  1. Autonomous seafloor geotechnical property sensor

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services And Instrumentation Systems Inc            Topic: N06160

    Current geo-technical measurement systems are low resolution and generally require significant research vessel support. In this SBIR, the OASIS/WHOI team proposes to build a system that will remotely, autonomously and rapidly estimate and map shear strength parameters using state-of-the art Autonomous Undersea Vehicle (AUV) technology. The AUV-based Acoustic Sediment Classifier (ASC) is an inno ...

  2. Morphing High Temperature Shape Memory Alloy Actuators for Hypersonic Projectiles

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N05T013

    Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) materials present unique benefits to the control and stabilization of hypersonic projectiles. Midé and the University of Colorado at Boulder is concluded in Phase I that SMA materials offer distinct advantages for the control of hypersonic projectile through the development and analysis of concepts that could achieve the desired flight control characteristics within the ...

  3. VAMAV: Visual Collision Detection and Avoidance for a Micro Air Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF06149

    This proposal presents the VAMAV system (Visual Awareness/Avoidance for a Micro Air Vehicle) for monocular visual collision detection and avoidance. Real time collision detection will be implemented using a time-to-collision approach based on area moment estimates of expansion from globally optimal image segmentation. This approach does not require explicit optical flow computations, and avoids n ...

  4. Ethylene Control in Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

    SBC: PRIMAIRA, LLC            Topic: A06180

    The accumulation of ethylene in the transport and storage of fresh produce is an important problem for the US Army and for commercial agriculture. Certain fruits and vegetables generate ethylene as a natural part of their ripening cycle. Other fruits and vegetables are highly sensitive to the presence of ethylene, but may or may not produce the ethylene themselves. Small amounts of ethylene can in ...

  5. Model-based Automated Target ID and Pose Estimation from SAR and ISAR Data

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A06206

    Automatic Target Recognition and intent determination from airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) or Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) imaging requires highly accurate pose determination. Prior knowledge in the form of radar signatures of 3D target models that accurately capture locations of a few (

  6. Non-Contact, Non-Destructive Sensor for Wet Layer Thickness of Marine Paints

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N05068

    PSI proposes to develop a real-time standoff paint thickness sensor for marine paints utilizing time-domain terahertz technology. The THz transceiver will operate in a mode analogous to a pulsed radar ranging system. Ultrashort pulses, ~300 femtosecond full width half maximum, of low-power, eye-safe THz radiation, comprising wavelengths between about 30 and 1000 microns, are focused onto a freshly ...

  7. Long Lasting Insecticide Impregnated Bednets(1001-079)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A06156

    Building on the Phase I results, Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to further develop a long lasting insecticide-treated bednet (LLITN) with high insecticidal efficacy, long lasting residual property, UV-resistance, durability that is lightweight and easy to assemble. Our coating techniques that will be used in Phase II make it possible to increase the efficacy while reducing the dosage on the bednet. ...

  8. Combat Systems of the Future

    SBC: MIKEL, INC.            Topic: N05149

    The objective of this Phase II effort is to develop a prototype command and control system (Combat System of the Future) and associated concept of operations with the goals of improved automation, reduced manning and improved performance over current combat systems. This will be accomplished through the analysis of selected missions, first defining the specific decisions that must be made to accom ...

  9. STAR: Semantic Temporal Association Retrieval

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N06153

    Intelligence analysts gather and synthesize information from multiple sources in response to both high priority requests and standing topics. Their expertise enables them to evaluate and process information effectively. However, the time they spend searching for relevant information inevitably subtracts from the time available to develop analyses, especially predictions, from those data. As ops te ...

  10. Fast Automatic Targeting Algorithms for Hyperspectral Sensors

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A06045

    Smart and precision-guided Army weapons systems are being developed that use long- and mid-wave-infrared (LWIR and MWIR) hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensors for target detection and classification. New high-performance algorithms are needed to process the image signals rapidly enough for weapons targeting. A major challenge is that the IR spectral signature of a given object varies with surface ...
