  1. 2-Dimensional Phase Controlled Coherent VCSEL Arrays for Military Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N11AT024

    Aerius Photonics and the University of Illinois propose to develop a large two-dimensional coherently coupled Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) array that will enable phase controlled operation, providing a building block for electronic steering of optical beam outputs with no mechanical parts. In Phase I, the program team will design the array including epitaxial layers, VCSEL array ...

  2. A Case-based Reasoning Approach to Intelligent Tutoring Systems

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, we will investigate a case-based reasoning (CBR) approach to intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) and explore the feasibility of semi-automated/automated course authoring techniques to speed collection and structuring of domain knowledge. We will develop a prototype example-based ITS, enhanced with multimedia, within a specific Navy instructional domain and a generic ITS architec ...

  4. A Compact CO Oxidation System

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N091035

    Navy aircraft are equipped with an On-Board Oxygen Generation System (OBOGS) to supply the pilot and the crew with supplemental oxygen for high altitude operation. However, Navy aircraft are usually closely spaced while waiting for take-off from aircraft carriers, and the jet engine exhaust contaminates the bleed air used to supply oxygen to the pilot and crew. Among the contaminants in the engine ...

  5. A Conformal Packaging and Installation Technique for In Situ Sensors in Extreme Environments

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N112123

    Sporian Microsystems Inc. has spent the last several years developing polymer derived SiCN sensor and associated packaging technology for application temperatures up to 1350degreesC, and demonstrated them in the combustion environments of a range of commercial burner rigs and aerospace turbine engines. Based on our expertise in high temperature materials and packaging processes, we propose to deve ...

  6. A MEMS Multi-sensor Suite for Prognostic Health Monitoring Applications in Military Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N092100

    The ability to monitor the health of military assets/equipment, to know their history, and to estimate their condition and/or useful life is an important issue for military planners. A key aspect of such heath monitoring (HM) concepts is a system that can sense, record, and store the history data of environmental exposures of an asset over its lifetime. Environmental parameters of most interest in ...

  7. A Modular Real-Time Tracking System

    SBC: DEVELOSOFT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a concept for locating, identifying, and tracking carrier embarked aircraft with: - no modifications to aircraft; - existing and new video cameras; and - advanced techniques for image recognition, sensor fusion, and tracking. Team member Ball Aerospace will develop a modular concept for existing and new video equipment for day/night, all weather, high clutter, and hi ...

  8. A Multi-User Deployable Virtual Workbench

    SBC: FAKESPACE LABS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Fakespace proposes to develop a feasible system for use in a Naval environment which permits two users to see stereo images on a virtual workbench simultaneously. NRL and other groups have implemented virtual workbenches which display 3D models on a table top. The proposed development effort will permit several users (initially two) to simultaneously view and interact with the model. The t ...

  9. A Multi-view Sensor Suite/Process Model-based Control System

    SBC: STRATONICS, INC.            Topic: N102166

    Stratonics, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of measuring critical variable parameters and controlling thermal conditions in direct digital manufacturing (DDM) by developing a multi-sensor/process model-based control system. The innovation combines a multi-view thermal imaging sensor suite, finite element method (FEM) model and real-time software algorithms to control the laser power, ...

  10. A Novel Software/Hardware Hybrid System for Advanced Ejection Seat Control

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    An innovative combination of key contributors to ejection seat/capsule aerodynamic modeling, controller and sequencer design, and biodynamic simulation are to be integrated under the framework of a commercial software simulation tool for this Phase I project. The use of a commercial simulation package enhances the cost effectiveness of the software development, since support of graphics capabilit ...
