  1. Small Engines Designed for High Efficiency, High Power Density and Quiet Operations

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: SB082010

    The overall objective of the Phase II proposed effort is to develop the crucial oil-free, high-speed power generation system technologies that will make a suite of small modular engines for power and propulsion having thermal efficiency greater than 25% and specific power > 1 HP/lb. The overall goal is an integrated, compact, and oil-free prototype 8-12 kW turbogenerator system. MiTi®’s key c ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    The proposed Phase II effort investigates innovative finite element formulations, alternative structural modeling procedures and modern parallel computational strategies to improve the computational performance of high fidelity simulation software for modeling the progressive collapse behavior of blast damaged buildings. Its goal is to reduce the time required to compute and visualize high fideli ...

  4. Building Recognition by Function

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: ST081009

    The goal of BLUE is to identify the function or purpose of buildings using persistant surveillance video such as Constant Hawk or Angel Fire. In Phase 1, we developed preliminary algorithms demonstrating that functional recognition of buildings and other scene elements such as parking spots and doorways is possible, using both supervised and unsupervised techniques to define functional models of b ...

  5. Static Analysis of Multi-Core Applications

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: SB072010

    Multi-core architectures, which recently have become pervasive, exposed the software-engineering community to a host of challenges. Applications that want to take a full advantage of a multi-core processor must be explicitly parallelized—a process that is hard and error prone. Additionally, the programs that have already been parallelized and shown to work robustly on a single-core processor oft ...

  6. Template-based Lithography for Advanced Low-Volume Electronics

    SBC: LITHOGRAPHIC TECHNOLOGY CORP. DBA AMPHIB            Topic: SB082043

    The goal of the Phase II of the project for template IL lithography is to develop a prototype system capable of regular interferometric based template lithography for cost effective, high resolution nanofabrication of low volume electronics to demonstrate the resolution and throughput performance necessary for 45nm lithography generations and beyond. This Phase II proposal will advance of the find ...

  7. An Open, Adaptive Geospatial Visual Information System

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: SB101006

    The military has an increasing amount and variety of data sources collected using state-of-the-art technologies. Further, there is rapid proliferation of handheld devices, meaning that every soldier may become a sensor and require access to the information stream. Such a rich information environment holds the potential to vastly increase the safety and effectiveness of missions. However, due to th ...

  8. Super 3D from Video

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: SB082028

    We propose to develop a novel approach to extracting 3D structure from wide-area video with sub-pixel accuracy. Multiple redundant video frames from very similar viewpoints enable super-resolution, while multiple frames from separated viewpoints enable 3D structure estimation. In our approach we will combine elements of the two processes through a variant of space carving, while avoiding the chall ...

  9. Human-Robot Instruction for Perceptual Teamwork

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: SB082031

    The main result of the proposed research program will be an integrated activity recognition and modeling software system that will operate on-board a mobile robot equipped with video cameras, and operating in highly dynamic and cluttered environments. The software will include a user feedback capability enabling the operator to teach the robot new activity models and correct its behavior dynamica ...

  10. Photonic Band Gap Structures for Solar Energy Generation

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: SB092002

    In Phase I, Phoebus Optoelectronics will assess the feasibility of using the diverse light management capabilities of plasmonic metamaterials in conjunction with functionalized ruthenium polypyridine compounds to create a novel multi-junction dye-sensitized solar cell that rivals the industry-leading efficiencies of vertically-stacked multi-junction cells but exhibits the much cheaper fabrication ...
