  1. A Low-Cost Hybrid Ultrasonic-Radio Frequency (RF) Sensor System for Characterization of Composite Materials

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), is developing a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-radio frequency (RF) sensor (HURFS) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system to assess most structural issues while simultaneously providing feedback on the layer thickness and RF properties of composite, non-conductive materials in multi-layer stacks. The HURFS approach combines the u ...

  3. A Novel Orthogonal Chaos-Based Radar Waveform with Optimized Receiver Filtering

    SBC: POC TECH GROUP LLC            Topic: MDA12002

    To achieve the goal of finding radar signal waveforms for supporting target information and deducing sensor-independent attributes, we propose to use a novel chaos-based orthogonal radar signal waveform with matched-filter-like (or adaptive) pulse compression processing for improving target detection. An open-source-and open-architecture prototype platform is proposed to enable performance analys ...

  9. Counterfeit Semiconductor Detection using Electromagnetic Emission Anomaly Analysis

    SBC: GMATEK            Topic: MDA12026

    This project involves research and development of an instrument capable of rapidly distinguishing between counterfeit and authentic semiconductor components. A side benefit is that it can also identify failed semiconductors. Non-contact measurement techniques are used to acquire electromagnetic field emissions generated by all electronic components that are powered-up and stimulated. Counterfeit s ...

  10. Human Performance Modeling Mark-up Language (HMP-ML)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA12T006

    The modeling and simulation of human performance is often difficult because there is no uniform framework for expressing the content and structure of a human performance model and all but impossible to compare and contrast across different models despite the abundance of quantitative modeling tools. The inability to communicate model structure and content is not just a practical shortcoming; it is ...
