The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A New Tabular Algorithm for Rapid Vector Quantization Encoding and Nearest Neighbor Classification

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    We offer an approach to a multiple-order-of-magnitude processing speed/efficiency improvement in vector quantization (VQ) data/image compression, automatic target recognition/classification, and time signal/signature classification. We base our approach on an algorithmic breakthrough, the TABULAR NEAREST-NEIGHBOR ENCODER (TNE), which we discovered and partially developed last year. This algorithm ...

  2. Cost Estimating Methodology for Advanced Air Vehicles

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Historically, the Air Vehicle Technology industry has developed technologies based upon performance and, to a much lesser extent, the cost of individual technologies. The public and government will no longer justify and support these costs inlight of a perception that the enemy has been defeated. Emphasis of Science and Technology efforts must now be on system affordability. Further "gray beard ...

  3. COMBAT IDENTIFICATION TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Frontier Technology, Inc. and our Consultants Dr. Marvin Cohen (GTRI) and Dr. Steven Gustafson (UDRI) will develop several new Combat Identification and sensing concepts useful for combat air-air and air-ground identification. The sensing technique proposed is related to SAR and is called High Range Resolution Radar Low-Order-Tomography (HRRR-LOT). HRRR-LOT provides a way to extend the useful in ...

  4. Frontier Technology, Inc.

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Digital surveillance of surface and underwater battlefields is complicated by the complexity of the environment, stealth of various threats, and lack of a comprehensive single imaging sensor technology. Therefore, the fusion of multiple sensors inputs of differing type and response characteristics is necessary to achieve coverage in space, time, spectral wavelength and sensing modality. A ...

  5. Avionics Collabortive Engineering An Automated Methodology for Affordability Evaluations

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Technical planners are required to prioritize the development of technologies for new systems relative to user needs. Designs for these new systems or technologies typically only exist at the conceptual or preliminary design level, yet trade studies must be performed to assess cost and effectiveness, as well as overall affordability. Collaborative Engineering is being implemented within Air Forc ...

  6. Weapon System Integrated Cost Model: An Automated Methodology for Affordability Evaluation

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Laboratory developers and planners are required to prioritize the development of technologies for new systems relative to user needs. Designs for these new systems typically only exist at the conceptual level, yet trade studies much be performed to assess cost and effectiveness, as well as overall affordability. Developers and planners require a methodology and tool-set which enable concept cost ...

  7. Species Identification Software

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    This proposal addresses the detection, identification and measurement of the concentration of molecular species in remote sensing data, from ground-based, aircraft-based or space-based sensors. The serial combination of standard analysis tools increases the sensitivity of the detection and allows detection of molecular emission at low concentration. This technique will have wide application in a ...
