  1. Innovative Technologies for Detection and Discrimination of Surface and Buried Explosive Hazards

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: A15108

    Detecting buried in road or roadside explosive threats is a major problem facing the Army on todays battlefield. Recent studies have shown that Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) imaging polarimeters can detect these threats; however, the implementation of the polarimeters has not been traceable to a ruggedized, field ready imaging system. Guidestar Optical Systems proposes to develop an imaging LWIR polar ...

  2. Low-cost Rapid Stand-off Detection of Explosives

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A16011

    Detection and neutralization of explosive hazards including Home Made Explosives (HMEs) and Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) is an important problem for U.S. Army. IED attacks accounted for 62% of all U.S. casualties in Operation Enduring Freedom and are now accepted as a significant threat to homeland security and the U.S. forces all over the world. Hence, from a detection perspective, a capab ...

  5. Multi-Band Body Wearable Antenna

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: A16033

    Having successfully completed a Phase II program culminating in the delivery of 50 prototype SINCGARS antennas, FIRST RF understands the challenges of body-wearable antenna design and implementation. Given its substantial scope, FIRST RF recognizes that there is considerable risk involved in the Phase I effort. However, instead of starting from square one, FIRST RF will be able to leverage past wo ...

  6. Mission Command Enhanced Situational Awareness Display


    As sensors on the battlefield increase at an exponential rate, the amount of information available to Commanders and Staff of Army Mission Command is, at best, overwhelming. New technologies are emerging, specifically in Augmented Reality (AR), that show great promise to not only helping manage and share information to the Commanders at all levels, but also effectively increase their Situational A ...

  7. Digital Readout Integrated Circuits With Efficient, Low Power On-chip Data Compression

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A16040

    There is a continuing push for very large format, very high dynamic range, very fast frame rate digital Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (IRFPAs) by the DOD community. Some emerging applications require FPA data rates >100 Gb/s; for commonly used Low Voltage Differential Signal (LVDS) output circuits with 1 Gb/s capability, this translates to 100 pairs of Dewar feedthrough wires creating un-manageable ...

  8. A Smart High Temperature Pressure Sensor for Abrams Engine Stall Detection

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: A16073

    The Abrams turbine engine (AGT-1500) is currently suffering from an issue in which the compressor stalls, creating a surge event that causes significant damage to the fourth stage of the low pressure compressor There is a need for a viable system for measuring the early onset or precursors of rotating stall in real-time on an operational turbine engine, which can detect a surge event in order to t ...

  9. Pseudo-Satellite Antenna for GPS Signal Rebroadcast

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: A14066

    Since the first NAVSTAR GPS satellite was launched over 35 years ago, GPS has grown into one of the most important and widespread technologies used by modern military systems. These modern systems rely heavily on conventional GPS signals for position, navigation, and timing (PNT) functions and these mission-critical systems could be rendered inaccurate or inoperable if even a portion of the imping ...

  10. Innovative Fire Control Radar Technology for Improved Sensing and Engagement of Tactical Short-Range Airborne Threats


    PRA proposes to mature to TRL-5 the existing hardware and software for the Orthogonal Interferometer (OI) radar and Precision Pulse Positioning System (3PS) guidance capability developed under previous Phase I, Phase II and Enhanced Phase II contracts. The OI radar uses waveform diversity for enhanced radar tracking and endgame guidance performance to support the IFPC2 mission, achieving enhanced ...
