  1. Exploiting Evolutionary Algorithms for Improved Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    "The U.S. Army is conducting extensive research involving the development of innovative algorithms for detecting and classifying high-value military targets using LADAR sensors. Many of these designs employ a model-based approach in which targets,background, and target/background interactions are modeled. A central tenet of this approach is that the large number of target, sensor, and background ...

  2. Stabilization of Phased Focus Array Using Electrochromic Technology

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Future space-based radar systems (SBRS) are expected to be critical to defense intelligence and modern battlefield analysis. SBRS design concepts involve thermal control issues exacerbated by low thermal mass, high radiative losses, and pressure to meetdesign areal densities of 4 to 6 kg/m2. To address these issues Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc. has developed prototype designs for electrochromic de ...

  3. Model Architecture Verification and Validation Tools- Extending the Use of Colored Petri Nets for Designing Command and Control Systems

    SBC: EXPAND, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Colored Petri Nets (CPNs) are now accepted as a powerful and general graphical language for designing complex systems. Several CPN editors, including Modasco's VSO Design, are now available or in development. However, these tools do not restrict the modelarchitect to realistic designs that satisfy the system's physical and functional requirements. Recent investigations by Modasco indicate that VS ...

  4. An Ultra-Compact Impulse Radiating Antenna for Space Applications

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Compact Ultra-Wideband (UWB) antennas with broad bandwidth could be of great use in a variety of space-based applications, including radar, communications, and surveillance. The challenge is to deploy a lightweight UWB antenna that is stowable in a smallvolume, that is automatically deployable, and that will be resistant to the harsh space environment. To overcome these challenges we propose an U ...

  5. Lightweight Radar Absorbing Materials using Functionalized Binders in Aqueous Media

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

    "Current radar absorbing materials (RAMs) are heavy and require hazardous materials for processing. Development of a lighter weight binder with a suitable morphology, combined with environmentally friendly solvents to produce RAMs would offer significantadvantages in manufacturing and in the field. As in any functional filled polymer, interaction between the different components is a must. The pre ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Long-term Confinement of Dense Positron Plasmas

    SBC: POSITRONICS RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to store large numbers of positrons, also called antielectrons, for long periods of time. Antimatter has the largest specific energy known to humankind, i.e. 180 MJ/microgram. An ordnance package containing micrograms ofpositrons stored for days would comprise an extremely powerful, lethal and revolutionary weapon. We will assemble, test, and operate a positron st ...

  8. Stabilization and Long Term Confinement of Atomic Positronium

    SBC: POSITRONICS RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to store large numbers of positronium atoms, bound quantum states of electrons and positrons, for long periods of time. Antimatter has the largest specific energy known to humankind, i.e. 180 MJ/microgram. An ordnancepackage containing micrograms of positrons stored for days would comprise an extremely powerful, lethal and revolutionary weapon. We will fabricat ...

  10. Novel Processing Methods for Space Optical Coatings- Phase II

    SBC: Thor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mission of the U.S. Air Force has expanded to include responsibility for global intelligence and force projection-the ability to "reach out and touch someone" anywhere on Earth. To meet these mission requirements, the Air Force has greatly expandedits space technology development efforts.Space-deployable membranes have the potential to yield large gains in systems capabilities through the red ...
