  1. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: ST092005

    Small satellites working in coordinated manner as part of a distributed constellation hold the promise to revolutionize DoD space operations. However, small satellites also have significant inherent limitations. Their size limits the types of sensors that they can accommodate. It also limits propulsion, power generation and attitude control capabilities. One way of overcoming some of these lim ...

  2. Integrated Photovoltaic Energy Scavenging and Storage System

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB092010

    The majority of modern portable, wireless electrical devices are powered by batteries; when the batteries are depleted they must be replaced or recharged, which is a problem when the system operates in remote areas or an enemy's region. The capability to scavenge energy from the environment to recharge batteries and/or directly power electronics is essential to increase system lifetime and utilit ...

  3. Electric Lift Fan for VTOL Air Vehicle

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB091014

    The need exists for safe, high power density electric lift fans, especially for vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) air vehicle applications. The unique approach proposed here uses electric power to drive a brushless ring motor and fan inside a duct. The ring motor is scalable and requires no gearing, linkages, or hot-gas plumbing. The low disk loading compared to turbojets and turbofans minimizes ...

  4. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB092016

    CubeSats have emerged as a de-facto platform for small, low cost satellites. There is an ever growing list of COTS suppliers for CubeSat compatible systems, and numerous launch opportunities due to the development of the PPOD launcher which now flies as part of many expendable launch vehicles and even the Space Shuttle. In spite of this, CubeSats applications are limited by the small size, volum ...

  5. Massively Scalable Themes, Entities and Relationships (MASTER)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SB082026

    Discovering the important evidence in the form of activities, actors and relationships in a sea of open source data requires the ability to extract and correlate seemingly unrelated pieces of data, distinguish that data from the noise of harmless civilian activity and find the hidden attributes and relationships that characterize the true threat. To meet these requirements, the DAC BOBCAT Team pr ...

  6. Wide Area Video Motion Blur Elimination

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: ST081007

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase-II project will design, develop and integrate an effective and efficient motion blur elimination algorithm to Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance - Imaging System (ARGUS-IS) system by optimizing and implementing the algorithm proposed during the Phase-I investigation to FPGA. In addition, an image enhancement toolkit for ground station ...

  7. Dismount Tracking in Urban Scenes

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: SB082027

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop an advanced dismount activity analysis system that will utilize novel statistical models and non-causal techniques for robust dismount detection and tracking in low spatial resolution and frame-rate aerial videos. The key innovation in this effort is an integrated approach for dismount detection and tracking that explicitly models typical scenarios including ...

  8. Validating Large Scale Simulations of Socio-Political Phenomena

    SBC: EVIDENCE BASED RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: SB072013

    This project involves research that supports the development of a prototype system to identify active factors in large complex HSCB simulation models. The approach is based on a Bayesian inference technique for finding active factors in fractionated screening experiments. The project will a) continue research on algorithm enhancements based on the results of Phase I, 2) continue research into s ...

  9. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082055

    A significant amount of personal injury and property damage as well as lost productivity could be avoided by speeding up the body’s adjustment cycle to new circadian schedules or re-synchronizing body schedules that have slipped or advanced. For the military, this problem is especially acute because the warfighters’ duties include dangerous equipment and a need for 24-hour operational readine ...

  10. Explosion-Proof Solid State Lighting Fixture for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082054

    Within harsh environment areas, Naval vessels require illumination. Incandescent based Symbol 48.2 explosion-proof fixtures are rated to operate in these spaces but are inefficient, resulting in unsafe fixture surface temperatures and unnecessarily high energy consumption. Under such extreme operating conditions, the lamps in the fixtures fail frequently, leading to high maintenance costs. Prod ...
