  1. High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Bone Conduction Communication Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T033

    Warfighters increasingly rely on radio communication equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. Current military communication gear involves headphones and acoustic microphones. Unfortunately, headphones cover the ears and deteriorate detection and localization of ambient sounds that may be important for tactical situations. An alternative to air conduction is bo ...

  2. Rapid Evaluation and Analysis of Communication in Teams (REACT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF06T027

    In a Net Centric Battlespace, information is constantly shared along both formal and informal channels. Informal means of communication such as chat rooms are often employed when standard channels of communication do not fit the emergent work practice of a group. Despite its inefficiency, this unstructured communication is very natural and convenient for users. As such, it is a rich and plentiful ...

  3. Integrated Fusion and Routing System (IFRS) for UAV ISR

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T021

    As the quantity of available ISR sensor platforms increases, efficient cooperative routing of ISR assets for successful data collection becomes more difficult to coordinate. Additionally, the volume of information collected precludes comprehensive and timely human analysis. Automated routing algorithms and multi-source data fusion technologies are necessary to achieve decision superiority by explo ...

  4. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  5. Quantitative Model of Human Dynamic Attention Allocation

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF06T003

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a quantitative dynamical model of human attention and perception. Recent experimental findings have demonstrated the importance of event timing for perceiving and attending to complex sequences of events: 1) The auditory system uses active temporal mechanisms for analysis of sound from the earliest stages of sensation through the ...

  6. Quantitative Model of Human Dynamic Attention and Perception

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF06T003

    The development of tractable mathematical models of gradient-frequency nonlinear resonator networks is critical to advanced computer applications that require faithful computer simulation of human attention and/or perception. Conventional linear resonator models are computationally and analytically tractable, however tractability is achieved at the expense of capturing many significant features of ...

  7. Software System Reliability Analysis

    SBC: COGNITIVE CONCEPTS            Topic: OSD06SP4

    Establishing the reliability of embedded software-based systems is increasingly important as the DoD's dependency on software grows and the size and complexity of software systems increase. Currently, no theory is in general practice that adequately explains the behavior of software systems reliability in a consistent and repeatable way. Currently, we cannot point to a best practice (although Jo ...

  8. Infrared Fiber for Conversion & Routing

    SBC: COHERENT PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: AF07T037

    We propose to use nano-structured Silicon photonic crystal fiber to convert near infrared (NIR) to Mid infrared using parametric amplification. Silicon has intrinsic properties that lend itself to this application. Silicon has very low loss in the Mid IR, high damage threshold, and high environmental stability. However, NIR pumps experience strong loss in bulk silicon crystal due to two-photon ...

  9. The Dual MOT Atom Chip Miniature Vacuum Cell

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF07T034

    This work studies key issues facing the practical utilization and commercialization of a miniature atom chip vacuum system. The system consists of a two-dimensional magneto-optic trap (MOT) forming a cold atom beam that is recaptured by a 6-beam MOT in an ultrahigh vacuum region of the system. A miniature ion pump and non-evaporable getters sustain the ultrahigh vacuum. The atom chip serves to s ...

  10. Critical Considerations and Technology for Cold Atom Chip Inertial Sensors

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF07T024

    This work seeks to identify and analyze the major performance issues facing chip-based ultracold atom inertial sensors. Such sensors have enormous potential to provide unprecedented inertial sensing precision with competitive size, weight, and power consumption compared with optical and other technologies. Nevertheless, many potential issues affecting design performance are either not well explo ...
