  2. Computer Simulation for the Design of Radar Absorbing Material (RAM)

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To avoid detection by enemy radar, military platforms are often coated with Radar Absorbing Material (RAM). RAM is intended to operate over a wide range of frequencies with a minimum amount of angular dependence to increase platform survivability. Wepropose the development of a framework for designing broadband RAM by integrating expertise into very efficient computational electromagnetics and de ...

  3. Digital Direction Finding

    SBC: ARGON ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Argon Engineering Associates presents an innovative approach to Direction Finding (DF), replacing analog Butler Matrix beamforming with an all-digital adaptive beam former. Argon proposes to implement FFT channelization before beamforming using FieldProgrammable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). This allows both beamforming and advanced signal detection algorithms performed in general purpose processors to u ...

  8. Towards understanding germination of B. anthracis spores

    SBC: BIOTRACES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The potency of anthrax as a BW agent is due to the ability of the anthrax spores to survive in a dormant state even under extreme conditions. Unfortunately, the molecular signals controlling Bacillus spore germination are not well known. Identifying thegermination mechanism will permit the discovery of new classes of germinants. The elucidation of receptors responsible for germination is especi ...

  9. Supersensitive detection of scrub typhus

    SBC: BIOTRACES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The detection of diseases induced by rickettsia is difficult. PCR has been used, but the sensitivity is often far from perfect. Serologic tests are based mostly on host antibodies, i.e. they use late biomarkers because antibodies against O.tsutsugamushi usually appear only after about 10-14 days. Antigens, i.e. bacterial proteins are present much earlier but a very sensitive immunoassay is nece ...

  10. Direct P(Y) Aquisition

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CRS has developed software based simulation and development tools, for advanced GPS systems. These tools (in conjunction with associated hardware) allow rapid design, test, validation and prototyping using a single platform. We propose to use this toolset(and associated hardware) for the simulation and design of Network Assisted GPS Receiver with direct P(Y) acquisition capability. The software ...
