  1. Militarized Power Line Communication

    SBC: 5-D SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD12EP7

    Significant energy is required to operate and maintain the extensive U.S. military mission around the world. This equates to significant costs to the country. Smart power microgrids have proven to significantly increase efficiency, as well as enable the u

  2. Autonomy Management Platform

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: OSD12HS1

    Autonomous vehicles are becoming more and more integral to our nation's defense. There is a desire to increase the autonomy of these vehicles and enable humans to delegate those tasks that are more effectively done by computer. Achieving this will require

  3. Coalition of Operators and Automation for Collaborative Tasking (COACT)

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: OSD13HS5

    Increasing the autonomy of unmanned vehicles potentially reduces operator workload and cognitive load. Realizing the promise of autonomy however, is difficult when deploying in environments with mobility and visibility challenges, enemy threats, risks of endangering civilians, and limited communication. Achieving full autonomy in the face of these challenges is both a hard technical problem and do ...

  4. Recognizing Event Attributes in Unstructured Text (REACT)

    SBC: LANGUAGE COMPUTER CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD5

    During REACT Phase II LCC will develop an end-to-end autonomous system to extract many types of attributes for all types of events from large amounts of unstructured text with state-of-the-art accuracy, with the overall goal of making sure this information is structured in a way that can easily be used by human analysts or by other intelligence applications.

  5. Adaptive Data Compression for Efficient File Transport Over Wireless Networks

    SBC: Artery Communication            Topic: N/A

    Because of the scarce network bandwidth available on the wireless links, data compression plays a critical role in the wireless system design. We propose to evaluate existing public-domain and commercial lossless data compression packages in the context of wireless networking. The specific criteria used include compression efficiency, compression speed, memory usage, and ease of being incorporat ...

  6. Ultra-Textured Active polymer (UTAP) Composite for High-Performance Intelligent Acoustic Transducers

    SBC: Ceramare Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project seeks to combine the enhanced piezoelectric properties of single crystal perovskite ferroelectrics, recently discovered at Pennsylvania State University, with the electrostrictive properties of polyurethane to make a new class of "smart" materials for acoustic transducers. A tape casting process is used to form composite sheets compromising ...

  7. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...

  8. An Advanced Aerodynamic Module for Flight Simulation Including Unsteady Aerodynamics and Wake Distortion Effects

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    An improved computer module for representing rotor flow field effects on flight dynamics response is proposed for development. This model extends finite-state dynamic inflow models to address current limitations in predicting rotorcraft off-axis response to control inputs. The software module also includes features for representing rotor operation in the vortex ring state. The model is novel ...

  9. Data Compression Techniques for Portable Computing Environments

    SBC: Fastman, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The capability to transmit digitized reports to rear echelon forces during an ongoing battle is a critical command and control component. However, projections of the amount of digital traffic over transmissions links raise the distinct possibility that the demand for digital information tranmitted across the battlefield will outstrip channel capacity. Being able to reduce the quantity of traffic ...

  10. Optical Patternation of Sprays

    SBC: PRINCETON SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposal is to develop a high frame rate imaging system for combustion and other research, by combining a solid state camera capable of capturing images of transient photometric phenomena at framing rates up to 1,000,000 frames per second with the laser sheet illumination technology that has been developed by the Propulsion Directorate of Phillips Laboratory. Both instrumental technologies ar ...
