  1. Distributed Deep Learning and Sensing

    SBC: Intelligent Models Plus Inc.            Topic: AF191062

    Compared to current practices of todays processing, exploitation, and dissemination (PED) cycles for fusing the outputs of single-sensor-processing chains during the feature- or decision-level fusion tasks, combining modalities at the data level to learn the target-signatures offers an opportunity to utilize the mutual information among the raw signals generated by the same target. Hence, the auto ...

  2. Sensor System for Real Time Observation of High Energy Laser Effects

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: AF191018

    The Air Force has a requirement for a real-time system to monitor High Energy Laser (HEL) damage effectiveness and provide laser hazard assessment.Due to target reflective properties and environmental conditions, HEL effectiveness may be compromised, so operators require real-time assessment to determine if lasing should continue or if other methods should be employed.To keep operators safe, laser ...

  3. FSO and RF Integrated Aerial Communications (FaRIA-C)

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF191059

    Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems offer extremely high throughput links over long distances, with impressive LPI/LPD characteristics. However, they are often susceptible to deep fades due to atmospheric effects or terrain blockage, as well as scattering due to scintillation. High-rate radio frequency (RF) communications systems currently offer data rates approximately an order of magn ...

  4. MDAnalystField-level Detection of Metal Additive Deactivators in Aviation Fuels

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF191028

    Aircraft fuel is one of many critical components required to ensure fleet readiness in the Air Force.As a result of the high demand for fuel, military aviation is increasingly reliant upon readily available commercial-grade fuels supplied from a number of disparate sources as opposed to fuels specifically formulated per military specifications.Since commercial grade aviation fuel formulations do n ...

  5. Bandwidth Constrained Electronic Warfare--19-015

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF191061

    In this project we extend the general framework for cognitive sensing to the problem of a network and bandwidth constrained Tactical Electronic Warfare system.The cognitive framework provide the context for establishing Quality of Service measures against which the tactical picture produced by the tracking and fusion component of the Fully Adaptive EW Architecture (FAEA) is continuously assessed.T ...

  6. Capping Material for Compacted Runway Crater Repairs

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF183014

    Adequate airfield facilities are critical for successful operation of the US Air Force, and rapid recovery of flight operation is imperative when the runway has succumbed to damage. The US Air Force has invested significant resources into a rapid airfield damage recovery (RADR) sequence that restores the substructure and surface of runway craters, but the moisture-cured capping material used in th ...

  7. Nonmixing, Rapid-escape Airlock

    SBC: Ryzing Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF191023

    The rapid escape airlock proposed here will yield a solution that minimizes air volume and maintains continual passage through the decontamination area. This solution will remove 99.99% of contaminants and allow passage for one individual in less than 60 seconds. The structure of this airlock will incorporate inflatable rollers connected by a vertical fabric belt that seals the airlock cavity. The ...

  8. Integrated Self-assembled ChemFETs for Real-Time Monitoring of Fluorocarbons

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: AF182012

    This Air Force Phase I SBIR program would develop integrated chemical sensors using our self- assembled ChemFET for real-time detection of fluorocarbons such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) in subsurface groundwater. We would combine our patented nanotechnology thin film deposition processelectrostatic self-assembly (ESA), and miniaturized ChemFET technolog ...

  9. Target ID and Radar Backtracking of Anti-Aircraft Projectiles---18-068

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF182110

    Anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) pose a significant threat to military aircraft such as the F-35 and AC-130, as well as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The goal of this effort is to develop a knowledge-aided Bayesian inference algorithm that uses the available radar sensors on board the aircraft along with prior knowledge about AAA physical characteristics and topographical constraints to detect and ...

  10. Target ID and Radar Backtracking of Anti-Aircraft Projectiles

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: AF182110

    AAA, SAMs and future rail-gun weapons present a significant threat to USaircraft including the F-35 JSF and AC-130 in contested areas. In Phase 1, TSC will investigate radar-based approaches to both identify AAA and SAMs on the battlefield and to detect and backtrack their projectiles to their points of origin. TSC will also develop an air combat decision aid that predicts AAA sites based on topog ...
