9 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-141
Budget: 12/18/09 - 09/20/10

The objective of this project is to design and demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative physical layer enhanced information fusion approach for real-time detection of air-to-air and ground-to-air spoofed ADS-B reports. The main components of our innovative system include: (1) physical layer based ADS-B spoofing detection; (2) onboard sensors...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-135
Budget: 10/28/08 - 10/28/10

A set of vocoder translation methods will be developed for use in voice communications applications where different vocoder algorithms are being used across the application. The translation methods will provide reduced complexity and increased performance from that of digital tandem approach. The translations will address system configurations i...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Pennsylvania State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T031
Budget: 06/23/08 - 04/24/09

ARCON Corporation, in collaboration with The Pennsylvania State University Applied Research Laboratory, proposes to develop a genetic algorithm (GA) that places multiple antennas and/or arrays on a platform in order to optimize the radiation pattern objectives and spectrum co-utilization. We will investigate the application of different types o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-135
Budget: 09/30/07 - 06/01/08

The proposed study considers the translation between speech vocoders of both wave form and parametric types. Transcoding and tandem methods of translation are proposed for the various codec pairs. The special case of multi-user conferencing scenarious with a variety of different codecs is considered. A methodology for the translation between dif...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Topic: DTRA99-016
Budget: 05/13/99 - 12/13/99

We describe a new approach for identification and location of buried non-metallic mines from backscatter data from a wide-footprint microwave source. A method based on the Feynman diagram model is described that permits discrimination between multiply scattered field data and data arising fro discrete scatterers such as mines. The limited back...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-070
Budget: 02/26/99 - 08/26/99

This research presents the development and performance analysis of space-time adaptive processing(STAP) algorithms for circular array radars. The algorithms developed here result in reduced training data support and computational requirements utilizing a priori information regarding the structure underlying the interference. Because these algori...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-279
Budget: 04/14/98 - 01/14/99

ARCON Corporation proposes a number of cost-effective improvements for measuring low RCS targets on the USAF RATSCAT RCS measurement ranges. These improvements include hardware modifications and intelligent adaptive software to improve measurement accuracy while controlling costs by keeping most of the present reflector systems. Specifically, w...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF94-066
Budget: 10/02/95 - 10/02/97

Computer programs for electromagnetic analysis belong to a large class of simulation programs that were developed to model physical systems. Significant improvement in the overall utility of electromagnetic analysis and other physical simulation programs can be achieved with the application of modern graphics and visualization techniques. We h...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF94-066
Budget: 05/31/94 - 11/30/94

The use of advanced computer-aided design (CAD software in conjunction with graphics workstation hardware can significantly enhance the utility of computer programs written to perform analysis of electromagnetic (EM) problems, Many of these EM analysis codes predate the development and general availability of graphics workstations and visualiza...
