SBC: Design Interactive, Inc Topic: AF17AT009
Training can now be delivered on a large scale through emerging platforms, but training must be engaging to be effectively utilized. Key to providing training that makes a difference in the field is an understanding of how to induce high levels of engagement during learning and the ability to objectively assess engagement in real-time so that interventions can be tailored during training to optimi ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Cardiac Motion, LLC Topic: AF19AT003
Vital sign, such as respiration rate and heart rate, provide important indications of the physiological and mental conditions of an Airman. Being able to understand the physiological and mental conditions of an operator is therefore of vital importance to improving the efficiency and efficacy of future Air Force operations. Current state-of-the-practice in continuous cardiopulmonary vital sign mon ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: IRFLEX CORP Topic: AF18BT015
Current continuous wave (CW) and pulse mid-wave infrared (MWIR) lasers have design and performance limitations that constrain their usability in some critical Air Force applications. There is an important need to create a new class of MWIR laser sources with less drawbacks and higher pulse energies and CW powers. The proposed work will demonstrate the technical feasibility of an innovative MWIR la ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF18BT004
We will develop hybrid wave propagation approach that implements FFT and EMA (Efficient Matrix Algorithms) propagators in a fashion that is transparent to the user but insures the highest efficiency and accuracy for a given propagation problem. We will develop rules to decide which propagation approach is ideal for a given situation. The propagation algorithms will be coded in Vulkan/CUDA and C++ ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT005
We propose a three-dimensional imaging approach based on digital holography. Our approach is based on frequency diversity using a single chirped pulse instead of a train of pulses with different frequencies. Our approach promises to mitigate most of the issues limiting the performance of current methods and offer additional enabling capabilities that will improve target identification and tracking ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT006
Tau Technologies is teaming with Dr. David Voelz and his research group at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to propose â€œVibration Imaging for the characterization of extended non-cooperative targetsâ€�, which employs dual-pulses in two different variations for vibration imaging in order to characterize non-cooperative targets at extended standoffs. One method is based on double-pulse ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT007
Efficient design, build, and test of an HEL system leverages modeling and simulation (M&S) to reduce cost and increase robustness. Designers use models to explore parameter variations and to estimate performance in conditions which cannot be tested due to physical or financial constraints. This provides significant savings in cost and time. Because live testing is so expensive, it is best used as ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: DYNAMIC SYSTEMS & RESEARCH CORP Topic: AF18AT012
The development and implementation of new damage morphology models for concrete materials is critical to understanding their dynamic behavior during severe shock loading environments. Current constitutive models of conventional strength concretes do not accurately represent the behavioral characteristics of new ultra-high strength concretes because of differences in damage mechanisms during failur ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF18BT004
Wave-optics simulations are critical tools for analysis of laser directed energy systems. The primary method for conducting these simulations is to evaluate the Fresnel diffraction integral using the angular spectrum method based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT). While FFTs are considered computationally efficient, their use in the Fresnel integral results in difficult grid constraints includin ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF19AT005
Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system. Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target. In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction. Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillate ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
