  1. A Low-VOC Chromate-Free Primer

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N03161

    The Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAAV) is the United States Marine Corps' newest weapon system that moves three times faster and carries greater firepower than the current amphibian vehicle. The spectacular performance of the AAAV is due in part to the structural use of Aluminum alloy 2519-T87. Aluminum alloy 2519 is an Al-Cu alloy developed as a weldable material, and has ballistic pene ...

  2. A New Computing Paradigm for Energy-Efficient Collaboration in Underwater Sensor Networks

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N03224

    In this proposal, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) and its subtractor, Prof. Hairong Qi of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, propose a novel mobile-agent-based computing paradigm for collaborative information exchange among distributed sensor nodes. Unlike the traditional client/server-based method, the proposed mobile-agent-based approach transfers the partially integrated results and e ...

  3. A Novel Integrated Deception Recognition System Using Thermal and 3D/2D Imaging Analysis

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N04144

    Genex Technologies, Inc, in collaboration with Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) and University of Maryland (College Park), proposes herein an innovative three-dimensional (3D) thermal imaging system that is able to acquire multi-modality facial/head images and perform image analysis for the detection and recognition of thermal brain activity emanating from the skull over particular c ...

  4. A Novel Maximum Entropy Inference Engine for Data Fusion in Fault Diagnosis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N04T025

    Inferencing and reasoning algorithms are widely used in various applications where root causes need to be inferenced based on observed evidence. One typical application is fault diagnosis of complex systems based on symptoms reported by various diagnostic monitors. The symptoms may contain both continuous and discrete variables. Intelligent Automation, Inc. and Professor David J. Miller of Pen ...

  5. A Novel Speech Recognition Approach in Non-stationary and Chaotic Environment

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N04T012

    Existing speech recognition software such as IBM via Voice works well in quiet and stationary background noise environments. However, the recognition performance drops quite significantly in crowded and noisy control room, battle stations, emergency room, factory floor, etc. The main reason is that the noise is non-stationary and chaotic. In this proposal, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) and ...

  6. A Novel Target Maneuver Detection Technique with Range Rate Measurement

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N04241

    We propose a novel target maneuver detection technique using radar measurement including range rate for tracking and surveillance systems to reliably indicate the presence and magnitude of target maneuvers. There are several innovative elements in our approach: 1) a reliable test statistic indicating target maneuver and guaranteed quickest detection; 2) incorporating maneuver detection algorithm i ...

  7. A SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION TECHNICAL IS PROPOSED FOR NON-DESTRUCTIVE TEST TO DETECT UNBOUNDS IN LARGE BONDED COMPONENTS.

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    A SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION TECHNICAL IS PROPOSED FOR NON-DESTRUCTIVE TEST TO DETECT UNBOUNDS IN LARGE BONDED COMPONENTS. THE TECHNIQUE USES THE SYSTEM'S TIME RESPONSE DATA DUE TO RANDOM INPUT EXCITATION. SYSTEM'S EIGENVALUES AND EIGENVECTORS ARE RETRIEVED FROM THE TIME RESPONSES AND USED FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF ACCURATE SYSTEM MATHEMATICAL MODELS. SYSTEM'S CHANGE DUE TO CRACKS, VOIDS, UNBONDS BETWEEN ...

  8. Abstraction Layer for Advanced Reconfigurable Computing

    SBC: WW TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC            Topic: N04244

    We propose to develop a methodology and set of related products that allow FPGA applications to be hardware independent (allowing easy migration to new FPGAs), facilitate easy upgrade to add new firmware functionality, and reduce regression testing after system upgrades. Our approach is based on a framework populated by a suite of solutions that support the "end-to-end" development of embedded sy ...

  9. Active Depth Control System for Fatline Towed Arrays

    SBC: APPLIED FLUID TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N04034

    A design concept will be produced for controlling the depth of fatline-towed arrays independent of boat speed and tow scope. The system will utilize existing TB-16 modules, and only add to or replace some array components. Depth excursions will be maximized through a combination of lift, weight reduction, and buoyancy addition. The updated system will utilize existing SSN array elements for f ...

  10. Active Noise Reduction Technology

    SBC: Signal Systems Corporation            Topic: N04222

    Noise levels in crew compartments below the flight decks on Navy ships during flight operations have traditionally been extremely noisy due to jet engine noise as well as launch machinery transients. Levels exceed Navy desired levels by over 10 dB. Current state of the art materials do not work well at low frequencies. SSC proposes to develop an active noise solution that consists of a modular, f ...
