  1. A Small Image-aided Navigation And Path-planning System (SINAPS) for UAVs

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: A07001

    The proposing team will continue the development, testing, and productization of a Small, Image-aided Navigation and Autonomous Path-planning System (SINAPS) for UAVs. The SINAPS utilizes a capable suite of sensors together with state-of-the-art computing to enable real-time autonomous sensing and maneuvering at high speeds even in obstacle-rich environments. Due to the limitations and power req ...

  2. Edge-pumped Composites for Ultra-Short Pulse (USP) Lasers

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: A08047

    Aqwest proposes to develop a novel edge-pumped composite disk laser amplifier for ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers offering operation at high-average power (HAP) at near-diffraction limited beam quality (BQ). The project will produce an amplifier for USP laser with the following major benefits to the Army and the DOD: 1) Transverse absorbed pump distribution uniformity >90% 2) Less than 1/20 of wave ...

  6. Stability Operations Systems Learning Environment

    SBC: eCrossCulture            Topic: OSD07CR5

    We propose a methodical analysis of SSTR operations since World War II. We will identify training objectives based on a large network of civil affairs officers, interpreters, military intelligence, USAID, State Department, and NGO interviewees currently in use on other projects. We will identify eight events since WW II containing a range of SSTR operations. We'll use these events to analyze va ...

  7. Low Cost, Improved Thermal Batteries

    SBC: Mobile Energy Products, Inc.            Topic: A06038

    MEPI has developed inexpensive continuous process manufacturing techniques for the production of thermal battery electrodes and separators. These cell components are flexible and as a result can be used to fabricate thermal batteries that have three-dimensional shapes. Electrodes using these techniques have been fabricated and have demonstrated performance superior to that of pressed pellet electr ...

  8. Anion Exchange Membrane-Modified Electrodes for Alkaline Fuel Cells


    The direct methanol alkaline fuel cell (DMAFC) is under development as an alternative power source for lightweight, portable applications. Several advantages of the alkaline fuel cell make it superior to direct methanol PEM fuel cells. Namely, the improved electrokinetics of fuel oxidation in alkaline environments make it possible to use a variety of fuels and inexpensive, non-noble catalysts wh ...

  9. Advanced Nanostructured Powders for Cold Spray Applications


    In this project, Eltron will develop a method for spray drying agglomerates of nanoparticles for use in the cold spray process. These agglomerates will allow the nanoparticles to be cold sprayed, resulting in coatings and structures with superior strength and hardness. Nanosized particles will be dispersed in a solvent with a metallic binder precursor and spray dried under controlled atmosphere to ...
