  1. High Output Turboelectric Diesel (HOTeD)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB082010

    There is a current need for small heavy fuel engines that are light and reliable enough to be used in a variety of applications, such as UAV propulsion. The challenges for such an engine are in meeting the often stringent and competing requirements of high thermal efficiency and high power to weight ratio. Microturbines lack in thermal efficiency and small diesel engines lack in power to weight. ...

  2. Very High Altitude Propulsion System (HDAT)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB072045

    TBDThere is interest in unmanned aircraft that can be deployed to a target via unconventional means and operate at high altitudes for extended periods. A key technology required for such an aircraft is a propulsion system capable of providing the required thrust while meeting stringent requirements. Due to method for deployment, the propulsion system is required to meet several additional requi ...

  3. Platform Independent Omni-directional Antennas

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SB082037

    Increasingly, enemy forces employ technologies that either depend on RF communications or produce detectable RF signatures. Thus, there are many types of RF signals and signatures that can be detected over a variety of different frequency bands and environments by RF sensors. When received, this information can be exploited to confront or avoid potential threats. These sensors operate on differe ...

  4. Statistical Algorithms for Assessing the Efficacy of Community-Generated Educational Games

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SB072012

    The strength of the United States military is highly dependent upon the continued superiority of intellectual resources and technology in the battle arena. Emerging trends indicate that fewer students are pursuing education in the sciences and technology. In an effort to reverse this trend, researchers are working to engage students through interactive educational software. However, a recent U. ...

  5. Probabilistic Logic for Knowledge Representation and Automated Reasoning

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: ST081004

    Conventional statements of logic (e.g., simple statements of the form “if x then y”) allow individuals and machines to make quick and efficient determinations of the state of the world through the rules of deduction. This type of reasoning, however, does not naturally accommodate a fundamental and irreducible aspect of our knowledge about the world: we are more often than not uncertain about o ...

  6. Wide Area Video Motion Blur Elimination

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: ST081007

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of fusing image analysis with Global Position System (GPS) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) information to eliminate motion blur from hi-resolution wide area videos. The key innovations in the proposed effort are: 1) a novel non Linear Shift-Invariant (LSI) motion blur estimation algorithm ...

  7. Validating Large Scale Simulations of Socio-Political Phenomena

    SBC: EVIDENCE BASED RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: SB072013

    There is a growing recognition that simulations representing social and political phenomena are very useful to today’s military to support planning and execution of operations associated with irregular warfare. While many technical challenges are being addressed by DARPA, social science simulations still present an overarching problem: methods and capabilities to show that a simulation is work ...

  8. Robust Self-Forming Human Networks: Making Organizations Work

    SBC: FREYTAG & COMPANY, LLC            Topic: ST061004

    This proposed work researches, designs, and prototypes a lightweight knowledge management tool supporting legacy communication protocols to assist organizations to automatically restructure themselves to meet new challenges and tasks. This tool promotes vitual reorganizations that connect individuals with common interests and functions irrespective of the offical "organizational chart" by display ...

  9. Rapid and Accurate Idea Transfer

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: SB072032

    Using our 50+ person-years of experience with presentation briefing for Fortune 500 companies and DoD, XML processing, and HCI tool design, we aim to dramatically improve the effectiveness, analytic quality, and accuracy of conveying complex ideas, plans, quantitative analysis, and concepts through asynchronous or synchronous briefings. We make a major departure from the linear slide model of pre ...

  10. Micro-Actuated Optics for Wide Field-of-View (FOV) Imaging with Random-Access Optical Zoom Capability

    SBC: HOLOCHIP CORPORATION            Topic: SB072025

    Presently, scanning and zooming of imaging optics is achieved with bulky mechanical gimbals or using multiple focal plane arrays and associated optics to cover the wide field of view. These approaches are not only expensive in terms of power, size and weight, but also costly. Alternatively, the use of liquid crystal (LC) lenses, LC spatial light modulators and LC scanners in zooming and scanning ...
