  4. COLLECTIVE/COOPERATIVE NAVIGATION

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF173011

    Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) is a critical capability that has become indispensable to the United States military, government services, and the commercial sector. As GPS-jamming technology becomes both more widely available and less costly, it becomes increasingly more critical to provide resilient navigation and timing independent of GPS. Under this effort, Numerica Corporation proposes ...

  5. Dual-mode Energetics

    SBC: Rocky Mountain Scientific Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF173012

    RMSL has identified several potential propellant formulations that show promise in dual mode applications. These formulations include: (1) development of a novel organic oxidizer and (2) the mechanical modification of traditional nitramine propellants to tune propulsion and detonability performance.Preliminary analysis suggested that the proposed new explosive, MHX, had promise for dual-mode appli ...

  10. Global Surveillance Augmentation Using Commercial Satellite Imaging Systems

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF153001

    ABSTRACT:A system is proposed to access, collate and process imagery from multiple small satellite constellations. The imagery is fused and registered to a common reference so that exploitation algorithms, such as change detection and event monitoring, are reported with accurate geographic coordinates. The system, called SatTel, is implemented as open source software that is designed to run on the ...
