  1. 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 ...

  2. 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, ...

  3. 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."

  4. 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 ...

  5. Reflex Triode

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Reflex triode bremsstrahlung sources potentially provide warm X-ray sources (20 keV to 500 keV), capable of generating high doses (~10 cal/g gold) over exposure areas of ~20 cm2. This needed capability allows experimental verification of warm X-ray inducedthermomechanical response, SGEMP, and box IEMP models for achieving component and system certification to hostile environments.In a reflex trio ...

  6. Microturbine Feasibility Demonstration

    SBC: LOCUST, USA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Advanced military unmanned aero and ground vehicles can benefit from small, lightweight, turbo shaft engines that operate on heavy fuel. Starting with engines that were first developed for use in remote controlled model aircraft and upgrading theirtechnology can produce very capable and affordable engines. This program will upgrade a 10 HP turbo shaft engine (tested in Phase I) to improve its r ...

  9. Advanced Collection Management

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the research effort will be to apply optimization technology to developing a coordinated collection plan for a set of airborne platforms. This problem is important because of the imminent addition of the Tier2+ (Global Hawk) and Tier3- (Dark Star) Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) to current intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance assets. It is difficult because of the large n ...

  10. Microelectromechanical Optoelectronic Devices Based on AlOx/GaAlAs

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CoreTek proposes to develop a novel micromachined GaA1As dielectric mirror technology with 750 nm bandwidth and apply it to fabricate novel tunable Fabry-Perot filters and Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs). Relying on the precision of epitaxial growth of III-V materials and selective etching processes, our simple but powerful approach will allow realization of novel tunable filter ...
