  3. Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR)


    NadirSAR offers high-resolution imaging of targets, lines of communication, and buildings in urban canyons, rough terrain and light foliage areas. This capability can bridge the gap between down-looking LIDAR sensors and side-looking microwave and foliage penetrating UHF SAR systems such as TRACER. In a previous effort for RRTO, TSC and SDL experimentally demonstrated the feasibility of X-band Nad ...

  5. Development of a Military Hardened Expeditionary, Energy Efficient and Waterless/Low-Flow Laundry System

    SBC: Moniteq, Inc.            Topic: A17072

    A reduced water flow/low energy consumption laundry system is proposed. The system will use advanced oxidation processing (AOP) coupled with ultrasound assisted conventional laundering. The design will permit disinfection in cold water washing with corresponding energy savings. It will also include a recycled system to reuse 80% of the water. The system will be designed to be self contained and fi ...

  6. Cyber Ontology Development

    SBC: SILVER BULLET SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A15036

    The objective of this work is the development of a mathematical ontology for cyber events, entities and their associations and intentionscyber Situation Awareness (SA)and associated cyber Command and Control (C2). We use the qualifier mathematical to mean that in such an ontology, every Type (Class) has a distinct mathematical interpretation to differentiate from many so-called ontologies today di ...

  7. Methods for Determining Threat Level and Intent of Unmanned Aerial Systems

    SBC: Saze Technologies, LLC            Topic: A17015

    Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) poses a growing threat to our national security. Commercially available UASs can now carry explosives, and perform electronic surveillance missions with an increasing range against our military, cities, infrastructure, population and information. Swarm attacks are possible by automated drones and dirty bombs can be dropped in populated areas.Due to the ease of small ...

  8. VLAD (Vehicle Localization Augmentation for DIsmounts)

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: A17AT017

    The goal of the proposed work is to create a suite of sensor processing algorithms and techniques that will result in the dismount localization system initializing and maintaining a good result while riding in a vehicle. The result of such a goal is that a user will be able to seamlessly exit the vehicle and perform their mission, all while still maintaining a high accuracy localization solution. ...
