  1. Marine Mammal Detection and Mitigation


    "The United States Navy is using and/or experimenting with active, coherent and incoherent sources to detect and localize submarines operated throughout the world. As the U.S. Navy continues to develop and employ active sensors and moves into littoralareas occupied by higher densities of marine mammals, adverse environmental impacts are likely to occur. Recently, in a U.S. Department of Commerce ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. An Ultra-Wideband Antenna Built Into a Parachute

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

    "On the modern electronic battlefield, a weapon that disables the enemy's electronics can be more useful than a weapon that executes a killing strike. This is possible because a radio frequency (RF) weapon that attacks electronics can be effective over amuch larger radius than a high-explosive (HE) weapon. For example, a single 155-mm artillery shell has a disabling blast radius limited to a few m ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Nanoporous Ordered Conducting Polymer Ultracapacitors

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

    "Low-resistance high-surface-area electrodes, and tunable potential window through band gap tuning of electrode materials are key to achieving high performance capacitors. We have synthesized ordered intrinsically conducting polymers with high surface areaand copper-like conductivity using a proprietary process. Our assessment in this feasibility study, through extensive characterization of numero ...

  9. Automated Planning and Design for Producability and Maintainability


    "Ship construction represents one of the more challenging planning problems in industry today. The purpose of this proposal is to reduce ship construction and operation costs by making optimal use of available automated fabrication facilities and designingfor maintainability. An efficient algorithm for solving this class of problem has been discovered and its feasibility has been validated in Ph ...

  10. 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 ...
