  1. Augmenting Fire Fighter Training With Virtual Reality Technology

    SBC: 5, Inc. (full Immersion            Topic: N/A

    Current fire fighting training methods are possibly lacking maximum effectiveness due to increasing safety and environmental regulation. Additionally, performance measurement in large classes becomes difficult unless trainees have identical training scenarios and evaluations. This proposal details the analysis of current training methods and subsequent emulation of them using virtual reality (VR ...

  2. Ground-Penetrating Radar for Minefield Detection and Mapping

    SBC: Aes International Corp            Topic: N/A

    The AES International Corporation (AESI) of College Station, Texas, in concert with Texas A&M University personnel, can build an airborne ground-penetrating radar system to detect land mines from an Unmanned Airborne Vehicle (UAV). The radar itself will be a totally new and fully airworthy flight demonstration unit, the principles and characteristics of which will be conceptually similar to two p ...

  3. Fiber Optic Coupled Infrared Focal Plane Array (FOCIRFPA)

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AMI utilizes a technique known as the "ribbon wind" approach to manufacture infrared fiber image bundles. The ribbon wind approach provides a unique opportunity to manufacture relatively low cost, large format, medium resolution infrared fiberoptic image bundles for industrial, commercial and military applications. Indeed, this approach has been applied successfully by numerous fiberoptic manufa ...

  4. V-LAB: A Virtual Laboratory for Structural Integrity Assissment of Composite Components

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Investigation of failed composite components requires tress analysis to assess their structural integrity. Currently there exist no general-purpose software packages for composite structural analysis that are accessible to failure investigators who are not experts in these types of analysis. The proposed research and development effort will fill this void with a flexible user friendly, PC-based ...

  5. Methodology to Predict Ballistic Penetration and Damage of Composite Laminated Structures

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current utilization of composite materials in air and surface weapons systems and structures is extensive, and the use of these materials can be expected to increase in the future. Weapons effectiveness assessments and the design of protective structures require methodologies to predict the terminal ballistic interactions between projectiles and fragments penetrating composite laminated target st ...

  6. Non-Eroding Fin Materials

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will analyze and select promising materials and designs to be used in the plumes of tactical solid rocket motors for missile steering and control. The emphasis is on high-performance refractory materials and compatibility of material systems. The control fins experience severe thermal and severe particulate erosion environments. Missile controllability requires fins with minimal er ...

  7. ProFEA: A General Purpose Graphically-Based Probabilistic Finite Element Analysis System

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR will develop a general purpose probabilistic finite element analysis system, ProFEA, that allows designers to perform probabilistic finite element analysis in a graphical environment that is completely familiar and similar to modern deterministic FEA. We have developed an innovative architecture that takes advantage of emerging file exchange and database standards (I ...

  9. Embedded Optical Fiber Sensors in Solid Rocket Motor Cases

    SBC: Astro Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This research project will investigate the use of optical-fiber sensors within a solid rocket motor case. THese sensors will be multi-functional and possess the ability to measure displacement (or strain) and temperature. They will be capable of embedment "in-site" or can be bonded to the exterior of motors that have already been manufactured. If successful, the effect of forces exerted on the ...

  10. Artificial Intelligence and Visual Techniques for Course of Action (COA) Development and Analysis

    SBC: AUSTIN INFO SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to establish the technical foundation for, and the feasibility of, a tactical decision aid that can be used by a commander and staff to develop and analyze courses of action (COA). This project will combine object-oriented and distributed computing technologies into an integrated system architecture and design. Successful techniques from artificial intelligence r ...
