  1. Sensor Fusion through Advanced Computing Techniques

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    AbTech Corporation proposes to apply its unique abductive information modeling (AIMTM) technology to develop a sensor fusion demonstration for command, control, communication, computer and information systems. Phase I is the necessary and sufficient precursor to an operational disparate sensor fusion for C4I applications. Phase I will show the feasibility of using AIM to model sensor data, threats ...

  3. Experimental and Analytical Evaluation of Solid Fueled Gas Generator Effluents Suitable for High Mach Combined Cycle PDE Applications

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The topic presented in this proposal has direct application to the development and demonstration of high Mach combined cycle engines. The proposed effort would allow the coupling of a pulse detonation engine (PDE) with a realistic solid fueled gas generator. The specific key technical problems identified in this proposal are the absence of experimental gas generator effluent detonability informat ...

  4. An Innovative Pulse Detonation Rocket Engine

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The opportunity addressed in this proposal is an innovative pulse detonation rocket engine (PDRE) which could significantly out-perform current state-of-the-art chemical rocket propulsion systems. The innovation is based in a novel combustion concept developed by Adroit Systems, Inc. (ASI) in the area of airbreathing pulse detonation propulsion. The concept relies on detonation combustion, as op ...

  5. Adv Tech for Minimization of Deflagration to Detonation Transition Distance in PDE Applications

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Adroit Systems Inc. (ASI) proposes to develop an innovative concept which reduces the required volume of predetonator mixture in pulse detonation engines (PDEs). The propulsive efficiency of the PDE hinges on the ability to quickly initiate a detonation in a fuel/air mixture. Since most fuel/air mixtures are difficult to detonate, an easily detonable predetonator mixture is typically ...

  6. A Novel Non-Lethal Effects Device

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The topic presented in this proposal has direct application to the development of non-lethal devices capable of temporarily incapacitating personnel, controlling crowds, immobilizing small vehicles, and other applications where a controlled amount of acoustic c energy needs to be delivered a a distance. The proposed effort would determine the characteristic acoustic waveforms and amplitudes gener ...

  7. Video Retrieval Based on Language and Image Analysis

    SBC: Advance, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop practical video libraries allowing users to quickly find useful material. Commercial, home, or surveillance video programming captures information in multiple tracks: picture, sound, and closed captioning. Using multiple modalities cataloging information, visual information, and audio information is critical since no one track contains necessary information to identify clip ...

  8. Electromagnetic Coupling to Satellite Cavities

    SBC: ADVANCED ELECTROMAGNETICS            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research combines an innovative eigenvector method with other electromagnetic techniques to produce a hybrid approach towards solving the EM coupling to satellite cavity problem. The physical structure is divided into an exterior region and one or more interior regions. The exterior region is modeled with method of moments (MOM) and or hybrids of MOM with the uniform theory of diffr ...

  9. An Efficient, Unstructured Flow Solver for Complex Aircraft Configurations in Maneuvering Flight

    SBC: AEROSOFT INC            Topic: N/A

    AeroSoft proposes the development of efficient and accurate Computational Fluid Dynamics methods for calculating the airflow characteristics over complex bodies with time-dependent, Reynolds-Averaged, Navier-Stokes equations which have been augmented to allow for dynamic meshes as well as non-equilibrium chemistry and thermodynamics. The dynamic-mesh approach proposed here is based on ...

  10. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...
