  1. Models to Address Diplomatic, Information, Military, Economic (DIME) Factors for the Propagation/Evolution of Ideas Through Defined Populations

    SBC: Veloxiti            Topic: A06094

    We propose to evaluate and recommend a set of candidate models of the flow and evolution of population beliefs and intentions as the starting point for developing a deployable DIME Effects Model (DEM) for tactical commanders. DIME (Diplomatic, Information, Military and Economic) seeks to avoid counter-productive and conflicting activities during tactical operations by considering these factors in ...

  2. Uncooled Midwave Focal Plane Array (FPA) and Camera for RPG Detection

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A04117

    Resistive bolometer capability has evolved such that low noise equivalent temperature difference (NETD) can be achieved on a single focal plane array in both the 3-5 µm (MWIR) and 8-13 µm (BBIR) wavelength bands. The objective of this Phase II development is to build a prototype infrared camera for use in Army applications such as rocket propelled grenade and sniper detection. The camera will ha ...

  3. Variable-Resolution Compact 3D Range Imaging Ladar

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A04159

    There is a need for an Obstacle Avoidance System (OAS) for small unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to detect fixed obstacles (e.g., trees, buildings, and wires) and proximity to manned aircraft or other UAVs. Small UAVs impose many different constraints, such as flying close to the ground and limited size, weight and power (SWAP) for system components and on-board processing. Therefore, obstacle avoi ...

  4. Onsite Field-Feeding Waste to Energy Converter

    SBC: COMMUNITY POWER CORPORATION            Topic: A04211

    This Phase II research and development project will result in a first-of-a-kind, prototype, On-site Field-feeding Waste to Energy Converter (OFWEC) capable of converting dry military packaging waste to high quality electricity and heat. Based on successful research in Phase I, the prototype OFWEC will be able to gasify organic wastes such as paper products, plastics, food and miscellaneous materi ...

  5. Geometric Pairing (GP) of battlefield entities thru the Combat Net Radio System (CNRS)

    SBC: Data Fusion Corporation            Topic: A06113

    Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) proposes the development of a prototype Combat Identification (CID) system that will reduce fratricide, increase situational awareness (SA), and enhance combat effectiveness for Soldier-to-Soldier based CID applications. The system design will use GPS, a modified-mobile adhoc network MANET, local ranging signals, mesh network and geometric pairing (GP) that will prov ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Pollution Control Technologies for Use with High Sulfur Fuels


    The state-of-the-art pollution control technology for highway diesel engines is the NOx storage–release (NSR) trap and the catalytic diesel particulate filter (CDPF). The NSR incorporates precious metal and basic functions for oxidizing NO and adsorbing NO2. This makes the device vulnerable to the presence of sulfur oxides in exhaust gas; the adsorber is irreversibly poisoned at fuel sulfur le ...

  8. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide


    This proposed STTR Phase I program addresses design, development, fabrication and testing of a safe, convenient and economical catalytic microreactor that is capable of generating vaporous hydrogen peroxide (VHP) on demand by direct synthesis of hydrogen and oxygen that could be generated by electrolysis of water aboard a portable hydrogen peroxide generator. Phase I will consist of two major and ...

  9. Gaseous, Liquid and Gelled Propellant Hypergolic Reaction Mechanisms


    This proposed STTR Phase I program addresses elucidation of the underlying physics and chemistry associated with ignition delay in hypergolic propulsion systems. More specifically it addresses if the differences observed in ignition delay for liquid and gelled hypergolic propulsion systems are due to mainly physical and/or chemical effects. Proposed mechanisms will be developed for the gas/gas, l ...

  10. Thick PVD Cermet and Graded DLC Coatings for Lubrication-Free Weapon Parts

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: A04006

    The U.S. Army and small-arm weapon manufacturers are interested in surface finishes that are non-polluting and provide durable dry-lubrication, sliding-wear and sand-abrasion resistance, adhesion to weapon part materials, and corrosion protection in high-humidity environments. Engineered Coatings Inc. (ECI) along with Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) have demonstrated the capability to deposit ...
