Environmentally-Compliant Kinetic Metallization Coating Materials for Corrosion and Wear Protection of Military Aircraft and Weapon SystemsSBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: AF15AT31
Coating materials and coating methods used to protect U.S. military aircraft and weapon systems from corrosion and wear are in need of environmentally benign alternatives in order to keep up with dynamic regulations associated with environment, safety, and occupational health. Thus, the Air Force is supporting research to develop alternatives to the dangerous materials identified on the OSD Emergi ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SPECTRAL MOLECULAR IMAGING, INC. Topic: AF15AT12
Liquid Crystal Arrayed Microcavities (LCAM) are a new hyperspectral technology initiated by collaboration among Spectral Molecular Imaging, Advanced Microcavity Sensors and Montana State University Spectrum Laboratory.At the core of this revolutionary technology lie picoliter volume optical cavities that exploit liquid crystal birefringence for tuning an effective cavity length.During a Phase I on ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TIER 1 PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS LLC Topic: AF15AT14
Our Phase I work focused on improving modeling and simulations so that the impact of autonomous systems in the battlespace could be better understood. As we have trained our attention on Phase II, it has become increasingly clear that the work we are doing to improve the modeling and simulation of autonomous systems also provides significant leverage for the development of the intelligent behavior ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MINERVA SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF15AT17
Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT34
Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are increasingly seen as a cornerstone in developing the future Defense infrastructure and it is critical that they collaborate efficiently and execute complex missions in denied environments. Although great progress has been made in GPS-denied navigation, the target handoff problem in GPS-denied environments has not been extensively studied. In this problem, a trac ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
Small Sample Size Semi-Supervised Feature Clustering for Detection and Classification of Objects and Activities in Still and Motion Multi-spectral ImagerySBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT35
Toyon Research Corp. and the Penn State Univ. propose research and development of innovative algorithms for classifying objects and activities observed in high-dimensional data extracted from multi-sensor motion imagery. The proposed algorithms include novel feature clustering techniques to enable effective characterization of intra-class and inter-class appearance variations in datasets containin ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: N15AT008
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Ocean Bay Information and Systems Management, LLC Topic: DLA15C001
Inspecting for and detecting counterfeit, unapproved material substitutions or substandard processed raw material using existing processes is difficult, time consuming and expensive.Ocean Bay, LLC and the Primary Investigator, Karen Bruer, formed a team consisting of Ocean Bay, LLC, Savanah River National Laboratory and Old Dominion University, to apply for DLA15C-001:Detecting Substandard, Noncon ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Logistics Agency
SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC Topic: A17AT007
LongWave Photonics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Virginia Diodes are proposing the use of the Terahertz Quantum-Cascade Lasers (QCL) combined with a Schottky diode detector for high dynamic range heterodyne imaging. Two single-mode, distributed feedback (DFB) QCLs with milliwatt power levels will be used as local oscillator and illumination for imaging. The QCLs will be downconverte ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: Alcatera Inc. Topic: A17AT008
Near-Field Scanning Microwave Microscopy (SMM) is a technique relying on a raster scan of a microwave probe across a sample surface, while measuring its reflected microwave signal. The existing technologies are limited to the surface analysis, and are not compatible with liquid environment. These limitations are addressed by the proposed wideband 3D tomography SMM with sub-surface analysis capabil ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseArmy
