  1. A Configurable Object-Oriented Expert System to Embody Cultural (Awareness) Models for Simulation and Semi-Autonomous Forces

    SBC: AURORA SIMULATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    One of the biggest problems faced by both military and non-military personnel in planning and conducting Operations Other Than War (OOTW) and Law Enforcement (LE) is a lack of cultural awareness. A lack of cultural awareness in OOTW causes misplanning and misinterpretation in the areas of economics, politics, religion, and historical events. The objective of the proposed work is to produce a des ...

  2. A HELICAL BACKSCATTER MODEL FOR THE EXTRACTION OF POWER LINES FROM POLARIMETRIC SAR IMAGER

    SBC: Ressler Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE TWO MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE PHASE I RESEARCH EFFORT. THE FIRST AND OVERALL GOAL IS TO DESIGN A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP AND TEST A SYSTEM WHICH WILL PROVIDE RELIABLE, EFFECTIVE, AND AUTOMATED REMOTE MAPPING OF POWER LINES FOR TACTICAL MISSION PLANNING. THE SECOND GOAL IS TO FACILITATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF AIRBORNE SYSTEMS FOR AIRPLANES AND HELICOPTERS TO ALLOW REAL-TIME IDENTIFICATION OF POWER LI ...

  3. A Novel Approach to Model Based Validation of Fault Tolerant Systems

    SBC: Unisoft Consulting Inc            Topic: N/A

    This work offers an innovative approach to predicting system behavior (in terms of reliability and performance) based primarily on the structural characteristics of a formal functional specification. The mechanism for process composition is codified in the CSP-to-Stochastic Petri net (CSPN) toll. CSPN supports systematic specification, automatic translation and subsequent augmentation (e.g., fai ...

  4. A Novel Three-Dimensional Visual System

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The world around us is three dimensional (3D), yet most existing cameras and display systems handle only two dimensional (2D) flat images that lack the depth information. This fundamental restriction greatly limits the capability of human being in perceiving and understanding the complexity of real world objects. The primary objectives of this proposed Phase I SBIR work are two- folds: (1) to st ...

  5. A Portable, Ultrasensitive Biological Agent Sensor

    SBC: BIOTRACES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The research proposed herein is designed to validate the critical technologies required to implement a miniaturized, portable biological agent sensor with 1,000-fold higher sensitivity than prior art devices. This sensor is based on the proprietary Multi Photon Detection (MPD) technology developed by BioTraces, Inc. When used with the Super IRMA assay developed by BioTraces, MPD has enabled the ...

  6. Adaptive Network Security Management

    SBC: INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project is dedicated to the development of an adaptive network security management tool that is analogous to implementing and incident/response paring mechanism on top of a universal remote control facility for a variety of network and security tools, network types and operating systems. Our proposed approach to accomplishing this is to integrate and agent architecture with a Case-Based Reas ...

  7. Adaptive Network Security Management

    SBC: MOUNTAIN WAVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Mountain Wave, Inc. proposes to investigate the development of an automated network security management product that would allow personnel within an Information Technology (IT) organization to combine information from heterogeneous sources into an integrated application that captures business processes and automates tasks to "prevent" potential security violations. This product will: be "extensib ...

  8. Advanced Composites and Alternate Power Sources, Respectively

    SBC: Pressure Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Compressed Natural Gas is the leading alternative automative fuel candidate. However, current cylinders used for on-board CNG storage are expensive, overweight, and have limited capacity. The Flex Tube program develops technology that significantly reduces CNG fuel storage system cost, weight, complexity, and installation efforts. Unlike conventional cylinders, Flex Tube is a composite-overbraided ...

  9. Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Waveforms

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: N/A

    SAR systems covering large swath widths suffer from range ambiguities when using high duty cycle radar signals having standard SAR waveforms. Range ambiguities can be eliminated by transmitting nonstandard orthogonal waveforms. Analysis and simulations will be carried out to determine the performance of different orthogonal waveforms in terms of minimizing SAR image sidelobe levels and limiting ...

  10. Advanced VCSELs Implemented from Thermal Oxidation Isolation

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    GaAs-based VCSEL's with thermally oxidized AlxGa(1-x)As current apertures have recently been demonstrated that possess record performance benchmarks in terms of low current thresholds and high power conversion efficiency. Work done at ASU and elsewhere has begun to demonstrate the enormous potential of AlxGa(1-x)As-oxide layers in a variety of additional device-related applications. We have demo ...
