  1. Air Combat Tactics Optimization Using Genetic Algorithms (ACTOGA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to investigate the feasibility of using stochastic genetic algorithms (GAs) for the development and optimization of air combat tactics for large MvN engagements. Stochastic GAs, which encode each optimizing parameter as a Gaussian region rather than a fixed value, offer several benefits over conventional GAs when the problem under study contains a large number of parameters, as is the ...

  2. Intelligent Fusion and Asset Management Processor

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The management and dissemination of Inboard and offboard information and the associated situation assessment of the tactical picture and determination of the associated response is a major task for Air Force personnel. Significant effort has been made in countering this challenge with advances in sensor capabilities. enhancements in onboard avionics, and combined intra and inter service command, c ...

  3. AVID: Agent for Visualization and Intelligent Decision-Aiding

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a robust, adaptive Agent for visualization and Intelligent Decision-aiding (AVID). The AVID architecture consists off four modules, one each for: decision-aiding, visualization, profile adjustments, and communication and coordination. the structure of the key decision-aiding and visualization modules closely matches a unified cognitive theory, so as to provide assistance at ...

  4. TACTICS: Toolset for Acquiring Critical Tactical Information from C4I Systems

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The growing digitization of the battlefield gives the commander an opportunity to access large amounts of information, but only a portion of this may be important at any one time in answering his Priority Intelligence Requirements (PIRs). PIRs are critical to the commander for making tactical decisions to accomplish the mission and each PIR necessitates identifying relevant tactical information f ...

  5. ILIA: Intelligent and Learning Interface Agent

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to deploy our commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology Learn Sesame to develop a generic Intelligent and Learning Interface Agent (ILIA) to empower application developers to design interfaces that adapt themselves to the habits and preferences of users through learning. The agent interprets sequences of events that are generated from user interactions and then produces facts that rep ...

  6. Situation Assessment-Based Search Agent

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and prototype a search agent for smart munitions that exploits multiple information sources to aid an automatic target recognition (ATR) system's target acquisition capability. Smart munitions that rely on preprogrammed search paths (the weapon's flight path over the search area) ignore the dynamic nature of a battleground and fail to exploit important information that can b ...

  7. Residual Life Indicator Based on Dye Desorption

    SBC: CHEMMOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a novel type of Residual Life Indicator (RLI) for determining the remaining capacity after prolonged storage of Chemical Protective Garments (CPC). These garments, which are designed for use by troops at risk of exposure to chemical weapons, can be stored for long periods of time in sealed bags. However. if a bag leaks or is punctured, common air pollutants like fuel vapors and p ...

  8. Predictive Activity Based Cost Modeling Agent Network

    SBC: COGNITION CORP.            Topic: N/A

    An Activity-Based Costing (ABC) model utilizing autonomous agents will be developed to predict costs of machined airframe components. This model will build upon experience gained from development of an existing ABC subsystem under development at Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Systems Company and will be integrated into Cognition Corporation's expert system-based product, Cost Advantage. We will: ...

  9. Multipurpose WDM Routin

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CoreTek Inc. proposes a novel semiconductor-optical-amplifier (SOA) based four-port device that can be used as a wavelength converter, data regenerator, ATM header recognition system, and high-speed bit-error rate tester. These functions are presently performed electronically at low speed and require converting the optical data to an electrical signal. Our device is a novel hybrid of LiNbO3 Mach-Z ...

  10. Tunable Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers for 1550 nm

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Development of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers for 1550nm communication applications has been hindered by the lack of high quality Bragg mirrors. Efforts for growing high quality InGaAsP/InP, SbGaAsAI/InGaAsP as well as wafer-bonding with GaAs/AIOx mirrors are on-going but significant breakthroughs in material quality and yield are needed before devices are produced. In addressing this ch ...
