  1. Compact Piezoelectric Based Power Generation

    SBC: Active Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Devices proposes an innovation for energy harvesting using piezoelectric based approaches to extract energy from mechanical vibrations. This innovation consists of a piezoelectric element for energy transduction, rectifier circuits for extraction, and storage devices to store power for use by other devices. Ideal models predict that a 1" x1" x.010" piezoelectric wafer undergoing moderate ...

  2. Nanoelectric Modeling Software Development

    SBC: Advanced Device Technologies,            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project has two primary objectives. The first objective is to develop an engineering model of Resonant Tunneling Devices (RTD) to be implemented in AIM-Spice, a commercial software package running under Windows 95/NT. The development of a reliable device model is a prerequisite for the design and production of any semiconductor device technology. The RTD model will be a semi-empiri ...

  3. A Miniature Internal Combustion Engine for Micro Air Vehicle Propulsion and Power

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

    Micro Aerial Vehicle (¿AVs) will open up a wide range of new missions for the US Armed Forces, but also present a new set of technical challenges. The power and propulsion system will have a significant impact on the ultimate capabilities and range of missions of ¿AVs. While advanced battery technology can provide good propulsion performance for ¿AVs, miniature internal combustion engines can ...

  4. An Advanced Technology Chemical and Biological Agent Standoff Detection System

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

    Standoff detection of chemical and biological agent clouds is extremely important for the protection of US armed forces. We propose a system that will successfully perform stand off detection of both chemical and biological agents using a unique combination of advanced technologies. An imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) will perform the remote detection of chemical agents from an Unman ...

  5. Unsupervised Pattern Analysis of Vehicle Tracks

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this effort ALPHATECH will develop algorithms for extraction of purposeful temporal-spatial patterns from moving vehicle data and demonstrate their efficiency on a set of simulated MPA scenarios. We apply unsupervised learning algorithms to find similarities between traffic activities. Traffic activities are constructed using ALPHATECH's multiple hypothesis tracking algorithm and grouping cor ...

  6. Continous All-Source Region Monitoring

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this effort we will design and demonstrate the benefits of an integrated fusion system (IFS) for continuous monitoring of targets. The proposed IFS architecture will ensure that all available sensor data is used to generate a consistent picture of target tracks and activities, and it will enable processing of data from each sensor to be cued based on all available information. We will specify ...

  7. Hyperspectral and Synthetic Aperture Radar Fusion for Concealed Target Detection

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Achieving global awareness by automatically exploiting sensor data will provide tremendous advantage to the warfighter. However, camouflage, concealment, and deception (CC&D) can be effective countermeasures against surveillance systems. The most promising strategies for defeating CC&D exploit multiple sensor modalities, such as foliage penetration (FOPEN) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and hype ...

  8. Bayes' Nets for the Dynamic Database

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    recent advances in sensor technology have enabled collection of vast quantities of battlefield information. Warfighters will soon gain global access to this huge volume of information. Rather than construct separate redundant, and inconsistent situation estimates, a Dynamic Database can reduce the data to a comprehensive, self-consistent representation of the environment. This proposal explores ...

  9. Rapid Model Development

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This research develops innovative techniques for updating 3D representations of targets used for SAR ATR, e.g., of the type being employed on DARPA's MSTAR program, directly from data. The work will provide a critical bridge between models and data, allowing image exemplars of modified targets to be of immediate use in updating target representations. The proposed work would also extend naturall ...

  10. Automated Intrusion Detection for GCCS Les

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

    Arca Systems proposes to initiate the design and development of an intrusion detection system for the GCCS LES (and similar environments). Many current intrusion detection tools are Unix-based, focused on a single host or on a generally homogeneous distributed environment. The notional GCCS LES environment makes extensive use of distributed architecture, using support from the COTS technologies ...
