  2. Contextual Anomaly Management Interface (CAMI) for Autonomous Systems

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING GROUP            Topic: OSD12AU1

    To deal with the increasingly complex, dynamic and unpredictable operational environments of the 21st century, unmanned and autonomous system, sensor, and vehicle technologies are being expanded and improved. For example, unmanned air, ground, and maritime systems provide an expanding set of capabilities, such as intelligence, detection, security, targeting, and strike, while reducing the risk to ...

  4. Human/Autonomous-System Interaction and Collaboration

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING GROUP            Topic: OSD13HS5

    Human-autonomous system interaction is frequently limited by lack of confidence and trust among the (combined) team. In order to have humans collaborate effectively with autonomous systems, improved interfaces and interaction techniques, and frameworks of interaction must be developed that allow for a common perception of the goals, constraints, resources, and other variables relevant to the team ...

  5. Compact, High Capacity Parallel Optical Memories

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposed SBIR program, Accuwave will investigate and demonstrate architectures for compact hologrpahic storage using materials and system innovations to reduce complexity and improve performance. Crosstalk, data formatting, input/output interfaces, and other relevant parameters will be characterized. Both wavelength and angle multiplexing, as well as its combination, will be used to prov ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Ultra-Textured Active polymer (UTAP) Composite for High-Performance Intelligent Acoustic Transducers

    SBC: Ceramare Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project seeks to combine the enhanced piezoelectric properties of single crystal perovskite ferroelectrics, recently discovered at Pennsylvania State University, with the electrostrictive properties of polyurethane to make a new class of "smart" materials for acoustic transducers. A tape casting process is used to form composite sheets compromising ...

  9. Liquid Crystal-Based Underwater Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor proposes a new approach to underwater imaging that directly converts a two-dimmensional acoustic pressure wave into an electronic requirements fo convential piezo-element arrays. The imager relies on the piezo-birefringent properties of a nematic liquid crystal panel that serves as both sensor and display. The capability of nematic liquid crystals has been established and publishe ...
