  1. Techniques for Automatically Exploiting Passive Acoustic Sonar Data

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N06138

    The Navy reduced manning requirements drive the need for more sonar automation. Automatically detecting and classifying targets of interest meets the challenge of reduced manning and workloads required for passive anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and torpedo detection, classification and localization (TDCL). Under SBIR Phase I Topic N06-138, the team of 3 Phoenix, Inc and General Dynamics - Advanced I ...

  3. Embedded Training Techniques for Target Discrimination Systems

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N08209

    Complex systems such as the SPS-74(V) Periscope Detection Radar automatic target recognition system present difficult training challenges for enhancing and maintaining operator proficiency. Technical challenges arise from the nature of software automation. The most difficult recognition cases can usually be trained effectively only with actual sensor data. Keeping the proficiency training curren ...

  4. In situ learning for underwater object recognition

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N091066

    Sea mines are a cost-effective method for hostile forces to attempt to neutralize assets of the U.S. Navy by limiting mobility and creating delay. Mine detection, classification and localization (DCL) is very challenging in littoral environments due to the high clutter, increased background, and dense multipath. 3 Phoenix, Inc. has developed an innovative approach for automatic target detection an ...

  5. Hand Deployed Situational Awarness Sensor for Shipboard Damage Control

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N07132

    Damage sustained on board a US Naval vessel is a serious situation. Rapid situational assessment of a damaged compartment by a rugged, hand-deployed, situational sensor would be advantageous in coordinating a response, mitigating additional damage to the ship and crew, and preserving the ship’s mission. Such a device must be able to withstand shock, heat, flooding, and other hazardous environmen ...

  6. Exercise Torpedo End-Of-Run (EOR) Global Positioning System (GPS) Locator

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N091056

    The US Navy seeks the development of a miniature transponder locator unit, capable of sustaining high shock loads that can be placed in both lightweight and heavyweight exercise torpedoes for rapid torpedo recovery. Currently, a considerable amount of time and resources is expended to visually search for the exercise torpedo after the end of run, and the solicitation aims to develop a system that ...

  7. Advanced Flight Deck Data and Voice Communications

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N091012

    Adaptive Technologies, Inc. (ATI) and Fortress Technologies have teamed to develop advances in flight deck data and voice communications for use by the Aviation Data Management and Control System (ADMACS) program. This unique challenge of providing operational, noise-free, voice-enabled data management in a flight deck environment, with wireless network integration to the existing ADMACS shipboard ...

  8. Development of Ultra-High Strength Intrinsically Corrosion Resistant Steels Using High Pressure Powder Compaction Technology

    SBC: UTRON KINETICS LLC            Topic: OSD09C04

    In response to OSD/NAVY’s need for landing gear component applications, We propose to develop advanced high strength steels using CDC compaction manufacturing. Common materials used are 4340 steel, 300M, and AerMet 100. AerMet 100 has superior material properties to 4340 and 300M. Landing gear components made from AerMet 100 has had success within the USN. However this is an expensive and limite ...

  9. Design Tools for Applying Characteristic Modes to Platform Integrated Antennas

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: N08T023

    Physical insights provided by the Characteristic Mode (CM) theory are utilized to optimize HF, VHF, and UHF antennas onboard small low-cost autonomous scouting/surveillance UAVs. Increasing demand for real-time high data rate communication links between mobile or short-term stationary network nodes (such as base stations and command centers) necessitates smaller conformal antennas with continuous ...

  10. Metamaterial-Based Electrically Small Antenna

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: N07184

    Small antennas are required to support surveillance sensors, communication links, navigation systems, command and control systems, and precision strike capabilities on Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV). Research advancements in metamaterials show promise in the design of high efficiency small antennas. Under this project, Applied EM is proposing to develop electrically small antenna designs us ...
