  2. Staff Training in Information Management for Force XXI

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Recent cognitive research indicates that military teams operate effectively in high-stress, information-rich environments when they 1) share mental models of the battlefield situation and the team; 2) critique their situation model to develop clear goals for information retrieval; 3) effectively communicate information needs to others; and 4) anticipate and counteract information overload. We pro ...

  3. Interactions of Training and Decision Support: Measuring the Benefits in Trust, Situation Awareness, and Workload

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Inappropriate trust of automation can lead to suboptimal performance, in which the respective capabilities of humans and computers are not effectively exploited. In some cases, over- or under-reliance can lead to catastrophe. The primary objectives of the proposed Phase I work are (1) to develop a systematic general framework for training users of decision aids, with particular attention to the ...

  4. Methods for Pre-Flight Risk Assessment in Army Aviation

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    Decision Science Associates, Inc. (DSA) proposes to design and prototype an automated decision aid for the assessment of pre-flight risk by Army rotorcraft pilots. This aid will support the rapid assessment of risk based on readily available information. Phase I consists of 4 tasks. In Task 1 we will identify sources of information and determine the critical predictive factors and the types of dat ...

  5. Design and Synthesis of Novel Nanolaminate Materials of the B-C-N-Ti System

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Novel nanolaminate materials produced and modeled at BlRL/Northwestern University have remarkable and technologically attractive properties achieving superhardnesses significantly above that of either component alone. This suggests that the materials combination of a refractory metal such as titanium, with boron-carbon-nitrogen hierarchical structures, provide new approaches for rational design o ...

  6. The Development of a Polymer/Ceramic Hierarchical Design Nanocomposite

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Composites consisting of a polymer matrix bonded ceramic filler have significant potential in strength, hardness, elastic modulus, wear resistance and chemical resistance which has not been realized in state-of-the-art systems. Nature provides many examples of organic (polymer)/inorganic nanocomposites in shells, bones, teeth and horn which incorporate hierarchical design and exhibit high strengt ...

  7. A High Density Liquid Hydride Based Hydrogen Storage System

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A liquid chemical hydride-based hydrogen storage system is proposed for high density hydrogen supply for fuel cell power generation applications. Research works performed at MER showed that certain liquid hydrides can be catalytically dehydrogenated at temperatures as low as 150¿C. The released hydrogen gas can be withdrawn from the system through a hydrogen permeable membrane to achieve comple ...

  8. Development and Validation of an Exogenous Metabolic Activation System for FETAX

    SBC: STOVER & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay: Xenopus (FETAX) is a 96-h, whole-embryo bioassay designed to detect potential developmental toxicants. The primary goal of this research is to improve the predictability and increase the overall utility of FETAX as a screen for developmental toxicants that pose a hazard to human health. Since Xenopus laevis embryos lack mixed-fliriction oxidase metabolism (cytoch ...

  9. Low Frequency (LF), Ultra Wideband (UWB), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Antennas Compatible with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) offer a lower risk and lower cost platform for the use of an Ultra Wide Band (UWE) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) system for the detection of ground targets concealed by foliage. Given the size, weight, and power restrictions of a UAV, an impulse radar is an attractive radar system alternative because it offers a lighter and lower cost solution than a traditional c ...

  10. Detection of natural, variable objects

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    Detection of natural, variable objects requires general features that can be extracted from any image. Human vision is capable of segmenting images and recognizing objects in radiographs despite the summation of all objects in the inspection volume in the image plane. Thus, the features important in human perception provide a guide for automatic image processing. The initial features selected f ...
