusts for the Phase I research: sensor ...

  3. ADDA Adaptive Decision-making for Distributed Assests

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N11AT031

    When submarines and surface vessels must work together to track targets over the horizon, they need to closely communicate and coordinate their assets to ensure that information about the targets is shared; tasking is assigned and understood; and accurate, informed operational decisions are made in a timely manner. Complicating this coordination is the underlying tasking, decision making, and inte ...

  4. Advanced Multiscale & Multiresolution Image Enhancement and

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed STTR project (Phases I and II) will develop multiscale and multiresolution algorithms and software, as well as produce a simulation testbed for evaluating advanced techniques for image enhancement and classification using sensor data from multiple UAVs and UCAVs. For development and testing we will utilize multi-sensor data such as SAR, ISAR, IR, MMW, and Ladar, obtained from bo ...

  6. Affordable High Strength Mo-Si-B Alloys for High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N11AT029

    Mo-Si-B alloys are being considered as possible candidates for high temperature applications such as next generation jet engine blades because of its excellent oxidation resistance and mechanical properties which are much superior to Ni-based super alloys. Navy is looking for cost effective mature Mo-Si-B material production technology for its aerospace applications. In Phase I, Aspen Systems plan ...

  7. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  8. Artificially Diverse Operating System (ADOS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N11AT023

    Artificial diversity attempts to eliminate the security risks of the IT monoculture. The goal of artificial diversity is to minimize the number of common vulnerabilities across a set of systems by intentionally introducing variations to the structure and process of functionally-equivalent software. Ideally, these variations are invisible to the legitimate user but pose a challenge to the malicious ...

  9. Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT029

    The proposed Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM) system significantly advances the state of the art in detecting deception in unstructured data such as websites and chat messages. Our research focuses on automated techniques based on linguistic theory that can detect both misrepresentations and hidden messages. The proposed work draws on the field of so ...
