  1. Instantaneous Self-Sealing Protection for Fuel Tanks

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N12AT001

    Aircraft are susceptible to ballistic and other projectile damage. They are particularly vulnerable to damage to their fuel tanks. As a result, most jet fighters and all U.S. military rotary wing aircraft employ some type of seal-sealing fuel tank technology. Unfortunately, the existing self-sealing fuel tank technologies are heavy and offer unreliable reproducibility in the self-sealing layer res ...

  2. Integral Fuel Tank Self-sealing Protection


    The proposed research and development effort describes a composite material approach capable of providing reliable self-sealing functionality to integral fuel tanks. Since fuel containment systems can make up a large portion of an aircraft"s presented area they can contribute significantly to aircraft vulnerability to impacting threats. The ability to self-seal addresses the issue of potential fue ...

  3. Exploiting Polarimetry in Littoral Surveillance

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: N12AT002

    In Phase I the team of TSC and SDL will initiate an effort to collect polarimetric target and clutter signatures, identify polarimetric features and algorithms for detecting and classifying targets, and understanding the sensitivity to target aspect angle, grazing angle and radar resolution. In performing the Phase I program, the team will: 1) identify a robust set of polarimetric decomposition an ...

  4. Early Damage State Detection in Gearbox Components Via Acoustic Emission

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N12AT007

    To meet the US Navy"s need for an innovative AE technology for extracting the true AE signal out of background noises, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) and The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) propose an innovative wireless AE technology for automated detection of early stages of crack initiation and short crack propagation in rotating gearbox components. The proposed approach builds on the XII-develo ...

  5. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: FirstPass Engineering PC            Topic: N12AT013

    In common terminology, chaos refers to a state of randomness or unpredictability. Chaos has a different meaning in physics and mathematics. In physics, chaos is a structured but irregularly patterned behavior displaying an extraordinary sensitivity to initial conditions. Work done by the principals of the proposal has proven that logic elements can be built with chaotic elements and can replicate ...

  6. Energy Efficient HF Transmit Antennas

    SBC: Pharad, LLC            Topic: N12AT015

    In this N12A-T015 Phase I effort, the team of Pharad and UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) propose to develop a highly efficient High Frequency (HF) transmit antenna based on utilizing existing structures that are available in the surrounding environment, as radiation mechanisms. We propose to create antennas on existing structures or other parts of the platform using either of two stra ...

  7. Intermediate Transient Support of High Rate and Pulsed Loads

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N12AT022

    RCT Systems proposes to develop a conceptual design for an Intermediate Energy Storage Module (IESM) that will provide the energy storage, power electronics and controls necessary to keep high power pulse loads from disrupting the ship"s distribution grid and allow the power system to meet the specifications in MIL-STD-1399. In its system tradeoff and analysis, RCT Systems will also consider a nov ...

  8. Advancing the Capabilities and Deployment of Functional Encryption

    SBC: Zeutro, LLC            Topic: N12AT025

    In recent years, a new opportunity for protecting encrypted data has risen. Functional Encryption (FE) provides an entirely new vision of encrypting data. Instead of encrypting to individual users, in a functional encryption system, one can use FE to describe a policy of how to share data based on a user's credentials or attributes. While recent research has significantly advanced the capabi ...

  9. Information Salience

    SBC: Adaptive Cognitive Systems            Topic: OSD11TD1

    A subtle and often unrecognized assumption lies behind the use of the terms salience and perception when they appear in the context of human information processing. Although it has become commonplace to blend the language of low-level physiological process with the language of high-level cognition, there is a substantive theoretical step to be taken before we can claim that, for instance, the abi ...

  10. An Adaptive, Biologically-Inspired Framework for Identifying Salience in Data

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: OSD11TD1

    In the modern world, people and machines are faced with ever-increasing amounts of data. Oftentimes, large data sets can be greatly reduced by identifying elements that are salient, within the context of a particular mission or goal. For example, in a military patrol video, hours of empty scenery may be removed to reveal short snippets where people or vehicles appear, and engage in behaviors tha ...
