  1. Low-Cost Chaos Radar

    SBC: TECHFLOW SCIENTIFIC            Topic: A11aT001

    To address the Army"s requirement for Low-Cost Chaos-based Radar solution, TechFlow Scientific and the University of New Mexico will design, develop, and test a prototype chaos based radar employing a coherent receiver with a matched filter. In Phase-I, we will perform a careful design study of the chaos-radar system components. We will develop robust technical solutions such as the use of Titaniu ...

  2. Fast Self-Adaptive Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: MDA10T003

    To reduce the cost of new hardware development, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is developing fast new computational tools that enable in-the-loop hardware testing. The MDA and contractors have developed high-fidelity scene modeling tools such as the Fast Line-of-sight Imagery for Target and Exhaust-plume Signatures (FLITES) to test optical signature trackers. Currently, these high-speed tools ar ...

  4. Nonintrusive Diagnostics for Off-Body Measurements in Flight Experiments

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT07

    ABSTRACT: Developing the quick strike capability of the Air Force requires hypersonic testing using advanced instrumentation to determine key aerodynamic parameters. A novel method for stand-off measurement of gas velocity is proposed. The method should operate over a wide dynamic range, from still air to hypersonic velocities. The method is non-contacting, precise, and spatially-resolved. It doe ...

  5. VLSI CMOS-memristor Building-block for Future Autonomous Air Platforms

    SBC: NUGENT, MICHAEL ALEXANDER            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: We propose a revolutionary method for constructing autonomous self-organizing circuits via memristive and CMOS technologies for use in autonomous flying vehicles. Our method utilizes a simple but powerful plasticity rule that can be mapped to the physics of memristive devices acting as synaptic elements whiten neuromorphic circuits. Through self-configuration of router and logic struc ...

  6. Synthetic Scenery for Tracking System Evaluation

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF10BT33

    ABSTRACT: Recent Airborne Tactical Laser (ATL) field testing demonstrated that high-energy laser (HEL)-induced obscurants could break the tracking systems lock on the aimpoint, negating the HEL attack. When an HEL engages a target surface, particles may be emitted from the surface that obscure the target, change the optical signature, and attenuate the beam on target due to scatter and absorptio ...

  7. Synthetic Scenery for Tracking System Evaluation

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF10BT33

    ABSTRACT: MZA Associates Corporation, partnered with the University of Dayton (UD) propose to develop a dynamic scene generation capability within WaveTrain. We propose authoring a scene renderer using proven Computer Graphics Imagery (CGI) techniques to produce target maps that WaveTrain will use to represent an array of sources. The code library will be compiled in such a way that is will be ...
