  1. FUNCTIONAL INTEGRAL FORMULATION OF THREAT AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING

    SBC: A & D Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN COMPUTATION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS PARALLEL PROCESSING ARE WELL-SUITED FOR THE SOLUTION OF SUCH PROBLEMS AS THE SIMULTANEOUS GLOBAL EXTREMIZATION OF MULTIPLE VARIABLES IN A COMPLEX, NONLINEAR, PROBABILISTIC STATE SPACE. HOWEVER, THE USE OF THESE TECHNIQUES TO SOLVE A GIVEN PROBLEM REQUIRES THAT IT FIRST BE FORMULATED IN THESE TERMS. CURRENTLY, THREAT-AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING IS APPROACHED AS ...

  2. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Shelter enclosures for military working dogs in the event of a CB attack is a technology gap identified by the Joint Requirements Office. Important parameters to consider in the design of protective enclosures include low weight and size to minimize transport requirements; rapid setup; and accommodation of canine physiological and psychological comfort needs while providing protection against CB ...

  3. ATTENTION IN ACTIVE VISION

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN ATTENTION MECHANISM CAN INFLUENCE SYSTEM BEHAVIOR AND PERFORMANCE ONLY TO THE EXTENT IN WHICH SYSTEM RESOURCES ARE ALLOCATABLE. A KEY VISUAL SYSTEM RESOURCE IS ACUITY, AND YET THIS RESOURCE IS FIXED IN CONVENTIONAL UNIFORM ACUITY MACHINE VISION. FEATURES TO BE RESOLVED BY ACTIVE VISION ARE TYPICALLY LOCALIZED WITHIN THE FOV. UNIFORM SAMPLING WITHIN THE FOV IS THUS INAPPROPRIATE; REGIONS WITH LI ...

  5. Snapshot Raman Spectral Imager

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: A09AT009

    Applied Quantum Technologies along with its university partner Duke University propose a coded-aperture, multi-aperture snapshot Raman imager. By combining an innovative optical design and advanced compressed sensing algorithms, a snapshot system provides dwell times much shorter than conventional slit-based or tunable-filter based spectral imagers. A short-wave infrared excitation source allows f ...

  6. High Resolution 3D Reconstruction from Wide-Area Video

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC            Topic: SB082028

    Applied Science Innovations, Inc. in collaboration with Lockheed Martin Corporation proposes development of the Super-resolved Volumetric Imagery from Video Aerial Surveillance (SVIVAS) – a novel set of image processing algorithms to produce, with modern wide area video sensors, highly accurate 3D models of the area under surveillance, with voxel sizes one-half of the sensor fundamental ground s ...

  7. QUASI-OPTICAL INJECTION LOCKING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Avoca Laboratorytories            Topic: N/A

    IN A QUASI-OPTICAL OSCILLATOR ARRAY THE OUTPUT OF A LARGE NUMBER OF OSCILLATORS ARE COMBINED COHERENTLY WITH GOOD EFFICIENCY TO PRODUCE HIGH POWERS AT MILLIMETER-WARE FREQUENCIES. BY PLACING THE ARRAY IN A FABRY-PEROT RESONATOR, HIGH QUALITY FACTORS CAN BE ACHIEVED. TO FURTHER IMPROVE THE STABILITY OF THE OUTPUT SIGNAL, AN EXTERNAL LOCKING SIGNAL CAN BE USED. THE LOCKING SIGNAL PREVENTS THE ARRAY' ...

  8. QUASI-OPTICAL POWER COMBINER MODELLING

    SBC: Avoca Laboratorytories            Topic: N/A

    QUASI-OPTICAL OSCILLATOR ARRAYS PROVIDE A MEANS OF COMBINING THE OUTPUT OF A LARGE NUMBER OF DEVICES TO OVERCOME THE LIMITED POWER HANDLING CAPABILITIES OF INDIVIDUAL MILLIMETER WAVE SOLID-STATE DEVICES. BECAUSE OF THE HIGH-FREQUENCY OF OPERATION AND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE NON-LINEAR INTERACTIONS, THE ACCURATE ANALYSIS OF THESE SYSTEMS PRESENTS MANY CHALLENGES. MODELING REQUIRES ADVANCED ELECTROMAG ...

  9. DEMONSTRABLY CORRECT COMPILATION (DCC)

    SBC: Baldwin/mchugh Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A TECHNIQUE FOR OBTAINING TRUSTWORTHY COMPILATION BASED ON A COMPILATION CHECKER (SIMILAR TO A PROOF CHECKER) IS PROPOSED. THE TRANSFORMATIONS USED IN A COMPILER WILL BE FORMALLY SPECIFIED AND VERIFIED USING INTERPRETER EQUIVALENCE METHODS. THE COMPILER WILL BE INSTRUMENTED TO PRODUCE A TRACE OF THE TRANSFORMATIONS APPLIED IN THE COMPILATION OF A GIVEN PROGRAM. THE COMPILATION CHECKER WILL VALIDAT ...

  10. Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor Based Feature Aided Tracking

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: SB091004

    The primary objective of this effort is to research and develop advanced algorithms suitable for spectral signature extraction and spectral matching to improve full motion video (FMV) multi-target track longevity and purity. Black River Systems Company proposes a systems level approach to improving and evaluating performance using hyperspectral feature-aided association to achieve greater track li ...
