  1. IMPROVED AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION METHODS FOR ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO EXAMINE A VARIETY OF AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION TECHNIQUES ESPECIALLY THOSE CONCERNING RECENT WORK ON PULSE SHAPE AND ELECTRONIC SIGNAL PROCESSING TO OBTAIN IMPROVED TARGET DETECTION PERFORMANCE FOR AN ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZE IN AN AEROSOL ENVIRONMENT. BASED ON THIS STUDY A SYSTEM CONCEPT WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DEMONSTRATE THE IMPROVED AEROSOL PERFORMANCE THAT IS OBTAINABLE AND THAT RELIAB ...

  2. ARMAMENT RESEARCH ANALYSIS

    SBC: Amparo Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. AIR FORCE HAS A NEED TO DEVELOP A GREATER CAPABILITY OF ANALYZING MUNITIONS/ARMAMENT INTERACTIONS. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE "HULL CODE" BE MODIFIED IN A WAY THAT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE ITS ABILITY TO DO THIS. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF VARIOUS NUMERIC IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED AND A TWO DIMENSIONAL PROOF OF CONCEPT TEST WILL BE CONDUCTED.

  3. 3-D OBJECT RECOGNITION IN A NEURAL NETWORK THAT PERFORMS SENSOR FUSION

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE FUSION OF SENSOR DATA TO PERFORM 3-D TARGET RECOGNITION FROM 2-D VIEWS IS AN INHERENTLY COMPLEX, COMPUTE-BOUND PROBLEM CHARACTERIZED BY AN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF PIXEL DATA WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED AND INTEGRATED INTO A SINGLE COHERENT DESCRIPTION OF OBJECTS IN AN IMAGE. NEURAL NETWORKS OFFER THE PROMISE OF PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS TO COMPUTER-BOUND PROBLEMS. ATLANTIC HAS BEEN PERFORMING LOW LEVEL F ...

  4. A NEW APPROACH TO E-3 (AWACS) SENSOR DATA FUSION USING MORPHOLOGICAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT THE EVALUATION OF A PROMISING PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY, MORPHOLOGICAL FILTERING, TO THE SENSOR DATA FUSION PROBLEM. THE E-3, AWACS FUSION PROBLEM, IS A DIFFICULT ONE BECAUSE OF THE PROJECTED LARGE NUMBER OF DYNAMIC AIRCRAFT TARGETS (UP TO 4000) AND LARGE NUMER OF SENSORS (UP TO 10) BEING CONSIDERED AS SOURCES TO BE FUSED. FAST MOVING AND MANEUVERING TARGETS OBSERVED ...

  5. INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS FOR FORCE SUPPORT FROM SPACE

    SBC: Berner, Lanphier & Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPERATIONAL MILITARY FORCES ARE IN NEED OF TIMELY, ALL-WEATHER TARGETING DATA. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE OF FORCES IN THE EUROPEAN THEATER, WHICH NEED TARGETING SUPPORT TO MEET THE OBJECTIVE OF THE NEW FOLLOW ON FORCES ATTACK (FOFA) STRATEGY FOR THE DEFENSE OF EUROPE. WE PROPOSE AN ASSESSMENT OF THE UTILITY AND FEASIBILITY OF A SPACE-BASED, PHASED ARRAY SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR (SAR) FOR PROVIDING ...

  6. TESTING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF USING CW SENSORS IN THE SCPS SYSTEM

    SBC: Blanchard & Co Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT INVOLVES THE USE OF CWREAL TIME SENSORS IN THE USAF SCPS SHELTER SYSTEM. IT TESTSTHE USEFULNESS OF HAVING REAL TIME SENSORS BY EXAMINING THE ANTICIPATED EFFECT ON LIFE CYCLE COST. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY EVALUATING ALL AVAILABLE SENSOR SYSTEMS, CURRENT PROCEDURES, AND DEVELOPING NEW INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES. THE EFFECT ON TRAINING AND ACCESS TIMES WILL BE CA ...

  9. APPLICATION OF OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY FOR REMOTE TEMPERATURE SENSING

    SBC: CAELUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    REDUCTION OF SATELLITE RADIANCE DATA TO TEMPERATURE PROFILES INVOLVES BOTH DIFFICULT MATHEMATICAL INVERSION ANALYSIS AS WELL AS COMPLICATED DATA PROCESSING. RECENTLY, THE APPLICATION OF THE OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY REPRESENTS A NOVEL APPROACH WHICH PROVIDE A SOLUTION FREE FROM THE NEED OF EXTERNALLY-IMPOSED CONSTRAINTS (KING, 1987). THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A SYSTEMATIC TECHNICAL ...
