  1. Computer-Aided Design Tools for Three-Dimensional Circuit Integration

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "R3 Logic, Incorporated proposes to perform a comprehensive study to develop a fullsuite of computer-aided design tools for three-dimensional circuit integration. Thecompany will build on its existing tool set that enables 3-D physical layout andverification and will develop recommendations for extending these tools to permitanalyses of 3-D circuit performance, including thermal and electromagneti ...

  2. Methods for Detecting and Eliminating Undesired Target Returns from Training Data in Adaptive Radar Processing

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Recent studies have shown that the performance of Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) degrades when there are moving targets in the secondary training data. Although a variety of techniques have been proposed for controlling the effects of targets inthe secondary data (TSD), these techniques generally do not take advantage of external information. We are developing knowledge-based STAP (KBSTA ...

  3. Through Strike Battle Damage Assessment using Synthetic Aperture Radar

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose novel data-adaptive approaches for processing synthetic aperture radar (SAR) phase history data to automatically assess subtle damage inflicted by small sub-munitions on military ground vehicles. These techniques are designed for a battlefieldscenario in which the ground vehicle under attack is illuminated by a stand-off airborne SAR sensor before, during and after the weapon strike, ...

  5. Regionally Adaptive Precision Tracking

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "While there have been a number of recent advances in track precision and maintenance via the AMSTE program, long-term track maintenance remains an elusive goal. Track breaks are primarily the result of miss-detections due to micro-obscuration from foliageand buildings and or due to the vehicle dropping below Minimum Detectable Velocity (MDV) because of parking or stopping at intersections and yie ...

  6. High Efficiency, Scalable, Parallel Processing Approaches for Multi-Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: Aximetric, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Aximetric and the Cornell Theory Center (CTC) strongly backed by Microsoft High Performance Computing (HPC) lab proposes a portable parallel computing model for windows platform called Java based Bulk Synchronous Parallel System (JBSP) that is implementedusing the .net clustering technology developed by Microsoft. The uniqueness of this approach is to provide portable model called JBSP.Net using ...

  7. Self-Cleaning Dynamic Adhesive Materials

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed research mimics the adhesive strategy of the tokay gecko to produce a novel, dry, self-cleaning dynamically modulated adhesive. A soft mat of artificial hairs allows the adhesive force of the sticky spatulae to be modulated. This facilitateseasy engagement and disengagement with the surface, as well as promoting self-cleaning."

  8. Fracture-Initiated Hybrid Adhesives for Self-Repairing Composites

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "Novel fracture-initiated resin additives are proposed for fabricating polymer matrix composites with the ability to self-repair after sustaining structural damage. The Phase I objective was to develop an easily processed resin system with strong adhesionto reinforcing fibers, high thermal stability, robust reactivity over a wide temperature range, and the ability to recover mechanical properties ...

  9. Sign Understanding in Support of Autonomous Navigation (SUSAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Mobile robots currently do not have the ability to detect and read arbitrary signs. Existing work on road sign recognition is template based, limiting the detectable signs to a specific set. This is a major hindrance to mobile robot usability, since theycannot be tasked using directions that are intuitive to humans. It also limits their ability to report their position relative to intuitive landm ...

  10. A Web Site Misinformation Detection System

    SBC: CRYSTALIZ, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed project concerns the design and development of a Web Site MisinformationDetection System for automatically reviewing web sites to identify intentionallymisleading information. In the proposed approach, a relational ontology of website categories and semantic entities is populated by autonomous agents capable ofsearching the web for documents of preselected domains and extracting sema ...
