  2. Optically Registered Polarimetric Imaging LWIR Sensor

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A16024

    The Department of the Army has identified long wave infrared (LWIR) polarimetry as a means for enhanced detail of human imagery for facial recognition. In addition, polarimetry has been shown to improve image contrast, detect anthropomorphic objects in high clutter scenes, and provide 3D shape information. However, many polarimeters operate using rotating polarization filters or retarders, which r ...

  4. Mission Command Augmented Reality Technologies to enhance Human User Readiness (MCARTHUR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A16038

    In recent years, Augmented Reality (AR) technologies have supported users in a variety of domains to enable enhanced situation awareness (SA) and improved decision making. To date, however, no AR approaches have been developed to support Mission Command (MC), despite the importance of MC to all Army missions. To apply AR in support of MC, Charles River Analytics proposes to research, define requir ...

  5. Probabilistic Operations Warranted for Energy Reliability Evaluation and Diagnostics (POWERED)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A16048

    Back-up power equipment, such as engine-driven generator systems, undergo performance degradation over time that can prevent them from functioning properly in critical situations. Ensuring the reliability of back-up power systems during power outages not only allows for the continuation of normal operations, but also can mitigate potential threats to national security. Improved diagnostic and prog ...

  6. Parachute Olefin-polysulfone Obfuscating Film (POOF)

    SBC: MORSECORP, Inc            Topic: A16060

    MORSE Corp proposes to develop the Parachute Olefin-polysulfone Obfuscating Film (POOF) airdrop concept. POOF consists of a canopy constructed of transparent olefin polysulfone films that depolymerize into a benign gas when raised above a tunable transition temperature. The films depolymerization will be triggered by Joule heating, with a secondary transience mechanism utilizing free radical gener ...
