  2. Carbon Monoxide Detector For Aviation Oxygen Systems

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) selectively filters compressed air from the aircraft's engine to remove nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. During shipboard operations, Navy aircraft are particularly vulnerable to excessive levels of toxic byproducts from ingesting the jet exhaust from other aircraft. Under s ...

  3. Online Interactive Generative Multiscale Manifold Learning

    SBC: Plain Sight Systems Inc            Topic: N122138

    One of the main obstacles to the useful exploitation of dimensionality reduction, both linear and nonlinear, is the lack of effective synthesis methods to generate examples in the original exploitation space, as opposed to the low dimensional parameter space. The ability to interactively navigate in the appropriate relevant low dimensional representation, and simultaneously observe the related"ori ...

  4. Cost-Effective Technologies for Fabrication of PiezoCrystal Vector Velocity Sensors

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N122139

    Applied Physical Sciences (APS) has developed a plan to improve the design and development of submarine towed array vector sensors that employ single crystal accelerometers so that they meet Navy specifications, but do so at significantly lower cost relative to earlier variants. Tasks in the Phase I study include developing a comprehensive cost-model which will ascertain the feasibility of various ...

  5. Very High Frequency Volumetric Acoustic Array

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N111046

    The US Navy, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) plans to upgrade its facilities at the Acoustic Research Detachment (ARD). Part of this upgrade includes installation of volumetric measurement arrays to characterize the radiated acoustic signatures of scale submarine models. At low and mid-frequencies the planned volumetric arrays will likely resemble those currently installed at the Southeast Ala ...

  6. Human Computer Interfaces for supervisory control of Multi-mission, Multi-Agent Autonomy

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: OSD12HS1

    We propose to develop a collaborative control user interface that will enable operators to work more effectively with highly autonomous vehicles by engaging in a dialog to exchange ideas, ask questions, and resolve differences. We will develop a concept of operations for the collaborative control user interface, and we will create specific, representative scenarios describing situations and events ...

  8. Ship Shape: Three-dimensional ship modeling for submarine combat systems

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: N131024

    The rapid identification of ships from periscope and other imagery is a capability important to a variety of submarine missions, including sea control, anti-surface warfare, battle group support, covert operations landings, and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) operations. When spotting a new vessel, the imagery taken from submarines can be useful to construct three-dimensional ...

  9. Mission Planning Application for Submarine Operations and Risk Management

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: N131044

    Sonalysts proposes to develop a Mission Planning-Evaluation Tool (MP-ET) to support submarine Commanding Officers"risk and operational assessment of mission plans. Our approach is to extend the current APB-13 Mission Planning Application (MPA) by using a fuzzy logic approach. This method enables encoding the heuristics used by experts into an automated, quantifiable evaluation of operational risk. ...

  10. Mitigation of Biologically Induced Active Sonar Reverberation in Littoral Regions

    SBC: Advanced Reasoning Inc.            Topic: N131045

    Historically, operation of the mid-frequency active sonar in littoral regions has presented sonar operators with challenges due to the complex nature of the ocean acoustic environment in shallow waters. Although there are complex reasons for the appearance of clutter, research has shown that biological backscatter currently produces serious interference in midfrequency active sonar. This proposal ...
