  1. Software reusability

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A major problem in reusability is the creation of components that can be reused in applications other than the application for which they were originally designed. Software reusability has long held out the unrealized promise of increased productivity. It is accepted that within product development, reusing of software components will greatly reduce time and thus save money. It is our belief that ...

  2. Rapid Target Modeling Through GET Inheritance Mechanism

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop a Genetic Evolution Target (GET) modeling methodology for rapid target model development and validation from limited initial sensory and technical data. Developed methodology will allow for an expansion of the initial signature database and extensive testing of ATR systems over a variety of realistic signatures and situations not seen so far. The metho ...

  3. Wrist Sensor for Warfighter Status Monitor

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A small, personnel, battlefield, fiber optic sensor for detection of heartbeat and respiration rates will be developed. This biosensor offers high sensitivity, simplicity of design, and low costs. The contractor will show the feasibility of a personnel biosensor which has the potential to signal fatigue, dehydration, stress, illness, injury, or sleep disorders which are detectable through low fr ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Miniature Environmental Air Sampler Using Aerogel for Biological Material Collection and Fluid Reduction

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors exist to detect biological warfare agents and to provide an early warning so that precautionary and countermeasures can be implemented if necessary. Current assay technology is capable of detecting quantities of bacteria, viruses, and toxin molecules to levels as low as 10-12g. Introduction of the collected material into some assay devices requires sample reduction to liquid phase. An a ...

  6. Integrating Web Space into the Work Environment

    SBC: Triconix Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The problem of assimilating data in cyberspace continues to grow with the explosive growth of the Web. The Web has quickly evolved into a world-wide informational database which can, at best, be described as chaotic. Finding specific information has become increasingly difficult. Furthermore, as the Web becomes more visual and dynamic, much of the information is "hidden" from the tools currentl ...

  7. RELOCATABLE TARGET DETECTION AND TARGETING TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEMS LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CAPABILITY TO DETECT AND IDENTIFY STRATEGIC RELOCATABLE TARGETS (SRT) IS VITAL TO AN EFFECTIVE STRATEGIC COUNTER FORCE. THE CHALLENGING PROBLEM OF DOING SO IS EXACERBATED BY NATURAL CAMOUFLAGE USING FOLIAGE AND FORESTS WHERE CONVENTIONAL RADAR AND IMAGING TECHNIQUES EXPERIENCE SEVERE PROPAGATION-LOSSES AND CLUTTER CONFUSION. TO OVERCOME THIS DIFFICULT PROBLEM ISL PROPOSES THE USE OF LONGER WAV ...

  8. FUSION OF INFORMATION FROM SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR (SAR) THERMAL IMAGERY MULTISPECTRAL AND TOPOGRAPHIC DATA TO DETECT GROUND...

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE THE UTILITY OF MULTISENSOR IMAGERY PRODUCTS TO SATISFY REQUIREMENTS FOR DETECTION AND MONITORING OF UNDERGROUND EXPLOSIONS, SUCH AS THOSE PRODUCED AT NUCLEAR TEST SITES. THE RESEARCH WILL INVOLVE AN ANALYSIS OF EXISTING RADAR, THERMAL, MULTISPECTRAL, AND TOPOGRAPHIC PRODUCTS OBTAINED OVER A U.S. TEST SITE. HARDCOPY AND SOFTCOPY ANALYSES WILL YIELD INFORMATION A ...

  9. FEASIBILITY OF ROUGH TERRAIN/WILD WEATHER BASING OF SLAVED TANDEM FREEWING (STF) UAVS

    SBC: Daedalus Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SLAVED TANDEM FREEWING (STF) AIRCRAFT IS A NOVEL, TANDEM WING, V/STOL AIR VEHICLE CONFIGURATION WITH UNIQUE POTENTIAL FOR SELFLAUNCHING AND SELF-RECOVERY FROM BASES WITHOUT FLAT AND EVEN PLATFORMS (ROUGH TERRAIN) DURING PERIODS WHEN WIND VECTORS ARE GUSTY, LARGE AND ALIGNED IN THE MOST ADVERSE DIRECTION (WILD WEATHER). THIS STUDY WILL EVALUATE THE POTENTIAL OF STF AIRFRAMES TO SATISFY THIS ROUGH ...

  10. DARE: A DOMAIN ANALYSIS AND REUSE ENVIRONMENT

    SBC: Reuse, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DOMAIN ANALYSIS (DA) HOLDS THE KEY FOR A SYSTEMATIC, FORMAL, AND EFFECTIVE PRACTICE OF SOFTWARE REUSE. PROPOSED APPROACHES AND METHODS FOR DA ASSUME THAT DOMAIN KNOWLEDGE EXISTS AND IS READILY USABLE. EXPERIENCE INDICATES, HOWEVER, THAT ACQUIRING AND STRUCTURING KNOWLEDGE IS THE BOTTLENECK OF DA. A RECENT METHODOLOGY DEVELOPED BY REUSE, INC. FOR THE STARS PROGRAM (REUSE LIBRARY PROCESS MODEL, RLPM ...
