  1. Detector/Amplifier/Mixer Array for a Low Cost Imaging Ladar

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current production ladar system and components involve coherent optical system using pulse waveform. "bile demonstrating impressive accuracy and resolution, the system are coupler, difficult to manufacture, and thereby erpensive. An alternative approach is being investigated for short range system which uses an FM/CW waveform for ranging with incoherent light detection. This approach should prod ...

  2. Low Frequency (LF), Ultra Wideband (UWB), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Antennas Compatible with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) offer a lower risk and lower cost platform for the use of an Ultra Wide Band (UWE) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) system for the detection of ground targets concealed by foliage. Given the size, weight, and power restrictions of a UAV, an impulse radar is an attractive radar system alternative because it offers a lighter and lower cost solution than a traditional c ...

  3. Single Pixel FM/CW Range-Only Laser Radar (LADAR)

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The main thrust of this proposed effort is to design, develop, and fabricate a low cost, producible, robust and rugged, one pixel, range-only laser radar (Ladar) fuze sensor sufficient to support the safe and reliable delivery of a ballistic round against an intended target. A CW/FW waveform is planned for use to amplitude modulate the laser diode transmitter. The returned optical energy will be ...

  4. High Performance Miniature Antennas for Hand Held Personal Communication System

    SBC: ASTRON WIRELESS TECHNOLIGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The intent of this program is to develop workable concepts that will result in commercial and military high performance, covert, low cost, adaptable antennas in gain, coverage, and a variety of equipment applicability for hand held use. Ideally, the program will result in a technology capable of significantly foreshortening antennas (4:1) while maintaining low losses, hemispheric coverage, novel ...

  5. Shaped Virtual Reflector Antenna Synthesis

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In spite of the fact that powerful desktop computers are readily available, the mechanics of antenna design has changed very little as a result. Computers are being used, but only as high speed calculators to solve models that were developed 30 years ago. Two new developments in electromagnetics have been recently published. The first is a general antenna pattern synthesis algorithm developed by ...

  6. Staff Training in Information Management for Force XXI

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Recent cognitive research indicates that military teams operate effectively in high-stress, information-rich environments when they 1) share mental models of the battlefield situation and the team; 2) critique their situation model to develop clear goals for information retrieval; 3) effectively communicate information needs to others; and 4) anticipate and counteract information overload. We pro ...

  7. Interactions of Training and Decision Support: Measuring the Benefits in Trust, Situation Awareness, and Workload

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Inappropriate trust of automation can lead to suboptimal performance, in which the respective capabilities of humans and computers are not effectively exploited. In some cases, over- or under-reliance can lead to catastrophe. The primary objectives of the proposed Phase I work are (1) to develop a systematic general framework for training users of decision aids, with particular attention to the ...

  8. Microstructurally Tailored High Temperature Metal Matrix Composites for Advanced Turbines

    SBC: CORDEC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Successful development of advanced turbine engines will depend heavily upon rapid development of new, reliable, lightweight metal matrix composites (MMC's) having unprecedented high temperature properties. Recent developments in the manufacture of MMC's by vapor deposition methods offer the prospect of producing polyphase microcomposite precursors in the form of continuous monofilaments or thin m ...

  9. Reactor for Control of Fugitive Emissions of Toxic Gases

    SBC: Coyote Aerospace/high Mesa            Topic: N/A

    A need to control the fugitive emissions of hazardous vapors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) has been identified in operations at Army plants and depots. The High Mesa Technologies (HMT)/Coyote Aerospace team proposes to meet this need using proven silent discharge plasma (SDP) techniques, developed by the Electric Power Research Institute and Los Alamos Nat ...

  10. A RSTA Algorithmic Framework with Uncertainty Management

    SBC: Cyber Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the most challenging information management problems related to the Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition (RSTA) missions is the real-time spatio-temporal fusion of target-specific cues from a netwotk of multiple sensor platforms. A robust algorithmic framework is necessary to involve the multiple agents together and achieve the optimal trade-off between low false alarm rate ...
