SBC: PROSENSING INC. Topic: AF17CT01
This Phase I STTR proposal describes the development of a dual frequency millimeter-wave sun tracking radiometer designed to measure total atmospheric attenuation from ground level to the top of the atmosphere.The suns brightness temperature, which is on the order of 10,000K at millimeter-wavelengths, provides an ideal background reference allowing high dynamic range estimation of total atmospheri ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Subspace Tracking and Manifold Learning Based Heterogeneous Data Fusion for Unexpected Event DiscoverySBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF16AT12
We aim to develop data-driven heterogeneous data fusion approaches for unanticipated event/target detection, which will be more robust and immune to model mismatch problems encountered by model-based approaches. Considering the low intrinsic dimensionality of the sensor data, we propose several data-level fusion approaches based on some state-of-the-art dimensionality reduction techniques. For lin ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC Topic: AF18AT014
The introduction of computer vision in precision-guided ammunition will potentially increase their targeting capabilities, in particular for moving targets such as tanks, vehicles and mobile command posts. EO/IR cameras offer a relatively inexpensive, low-SWaP payload solution which, combined with latest advances in SIMD hardware (GPUs), are finally starting to allow running sophisticated visual g ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. Topic: AF18AT008
Adaptive optics (AO) system performance is hindered by the mechanical limits of the deformable mirror (DM), namely stroke limits, interactuator stroke limits, and mechanical resonance.The nature of the multi-in multi-out (MIMO) control system does not lend itself well to notch filters to combat the mechanical resonances, and the stroke limits introduce non-linearities to the system.The traditional ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Innoflight, Inc. Topic: AF15AT23
ABSTRACT: The next-generation Global Positioning System (GPS) in congested and contested environments is expected to exploit Spectrum Holes (SH) in order to provide uninterrupted Position Navigation and Timing (PNT) service worldwide. Innoflight has teamed with the Air Force Institute of Technologys (AFITs) Autonomy and Navigation Technology (ANT) Center to develop a system based on cognitive radi ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Enig Associates, Inc. Topic: AF15AT22
ABSTRACT: Enig Associates, Inc., a small business providing advanced modeling and simulation capabilities to the DoD and DoE, is proposing an innovative and novel electrical approach, using explosive-driven flux compression generators (FCG) to convert explosive chemical energy to electromagnetic energy with very high current output and superb energy conversion efficiency and then Joule heat light ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force

SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED Topic: AF15AT38
ABSTRACT: An unseeded measurement technique is proposed for simultaneous spatially-resolved measurements of density, temperature, and velocity in hypersonic wind tunnel flows with the future potential for time-resolved measurement capability. A variant of filtered Rayleigh scattering (FRS) will be developed that takes advantage of unique monotonic relationships between molecular vapor cell filter ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: COLDQUANTA, INC. Topic: AF17AT028
ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
