  1. Superconducting Developments for Compact Power and Energy Systems

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04EP6

    Superconducting coils are capable of storing considerable amounts of energy. Should a coil quench, due to overheating or exceeding the critical field or current, the stored energy in the coil must be dissipated safely - without endangering personnel or damaging the coil or control systems. In any superconducting coil design, it is essential to design and build the system such that limits of the ...

  2. Improved Trajectory Control for Penetration into Soils at 4000 ft/sec

    SBC: DE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04160

    We propose to develop an earth penetrator with improved shape for trajectory stability during high-speed penetration. Several promising penetrator shaping concepts have been identified in Phase I. Through further analysis, one or two of these will be selected for further development. Penetrator designs will be formulated and optimized, then tested through gun firings of scale-model penetrators int ...

  3. Innovative Filtering Techniques for Ground Target Tracking


    The project focus is the development of a ground target tracking algorithm to support the JSTARS radar operating in the GMTI mode. Multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) algorithms maintain alternative data associations to represent report-to-track association ambiguities. In Phase 1 we developed a prototype MHT algorithm not requiring the Bayes’ posterior distribution for the target state to be G ...

  4. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  5. Algorithms for Hyper-spectral Image Processing

    SBC: DYNAMIC SENSORS, INC.            Topic: AF05207

    Dynamic Sensors, Incorporated (DSI) proposes a superior approach to Algorithms for Hyper-spectral Image Processing for the problem of spatial-spectral-temporal measurements of transient phenomena. DSI will demonstrate a Machine Intelligent Processor (MIP) software tool for rapid identification of dynamic battlefield events. MIP is an image analysis approach that is based on a neurobiological mod ...

  6. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    The main objective of this program is to develop a new class of high performance hard magnetic materials that will maintain an energy product of 30 MGOe or greater at temperatures up to 450 °C. These novel magnetic materials are greatly needed for the "more electric" airplanes and space vehicle applications where a high operating temperature is a strict requirement. The approaches to be used for ...

  7. Large Area Millimeter Wave Dosimetry

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: OSD04H05

    Active Denial Systems are non-lethal, counter-personnel directed energy weapons that project focused energy beams in the millimeter-wave spectrum to induce an avoidance response and repel individuals without injury. Calibration of such weapons requires accurately measuring millimeter-wave flux density over large areas at distances corresponding to the range of ADS weapons. To ensure that the beam ...

  8. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Aircraft Engines

    SBC: EXTRUDE HONE CORP.            Topic: AF05141

    Critical components for aircraft engines are forcing increasing demands for higher accuracy, advanced materials and smaller features to enable advanced designs. The proposed effort will examine the ability of short pulse laser machining to machine aerospace materials at an acceptable throughput rate with minimal subsurface damage. Materials to be investigated will include commonly used aerospace ...

  9. Practical Ionospheric Enhancement Technology

    SBC: General Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: AF05028

    The main objective of the proposed program is to develop highly exothermic compositions capable of generating temperatures up to 4,000K in order to achieve significant vaporization of certain metals, with boiling points in excess of 3,000K, which are capable of generating ionization in the presence of atomic oxygen. Laboratory studies are proposed to show proof-of-concept and derive vaporiza ...
