Multi-Mode On-Board Power GenerationSBC: EXQUADRUM INC Topic: AF15AT39
ABSTRACT: Exquadrum, Inc. proposes to develop an innovative multi-mode power generation system for hypersonic flight vehicles. This system produces the required power output that the flight vehicle demands, independent of the flight characteristics at the time. However, this system will work in conjunction with the propulsion system to augment the power generation capabilities. This is accomplishe ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Passive Radiometry Based Aerial NavigationSBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: AF15AT26
ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. A preliminary design of such a PMMW system will be created. Under Phase-II th ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Phase Transitions, Nucleation and Mixing Modeling through Trans-Critical ConditionsSBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF14AT23
ABSTRACT: In this proposal, researchers from Cascade Technologies and Professors Matthias Ihme and Ali Mani from Stanford University lay out a plan to develop predictive modeling tools for transcritical flows. Phase I of the three phase plan is outlined in detail and extensions are proposed for Phases II and III. Central points of the Phase I plan include: A comprehensive review and assessment ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Reverberation Mitigation of SpeechSBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC Topic: AF15AT17
ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Robust moving target handoff in GPS-denied environmentsSBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT34
ABSTRACT: Over the past decade, there has been a sustained interest in Global Positioning System (GPS) denied navigation technologies for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). This has been primarily due to the well accepted susceptibility of GPS signals to intentional jamming or unintentional interference and blockage. One of the challenging problems in GPS-denied navigation is handing off moving targ ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Simultaneous Multi-property Planar Laser Diagnostic for Hypersonic FlowsSBC: Metrolaser, Inc. 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
Small Sample Size Semi-Supervised Feature Clustering for Detection and Classification of Objects and Activities in Still and Motion Multi-spectral ImaSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT35
ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corp. and the Penn State Univ. propose research and development of innovative algorithms for classifying objects and activities observed in high-dimensional data, including video and hyperspectral imagery. The proposed algorithms include novel feature clustering techniques to enable effective characterization of intra-class and inter-class appearance variations in datasets ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Spectrum Sensing and Sharing by Cognitive Radios in Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) SystemsSBC: 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
