  1. Knowledge Flow in Command and Control (C2)


    The volume and complexity of information available to decision makers by modern information technology presents both unprecedented challenges and great opportunities. Unfortunately, many information technologies intended to assist military decision-makers acquire, filter, manage, and integrate information do not alleviate their information burden; they add to it. To be effective, modern military C ...

  2. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: SB062023

    Advanced Scientific Concepts has developed a compact, flash ladar 3D camera. It’s very small size makes it well suited to the serpentine robot. It is not a scanning ladar, but instead takes a 128x128 pixel image with a single flash of laser light and can acquire 30 frames per second. Photographs at several kilometers are obtained with a miniature, 22 millijoule high powered laser of our desig ...

  3. Automated Crowd Modeling / Monitoring System

    SBC: VIDIENT SYSTEMS            Topic: SOCOM06014

    Vidient proposes a computer-aided video/audio surveillance system to detect, monitor, understand and anticipate crowd behavior. Audio and video sensors were selected because they are low cost, portable, passive, and if mounted properly, are difficult to detect visually. A robust crowd detection and interpretation method using a Bayesian fusion framework to integrate multiple video/audio processing ...

  4. Culture and Modeling of Routine and Non-Routine Behavior

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    Crowd management is an important task for civilian, police, and military groups that can be very difficult on its own, and becomes even more difficult in hostile environments. The difficulty comes from the many levels of granularity that events can happen at. Making such a system automated adds further challenges, due to difficulties with modeling and sensors. Accurate large-scale crowd models are ...

  5. MOCA: Monitoring of Crowd Activities

    SBC: SECURICS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    The MOCA project will develop a network-enabled DSP+FPGA-enhanced image-intensified embedded system for self-contained low-power monitoring of crowds in open and in complex urban terrain. The Phase I effort will develop new algorithms explicitly for crowd management, rather than building on the traditional intelligent video surveillance algorithms that are focused on isolated targets in motion. P ...

  6. Design and Development of Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB062015

    Low cost IR Sensors are needed for a variety of Military and commercial applications such as low cost thermal imagers and the ability to detect and defeat threats such as mortar fire on ground vehicles. SiGe based IR Focal Planes offers a low cost alternative for developing near IR sensors that will not require any cooling and can operate in the NIR band. The attractive features of SiGe based IRFP ...

  7. ACTOR: Automated Collateral Tactics for OPFOR Responses

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A06210

    A key challenge for battlefield simulation is the estimation of enemy courses of action (COAs). Current adversarial COA development is a manual time-consuming process prone to errors due to limited knowledge about the adversary and its ability to adapt. Development of decision aids that can predict adversary’s intent and range of possible behaviors, as well as automation of such technologies wit ...

  8. Portable Oxygen Generator

    SBC: SEQUAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB062005

    This SBIR program will produce a portable oxygen concentrator that weighs less than seven pounds, consumes less than 100 watts, and delivers oxygen continuously at 4 liters per minute. Our approach combines an advanced gas compressor with SeQual's recent breakthroughs in Pressure-Swing Adsorption (PSA). In Phase I, we will test two candidate compressors: a spherical-piston design and linear piston ...

  9. Distributed Modular Networked Devices


    To address the USSOCOM need for modular tactical packaging (MTP) of body-worn signals intelligence system electronics, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop the new DIstributed MOdular Networked Devices (DIMOND) interconnectivity architecture. This proposed electronics packaging and interconnect technology is based on COTS computer components and MOTS radio frequency communication ...

  10. Modular Tactical Packaging

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06016

    The goal of this project is to eliminate the current base modules and replace them with a distributed modular tactical packaging system. This system will allow for greater flexibility, reduced encumbrance and an easier to use electronics package which will allow both man-mounted and hand-held operation. By designing a wearable unit that is easily reconfigurable, soldiers will have “plug and p ...
