  1. Developing an Interoperable Contextual Fusion Platform

    SBC: Ultra-Scan Corporation            Topic: A09075

    The use of contextual information is often a weak, error prone and labor intensive method of identifying and tracking Persons of Interest (POI). Ultra-Scan’s Phase I work successfully applied Neyman-Pearson fusion to weak contextual data, resulting in a powerful new algorithm that fuses discrete contextual data with biometrics in order to significantly improve system accuracy. Ultra-Scan’s alg ...

  2. Automated Manufacturing of Composite Materials including Armament Applications

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: A09031

    Automated fiber placement (AFP) of thermoplastic (TP) composite jackets around large caliber gun barrels and railgun cores has enabled a dramatic increase in lethality while meeting aggressive maneuver requirements. Automated Dynamics has played a central role in the development of TP AFP technology and its use for this application. There is a continuing need to improve safety, temperature capab ...

  4. Perching Micro Air Weapon

    SBC: AETHERMACHINES INC            Topic: AF083096

    The objective of Phase II R&D concerns micro air vehicles (MAVs). These MAVs are typically used for remote, surreptitious surveillance using video links. Under Phase I, AetherMachines Inc. has developed and test flown a MAV employing many new features which extend MAV capabilities and mission duration significantly. First, it has a very unique ‘insect like’ topology which enables great maneuv ...

  5. Innovative Concepts for Ultra-light and Reliable Hydraulic Actuators

    SBC: Demeton Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N08119

    It is proposed to initiate a research program to design and manufacture a composite housing gear system for the next generation of NAVY F/A-18 and F-35 aircrafts. The present systems use steel housing which lack the low weight requirements for the design of the Wing Fold Transmission systems. The proposed effort relies on replacing the current steel made Ring Gear Housing System with the Carbon Re ...

  6. Minority carrier lifetime measurements in Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS)

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: A09AT005

    We propose the development of a system for measuring the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices (SLS). Mid wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) detectors based on SLS technology show promise due to the large and inexpensive focal plane arrays that can be fabricated. The devices are held back though, by excessive dark current, which is related to a poor minority car ...

  9. Vision with a Purpose: Inferring the Function of Objects in Video

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: SB082021

    On Phase 1, we developed an approach to functional object recognition that learns functional models from video tracks in an unsupervised fashion. On Phase 2, we will expand the algorithms and concepts developed on Phase 1 into a comprehensive prototype system that performs functional object recognition across a wide variety of object classes. The system will be robust against track fragmentation a ...

  10. Common Gravity Dropped Small Weapon Electronic Safe Arm Fuze (ESAF)

    SBC: OMNITEK PARTNERS LLC            Topic: AF083089

    The objective of this project is to develop innovative means to effectively enable Safe/Arm (S/A) functionally within gravity dropped small weapons. Several concepts have been developed and their feasibility demonstrated during the Phase I of this project. Methods have also been developed for their optimal design. The developed concepts are suitable for weapons dropped from any altitude. Fully ele ...
