  1. Aircraft & Cruise Missile Mission and Route Planning Using Real-Time Pattern Matching Techniques

    SBC: Intelligent Reasoning Systems (IRS)            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal we present a novel approach to aircraft and missile mission and route planning using neural networks. The approach is unique in four aspects: l) it is a proactive planner that looks at the global topographic characteristics of the battlefield environment when generating plans; 2) it uses a cost surface to determine the advantages or disadvantages of moving through an area by integ ...

  2. Resolution and Motion-Detection Enhancement Using an Oscillating Saccadi Perception System

    SBC: Intelligent Reasoning Systems (IRS)            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Reasoning Systems (IRS) is developing an integrated active vision system (AVS) based on design principles derived from experimental analysis of mammalian visual systems. The AVS design is based on a asynchronous analog encoding of location and motion data, and a custom VLSI Hybrid Temporal Processing Element (HTPE) develped by and available soley to IRS (patent pending). The HPTE can o ...

  3. Image Processing Using Temporal Cellular Neural Networks

    SBC: Intelligent Reasoning Systems (IRS)            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the development of a compact, high-speed camera system that integrates a Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) solid-state imager and a Temporal Cellular Neural Network (TCNN) (using three-dimensional TC technology) to provide real-time image processing capability for scientific and engineering applications. The integrated CCD/TCNN camera provides high-speed image collection and proc ...

  4. Ultraspectral Imager

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR demonstrates the underlying technology required to construct an ultraspectral imager that has the ability to spectrally resolve molecular absorption lines while simultaneously creating a two dimensional spatial mapping. The proposed instrument will have a spectral resolution that is better than 2 cm-1 and two dimensional spatial resolution that exceeds 2 milliradian. Based on Fou ...

  6. A FUEL/AIR DRIVE FLUX COMPRESSOR POWER UNIT FOR ELECTROTHERMAL GUNS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The Ktech Team proposes a feasibility study of a fuel/air driven flux compression power unit (FCPU) for electric guns. Through variations of inductance gradients and through changes in scale, the proposed technology will be applicable to both electrothermal/chemical and electromagnetic guns. In the Phase 1 effort, we develop simulation models to predict the performance of the flux compression po ...

  7. INFRARED DIODE LASER PUMPED INTEGRATED VISIBLE DYE-DOPED POLYMER WAVEGUIDE LASERS

    SBC: Laser-matter Interaction Labor            Topic: N/A

    Several dye-doped polymer waveguides are selected based on a new integrated infrared to visible upconversion scheme. Visible upconversion particularly at blue, green and red wavelengths will be searched in these materials. Thin films of these materials will be spin coated and a simple laser polymerization process will be used to fabricate waveguides with low linear optical loss. Nonlinear optical ...

  8. Multidisciplinary Workstation for Small Aircraft Optimization for FAA Certification

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will focus on integrating Managment Sciences, Inc., safety and risk assurance tools with the USAF Flight Dynamics Directorate Automeated STRuctural Optimization System (ASTROS) tool. This SBIR proposes to use the ASTROS tool with additional application software to completely develop a flight safety analysis toolset for small aircraft certification. ASTROS is a comprehesive self ...

  9. System Engineer Toolset for Fault Tolerant Design

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR will explore and develop new automated methods for dynamic fault tolerance in defense electronic systems. The research will investigate using the software of digital signal processor operating systems to pro-actively map defective operations to remaining processors. In the past, fault tolerance has relied on passive redundancy to extend operating life. With software, a simple re-start ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A HARDNESS ASSURANCE THROUGHPUT OPTIMIZED TESTER

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATED CIRCUIT (IC) PRODUCTION LINES OPERATING UNDER MIL-I-38535 HAVE RADIATION HARNESS ASSURANCE (RHA) AND RELIABILITY DESIGNED AND BUILT INTO THEIR TECHNOLOGY. HARDNESS AND RELIABILITY ARE MAINTAINED BY APPLYING STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROLS (SPCS) TO TEST STRUCTURES FABRICATED ALONGSIDE PRODUCT MICROCIRCUITS. MEASUREMENT AND DATA REDUCTION TECHNIQUES PRESENTLY EMPLOYED ARE SLOW AND COSTLY AN ...
