  1. Proximity Inspection Sensor Array and Remote Radio Frequency Diagnostic Tool

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "A significant problem for stakeholders in large satellite systems is the difficulty of getting data about these systems when it counts the most - in orbit and during critical anomalous situations. Near-field diagnostic tools - including visual andinfrared images and close-range radio frequency measurements - are now becoming feasible to examine performance, anomalies, and failures on orbit.AeroA ...

  2. Reconfigurable Synthetic Jet Actuation for Closed-Loop Hingeless Flow Control

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "In this work, we propose to capitalize on our experience with synthetic jet actuation, low order system modeling, and control in order to develop an integrated approach to hingeless flow control. We first propose to develop a new, hybrid, synthetic jetactuator that will be capable, via real-time actuator parameter control, of both separation manipulation (reduction, elimination or promotion) and ...

  3. Navigation Solutions by Terrain Imaging

    SBC: ATHENA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Athena Technologies, Incorporated (Athena) and Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute (CMU) propose to exploit use of visual odometry capabilities via real-time computer vision, to augment inertial sensors, 3D magnetometer and GPS to determine thevelocity, position and attitude of a missile or unmanned air vehicle. The proposed architecture exploits the excellent performance Athena has dem ...

  4. Agent Based Correlation for Multi-INT Fusion

    SBC: ATTOTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of this Phase I proposal is evaluate battlespace geolocation correlation opportunities that may be obtained by fusing measurements from Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) collections. These opportunitiesinclude (1) improving geolocation accuracy at the processing level using individual sensor measurements from dissimilar collection systems and (2 ...

  5. Global Positioning System/Inertial Measurement Unit Ultra-Tightly Coupled Integrity Monitoring

    SBC: AVTEC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop a Global Positioning Satellite/Inertial Measurement Unit(GPS/IMU) integrity monitor using techniques that can be implemented in parallel. The first technique takes advantage of the GPS link modulation, namely spreadspectrum coding and bi-phase shift keying. A multiple step procedure will allow spectrum monitoring for downlink integrity, increased background noise, jamming a ...

  6. SOF Critical Care Medical Tools

    SBC: Bio-Track Llc            Topic: N/A

    "Current commercial market offers many products that may form the basis from which to proceed, these devices were not designed with the original intent to perform in the austere environment of combat by minimally trained personnel where evacuation andaccess to higher echelons of medical care are likely to be significantly delayed. The overarching challenge will be to design robust light-weight an ...

  7. Generative, Knowledge-based Approaches for Rapid

    SBC: Command Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Proposed here is an effort to develop a generative, knowledge-based instructional development and delivery system, Jenny, for simulation-based training. Courseware development with Jenny involves (a) populating a knowledge base representing the structureof subject-matter knowledge and (b) creating simulation-based and other instructional materials that are associated with the knowledge base. At d ...

  8. High Suction Specific Speed Inducers for Cryogenic Upper Stage Engines

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Pump inducer suction performance is directly linked to turbopump rotational speed and weight. It has become standard practice to use boost pumps to provide higher inlet pressure to main turbopumps. This allows for higher speed, lower weight, and moreefficient turbopumps. Propellant tank pressure is also minimized. However, the boost pumps add to the weight and complexity of the propellant ma ...

  9. Opportunistic Sensor Resource Management for Extended Operating Conditions


    "DSR will apply the application of proven artificial intelligence (AI) technology to the problem of controlling distributed Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) assets in extended operating conditions. DSR has demonstrated these AItechnologies to the Air Force Research Lab for their Unmanned Combat Vehicles (UCAV) and Miniature Air Launched Vehicles (MALV). In today's war fightin ...

  10. Rapid Laser Drilling and Inspection of Contoured Holes

    SBC: E. M. Optomechanical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Air Force's Airborne Laser System needs technology to rapidly produce high-quality 170-micron diameter contoured holes in quantities of millions. At a target rate of one hole per minute, a single production workstation running 24/7 would take 46 yearsto produce the number of holes required for a fully operational system consisting of seven aircraft. E. M. Optomechanical, Inc. is proposing a ...
