  1. Deep Architecture for Robust OPIR Tracking

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: AF151156

    ABSTRACT:Automated detection and tracking of moving objects in OPIR data is a difficult problem due to low GSD, low contrast, sensor artifacts, and other challenges, and many standard approaches will not produce sufficient result quality. A robust tracking solution, however, is highly desirable to aid analysts in the automated exploitation of OPIR data. Our proposed approach leverages deep learnin ...

  2. Miniaturized parametric inlet bleed module with integrated discretized flow control

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF151188

    ABSTRACT:The interaction of high Mach flows with the aircraft and engine structures generates complex fluid dynamic phenomena that include shock waves, shear layers, vortices, and separated flows, all of which can be further influenced by the thermochemical behavior of the high-temperature air. These fluid phenomena affect high-speed inlet operability and performance, but are not well understood, ...

  5. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Optic Development

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop a fast axis collimating lens for quantum cascade lasers (QCL) which emit in the midwave-infrared (MWIR) range. These lenses must withstand the stress of both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed laser emission. These high laser powers may cause ablation of lens material reducing effectiveness of the optic and leading to failure. Thus, a high damage ...

  6. Multi-Modal Sensor Fusion Utilizing Statistical Dependence and Compressive Sampling

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: Our goal is to develop theoretical frameworks for efficient multisensor fusion of high dimensional data for target detection localization and tracking. We plan to develop novel algorithms based upon our previous research on copula theory to perform inference with multi-modal correlated sensor data. Copulas describes the dependence between random variables and allow one to optimally explo ...

  7. Active Control of Scramjet Isolator Shocks (ACSIS)

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Active control of the shock system in a scramjet engine isolator opens possibilities for enhanced engine performance and reduced engine weight by eliminating excess isolator design margin. A successful system will allow for maximum performance from a given engine configuration and will deliver range and efficiency that exceeds those possible using passive unstart control. Our approach is ...

  9. Biomimetic Material Solutions for the Stabilization of Labile Reagents

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: AF15AT29

    ABSTRACT: A platform (PHA-fuse) for the stabilization of diagnostic and therapeutic reagents will be established based upon the polymer, polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA). Fusions of a target molecule to PHA synthase, the enzyme responsible for PHA synthesis, will be constructed and used to catalyze the synthesis of PHA granules. These PHA granules will help stabilize the fused target molecules and elimi ...
