  1. HAUL HF COMMAND/DATA LINK FOR BUOYS

    SBC: Defense Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT DATA RECOVERY FROM ASW BUOYS REQUIRES THE PRESENCE OF P-3 AIRCRAFT. ALTERNATIVELY, SOME SATELLITE DATA READOUT CAPABILITY EXISTS, BUT TIDBIT RATE PER SATELLITE PASS IS TOOLOW, AND IT IS NOT REAL TIME. WE PROPOSETHE DEVELOPMENT OF A REAL TIME 2000 MILE HF DATA LINK FOR REMOTE BUOYS. A PRACTICAL HF BUOY LINK MUST USE SHORT NARROWBAND ATENNAS THAT CAN BE TUNED ACROSS THE BAND TO THE OPTIMUM F ...

    SBC: Directed Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEWPOINT CONCEPT UTILIZES CO-ALIGNED HIGH POWER MICROWAVE AND MODERATE POWER LASER DEVICES TO IRRADIATE OPTICAL AND/OR RF RECEIVERS IN THE INCOMING ANTI-SHIP MISSILE. THIS FLEET DEFENSE WEAPON CONCEPT HAS THREE IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS: 1. ABILITY TO PERMANENTLY OR INTERMITTENTLY DEBILITATE THE GUIDANCE/HOMING SUBSYSTEM OF ALL CLASSESOF THREAT ANTI-SHIP MISSILE EXCEPT PURE BALLISTIC NUCLEAR W ...

  3. COVER CONCEALMENT AND DECEPTION (CC&D) PENETRATION ADVANCED TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Lica Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN ENEMY WILL ATTEMPT TO COVER, CONCEAL AND APPLY DECEPTION TO PREVENT DISCOVERY OF HIS CAPABILITIES, ACTIVITIES AND INTENTIONS. THE PROBLEM OF COUNTERING CC&D IS ANALOGOUS TO SEEING THROUGH THE SLEIGHT-OF-HAND TRICKS OF A MAGICIAN. IF ONLY ONE SENSOR WITH ONE PERSPECTIVE IS USED TO OBSERVE AN OBJECT OR ACTION, THE OPTIONS OF A DECEIVER ARE MANY AND SIMPLE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO ANAL ...

  4. INTEGRATED PROCESS FOR LOB CORRELATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF BATTLEFIELD TARGETS

    SBC: Lica Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS AN UNCONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUE FOR CORRELATING LINES OF BEARING OBTAINED FROM INDEPENDENT MEASUREMENTS OF EMITTER CHARACTERISTICS. THE TECHNIQUE WILL EMPLOY SPECIFIC EMITTER IDENTIFICATION IN THE BROADEST SENSE USING ALL INFORMATION WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO CORRELATE LINES OF BEARING: SIGNAL NUANCES, GEOMETRY, FEATURE-EMITTER ASSOCIATIONS, EMITTER-EMITTER ASSOCIATIONS, EMITTERTARG ...

  5. DISTRIBUTED COMBAT INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM

    SBC: Lica Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    COMBAT INTELLIGENCE DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION IS AN ECHELONED, CENTRALIZED PROCESS. WHILE THE OTHER FUNCTIONAL ELEMENTS OF THE ARMY'SCOMMAND AND CONTROL SYSTEM (ACCS) UNDER DEVELOPMENT ARE DISTRIBUTED AND DECENTRALIZED, THE INTELLIGENCE AND ELECTRONIC WARFARE SYSTEM IS STILL CENTRALIZED. THIS PROGRAM ADDRESSES THE CONCEPT OF A DISTRIBUTED, DECENTRALIZED COMBAT INTELLIGENCE DEVELOPMENT AND DISTR ...

  6. METHODOLOGY FOR THE PREDICTION OF SPARE AND REPAIR PART PRICES

    SBC: M. C. Rosen            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD OF PREDICTION IS PROPOSED TO PROVIDE CREDIBLE, TIMELY AND COMPLETE PRICE INFORMATION ON SPARE PARTS AND REPAIR PARTS. THE METHODOLOGY, A NOVEL COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEMS APPROACH, IS ALSO APPLICABLE TO COMPLETE UNIT AND SUBASSEMBLY COST AND PRICE ESTIMATES. TECHNIQUES ARE PROPOSED TO ESTABLISH CRITERIA FOR MINIMUM EXPENDITURESAND REASONABLENESS OF PRICES PRIOR TO CONTRACT AWARD, AS WELL AS ME ...

  7. HUMAN FACTORS EXPERT SYSTEM DESIGN AID FOR MILITARY APPLICATIONS OF ROBOTICS

    SBC: Person-system Integration Ltd            Topic: N/A

    HUMAN FACTORS NEEDS TO BE EMBODIED AS AN "EXPERT SYSTEM" TO BE EFFECTIVELY INTEGRATED WITHIN ROBOTICS APPLICATIONS. THIS PROPOSED EFFORT WILL DESIGN AND DEVELOP AN "EXPERT SYSTEM" TO GUIDE THE APPLICATION OF HUMAN FACTORS IN ROBOTICS. THE EXPERT SYSTEM WILL CONTAIN TWO ELEMENTS: FIRST, A KNOWLEDGE BASE. SECOND, AN "INFERENCEDRIVE." THE KNOWLEDGE BASE WILL BE CONSTRUCTED BY INCORPORATING THE KNOWLE ...

  8. BROADBAND TRACKING ALGORITHM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PARAMETRIC APPROACHES TO TARGET TRACKING ARE STRAIGHTFOWARD AND USUALLY IMPLEMENTED VIA SOME VARIATION OF THE KALMAN FILTER. HOWEVER, A PARAMETRIC APPROACH USES SOME FORM OF A GRADIENT SEARCH ALGORITHM WHICH CAN BECOME LOCKED ONTO EXTRANEOUS OR AMBIGUOUS SOLUTIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE OBJECTIVE FUNCTION IS MULTIMODAL. NOT ONLY CAN A PARAMETRIC APPROACH YIELD ERRONEOUS SOLUTIONS, BUT IT CANNOT ...

  9. HIGH FREQUENCY FREQUENCY SHIFT/PHASE SHIFT PERFORMANCE INVESTIGATION

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH FREQUENCY (HF) COMMUNICATION IS VERY SENSITIVE TO THE TIMEVARYING NATURE OF THE CHANNEL AND CONSEQUENTLY DATA CANNOT BE TRANSMITTED ACROSS THE CHANNEL ERROR FREE. THE CHANNEL IS INHERENTLY LIMITED IN PERFORMANCE SINCE THE CHANNEL USES THE IONOSPHERE TO REFLECT THE TRANSMITTED SIGNAL. THE QUALITY OF THE CHANNEL IS HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON THE WEATHER CONDITIONS, TIME OF DAY, AND OTHER CHANNEL VARIA ...

  10. SLAB OPTICAL FREQUENCY DOUBLER

    SBC: Potomac Synergetics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ARMY HAS A NEED FOR HIGH PEAK POWER/HIGH AVERAGE POWER FREQUENCY DOUBLED, FLASHLAMP PUMPED, Q-SWITCHED ND: YAG L LASERS. THE PRINCIPAL LIMITATION TO THESE DEVICES ARE THE FREQUENCY DOUBLERS. THE SLAB OPTICAL FREQUENCY DOUBLER ( (SOFD) PROGRAM IS THE RESULT OF A CONCEPT WHICH OVERCOMES THE LIMITATIONS OF CONVENTIONAL FREQUENCY DOUBLERS. THE W WORK PERFORMED IN PHASE I OF THE SOFD PROGRAM SHOWS ...
