  1. Strategic Monitoring of Spacecraft Mechanical Parts Assemblies

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04T022

    Bearing failure in satellite applications is related to lubricant starvation rather than fatigue, and health monitoring systems for these applications must be able to observe subtle changes related to lubrication state. Phase I included an experimental study to identify candidate monitoring approaches, and the data collected confirmed that cage motion characteristics and instability are highly sen ...

  2. Joint Visualization Module (JVM) for Enhanced Human-Computer Capabilities (Human-Computer Visualization)

    SBC: SDS INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: A04T002

    Training visualization skills can be difficult and inefficient in either the real world with natural representations or in a classroom with analog representations for several reasons. Field training requires physical relocation of trainees and is constrained by the nature of terrain and logistics available at the physical sites. Similarly, analog methods are often restricted to inflexible pictoria ...

  3. Field Marshall Simulation Environment

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04T006

    High power microwave researchers need multiple, low cost, simulation codes. These codes need to have user interface consistency for common functions and to use the research community’s vocabulary and units in specific technical areas. Access to source code is of enormous benefit to research groups but not possible within the present technical software market. Along with these “usability” iss ...

  4. A Metabolomic Framework in Predicting Optimal Fitness and Performance

    SBC: NUVERA BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: A04T020

    The objective of Phase II is prospective studies on healthy subjects to develop a predictor describing fitness states. The Phase I demonstration of metabolomic spectra to discriminate different levels of exercise response provides a solid foundation. We will combine the clinical expertise at Tufts University’s Human Nutrition Research Center with Nuvera’s computational research capability. ...

  5. Biologically Inspired Acoustic Source Localization System

    SBC: Ausim, Inc.            Topic: A04T013

    This proposal is to develop the acoustic source detection and localization algorithms identified as optimal in Phase I into a wearable prototype that integrates a networked sensor array, digital audio processing, position and orientation tracking of the wearer, and aural/visual displays of the detected sounds. Advantages of our approach over competing algorithms include noise tolerance, power eff ...

  6. Combustion-Based Actuator for Flow Control in Transonic Flight Applications

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF03T014

    Combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) is a flow control technology developed at Georgia Tech which utilizes a miniature combustion chamber (cubic centimeter scale) to produce high-speed pulsed jets suitable for aerodynamic flow control (separation control, drag reduction, shock control, etc.) at transonic or supersonic speeds. The system is lightweight, can be operated with passive fluidic valve ...

  7. Wearable Electrophysiologic Sensor Suite for Detection of Neurotoxic Effects

    SBC: Quantum Applied Science And Research, Inc.            Topic: ARMY03T17

    The human nervous system responds to stressors such as neurotoxic effects, cognitive overload, or sleep deprivation with measurable physiologic responses. These responses offer the possibility of forewarning of an impending change in the individual’s cognitive performance to avoid a loss of tactical effectiveness, a capability that the DoD currently lacks. The focus of this program is develop ...

  8. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: HEXAGON INTERACTIVE, INC.            Topic: AF03T022

    The development of adaptive AI technology is vital to the creation of simulation technology with predictive capabilities. The objective of this research project is to deliver an adaptive AI-based simulation technology with predictive capabilities that will enable a family of operational-level tools and simulations that can propose and assess realistic and emergent adversarial behavior, automate th ...

  9. Multispectral Nanoantenna Infrared Sensors

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA04T015

    This 18 months STTR Phase II proposal is based on work completed under the STTR Phase I grant entitled “Multispectral Nanoantenna Infrared Sensors” (Contract No. N00178-04-C-3110). In this Phase II project, we propose the development of multispectral MWIR and LWIR nanoantennas and their integration with an ultra-high speed Cellular Visual Microprocessor operating at 10,000 frames per second. U ...

  10. Compact Induced Current Hall Thruster

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF03T016

    This Phase II STTR program is proposed to investigate a new kind of electric thruster, an inductively-driven Hall thruster. In contrast to conventional Hall thrusters, this device has the big advantage of needing no cathode. We expect it to be more efficient, because the inefficiencies from electrode voltage drops have been eliminated, and it can also be smaller, because the cathode that cannot ...
