  1. Game-Theoretic Space Situational Analysis Toolbox (GaTSSAT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: By considering multiple space-based teams of cooperative and/or uncooperative players with varying orbital geometries and defense/offense capabilities such as sporadic observations, jamming confrontations, and sparse communications, the main challenges in derivation of effective decisions for autonomous space systems are: (a) development of effective game models and game training algori ...

  2. Development of an Innovative System for Cryodeposit Mitigation and Redmediation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) propose to develop an innovative system to measure and control the cryodeposit layer thickness that develops on cold surfaces in cryogenic radiometric calibration chambers. The system includes: 1) an in-situ, interferometric-based instrument to monitor the cryodeposit layer thickness, 2) a mitigation sy ...

  4. Random Number Generation for High Performance Computing

    SBC: Silicon Informatics, Inc.            Topic: A10aT012

    A parallel random number generation suite that generates, dynamically, millions of parallel pseduorandom number streams suitable for consumption by high performance computing (HPC) applications on various platforms will be implemented, tested, and provided to Government, academic and private HPC users for their evaluation and use. The software will be tuned for scalability, repeatability and effic ...

  5. Rapid Ethnographic Assessment and Data management Integration Toolkit (READ-IT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT011

    Socio-cultural factors are increasingly being recognized as critical to effective military operations. Therefore, collection and analysis of socio-cultural data is required to provide Warfighters with a comprehensive understanding of their operational environment. Warfighters need tools that enable the capture, management, and rapid analysis of socio-cultural data from heterogeneous sources (e.g., ...

  6. Real-Time Non-Contact Detection of Surface Contamination

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A11aT028

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its academic partner, the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), will continue to advance the capability of RIT"s DIRSIG hyperspectral scene simulation software to enable accurate prediction of LWIR reflectance characteristics of liquid-contaminated surfaces. DIRSIG reflectance model and software modifications will be implemented by RIT. In conjunction with RIT ...

  7. High Voltage, Lightweight, Conformal, Integrated, Photovoltaic Modules for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: MC10 Inc.            Topic: N10BT048

    This Phase II effort will establish stretchable photovoltaic modules that achieve the key metrics of the program: modules with efficiencies > 10%, that sustain elastic deformations > 10% (with little or no loss in performance), and that produce output voltages > 25 V. In this Phase II effort will we demonstrate functional modules deployed on the airfoil of micro unmanned aerial vehicles (MAVs). To ...

  8. Improved Fusion of Sensor Array Data for Tactical RF Emitter Geolocation

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N11AT012

    The predominant method used in electronic support measure (ESM) systems to detect and geolocate noncooperative RF emitters employs arrays of antennas to estimate signal angle of arrival (AOA). There are several issues that preclude wide installation and use of these for emitter geolocation. One issue is accuracy. There are various error sources, including signal noise, multipath effects, and ambig ...

  9. Low cost acoustic transmitter

    SBC: IMAGE ACOUSTICS INC            Topic: N11AT026

    This STTR Phase II Proposal addresses the need for a low cost acoustic transmitter that combines a power amplifier, control-circuitry and an innovative transducer assembly, all at a low cost. Our approach is to use a cylindrical modal vector projector transducer which becomes part of the housing and, moreover, uses only a minimum of power to provide a sizable source level. The modal vector project ...

  10. Electrospinning of Polymer Nanofibers for Continuous CNT Production

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12aT026

    The Army desires carbon nanotube (CNT) based fibers with exceptional strength and stiffness to provide high performance composite materials. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has demonstrated a method to fabricate continuous CNT from electrospun polymer nanofibers. Because these CNT are continuous, their mechanical strength is limited primarily to their defect population. During a Phase I program PSI w ...
