SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT02
Accurate and timely surveillance of objects in the near-Earth space environment is becoming increasingly critical to US national security. One of the main difficulties in this domain is efficiently and accurately modeling trajectories of the vast number of objects in orbit around the Earth. The orbital trajectory of a single object is typically modeled as a second-order system of equations which ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Modeling Auditory Pattern Recognition and Learning with Gradient Frequency Neural Oscillator NetworksSBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC Topic: AF09BT12
This Small Business Technology Transfer research project addresses the perception and learning of complex sound patterns within complex auditory scenes. The objective is to model auditory signal processing, pattern recognition and learning in the human auditory system. Our novel approach simulates the nonlinear signal processing that has been observed in auditory physiology. By mimicking functiona ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS, INC. Topic: AF09BT13
The present text proposes development of efficient, accurate and rapidly-convergent algorithms for the simulation of propagation and scattering of electromagnetic fields within and around structures that (i) Consist of complex combinations of penetrable materials as well as perfect and imperfect conductors, and, (ii) Possess complex geometrical characteristics, including open surfaces, metallic c ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: JMSI, INC Topic: AF09BT18
The need for faster highly resolved solutions coupled with the advent of General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU) architectures and the development of GPGPU algorithms at the University of California, Davis present an opportunity that JMSI Inc. proposes to leverage by developing algorithmic and software solutions for GPGPUs in “Innovative CFD Algorithms, Libraries & Python Frameworks for ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS, INC. Topic: AF09BT18
We propose algorithm development and efficient GPU implementation of numerical PDE solvers based on four novel high-order methodologies: 1) High-order Discontinuous Galerkin approaches, 2) Fast High-Order boundary integral methods, 3) Convergent FFT-based methodologies for evaluation of computational boundary conditions, and 4) Fourier Continuation methods. These methodologies are applicable to a ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The Topic: AF09BT33
Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT20
Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: HPS Simulations Topic: AF09BT31
Existing computer combat wargames offer a sophisticated and high fidelity base platform for accurately modeling standard combat scenarios. However, the rapid development of UAV capabilities in terms of sizes, weapons, sensors, communications and flight ability is presenting a new challenge for these simulations. At the same time, the general state of world affairs is changing such that the likeli ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NESS ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF09BT14
Recent advances in dielectric and magnetic materials have spurred renewed interest in the field of solid state pulse and RF burst generation using Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL) . The NLTL approach to HPM and UWB generation eliminates the need for an electron beam, vacuum system and magnets required in conventional HPM sources. Furthermore, the novel waveforms of NLTL generated pulses promi ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Apolent Corporation Topic: AF09BT06
We apply the theory of partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) to the design of guidance algorithms for controlling the motion of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with on-board sensors for tracking multiple ground targets. While POMDPs are intractable to optimize exactly, principled approximation methods can be devised based on Bellman’s principle. We introduce a new approximation ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
