  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Research in Tool Shape Optimization for Electrochemical Machining

    SBC: Corrdesa            Topic: A16013

    Electrochemical Machining (ECM) is controllable and scalable, harnessing corrosion to deliver the unique capability of machining complex shapes comprising very hard materials in relatively benign electrolytes. ECM tools have traditionally been designed by trial and error, which is time-consuming and expensive, making the process optimization and project management very difficult. The ECM process i ...

  7. Multi-Band Body Wearable Antenna

    SBC: WANG ELECTRO-OPTO CORPORATION            Topic: A16033

    Under SBIR Topic A16-033, Multi-Band Body Wearable Antenna (MBWA), the U.S. Army seeks a new body wearable antenna design capable of operating effectively in multiple radio frequency bands and with various modulation techniques to provide a minimum range of 0.5 KM when both the transmitter and receiver are situated in horizontal positions on the ground. The MBWA will need to operate effectively in ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
