  1. Cooperative Control of UAVs for Tracking Moving Targets Through Information Gain

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF04T011

    Toyon Research Corporation and the University of California at Santa Barbara propose to develop a control system for Cooperative Search, Acquisition, and Tracking (CSAT) by small, autonomous Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs). This system will include algorithms for dynamic routing and sensor management to support cooperative tracking of one or more moving ground targets and will be demonstrated at an a ...

  2. Control of Cooperative Engagements with Robust and Distributed Optimization (Concerto(TM))

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T011

    Toyon Research Corporation and the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) propose to develop decision and control algorithms for cooperative agents operating under an intermittent asynchronous communication network. Agents will be expected to perform a variety of cooperative missions such as persistent intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), target search, acquisition, and ...

  3. Seamless Non-Line-Of-Sight Communications for Urban Warfare

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T022

    With its capability for long range and good penetration, UHF is a popular wireless band. Because of this, frequency allocations in UHF are typically small, on the order of tens of kHz. At the same time, there is an increasing popularity of aerial platforms, such as UAVs, containing a variety of imaging systems. So, while there may be numerous UAVs in a particular region of interest, there is no cu ...

  4. Further Experimental Validation of a Fluid-Structure-Material Interaction (FSMI) Modeling and Simulation Toolset

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT025

    ATA Engineering, Inc. (ATA), partnered with a nonprofit research institution, CUBRC, Inc., (CUBRC), proposes a Phase II STTR project to further develop and continue validating a novel multiphysics simulation technology. The project team will implement the technology in a fluid-structure-material interaction (FSMI) software toolset that incorporates mutual interactions between aerodynamics and stru ...

  6. Flexible Sensor Network and Its Embedded Integrated Circuits for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF16AT03

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensors and electronics used by ...

  7. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...

  8. Infrared Micro-Laser Arrays for Target Image Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (2Kx2K), response time < 4 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame r ...

  9. Low-Defect GeSn and SiGeSn for Integrated High-Performance SWIR and MWIR Optoelectronics

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF16AT28

    Advanced imaging techniques and, novel intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) methods are of great interest to the U.S. Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, but associated high-costs of III-V and II-VI MWIR and SWIR materials prohibit their practical widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. In this program, we intend to investigate ...

  10. Blended Reality Solution for Live, Virtual, and Constructive Field Training

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT011

    A Battlefield Airman (BA) has one of the most challenging positions in the military. BA personnel are tasked with the dual roles of being warfighters as well as Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) members and Special Operations Weather Technicians often while behind enemy lines. These complex duties require high fidelity training. In some cases, such as Pararescuem ...
