  1. Economical and Reliable Adaptive Disturbance Cancellation for Lightly Damped Systems

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Efforts to apply active noise and vibration control commercially, while intensifying, continue to be hampered by the cost of the computers required to implement the active algorithms. Currently, the cost of wide-band control is prohibitive for lightly damped systems such as precision structures or highly reverberant acoustic spaces, even if the system has just one canceling actuator and one error ...

  2. Data Management for Imaging Spectrometers

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

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...

  3. Low Cost Deposition of YBCO Films for Advanced HTS Conductor Applications

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This program develops and demonstrates an innovative, low cost, solution and non-vacuum based process for deposition of YBCO on continuous, textured metal tape substrates. It is easily scaleable for long lengths of continuous conductors, and is an inherently more cost effective as it is scaled.Recent advances in the deposition of thick YBCO films have demonstrated that fabricating practical, long ...

  4. Diamond based, field emission cathode for small electrostatic thrusters

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Low power electrostatic thrusters are greatly penalized by the lack of small efficient cathodes. Conventional hollow cathodes are relatively large and consume power and propellant at a rate approaching that required by the small thruster, thus greatly reducing the overall efficiency and Isp. An attractive alternative to the hollow cathodes (which are thermionic emitters) are field emission array ...

  5. Risk Based Remediation Modeling

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE ENVIRONMENTAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I proposal is to develop methods to couple a numerical three-dimensional groundwater contaminant fate and transport model with Monte Carlo probabilistic risk assessment methods in order to allow selection of remedial criteria based on reasonable estimates of risk to humans and the environment. The market will be searched for the most effective and available three-dimensional numerical ...

  6. Intelligent Fusion and Asset Management Processor

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The management and dissemination of Inboard and offboard information and the associated situation assessment of the tactical picture and determination of the associated response is a major task for Air Force personnel. Significant effort has been made in countering this challenge with advances in sensor capabilities. enhancements in onboard avionics, and combined intra and inter service command, c ...

  7. Air Combat Tactics Optimization Using Genetic Algorithms (ACTOGA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to investigate the feasibility of using stochastic genetic algorithms (GAs) for the development and optimization of air combat tactics for large MvN engagements. Stochastic GAs, which encode each optimizing parameter as a Gaussian region rather than a fixed value, offer several benefits over conventional GAs when the problem under study contains a large number of parameters, as is the ...

  10. Flight Control Technology

    SBC: DIGITAL SYSTEM RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force has identified the need to develop affordable flight control technology to support Air Force Global Engagement objectives. Of particular interest to the Air Force is the development of real-time optimization algorithms for cooperative engagement solutions among Uninhabited Air Vehicles (UAV) in a multiple target environment. DSR proposes developing a real-time, rule based, Cooperat ...
