  1. Laser/Microwave Energy Deposition to Improve Control/Performance of High Speed Vehicles

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF103009

    ABSTRACT:In this effort, we will couple the energy of focused microwave bursts into the air and onto surfaces by first forming a laser plasma. The presence of the laser plasma allows much lower microwave intensities to couple their energy to the laser-pre-ionized surface or air- volume, allowing more efficient energy-transfer and the use of lower-power microwave systems to achieve the desired effe ...

  2. Implementing the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm for Imaging in Daylight and Strong Turbulence

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF103017

    ABSTRACT:A new algorithm, the Daylight Object Restoration Algorithm (DORA), has been developed. DORA includes a novel implementation of the multi-frame blind deconvolution image restoration concept which recovers high-quality object estimates from sequences of degraded images. DORA removes the effects of atmospheric aberration in images recorded at ground-based telescopes, and is designed to opera ...

  3. SAGES II: System Acquisition Guidance from Expert Systems

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF112019

    ABSTRACT:The high costs and inherent dangers of live training with air platforms have motivated the increasing use of simulation-based training. However, selecting a system to effectively meet training objectives can be challenging, particularly one that must blend multiple disparate technologies. Among these challenges is the need to acquire visual display systems that optimally support training ...

  4. Miniature High-Altitude Precision Navigation Alternative

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF121091

    ABSTRACT:Todays advanced precision guided weapons rely on GPS/INS-based solutions to provide accurate navigation data, enabling the munition to adjust its path to reach the target.While this approach is effective when GPS is available, new approaches are needed that can achieve accurate navigation when operating in a GPS-denied environment.In response, vendors are developing new navigation-aiding ...

  5. Wireless Power for Battlefield Airmen Operation

    SBC: ArmorWorks, Inc.            Topic: AF121192

    ABSTRACT:A phase II program is proposed leading to integrate wireless inductive power transfer technology on two prototype tactical vests. The focus of the phase II program would be the development and evaluation of a full-scale inductive power transfer system on a PRC-152 radio by both modifying and interfacing its battery. Because a mating vest/pouch that contains inductive charging circuits so ...

  6. Forecasting Dynamic Group Behavior in Social Media

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: ST12B002

    Organized groups are become increasingly adept at using social media to influence public discourse. The fast pace and global reach of social media allow groups for form and mobilize in minutes and dissolve as rapidly as they appeared. In Phase I, we 1)

  7. Holographic Video Display Using Novel Guided-wave Scanning System

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF131023

    ABSTRACT:Todays analysts need improved 3D visualization tools to assist in critical situations such as deconfliction, line-of-sight analysis, air space and satellite control.Currently available 3D displays cannot provide the level of detail and comfort needed because the displays contain unacceptable visual artifacts, do not provide full parallax, require special headgear, and induce nausea in man ...

  8. Group 4-5 UAS integration of terminal area sensors & operations in the terminal area for Airborne Sense and Avoid

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF131131

    ABSTRACT:Integration of track data from Ground Based Sense and Avoid (GBSAA) and Airborne Sense and Avoid (ABSAA) systems offer the possibility of significantly improved terminal airspace tracks because they often have complementary sensing geometries and measurement error statistics.Under Phase 1, Systems & Technology Research (STR) demonstrated a multi-hypothesis tracking and fusion capability t ...

  9. Heterojunction GeSn based Photonic Devices

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: AF141002

    ABSTRACT: Si photonic devices based on GeSn materials will be very important for the MWIR. The Air Force recognizes the need for next-generation high-performance photonic materials in the SWIR to MWIR infrared spectrum, due in part to the atmospheric high transmissive windows in this wavelength ranges. Due to materials limitations, silicon based photonic devices have not been utilized in this wa ...

  10. SMART Bandage for Monitoring Wound Perfusion

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141005

    ABSTRACT: Continuous supply of oxygen to the tissue is essential for wound healing and resistance to infection. Oxygen provides the additional energy source for the repairing process. In the early stage of wound repair, fibroblasts start to migrate, divide, and produce collagen. To promote fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis, oxygen must be present in sufficient quantities. Angiogenes ...
