  3. A Software Thin Layer for Robust Wireless Communications in Challenged Environments

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: N08T032

    Today''s warfare is network centric and relies on efficient communications on the move. To support these requirements, wireless mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) have received a lot of attention because of self deployment and reconfiguration properties. Unfortunately, wireless networks in mobile environments face formidable challenges - from radio propagation effects to external jamming, path breakag ...

  4. Acoustic Intercept Receiver for Naval Special Warfare Undersea Vehicles

    SBC: Sonatech, Inc.            Topic: N09T012

    Naval Special Warfare (NSW) teams often use underwater vehicles (UVs) for clandestine transport into highly sensitive littoral areas. The current sonar suites on the existing vehicles do not include a system for detecting and identifying active sonar transmissions, making the vehicle and the SEALs susceptible to detection by active sonar systems on manned and unmanned surface and subsurface surve ...

  7. AdapTrain™: Individual and Team Learning through Adaptive Simulation-based Training

    SBC: INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N09T028

    As the Navy continues to reduce personnel to perform in multiple roles in at-sea environments, traditional training approaches that rely on extensive “on-the-job” training no longer suffice. The need today is to maximize cognitive readiness on the part of shipboard personnel while compressing the learning cycle. Achieving the latter requires optimally tailoring experiences in realtime to the p ...

  9. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform which inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. This necessitates a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. Typically, gateways only support a pair of protocols or waveforms and the translation between th ...
