  1. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...

  2. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...

  3. Ultra-Durable Polyolefin Based Waterproofing Coating

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A16114

    The U.S. Army is interested in the development of innovative materials, films, coatings and technologies or manufacturing techniques which allow current U.S. Army airdrop related hardware and equipment to survive fresh and salt water operations with increased reliability and without damage and significant maintenance impact. Resodyn Corporation proposes for development a durable, moisture-impermea ...

  4. Functional Additive Manufacturing for Printable & Networkable Sensors to Detect Energetics and Other Threat Materials

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A17AT004

    Chemiresistors are an important class of electronic sensors that detect the presence of analytes/chemicals via a change in the resistance of a sensor element. A typical interdigitated electrode array is deposited onto an insulating substrate with metallic electrodes that have feature sizes in the 5-500 m range. The metal electrodes are typically sputter coated onto the substrate, using lithogra ...

  5. Multi-material Additive Manufacturing of RF Electronics

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c) military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space.To accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components.For the case of radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems this will requi ...

  6. Multimodal Non- destructive Evaluation of Internal Surfaces of Holes in Steel Structures

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A16012

    A bore evacuator is generally used in gun barrel of armored fighting vehicles to help prevent poisonous propellant gases from venting back into the fighting compartment. It consists of a ring of holes drilled into the barrel, surrounded by a cylindrical pressure reservoir. Under typical operating conditions, pitting corrosions and stress corrosion cracks can form in the inner walls of those drille ...

  7. Real-Time Camera-Independent Image Processing System For Long-Range Tactical Imaging Applications

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: A15026

    We propose to identify the algorithms, architectures and performance evaluation criteria for real-time, high-resolution, long-range imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The most promising algorithms will be implemented on a hardware acceleration platform. The end-goal for phase 1 is to develop a complete system design ready to be implemented in hardware for real-time video processing of 2Kx2K v ...

  8. Multi-Sensor Radar Processing for Unmanned Convoys

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15073

    The Army often operates in environments with limited visibility, due to smoke, dust, fog, or other visual obscurants, resulting in loss of situational awareness. In some circumstances, the Army may create such environments to provide a tactical advantage over adversaries. In these situations it is necessary to supplement visual data with reliable sensors that can penetrate obscurants. Furthermore, ...

  9. Real-Time Millimeter-Wave Holography for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVE) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...

  10. Lithium Ion / Super Capacitor Hybrid System

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    A hybrid lithium ion battery / super capacitor energy storage device is developed that uses the high power capability of the super capacitor to satisfy pulsed power load requirements such that stress on the lithium ion batteries is reduced. This results in extended discharge time and higher efficiency utilization of the battery stack.
