Abstract:Arete Associates has developed a compact lightweight lidar system for precision bathymetry and topography suitable for operation from a small tactical unmanned aerial vehicle. The subject of this Phase 2 SBIR is to adapt this existing system to perform submarine detection,… more
Abstract:Arete Associates will develop and deliver autonomous image processing algorithms that execute in real-time onboard unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) neutralizers. The real-time image enhancement algorithms mitigate backscatter, surface effects, and platform video motion using… more
Abstract:Vehicle fires from FEM/IED attacks present multiple threats to personnel; an initial short duration fire from the products of combustion/explosion of the FEM/IED and a secondary, longer duration fire from ignition of vehicle fuel, tires, engine, or the surrounding environment.… more
Abstract:Solid state RF and millimeter wave weapons systems require substantial power to operate. Pure solid state systems have limited energy density and require charging over the typical use cycle. The directed energy system must be compact enough to mount on a vehicle such as a HMMWV,… more
Abstract:The Phase I of this SBIR completed the design, fabrication, and demonstration of a prototype heavy fuel engine for the Class X USV, and also completed the preliminary design of the waterjet propulsor as well as the preliminary design of the systems and the integration with the hull. Phase II of the… more
Abstract:…, our team will develop a multi-spectral long wave infrared sensor that will exploit the restrstrahlen effect for the silicate-based soils that dominate the southern border between the United States and Mexico. The sensor will operate while integrated onto a vehicle moving… more
Abstract:…e shown 80% improvement in closed compartment fire-suppression and post burn protection is achievable by implementing induction charging into aqueous based automatic fire extinguishing systems. CFDRC will capitalize on these results to provide military tactical vehicles with an… more
Abstract:… of various tissues and organs and a GUI framework will be established to enable generation of injury biomechanics models and simulations. In phase I we will conduct model validation simulations of human body responses to a free filed blast and a human sitting in a combat … more
Abstract:As air vehicle speeds increase, air breathing engine and inlet technology follow through concurrent supersonic performance requirements. The recent ability to build smaller supersonic engines has established a void in small air vehicle inlet capability. A solution to decrease… more
Abstract:… the need for boost pumps, reduce turbopump stage count and weight, increase efficiency, increase margins of safety and reliability, and reduce propellant tank weights through lower pressurization requirements. The technology will open up the turbopump/engine/vehicle… more
Abstract:On today"s battlefields, vehicles are at risk of encountering improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Fortunately, not all of these result in complete vehicle loss. Following events at both ends of the severity spectrum, Battle Damage Assessment and Repair (BDAR) and event… more
Abstract:… their full capability. This will lead to turbine engine performance benefits in future gas turbine engines resulting in very significant SFC reductions. Civilian transportation and power generation sectors will be aided as well as air and sea based military vehicles… more
Abstract:…ics and the precision involved. FBS is proposing to develop a novel guided wave phased array transducer for large area inspection from a single probe position. The newly designed sensor could be used by divers or integrated into an underwater remotely piloted vehicle to… more
Abstract:Directed electromagnetic (RF, microwave and millimeter wave) energy offers unique and flexible options for non-lethal weapons, but the technology for these systems needs to achieve smaller and lighter packaging. Of particular interest are the Multi-frequency RF Vehicle Stopper… more
Abstract:The future net-centric military provides enhanced battlefield awareness through wireless links between unmanned aerial vehicles, high-speed aircraft, rotary-winged platforms, and soldiers on the ground. To support this, platforms must accommodate a variety of antennas, not to… more
Abstract:…of the greatest operational and tactical advantages our troops have. The SATCOM terminals available pose a number of practical constraints resulting in less than universal usage. Traditional reflectors are high profile and difficult to integrate on aircraft and ground vehicles.… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
