  1. An Integrated Physics-Based Framework for Detecting Precursor to Damage in Naval Structures

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: N10AT042

    Aging aircraft commonly suffers from several types of degradation including fatigue cracking and lack of bonding. It is virtually impossible to predict degradation in structural performance or when a component or structure will fail due to the inability to test new material systems under all loading conditions and under all environmental conditions. A material state awareness system using minimali ...

  2. An Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic with Improved Fracture Toughness and Oxidation Resistance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA09T002

    Hypersonic missile defense systems are being designed to reach global threats. During flight, external surfaces are predicted to reach temperatures in excess of 2200C. As a result, innovative, high performance thermal protection systems (TPS) are of great demand. Among ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC), it is well known that ZrB2- and HfB2-based materials have high melting temperatures and ...

  3. Applications of Computational Command Leadership AI Models (ACCLAIM)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST092002

    A military without good leadership is a mob. Identification, preparation, guidance and mentoring of potential leaders are critical functions across all services. Leadership training and support can be substantially improved by refinement of theories and models on what constitutes good leadership, and what enables individual to be effective leaders. DoD needs better models of how leaders learn, ...

  4. A Unique Focal Plane Array Detector for THz and MM Wave Imaging

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT33

    Detecting explosives and weapons under clothing or in hand carried packages, and imaging terrain and objects through fog and smoke are two high-priority needs that can be met using light in the Terahertz frequency range. However, to image concealed threats, and aid in navigation in fog and smoke, a practical, low cost THz camera is needed. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) in collaboration with Re ...

  5. Automated Video Activity Analysis for Military Operations

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: ST081010

    The increasing use of video in force protection, autonomous vehicles reconnaissance, and surveillance in general has created a great demand for automated analysis and monitoring. It is infeasible to have humans monitoring and analyzing the vast amount of video used in such surveillance, and automated analysis yields hope to ease the burden and increase the amount of information extracted from col ...

  6. Automating the Application of Deception Detection Heuristics to Unstructured Data

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N10AT029

    We propose to construct a deception detection system which will exploit scaffolding provided by a collection of largely domain-independent deception detection heuristics. These heuristics, integrated through a novel evidential reasoning system, will provide the proposed system, called Skeptic, with a significant advantage over purely inductive methods by allowing it to exploit the adversarial natu ...

  7. Autonomous Landing at Unprepared Sites for a Cargo Unmanned Air System

    SBC: Synetics Systems Engineering Corp.            Topic: N10AT039

    A rapid prototyping simulation for the Autonomous Rotorcraft Land & Take-Off (ARLTO) system will be developed to analyze and evolve requirements for the landing and take-off of a Rotary-wing Autonomous Air Vehicle (RAAV) from unprepared terrain. The simulation is based upon the Task-Pilot-Vehicle modeling system and features a UH-60 configured with a Sliding Mode Control (SCM) inner loop closure. ...

  8. Autonomous Landing at Unprepared Sites for a Cargo Unmanned Air System

    SBC: Data Flux Systems Inc.            Topic: N10AT039

    We propose to design, develop, implement, simulate, and demonstrate an autonomous control and sensing system for the safe vertical landing of autonomous aerial cargo delivery system (ACDS). The landing site is expected to be unprepared mountain sides with slopes up to 15 degrees and rough terrain containing rocks and brush. We also plan to reduce the amount of ground equipment required to operate ...

  9. Biojet Fuels from Nonedible Bio-oils and Cellulosic Biomass

    SBC: ENERGIA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N09T034

    The proposed program addresses the emerging needs for the Navy to have cost effective alternative liquid transportation biofuels. The main objectives are to produce bio-jet and bio-diesel fuels from cellulosic biomass and nonedible bio-oils and demonstrate that they have cost structure and product quality comparable to petroleum based fuels. Novel concepts in processing, reactor design and catalys ...

  10. Broadband agile wavelength laser for chemical aerosol detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: A09AT020

    Chemical agents in aerosol form have been identified as a major threat, and there is now interest in applying the long wave infrared frequency agile laser sensor to detection of this important agent form. If successful, it would be possible to perform detection of chemical agent vapors and aerosols and biological aerosol agents with a single dual-use sensor. To accomplish this, it is critical to ...
