Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-021
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:Noise levels of military jet aircraft have significantly increased as the power of the engines has increased creating a community noise issue around military airfields. ?Current noise monitoring requirements only measure sound pressure levels which do not correlate to human annoyance / disturbance. ?Sound Answers plans to apply their ex...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-144
Budget: 10/26/10 - 04/26/11

The proposed approach starts from an investigation of psychophysical stimuli relevant to the detection of a vehicle in an urban environment. Existing simulators will then be evaluated from the standpoint of their capability of high fidelity reproduction of real stimuli and on their ability to handle virtual stimuli (i.e. from virtual vehicles). ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-002
Budget: 02/12/10 - 05/11/12

The US Air Force needs a system to help identifying root-causes of jitter in HEL beam alignment systems. This is of particular interest to the USAF as jitter smears the HEL beam on target, reducing its integrated intensity and therefore its target damage capability. Jitter is caused by several disturbances introduced in the beam alignment system...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-002
Budget: 02/05/09 - 02/05/10

The decomposition of the residual laser beam jitter into its contributions will be achieved with a hybrid approach which will make use of both parametric and model-based approaches. The best method to separate the component of the residual laser beam jitter due to external disturbances from the effect due to internal noise caused, directly or i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-015
Budget: 04/29/08 - 02/28/09

Sound Answers plans to develop a technique that captures the soundscape, i.e. the typical sound of an environment, along with the topographical information of that environment so that a database of sounds and topographies is created to represent different possible environments. Single microphone, binaural head and spherical beamformer recordings...
