  1. Rapid Design & Development of Behaviors for Autonomous Vehicles

    SBC: BLUEFIN ROBOTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Bluefin Robotics proposes (in Phase I) to create a methodology for developing the Bluefin Agent Behavior Language (BABL) and associated tools. BABL will enable the rapid design and development of behaviors for autonomous vehicles. Key features of BABL arethat it:1) Makes a minimal set of assumptions about the capabilities and assumptions of the target UVs.2) Maintains generality without losing the ...

  2. Sign Understanding in Support of Autonomous Navigation (SUSAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Mobile robots currently cannot detect and read arbitrary signs. Existing work on road sign recognition is template based, limiting the detectable signs to a specific set. This is a major hindrance to mobile robot usability, since they cannot be taskedusing directions that are intuitive to humans. It also limits their ability to report their position relative to intuitive landmarks.We propose to de ...

  3. A Web Site Misinformation Detection System

    SBC: CRYSTALIZ, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed SBIR Phase-II project called MisInformation Classification and Analysis for semi-structured data (MICA) (was called Website Misinformation Detection System in Phase-I) will deliver a software product that addresses classifying large volume ofsemi-structured documents and data streams in order to detect misinformation.Misinformation underlies a number of national security threats inclu ...

  4. Self-Mobile Trailier

    SBC: IROBOT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    iRobot proposes to design a XTV (eXtreme Terrain Vehicle) to carry significant combat loads for SOF foot patrols to objective areas. The XTV is fully amphibious and has a novel 6WDrive, 6WSteer active suspension/adaptive traction system powered by a runsilent hybrid diesel/electric drive. It can transit mountain paths, fast flowing rivers and cluttered urban alleys, either autonomously or by remot ...

  5. Tactical Antenna Switching and Positioning System (TASPS)

    SBC: MAGNETIC SCIENCES            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase II SBIR is to design and build a fully functioning Tactical Antenna Switching and Positioning System (TASPS) that can be commercially produced in limited quantities. The TASPS will be carried aboard a variety of Navy vessels andwill provide temporary passengers aboard the ship the ability to maintain UHF SATCOM communications despite superstructure blockage caused by th ...

  6. Antenna Enhancements for SOF Applications

    SBC: MEGAWAVE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    During Special Reconnaissance (SR) missions, U.S. Special Operating Forces (SOF) require tactical VHF/UHF antennas with physical and electrical characteristics, as well as radiation performance, that significantly exceed those of the antennas currentlyissued with legacy radios. This proposal addresses the design and development of an Enhanced Antenna Suite (EAS) that can be tailored to SOF needs ...

  7. Unconventional Space Power

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop new electrochemical supercapacitor materials for high power space applications that will complement current photovoltaic/battery space power systems. PI will synthesize polymeric supercapacitor materialsthat will provide double the energy density of current state-of-the-art supercapacitors by incorporating electron withdrawing substituents along th ...

  8. Hand-held, Standoff Chemical-Biological Hazard Detector

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal Physical Sciences Inc. outlines the innovative adaptation our tunable filter technology to meet SOCOM's need for a man-portable standoff chemical/biological agent sensor. This technology has been successfully tested by the U.S. Armyduring chemical simulant releases conducted at the Nevada Test Site in 1999, 2000, and 2001 The system passively detects changes in the infrared sign ...

  9. High Resolution Sea Surface Mapping Radar System

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR proposal addresses the development of a novel rapid scanning radar interferometer designed to map the surface topography of the ocean surface within one kilometer of an unmanned surface vehicle (USV). A system capable of mapping local seaconditions and commanding an adaptive vessel control system would have the ability to steer the boat into the steepest waves to reduce the chanc ...

  10. Advanced Tactical Laser Adaptive Simulator-Visualization, Operations, Training, Engineering, and Rehearsal Toolkit (ATLAS- VOTER)

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The ATLAS-VOTER Toolkit is physics based with detailed aircraft models, environmental effects, operator, instructor, and analyst work stations, High Energy Laser (HEL) modeling, and graphic user interfaces. Because of the maturity of its componentsoftware modules, this SBIR effort could deliver a value added tool suite by the end of Phase I. We will combine the Schafer simulation products Integr ...
