  3. Real Time 3-D Modeling and Immersive Visualization for Enhanced Soldier Situation Awareness

    SBC: Carnegie Robotics LLC            Topic: A12aT003

    We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban canyons, and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that wirelessly supply compressed 3D range data and color imagery to a central Fusion Node. The Fusion Node runs 3D recon ...

  4. Environmental Control Unit with Integrated Thermal Storage

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD13EP1

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes the development of an Environmental Control Unit (ECU) that uses an integrated Phase Change Material (PCM) to provide thermal energy storage. The PCM is contained within the system. During the thermal energy regeneration or collection stages of operation, the coolant is pumped through the PCM to remove or deposit thermal energy, respectively. I ...

  5. Advanced Programming and Teaching Interfaces for Autonomous System Control

    SBC: RobotWits, LLC            Topic: OSD13HS1

    Achieving robust autonomy by demonstration is challenging for several reasons. First, it is important to be able to provide demonstrations in a way that they capture the key aspects of robot interaction with environment. Second, the interface for providing demonstrations needs to be friendly enough for a non-technical user such as a Soldier. Third, it is critical to be able to verify the safety of ...

  6. BLAST: A System for Bandwidth- and Latency-Scalable Teleoperation

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: OSD13HS3

    Most current teleoperated ground vehicle systems require a high-bandwidth link to support either real-time streaming video or streamed 3D structure back to the operator control unit, and experience significant performance degradation in the presence of communication latencies as small as 100 milliseconds. These latency and bandwidth requirements severely hamper use of teleop systems in situations ...

  8. Air Combat Identification (ACID) Module

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: A08198

    In this Phase II SBIR project, Daniel H. Wagner Associates will develop a full-scale prototype Air Combat Identification (ACID) Module that will improve the accuracy of Track Management or Data Fusion systems when attempting to estimate the identity or classification of an Air target. The underlying technical mechanism by which the ACID module will estimate the targets identity is a Bayesian Netw ...

  9. Surface Engineering Technologies for Improved Gear Efficiency

    SBC: Wedeven Associates, Inc.            Topic: A12022

    The frictional losses in a gear mesh can be reduced by including super-finishing in the final manufacturing process. Phase I simulation tests of a hypoid rear axle gear shows a reduction in traction coefficient of 50 percent from an"as ground"surface to a high quality super-finished surface. This level of friction reduction is consistent for both low and high speeds. Phase I shows that costly s ...
