  1. SSA Anomaly Characterization using Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) and other AI techniques

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF171066

    Defending space systems against intentional and unintentional threats is paramount, and requires space situational awareness, i.e., knowing what is going on, what the root problem is that is manifesting itself, and even predicting likely threats based on existing patterns.The ultimate goal of this proposed effort is to automate and thereby radically improve SSA threat assessment by correlating the ...

  2. FRM Automated Development (FAD)

    SBC: ACTA SBIR Holdings, LLC            Topic: AF171087

    In this Phase II we will transition the successful Phase I demonstration of a unified theoretical methodology for surrogate model development at the step and process levels, and of a heterogeneous software architecturethe FAD Tool Frameworkthat together are able to automate the development and production of fast running models (FRMs) into a fully functional standalone FAD Tool.FRMs are surrogate m ...

  3. Solid-State Amplifier/Transmitter replacements for Travelling Wave Tube (TWT) Technology

    SBC: DAICO INDUSTRIES, INC            Topic: AF171113

    The United States Air Force currently relies on various legacy Tube technology-based Radar Transmitters which are increasingly more expensive to own and operate due to diminishing sources of supply and support from OEMs. Some Tube-based Transmitters in mission critical applications, such as the AN/FPS-108 and the AN/FPQ-16 Radars, struggle with unreliable TWTAs. Daico proposes to ultimately replac ...

  4. Optimized Software Interpreter for Routing via Iridium Satellites

    SBC: Mimyr, LLC            Topic: AF172009

    In this Phase II effort, Mimyr proposes to continue development and initial production of the Optimized Software Interpreter for Routing via Iridium Satellites (OSIRIS) system that has been validated and proven feasible in a successful Phase I effort. The goal of the program has changed since the Phase I proposal was awarded and the OSIRIS name is still used although Iridium satellites are no long ...

  5. Virtual Assistant for Air and Space Operations Center Staff

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF182005

    Multi-domain command and control (MDC2) requires an efficient and effective capability to perform cross-domain effects synchronizationfor example, coordinating a planned air strike mission from one operation center around an ongoing cyber mission from another.We propose to build Effects Explorer, which combines an intuitive interface with state-of-the-art data analysis to accelerate effects synchr ...

  6. Low Cost Headset-mounted Augmented Reality Display for Mobility Pilots and Crew

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF182005

    Augmented reality head mounted displays (HMDs) provide meaningful increases in situational awareness, which can have a significant impact on safety and effectiveness.Existing military HMDs/HUDs are extremely expensive and mostly are deployed in tactical aircraft. Commercial Augmented Reality (AR) displays are neither robust enough for aircraft use nor are they designed to be used with other pilot/ ...

  8. Demonstration and Validation of Brush LHE Alkaline Zn-Ni as a Brush Cadmium (Cd) Alternative

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF172002

    US Department of Defense (DOD) branches utilize aluminum and steel alloys for components throughout the different weapon systems. Traditionally brush cadmium (Cd) plating is used for local touch up after Cd plating operations and during repair and overhaul. Both the Cd plating process and the hex-chromate conversion coating typically used have proven to be toxic (unlike other processes such as chr ...

  9. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: ExoAnalytic Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF183005

    There is an acute need for low cost, high accuracy, timely SSA for both the United States Air Force and commercial customers. The ExoAnalytic Global Telescope Network (EGTN) is currently comprised of over 250 optical telescopes used to maintain state accuracy of geostationary objects. Optical telescopes are constrained by the relative position of the Sun, which leads to gaps in the custody of spac ...

  10. RAPID: Airborne Visual Analytics (AVIAN)


    In this Phase II SBIR project, UtopiaCompression (UC) will adapt its stack of Visual Analytics technologies, including its commercial Maritime Visual Analytics (MVA) product, to an Airborne Visual Analytics (AVIAN) system for combat search and rescue (CSAR) missions. The AVIAN system uses a gimbaled camera sensor on board an unmanned aircraft to search an area for survivors on land or at sea. Comp ...
