  1. Environmental Effects of Tungsten and Tantalum Alloys

    SBC: Gcx            Topic: N/A

    This is a proposal to investigate the environmental implications of the use of alloys of tungsten/tantalum with other metals (e.g. cobalt) in warhead/penetrator designs. The primary objectives are to (1) investigate and characterize the alloys of interest to the DOD so that potential environmental source terms can be defined and (2) identify the potential short-term and long-term environmental im ...

  2. Omnidirectional Airblast Pressure Senor

    SBC: Gre, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will demonstrate the feasibility of a new type of airblast pressure sensor which will provide valid overpressure histories for airblast waves travelling in directions up to 90 degrees or more to the direction with which the sensor is aligned. Our specific technical objectives for Phase I are: 1) to develop a quantitative sensor design for assessment of feasibility, 2) to predict the expected p ...

  3. Enhancement of Visualization of Circuit Card Electromagnetic Fields

    SBC: Hewitt & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Clearly the purpose of this proposal is to provide a vehicle for scoping and identifying the parameters for eventual provision of an EM visualization technique to assess (inspect) a volume of printed circuit cards in operation. An enhanced starting point for the effort, using a commercial EM visualization device, EMSCAN, is envisioned. The device is essentially non-inasive (does not significantly ...

  5. Investigation of a Low-Cost Ratioing Receiver for Illumination Testing of Aircraft

    SBC: Intelligent Microwave Systems            Topic: N/A

    Electromagnetic illumination testing of aircraft has been used for many years to identify vulnerabilities to electromagnetic sources. Recently, a new hardware concept was developed which promises to greatly increase the dynamic range of the measurements made during illumination. This new system also promises a reduction in noise, size and costs. This concept, named the dual channel down converte ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
