Abstract:It is proposed that a Phase I SBIR be conducted to evaluate the feasibility of developing a POSS-based (Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes) coating that performs the multifunctional needs of a conformal coating that actively mitigates tin whisker growth. New conformal coating materials are… more
Abstract:The intent of the proposed research effort is to identify the critical thinking skills that apply particularly to the reasoning and understanding of complex social contexts. The skills set defining this critical thinking capacity would allow soldiers to respond effectively across an array of… more
Abstract:Catastrophic failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. In this effort, a multi-physics suite of tools will be developed based upon the successful Phase I research to provide a comprehensive prognostics and health… more
Abstract:The nightmare scenario in HAZMAT transport (or storage) is an incident in the proximity of a densely populated area. This issue is so critical that Congress has, on a number of occasions, considered restricting HAZMAT transportation, routing it around metropolitan areas. While so far such… more
Abstract:Railroad freight car safety and maintenance cost is directly related to knowledge of the actual braking force provided by a brake shoe. If the brake force is too low, safety is at risk. If the brake shoe is replaced before the end of it's lifetime to ensure safety, maintenance and thus operating… more
Abstract:A wealth of studies involving the effects of army materiel on ground soldier task performance exist, but the flow of data from these studies into ground soldier simulations is slow. Modeling these effects in a ground soldier simulation is important, because it takes into account factors that… more
Abstract:Night vision has been a key enabling technology for the past 30 years that has allowed US pilots to "own the night". In many engagements, our dominance of the nighttime environment was the decisive factor in victory. One of the big disadvantages of night vision systems is that they have not… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose a program to develop a low cost navigation grade Fiber Optic Gyro development program. There has long been a desire to build a low cost fiber optic gyro using single mode fiber, but various noise sources have precluded this dream from being realized. The scientists… more
Abstract:Warfighters operating in a night environment are always in search of more situation awareness. For decades, this situation awareness (SA) has been provided at night via monocular (PVS/7 or PVS/14) night vision goggles or binocular (ANVIS) goggles. Although these systems have served our soldiers… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose a program to develop a double-band shipboard defense laser system (DOSLS) based on our High Energy, and Tunable pulse Optical Source (HETOS) technology for shipboard defense applications and other military and commercial applications. The proposed light system is… more
Abstract:As more flight training is done in simulators instead of aircraft, the effects of simulator sickness on pilots is having a bigger impact on their training schedule. Navy pilots not only have to deal with simulator sickness, but with the compounding effect of being on-board a moving ship, whose… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose a program to develop a highly sensitive receiver for hybrid lidar-radar applications. The receiver, named MILOS_RX, incorporates precision time-of-flight and RF carrier phase measurement which are both critical in hybrid lidar-radar applications. The SA Photonics… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose our Navigation-Grade Fiber Optic Gyro (NFOG). The target application for this NFOG is to provide high accuracy azimuth data for Far Target Locator systems. For this program, the goal is to replace current Digital Magnetic Compass systems with an inertial product… more
Abstract:Increasing bandwidth is becoming essential in today's battlefield due to the level of communication that is necessary to support soldiers fighting in constantly changing hostile conditions. Unfortunately, space based communication systems have lagged behind the development of high data rate land… more
Abstract:The M2DART provides a portable simulator system that can be deployed for a variety of training tasks and at numerous locations around the globe. Although its uncollimated, tiled displays allow for a small footprint, the viewing distance is both close (nominally 36") and varies significantly as a… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is proposing a Phase II program to develop a high speed electro-optic sensor for a high power directed energy power density meter, the SA Photonics' Power density meter (SA-PDM). The SA-PDM utilizes a photonic approach with no active electronic elements in the sensor probe thus… more
Abstract:The declining threat of "superpower" aggression coupled with the increase in activity from asymmetric threats such as rogue states and terrorist groups has motivated the Navy to put much more emphasis on littoral combat. Unfortunately, Littoral waters are typically more turbid than deep ocean… more
Abstract:This Phase II proposal describes a Trusted Radar concept, which is an innovative concept developed by Torch Technologies to support a key BMDS C2BMC function called Sensor Registration Health & Status Monitoring (SRHSM). The Trusted Radar concept is designed to address the significant problems… more
Abstract:In our Phase I effort, we propose to develop a concept that addresses radiation hardening techniques for electro-optical sensor and electronics unit subsystems. This development will demonstrate feasibility of the concept to be incorporated into the BMDS architecture to provide reliable operation… more
Abstract:Study indicates that Model Driven Architecture methods and tools are sufficiently mature and advantageous for use in building software to manage stores on Armed Unmanned Air Systems. The models can be used to optimize and manage the real time and safety critical systems thereby increasing war… more
Abstract:A low power, lightweight hyperspectral imaging system with automated image analysis and data optimization for real time target detection and compression of the hyperspectral data is proposed. The system is designed to fit within the size, weight, and power envelope of a small UAS, is robust and… more
Abstract:An advanced airborne imaging system for fire detection/mapping is proposed. The goal of the project is to improve control and management of wildfires in order to reduce loss of life and property. The system will offer approximately a 3X increase in operating efficiency compared to current systems… more
Abstract:Current deployable solar array systems are based on designs that have been in existence for more than 30 years. In general, these heritage designs can be divided into two classes: 1) hinged-panel arrays, which are mechanically simple but mass inefficient, and 2) tensioned-membrane arrays, which are… more
Abstract:Future Air Force satellites will require large aperture RF antennas for various missions in communications, signals intelligence, and Radar. At the same time, Operation Responsive Space (ORS) is striving to develop small satellite technology to provide flexibility and adaptability to meet new and… more
Abstract:The U.S. Air Force has significant interest in the development of adaptive structures for micro munition platforms. However, power, mass and cost constraints significantly limits the applicability of existing adaptive structure concepts for these smaller platforms. To address these challenges, CTD… 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.
