  1. High Energy Laser Diagnostics for Space Based Applications

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aculight proposes to develop a novel laser source that will enable fundamental spectroscopic studies of Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) to be performed by the Air Force, providing vital design information for the development of high power HF lasers. The source willbe a continuous wave optical parametric oscillator (OPO) pumped by a distributed feedback fiber laser. It will be designed to be capable of 500m ...

  3. Integrated Guidance, Control, and Estimation for Hit-To-Kill Interceptors

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Barron Associates, Inc. (BAI) proposes an aggressive Phase I effort to develop novel adaptive, integrated guidance, control, and estimation algorithms for ballistic-missile interceptors with stringent hit-to-kill requirements. The approach combines recentadvances in nonlinear control (backstepping) and estimation methods, and leverages on-line neural network technology for rapid adaptation and ro ...

  4. Advance Failure Warning via Data Driven Stochastic Models

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ideal prognostic system would be generic, requiring no domain-specific knowledge for its application. The prognostic system must also perform across all operating regimes without generating an excessive number of false alarms, and must successfullydiagnose problems. The semi-empirical technique proposed herein by Barron Associates, Inc. and its academic partners at Princeton University takes a ...

  5. Advanced Multi-Temperature Load Cooler

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) requires the capability to provide cryogenic cooling for infrared sensing, cryogen management, electronics cooling, and superconductivity for long term (over five year) space missions. Multistage cryocoolers have thepotential to reduce the number of coolers needed on a spacecraft and, and therefore, reduce overall system mass and power consumption, and improve rel ...

  7. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: BLUE RIDGE NCA CORP./BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE ARCHITECTS            Topic: N/A

    We propose a software package that combines recent advances in several pattern recognition techniques, including neural networks, multivariate statistics and model-based reasoning. Results from these prognostics will be combined into a single probabilityof failure for the modeled component or subsystem of the ABL, which would be output to a simple graphical user interface (GUI). The preliminary so ...

  8. Smoothing of Military Mirrors by a Novel Surface Alloying and Melting Technique

    SBC: Brontek Delta Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The Be-B binary alloy system has a eutectic at 10 at. % boron, where the singular melting point is at 1120 oC. This value is some 169 degrees below the normal melting point of beryllium. The intent of the present STTR proposal is to use this circumstanceto develop a

  9. Ultra Tight GPS/INS Integration

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and develop an advanced GPS/INS integrated system for anti-jam and high dynamics conditions. Integration between GPS and INS will be performed in a federated sense using ultra-tight coupling. CRS has developed a novel GPS developmentsystem consisting of integrated software tools and hardware modules. These tools allow simulation and real-time implementation in a single step ...

  10. machine learning techniques for failure prediction in computer-controlled devices

    SBC: Cigital, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to implement an array of machine learning algorithms thatcan synthesize failure-prediction monitors with a minimum of human domain knowledge.Such a condition-monitor analyzes behavior data generated by computercontrolled devices --- data that can come from sensors on mechanicalequipment as well as sensors within the control software --- andidentifies evidence of impending malfunctions. ...
