  1. Novel Fiber Optic Methods for Sensing Shape, Orientation and/or Heading of Undersea Arrays and Tethers

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N08T029

    In the Phase I STTR, N08-T029 “Novel Fiber Optic Methods for Sensing Shape, Orientation and/or Heading of Undersea Arrays and Tethers” a concept was developed for a fiber optic sensing array and shape reconstruction algorithm to be used for situation awareness of flexible undersea cable structures. Undersea cable structures are deployed in environments unsuitable for direct in-situ observation ...

  2. Integration of PALACE and Touchdown Planning Methods for Landing CUAS at Unprepared Sites

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT039

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT have been developing tools and techniques that, together with existing 3D environment decision-making and navigation tools developed by AMRDEC in the PALACE program, are well-suited to the problem of autonomous vertical landing on unprepared landing sites. In this program, Aurora will team with MIT researchers and UC Santa Cruz (UCSC licenses PALACE technologies for ...

  3. Adaptive Turbine Engine Control for Stall Threat Identification and Avoidance

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT008

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT propose to develop a model-based adaptive health estimation and real-time proactive control to identify gas turbine engine stability risks and avoid them through control action. In this concept, the engine control system actively monitors sensors and actuators, compares them against physical models, and infers which components may be performing poorly and may need to ...

  4. Demonstrated Environment/Harware Cooperation for Expanded Riverine Coverage

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N10AT024

    The Barron Associates/Virginia Tech team believes that intelligent use of ambient riverine environmental factors together with novel drifter design and low-energy articulation is the key to enabling large non-overlapping river coverage. The proposed phase I research program focuses on (1) identifying key river characteristics which may be leveraged by riverine drifters, (2) fabricating a novel riv ...

  5. Multi-Modal Knowledge Acquisition from Documents

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: N10AT019

    Images with associated text are now available in vast quantities, and provide a rich resource for mining for the relationship between visual information and semantics encoded in language. In particular, the quantity of such data means that sophisticated machine learning approaches can be applied to determine effective models for objects, backgrounds, and scenes. Such understanding can then be used ...

  6. Complex Event Detection in Video and Communications

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: N10AT040

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase-I project will constitute design of algorithms, toolsets, and interfaces to detect and visualize complex events from video and communications data. Our proposed system would be based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) which will allow users to integrate services and data from multiple sources and operate in a networked environment. The key ...

  7. Graded-Composition Refractory Coatings for Protection of Cu-Rails for Electromagnetic Launchers

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    The Navy is developing an electromagnetic (EM) launcher for long-range naval surface-fire-support. Severe operating conditions of the EM system place stringent requirements for materials, including high current and magnetic fields, high temperatures, contact with liquid metals, high stress/gouging from balloting contacts and high-speed-sliding electrical-contact with an Al armature. Engineered Coa ...

  8. Dynamic Physical/Data-Driven Models for System-Level Prognostics and Health Management

    SBC: Global Strategic Solutions, LLC            Topic: N10AT009

    Prognostics and health management (PHM) systems are critical for detecting impending faults and enabling a proactive decision process for maintenance or replacement of avionics systems before actual failures occur. A PHM system is essential to enhancing aircraft systems reliability and maintaining a high level of mission readiness and affordability. Current PHM advancements are focused on aircraft ...

  10. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...
