  1. Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

    SBC: STRAD Corporation            Topic: AF083184

    Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce reflections off the target, during Phase I, we have developed two new approaches for discriminating small delay differences from a sequence of radar dwells ...

  2. Holographic Waveguide Visor Display

    SBC: Bennett Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: AF093017

    Bennett Aerospace proposes to develop a transparent visor for helmet-mounted display (HMD) applications. The novel visor utilizes the wave-guiding characteristics of light to provide a low mass and a large eye box. BENEFIT: The revolutionary technology provides significant improvements in terms of mass, cost, volume and optical performance. Bennett Aerospace’s approach allows for a larger field ...

  4. Dual Mode Electrical Accumulator Unit (DMEAU)

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF093173

    The move towards more-electric aircraft continues to increase the complexity of electrical power systems (EPS) on modern airborne platforms. In addition to ever expanding peak and regenerative power demands, the flight criticality of the EPS also continues to increase as more systems become electric, thereby requiring more stringent power continuity during mode transitions in the EPS. The dual-m ...

  5. Non-Lethal Avian Active Denial System Using Directed Energy


    XADS proposes the use of 532 nm green laser technology to effectively, efficiently, and safely detect and prevent avian problems on and around airport runways. The effectiveness and use of laser light to deter birds has been proven on numerous occasions and using numerous products. The ability to sweep a runway and the surrounding grounds with a silent, efficient technology will provide airports ...

  6. DTACSS: Decision-Theoretic Automation for Coordinated Space Surveillance

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF093058

    While the United States is increasingly reliant on space-based technologies, our satellite assets are increasingly vulnerable to attacks and collisions with debris or other satellites. Current space surveillance systems are stovepiped and unresponsive; when possible collisions ("orbital conjunctions") are detected in advance, additional tracking data can only be acquired through complex human inte ...

  10. Accelerated Reconnaissance Window Development

    SBC: THIRD WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF093129

    Grinding is used to satisfy figure and finish requirements for optics, removing successive layers of material to ensure alleviation of any damage created from the prior operation. Consequently, fabrication times are slow and expensive. The optics manufacturing industry currently lacks physics-based models needed to understand the impact of process and material variables on final part quality and ...
