  1. Milestone Mall

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are major changes in today's business methods. Expensive and time consuming travel for gathering project personnel together will be replaced, in part, by network-centric technology. Management directives of large corporations are increasinglystipulating the use of a collaborative workspace environment for their organizations that are non-collocated. In the defense sector, time-to-market of ...

  2. Eigen-Similarity Integral (ESI)- A New Concept for Invariant Image Similarity Detection

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Most of today's precision guided weapons use Global Positioning System (GPS) signals to gain improved accuracy. But, as Operation Iraqi Freedom recently showed, foreign militaries have equipment to locally jam GPS signals. Another effective method ofautonomous navigation is necessary to ensure mission success. Similar to rudimentary terrain recognition used in early cruise missiles, the matching o ...

  3. ABDUCTIVE NETWORKS FOR COMPLEX AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SOLVE MANY COMPLEX AIR FORCE PROBLEMS. ADVANCES IN COMPUTING SPEED AND EXISTING SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY ALONE ARE UNLIKELY TO RESULT IN REAL-TIME AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF MEETING THE COMPLEX REQUIREMENTS OF THE AIR FORCE MISSION. RATHER, AN ALTERNATIVE METHODOLOGY SUCH AS ABDUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY, A NEW TECHNOLOGY PRESENTED IN THIS ...

  5. Electronically Shunted Smart Material Damper Packages for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an alternate approach to damping for extreme environments, which uses an electrically shunted, surface mounted, smart material. This shunting approach has been most widely used in less extreme environments in conjunction with piezoceramic materials. The smart material is bonded to the surface of the target structure, in this case a part inside an aircraft engine. Stress on the part ...

  6. Smart, Adaptive Packages for Vibration Suppression

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In many structures with vibration problems, the nature of the problem is uncertain, or varies over time. Thus it is not possible 'a priori to design a linear, time-invariant, (LTI) feedback control law which is guaranteed to meet performance, or possibly even stability requirements over the entire operating range. These applications require an intelligent control system which can adapt to the ch ...

  7. Advanced Diode Pumped Laser Packaging

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High power lasers are needed for many airborne applications. These lasers must be compact, reliable in high vibration environments, and must also have a low per unit cost. Aculight proposes to develop a high repetition rate laser with average power of 10-20 watts using novel packaging designs and manufacturing methods. When fully developed, this technology will provide flight-worthy lasers at a ...

  8. High Brightness, Multi-Wavelength Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Improving the optical beam brightness of diode laser bars and optically pumped semiconductors is essential for many Air Force and commercial applications. In this proposed work Aculight will build and test a MIT/LL optical approach for decreasing the angular divergence of diode laser bars by a factor of at least 80. The MIT/LL approach will be implemented using Aculight's newly developed optical ...

  9. Dual use, non-cryogenic operating temperature, mid-infrared laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Future IRCM laser transmitters are being developed based on optically pumped GaSb mid-infrared semiconductor laser, however, the current technology requires the laser to be operated at cryogenic temperature. Aculight and MIT Lincoln Laboratory propose toinvestigate methods to increase the operating temperature of these semiconductor lasers, which will dramatically decrease the cost of the laser t ...

  10. Space Qualified One Micron Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Yb:SFAP laser system, using a novel resonator scheme, that will provide over 1 J per pulse output at 100 Hz at high efficiency, in a package far more compact, lower mass and efficient that conventional systems. The high-pulse-energy poweroscillator architecture is especially suited to space platforms where weight, volume, cooling and efficiency are particularly important. The propos ...
