  1. AAIMS: Adaptable Interfaces for M&S Tools

    SBC: THE DESIGN KNOWLEDGE COMPANY            Topic: AF181063

    The goal of the Agile Adaptable Interfaces for Modeling & Simulation (AAIMS) is to rapidly generate an integrated system-of-systems (SoS) model from disparate sensor models, simulations, and simulation environments with minimal rework to the original models and simulations. AAIMS will provide better understanding of complex sensor systems, improve communications among key players in the research a ...

  2. Accelerated Modifications using Physics-substantiated Safety Arguments (AMPS)

    SBC: Inspird Inc.            Topic: AF181025

    A new approach is proposed for Accelerated Modifications using Physics-substantiated Safety Arguments (AMPS). We leverage evidence-based certification methodology and Safety Arguments (SAs) to map modifications to system architecture and behaviors. We integrate formal methods to build SAs that trace the impact of modifications through complex system interactions. AMPS connects SAs to critical desi ...

  3. Accelerated Reconnaissance Window Development

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF093129

    In this Phase I SBIR program UES will develop an economic fabrication process to produce high optical quality infrared (IR) windows for reconnaissance window applications. The state-of-the art reconnaissance window are lacking in optical quality and/or durability to withstand operational environments for extended periods of time. Also, the availability of such advanced window materials in large si ...

  4. AccuPoint Active Vibration Control for Enhanced Satellite Communications

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF112059

    ABSTRACT: As the data rates of satellite communication links increase due to inclusion of high resolution imagery and video, a high bandwidth backbone network is required to support all uses of the network. Free Space Optical (FSO) communication links have the ability to provide very high data rates over very long propagation distances, however, due to their narrow beam divergence, they require a ...

  5. Accurate Uncertainty Estimation for Computer Vision Based Geo-location


    ABSTRACT: As vision systems are continuously increasing their quantity and capabilities for capturing aerial imagery, they have widely integrated in autonomous systems to determine the geo-location of objects. The vision-based geo-location systems have found their applications in many aspects, such as environment real time monitoring, search and rescue, reconnaissance missions, and situational aw ...

  6. AC Impedance Sensor for Collective Protection Filter Residual Life Indicator

    SBC: Guild Associates, Inc.            Topic: CBD10106

    Guild Associates, Inc. proposes to develop and evaluate an active electrochemical sensor based residual life indicator (RLI) for adsorptive carbon filters. The sensing system of the RLI will operate by analyzing the electrochemical state of the carbon within the filter and evaluate the remaining adsorptive reactive capacities of the filter. The sensor design will be challenged against an array of ...

  7. A Clutter-Removal Toolkit to Improve VLF Receive Fidelity


    ABSTRACT: Reliable transmission and reception of messages to bomber, tanker and reconnaissance wing-command posts requires a high degree of robustness and redundancy in the event of a nuclear attack. One key feature of this transmission and reception capability is the VLF radio, capable of broadcasting worldwide by use of ground transmitters and propagating radio waves. Despite the challenges o ...

  9. A Compact Full Motion Video Hyperspectral Measurement System for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF171130

    Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS) platforms fit into the USAF Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance strategy by providing local persistence, operation in contested environments, and low probability of detection. SUAS gimbal performance is typically limited to full color full motion video, limiting target detection and identification information available to image analysts and detecti ...

  10. A Comprehensive MIMO Centric Solution for Improved Spectral Efficiency of Airborne Data Links

    SBC: Silvus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093034

    The conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq have produced missions that have demonstrated the importance of unmanned ground and aerial assets in aiding the warfighter. In particular, the use of UAS in providing ISR data has grown significantly over the last 6 years. The ever increasing use of UAS assets coupled with improved quality and resolution of the ISR information being delivered has created a spe ...
