SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: AF17AT011
A Battlefield Airman (BA) has one of the most challenging positions in the military. BA personnel are tasked with the dual roles of being warfighters as well as Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) members and Special Operations Weather Technicians often while behind enemy lines. These complex duties require high fidelity training. In some cases, such as pararesc ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF17AT014
The proposed project will develop advanced modeling capabilities for hypersonic flow problems, specifically for predicting aerothermodynamic flow field for estimation of drag, thermal and structural loads, and for surface interactions. A quantum-to-continuum suite of tools that develop molecular relaxation models based on computational chemistry and quasi-classical trajectory (QCT) analysis will b ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
Simultaneous Time-Resolved Gas and Particle Flow Measurements in a Multiphase Blast Using Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Novel Phase Separation TechniquesSBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED Topic: AF17AT020
An experimental method is proposed to enable time-resolved measurements of both gas and particle velocities in explosions containing particles for munitions research. The approach involves novel processing methods for two-dimensional images that allow discrimination of the image content based on particle size. This allows an image containing a poly-dispersed distribution of particles to be decompo ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
A Multiphysics Framework Utilizing Nonlinear Material Models for Predicting Impact of Structural Profile Disruption on High-Velocity Air VehiclesSBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF17AT025
The aerothermal environment for hypersonic flight vehicles is severe and can generate extremely high material temperatures. These high-temperature environments can cause intense localized heating, which may result in local pockets and/or structural instabilities, especially at vehicle leading-edge regions, and may lead to disruptions that affect vehicle performance. The aerothermal environment may ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF17AT027
Persistent tracking of high-value targets is of great interest for reconnaissance and surveillance applications. In recent work, deep neural networks have demonstrated excellent performance on the popular Visual Object Tracking (VOT) challenge; however, these algorithms have not been tested on applications of interest to the Air Force, such as ground vehicle tracking in video recorded from Unmanne ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: EXOANALYTIC SOLUTIONS INC Topic: AF16AT05
ExoAnalytic Solutions, teamed with Texas A&M University and Georgia Institute of Technology, will develop Highly-mobile Autonomous Rapidly Relocatable Integrated Electro-optical Resources (HARRIER) with the goal being to design and demonstrate tracking of resident space objects (RSOs) in near-geosynchronous orbit (GEO) using a rapidly-constructed low-cost ground based electro-optic (EO) sensor wit ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: QUANTUM APPLIED SCIENCE & RESEARCH INC Topic: ST16C003
Modern defense systems place high cognitive demands on warfighters, often taxing the limit of human capabilities and causing operators to suffer Acute Cognitive Strain (ACS), wherein performance deteriorates markedly, leading to a loss of situational awareness and control, and decrements in team cooperativity. ACS leads to physiological changes driven by sympathetic system activation, including i ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
SBC: Cognionics, Inc. Topic: ST16C003
This STTR project aims to assess the feasibility of using laryngeal EMG to detect operator workload and strain. Phase I will develop a wearable neckband device positioning an array of laryngeal EMG electrodes plus additional sensors for measuring masseter EMG, heart rate variability, GSR and estimated relative blood pressure. The neckband will be optimized to be both wearable, comfortable and resi ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc. Topic: ST16C003
We propose to investigate, in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center and Altec, Inc., the application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience o ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic LoadsSBC: KARAGOZIAN & CASE, INC. Topic: MDA16T003
Karagozian & Case, Inc. (K&C) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) will develop a re-usable, cost-effective, and accurate dynamic characterization methodology capable of measuring the dynamic material properties of various materials of interest under very high strain rates. Materials property data for various ductile materials (e.g., steel and aluminum) are required as input to f ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
