  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Software reusability

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A major problem in reusability is the creation of components that can be reused in applications other than the application for which they were originally designed. Software reusability has long held out the unrealized promise of increased productivity. It is accepted that within product development, reusing of software components will greatly reduce time and thus save money. It is our belief that ...

  4. Rapid Target Modeling Through GET Inheritance Mechanism

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop a Genetic Evolution Target (GET) modeling methodology for rapid target model development and validation from limited initial sensory and technical data. Developed methodology will allow for an expansion of the initial signature database and extensive testing of ATR systems over a variety of realistic signatures and situations not seen so far. The metho ...

  5. Wrist Sensor for Warfighter Status Monitor

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A small, personnel, battlefield, fiber optic sensor for detection of heartbeat and respiration rates will be developed. This biosensor offers high sensitivity, simplicity of design, and low costs. The contractor will show the feasibility of a personnel biosensor which has the potential to signal fatigue, dehydration, stress, illness, injury, or sleep disorders which are detectable through low fr ...

  6. Miniature Environmental Air Sampler Using Aerogel for Biological Material Collection and Fluid Reduction

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors exist to detect biological warfare agents and to provide an early warning so that precautionary and countermeasures can be implemented if necessary. Current assay technology is capable of detecting quantities of bacteria, viruses, and toxin molecules to levels as low as 10-12g. Introduction of the collected material into some assay devices requires sample reduction to liquid phase. An a ...

  7. Integrating Web Space into the Work Environment

    SBC: Triconix Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The problem of assimilating data in cyberspace continues to grow with the explosive growth of the Web. The Web has quickly evolved into a world-wide informational database which can, at best, be described as chaotic. Finding specific information has become increasingly difficult. Furthermore, as the Web becomes more visual and dynamic, much of the information is "hidden" from the tools currentl ...

  8. Simulation Based Design for Large Complex COTS Based Systems

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The increasing complexity and sheet magniture of advanced Army C4I systems has exceeded the capacity of system design teams to efficiently design these complex systems using existing system design methodologies and tools. Advanced system engineering development methods and automation techniques are required to manage the complexity inherent in the design of large complex computer based systems an ...

  9. Simulation-Based Design for Large Complex COTS Based Systems

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    With the increasing use of COTS technology in large complex military and commercial systems come higher expectations for the system's capabilities and the time to completion. Given the wide range of available COTS technologies, an environment is needed that uses an innovative approach to requirements capture, systems engineering, and performance analysis. The Simulation-Based Design paradigm use ...

  10. Digital Intelligence Situation Mapboard for Enhanced Situation Awareness

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Current battlefield situation displays either lack resolution ir restrict the user's perception to a small segment of the battlefield. Additionally, the plotting of data on these displays is extremely manpower-intensive, consuming valuable personnel resources that could be applied to situation analysis and other important tasks. Trident proposes to design and produce an innovative situation awar ...
