  1. Enhanced Riverine Drifter

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT024

    The Navy has need of assessing the river environment including bathymetry, flow velocity profile, and navigational obstructions. While improvements in measurement fidelity and reduction in cost have come about by the use of multiple drifters, measurement quality is lost due to convergent drifter trajectories, and cost/risk remains high due to personnel effort required for deployment. An autonomous ...

  2. Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Underwater Secure Text Messaging and Diver Locater

    SBC: YOTTA NAVIGATION CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT034

    Yotta Navigation and The Ohio State University propose to develop a complete diver text messaging and locator system. The system will securely transmit preformatted and free-text messages, and will be able to accurately determine range and bearing, at distances of up to 1000 meters. This system consists of two major components. A multimode receiver and transmitter, mounted on a swimmer delivery ve ...

  3. Tactical 4 K Cryocooler: Concept Demonstration

    SBC: Iris Technology Corporation            Topic: N10AT026

    The primary objective of Phase II is to obtain experimental test data to substantiate the analytic predictions developed during Phase I (4.0 W at 60.0K, 0.30 W at 11.5K, and 0.196W at 4.0K for 800 W of input pressure-volume (PV) power). This will be accomplished by leveraging a new purpose-built pulse tube cold head with existing cryocooler assets to be provided by the United States Air Force. Thi ...

  4. Innovative Application of Urban ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) Imagery for High Fidelity Training Devices

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: N09BT038

    The hindrances to full use of geospecific imagery are the labor required to create the databases, and limits on the rendering capacity of current image generators (IGs), both in polygon count and texture volume. Our solution is to create modeling tools to automate the application of ISR imagery on geospecific urban geometry and to use advanced rending techniques to visualize dense urban scenes in ...

  5. Energy Scaling of Ultrashort Pulse (USP) High Energy Fiber Lasers Through Temporal Control

    SBC: Raydiance, Inc.            Topic: N09T013

    Phase Tailoring represents a unique and novel approach to significantly driving up pulse energies in all-fiber ultrafast laser systems. One of the challenges of working in the ultrafast regime is that the amplification and compression part of the chirped pulse amplification scheme can cause a variety of effects that will damage pulse quality and must be accounted for, such as B-integral, SOP and o ...

  6. Adaptable Sensor Processing for Passive Targets Using Neuro

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: N/A

    Work to be performed in this program is based upon years of innovative technology development invested by personnel at Nova Research. Techniques proposed here are patterned after biological principles which, when applied to finding targets which are moving against highly cluttered infrared backgrounds, will be shown to exhibit remarkable performance. Sensor and data fusion techniques may ...

  7. Expanding Helicopter Pilots Field of View

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N10BT049

    Night vision has been a key enabling technology for the past 30 years that has allowed US pilots to"own the night". One of the big disadvantages of current night vision systems is that they have not provided pilots with good peripheral vision, since most have a total field of view (TFOV) of only 40 degrees. A large survey of USAF pilots found that the most often requested improvement to night visi ...

  8. TRIEPOD Tool for Real-time Intelligent Evaluation of Physiological and Operational Data

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N11AT001

    We propose to develop a Tool for Real-time Intelligent Evaluation of Physiological and Operational Data (TRIEPOD), consisting of a self-contained sensor suite and assessment model for analyzing human and system performance. By combining intelligent behavioral and cognitive performance assessment methods with physiological state measures, the TRIEPOD system will not only identify instances of sub-o ...

  9. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N11AT002

    As with all service branches within the Department of Defense (DoD), the mission objectives of the Navy are expanding to encompass not only major combat operations, but also asymmetric warfare scenarios. This expanding role requires the Navy to increasingly operate in littoral waters where effective identification of small craft and semi-submersibles is a critical capability for both fleet protect ...

  10. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N11AT002

    Over-The-Horizon (OTH) radar plays a crucial role in naval situational awareness and the ultimate safety of the naval warfighter and navy assets. Traditionally, OTH detection has been enabled by large land based radars exploiting the interaction of high frequency (HF) radio waves with the ionosphere, but this method is susceptible to instabilities in propagation and the limitations of HF systems. ...
