  1. ADVANCED AI TECHNIQUES FOR MULTIACUITY ATR

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

    A FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM IN AUTOMATIC TARGET RECOGNITION (ATR) IS THE OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF SENSOR DATA WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED. MANY ADVANCED ATR ALGORITHMS WHICH REDUCE THE FALSE ALARM RATE CANNOT BE EXECUTED IN REAL TIME DUE TO COMPUTATIONAL COMPLEXITY. THIS LIMITS OVERALL SYSTEM PERFORMANCE. IN ATR, THE FEATURES THAT MUST BE RESOLVED ARE LOCALIZED WITHIN THE FIELD-OF-VIEW (FOV) OF THE SENSOR. UN ...

  2. ADVANCED FUEL CELLS

    SBC: Treadwell Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE MOST CRITICAL ASPECT OF THE RADIO FREQUENCY POWER SUPPLY FOR THE NEUTRAL PARTICLE BEAM INTEGRATED EXPERIMENT IS ITS POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO. IN ADDITION, THE SPACE-QUALIFIED 45V POWER SUPPLY MUST BE ABLE TO SUPPLY 27,000 AMP PULSES DOWN TO 350 MICROSECONDS WITH ONLY A 2 - 3% VOLTAGE DROP. PROTON EXCHANGE MEMBRANE FUEL CELLS HAVE POTENTIALLY THE HIGHEST POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO OF ANY TYPE OF FUEL C ...

  3. An Alternate Corrosion Resistant Coating to be Applied to Magnesium Components

    SBC: UNITED PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF183018

    The Air Force needs to identify and qualify a corrosion resistant coating applicable to magnesium gearboxes, covers and other secondary power system parts. Current coatings, considered corrosion resistant, are often barely better than no coating at all. According to the web sources for FY 2008 – 2009, the cost of corrosion to the Air Force was $4.5 billion, with 24% of maintenance cost cont ...

  4. A NEW SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENT FOR BIOGENETIC TOXICITY TESTING

    SBC: North Star Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASED ON OUR RESEARCH, WE FEEL THAT THE STAINING PROPERTIES OF SITS (4-ACETOAMIDO-4'-ISOTHIOCYANOSTILBENE 2,2' DISULPHONIC ACID), A REAGENT WHICH ENABLES IN SITU VISUALIZATION AND DISCRIMINATION AMONG LIVING, DYING AND DEAD CELLS, MAKE IT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR USE IN AN APPROPRIATELY DESIGNED INSTRUMENT. WE PROPOSE AN AUTOMATED VIDEO MICROSCOPE WITH MEMORY AND POSSIBLE REMOTE VIEWING CAPABILITY. IT ...

  5. A Next Generation, High-Precision, Field Drug Detection System

    SBC: SensoDX II, LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    The synthetic opioids fentanyl and carfentanil pose an imminent national security threat, given the ease with which they can be obtained, their low lethal doses, and their potential for weaponized use. The purpose of this agreement is to adapt SensoDx’s high-performance miniaturized diagnostics platform based on a programmable bio-nano-chip, with embedded artificial intelligence, to enable U.S. ...

  6. ANGRIBRD: ANGR for Intelligent Binary Runtime Defense

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF182104

    This project will investigate the use of offensive binary analysis techniques to extract data from program binaries for use by a runtime diagnostic engine capable of malware detection and response. The open-source Angr framework provides the basis for the tools used to collect the analysis data needed to support a diagnostic engine. A diagnostic engine capable of using these collected results will ...

  7. ANIMATED COMPUTER GRAPHICS MODELING OF ROLLING BEARINGS DYNAMICS

    SBC: Pradeep K Gupta Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN ANIMATED GRAPHICS MODEL TO SIMULATE DYNAMIC MOTIONS IN ROLLING BEARINGS IS PROPOSED. FOR A TYPICAL TURBINE ENGINE BALL BEARING, AND EXISTING BEARING DYNAMICS COMPUTER PROGRAM SHALL BE USED TO OBTAIN A REAL-TIME SIMULATION OF GENERAL MOTION OF THE BEARING ELEMENTS. THIS SIMULATED MOTION SHALL THEN BE USED TO COMPUTE FUNDAMENTAL COORDINATE TRANSFORMATIONS WHICH WILL BE APPLIED ON GRAPHICS SEGMENT ...

  8. AN INTELLIGENT KNOWLEDGE SYSTEM FOR SELECTION OF MATERIALS FOR CRITICAL AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS (IKSMAT)

    SBC: Mpd            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROJECT WOULD ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY AND DEVELOP THE SPECIFICATIONS AND WORK PLAN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROTOTYPE COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM (PHASE II) FOR THE SELECTION AND PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF CRITICAL AEROSPACE COMPONENTS. THE SYSTEM WOULD PROVIDE A RELIABLE MATERIALS PROPERTY KNOWLEDGE BASE AND THE INFERENCE CAPABILITY TO PERMIT RAPID AND SOPHISTICATED COMPARISONS OF CANDI ...

  9. Application of Commercial Technologies to Generate Quasi-5th Gen Unmanned ADAIR

    SBC: Blue Force Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF192001

    USAF will spend $6B on contractor Adversary Air (ADAIR) in the next 10 years, and likely an equivalent amount on self-generated ADAIR for F-22 and F-35, which currently have no viable Red counterpart. By 2030, the total number USAF ADAIR sorties fall between 65,000 (minimum) and 150,000 (desired), which will overwhelm the enterprise, irrespective of cost. Estimates are that 60% of these sorties ar ...
