  1. Dynamic Data Mining for Information Exploitation

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sucessful completion of Phase I efforts shall provide the Air Force with an intelligent dynamic data mining architecture and demonstration prototype. We shall develop the concept of a profile that shall be used as a basis for identification and linking of relationships based on a rough sketch or profile of the situation. The use of profiles shall be used in enhancing existing case-based and asso ...

  2. Aerodynamic Drag Reduction


    Accurate Automation will design a weakly ionized gas drag reduction system for an advanced fixed wing aircraft. To this end we will develop a theoretical model for the WIG drag reduction phenomena, initiate a series of two dimensional shock tank experiments, evaluate the engineering feasibility of employing the technology on an operational aircraft, and perform a conceptual design for a wind tunn ...

  3. Conversion Process for Legacy Stable Based Printed Circuit Board Atrwork

    SBC: Aci Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    Master artwork for Air Force systems is traditionally delivered on polyester-based mylar film. This film tends to degrade over time, even when stored in climate-controlled facilities. In addition, drawings must be digitized before circuit boards can be manufactured, which is an expensive and time consuming step. A reliable and repeatable artwork conversion process is needed.This project will pe ...

  4. Electronically Shunted Smart Material Damper Packages for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an alternate approach to damping for extreme environments, which uses an electrically shunted, surface mounted, smart material. This shunting approach has been most widely used in less extreme environments in conjunction with piezoceramic materials. The smart material is bonded to the surface of the target structure, in this case a part inside an aircraft engine. Stress on the part ...

  5. Smart, Adaptive Packages for Vibration Suppression

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In many structures with vibration problems, the nature of the problem is uncertain, or varies over time. Thus it is not possible 'a priori to design a linear, time-invariant, (LTI) feedback control law which is guaranteed to meet performance, or possibly even stability requirements over the entire operating range. These applications require an intelligent control system which can adapt to the ch ...

  6. Advanced Diode Pumped Laser Packaging

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High power lasers are needed for many airborne applications. These lasers must be compact, reliable in high vibration environments, and must also have a low per unit cost. Aculight proposes to develop a high repetition rate laser with average power of 10-20 watts using novel packaging designs and manufacturing methods. When fully developed, this technology will provide flight-worthy lasers at a ...

  7. High Brightness, Multi-Wavelength Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Improving the optical beam brightness of diode laser bars and optically pumped semiconductors is essential for many Air Force and commercial applications. In this proposed work Aculight will build and test a MIT/LL optical approach for decreasing the angular divergence of diode laser bars by a factor of at least 80. The MIT/LL approach will be implemented using Aculight's newly developed optical ...

  8. Development of a Space-Time Adaptive Processing SBR Capable of Performing the Detection and Track Missions for Both Ground Moving Targets & Airborne..

    SBC: Adaptive Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Potential cost effective proprietary solutions to a number of outstanding problems involved in achieving an SBR capable of meeting military surveillance and reconnaissance requirement for the detection and track of both ground and airborne moving targets are proposed to be further developed and space-time adaptive processing SBR. Performance e ...

  9. Jam Resistant GPS Reception


    A unique approach is proposed for the effective rejection of cochannel, but otherwise arbitrary, jamming and other interference in GPS reception. The approach is based on a method of processing a multiplicity of signals sharing the same time-frequency and polarization space, in such a way as to favor a bona fide GPS signal over the others present (jamming, spoofing, multipath, atmospherics or oth ...

  10. Intelligent Tutor Development for Information Operations

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Adroit Systems Inc. (ASI), in association with Klein Associates Inc., proposes to develop an Intelligent Computer Aided Instruction (ICAI) training system for information operations personnel to maximize mission effectiveness and achieve Information Superiority. Training objectives will focus on Crew Resource Management (CRM) principles. Those principles necessitate a comprehensive system tailor ...
