  1. High Voltage, High Power Diamond Solid-State Switch for Pulsed Power and Other Applications

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes a three phase effort with the ultimate goal of producing a marketable diamond switch suitable for several pulsed power and other applications in the defence arena. The presently used spark gaps have several drawbacks including switch jitter, large and variable inductance, lifetime and physical size. A low inductance solid-state switch capable ...

  2. Feasibility of Using a Systems Analytic Technique to Model the Critical Processess Supporting Proliferation of Weapons..

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal investigates the feasibility of using a systems analytic approach to model the critical processes supporting proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. It uses as a framework for synthesis a previously developed systems analysis model of biological weapons proliferation. The proposed approach consists of four tasks to: 1) extend the BW analytical process to encompass all WMD, 2) d ...

  3. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Concealed Weapons

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify concealed weapons. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by algo ...

  4. Automated Target Assessment Development Environment

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Automated processing of sensor/signal data and other non-sensor information provides substantial force-multiplying benefits. The timely and cost-effective leveraging of these types of information provides a significant advantage over adversaries not possessing comparable information processing capabilities. The intelligent processing of diverse types of data provides a target assessment technology ...

  6. VOLUME HOLOGRAPHIC, RANDOM ACCESS, NO MOVING PARTS READ-ONLY MEMORY DEMONSTRATION

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT WORK IN VOLUME HOLOGRAPHY HAS LED TO THE DISCOVERY OF THE ORTHOGONAL DATA STORAGE TECHNIQUE. THIS METHOD OF HOLOGRAPHIC DATA RECORDING REDUCES THE CROSSTALK BETWEEN CHANNELS BY STORING MANY WAVELENGTH MULTIPLEXED IMAGES IN A PARTICULARLY EFFECTIVE USE OF K-SPACE. FURTHER REDUCTION IN CROSSTALK IS OBSERVED IN HOLOGRAMS STORED IN CERTAIN PHOTOREFRACTIVE CRYSTALS USING THE COUNTER-PROPAGATING ...

  7. Validation and security verification using a holographic phase mask correlator

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Accuwave Corporation will study the feasibility of a volume holographic, phase-encoded optical image correlator for credit card and document validation and security application. Fourier transform holograms of a phase-encoded input image are stored using wavelength multiplexed holographic gratings in a photorefractive crystal. High spatial resolution images can be sotred with low crosstalk using ...

  8. Compact, High Capacity Parallel Optical Memories

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposed SBIR program, Accuwave will investigate and demonstrate architectures for compact hologrpahic storage using materials and system innovations to reduce complexity and improve performance. Crosstalk, data formatting, input/output interfaces, and other relevant parameters will be characterized. Both wavelength and angle multiplexing, as well as its combination, will be used to prov ...

  9. ANGLE TRACKING AND SCATTERED JAMMING CANCELLATION IN ADAPTIVE DIGITAL ARRAY RADARS

    SBC: Adaptive Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADAPTIVE DIGITAL ARRAY PROCESSING IN AIRBORNE RADARS CAN PROVIDE A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT IN TARGET DETECTABILITY BY ADAPTIVELY SUPPRESSING CLUTTER AND JAMMING. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS SPACETIME ADAPTIVE PROCESSING HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED BY DETAILED SIMULATION AT ASI. RECENTLY, ARRAY RADAR FLIGHT TEST DATA WAS USED TO VERIFY THE PERFORMANCE OF ADAPTIVE RADAR. THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL EXTEND THE SIMULAT ...

  10. Video Retrieval Based on Language and Image Analysis

    SBC: Advance, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop practical video libraries allowing users to quickly find useful material. Commercial, home, or surveillance video programming captures information in multiple tracks: picture, sound, and closed captioning. Using multiple modalities cataloging information, visual information, and audio information is critical since no one track contains necessary information to identify clip ...
