Award List:

Fuse Jerk Reduction and Optimum Deceleration from a Compliant Material System

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,732.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Laurence Keefe, President
Abstract:
The potential for structural failures in fuse assemblies on hardened-target penetrators results from both the high decelerations experienced and their short duration. Fuse survivability would be enhanced by lowering the magnitude, and extending the duration, of the deceleration pulse transmitted… More

Fast Algorithms for Imaging Simulation through Turbulence

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$97,142.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Laurence Keefe, President
Abstract:
Current techniques for simulating light propagation through atmospheric turbulence employ Fourier transform methods for calculation of diffraction effects. Although highly accurate, these methods are computationally burdensome, and substantially slow the task of computing extended scenes on a… More

Fuze Jerk Reduction and Optimum Deceleration from a Compliant Material System

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$459,532.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Laurence Keefe, President
Abstract:
Experimental tests in Phase I have shown the fuze shock absorber system capable of reducing shock peaks by a factor of three, and the associated jerk by an order of magnitude. The Phase II work will be devoted to exploring the performance space of this jerk-reduction system as a function of its… More

Fast Algorithms for Imaging Simulation through Turbulence

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$506,147.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Laurence Keefe, President
Abstract:
The Phase I work has shown the technical feasibility of creating new, equivalent-accuracy algorithms for optical simulation with smaller operations counts than existing Fourier methods. These will be helpful in speeding up extended scene imaging simulations used in laser weapons' systems… More

Surface Pattern Generation from Transient Evolution of Undersea Acoustic and Hydrodynamic Impulses

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,909.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Laurence Keefe, President
Research Institution:
University of Illinois at Urbana
RI Contact:
Kathy Young
Abstract:
Pattern generation on the ocean''s surface results from complex interactions of the atmospheric wind above, with the natural and man-made disturbance environment below. Waves are ubiquitous at the surface, and in the upper ocean. While wavetrain analysis is the basis for much of what is known… More

Combining wave effects with radiance transport for IR scene generation

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,001.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Laurence Keefe, President – (503) 657-4623
Abstract:
The identification and tracking of objects of interest to the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) depends upon detection, measurement/classification, and visualization of the radiation emitted by these objects. Since BMDS operation is strongly tied to imagery, the input of synthetic imagery… More
