SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT34
ABSTRACT: Over the past decade, there has been a sustained interest in Global Positioning System (GPS) denied navigation technologies for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). This has been primarily due to the well accepted susceptibility of GPS signals to intentional jamming or unintentional interference and blockage. One of the challenging problems in GPS-denied navigation is handing off moving targ ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Luminit LLC Topic: AF14AT05
ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for a nondestructive evaluation technique applicable to energetic composites with low density gradients, Luminit, LLC, and Southern Illinois University Intelligent Measurement and Evaluation Laboratory propose to develop a new Compression Imaging Phase Array Ultrasound Interrogator (CIPHOR) system based on phased array higher frequency ultrasonic imaging. ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: BOSTON FUSION CORP Topic: AF16AT29
Automatic target recognition (ATR)the identification of a potential target based on signatures in sensor datais fundamentally a question of information content. While ATR has been studied for decades, it remains a challenge because multifarious tar...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: AF17BT002
Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: KickView Corporation Topic: AF16AT12
Improving feature extraction, event detection, and target classification in multi-sensor systems requires new mathematical methods and processing techniques. In addition, previous research and experience suggests that leveraging sensor data that has not experienced significant dimensionality reduction can preserve subtle features when processed jointly with other relevant data. However, traditiona ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: FUSE INTEGRATION, INC. Topic: AF17BT003
Currently networks are not taking advantage of the inherent benefits of high multi-beam directional networking. For example, the current MADL implementation simply daisy chains the nodes in the network creating multiple single points of network failure (of course retaining self-healing properties.) The Fuse Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution (DCLNS) optimized architecture features a robus ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC. Topic: AF14AT26
ABSTRACT: This effort is a close collaboration between RMD and Alfred University. Our goal is to develop a process for producing optical ceramics with properties approaching or exceeding single crystals. Ceramic processing can provide enhanced performance, lower cost, higher yield, relaxed constraints on size and shape, and materials that are difficult or impossible to grow as crystals. We will ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT26
ABSTRACT: FIRST RF has teamed with University Research Foundation (URF) and Radiometrics Corporation to develop a passive radiometer-based geolocation system for use with a wide variety of USAF platforms. The system will be comprised of a ruggedized, near-COTS radiometer system by Radiometrics Corporation, augmented with a robust 2-D scanning beamsteering antenna by FIRST RF Corporation and enhanc ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Carbonics, Inc. Topic: AF15AT15
ABSTRACT: This Phase I STTR project aims to develop a silicon friendly carbon nanotube field effect transistor platform technology with reduced contact resistance and wafer-scale aligned carbon nanotubes towards development of an L-band amplifier. Key innovation nuggets that will be developed include: 1) a wafer scalable process to deposit dense aligned arrays of high purity semiconducting and len ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NUTRONICS, INC. Topic: AF18AT008
Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop an approach for non-linear control of hysteresis and incorporate (if necessary) integrated Multi-Input-Multi-Output real time control with this capability.Our control systems already include a proven high speed real time control approach to determine the optimal set of actuator commands that satisfy inter-actuator stroke limitations.O ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
