Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T002
Budget: 09/21/16 - 09/20/17
PI: Dan Hahs

It has recently been mathematically proven that optimal communication systems necessarily have chaotic waveforms. Perhaps surprisingly, any communication system that utilizes a simple linear matched filter to achieve optimal detection of a signal, received by way of a noisy channel, must transmit a chaotic waveform. Using the concept of exactl...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-085
Budget: 09/16/16 - 09/15/17

Torch proposes the enhancement of a holistic, efficient, high fidelity approach for development of terrain models suitable for use in high fidelity EO/IR rendering applications and simulations. Torch will decrease development complexity and timelines through the generation of efficient characterization algorithms, artifact rectification algorit...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-008
Budget: 09/07/16 - 02/07/17

The development of vehicle thermal signatures for modeling and simulation efforts of missile-borne sever development has traditionally been a complex and time-consuming process. Additionally, scene-rendering technologies used in these missile-based performance assessments have traditionally treated these vehicles as rigid models, both thermally...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA15-T002
Budget: 04/25/16 - 11/24/16

Control Theory tools and processes for analyzing the interactions of complex System of Systems (SoS) are lacking, specifically when sub-systems are independently designed and/or higher levels of SoS controls are applied. Integrating these sub-systems into the SoS, can result in dynamic interactions between these sub-systems and the SoS controls ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Colorado- Colorado Springs

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: MDA15-T002

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T002
Budget: 12/17/15 - 12/17/17
PI: Dan Hahs

Random numbers are essential for a growing number of modern applications. As computer speed and communications bandwidth have increased the potential for practical streaming cipher and large-scale Monte Carlo simulations have become technologically feasible. For these and other applications, ultrafast random number generators are essential. This...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Sandia National Laboratories

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-T002
Budget: 08/31/15 - 08/30/17

Leveraging the results of our Phase I work, the Torch Team proposes to execute laboratory-based experiments to elucidate fundamental micro-debris formation mechanisms to improve optical modeling of impacts. Optical signatures from impacts collected over the last decade have identified definitive micro-debris parameter trends. However, current ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-006
Budget: 08/26/15 - 02/26/16

Current grid-based topographic products are not capable of representing near-vertical surfaces in the terrain such as ditches and washes to the fidelity required by modern scene based flight simulations. Torch proposes the development of a simple, efficient approach for the design of a toolset capable of identifying and generating high-fidelity ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-005
Budget: 08/12/15 - 02/11/16

Leveraging our extensive experience in Hardware-in-the-loop, Signal Injection, and All Digital Sim-ulations, the Torch Team proposes developing an innovative approach for assessing and estimating the target and background simulation scene fidelity requirements of smart munitions. The Torch Team will define metrics and an analysis processes which...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.08
Budget: 07/17/15 - 12/17/15

In response to the NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program 2015 Phase I Solicitation S3.08: Slow and Fast Light, Torch Technologies in partnership with Ducommun Miltec proposes polarization-coupled fast-light optical gyroscope (FLOG) technologies to enhance the gyro sensitivity which would lead to an increase in the precision of i...
