  1. Field-Deployable Imaging System to Assess Potential Retinal Injuries

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF04T022

    Advanced imaging technologies now exist to detect tissue changes that occur due to retinal laser injuries not discernable with fundus photography. Recent developments at Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the Wellman Laboratories of Photomedicine (MGH/Harvard) have made it possible to combine new technologies into a single, affordable field-deployable device. PSI’s Line-Scanning Laser Ophthalmos ...

  2. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), and its team members, propose to synthesize and characterize a new energetic furoxan oxidizer with high energy and low sensitivity. PSI has teamed with Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Energetic Materials Center and Aerojet Corp., Energetic Materials Group on the proposed program. The targeted furoxan properties include; constant-volume combustion energy ( 9734 J/g), ...

  3. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Idaho Chemistry Department (U. Id.) propose to synthesize and characterize new solid propellant ingredients. The materials will contain very high nitrogen content within the chemical structure, thereby ensuring a large energy release. Energy densities from these ionic salt propellant ingredients will be higher than those obtained from purely coval ...

  4. Molecular Filtered Electronic Resonance Enhanced NO Raman Scattering

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: AF05T012

    Research Support Instruments and the Applied Physics Group of the MAE Department of Princeton University are partnering to develop a unique laser diagnostic technique based on electronic resonance enhanced Raman scattering. This technique will allow for quantitative measurements of nitric oxide (NO) concentrations in a high temperature, high-pressure environment such as may be found in modern engi ...

  5. In-Building Acoustic Signature Identification and Localization

    SBC: ACENTECH INCORPORATED            Topic: A05T025

    Knowing the kind(s) of machinery and equipment contained in a building and its location prior to having to enter the building is a valuable asset to military operations, particularly in urban situations. The proposed system, called BIMLI (Building Interrogation and Machinery Location and Identification), will consist of a sensor suite, a structural modeling capability, and a data analysis segment ...

  6. Pilot-Directed Computer-Assisted Helicopter Formation Flying

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A05T011

    Scientific Systems Company Inc. (SSCI) and University of California, Berkeley (UCB) jointly propose to develop and implement computer-aided Autonomous Formation Flying Control Technology (AFF-CT) for heterogeneous formations of manned helicopters. One of the objectives of the project is to design a control architecture and corresponding control algorithms that are ...

  7. Application of Cortical Processing Theory to Acoustical Analysis

    SBC: Sensimetrics Corporation            Topic: AF03T006

    The goal of this STTR program is to formulate a template-matching operation, with perception-related rules of integration over time and frequency at its core, in the context of human perception of degraded speech. In Phase I we focused on implementing signal processing principles realized by the auditory periphery in providing the observed graceful degradation of human performance in noise, a prer ...

  8. Speech Synthesis for Distance Cueing in Audio Displays

    SBC: Sensimetrics Corporation            Topic: AF05T002

    The work proposed in this Phase I STTR project is aimed at developing (1) a rules-based approach for manipulating the vocal effort of a speech synthesizer suitable for text-to-speech synthesis, and (2) a non-real-time signal processing algorithm for modifying the apparent vocal effort of an arbitrary speech signal. These two technical objectives will be achieved by (1) collecting a corpus of real ...

  9. Infrared Derivative Spectroscopy for Open Path Sensing

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A05T021

    There is a long-standing military, homeland security and industry need for compact, portable sensors to remotely detect, identify and quantify chemical and biological warfare agents and other hazardous species at significant standoff ranges. Current LWIR Fourier transform spectrometers are mechanically complex and sensitive, and susceptible to interference from atmospheric background fluctuations ...

  10. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF05T010

    A core component of aerospace manufacturing is based on cutting-edge materials used in extreme environments. Chemical kinetics models are vital for interpreting experimental measurements and predicting the behavior of these complex systems. For many applications, the reaction rates for all required chemical processes are unknown. We propose a versatile user-friendly computational package for ca ...
