  1. Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection of Fastener Holes in Two-Layer Structures

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Nondestructive inspection is a key component of programs aimed at extending the service life of aging aircraft. One important capability is the detection of cracking and corrosion around fastener holes. In thick, multiple layer structures, there is oftenno solution but removal of the fasteners for inspection, a costly and potentially damaging process. Phased array ultrasonics offer a novel and ...

  2. High speed low loss optical switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This program addresses the development of a solid-state optical switching technology. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and high reliability. Sub-microsecond andmultiple-port fiber switches of low loss and low cost are long sought after performance attributes. This type of high performance optical switches is i ...

  3. Network Application of Piezo-Crystal

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High performance fiberoptic switches are in great demand for use in the information super-highway and modern defense systems. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and highreliability. Based on a successful phase I program, Agiltron Corporation proposes to further develop a novel solid-state 4x4 cross-connect swit ...

  4. Fusion of GMTI Reports from Multiple Sensors in Clutter

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Airborne systems for ground surveillance of mobile targets provde ever more significant tactical information for military operations. Fusion of ground moving target indicator (GMTI) radar data from multiple airborne platforms with overlapping fields ofregard can improve tracking of moving ground targets. OSD is actively working to establishe capabilities in collaborative surveillance tasking and ...

  5. Dynamic Operational Retasking of ISR Sensors

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "It is widely recognized that improved real-time dynamic retasking of airborne Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance sensors is needed to enable rapid information gathering in support of tactical battlefield operations. Proposed Air Force modernizationplans feature a distributed C2 architecture composed of a confederation of airborne assets including: combat aircraft, multi-sensor command and ...

  6. Multi-platform Multi-target GMTI Tracking with Out-of-sequence Measurements

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop advanced multi-sensor multi-target out-of-sequence measurement (OOSM) filtering and data association algorithms using a central tracking architecture, evaluate their performance, and implement the algorithms in ALPHATECH's extensivelytested and evaluated GMTI Precision Fire Control Tracking (PFCT) software for delivery to AFRL. Accurate, reliable, and efficient OOSM processi ...

  7. Distributed Autonomous Cooperative Control (DACC) for a Team of Tactical UAVs

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Distributed autonomous cooperative control is required to realize the full potential of autonomous assets in a tactical operational setting. For a tactical battlespace, there are many levels of applications requiring cooperative control. This researchaddresses the mission control level where the control task is to coordinate multiple heterogeneous distributed assets to achieve the desired global ...

  8. Model-Based Fusion of Multiple Look SAR for Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "In our Phase I study we developed and evaluated several initial approaches to fusing multiple-looks for SAR combat ID. Extensive evaluation of decision-level multi-look fusion showed there were significant performance benefits compared with single lookID. In Phase I of this SBIR, we developed and tested an initial, aspect-constrained hypothesis-level fusion, where pose parameters become part of ...

  9. Model-Based 3D LADAR ATR Development and Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to characterize performance levels of a model-based 3D LADAR ATR system in order to understand the applicability of LADAR sensors to target exploitation in complex scenes. The MSTAR program has successfully demonstrated the applicability ofmodel-based recognition to 2D SAR processing of targets in a range of operating conditions (OCs). We will extend that approach to 3D LADAR exploit ...

  10. Enterprise-wide Strategic Planning and Mnagement System

    SBC: Bernier & Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Strategic planning, like other information intensive functions, remains more an art than a science. One reason for this is a general inability to efficiently and effectively manage information. The inability to cleanly collect, interpret, and analyzeinformation results in making more subjective decisions as we carry out complicated processes such as strategic planning. And the problem seems to wo ...
